I recently woke up late for class and it wasn’t because I was crying or unable to get to class. I honestly just overslept and I was going to email my professor and tell him that I wasn’t up to coming to class but that would be a lie. I didn’t tell him anything so I just got ready slowly for my day. I don’t think that it would be fair to use my grandfather’s death as an excuse and yet we have those people in the world who would use death as an excuse to get out of everything. I refuse to fall into that pitfall and honor my grandfather by doing my best.
If you are in a greiving state of emotion just take a moment before you do anything rash. Don’t use death as an excuse. You kind of have to treat every day after a death like a normal day. Otherwise you might end up in that state where you are just using death as an excuse for everything and I mean everything.
However, take a moment or a day or something just to compile your emotions. I know that when I found out that I didn’t go to work but I went to class. I just couldn’t handle a lot of contact with a lot of people.
