Expulsion Reformation All That Stuff

So, I used to smoke pot. I don't know if I can talk about that here, but I did. I smoked a lot at school, pretty much every day, and I eventually got caught.

I go to a Christian school. Please don't make this a religion thing, but just know that I do. A few guys in an apartment farther down the street got busted with some crap, so they instituted random room searches. So, I started keeping my stuff in my car. It was safer there. Then, the brakes went out in my car, so I had to take it into the shop. Obviously, I couldn't leave it in my car. Well, during the 3 days it was in the shop, my room got searched, and I got busted. I got kicked out for the semester.

That's a large part of the reason I haven't been frequenting this site for the last few months. I moved home for a while until I could find a job and get back into school. I haven't played a game since then, really, aside from a little Street Fighter 4. It's also the reason I haven't had the money to upgrade more, so I haven't been keeping up on the latest stuff.

Now, I've been clean nearly 3 months. I got accepted back to school, and got my job back. Life is looking up. So, I'm back. Not that anyone particularly missed me, but now I am here yet again. Hopefully I can avoid doing more unnecessary upgrade until I really get back into gaming, but who knows. You guys always manage to suck me back in.

So, to summarize, don't do drugs. It's illegal, and the consequences suck. Even if you don't consider it morally wrong, that doesn't mean the rest of the world won't take a dump on you if you get caught. So, just to be safe, it's best to at the very least avoid making a habit of drug use. Being completely clean is obviously the best course of action, but if nothing else, recreational use is far less likely to have life-altering consequences, like my use did.

End of morality speech.

I look forward to contributing to the community again, and look forward to learning more and more all the time.
