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.

Hello brothers, I just stumbled here the other day and read some of the articles and man they're inspiring. I just turned 18 yesterday and the past years of school have tasted like stale bread. I know the finals days of school to come will be just the same. :( It's good to see that I'm not the only one who feels like i do. Smile

We're perfectly sane, it's everyone else that's crazy, I know because everything in the universe is just a product of my imagination.

No you got one, but you were a little drunk at the time (ok if you had one more you would have died). You put it somwhere and havent seen it since

This has been a test of the emergency pointless argument system. Had this been a real pointless argument, someone would have been called a facist.

THAT WAS HILARIOUS!!!!

What was my weapon? Sad

Oh, and welcome Gunther.

(this thread is a near perfect example of what goes on here)

(that was sarcasm, it is a perfect example)

(that was sarcasm, it is beyond a perfect example)

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