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.

Job burnout in relation to school.

Quote:Could you be experiencing job burnout?
Ask yourself the following questions:
Quote:Have you become cynical or critical at work?
Quote:Do you drag yourself to work and have trouble getting started once you arrive?
Quote:Have you become irritable or impatient with co-workers, customers or clients?
At times.
Quote:Do you lack the energy to be consistently productive?
Yes. In regards to schoolwork.
Quote:Do you lack satisfaction from your achievements?
Yes. My "achievements" are pointless..
Quote:Do you feel disillusioned about your job
Most definitely.
Quote:Are you using food, drugs or alcohol to feel better or to simply not feel?
Not regularly, but at times I use some recreational drugs to blow off some steam, or just have a good time for a change.
Quote:Have your sleep habits or appetite changed?
Well, I've been stuck in this "job" for my entire life, so I wouldn't know, but yeah, probably.
Quote:Are you troubled by unexplained headaches, backaches or other physical complaints?
Not really, but I do get headaches at times. Florescent lights are a bitch.
Quote:If you answered yes to ANY of these questions, you may be experiencing job burnout. Be sure to consult your doctor or a mental health provider, however. Some of these symptoms can also indicate certain health conditions, such as a thyroid disorder or depression.
What if I answered yes to all of 'em?

Re: Job burnout in relation to school.

Quote:Did you choose this job?


Quote:Are you paid for this job?


Quote:Is your boss respectful to you?

Absolutely not

I'm so sick of all these people but I'm scared to be alone...

No, I pay for this "job"
Everything is so ageist nowadays. You can't be 'stressed' unless you are an adult.


We have both went to 'work' at 8 am.
You got a 1 hour lunch break.
I got a 30 minute one.
You got out of work at 5.
I got out of work at 3.

You got 0 hours of work to do at home
I got 5 hours of work to do at home

Now, if we add everything (including the lunch breaks....)
Me: 12 friggin hours
You: 9 hours

B4 u say 'lunches dont count narblet'

Me: 11:30
You : 8

They obviously don't know what 'stress' is.

War is stupid.
