10 Things to Do If You Don't Get Asked To Prom

Hi Guys!
So at my school, the Junior Prom is coming up which is super exciting. All my friends are planning their dates,  renting their dresses, and practicing for Promenade. (Before you ask, no I did not get asked)

Promenade: N/V 
[ˌpräməˈnād,präm ˈnäd] 
A strange tradition in my town where all the juniors that go to prom are presented to the town and forced to do an awkward dance in front of THOUSANDS of people

Anyways, this leaves us to wonder, what do you do if you AREN'T going to prom? Obviously, you can't wallow in despair and eat ice cream all day. You need to make cool plans that are totally bragworthy so when everybody starts posting prom pictures, you can post pictures of yourself doing something WAY cooler like skydiving, chatting at a coffee shop with your favorite celeb, or something along those lines.
Okay, so maybe that isn't so practical... BUT, here is my list of ten things that you can do to to make your not-prom AWESOME!!!

#1 DIY Backyard Pool - Need I say more...

#2 Go get your nails done - These emoji nails are DA BOMB!!!
Cool Emoji Nail Art...:

#3 Build A Fort - I HIGHLY recommend this method (#noeffort)
Me and Slade tried this this weekend and it was awesome!! So simply but so fun!!!:

#4 Fill Balloons with paint and pin them to a canvas. Then, proceed with the darts... 
I have always wanted to do this!!!!
Tape or tack paint-filled balloons to a canvas and pop them using darts. Let the paint splatter wherever it goes and see how it turns out:

Jumbo Jenga - would be fun at a Fourth of July party:
#6 Make Pinterest-Worthy Food

#7 Go to a dress store and try on dresses just for the heck of it. 
Darling, NYC....Darling is a small, West Village shop known for its wide variety of dress options. No matter what the event, from black tie to more casual cocktails, you'll be able to find what you're looking for here. If you're in search of one-of-a-kind pieces, head downstairs for the store's unique, vintage finds. The best part of the Darling experience is that the inventory is updated at least once a week.:

#8 Crash another city's prom - What... you could totally do this!! Nobody would know you.
#9 Print out pictures from all over the world and make a cute scrapbook of all the places you want to go.
