Hi M. Parchem,
Gotta love genius teenagers, eh? :) Luckily there is an easy fix.

Open up a terminal (Goto Applications --> Accessories --> Terminal.
Now copy & paste the following 2 commands into your terminal. This will delete your default keyring password.

cd ~/.gnome2/keyrings
rm default.keyring

Now you will need to reboot. After rebooting, connect to your wireless network. You will need to enter your wireless encyption key (the password to connect to your wireless network - as set in your router). After entering the key for your wireless network, you will be prompted to choose a new password for your default keying.
