To be quite honest, I have never skipped a single class. But then I have good reason not to skip. Which is because if we have unexcused absences on a given day, an automated dialer will call home, with a prerecorded message stating that you were missing.

I skip all the time in college! I've skipped days in high school but never individual classes, haha. No point to me.

I have never had the opportunity to skip (not that I would use said opportunity).

Most of my time is spent home ill, so my school-work is largely emailed to me.
A day home-ill makes it rather difficult to "skip", when the work is high-school levels of simplicity, haha.

I couldn't skip class during high school because the staff take attendance seriously. If you are caught skipping, you are immediately sent to the office and face disciplinary action.

In college I did, especially during my first year. I only skipped the boring days and stayed through the important lectures.

I never skipped in High School because my school was super strict with stuff like that. In college, I have. I skip on day where I know nothing important is happening in the class, and I go to the important lectures. We have 3 days we can miss in the semester, and I always end up using all 3.

Psh college is easy street. Does sleeping through a course qualify as skipping?

**Unless there's an attendance policy, I do. So I skip my History lectures mostly.

I'll take the first "y," no telling what the second one stands for. :s Yay!

Speaking of procrastinating, let's think of a conversation topic before I go back to doing real work! Hurry! Stop procrastinating!!

I've skipped classes before, but usually only because I slept in too much of the class and travelling there wouldn't have any point to it.

I have, however, completely blown off an entire course because it was too much for me (I was taking too many hard classes at the time), not to mention I was going through a bad bout of depression.

And if I want to graduate soon, I have to retake it.

Go me...

I don't have anything funny to say. This sucks.

e: hey carcharger promise I'm responding give me a sec
e2: I've done that, and you have more balls than me, I wouldn't have admitted that publicly. (It also helps that you're a man, assuming you still have balls. You never know)

Keep in mind, in college, what your major is also puts some perspective on your grades. Some majors are easier than others.

Oh, you're a straight-A Liberal Arts major? Fantastic, now try some Cellular/Molecular Biology and Computer Programming.

School can be overwhelming, dude. Don't know if you saw my edit, but I just stopped attending a course too at one point because I was so overwhelmed. You've gotten this far, though, maybe knowing that will help push you through it?

Just keep trying because that's how I get through a level - keep failing until I succeed. Except here, it's more like retake it once or twice rather than 50 times.
Spoiler:
hey hey you you, what's that sound (sound)
everybody look, what's going down
ah yes, ain't that fresh
now everybody wants to get down like that

Yeah, I know that much.

Having a bad semester can be damaging to your GPA, though. I had an overall GPA of 3.2 before the depression semester. Afterwards? 2.911.

And this semester only bumped it up to 2.931. Although, at my college, my overall GPA is still above average for Biology majors.

I don't know whether to laugh or be creeped out. X)

Edit:
I've never "skipped" classes (partially because I'm homeschooled so it's not really possible). I was late for a history class (which isn't at home), but it was because I had to wait for my mom to get ready (she teaches in the same building). She had lost part of her thumb in a cooking incident a few days before, which made it difficult for her to get ready.

I can't think of very many people with a perfect history in college, though. So don't be too hard on yourself! And don't let depression rough you up. I did the same thing for the same reasons and I ended up in a psychiatric ward and lost my job over it. Ugh. Are you seeing anyone?

I sound so...crazy. Feel free to not answer, that's a pretty personal question.

whoa, i meant a psychiatrist or therapist. yipes. hope you see this edit :-D I'm here all night

@outfox:

You're talking to me, right?

Yeah, I am seeing a psychiatrist and I'm feeling loads and loads better. Never ended up in a ward though. For some reason, despite all the suicidal thoughts and depression I've ever had, I've remained sane enough to always realize there was a way out of the tunnel. And if I didn't feel like there was, I'd talk to someone about it.

Oh, yes, Carcharger, sorry I didn't specify. It's so good you're able to rationalize with yourself. I'm manic-depressive, so when I get depressed I get totally out of control, all the reasoning in the world can't change my thoughts.

I'm glad the psychiatrist has helped. Do you feel you'll be able to make it through that course?
