    I skipped a few college lessons due to being

    hungover. But I always made it into college at some point.

    Smoked weed. Watching movies stoned.

    Listening to music. Then I wondered why I had so many F's.

    Kinda, Sorta

    So, I used to ditch my 'student aide' class and go home early...except that before I took off, I'd always 'check in' so the teacher could mark me as present. That kind of counts, right?

    I still do....honestly skipping has always been

    something that I just do on a whim. Usually, because I'm either going to be bored, fight with a teacher, or I have something better to do.

    I don't even know why I go to this class

    anymore. it's a 50 minute course and meets 3 days a week. the professor is old, boring, and repeats himself at LEAST 3 times. he doesn't do this so that we learn the material. he could care less whether we succeed in his class or not. he repeats himself because he goes off on...

    Gym Class.

    I always hated gym class. Well that gym class. The woman would make us run the whole perimeter of the school. It was a giant school too. So one day, when everyone was doing warm-ups me and my friend walked right out the door without anyone noticing. We would just walk around...

    Is Being Listless An Excuse??

    The policy here at my school is bonkers. Teachers won't take your word for being sick. So yea, I skip class, but its not fair when the teachers don't believe I'm actually sick. I don't feel like going to the doctor every single time I have a  small cold. Its like going to...

    I did it once in my life in 7th grade.

    I was late again for math class which wasn't my fault. My typing class was right across the hall from the senior side of the cafeteria and I was short compared to the seniors 5'5 I think that's how tall I am but anyway I had tried to explain to my math teacher why I was late but...

    Haven't We All?

    I've skipped classes a few times. In college, most teachers won't really care if you show up or not, it's just a matter of how well you do during tests like midterms and finals. But back in high school, it was somewhat exciting to skip classes. That feeling of breaking rules...

    Plenty of Times

    Yeah well I didn't feel like going a lot of times and of course, I didn't.  Never had to pay dearly for it yet.  I always make tests days.  I've been fortunate in my class-ditching days.

    It was Latin class of my sophomore year.

    This kid in my class randomly decided to kick my shin. It hurt like hell, and I walked out of class and started crying in the empty auditorium. I expected a teacher or someone to hear me and calm me down, but after 45 minutes, no one had noticed my wails. I decided then to just...

    Especially When I'm Tired.

     Sleep is sacred to me. I am not a happy camper when I don't get my shut-eye. Therefore, I figure I'm doing my fellow classmates a favor by occasionally not showing up to my 7:30am class when I haven't had enough sleep. I'd bite everyone's head off and then fall asleep at my...

    I skipped so much that I'm surprised I didn't fail any classes. It was almost daily, and I always managed to get out of trouble. Once and a while I would use these guidance slips to get out of class. You just took a slip, and gave it to the teacher and told them you had an...

    That was back in college. Honestly, if you know the material you don't absolutely need to go to every class. Some teachers are good at wasting your time.
