  Miss Samms lied to Mrs Neal about my homework
Posted by: Marlena403 - 04-22-2017 03:14 AM - Replies (6)

If you don't know who they are, Miss Samms is my current English teacher and Mrs Neal is an English teacher who I like, but doesn't teach me. She is also the Head of Department.

Anyway, today in English, Miss Samms gave everyone a homework. The homework was to read and ANNOTATE Page 28 of Of Mice and Men. I don't even know what annotate means and how to annotate and neither Miss Samms nor Ms Vakesan (Teaching Assistant) would tell me what annotate means, so I went to find Miss Samms after school. I couldn't find her, so I went to Mrs Neal instead. She had to deal with another student and told me to go to Miss Samms' room. She wasn't there, so I waited until Mrs Neal finishes dealing with a student. After she did, she had to go to Ms Plant (Another English teacher) and told me that Miss Samms told her that I DON'T HAVE ANY HOMEWORK! Since when? I stayed at school even longer and had to run away if Miss Samms was nearby. When Mrs Neal came out of Ms Plant's room, I showed her my Link Book to prove her that I have homework. She looked, but told me that she still doesn't believe me. It happened either because:

1. Miss Samms just wanted me to do that by myself.

2. Miss Samms wanted me to come to her for homework help instead of Mrs Neal.

3. I don't know what annotate means, so she possibly couldn't have helped me with that.

4. Miss Samms wanted to fail me.

5. Mrs Neal just didn't want to help me. (I doubt it would ever happen. Mrs Neal did help me with two of my other homeworks after all. Plus I've known her for three years already and I trust her)

I didn't want to argue with Mrs Neal, so I went home.

I talked to my mum on the phone just now and she said Miss Samms did the right thing to lie to Mrs Neal and Mrs Neal did the right thing not to help me with the homework because she can't help me with exams. What?! Homework and exams are not the same thing! But if it's because she can't help me with annotating for whatever reason (I don't know what annotate means, if I knew what it means and if it wasn't too hard, I wouldn't have to go to Mrs Neal), I'll write an apology letter for her and give it to her on Tuesday (Mrs Neal has Mondays off).

What have I done wrong?

Sad Steven destroyed one of my modeling clay figures on purpose
Posted by: Marlena403 - 04-20-2017 07:26 AM - Replies (6)

Today at lunchtime, a boy named Steven from 8Orange (Year 8) destroyed one of my modeling clay figures. First, he took my modeling clay figure of Miss Acharya (My Science teacher) and asked me if that's Miss Kasmani. When I said no, he took my modeling clay figure of Miss Kasmani and asked me who that is. When I told him it's Miss Kasmani, he took my modeling clay figure of her, put it in between his legs and gave it back to me. Then, he tried to take my modeling clay figure of Ms McCutcheon and gave it back after I told him to. When the bell rang, he took my modeling clay figure of Miss Kasmani and when I told him to give it back, he ran away. When I ran after him, he threw it on the ground and broke it in half. I had to go to Miss Kasmani after school today and tell her what Steven did. She said that I will have to talk to her and Steven tomorrow.

At the beginning of of Year 9, me and Steven used to be friends. And today was not the first time he did something bad to me. I remember the day when he stole my cake and said that his friend Sammy wanted it. And I'm not the only person he was rude to. I've heard that he has been following Muhammed and Sammy around the school even after Miss Kasmani was told, said rude stuff to a boy and ran away to get that boy in trouble, called all the girls in his PSHE class lesbians, and said some naughty things to Lexi. I'm afraid that Steven will still be rude to me. He was being rude to Muhammed and Sammy after Miss Kasmani was told, so I think the same thing will happen to me.

How do I deal with that naughty boy? What if telling Miss Kasmani won't help and will only make it worse?

