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.

18 minutes agoJulians S Thomase
What do you mean?

18 minutes agoAmanda Dãíshì Örïgömìì
its usual for ppl to hate school
o-o

18 minutes agoJulians S Thomase
Are you asking for American's?

17 minutes agoAmanda Dãíshì Örïgömìì
nooo
just in general
young ppl usually don't like school


17 minutes agoJulians S Thomase
I mean, yeah, a lot of us hate school. What the fuck are they thinking, forcing a bunch on teenagers in to a room and being lectured about useless subjects, which may I add, will not help us in out future lives?

16 minutes agoAmanda Dãíshì Örïgömìì
It will?

16 minutes agoJulians S Thomase
And then the fucker school officials get butt hurt when teens rebel or question the teachers because they also know it's useless.

16 minutes agoAmanda Dãíshì Örïgömìì
It ggives you knowledge ^^
and knowledge gives you oppitunities
and a bright future^^
more you learn the more you get to chose from ^^
over here its pretty much us students who make the rules ^^ no teacher can really tell us what to do ^^
We can walk out of class pretty much whenever without no one saying anything
we even get payed to go to school sooo

14 minutes agoJulians S Thomase
Knowledge on WHAT? Noone fucking cares about the shit they teach. Noones ever going to use Biology in their daily lives. We can learn the same shit the teachers teach on the internet at home. And more. We can learn things that can help US for OUR career choice in the future on our own time. Not being FORCED into a fucking room and being "taught" something, then having to do 100 fucking assignments then taking a dumbass test on it. That's brainwashing. You're not "learning" anything, you're just memorizing it. Then you will forget most of the shit when you grow up because it is useless material to know.
And here, we don't get paid to go to school. They say it's a "Right" ro go, but if we don't go, your parents get fined and the student's get taken to juvenile if you miss too many days. Now how is THAT freedom?

12 minutes agoAmanda Dãíshì Örïgömìì
wth

12 minutes agoJulians S Thomase
School's wrecked the name of learning and our violating our constitution. Our rights to freedom of speech and our freedom to express our self.
Are~

12 minutes agoAmanda Dãíshì Örïgömìì
knowledge gives you good things.. IF you for example want to be a doctor you need to know stuff like biology and stuff
if you want a fine carreer and dont want to be like a stupid person then you study
and we do get paid for school
we get free food to
and free other stuff

11 minutes agoJulians S Thomase
Yeah. IF you want to be a doctor. They should not MAKE student's take Biology if they are not going to use it. I agree, if you want to be a doctor then take biology, but if you don't, you shouldn't be forced to.

11 minutes agoAmanda Dãíshì Örïgömìì
every studying person in sweden gets paid every month
over here you get to chose in your last years what you want to do
but its good to know abit of everything you know ^^

10 minutes agoJulians S Thomase
Here we have to take whatever the fuck they make us.

10 minutes agoAmanda Dãíshì Örïgömìì
ah

10 minutes agoJulians S Thomase
And we don't even get paid.

10 minutes agoAmanda Dãíshì Örïgömìì
well we have some basic subjects we have to take
like swedish, english, math and uhh
yeah those

9 minutes agoJulians S Thomase
We learned all the basic subjects we need to know when we were in Elemenary school. Reading, writing, math and English. Now they are just making us do things. They are practically wasting our childhood and teen lives.
To get "ready" for the future. But they have no fucking clue what the future holds.

8 minutes agoAmanda Dãíshì Örïgömìì

6 minutes agoAmanda Dãíshì Örïgömìì
go shove a plug in your ass and come back when you have something less shitty to say

5 minutes agoJulians S Thomase
See? Because you know I'm right. You don't want to face the fact that schooling is useless. You don't want to face the fact. You just want to believe what you want to believe because you are being small-minded.

4 minutes agoAmanda Dãíshì Örïgömìì
Your not fucking right GAH

4 minutes agoJulians S Thomase
Then I dare you to post a forum and tell everyone what YOU believe.

RE: Check this conversation out.

School is so important you know ^^ it's so great ^^ rainbows ^^ forever! ^^
I was just wondering what the fuck was up with all the ^^'s at one point in the conversation. And damn. She raged hard. Seemed like she had a pretty close-minded point of view about what you were discussing. Like "NO I DO SCHOOL ^^ IT'S IMPORTANT IF IT WASN'T SOCIETY WOULD BE RUINED ^^ (implying society Isn't already royally fucked) YOU'RE WRONG!!! ^^ STUPID GET OUT OMG!!!!!!! ^^"
Can't really blame her for thinking that way, though. What else would you expect from a generally brainwashed person? It's a tough pill to swallow when you realize all the time youre forced to spend in school is generally counterproductive, not entirely beneficial to you, and rendered mostly useless in the real world. Its scary for them to even ponder the possibility of school being a load of shit. People would rather keep believing that they're doing something that's worth all the painful shit you have to go through. Anyone that threatens that comforting bubble of ignorance must be swiftly dismissed and removed from their thoughts.
Ignorance is bliss.

RE: Check this conversation out.

Agreed. Even though she lives in a different country and our schooling is different, it is still the same overall. And I think the points I have made were good ones. But she wouldn't look at it from my point of view.

RE: Check this conversation out.

She might live in a different country, but her response was exactly like one you would expect of someone in the states. Which I was surprised to see, actually. Surprised, but also disappointed as well.
And damn. Typing on the phone is hard. I keep catching spelling mistakes in my posts lol
