So a few days ago i had been really really stoned and i put my bulb and lighter in my pants pocket. The next day my dad is rummaging through my stuff and finds it. They are pretty pissed (my mom, not my dad he said i should have asked him, he used to be a pretty big pothead himself). However, here is my story and the reason for the BUT. Freshmen year in HS i had a 2.8 gpa, pretty bad but it was a tough school (top 10 in the nation). Sophomore Year i struggled with depression of sorts and i had a 2.07. However, the summer between Sophomore and Jr year i started smoking alot. Able to relax and think with clarity, I maintained a 3.2 gpa throughout my junior year. This year, i finished the first semester (my senior year) with a 3.93 unweighted gpa (all AP's except for french ). I got accepted into Boston College and can't wait to leave. I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to how to bring this point up to my parents, they are very oldschool and very INDIAN (IMO worse than asian parents). I know about the health benefits stuff but thats not my goal, i want to show them that its not affecting me, if anything its helping me. I also have my medicinal marijuana card so they can't quite say that I'm doing something illegal. Anyway thanks for the help and yes i know my grades blew but still i turned myself around and am going to a good university which i hope to transfer from to an Ivy, but thats another story entirely.
