I missed that same class twice last week, only managing to drunkenly rise for it on Wednesday. I have managed to only (grudgingly) get one score below 95% on an in-class essay, despite showing up virtually hammered (at 9AM). I really do make an effort to get there, though: I’ve only missed it four times, once because of a Regent’s test that was scheduled for me.
