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.

^ The Video will explain it all....

So. This is what I plan to strive for as I work my ass off in Highschool for 4 years? And Note: I am in no way judging the IQ level of this women by the way she sounds and acts , but these are the Top of the Top schools. The ones my teachers say that we have to have nothing but 3.7 and up GPA's to even think about getting in to. My Teachers say that these Ivy League schools are filled with Mature, Compassionate, Understanding individuals. Rolleyes yeah cool story bro.....

I've known alot of people who go to Ivy league schools to be kind and studious people....I've also known a bunch who don't deserve an inch of their status.

Its like anywhere else in the world...or any other college for that matter.

Last time I checked, UCLA isn't an Ivy League school. I'm sure it's a great school, but it's not Ivy.

I can't help but think this chick's a troll. If not, it's at least a good source of lulz. Laugh

That was pretty funny. I couldn't see the video because youtube/my computer is fucking up, but I could hear it. I don't think it's a big deal, though. The video, I mean. What the person said. I'm like whatever.

Zoidberg: What is it, already? What's the cause of your anger?
Leela: I guess I would have to say, I hate you!
