13 Excuse Emails You Send to Your Professor When You Miss Class

We all skip class and we all need a solid alibi to send our professors.

Saying that you are too tired to get up and go to class is a bad excuse and doesn't really fly so here are some that might. Just make sure that it isn't a test day.

The Classic "I'm Sick"

Giphy

A fever will make you seem like an unfocused student and they don't want that so fake a low grade fever and skip that boring bio lecture.

Doctor/Dentist Appointment

Giphy

Always a winner. You can't help that the only appointment they had open was during class but you NEED to go. Your health is 'very' important.

I have an interview

Giphy

It can be an interview for a job or an internship, you really don't need to elaborate but it is always a winner. It makes the teacher think that you are doing something productive instead of sitting around finishing your binge session on Netflix.

Organizational Commitment

Giphy

I give tours on campus so I have used this excuse a few times and all of my professors are okay with it since it is for the school. Extra points to you if it is for a school sponsored org.

"I have another meeting with another professor"

Giphy

They can't be mad if you have a professor who only comes to campus on Wednesdays and only has office hours during class. If you need to talk you need to talk.

"Sorry prof, I have jury duty"

Giphy

I wouldn't use this if your professor requires paperwork to prove an absence but if they don't and you want to get out of class for a few days, this is a sure winner.

An Accident

Giphy

A fender bender, a big accident, whatever just make sure your lie is small enough that they won't be looking for it on the 10 o'clock news.

Claim a BIG Illness

Giphy

Lice, chicken pox, food poisoning, anything big enough that makes them feel like begging you to stay home.

A Medical Test

Giphy

If you are in the education program, you need to have a TB every so often so use that as an excuse. If you aren't going to be a teacher, find another minor and relevant test that you can use on your teacher.

Traffic Jam

Giphy

With the exception of freshman (and any info that you've shared), your professor has no idea that you live on or off campus. There could have been some bad traffic and it isn't your fault that you got to campus right as class ended.

Family Emergency

Giphy

Sudden illness, death, there are endless possibilities.

Car Break In

Giphy

I know there are a lot of random break ins to cars at my school so using that as an excuse and saying that you have to deal with the police is always a safe bet.

A Mental Health Moment

Giphy

This can be a lie or a valid excuse but sometimes you just need a you day and telling them that you need a mental health break is a good excuse that they can't refute.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
