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.

School starts in three hours and I'm still awake / ACT prep rant

Tomorrow, as well as the rest of the week, will be utter hell. If I DO get any sleep tonight, it'll be one or two hours at best. I'm bringing a shitton of coffee to school tomorrow to keep myself awake. I'll be irritable as fuck and most of my teachers just LOVEE to fuck with me.

Breaks are so.. Terrible. They give you just enough time off to get used to living a normal life, then you have to go back. It's as if they're deliberately fucking with your head. I never get enough time off school.. Just another year after this and I'm free..

And so I don't have to make another thread, I'll put my rant about ACT prep here also.

I have to take the ACT in march. Until then, our advisory classes have been gotten rid of and replaced with these shit "ACT prep" times. It's thirty minutes per day till the actual ACT. thirty minutes I usually used to do my homework because I didn't ever do it at home to preserve my sanity. It's fucking thirty minutes, which is barely enough time for anything, it's a different class room every day and it changes frequently for no reason so it's confusing as shit, and all we do is these "practice" problems from some random book.
How in any way is that "prep"? Sitting there for 30 minutes doing random problems and going over random shit isn't helping anybody. Giving me the answer and moving on doesn't help me, they need to explain HOW they got that answer and re explain some concepts I may have forgotten.

This is the test that they preach over and over will "define my future" (what my Chem teacher literally said) and is uber super duper important. Wouldn't you think the "prep" would make It feel important? My school is so fucking useless sometimes.

Fuck the ACT, luckily the test isn't that hard- I got a 28 in seventh grade.

Just take it, then burn all your test prep papers

That's what I call screwed. School here starts at 7:45 AM, but I have to wake up at 6:40 AM or I'll be late. But hey, think positively. At least you have much time to do what you want to do after school. Otherwise all your day goes in that prison.

I'll probably go to sleep right when I get home.. I'm bringing a lot of coffee to school so hopefully that'll keep me awake long enough to get through the day.

Umm, I think it is better to focus on something and take good walks in the school free times. That'll keep you awake. If you drink too much coffee, you can experience serious bladder needs.

Five minutes between classes but that's just enough time to go to my next class. My school is small but that means a lot of retards standing in the way.

Aha. Well that makes sense. Only first to fourth grade have lunch there. And what a lunch.... you can vomit only from the smell that comes from the kitchen. Blaah.

Middle school "lunches" were terrible and horribly overpriced. Prison food is better than the garbage they try to pass off as food.

Hi, I've been to juvenile detention and this is a common misconception. The food we were served in custody is actually even WORSE than the food schools serve. One bite of the fried baloney and you'll have the worst tasting burps you've had in your life for days. The only pro is that it is free. I got double portions of that trash because I'm skinny.

The key to this is, that is detention school not happy - running i am happy school. If you don't want to eat that, just don't go to the detention school, e.g stay out of trouble.
