Need help and/or ideas please!!

<p>So I am graduating this year from high school. I have to admit my grades have been somewhat lackluster and I did not take my high school grades seriously. I believe I am a smart person, but just made dumb mistakes. I plan on going to college but I am going to attend a community college for my first two years and then transfer into a 4-year. My overall career goal is to become a lawyer. I realize this is not really a question, but any tips or ideas on what to do after I graduate would be much appreciated.</p>
