...I had a similar experience to you except that i had my screw-up in High School and thus went to a local school for a year to get good grades and transfer. Five years later i have graduated from a very good college and work at a job I love, so there is light at the end of the tunnel if you are willing to put in the work....but it is a long tunnel. You are going to have to work really hard and break old habits...maybe even cut loose some old friends if they are pushing you in the wrong direction. It will be arduous, but if it wasnt arduous every kid in community college would do it. Remeber that every student at your school thinks they are going to do really well and transfer to a better college, but for 95% that will not be the case. See it as a challenge...the first in a long line of challenges that will encompass the rest of your life. Not to rain on the feel-good party but that's the way it is.
