My parents ALWAYS pushed on me for grades and everything like drugs and the likes, and look what happened to me. I barely graduated with a little above a 2.0 GPA thanks to the grace of my teachers, I've honestly done more drugs than I'd like to admit(but hey, we're all family here, right?
), and I had my fair share of hangovers as well. You seem like a strong headed person who when they want something, they set their sites on it and do anything they can to obtain it.
You've always been one of my favorites on the KUSA boards Leed, and that'll never change. I know we haven't talked much lately, but I can honestly say that it would be awesome to meet you someday and just hang out and enjoy life as it is, one giant adventure.
