    Kind Of A Problem, Honestly...

    I attempted college right out of high school...big mistake.  I just wasn't mature enough to hack it.Having said that, my first year I took a history class.  I can't for the life of me remember if it was required or an elective...but I hated that class!  I have no problems with...

    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...

    Many Times

    I used to go to every class at school but in my final year I skipped quite a few classes. I didn't go to my psychology, computing, or hospitality classes all of the time. Instead i'd hide in the toilets or go into town. In my first year of uni I didn't bother going to a class if...

    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.

    Yeah..

    When I was in college, but never back in high school.  I didn't do it often though.  I'd skip a class because I was just plain too tired; I'd skip a 'not-so-important lecture' to finish writing a paper or studying for a test for a 'more important class' that...

    2/3 Kinds of School

    I've never skipped a college class here in Ohio unless I really was sick - and that only happened once (a migraine kept me home from history class one day) But I have multiple times skipped high school days just because I was tired or had a bit of a headache when I woke up. ...

    Not On Purpose, But I Did It! Lol!

    It has been many years since I was even in school, but I will admitt I have skipped class. I had ahabbit of misplacing my schedule, so I would not know where i was suposed to be. When it would happen, I'd just go to the library, uusually. It wasn't as if you could very well take...

    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'm actually doing that today.

    See, I'd rather have a legit absence record than one consistent of tardiness. And it's tardiness that makes me sick. And so I'm sick today. Yet I'm energetic enough to do (extra) homework. Pfft. When will I learn..

    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'm Surprised I Didn't Fail...

    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...

    It's Been A Long Time.

    I dropped out of high school when I was fifteen... which was a really stupid decision on my part, but anyway, I used to skip class all the time with my friends for no reason. Just to escape another boring day of school, I guess.

    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.

     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...
