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: What are some of your most controversial opinions?

SoulRiser, can I worship you? You don't even have to answer, because I already do.

I agree with most things you've said.

But I'd like to add about the job/money thing...it made me think of another thing.
All people in this world are wasting time. Money, war, economy, what the hell is with this crap? It's all worthless. Somebody invented the idea of money just so there could be order but it's really only PAPER. And war? Some of the stuff we fight about is the dumbest shit EVER. Everything people are living with today makes no sense. Everyone thinks they have serious problems like "OMG, I'm in debt", "OMG he broke up with me.". You know what I say? Who the fuck cares? Why does that stuff fucking matter anyway? It doesn't. We should spend all this time we're wasting traveling the universe and finding out more about the place that surrounds us. People think everything revolves around them and they think everything is important. IT'S NOT. Does planet Venus care if you tripped and scraped your leg? Does Callisto feel bad for you if one of your relatives dies? It's a natural part of life. Without death, there wouldn't be life. Why are people so scared of death anyway? It's so stupid if you think about it. I know I keep jumping from one subject to another but I'm on a ROLL and I won't stop. It really hit me hard today. Emotions are stupid, they're all in your head. REALITY doesn't have emotions. You know what else I hate? When mothers think their baby's smile is the most beautiful thing in the world. HAHAHAHAH, are you kidding me? Babies are ugly creatures. You know what's beautiful? The mysteries of the universe, which we should be finding out about right now instead of going on with out sad pathetic lives like we are right now. WAKE UP PEOPLE!
