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.

Wanted: Picture of Stereotypical Gangster. REWARD

I've gotta do a collage on American culture. Since a good portion of our culture, like our sense of style and music is based on the hip hop theme, I needed a way to portray that. I figure that, for my purposes, a picture of a stereotypical inner city gangster would get the point across.

So, in sync with my sterotypical image, the picture must have these features:

- The guy should be wearing a baseball cap. (Extra points if cocked to the side)
- Blingage! (Lot's of silver/gold heavy necklaces around his neck.)
- The guy should be black (I hate to say it, but, uh... a wangster won't work).

It also has to be school appropriete (No naked women in the background).
And, he can't be wielding a gun (unless it would be easy to cover up with another picture).

There is a reward. It's a surprise. Smile Happy hunting!

Thanks guys!

Re: Wanted: Picture of Stereotypical Gangster. REWARD

this whole topic made me laugh

life is just blah blah blah. we hope for blah, and sometimes we find it. but mostly its blah. and waiting for blah. and hoping you were right about the blahs you made. and when you think you just got the whole blah damn thing figured out, and your surrounded by the ones you blah. death shows up and blah blah blah.
