Flowers in the Wind

One mistake can change your life, it really can. My mistake was less of one mistake and more of a series of mistakes leading up to one big one. It started with Michael, led to the wild parties and pot smoking, and then came to a screeching halt with that joint they found in my purse. Michael's joint. Fuck Michael.

But when you reach bottom and there's nowhere to go but up, things can start to get better. I reached my bottom immediately following the joint in the purse incident, when I was sent to spend the summer with my grandmother. And then life gave me Brian.
