I don't want to go to class tonight

Really, I don’t. I’ve got 25 minutes, it’s a 2 hour 40 minute class, and I’ve been on campus since 7 this morning and already been in class for four hours today. I want to go home.

Why yes, I would like some cheese with my whine, thank you very much.

Get off your butt and get to class you lazy bum!


What’s the only thing people are willing to pay for but don’t wish to receive…
An education. :wink:

Btw, I’m a warm, fuzzy person…can you not tell?

I’m here, I’m here. Waiting for class to start see.

Still don’t wanna be here, despite your warm and fuzzy comments.

But I’ll make an effort to learn something tonight, I promise. Just for you.

Ah, go. You’ll feel better about yourself. Besides, how often do those three hour classes really last the whole three hours?

I never keep my students for the whole three hours. If they don’t want a break, we just use the extra time to get out early. It’s a 7 to 9:50 pm class.
I especially don’t keep them long this semester because it meets on Wednesdays, when I already have an 8am class and then three classes between 11 and 4 at another campus.

Well, in the one three hour class that I’ve taken, the professor not only used the entire three hours every single time, he often went over. Personally, I thought that it was just rude–I mean, we’re not talking five minutes over–in one case, there was an extra 45 minutes! Some people had to leave early in order to get to work on time and stuff. And he gave us no prior warning. Those who missed were SOL.

I know how you feel, though. I have Short Story Writing in a half-hour. If it weren’t for the fact that we’re doing Raymond Carver today, I wouldn’t go.

Actually, when I was back in school, I usually felt better about myself when I didn’t go to class. I told myself not to give in to peer pressure.

Ok, I went. I learned and I finally made it home (the Lady Vols basketball game got out about the same time that class did, so leaving the parking garage was an adventure.)
This class always uses the full time allotted. That’s not normally a bad thing, since I at least feel like I’m getting my money’s worth.

What did you learn, Lsura? :smiley:

I had a 2 hour and 45 minute class this evening, and can kind of relate, Lsura. In fact, for several years I often get stuck with a once-a-week night class which I loathe.

Firstly, I don’t like classes that only meet once a week because I often get sidetracked by my other classes which seem more urgent since they have things due next monday/tomorrow/an hour from now/yesterday :wink: while the other class has something due ‘a week from now’. Added to the fact that if I miss ONE day of a class that only meets once a week, its (literally) making me 1 week behind :mad:

I also don’t like night classes. My work schedule is flexible enough to have class in the morning, in fact I LIKE that arrangement because I like having everything over with as soon as possible so I have as much evening to myself. So you could say that I am often getting cursed with the worst of both worlds here. Fortunately most of the classes under this arrangement have been fun, interesting classes that I did well in. The class I had tonight, while I was willing to go, during our little break I was tempted to take off because I was soooo hungry and every food-related service in a 1 mile radius decided to up and close at 7 PM for some reason this evening. But since I participate a lot in class the teacher would have noticed I bolted and marked me absent. So I stuck it out for the rest of the class and got McDonalds on the way home

I learned about Lotka’s law and Bradford’s Law and some other person’s law (I can’t remember their name at 6:30 in the morning). And I took lots of notes, so I know I learned even more.

And today I get to do it all over again. Well, except for the classes part (it’s time to write a paper! :stuck_out_tongue: )

Yeah I have a 2 and a half hour class in… 35 minutes. So I have to leave the house PDQ. But I don’t want to go. I just got off night shift, it’s almost 8 am and I just wanna crawl into bed and sleep. But go I must.

Catchya after Chemistry

Aaah brings back memories of the 5 hour Physics labs I used to have in college… except he would lecture for 3+ hours then make us mush the lab work into the last hour and a half or so… 3 hours or more on error and deviation every week and I don’t remember much more than the bell curve today :slight_smile:

I didn’t want to go to class last night! What a coincidence!

I have to study tonight. Studying sucks. Enzymology sucks. Biochemistry sucks. I am in the wrong major. That sucks. My throat hurts. That sucks. I’m hungry. That sucks. It sucks that its only Wednesday. It sucks that I have an Enzyme lab tomorrow afternoon (which ALWAYS goes overtime), and then I’m going to have to stick around campus just to go to a stupid meeting because I was stupid and agreed to go. I just sneezed, and that sucks, because my throat hurts, and sneezing makes it worse. I haven’t slept well in…well, 6 years or so, but these past couple of weeks have been particularly tough.

Gaaah. I am so glad my school’s “Reading Week” is this coming week, so I can go home and relax and not have to worry about the stupid commute, and the fact that my research project has to be redone (“it’s chemistry - it doesn’t always work” arrgghhh!!) and the stress of tests (though I have a midterm the Thursday coming back.

One more semester after this, and then I graduate. This time next year will be my convocation, and then its OVER! I can start my Masters and study something I’m actually interested in, rather than suffer through stupid classes for a stupid major I never should have picked. Hindsight is 20/20, right?


I don’t want to go to class either, too. And I’m there now.

It’s pouring buckets here and I reaaaaalllyyy don’t want to go, but I will. Fortunately it’s already a small class and some of the students won’t make it tonight, so we won’t have to stay too long.

I didn’t want to go to class Monday, so I didn’t.

I found out today that everyone who showed up Monday was greeted by a “Class is cancelled” note.

Wooo Hooo!

Believe it or not, that is the second time that has happened in this class. Both days I decided to skip, class ended up being cancelled anyways.
