I was the perfect daughter…the perfect student. But my freshman year of college, I started smoking a lot of pot. It became a daily, multiple times daily occurrence, and it got in the way of life. I ended up literally forgetting that I had a class on my schedule, and never showed up for it, leaving me with an F. Needless to say, my poor decisions and heavy influences from others, left me with a 1.8 GPA my first semester, and I was on academic probation. Talk about a wake up call! I spoke to my parents and they got me a therapist who helped me get my life and focus back on track. I am so blessed today to be a happily married mother of two, an elementary school teacher, and currently studying for my double masters!
