    Heck, I even remember having one teacher that locked her door at 10 or 15 minutes past class start; if you weren't there by that time, or even if you did show and just missed the door you were automatically counted as absent for that day.
    I had that teacher. I also had the entirely opposite teach who didn't care about attendance. He just wanted a group of students he sees regularly and hated large classes. His classes had the lowest attendance and he did not care at all. I sent him an email once telling him my mother was in the hospital so I couldn't come. He told me, "I honeslty don't care whether you come or not.". Just like that. I kind of liked that kind of teacher though, lol, but sometimes a little consideration would have been neat.

    Also, Sylphiel. I love your red name. js.

    I always hated the really stringent attendance policies in college. This isn't grade school.

    I only think attendance should be mandatory in courses where you're working towards a very specific, applied job. Stuff like medicine or nursing where you need a certain set of skills to survive which you won't pick up without attending lectures and placements and whatnot. Otherwise - don't see why the uni cares. It's the student's money that's being wasted in the end. *shrug*

    No, she was a moderator, I think. Her badge is gone?
    Edit: Just browsed her profile. I can't completely remember if she ever was one, honestly.

    Irrelevant, but I finally managed to draw something that I can put those lyrics (the ones I posted a few days ago) in. c:

    She's a supporter only. I think she was a mod at some point but before I joined so!

            Gizmo! The gremlins, the goonies and Little Monsters were 3 of the most watched children's movies of the 80s reruns for me. Little Monsters sucks of course, but it still has a place in my heart.
