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.

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.

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.

I highly suggest Mobb Deep's albums The Infamous and Hell on Earth, if you have not listened to it yet.

Good shit all around. Though if you're looking for House of Leaves, it'll take you a long time to find it.

Yeah, those two are good. Being a dinosaur I held off on the whole "electronic book" thing until I got a tablet last year...and now the idea of spending money on a physical book is almost ridiculous. I mean, I still do and would...but it's nice to have my own personal library at my fingertips.

Eh, I prefer hard copies. It's nice to have that available, especially since digital data gets lost easily.

RE: E-Books

School drains any desire to read from me, yet I persist.
I read the entire Harry Potter series on e-book in English. Was an experience. I am beerdrunk.

E-Books

If I want to read an e-book I either buy one on my tablet or download a free PDF from the internet. I mostly get them for free if I can't find them in the bookstore. Since I don't usually spend money on phones and tablets. But if I really like a e-book I read for free and come across it in a bookstore, I'll still buy it because I wanna support the author and I like physical copies.
