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.

new guy here i suppose, never found a site that i can vent about how much i hate fucking school at least here somebody will listen when i speak,

i dont hardly have any friends used to have 2 main friends that ive been friends with since 4th grade we used to party and have a good time, but they abandoned me because i have a job and i grew up unlike them, my life is a complete hell, parents are fucking schizophrenic idiots that put words in my mouth and make sure to tell everybody that they meet im a mistake and i make their lives hell

im never happy anymore, youll rarely see me smile. i dont know why im not happy anymore i got a decent paying job ( i weld on shit for a living) i can afford anything i want besides paying for truck insurance and my gas. just nothing seems right in my life anymore. i cant enjoy any of the things i used to like to do. like hunting and fishing and shooting my big collection of guns and blowing things up, school gets in the way of everything.

anyways, glad to be here

Sup, Confederate, welcome to S.S, where most of the members are part of the Angsty Angry Asshole Anarchist Assembly.

What hobbies do you have (that you still enjoy in doing)? Why do you exactly hate school?

RE: Sup

most of my hobbies are working on my 4 wheeler, making firework shells, hunting, fly fishing, trapping

my friends abandoned me because they feel like im the immature one because i can hold down a decent paying job and they dont have one, when they do want to hang out with me they always beg me for money and drive them to their girlfriends house so they can ditch me there

i do really enjoy my job, it really takes my mind off of everything else if anything its like a little vacation

RE: Sup

Regarding your friends, that sucks. Anyways, welcome. We rant here often so feel free to share whatever stories you have about school.

How long have you been collecting guns and how many total do you have? I've been interested in doing the same eventually, or at least get out to do some target shooting.

Those 'friends' don't deserve to be called friends. :(