  Schools should start later to prevent accidents, depression, scientists say
Posted by: Hansgrohe - 04-19-2017 04:43 AM - Replies (9)

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nati...100573390/

Quote:Teenagers' school days shouldn't begin before 8:30 a.m., says American Academy of Sleep Medicine, linking early start times to car accidents, depression and poor academic performance.
In a position statement published Saturday in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine, the sleep research group asserted that later start times aid peak alertness and performance while supporting better mental health and student safety.

As teenagers enter puberty, their biological programming for sleep shifts later, the statement notes, causing a clash with early start times that results in sleep deprivation.

“Early school start times make it difficult for adolescents to get sufficient sleep on school nights, and chronic sleep loss among teens is associated with a host of problems, including poor school performance, increased depressive symptoms, and motor vehicle accidents,” said Nathaniel Watson, M.D., the statement's lead author.
“Starting school at 8:30 a.m. or later gives teens a better opportunity to get the sufficient sleep they need to learn and function at their highest level.”
► Related: What happens if you don't sleep for 24 hours? You're basically drunk
A 2015 analysis from the Centers for Disease Control found that 83% of schools started earlier than 8:30, with 8:03 being the average start time for public middle and high schools. The longstanding debate over school start times typically pits the parents of tired students against school officials who argue later times complicate after-school sporting events.

The academy recommends teens between 13 and 18 years of age sleep eight to ten hours each night, but CDC data show two-thirds of students report sleeping seven hours or less on school nights.

The dangers associated with a lack of sleep include obesity, athletic injuries, depression symptoms and risky behaviors, the academy said.

It even cited a published study that linked a one-hour delay in start times with a 16.5% drop in the rate of car crashes among student drivers.

The circadian shifts experienced by teens can continue into young adulthood: A recent study analyzing college students found their ideal start times to be after 11 a.m. or noon.

  How to Effectively Change the School System
Posted by: Math_n_Logic - 04-19-2017 02:51 AM - Replies (16)

So it seems apparent that many people here have anti-school sentiments. However, I find that most of us are just ranting and venting out our views rather than taking a call to action. I feel that people must understand that for something to change, there must be action taking place and that taking action comes with its consequences and sufferings. Thus it seems necessary that a thread like this comes into play.

Also, I am aware that there is another forum post that is also about, "How We Change the School System". However, it is important to note that the post is more of a brainstorming session rather than a plan. So I shall list key constraints on what I think would take to change the educational system.

- A source of income that makes it possible to defy the educaitonal system
- Provide cohesive arguments with facts and statistics that refute the usual schoolboy arguments(i.e appeal to tradition arguments)
- Understand that laws still apply to you and that one needs to make intelligent decisions
- People are resistant to change in this aspect, so it is important to act in a civil manner to further convince and spread awareness
- The biggest really is to raise awareness

There are certainly more, but this is what I shall list for the mean time. If you feel like this is your call then you can gladly discuss about it here and feel free to message me if you are willing to take action.

[/Center][/YouTube]So, at school today ( which was our first day back from break I might add) my crazy English teacher kept us in from recess ( I know it might sound childish but you'll see my point in this later) because one person out of our 20-somthing kid class " talked" even though she had no evidence. she said she would keep us in tomorrow if no one confessed ( which no one did) so that's that. she also threatened to take away our enrichment, which is the only thing we have to look forward to in her class. so I'm considering taking some serious action.

Lightbulb What's the best way to train work discipline out of school?

It's in law that school must train its students for the adulthood and for formal jobs. That's why they do most part of what they do, and it annoys us.
Can you tell me how does it work in HS and SDE, because I need this for a counter argumentMwahaha.

  Recommendations to get motivated?
Posted by: Mochique - 04-15-2017 01:14 AM - Replies (4)

Hey everyone.

For those of you who've read my posts previously, you probably know that I'm at a high school that offers IT courses (and I've been struggling a little bit.) Anyways, I decided to follow into Tier 2 of the IT course at my high school - but I'm starting to have issues again, and would like some of your guys' recommendations or input, if no one minds.

It's ironic though, how I used to be interested in wanting a career as an IT person. But ever since I've taken the courses at school it seems like almost as if I've lost an interest for technology related things.

