I'm sure many of us have had times like those. Something to remember is that skipping classes and watching lectures later might not work for everyone. The great part about going to lecture is that it makes you feel committed and involved in the material. You're interacting with it several times a week. If you go to lecture, you're going to be more conscious about keeping up with the material, because not knowing what on earth the professor is talking about will be a wake up call for anyone.
Most of all, remember: learning, classes, studying, it’s all a part of your college experience. This might very well be the last time you will get the chance to learn something in a class setting. Once people start working later on in life, many of them wish they still had time to learn new things like they did when they were younger. Remember to cherish every part of your time here at Berkeley, including going to lecture.
