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.

"Interpretive Reading of Prose"- Redone.

Alright- This is pretty awesome. I am allowed (to an extent)to use any material that I would like (This extent is that it must be rated PG or lower) for this assignment, as long as it is in paragraph form. "Expression is very important in this presentation." I am hoping to find a hilarious "anything" that will take 3-8 minutes to read, and expression is easily used with it. It should have the average 8-9th-grader rolling on the floor laughing. xD

If one could find an especially short and effective article on school, that would very well for this assignment, I would assume it would fit very well into the guidelines given to me.

I could also do some sort of demonstration that would take 5-10 minutes, but meh- I couldn't find anything very fun to do fr that one. If you think of anything, please offer the idea. /:

Did I mention that I would be doing this just over 24 hours from the posting date of this post?

ANYTHING written paragraph form, the title is misleading.

I would have recommended a spoken word version of "Beheaded" by The Offspring, but then I remembered that it's supposed to be prose. =/


I got nothin'.

D: It can be anything written in paragraph form.

D: I think that would be a good way to get me thrown into counseling... Lol

Articles section on SS mayba?

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