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.

Does Bush finally see poor people?

I'm going to breathe life back into this site if its the death of me!

http://www.alternet.org/katrina/25791/

I agree with the article. Bush has had this vain little assumption ever since the War in Iraq began that everything in America was now all of a sudden pristine and clean. Katrina obviously popped that little bubble. What I'm worried about though, is that it hasn't affected him enough.

Dispite the hurricane, I don't think Bush has grasped the fact that there are more than rich white people that populate America. If from some miracle, Bush sees the error of his ways and finally make an effort to eleviate the poverty in this country, I'll be a civil human being and say that his administration wasn't all that bad. But all evidence points to the contrary.

The only reason Texas isn't going to face what Louisiana faced is because its shrubs home state, not because he's learned anything.

Are you serious!? I mean, I know Louisiana was going to get some of the storm but from what I've been told Texas is still getting the brunt of it.

Wow, that cities screwed.
