Lie: “I can’t see.”
Truth: “My right eye is a little blurry.”
I told this lie because I didn’t want to go to class. I hate 8 am classes. I’m not sure I want to be in this class, which is kind of bad considering it’s the evaluation class for my major. But I’d been up until 5:30 AM working on art projects, that, admittedly, I procrastinated on, and my eyes hurt like fuck, despite the copious amount of eyedrops I put into them.
And did have a legitimate problem. Something where your eye gets infected because of a respiratory tract infection. (I had bronchitis a few weeks earlier.) So I even had a doctor’s note. But I could see, all three days. It was painful, and I had a migraine, and I was light sensitive, but I could see.
But, I ended up getting an extension on everything, I got out of class twice, and all my work is now complete.
So it’s all good.
