So, my US History professor is - for some weird reason - still holding class this afternoon. It's a huge 70-person lecture, and she doesn't bother with attendance. It's also a class that I can fairly easily get notes from no fewer than 3 people should I need to, and according to the syllabus today is just lecture on "The Progressive Era". I would say that I will not be the only person in my class skipping, but knowing the majority of my classmates ... I probably will be, because half of them probably didn't know there was an election in the first place.
This said, I do not want to go to this class today. I want to watch the inauguration. Plus I woke up exhausted and I have this class right after Statistics, so I am not sure if my brain will be in the right place or not this afternoon.
Do you think skipping would be okay if I go into it knowing it's a just-once thing? Is there such a thing as actual just-once skipping? Is it fair for me to skip US History just once in order to see an equally important historic event?
