When I started high school as a geeky freshman, I only had a couple of friends.
I was not into video games or paintball.
I liked being outside in nature with plants and animals. A lot of people poked fun of me at school and I was always picked last for projects and games. The high school experience was extremely difficult until I discovered I had a real knack for botany. I grew lots of different types of plants, but I loved all of the ones that were odd and dangerous. I found a person that had a couple of marijuana seeds and I bought one of the seeds for the price of a new telescope. I had a little trouble keeping the plant alive in the beginning, but I managed to grow a healthy and large plant. The marijuana was filled with seeds, but eventually I figured out how to get rid of the plants with seeds. In a year, I was growing six or eight marijuana plants down by the creek. No one knew the location of the plants, but I was suddenly the most popular guy in school. I had two or three pounds of dried marijuana during each harvest and I sold the dried flower to all of the people at school. I had a ton of money in my pocket and sudden respect from everyone in the school. I thought I was on top of the world until the sheriff discovered my plants and chopped them down. I lost a huge harvest and a lot of people were mad.
