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.

exam

does anyone else having them come up? Mine starts tomorrow. :( I want to die.

*que rant*

_stop reading if you wish_

OK fuck this why does your entire future hang on a few hours of your life? I mean why at this age, we're teenager some of them get PMS(y) and some believe the world is about to end and some are too hungover from saurday to notice their shirt's on back and some cry themselves to sleep wishing things were different and the rest are just retards. But as I just pointed out everyone is different, what happens to the good old days of apprentices and learning a skill and nobody giving a fuck about your intelligence? Does it not make more sense to examine those that are past the teenage age? I mean teenagers and just all retards (myself included) in thirty years your gonna look back and think, "What a retard" not "oh if i'd spent one more hour studying for that exam my life would be so much better" Upyours to school systems

COMMUNISM is when you have two cows, the governement takes both and gives you the milk
SOCIALISM is when you have two cows and give one to your neighbour.
NEW DEALISM (is when things go wrong) is when you have two cows, the government takes both, shoots one and milks the other but then throws the milk away.
CAPITALISM is when you have two cows and then sell one to buy a bull.
FACISM is when you have two cows, the government takes both and sells you the milk.
NAZISM is when you have two cows, the government takes both and shoots you.

I typed: "end of the world" into google and saw the hiroshima bombing and 9/11, irony much.

Re: exam

Exams suck.

Like a lot.

I hate taking them. What sucks most is that they always take place at the last 2 days of school, so I can't take the final day off.

Maybe a minor thing, but I enjoy my breaks from school.
