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.

List of books you've read.

I can't remember anywhere close to all of them, but I'll do my best:

Great Gatsby.
The Jungle
The entire enders game series.
A shitload of Jack Reacher novels.
Super Crunchers
Freakonomics
Animal Farm
Most of the Sherlock Holmes stories.
1984
Evasion
Way of the shadow
The hitchikers guide to the galaxy.
Inside Delta Force
Unix for Dummies
Using Samba, 3rd Edition
The Ugly American

Holy shit there are so many books I can't remember that it's not even funny. Good thing I made this thread, I'll add to it every time I remember one. Hopefully I'll eventually get a comprehensive list that has all of them.

RE: List of books you've read.

How could I ever list them all? I probably read (past tense) about 150 books a year from age 5 to age 14. I didn't read as much after that, but still.
