Today is the Halloween Dance (well, the black & orange dance) and I am very excited. There are so many reasons to be excited for such a fun thing, and I really hope everyone is just as excited as I am. The first reason I am excited to go to the dance later today is because of the music!! I love music in general, but to be able to dance and scream lyrics DURING school hours is way better because 1. You don’t have to be sitting in a desk writing and learning and 2. you aren’t alone, you are with 600 other kids that like the same music as you! (Well, mostly…..) I am really excited this year especially because they got some really good songs out that I can’t wait to hear such as “Moves Like Jagger”, “Party Rock Anthem” and “Last Friday Night (TGIF)”.. The second reason why I am excited for the dance this afternoon is because you have to be given the privilege to go, you can’t just walk in and have 10 missing work assignments incomplete. I think this is a good thing because then you really feel like you have a goal if you DO have missing work, to get it done, and if you DON’T have any missing work, going to the amazing dance will motivate you to keep your grades up, and to always hand assignments in on time, so then you don’t get missing work piling up. The last reason why I think the dance is going to be amazing is because I would like to compare it to the AYC dance I went to last week! I would like to see what our dances have that the AYC dances don’t, or vice versa. One thing I know we DON’T have at our dances that I loved at the AYC dance was they had strobe lights, if you don’t know what those are, they are bright white lights that make everyone’s movements seem SUPER fast, which is really cool when everyone is doing the dance to “Thriller”. Maybe there should be a suggestion box?? 🙂 Anyway, I hope everyone has a great time at the dance later on today!!!
