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.

hey

hey my school councler found this site and said it would be a good way to keep me from getting kick out of another school. so far i have been kicked out of 5 diffrent schools. I think they said i am 1 strick away from being kicked out of this school. My parents and my teachers all think i have a mental problems and thats why i get in trouble. Truth is it bores me to death and when i'm bored i tend to get in trouble. but everyone prefers to lable me and not listen to me so yeah

Lol, irony. A school counselor.

Oh yeah, and put demonater10 on your Foes list to Ignore him, he's a troll.

Welcome

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

Time to trademark the name, SoulRiser. Good move by the counselor though.

Re: hey

A counselor told you to come here? Wtf
That's pretty cool.

Also, ... like, just 5 minutes ago, I was searching the trademark people to see if there was any patent type thing on "school survival"... that was like just before I saw this thread. Cuckoo

And, no... there's no patent on it. Nice to know some random person isn't going to tell me to give it up at some random point in the future Smile

Welcome, dearest, from the wrath of the Butt Pirates. We likes sex.

Tell your councellor she's a star from me! ^^ (She has to be if she brought ya here.) Feel free to PM me if you need anythings.