I think the main reason is because it's all about teaching yourself, and learning on your own. I like that approach, but there's just so much reading. If we had more time, I think I'd actually do it, and if there were less distractions in the class. And I'm more of the student that learns from doing.

I thought that when I'd be taking these courses that it'd be all hands on, and that your teacher would be explaining to you, this is how you remove a virus, or this is that, and that is that (and so on.)

I get the reading aspect, and the self-learning aspect, since it's really like the only way to learn IT. Since it's just about memorization (literally) and it's more easier for you, since you can technically go at your own pace. But most of the time we only have like a week to get through a chapter.

Anyone have any recommendations for me to get motivated back into IT, and to not be so lazy? I know colleges love to see students who have those certifications, and it shows that you've attempted college level courses (and the IT courses are rigorous as well) and of course, they'll look great on resumes, and applications.

Thank you in advance.

  Autistic Rights - Special Ed School Vouchers May Come With Hidden Costs

Wow this is horrible. It goes to show you that the situation for autistic education is really, really bad in this country alone.

Knowing the horrors of SpEd in public education I think many would see private schools as a good alternative but holy fuck there's some shady shit going on.

  Rant with questions n shit
Posted by: IDKWTFID - 04-10-2017 04:05 PM - Replies (8)

This is my first post here, so, uh.. hi.

It's 1:46 a.m. right now. From 11:00 pm to 1:30 I was working on an essay on a topic I neither give a give a shit about nor see myself using in the future. (History, btw, because I need to know who invented buddhism or some shit) Anyways, I just realized I did the whole fucking thing wrong and I have to restart it, which mum's gonna be pissed off about, but whatever.

But anyways, for those of you who did not go to college, how's life? How is it? Because I need to know whether or not I should suck it up for another 8 years and be financially secure, or just say fuck it and become a musician like I've always wanted to.

Another question, how the fuck do you maintain any type of confidence while you're in school? My mother, she's a fucking saint by the way, every two years she'll let me take a semester online, which I'm doing right now (still shit, but a little better) and whenever I do this I find I have high self-esteem, I'm confident, I have better social skills, and I have healthier/more relationships when I'm not in (public) school.

So do you guys know how the fuck you do that? I don't even know how I lose my self-esteem so quickly, but whenever I go back there, it houdini's the fuck outta me.

Maybe it's because I got picked on a shit ton when I was younger (actually I still do, but I'm not a fucking doormat anymore) I dunno. Whatever, I've ranted for way too long. Goodnight.

  Hansgrohe Shits on Special Education AGAIN
Posted by: Hansgrohe - 04-07-2017 04:16 AM - Replies (4)

God I remember doing this shit all the time when I was in special ed. Looking back it's an even bigger crock of shit than I realized.

First off, part of the shit they tried to put me through was that I would be like the "normal kids" (aka extroverts) even though relatively speaking, I was actually pretty normal. But no, being given the right to be normal was not enough. They had to fucking boss and patronize me like I was a fucking goat.

The biggest waste of fucking time was speech class. Oh god, speech class. Let me describe the hell that it is.

First off, I remember the room for speech was so fucking tiny. This is an issue because I'm slightly claustrophobic (accommodating my fucking HAIRY ASS), so it was always uncomfortable. Honestly, I don't even fucking remember what we learned, because it was fucking boring. In theory it was to help my speech, which was admittedly not great, but for god's sake they treated me like I had the fucking hold of the English language like I was only 4 fucking years old, or I was from a foreign country.

Worst, I think it actually made things worse. See, being patronized and looked upon as inferior for no good reason was damaging to my already pissed on self esteem (which I described in some of my other posts). So, basically, it fucking held me back. It's even more fucking laughable because I've learned all the fucking shit they were trying to teach me through the fucking power of the Internet. You know why?

Because on the Internet, there's shit that doesn't patronize me. I was actually encouraged to think that I can fucking do things by myself, and I am fucking awesome, because I exist and I can do amazing things if I put the FUCKING EFFORT. I feel my life has had much more success recently.

