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: Yo - What's Crackin?

Ok, i agree with you, the school principals and teachers are making us into one big group, mixing us to be all the same, where we cant show our individuality. I am actually at school right now in english, totally bored out of my brains, teacher is talking to individuals about their assignments, and i am awaiting to get mine when it is so close to the bell, it would have been easier if she gave everyone their own then went around individual, ok moving on because none of this really matters. I have average grades, normally a pleasent student, but the one thing about my school that bothers me is the fact that we dont have any privacy on teh computers, you can be that right now every man and his dog, that is apart of the staff factlity, and is on the computers right now, can see waht we are doing. Its just like give us a break, trust us, yet they say they do it for saftey and to keep us on our work projects, but its hard if your done or waiting on a teacher. If we are caught doing this we can get our school user names and stuff like that locked out of the computer and be banned for weeks on end; and they really think that will teach us a lesson??? Cuckoo Another thing, is it just me or is every one sick of late nights doing homework, like most of you here, i hate school, the subjects are lame, and dont offer subjects you want to do. I am the same and look for any chance to pick a fight to show my indiviudality because i dont want to be like some mindless zombie, where no one has an opinion and we basically all think the same. answer me this, why cant be be different???

(this thread is not to b taken lightly)

You fail so hard that you win. God I love you.


If u want ur 'Epic Lulz' so bad, go back on /b/ and watch epic fail guy

I do not Fail
Fail is not an option

TRIGGER WARNING: THIS TRIGGER WARNING CONTAINS TRIGGER WARNINGS!

Dear Tumblrites: Despite your wrongly self-diagnosed PTSD, no line of scientific evidence suggests people can be triggered over the internet. Triggering works through the senses (i.e. smell, taste, touch, vision, hearing.) but it goes through real time; if you're not experiencing it in real life as it's ACTUALLY HAPPENING in your ACTUAL life, you CANNOT be triggered. The only exception to this is if you have a seizure, but then again, that's triggered by epilepsy (i.e. rapidly-changing flashing lights) NOT PTSD. Remembering a bad incident is NOT the same thing as having a flashback. When you remember, you think; when you flashback, you feel.

The thoughts had become corporeal on their own account, were ghosts, e. g. God, Emperor, Pope, Fatherland, etc. If I destroy their corporeity, then I take them back into mine, and say: "I alone am corporeal." And now I take the world as what it is to me, as mine, as my property; I refer all to myself." The Ego and Its Own, pg. 15
