I have really bad grades. My parents expect a prog. report on friday, and I can't let them find out.
I can easily pull my grades up by the end of the semester to at least a B avg, but right now, it's at a D.
My question: Should I be sick on friday? I already am pretty sick, and I could stay home, delaying the inevitable question, "How did this happen?"
My answer to that, being something along the lines of depressed and suicidal.

Any good ideas?

Just get it over with on Friday.

With your grades it doesn't sound like you can afford to miss a day, anyways.

I have missed 40% of the last school year, am averaging Cs when I am in school, and will probably not be able to return to school for the next and final year.

Yeah, just stay at home. What could possibly go wrong?
#4
might as well just get it over with, and by that i mean show them the D's. get yelled at a bit, but its better to get it out of the way, cause if they find out you were delaying it its just gonna be worse

but my parents are overprotective and retarded.

they will never shut up about it, they'll take everything away from me, including guitar, and computer priv-lages (I won't be able to talk to you anymore ): ), and they can never really find out i was doing it just cause, because i actually am sick (halfway, i could easily convince them)

Well, if you're getting Ds, don't you think your guitar and computer privelages are somehow affecting your grades?

no.

i only play guitar on occasions when a normal person would have finished homework.

i'm depressed and can't focus.

my friends are retarded, none of them have noticed.

I've been through this situation more times than I can remember. If I could offer you one piece of advice it would be to act like a man.

You've done, or not done something, depends on how you look at it and no you have to pay the consequences. Own up to it, be mature and don't make excuses to your parents when they do talk to you about it.

Admit you were wrong and will sincerely try to do better. Your parents will respect you more for owning up to your actions and not trying to weasel your way out of it. Do the right thing.

umm, if they take everything away from you, then they're being good parents and they don't want you to end up as a crack addicted garbage man.
You deserve to have your stuff taken away. You obviously get crappy grades with those things so your parents won't want you to have them.
Not what you wanted to hear, but it's the truth and the sooner you accept it the better.

fine they just tell them you can't concentrate because you're depressed. then tell them that they can take away all your things, but you just want to go see a doctor about it. That will let them know you're serious. if they still take away your stuff, then try harder in school and get better grades and then you'll get your stuff back.

EDIT:

If your parents send you to an asylum as you said, then maybe it would be good for you since you said your SO depressed you can't do well in school and your always thinking about suicide...

No, I'm not joking. I don't think you are depressed, I think you've been a bit miserable and you're looking for something to blame because you haven't been working at school. If you're genuinely suffering from depression, see a doctor.

I was referring that I'd end up in a fucking asylum if I told them.

That's a good point, Rush, if he is that close to suicide having him committed into care would be the best thing to do.

not that hard from the perspective of the 20-year old living in his parent's basement's perspective.

hindsight is 20/20, life looks easier when you're not in the moment.

Maybe, but I thought school was pretty easy at the time too, even if I didn't always bother with it much.

i'm over this, somebody end the thread, i'm going to sleep, this is a temp account, comment me if you feel the need to say something.

I'm a 22 year old working in an Air Force basement... I slept a lot in school. It still wasn't hard to get through it. I ditched class a couple times a week my senior year and still pulled a 4.0.

Man, if he just talked to his parents I bet he'd be okay. He need's own up to not doing the work he was supposed to be doing. If he's serious about getting better grades he needs to put in the extra effort in order to catch up. There's no easy way out once you've dug yourself a hole.

The best thing is to have some integrity and not blame your own failures on everyone else.

Just do your damn school work you'll find out sooner or later that writing on a piece of paper and using your brain for a few minutes each day is a hell of a lot easier than trying to think of stupid ways to "fool" your parents, who have been in the same shoes you have before and know exactly what the hells going on.

Keep it real dude.
