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.

8 more days and I'm free!

I often forget about the existence of the thanks button on these forums...

RE: Countdown until summer vacation.

I live in Asia, so I've got roughly (63 days) 9 weeks left till the last day of school and 4 weeks until my O-level exams. My school ends in July 13th, but I only get 50 days of vacation. My mocks start at the end of the year and I have roughly less than a year before my IGCSE Finals.

Countdown until summer vacation.

Let me get into the necrobumping fun!

Summer break is a few months away. Late March right now. If I ace the CHSPE, Summer will essentially begin in May, and I won't have to go back.

I wish Kumaneko were still around. We could do with an Asian POV, and knowledge of Asian education (or at least education in whatever country he/she lives in, which I'm guessing is Japan). They get even less time off, and in Japan it's almost all fact retention.

Yeah, I agree.

We had Neried from Singapore, but he hasn't been on since February 09. lanbo was special because he came from the People's Republic of China. And then there's Rule_Breaker, from India. But yeah, I'd love a fair number of Koreans and Japanese on this site.

We're nearing April. I like April because after April is May. And after May is June. April is the first sign of "We're nearing the end."

I'm pretty sure Random's not disabled if you join The Basement group. Should be in your user control panel or something.

RE: Countdown until summer vacation.

I'm definitely already in the basement group, but can't post... Weird. I think if you're
not in the basement group you can't even see the basement... IIRC.
There's a sticky in there that says something about having to request to join,
meh. I don't come here often enough to care that much I guess.

Oh, I think it might be related to the new usergroup posting permissions. Ask Soul to look into it.
