    I Will Be a Lawyer Someday

    My name is Megan, I am 15 years old. I lived with meth for 3 and half years. My Dad just got busted for cooking meth about a month ago. I knew what was going on, but I didn't want my Dad to get into trouble, so I never said anything to anyone. I didn't even let my best friends come over, because I was so embarrassed.

    I'm not 100% sure, but I think this is my Dad's fourth time in prison, third time for meth. The thing that I really hate is that now everyone thinks that because my dad cooked meth (never on our property) that he is a bad parent. That is so far from the truth. It kills me to walk down the halls at school and hear the whispers) "isn't that that one guy's daughter", "didn't her Dad get busted for meth", "look. She must do it too". My Dad was always a good parent and though he made his mistakes, I still love him with all of my heart. I really miss my Dad, and now I have to live with my grandparents because my Mom is living here on house arrest. She just got out of county jail two days ago for maintaining a common nuisance and the sad thing is my parents aren't even together. I've had a rough childhood, but I've come out on top despite everything. I have dreams and goals; I want to be a lawyer someday. Maybe I can get my Dad out of prison!