Tutorial classes weren't bad though. The teacher there was actually very respectable and treated everyone like a fucking human being and wouldn't dumb things down for us. Much respect for a sane legit teacher in an awful system.

  The Nice Guy™ Syndrome
Posted by: Hansgrohe - 04-04-2017 05:32 AM - Replies (7)

I'm surprised there hasn't been a thread for this already, but then again I imagine a majority of School Survivors are trapped in singledom anyway, so it's time to have a talk about this.

(I'm going to tell this from a male perspective too, so there's a discretion)

1. What is the "Nice Guy™ Syndrome?

A "nice guy" is a guy that believes that if they perform good deeds for a girl, they will be rewarded with a relationship or even sex. Actions of your typical "nice guy" may include opening doors, telling lame jokes, giving gifts or offering help with things like homework, etc. Nice guys typically portray themselves as gentle, compassionate, sensitive, or vulnerable.

The term "nice guy" can actually be used as positive; it may be used to describe a man who is genuine, is a good lover, and romantic. However, recently, the term is very negative as well, and describes a man who has no value, is submissive, has no goals or ambition, is boring, and may be actually manipulative or be misanthropic.

2. Should I be paranoid then?

No. Because the good news is that it's quite easy to weed out a Nice Guy™ from an actual nice guy. In this thread, I'm going to show you a number of ways to know who might be a Nice Guy™, or in the case for men, a Nice Girl™. For others, this may be a useful guide to cure themselves from the infamous Nice Guy™ Syndrome.

The worst you can expect from a Nice Guy™ is probably a mean text ranting about how "nice" they were to you and for them to go on some convoluted rant about how "women don't appreciate nice guys", so thankfully that's their max potency (unless you're dealing with someone like Elliot Rodger, which if you are, that's another story for another day; speaking of which, School Survival seriously needs an anti-bullying guide/stance).

3. How do I spot a Nice Guy™?

1. He's a bit too suspiciously... nice
One typical trait of a Nice Guy™ is that they tend to be quite... nice, doing a lot of favors for you. Generally speaking, there are a lot of people who tend to be genuinely nice and do these good things out of kindness. However, more often than not, a nice guy may go to the extreme, and this can be seen as rather manipulative.

2. His/her personality just sucks
Another overwhelming trait of the Nice Guy™ is that they constantly tout their niceness as their defining feature. This is not a good thing. This indicates that otherwise, they're a generally boring person who probably doesn't do much with their time, nor do they have a lot of interests.

I know this because when I was a Nice Guy™, my personality mostly sucked. I didn't provide much value, nor did I do many interesting things with my life, either. I did have some intuition and intelligence, but that was really it. Otherwise I was a doormat.

The good news is that there is definitely a way around this. This Elliott Hulse video is a good blueprint on how NOT to be a Nice Guy™. Generally those that are successful with dating and social circles tend to have a strong hobby/passion and their personality reflects this.

Also, most importantly, take care of yourself. Keep in good shape, wash your face, dress well, etc. One common trait of the Nice Guy™ is that they believe that women are shallow and only see men for their appearance. Again, this is a fallacy. The cold hard truth is that looks matter. Actually, women look more towards personality than appearance, which is why there are men who are successful in dating who aren't very attractive because their personality is awesome. However, appearance says a lot about personality, and in general people make a judgment on your appearance (it sends a message about yourself).

So, in the end, look attractive as you can and have an awesome personality.

3. They see other men as "assholes/douchebags" etc (or for girls, they see other women as sluts, etc)
This is psychological projection at its finest. The mantra and backbone of the Nice Guy™ is that they are absolutely convinced that other men are manipulative sociopaths who are just using women for sex. For the Nice Girl™, they may see other women as sluts or whores who only see men for sex.

Regardless, there's a strong idea of blatant hypocrisy. The reality is that the Nice Guy™ is most likely only nice in order to get a date or score. Their pretentious and judgmental attitude re-enforces a mindset that they are the only good people, and everyone else is bad. The reality is that those "assholes/douchebags/sluts" are people who actually have tried in their lives to be good people with value.

