A New Me
My name is Aimee and I live DC. In elementary school I was the perfect straight A student with the best attendance. But starting freshman year in highschool I was falling off. I realized being the good girl that I was known as was not fun and cool. I began skipping school and I hung out with a different crowd of people. When I was first offered to smoke marijuana I was unsure but then I thought, this is a one time only what harm can it do? After that day I always smoked weed, most of my money went to weed and the money for food when I had the "munchies". I even started to drink. I was never satisfied, I always either had to smoke or drink or I felt I was nothing. They both became an addiction. I skipped school so much in highschool I finally got kicked out. Getting kicked out then made me have some type of heart. I was careless when I did drugs but I knew I had some potential in me for the future. So I moved and lived with my grandma for a year and I knew I changed into a completely new person. I felt good about myself and didn't care if I was called a nerd. I just shrugged it off & said that at least I'll have a better reputation and win more money on my own in the future. I never knew I could change after the strong addiction I had. Im glad I did.
