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.

-SoulRiser

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.

Saying Hi

Salvete (Roman Latin for hello, plural)! I'm here to soak up some intelligent conversation (rare for me) and talk to some people who sympathize. And yes, I am a real human being, not a spambot. I would know. Basic information as I see it:
Sex: Female
Religion: Conservative Christian, but hopefully not a stick-in-the-mud.
Personality: Smart, perfectionist, and creative.

I'd put a pithy quote here, but I'd rather speak for myself.

Superpowers aren't just flying and lifting several tons. Whatever you're good at, that's your superpower. Learn to deal with it.

Welcome, real human being. Smile

Just a fair warning: I think it'd be best to avoid religious discussion here, it will most likely turn into a rather unpleasant situation. Razz

You're a conservative christian, to be acknowledged as a VIP member by me, you need to provide photos and I'll judge whether you are suitable for the role.
Other than that, welcome to SS!

Yeah, kinda contradictory to the purpose of these forums, but don't deny, its true.

If you are a conservative christian, whatever you do just use real arguments to defend your beleifs. BTW Bulgvar was a troll who was supposedly a Communist Conservatice Christian "Whatever the fuck that means". He would post shit just for the sake of pissing everyone off.

RE: Saying Hi

Thanks for the advice fellow forum-goers. Much too lazy/impatient to put a message for responses but here goes in reverse chronological order of your postings:
To "Faby": I'm from the north-east of America (the American English may have tipped you off) and thanks for being civil. And what does "enttauscht" mean? Saw it in your signature.
To SoulRiser: I enjoy anything sad music-wise. No country, gospel, or soul (except maybe Adele). I read my fantasy novels and go on the web, assuming the paranoid security system my parents installed lets me on anything. Fencing, piano, and possibly an honor band as well. Was that sarcasm I detected when you said that atheists are the only open-minded people?
To "Efs": What do you mean suitable for the role? And listen to "gore goroth": If you are a conservative christian, whatever you do just use real arguments to defend your beleifs. BTW Bulgvar was a troll who was supposedly a Communist Conservatice Christian "Whatever the fuck that means". He would post shit just for the sake of pissing everyone off." Communism isn't even allowable in Christianity and I'm no bigoted troll. If I was bulgvar's missus I'd likely go insane and murder the guy. Or girl, whichever.
To "Lunatic": Was your point in your first post in this thread that Christians can be open-minded too? Please explain for my curiosity. Don't get your last statement.
To "The": Have no fear, I will not be stupid. I couldn't bear to be comparable to my old nemesis, school. I'm pretty open-minded.
To "gore goroth": If necessary I will try to defend my beliefs with real arguments, and thanks for pointing out the generalization that I'll be like bulgvar.
To: "Luizao876": As I have said multiple times (in all likelihood) I'll try not to be bulgvar-ish. Don't generalize too much! And unless someone asks I shall keep discussions to a minimum.

Thanks for the welcome all!

I'd put a pithy quote here, but I'd rather speak for myself.

"Enttäuscht" means "disappointed" in German.

Whenever you aren't familiar with a word, Googling it is the fastest way to find out what it means. Smile Anyway welcome to School-Survival. I'm an atheist myself but I am looking to wed a good Christian girl to have copulation with in the missionary position.

Cool, sounds like an interesting bunch of... er... interests. Laugh
I also tend to like sad music for some reason.