Think of it this way; is it really "nice" of a person to make a blatant and unbacked judgment of someone for simply being more successful than them? No. They're just bitter that their life sucks, and can't accept responsibility for it, therefore they blame something else for their life sucking.

4. Nice Guys™ see dating as a moral issue and are entitled
Do you know someone who constantly complains that they can't get a date and they start going off on how everything is against them, and they're so entitled to a date. Yeah, that's what a Nice Guy™ thinks.

Nice Guys™ think they're entitled to sex and a relationship. The reality is that inherently, society owes them nothing. If you want something, in general you have to do something to earn it. Nice Guys™ think that a girls should owe them sex for their "chivalry".

I think the reasoning for this is that people look to Hollywood for the "model relationship" and a lot of movies like to depict the man as being unfairly marginalized by a girl, or that the "nice guy" gets the girl in the end. There are some serious entitlement issues going here.

In the end, you're not entitled to anything. Accept this, and be at peace.

5. They have a defeatist attitude
Another common trait of the Nice Guy™ is that they feel they always lose at the end. They know that the "bad boy" or "douche jock" will always get the girl at the end.

First off, no one likes a defeatist. If you have a defeatist attitude, you're likely going to fulfill that prophecy in your head. It's an unhealthy attitude and people pick up on it. It also keeps you from making serious change that you need in your life.

Second, why do those kind of guys get the girl in the end? They actually do things that make themselves awesome. Think about it, if you're complaining that the "bad boy" wins in the end, you're really undermining yourself. The reality is that you're very capable of change, and you can be very awesome.

6. They really emphasize their niceness
This is a big one. Nice Guys™ think that their niceness makes them somehow distinct, somehow special in an amoral society. Somehow, they're special snowflakes.

The cold hard reality is that almost everyone is nice in some way or another. It's something that not only are we taught but it's a basic part of human empathy. Niceness is basically the lowest common denominator and an excuse not to improve yourself.

You really think the people with a lot of social success are somehow not nice? Do you really think that society is lacking in niceness? Again, I attribute this to the Hollywood trend of depicting a lot of men in RomCom movies as douchebags and that dating lacks genuine niceness.

7. They look towards "chivalry"/bash feminism, etc.
This isn't a universal trait of Nice Guys™, but it tends to be more common than not. A lot of Nice Guys™ look at themselves as "chivalrous" compared to other men. This is commonly called white knight syndrome, where these men see themselves as a "savior" to a woman from a shallow man, but in reality, the only reason a white knight is knighting in the first place is because they want to get laid.

It can get worse; some of these dudes think that feminism is responsibly for their failure in dating (even though plenty of men are still getting laid, women love sex, and a lot of pick-up techniques were actually pioneered by women...), so they go on and rant about feminism and are nostalgic for a return to past society.

This is the best example I can give:
[Image: 2a2276a4483c4368b9e93e0da3e6dea1?fit=max...a2400db0e2]

4. I think I might be a or know a Nice Guy™! What do I do?
All right. Now that I've given you the best advice and signs of a Nice Guy™, I can give you some better advice on dealing with this.

If you know a Nice Guy™, unfortunately I have to say it's probably best to keep a good distance from them. Try to reject their advances and they'll probably get the message that they've been once again, rejected. The good news is that Nice Guy™ are mostly harmless (unless again, you're dealing with Elliot Rodger, which is another story for another day), so distancing yourself from them should be easy.

If you are a Nice Guy™, there are a number of tips I can give you, but in general I would emphasize to stop being so nice, and work on your personality, appearance, and transform yourself into a better person. Find a genuine interest or hobby, and work on social skills.

This thread was mostly dedicated to talking about Nice Guys™ in general. I've got other threads, such as my male fashion thread, which can help you improve on yourselves, but those are threads for other days Smile

This, coming from a former Nice Guy™.
