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.

library

ok, hear me out. ususally during my free period, my friends and i go to the library to get homework done. mostly though, we just talk about stuff that has nothing to do with school. the librarians usually don't bother us.
but today, we started talking about gandhi. we were just as loud as usual, but the librarian came over and told us t stop talking and that she wanted to see us working.
so, does anybody else see a problem with this? we were actually talkiing about something educational for the first time and they choose that day to go after us. we weren't disturbing anybody, our only crime was not having books out. dicks...

I think Buenaventura Durruti is a pretty cool guy. eh kills fascists and doesnt afraid of ruins.

Do you actually think that talking about Gandhi is more educational than talking about Starcraft strategy? They're both educational, but many people do not consider the second to be eductional. So I don't like defining things as being "educational" or not.

Anyway, I do wonder why they suddenly chose to stop you.

yeah, but usually we were just talking about girls and stuff. but when we actually talk about something relevent to school and learning and stuff, they bust us for not doing the work THEY assigned. it just doesn't seem right.

maybe. it seemed kind of funny at the time though, you'd find it more funny if you heard some of our previous conversations, trust me.

Our library is the worst. The staff are horrible. They moan when we talk/whisper. They moan when we don't have books out, they moan if our books are overdue they moan if the book is to ''adult'' or to ''childish''.

Me and my friends used to have a competition to see who could take out the biggest book or the smallest book.
eg. My friend took out a big picture book with only a few words and the librarian said ''Mmmmm that is a good read...." like he was a retard. Another time i tried to take out some collection of classic novels, I was told to take it back, just aswell as it would have broken my back carrying it around all day.

Never, never, never believe any war will be smooth and easy, or that anyone who embarks on the strange voyage can measure the tides and hurricanes he will encounter. The statesman who yields to war fever must realize that once the signal is given, he is no longer the master of policy but the slave of unforeseeable and uncontrollable events.
