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.

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: Why was your day great?

I got some slacks and a fucking nice pair of dress shoes today, my mafioso suit is complete.
Also, wearing it gets me a lot of weird looks, *the length and heaviness of the coat coupled with the weather probably has a good bit to do with it* and it just makes me all giddy inside when all my favorite outfits will make people point and avoid eye contact.
My ego is massaged by this.

Re: Why was your day great?

Well first off me and a friend who were kinda in a fight are no longer in a fight! Admitting I wasn't mad anymore and sucking up pride was very annoying, but I'm happy nonetheless!

And then I'm wearing these bright red capri pants...I just really like them. They remind me of one of my favorite characters in a book, so I feel like her while wearing them. ^.^

And then all of my classes were shortened today, which is always fantastic! We had a crappy assembly, but I read during all of it, so that was fun. Today was pretty great!

Re: Why was your day great?

I got a synthesizer pad, but I didn't get an amp because the person at Guitar Center said computer speakers would work. They do work, but they're way too underpowered.

So tomorrow I'm getting a cheap $100 amp.

I hung out at the mall and did blissful nothing, I bought some posters, and chilled with my friend there but that was it.

Re: Why was your day great?

I made a decission. I don't give a fuck. I will be thin. I don't care if it kills me, I'd rather me dead than look like this. So I am happy because I realised that I have something that's worth dying for. Wink

Your appearance is NOT worth dying for. From what I've seen, you're an excellent writer and poet and artist. Don't let all that artistic talent go to waste because you hate your appearance. Don't give up your amazing mind just to have an amazing body.

Post a photo of yourself, and I will be completely honest with you about whether you are fat or thin, ugly or pretty. Just post one...I'm betting you are very thin already.

Re: Why was your day great?

what dreamer said basically, your appearance is NOT worth dying for, i can hardly think of anything that s. but coming from me..

Hidden stuff:
"A 'no' uttered from deepest conviction is better and greater than a 'yes' merely uttered to please, or what is worse, to avoid trouble." - Mahatma Gandhi

"The irrationality of a thing is no argument against its existence, rather a condition of it."

"Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."
-Ben Franklin

"when I was a kid I used to pray for a bicycle. then I realized that god doesn't work that way. so I stole one and prayed for forgiveness."
"I would rather die for something I believe in than live for anything else."
"What is the task of higher education? To make a man into a machine. What are the means employed? He is taught how to suffer being bored." – F W Nietzsche

I like your reasoning, Mkay?!

My day was nice because the 7-year-old I babysat reintroduced me to the pleasures of swinging. That's right, I'm a 17-year-old who still enjoys swinging on swings. Call me immature...but it won't make me enjoy swinging any less. Bouncey

Swinging is so much fun! I absolutely love it, and I'm 16, if that makes you feel less immature. Smile It's so much fun just to swing, I kinda hate it when I'm at the park and the swings are all taken up by kids.

And mine was great because I got some hope I might get to see Shrek: The Musical again!! Not a lot, seeing as I'm jobless and my parents are poor, but I just need $43...somehow, I think I can do it!!!(prostitution would be like, a last resort XD)
