RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

Awkward/Embarrasing moments

ITT: stories of awkward moments you have had or witnessed in your lifetime:

I went to a college football game with three buddies last season. At around half-time, I went to take a piss. I saw the women's bathroom, and basically just assumed that the men's bathroom would be directly next to the women's one. I just rolled up in there thinking I was hot shit. I looked for a urinal but couldn't find one, but I just thought it was a weird bathroom. I went in a stall and there were little towels to put on the seat above the toilet. I was like "I think I walked into the Gay Men's Bathroom" but continued to pee. After a solid 30 second piss, I walked out the stall not giving a fuck about washing my hands and saw a girl fixing her hair in the mirror. Nothing really clicked at that point and thought to myself "this dumb bitch is in the men's bathroom!" I strolled out the bathroom as a group of attractive college girls were walking in. They gave me a strange look and could hear laughing. Turns out it was just a really big women's bathroom.
