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.

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. Send me a message if you'd like to keep in touch with me & Steve.

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: I HATE GYM!

To begin with, bullying is extremely common in PE. I remember that social exclusion was always cruellest during PE.
Furthermore, if I'm running, I barely have enough breath to do that, let alone sustain a conversation.
And some of the more authoritarian teachers will make you run/do push ups for ages if you dare to say a word.

If I didn't have to take PE, I could use the saved time for exercise.

No. In some of my classes, I feel like I'm actually learning something (then again, my school isn't as bad as the average American high school). I'm making slower progress than with self-education, but in some of the classes I'm making some. In the others I can daydream, or just do some work I brought in-as long as I'm good at keeping it secret. I can't do that during PE.

Oh, and about the health crap-I always lose weight over the summer and put it back on when school resumes. I go from a lower healthy weight, to as-high-as-you-can-get-without-overweight one.

PE class is simply wrong in principle. You round up a bunch of innocent minors and force them to do pointless, embarrassing, and often painful things. You tell them it's for their own good, and remind them that they really have no choice. Think about it-how would people feel if adults were being forced into this?

Don't take life so seriously, it isn't permanent.

Your school has a class in which you go to wal-mart and torture the shoppers/employees? Is that even legal?

Maybe it's 'cause I went to the super rich school, but none of the things we did in PE were pointless, and only rarely embarrassing and painful. At least not in highschool anyway. We did pilates, yoga, meditation, and life guard training, as well as the regular sports routine. Our teachers also spent alot of time teaching us actual nutrition science, such as what cholesterol is, what each vitamin and mineral does for your body, and so on.

I HATE GYM!

I hate PE. When I used to do PE, two girls were punching me in the changing room, one took a pin from her headscarf and stabbed me, the fourth one stole my uniform, three girls swore at me in Polish, PE teacher gave me too many detentions for no reason, eighth girl tried to make me move to a mental illness school, ninth girl kept telling me that my art teacher is dead, people kept spraying, people wore socks during gymnastics, my team always lost because of me, students in other teams were cheating while playing cricket and the girl who stabbed me with a pin also pissed on the floor in the changing room.

I'm glad I'm not doing PE until the 22nd of June. (Or anymore, if I won't have PE on my Year 10 timetable, which would be even better)

I HATE GYM!

I'm from Poland. I was born there. I live in Ireland now, and don't speak polish unless it's to my family. I never really liked that country and I have my own, personal reasons for it. And if I went to a polish school I would've killed myself long ago. I know what it's like there. Worse than what I heard happens in America. And I have a lot of other reasons, but I don't hold anything against Polish people.

"A good artist should be isolated. If he isn't isolated, something is wrong." - Orson Welles.

I thought she was Albanian? I'm unsure.

The UK is a much more diverse country than you think. Especially London and a few other cities.

@Depression101 yeah you're right about Polish schools. I remember watching a Polish film about how shitty education is there and the suicide culture there (it was a Polish version of 13 Reasons Why, but it was made back in 2013).

RE: I HATE GYM!

I used to annoy the jocks. they would then hit me. it was fun. trolling is fun when they deserve it.

I'm getting slightly re-acquainted with my inner asshole. the irony of that statement by the way is that i did spend a lot of my childhood with my thumb up my ass...

I'm Polish. The reason why I swore at the kids in Albanian is because I thought my math teacher won't understand me. She understands Polish swear words, but isn't Polish. She told me that she can swear in many languages when one girl (The one who pissed on the floor in the changing room) swore at me in Polish during maths.
