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.

Re: bored


School bores the hell out of me, too. I feel so freakin' unmotivated to do anything except what I want to do. So when those especially boring times roll around, I use some of these handy techniques:

-draw stuff
-if you've got a song stuck in your head and you want to blank out, just focus on it, and ONLY it
-look out the window, count clouds, etc.
-check out the hot girls/handsome guys in your class, fanatasize about them
-MY PERSONAL FAVORITE: if you're given some writing assignment in class you don't want to do and you KNOW the teacher won't collect it/look at it, just wirte random stuff. It's fun! And it keeps you busy so you don't get bored.

Hope this helps. Wink

Re: bored

um. heres wut i do wen im in class.
i am planning a very secret thing and i work on my plan in class.
its like a prank/rebellion.
its sort of like a prank,but also trying to get a message across.
so i write in code when i plan it. if a teacher asks what im doing/i say writing notes on what he/she is saying.
if they notice its coded,i say its fun 2 write that way.
also,try bringing a book to class.
