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.

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. Send me a message if you'd like to keep in touch with me & Steve.

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.

Grad school if I can figure out a way to afford it. I realized I'm not actually good at anything except school so yeah. After that, who knows.

I'm gonna be an illustrator, musician, and possibly a producer/director. It might not even happen, but I'm gonna work for it.

RE: What Are You Going To Do When You Finish School?

I'm in college right now, not sure if I'll "finish school" by the time I finish school. I'm looking to eventually start my own business, doing web development and computer games.

Also I've got a dozen domain names sitting around waiting for me to put websites up for them one of these days.

RE: What Are You Going To Do When You Finish School?

Haven't done much of value yet...I'm hoping to finish this engineering degree so I can get a well paying engineer job, I know how cliche that sounds but having a decent income will do me wonders...living off $300-400 a week has killed my soul. I also hope to continue doing business stuff which I've been doing, the business probably wont take off but I've learned a lot about business law and stuff like that which will be useful later.

Whatever. Still ain't gonna change my opinion. I already learned not to expect shit and it's already a good solution to certain life problems.

RE: What Are You Going To Do When You Finish School?

Well, since you asked...
I want to get my dual degree in Japanese and Ornamental Horticulture in college, then get a job as a translator, either as a tour guide or, if I'm really lucky, at an anime dubbing company like FUNimation. I'll do bonsai on the side, and then full time once I'm like 80 and can retire from my translating gig.

"I have been allotted months of futility,
and nights of misery have been assigned to me.
When I lie down I think, ‘How long before I get up?’
The night drags on, and I toss and turn until dawn." Job 7:3-4

Both of my parents are teachers. My body is bound, but my mind is free.

RE: What Are You Going To Do When You Finish School?

Ah the very last day of school... everyone at my school stayed behind to say goodbye at the main area, lot's of tears and goodbyes and photos.

But that was them. Me and my group of friends met up at the main gate as soon as the last bell rang and got the first bus out of there and had a celebratory smoke fest.

But yeah, after school finished I went to college, physics maths computer science and philosophy ahoy.

Have you ever been to Kongregate? They let you put up games and you get ad revenue. They fork over more of the money if you do things like put their API into your coding, have the game be sponsored, or exclusive to kong.

Yep, have played a few games there occasionally. I might try a making flash game of two, but mainly I want to make a few PBBGs Smile
