First off, i would just like to say that I love the idea of this community. Music is so important to me and I always find songs that are relevant to my life. Now I can finally tell those stories.

I was listening to this song at around 11:30 last night and realized it was the story of my life right now. I'm a sophomore in high school, and there's senior boy in my school who I've sort admired from afar all year. He's a complete nerd, 4.0 GPA, glasses and all. I didn't really have a huge crush on him (though I'll admit I got a little infatuated), but I wanted to talk to him and get to know him...I want him around. Being the shy person that I am, I hardly talked to him all year long. Then just recently I got the courage to ask him to prom. He basically told me that he wasn't sure if he was going or not. I waited the whole next week waiting for a real answer from him. I never got it.

A couple of his friends thought that I was not good enough for him and I shouldn't be able to go to prom with him because I am only a sophomore. They said some things that really hurt, but then again a lot of my friends (who are also seniors) said some very nice things. I don't know if any of that had an effect on his actions. I was disappointed more because I had put him on this pedestal and he fell off.

I don't know if he thought I was weird or what. But all I wanted was to get to know him, and now there is only 15 days left until the seniors leave for summer. My only regret is not talking to him sooner, and sometimes I wish I could go back and do that. But whenever I hear this song, I will remember my awkward sophomore year of high school, and I'll remember him and how I never got to experience "not-my-prom".
