I was once a 3.0-4.0 student in school but something happened in high school. I became depressed and would ditch school constantly, not do homework, I even drew pictures on my tests. I don't know what it was. Maybe my parents' divorce. Then I went to jr college and did poor there too but I was under shutter circumstances. My father had gotten arrested and went to jail and later prison for life. On top of that I couldn't afford a car and I was working so I had to bike to school, then work, then home. Shit was ridiculous. I ending up failing or dropping half of my classes. Fast forward 4 1/2 years, I'm 23 and in the Air Force. I have matured and changed completely. I signed up for college again and they told me I'm still on academic probation, 4 1/2 years later. This is some bullshit. I know I fucked up before but I was 18-19 and I clearly changed. I used to never go to class and do drugs and shit. Shit sucks. I can only take 1 class at a time until my GPA raises.
