    Everyone Deserves A Vacation Day Once In A While ;)

    At my school you can miss up to 6 days before you have to take all of your finals. I've never missed more than 6 days in a year and I have always kept straight near A's. So a personal day to just lounge around and sleep is usually my 'skipped' days. And ironically my skipping...

    On Occassion

    I have only skipped class a couple times, actually. I have skipped when I felt "off." It was just too hard to drag myself to class. Also when it was a friggin blizzard out and every school in the state canceled classes except mine wtf is that about? So I didn't go...

    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...

    The Last Two Days and Probably Tomorrow

    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...

    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.

    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.

    A Few Times

    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.

    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...

    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...
