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.


The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. My contact details are here.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

The Quarterly Lobe

College started. Things going well. Need to integrate socially, since no benefit in being an anonymous ghost.

Interested in a blonde girl in my math class.(preference of blondes caused by an odd dream involving me, a blonde trying to kill me and...everything in between)

Strangely enough, I believe things are going according to plan. Ya see, I've had some dreams a while ago, and recall small parts of it. I don't know if real or not or whatever, but definitely passing through those "points". The place I work was one, Today was another.

Hope to study abroad in the UK. Got till October first to get everything done. Need to speak with some study abroad advisor because they have to fill out an official form.

Life is gud.
(minus the whole money issue. My parents are like money leeches. If they hadn't bloody separated, I'd have been able to get away and be able to form a far more solid foundation rather than my current crap situation of taking care of household stuff while trying to get my college done as well)
