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.

If I don't do well in school...

If I fuck up school and can't get in to uni. Not likely but still a big possibility.
I will spend every day for a whole year minimum learning either:
a) Programming languages
b) 3d modelling (blender, 3ds max)
c) Special Effects for movies (adobe after effects)
d) Music production (ableton live, fl studio)

So:
If highschool = pass then uni
If highschool = low score/no pass then easier uni course or steps a to d.

Life is planned out. Now I can sleep, fap and play vidya

Yeah, but in Bulgaria you need High School diploma even for web-designer or whatever. You basically become homeless without that fucking degree.

But hey, you can pass with F+

In America all you need to do is get atleast D's in every class and pass the CAHSEE (The test that ANYone can pass on the first try) and if you are unfortunate enough you have to do some community service and you get high school degree.

RE: If I don't do well in school...

Well I'm gonna pass high school either way. Passing high school isn't the hard bit, it's getting a good ranking that matters and passing your pre-requisite subjects.

RE: If I don't do well in school...

I live in the US, and in my state, Virginia, you can go to community college and then get automatic transfer to a four year university after two years at the community college assuming you get the meet the GPA and course requirements. So I literally have NO REASON to put more effort in high school anymore aside from what it takes to acquire D grades. I'm not cutting off my options; I am just saving my time. Especially since it's possible I won't even GO to college in the first place. Btw here you can drop out, get a GED, go to community college and then transfer to a four year school. There is no real incentive to attend HS beyond the dropout mark, except immediate admission to a four year school out of HS.

Pass those shit classes and explore your interests. You'll get a hit eventually. It might take you a few years, so be patient. Accept the possibility that you may have to live in poverty with some other "fuckups" in a trailer for a while.

Who am I? Who are YOU?
