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.

Hi.

Hello. I'm Anaire. I found this website by searching "School Rebellion" on Google, looking for stories to, I dunno, give me hope? Or something?

A bit about myself:
I despise school and all the teachers and other children there. It's not like I'm stupid-I'm actually top of my class. I'm not lazy and don't want to do the work. My problem is the teachers' ignorance and stupidity, the children's...well, childishness to an unbearable level, the fact that the system is designed to help the lower kids who don't try at ALL and really couldn't care less, while neglecting the kids who are going to be prescribing you medicine to help with your back pain in the future, and because it's basically just a prison to keep kids during the day while using the thin facade of "It helps!". I don't think kids committing suicide and the like because they are bulled by kids and teachers is helpful.
Sorry. Rant over.
Anyways, I'm a bit moody and the mere mention of school can send me into a rant. It doesn't help that in a week I'm going back to school and have to get shots, which sucks because I am absolutely terrified of needles.

Re: Hi.

Welcome to S-S. Really...feel free to rant; that's what it is here for. We can all align with what you are feeling on this subject, at least.

Also, shots for school? Ugh - just ugh.

Cry me a river. If shots were the only thing bad about school I'd be happy to go. Mostly because shots don't bother me all that much.

Public health and all that.

Unless the shots has some bad side effects.

Again, I agree with you. School does teach you things. And once again, you are missing the point entirely. It's not that I disagree with school's mission or the things it teaches. What I object to is that the students are deprived of any choice in the matter. As benign as the intentions may be, any system that forces people into an environment where they have no say in their lives is a situation ripe for abuse of power.

Fuck you. Being poked with needles are on my top ten list of things I've experienced in life that I hate.

Oh, and welcome to the forums Anaire.

I'm not a big needle fan either, but I really hate polio, chicken pox, and meningitis.

Bitch please.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poliomyelitis

Although around 90% of polio infections cause no symptoms at all, affected individuals can exhibit a range of symptoms if the virus enters the blood stream.[3] In about 1% of cases the virus enters the central nervous system, preferentially infecting and destroying motor neurons, leading to muscle weakness and acute flaccid paralysis

People say the problem with me is I have psychotic tendencies and care not about other human beings I don't like and or know. So?

There are many people who have suffered with polio. Presidents, actors, etc. And don't forget all the average people that have had it. There are polio epidemics. They do hurt people. It is a public health risk.

Re: Hi.

My mom just took me to get shots. The worst part? She didn't even tell me. I thought I was going to go to horse riding lessons, then go home like usual. But no. Unknown to my knowledge, she took me to riding lessons, and then, without even telling me on the ride there, took me to the health clinic to get a fucking Tetnis shot.

Look on the bright side, at least now you won't get Tetanus. The disease is worse than the shots.

You live in South Africa, so maybe there aren't laws requiring that stuff there.

Which is stupid, because Africa is an epidemic waiting to happen.

Ouch. Isn't Tetnis something you get by getting an infected wound? Anyway that sucks. I love horses. And horse riding. Also, welcome!

You can get tetanus by basically cutting yourself on rusted metal. Something about the bacteria in rust, if I remember correctly.

Speaking of which, I remember at OP: Proud Warrior II one of the guys got a puncture wound on his knee when he accidentally kneeled down on some rusted barbed wire during the night ops. He was OK since he had a tetanus shot a couple years prior and went to the doctor the next day after everything wound down, but still.

That's a lie, we'll bite whether you want us to or not. :troll:

Second, you didn't get Chicken Pox? Or a shot for it? Not only are you at risk, but you could also get Shingles. I'm at risk of getting Shingles because I had Chicken Pox.

Actually the failure kids and the cocksucking kids get equally as much attention. It's just the kids that don't want to be there get negative attention and the straight asses get opportunities.

To be an anarchist, is to suffer greatly. To be a black woman is to suffer secretly. To be the earth, is to suffer silently.

I wish no harm on anyone, but those whose harmful ways will not stop without the same harm.

It's time we kill this cancerous system, before it kills us and everything left of gaia. Rise from our immaturity and take back our autonomy!
