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.

I was sad that no one at school had talked to me that day, and so felt really depressed. Then a kid from the special ed class came and showed me this tiny coke from Germany, and told me about how his dad brought it to him and made his day. That made my day. Smile

"I have been allotted months of futility,
and nights of misery have been assigned to me.
When I lie down I think, ‘How long before I get up?’
The night drags on, and I toss and turn until dawn." Job 7:3-4

Both of my parents are teachers. My body is bound, but my mind is free.

RE: little things that make life worth living

porn

sitting down on the computer to do random unproductive shit (which depresses me at the same time)
Socializing well, making others and myself happy

Going to the beach near sunset. Just did that a few days ago, and talked to someone who was a few years younger than me. My parents: "LOL HE HAS TO BE VERY SMART TO TALK WITH SOMEONE OF ${my_name}'s AGE".

"Hiking", just went once without sticks or backpacks for a short distance. Feels good man.

Chilling with mates.
Or getting the whole class to piss off a teacher.
Or playing some big ass soccer match at school lunch and breaking a window lol
At least at my school we're all funny cunts so it's alright.
