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.

parents being stupid

My damn mom and dad are being really retarded. They are forcing me to get a job, aka working at my dad's company for making plastic shit. 9i don't know exactly what he does there) Anways, no matter how much i tell them that it is not neccesary for me to get a job, she always comes back at me with the argument that i need some real world experience, i need to learn the value of a dollar and all that shit. It makes me so frustrated Ranting And then i tell her that i have no real use for any money because i don't really need to buy anything, and that i already know how tough it is in the REAL world (i thought i was already in the real world. The Matrix possibly?) che just blows me off and says that i'm getting a job. Help! i need you guys to help me think of something that will get me out of this! I don't havemuch time either because my first day of work is tomarrow... dum dum dummmm Tripleevil

this one girl in my class had to sign up for sports, and she didnt want to, so she came up with this fake tennis team. she just made a permission slip on the computer, and had her mom sign it. the only thing she did was hang out with her friends. her parents bought it, then they caught her...

idk u could try somethin like that. it might be kinda hard, but it could work.

My dad is just following my mom i don't think he really cares) i bet her parents got pissed at her when they found out eh?

sigh...

alright - their argument for making you work is lame. "value of a dollar"? how about the "value of having time for your life"? but that's another rant altogether.

it's just the fact that they "can" force you to do stuff that's pissing you off, not so much the work, right? maybe you can save up and move out ... Evil

you know that saying "time is money"? well they got it wrong. time is greater than money.

tired of working? boss got you down? 9 to 5 just not doing it for you? don't want your parents to force you into a job?

you're not alone. in today's fast-paced economy and large job market, some people just can't keep up. if you're one of them, there's a wonderful new opportunity to earn a living in the economy of today:

My seminar will show you-the wonderful world of FREELOADING!

In this seminar, i'll illustrate the finer points of getting something for nothing and managing to live a carefree life as a parasitic maggot feeding on the decaying corpse of society. remember, we put the free in freeloader!

Step 1: Lose your dignity

to live as a scammer, you have to take your consience and throw it out the window after tearing it's legs off so it can't come back. when your uptight neighbors give you snobby looks, remember: they smell like cat pee and you don't give shit about them.

Step 2: Seize every opportunity

whereever you go, what ever happens, always ask yourself "how can i exploit this for personal gain?" when you see a chance to get something free, TAKE IT! soon, figuring out ways to exploit the system will become a relex.

Step 3: Get some endurance

sometimes when you have to improvise, it's not always comfortable. you've gotta get used to things being dirty, half-eaten, or covered in dog shit. stuff happens. deal with it.

some tips:
-when you want a free phone call, call the national runaway switchboard claiming to be an abused child, and they'll leave a message at the number you tell them for free.

-in the cafeteria, trade test answers for food. also, find food that's half eaten, left at a table, or thrown at you because you're so annoying and eat it. (retardhick and i have tried this, it works)

-if you're thirsty and outside, drink from someone's hose spigot.

-use dumpsters. you can find anything there, i found headphones, history books and photos of the Civil War.

-make modern art. scribble meaningless lines on a paper, then talk for hours in an annoying voice about how it expresses the soul or someshit like that, and people will buy it for hundreds of dollars.

-write something controversial, and you'll get tons of free publicity. insulting the church works, but you'll want to have race in there somewhere. remember, it doesn't have to bo good, just insulting.


I hope you've enjoyed this presentation on the wonderful world of freeloading. hopefully, you will soon be onyour way to a happy life of living without working a day in your life.

garunteed success or your money back! note-money back offer not actually true.

yeah soulriser, except my mom won't listen to logic. Don't get me wrong, i love my parents, it's just that they get on my nerves sometimes, but i know deep down they are trying to do what's best for me. sigh* i wish they'd just let me stay home and enjoy my summer break. I had my first day at work today and it was extremely boring. 9 to 5 i took plastic things apart from other plastic things, but in a way it was better than school. i am getting paid so that makes it a little better lol. anyways i'll keep on trying to get them to see it my way. Razz oh and slavemistress, get off my back about grammar. god.
