Somehow, I managed to push through and not fail any of my classes. But I ended up with low grades.
Second year came to and the same thing happened. My girlfriend did the same thing but this time she demanded more. She wanted me to stay for weekends over at her place, then sooner later Fridays as well. This really impacted my studies. My priorities started to shift, school work being second and making her first on my list of priorities. Then spring of 2013 on the 3th of March my grandma passed away. I hit rock bottom. I got depress and started to miss classes due to that. Attendance went down along with my studies. But I thought I could pull myself out of it. Being the independent person that I am, I thought that I could do everything on my own but I was wrong. Sooner later my grades went down and I seemed to have hit a wall.

I received word from my brother, sister, uncle and my cousin that my grandpa had had a stroke and that he is in the hospital. I knew that if I left La Crosse my school work would gone down, and so I stayed not knowing that I could have gotten a doctor’s note saying that my grandpa was in the hospital due to a stroke. So I got depressed again, but this time I...
