When I was younger, my grades were excellent. I was the weird kid no one wanted to work on a project with, but now, I'd give anything to be the weirdo who got good grades. Nowadays I'm just a weirdo.
I have ADHD, and I took medication for it all my young life. I also did not have access to a computer most of the time. My main problems started in high school, but I should have seen it coming in middle school, when I was allowed regular computer access if I finished my homework. I would often bullshit my work to get computer time and then do the real work later. I kept on top of stuff though, so I figured it wasn't a big deal.
Big mistake. Huge mistake.
Fast forward to high school. I was at a school where we were given computers. Yeah, they had restrictions, but it was a computer nonetheless, and to say I used it too much is an incredible understatement. My grades were on the brink of failing, and I just barely managed to pull off a miracle save at the end of the year. That was with a computer with restrictions and with my mom monitoring my time as best she could.
As soon as I got out of high school, I started attending community college, which is where I am now. I also got off Ritalin on the basis that I was paranoid it would give me heart problems. Now that I think about it, the only thing that's probably going to give me a heart attack is my shitty diet. But I digress.
