So i'm a senior in high school. My parents are pretty strict and have always had a very strict anti drinking and anti drug policy. My dad's a hardass, you know those kind of parents. Just a little background info.
So over the past year or so, I've been in a lot of trouble. I made some stupid mistakes, was arrested twice (once for editing/selling a season's pass to my local mountain and another time for stealing from the mall) and i have also gotten in trouble for stashing alcohol and weed in my room (parents found it, got pissed, etc.). So basically the past year or so has been really tough and i've been in a lot of trouble and i've had to rethink alot of my habits and my lifestyle really. I've been to therapy to deal with the weed and drinking and stealing problems (basically i just make poor decisions) and have gotten myself on a better track in life. I am doing great in school now and hope to be a doctor one day.
So tonight I am with some friends, and they want to go to a party. Now the weather is bad and these kids have been known to drink and drive before so instead of letting them go and worrying all night about whether or not they are safe (and also because a close friend of mine died in a DWI car accident last spring) i offered to be designated driver for the night.
Long story short, i take them to this party, my mom calls, i tell her i am at still at my friend's house just hanging out b/c i dont want to get in trouble AGAIN, she calls my other friend (who is drunk and in another room in the house so idk she called him until later) and his story doesn't match up. She calls me and my story falls apart so i just tell her the truth.
So now i'm in trouble for lying and being at a party even though i was finally making a smart decision for once and not drinking or smoking or doing anything illegal and I was just making sure my friends were safe and would get home safe that night. I think it's ridiculous. Like seriously, I get in trouble all the time for making dumb decisions, and now I finally make a smart one and I get in trouble for that too. Like is there anything I can do that won't get me in trouble?
Just needed to kinda vent there. Thanks to anyone who took the time to read that, you can reply if you want but you don't have to. And please don't criticize me too much, that's what my therapist is for. I just needed to do this to settle down and get my thoughts straight.
