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.

5 hours till my first day; && I still haven't done shit

So let's get straight to the point:

1. School starts in roughly four hours and forty-five minutes. This will be my first day of school since December fifteenth. This will also be the day that I return to my hell-of-a-school. It doesn't really help when my facade makes it seem like I'm actually sane when I really wanna fucking rip of the heads of:

a) My ever-long list of idiotic teachers.
b) The two-faced bitch-I-know-more-than-you girls.
c) The bastards under-covered as "boys".

I have to return and attend for pretty much another fourteen weeks, five days a week, ten hours a day, as well as coping my studies, pressure, stress, Mid-Term exams, more pressure and parents expectations.

2. ...I haven't even touched my holiday homework yet. And it's getting closer to the time I've gotta get up. Usually, it's something I get over and done with. But when you've gotta do a Physics report, 14 analytical notes and 2 essays about 10 different kinds of poems and a novel, it's pretty hard to get "excited" about. Doesn't help that all my friends seem to magically be able to get it all done.

And all on my mind right now is how the fuck am I supposed to face all this shit.

PS. Pardon my profanity - if it bothers you.

RE: 5 hours till my first day; && I still haven't done shit

Profanity doesn't bother anyone here...at least I hope it doesn't. I find there's a lot less pressure whenever you just DON'T do the work. This works very well for me...but if you are trying to do it, there's probably a reason, so don't not do the work. Unless you don't want to, of course.
Anyway, yeah I go back tomorrow...I feel like a prisoner on death row.

No, this is Patrick.

RE: 5 hours till my first day; && I still haven't done shit

Not doing any work feels great for me - more time to do the crap I actually want to. That is, until I think about my parents. I empathize you - I can practically feel my body clock just counting the seconds till I actually have to go. I think I'll give up on sleep tonight.

Sadhug I know how it feels. There's no advice I can give you other than hang in there. It's good you've got a place to vent.

Let go of all desire for the common good, and the good becomes common as grass.

RE: 5 hours till my first day; && I still haven't done shit

...Slower than a turtle. I'm guessing I'm not getting any sleep for tonight. I'll probably be dead tired tomorrow, I guess. I've completed the little fucker known as my Physics Report, and I have half a mind to not even touch my English nor Literature and let my teacher screw himself since he hardly marks any of our homework.

RE: 5 hours till my first day; && I still haven't done shit

I know the feeling OP. I went back to school yesterday, on just a couple hours of sleep and felt like hell. I woke up at seven, a mere twenty minutes before school starts, thanks to the alarm in my phone being faulty. So I threw on some clothes and drove to school, shaking like an epileptic in my car from not having time to warm it up, so I wouldn't be late. I even forgot my glasses. Easily ended up one of the worst school days of my life. I should have just skipped first period.

Hang in there. Every single one of us is here for you and can relate to the problems you face every day in the organized institutions for insanity we call school.

Who am I? Who are YOU?

I had to select it all and was on the verge on pressing ctrl-numpad+ but I didn't have to Razz

Dude... can you try another, more readable format? I sympathize with you... I also have a shitload of homework (Physics, Math report, History superfuckinghardannoying ass project, English project in which I'm writing a few essays for advertisements), and I've barely even touched them and school starts in less than a week... hope you're able to survive that shit and reach happiness somehow.

Then why are you on an anti-school forum?
We are not anti-education, we love learning. We just don't like being told what to learn, we prefer to learn by ourselves. This doesn't mean isolating ourselves from society, it just means we control what we do. And we are the ones who have control over our own lives.

Hi, don't get me wrong. I don't like school, but you should realize that we can't change things.. at least at that moment.

You're only hurting your possible grade and at the end (wow you heard that phrase) you will be a waste collector because fuckin' right you didn't did that essay.

RE: 5 hours till my first day; && I still haven't done shit

... I just got back from said hell hole. I survived, which actually just means I have to deal with it again, tomorrow (Including the days that follow after).

1. It's pretty awesome to see replies.

2. Yeah, I'm in Asia, school runs for 10 hours over here, and it's easily 3,187.80 USD of fees for fourteen weeks of seeking butt-ugly faces. Plus, lunch break only serves an hour here. Nine hours, think you can make it?

3. I'll try to lower the "unique-ness" of my text. Pfft.

4. I just left the remaining crap of my homework to rot - and guess what? It's a good thing I did, because the school announced that my previous English & Literature teacher fled to Ireland on "some serious cases" - LUCKY~ (And I'm seriously not joking. They're getting a replacement, we'll see how that pens out)

5. On the down hand, my art-teacher dumped me into Physics 2 for the last period - also known as Prep 10 - since he was probably busy doing nothing. two hours of Physics with a 50-year-old Dutch teacher who hates your guts and can't even pronounce your name could very well kill.

6. It seems like I have five pieces of Art pieces to finish in a week. How generous of my teacher.It seems like he's more of a sadist since his third divorce.

7. Some creepy stalker was following me around school today. That kinda attracted more stares than I can imagine. And I'm not kidding, he's a student who won't leave me alone. I'm thinking of getting some help. If there's anyone out there: HOW THE FUCK DO YOU GET RID OF A STALKER IN YOUR OWN SCHOOL. (Please, I'm dealing with enough)

8. Any of you guys are still forced to study Language Arts? or also known as 2nd Language? My country's been enforcing it on my pathetic life since I was potty-trained. I've gotta deal with some smelly-breathed lecturer for two hours tomorrow. Ode to joy, yeah?

9. Any interesting stories out there that won't make my life feel like the pits?

We CAN change things. Even though the chance is slim, this is an issue we fight to the death, that school should not be compulsory or at least changed to become more liberal. Even if compulsory schooling doesn't get abolished, at least let there be some better alternatives.
Dropping out of school doesn't mean you'll have a shit job. Some of the richest, famous and most intelligent people were against school and some dropped out. Some jobs require school, some don't. But this stereotype that once you drop out or fail school you'll be a low life is completely false.

There's a reason I'm on this site. It's because I know I can't change it. I don't like it. I wouldn't mind doing it, if I wasn't dealing with people with attitudes you have no idea about.

Why else would i create a thread to RANT.

Oh geez, I've been doing that for months. He's persistent. He doesn't get your attention? It's suddenly aware that he's going to sing a song for you on stage.

PS. It's "Kumaneko". :l
