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.

Fucking Spanish, how does it work?

I'm in Spanish 3 becuase I cheated and B.S'd my way through the last 4 years of spanish. (Spanish 1 part 1. - Spanish 1 part 2 - Spanish 1 and Spanish 2.)

Now I'm in Spanish 3 and I have no idea what the fuck is happening. The teacher doesn't teach. She just hands out assignments and tells us to do them. We have a quiz tomorrow, and on tuesday we have something called "Ropa Loca" in which we have to dress "crazy" and talk about our clothing for a few minutes in front of the class. I'm royally fucked.

Also, I'm in a class with a bunch of overachieving honors kids. They know what they are doing. (Usually.) I look like a dumbass on the daily.

Re: Fucking Spanish, how does it work?

I just had my spanish speaking exam, was asked questions and had to talk for 6 minutes, I had to improvise most of it. I don't know what to suggest, could you not piece anything together?

This is an example of schooling being demeaning. I would never participate in that.

Say, "No quiero participar en esta degradante actividad."

Re: Fucking Spanish, how does it work?

Ironically enough, my Spanish class has killed any previous desire I had to learn the language.

Re: Fucking Spanish, how does it work?

es posible sustituir las clases español por inglés?

Tengo un profesor de español bueno; tiene un conocimiento de Linux y Android, y es muy culto en las historias de muchos países. Él también sabe hablar alemán y francés.

Soy estudiante de español por ocho años. Actualmente yo estoy tomando español cuatro, y el año que que viene, yo tomaré español cinco.

Nope, I have to stick this year out, then I'm done... I asked if I could drop it for a study hall, and they said it would be a "pass-fail" in which I'd fail the class.

Wouldn't the shower just wash off the cologne though?

Re: Fucking Spanish, how does it work?

Wow. Dress crazy and talk about your clothes for a few minutes in front of the class... That's so demeaning in so many ways. I wish public presentations and shit like that would always be optional, like by law or something. I don't know how a teacher doesn't see anything wrong with that.

RIP GORE GOROTH

He was an hero. He will always be remembered.

Re: Fucking Spanish, how does it work?

So tomorrow's the day I have to do this stupid "ropa loca' bullshit. I haven't even figured out what the fuck I'm going to say nor what I'm going to wear. It's fucking 4am on a school night. Hopefully we get a two hour delay or get the day off or something, if not however, I'll just stay up all night and drink coffee.

I'm probably going to do the presentation because it's pretty much half of my grade and I need to pass this class with at least a D+. The way I figure it, I'll probably just wear something normal and tell them to shove it up their asses.

Maybe I'll wear some shit that doesn't match or something. If they think I'm going to look like a dumbass though, they can go jump off of a fucking cliff.

Naw, I actually just said I wasn't ready, and didn't do it. Don't have Spanish for another 2 days or so. I'll think about it, but I seriously have to pass this shit.

Re: Fucking Spanish, how does it work?

Why do you have to pass spanish 3? Isn't only 2 years required? Or are you going for some kind of uppitty honors degree? Cuckoo

Re: Fucking Spanish, how does it work?

Not sure really, mostly because my parents will bitch and moan and ground me if I don't pass. I'll scrape by with a D+ if I pass with a B this semester, which is unlikely. I'm probably going to go to a pretty standard college though. If I go at all.
