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.

Hi:) I'm new here...

HI! I'm new here, and I'm just warning you - a) I get angry very easily b) People call me emo. Because I'm empathetic and I care to much. Also because I listen to music that most people don't like. (Rock, screamo, alt. Rock ect.ect.) So they put me in the outcast/emo/punk group. Also because I wear my eyeline dark...so...yeah. c) I HATE SCHOOL. And I don't want to drop out...but then I do.... D) I'm pretty young. Smile

WHAT ABOUT YOU ? Smile

Know what? I don't even care if you're emo so long as you don't morph into night.fartist or something.

Let go of all desire for the common good, and the good becomes common as grass.

Hey, welcome! Biggrin

Go to work. Send your kids to school. Follow fashion. Act normal. Walk on the pavement. Watch TV. Save for your old age. Obey the law. Repeat after me: "I am free."

Re: Hi:) I'm new here...

Hello!
How young? 12? 10? I guess because under that, most people wouldn't call you emo.
I wanted to leave school even before that. In fact for as long as I can remember.
Don't feel ashamed of trying to convince the persons who have authority on you (I mean, your parents) just because you suppose they'll use the "you're too young" argument... That's what I did, and it just "ate" me, somehow.
Good luck and welcome Smile

Here in SS, people's butts have a habit of detaching themselves from their bodies, and attacking people by clinging to their faces and refusing to let go.

Also, Carla franklin is a whore who has sand in her ass-crack.

*clears throat* Now, now, let's not introduce her to that right away, let's let her take the site in, then let her discover the lulz herself.

"Ask them no more questions, never hear them lying"

People say the problem with me is I have psychotic tendencies and care not about other human beings I don't like and or know. So?
