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.

Shittons of homework

It's driving me insane... I know I'm gonna hate college, since you supposedly have to spend much more time studying than on class. I'll probably become an electrician or something, rather than an electrical engineer...

Anyway, I've had to get an article and write shit about it (fairly easy, didn't take a lot of time), AND I have to memorize the 50 states and their capitals and where they are for Honors US history by tomorrow. The teacher said that "we already know since we've already studied this on 5th and 6th and 8th grade" or whatever, then I posted on failbook something about me NOT EVEN BEINGS A FILTHY GRINGO and my dad got offended.

School started yesterday. It's a test. And then I had to use highlighters to highlight stupid bullshit in a longass paper about a book (evidence, arguable crap, and the thesis) that's about two dozen pages long, for AP English. And that's about it. All in two days. I just rushed through it... it was fucking boring.

The teacher for US history is unlike any other, though. I guess I'll discuss it once I have time/feel like it.

I want to bang my fucking head against a wall. At least I'm not taking 4-5 AP classes. I've seen Asians carrying 4-5 books... it's insane. Oh and also we have a 6-period schedule erry day, not broken, I don't know if there's even a short day.

omg i hatez school because its sooo much workz :(((

Education at a four year school. I find that just going to class and taking notes is often enough for me. I studied for shit like Biology and sometimes math.

Well if I studied engineering I'll probably have to study shittons and shittons. Also I probably got about a 20% in that test.

Yea if you do engineering your gonna have to work on it. It is a major that requires it.

Again, I agree with you. School does teach you things. And once again, you are missing the point entirely. It's not that I disagree with school's mission or the things it teaches. What I object to is that the students are deprived of any choice in the matter. As benign as the intentions may be, any system that forces people into an environment where they have no say in their lives is a situation ripe for abuse of power.

RE: Shittons of homework

Hour of Algebra

30 minutes of science

45 minutes of english

^^ Daily homework.

I can honestly say I despise being in "Advanced" classes which is just lingo around here for "derp herp do more work."

"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?

RE: Shittons of homework

Well that sucks and it's way more than I have NOW, except I didn't do my English project and some other shit. I used to have like 30 min/an hour of algebra erry day (I rushed/was often pretty fast) and I didn't really complain, I don't know why. Any homework I have to do at home is near fucking impossible to do now.
