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.

I am Këîtágâmìî or better known as "Mikes". Which ever you prefer. I'm 15 and decided to join the forums since a lot of people share the same thoughts as I do. I thought this site may be a good source of advice and whatnot. I am glad to be able to join S.S. If you have any questions about myself or anything in that sort, feel free to ask.

Sup, Mikes. Welcome to S.S

What hobbies do you have? Do you love learning (NOT school "learning", REAL learning)? What are your reasons of hating school?

RE: New Member Of S.S.

Today we started a new quarter or what ever the **** we go by. I have the stupidest classes. Damn. Wasting my fucking time with a teacher TRYING to teach English? TRYING to teach Human Geography? I mean, WHO THE FUCK CARES! They say the point of school is to become accustomed to the schedule of work, well it's not always fucking like that, ESPECIALLY if you have a mobile, exciting career. And the fucking teachers just expect me to listen to them and shit because they have more "Authority" well FUCK YOU, BITCH! You're in the same God damn spot I am in, in this society, in this world. The only thing different is that you are an adult. They think they are better than you because they know more than you about ONE subject. But I bet I have more common sense. I may not be the fucking smartest apple of the bunch, but I certainly know what they are doing is pure brainwashing.

RE: New Member Of S.S.

Luizao876, yes, I enjoy learning. I enjoy learning new music, learning to hack, learning how to cook, learning how to reach my goals in life. And it is funny because school is not helping me achieve any of those goals. Hobbies I enjoy, well, as you may of already guessed, I like to be on the computer and search information, I like to listen to music, I like to "Roleplay", I like to watch TV, hang out with people and try new things. Reasons of hating school? I've always been labeled an "Outcast", "ADHD", etc. The things the schools teach I do not agree with, the "Authority" control is annoying me, school rebellion interest's me. But that type of thing doesn't really happen where I live.

Why do you have a bamillion diacritics on your name? Is that a real name? What language?

RE: New Member Of S.S.

I shall not reply to the question you have posted above.
I don't see the reasoning behind it.
Therefore, me seeing it unnecessary to answer, I shall not.
I hope you understand.
Unless I get a valid response to why I should answer the question.
I will choose not to until further notification.
