a matter of life (1) worst years of my life

It's pretty hard to say what were the worst years of my life. But no how bad got I never broke down completely. When I hit a brick wall in one area of my life, I would try something different. You know what say. Every time god closes a door, he opens a window.

After I got out of high school, I a lot of things I had started. The first few years after high school were awful. I had no saleable skills, I couldn't even type. All I could do was be a laborer or a stock clerk. This kind of work is a so you won't be surprised to learn that I drifted from one job to another during those years.

I even tried the Navy but I kicked out, because, believe it or not, I couldn't pass the inspection. I've always had trouble doing stuff people told me to do I really wanted to do it. If I wasn't interested in doing what I was to do, I would blank out and they were telling me went in one ear and out the other.

I remember coming back from the Navy and walking across this schoolyard in these second-hand clothes I'd given. The Navy was supposed to be my last resort, now it was . I was devastated. I went back to working crummy jobs that I hated and I quitting. Finally, I decided, with nowhere else to go, to go to college full time and work part time.
