Excuses are especially common when it comes to school work, and we take advantage of them. For me it’s the occasional, I was drowning in homework last night, and I quickly come up with an excuse for why I didn’t do it, or I procrastinate... which is what I’m doing right now, this article is due today, and I’m scrambling. I always just tell myself that I have plenty of time to do it, I’ll get it done eventually, and then it’s 1 a.m. the night before and I’m cramming to get it finished.
I complain about my procrastination too, but it still doesn’t stop me from doing it every single week.
I was busy last night. Practice went late. I had so much other homework to get done, and I figured you would be more lenient. I didn’t feel good. I didn’t understand what to do. My internet was down. These are just some of the few excuses given on a daily basis. The teachers rarely fall for it unless we can do some sweet talking and get them to give in. Sometimes it works, and that’s when you can finally sit back and breathe, and not have to worry about your grade dropping, depending on what the homework was.
As a matter a fact, teachers do feel bad for us kids; they know we are busy and have lives outside of school which is helpful.
Sorry, I have to cut this paper short, my internet just went out, and I think I’m spiking a fever, wait uh I mean my teeth itch, and we got a new dishwasher installed today.
In the meantime keep your homework away from your dog.
