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.

Steve Pavlina is the Devil

http://www.chuurchofapathy.com/StevePavlinaSucks.html

I seriously reconsidered my life after this and have subsequently began devoting my life to apathy. I have gone so far, and it has only been forty five minutes since I decided to change my life for good.

Re: Steve Pavlina is the Devil

One of the articles on that site is "The Danger of Positive Thinking".

Sorry but, this is one time where I'm going to be biased, and say FUCK YOUR SITE YOU CUNT.

P.S. To be entirely logical, that article has as much BS in it as it claims Steve's stuff does.

By caring so little about devoting your life to it, its a confusing thing, I know, but that's just how it works. Laugh

All you have to do is try really hard to not try, in seven simple steps. Buy my book online for 29.95 at amazon.com for more.

I think Ahab is being lulzy.

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