    It was only one time I succeeded

    and I did tried again but decided not to. I used to have a late problem when I was in the 7th grade. I was going through a lot of issues and pressure. It just wasn't good. So one time I arrived to school really late.. again. I was just sick of it. It's humiliating! I'm not going...

    The Last Two Days and Probably Tomorrow

    I didn't go in yesterday so I could make my portfolio look hot but ended up going to a last minute interview instead and rushing back to London. I didn't go in today because I was meant to go to the interview to show off my beautiful portfolio but didn't because mum got sick...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    Many times. I couldn't take the bullying.

    It was better than seeing the people who hurt me so badly. Sure, it hurt sitting on a hard toilet seat for multiple hours a week. But it was better than the other option.

    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...

    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.

    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?

    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...
