What Was I Thinking :-(

The truth is I wasn't thinking, at all. I've made a alot mistakes in my short lifetime, but this one tops them all. A kid in my class brought a fire cracker that explodes on impact to school (If you can see where this is going). He said he was going to throw it in the ag shop (practical joke right). Due to my sense for thrill I told him I'd give him a couple bucks for it then I was gonna make it pop. Well I whimped but another person told me they'd do it, I handed him the firecracker. He threw it, it exploded , teacher got mad. Where'd you get that he asked, expecting only a lecture he said, Trent gave it to me. Well he should've expected more. The teacher said we where both getting referiils, Me for bringing it to school, and my friend for popping it. I tryed to be a good friend but I couldn't do it, so I told him who I got it from and the person denied it. He emptied his pockets in proof but the teacher saw particles from the fire cracker he picked them up and examined them. He new thats where the fire cracker came from so my teacher called the principle and we where all three escorted to the office. We were taken into different rooms where we had to fill out paper explaining excactly what happend. They came and talked to us searched us (This is where they found my phone and ipod) then discused our punishment. I was to finish the rest of the day in ISS( In School Suspension) and the all of the next day, and I got a three hour thursday night school for my phone and Ipod. The person who threw it had to serve the rest of the day in ISS and two more days of it. I do not know how much trouble the person who brought it in was in. However I didn't see him the rest of the day I'm assuming he got OSS ( Out of School Suspension), Or case. Case is where a police stands over you and your not allowed to do anything but work , You have to pack your lunch, and your parents must take you to or from school.

My parents most likely would not aprove of me discusing this publicly. However I disagree this opened my eyes alot It showed me that in order to succeed in life you have to not only want to but work to achieve success. I learned that irrational decisions cost alot, for instance My reputation, My parents reputation, and My entire family's reputation. I learned that if dont come to the realization that it's a tuff world I won't succed in life unless I change my perspective on life . I have now know I have to practice, Dicsipline, Self Control, Persistance (as in knowing when to and when not to persist), Making the right desicions, and work to acheive acedemic success. I now understand that all the lecturing and discipline that I have received from my family was only for my benefit. I now know that they weren't trying to change me only to make me understand that in order to benefit in life that change is always neccesary. This whole ordeal hit me hard and I feel that I have learned alot from it.
