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.

Music I'm new, duhhhh. + Indigo Kids?

I joined, because, simply, I hate school.
Being in school, it has caused me depression, anxiety, and just general boredom.

Listen.
Not.
One.
Thing.
I have learned this year, will I EVER use in my whole adult life. One of the things I freaking HATE~ about school, is... well... actually, EVERYTHING! I mean- the kids are immature. Mostly because of the media. Mostly all of them annoy me. We have to wake up EARLY (torture) to go to MORE torture. It's unnecessary. I hate the teaching system, theres NO creativity in learning. It's stuck inside a tiny little box with the word "hell" written on it in a red sharpie, stuck inside the Devil's attic. I'm also interested in indigo kids, I think I may be one. If you don't know what it is, Google is your friend. So if any of you know about indigo stuff, just message me. Anyway.
School is just filled with negativity. I mean- think. Okay, you actually DON'T want to learn about something that is completely irrelevant to your life? Oh, well you get a bad score on the test, you fail the test, fail school, drop out, become homeless. Anyway, I'm too lazy too continue this rant, maybe some other time when I'm really pissed off. Hope to see more of this forum, yo~

Wow, how in the fuck is what I said "bashing"? I guess we're never allowed to say what we think about anything because disagreeing with someone or telling them they're wrong might hurt their feelings.

Enjoy it here! Don't take shit too personally here. Though why do you consider yourself an indigo kid? What is the special talent you think you have?

RE: I'm new, duhhhh. + Indigo Kids?

Welcome, American Queen Smile

I read about indigo kids a while back, at some point I thought I might be one. But a lot of the stuff I ended up reading all seemed a bit... ooga booga... lol.

The concept is interesting, but some of the people writing about it sound a bit wacko to me. I won't write off the concept based on that though... if you have a good link about it, rather post that here. Smile

RE: I'm new, duhhhh. + Indigo Kids?

'Indigo kid' is a title given to kids by parents who didn't want to accept the AD(h)D label but had to find some way to explain why their kids were so damn stupid.

Again, I agree with you. School does teach you things. And once again, you are missing the point entirely. It's not that I disagree with school's mission or the things it teaches. What I object to is that the students are deprived of any choice in the matter. As benign as the intentions may be, any system that forces people into an environment where they have no say in their lives is a situation ripe for abuse of power.
