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.

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.

Better than sitting around and doing nothing.

I'd contest that... It won't work.

When they put a bunch of construction workers to work "oiling the roads" or working on our infrastructure, all it does is give a bunch of construction-workers a temporary job. It will only help them temporarily, and it will fuck everyone else over in the mean time. We don't have the money for this shit. People who get fired are almost guaranteed to be out of work for the next six months, since companies get money for hiring someone who hasn't had a job for six or more months... It's going to give the big bankers all kinds of money, they're spending billions of dollars in order to CUT taxes, and we're already fucked as it is.

Didn't we learn our lesson last time? Stimulus packages don't fucking work, and that's exactly what this bill is.

I just can't see this working. At all. It's going to be a catastrophic failure, and put us 400+ billion in debt on top of the trillions of dollars in debt we already have. It's fucking stupid.

Re: Obeezy's new bill.

Well he's a figure head for corporate interests absent.
Don't tell me your forgetting how our governments work too? :( )
Hell we and a few other forums I frequent come up with solutions to curb the debt all the time and the fact that he resorts to this just shows to anybody with half a brain that he's nothing but a shill.
Folks if you can't get out of america then at least get supplies and prepare because shits gonna get even uglier as time goes on.

Apparantly they were supposed to send it to conggress today, but I don't think that happened lol.

Also, HoS, I guess you're right lol. Once republicans get into the white house they'll probably start spending on a bunch of other dumb shit, and continue to fuck us over... Well, I'll be eighteen soon. At which time I'll be buying my first AK... Laugh

Re: Obeezy's new bill.

I'm seriously considering moving to Denmark/Sweden/Norway when I turn 18. America is looking less and less like a place I'm going to want to live in.

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."

Not to mention the debt deal is just a fraud and it bought just a little more time at best(and the republicans acted like they lost everything even though they haven't) but still democrat or republican they are still two halfs of a same coin.
Wish I had an AK .. All I got is a magnum and shotgun.

Re: Obeezy's new bill.

What's this new bill about?

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

~~

Good fortune follows upon disaster;
Disaster lurks within good fortune;
Who can say how things will end?
Perhaps there is no end.

Yeah but its more or less a front.
Only private corporations can stimulate growth in an economy so this is more of a show for the fooled.
