    Hi. Lately I have been suffering of a lack of motivation (Lazyness!) and have missed 2 weeks of college. Now, when I go back and speak to guidance I was going to say it was because of 'family circumstances' resulting in me moving house so it has been a hectic and rather low time for me.

    Can you see any flaws in this excuse? Does it make room for any questions in return from my teacher?

    p.s yeh I know "dont skip college" so on so forth...

    Surely they could ask for your new home address and number just incase they need to get hold of your parents or anything?

    Just forge a doctors note and say you had tonsillitis or something.

    does that mean a family member died? I was kinda hoping to avoid dead family members and being 'ill'

    Big time...

    Either way - The very fact that you had to ask whether it was a good excuse means that it isn't a good excuse.

    An excuse is only good when you can defend it from all angles.

    Just tell them you're a lazy so-and-so and that you plan to get your ass in gear. It's better than looking like a lazy so-and-so AND a liar, don't you think?
