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.

No matter what you do - what college majors you take - what lifestyle terms you choose - the future is always equally uncertain. That's not an excuse not to try for the best for yourself - but keep in mind - You can drop out and later become one of the richest people in the world [monetarily or otherwise] or you can go to law school and end up homeless - or vice versa. There's really no way to tell. Making decisions based on where you want to be 10 years from now is the wrong angle of approach to take.

Try to understand who you are, what you want, and how you want to get there - use that as your base criteria to develop ideas from. Take it from me - good ideas are often more important than just good choices. Ideas can open opportunities and solve multiple issues at the same time. They tend to open options that allow you to make choices where the choice previously didn't exist. If you only made good choices with the choices you are given, you won't go as far. However, good ideas must be inspired from proper understanding. Dropping out of compulsory school is one of many great ideas if orchestrated well and understood correctly.-David B who is a SS member.

This is a bit long, isn't it? To go on the sidebar.

Solution would be split them up . Wink
