So I've been having problems with a roommate that was regularly waking me up at night to noise. I'll be sorting that out, but because of a lack of sleep, I rely a ton on my phone to wake me up. Once I slept through my phone alarm. Lately, my phone's been having power problems and shutting off at night. I missed a couple of classes because of that. Then I started relying on my PC, until my freaking campus security software cut me off to make me randomly log back in.
I know it's all BS excuses that are my fault, but I've missed five classes so far. It's a small Latin class. Is there any way to approach the professor and regain a little respect without insulting him with my retarded problems? I don't plan on lying to him, but I want him to know I'm serious about his class, and I love doing Latin. How do I make that clear when I keep skipping?
For the record, in all my other classes, I have a high GPA, especially in my major, which this class falls under. I'm pretty serious about school and passionate about my major.
