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.

You've read the entire series? I love the books, especially Black Water.

If you're reading this, I killed myself.

I like it for the lush, rainforest environment and devolved humans, but you're probably right on the furry thing. I wish that MacHale would give Gunny his own book, I prefer him over Bobby as a character.

If you're reading this, I killed myself.

Pendragon is pretty excellent!

But yes, Black Water was one of my favorites because cats are cool!

The Quillian Games are pretty grand as well.

RE: Blog about random shit that no one cares about.

Why don't more people realize that besides barring kids from basic rights, school could be considered a crime against biology and nature? I don't like to pull this out often, but it recently dawned on me (Mom as doctor FTW) that teenagers are genetically designed to stay up later and sleep later (Now I have no idea why, it's just been stated several times this week), but no, school still starts at 7 am and ends at 3 pm. So, of I've got science, genetics, and chemistry on my side of the argument, why do I still lose? I mean, from the fuckers who teach science, and claim to want to better our kids, why do we still lose when we have these elements on our side?

And then genetics be damned, why should I have to go to bed at a certain time and wake up at a certain time if I don't want to? I get the whole "Well that's life sonny, you grow up and get a job and do the same thing." No, no, what kind of an argument is that? We live in a country where the selling point is being able to go out with a dollar, and then end up with a fortune, why didn't you do that? And just because you decided to do the whole go to college get a job song and dance, why should I? Jobs are already tight as it is, how is it going to be in 8-12 years when I get out of college? Why can't I go out and try to do what I want, why can't I do that without getting told "That'll never work"?

Gah, just fuck the rut with schooling we've come to.
