Lost. Where to go from here?

Hi yall,

fair warning this might be a bit of a rant

I'm a Junior at the Kelley School of Business not in any workshops graduating early after this summer semester. I was aiming for Investment Banking when I first started college, GPA was on par and I was attending a lot of events but once coronavirus hit and school went online my motivation plummeted. I fell into a bit of a rut. Depressed smoking weed in my room all day and doing the bare minimum to just get by. I realized I had undiagnosed ADHD last semester and my grades have gotten much better since we are in person however I am still sitting at a 3.2 GPA with no internship experience and only a couple of years of a no-name insurance sales firm under my belt. I don't even know what I want to do in the field anymore. Plan was to get CFP because I can convert my insurance clients but I hate sales and had to drink before every meeting. I never want to go through that again in my life. I have no idea what my options could be now because my GPA is so low and my school is not very high ranking if you're not in a workshop. What options do I really have anymore with my stats and how can I recover?

What are your plans for this summer?Β

I have none so far besides classes and if I don't come up with an alternative plan to study for my CFP. This is why I sort of posted this thread. I'm just starting to get back up on my feet and wanted to know what general direction I could go in.Β
