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.

Hello My Friends

Hey guys, I'm a new member here as you can probably see. Let me tell you a bit about myself I have had a lot of experiences throughout the years. I've gone through tons of crap jobs, and sat through all the boring times that come with having no responsibility no power, A time they refer to as your youth, haha. I endured all that dropped out of college and I'm now a Car Sales Manager. I'm doing pretty good in Sales considering I didn't go to college. Trust me kids, Life gets better.

When I was younger I was always a dreamer, You could see it in my eyes. Always looking off into the distance for the next opportunity to make make its way around the bend. I was frequently found thinking about the world ,and how things that are could be better, using my creativity to melt reality and imagination into a delicious role of black and white smores. I remember asking myself in Elementary school "Why do they have to build such ugly roads?" while dreaming up a nice squishy mahogany toned clay layering the street. It was ;however, irrelevant, I had no voice I was only a kid.

It was that day remember promising myself. Promising myself that I'd be there to stick up for the little guys. For those who feel they are alone. I assure you In college You'll find people who think much like yourselves, only there they debate whether the US is a Fascist State as oppose to a Totalitarian one. Regardless I'm glad I dropped out considering my position today.

It's a bad point. The welcome forum is near useless. Seriously stop whining. Soul can do whatever the fuck she wants with this website and the forums. It's her decision to make.

You, do have a point on Mr. Something_Spacey there.

Keep in mind, though that this forum is one of the only forums on the web right now that deal with 'anti school' type ideas.. and as I would know,when you have an old 1961 Porsche Coup your not gonna go drive it around all reckless. Most of the other sites I've visited on the topic have more to do with politics than the well being of our students.

So, I'm sure anyone 'complaining' here has the forums best interest in mind. when they speak their thoughts. Ah It just struck me, wouldn't a nice golden black flag flapping in a whirlwind of air fit perfectly with the spirit of 'movement'?

Re: Hello My Friends

Oh snap you have come at a pretty bad time. Ignore half the posts, everybody is sort of pissed of right know. Basically, for the past couple months, the forum was supposedly in some sort of decline, and many of the boards, including the General board, were full or internet AIDS. As a result, the creator of this site, Soul, decided to hide it and some other boards. Half the posts in this board are useless, so I recommend going to the othr boards like the Politics one for actuall intelligent discussions.

BTW, Hi!

Ah, I like you. You look at all sides of the story. A great quality. Welcome to SS, try to stick around, right now we're going through a helluva rough patch. Worse than Michigan roads, lol.

YOU ARE TOO MYSTERIOUS FOR ME TO HANDLE. YOU NEED TO STOP BEING MYSTERIOUS. MYSTERIES MAKE ME INSECURE AND I FEEL THREATENED.

Anyway you seem like an intelligent member, and I hope you're still around when the forums come back to normal.

By the way, if you're interested in efforts to change the school system, take a look at the links in my signature.
