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.

So I Actually Joined...

For the past couple of weeks I have been reading, looking around and getting to know School-Survival and its forums. I figured it was a cool place, but I really didn't think much would go on, since many of the first ones I saw were raging rants. When I delved deeper in I found much more profound and intelligent posts, and figured I'd join immediately, and did so just a few minutes ago.

I look forward to becoming an involved, active member of the community.

Another thing that drived me was to get some things off my chest, and hopefully get people who have experienced similar things as me, who can help me. Which I will do, very(very) shortly.

On to it, hello new consumer of time(An actually important one).

I am an American Male in 7th Grade, who simply cannot find anyone or anything to help me get through school.(Except for SS, of course)

Welcome To SS, Another (AKA Angry Anarchist Asshole Adolecent Assembly, or AAAAA). Hope you have good times in the community.

Tell us more about yourself? Hobbys? Likes? Dislikes? What do you exactly hate about your school (or all schools, in general)?

This forum is like no other really. Don't take anything personally or too seriously and you'll be okay.

If you do take things personally and/or seriously, enjoy getting involved in retarded e-drama and e-faggotry.

Fuck you you stupid cocksucking nigger.
Ok I had to get that out of the way. Now we can be friends.
I had to make sure you were ready to handle SS.

No, this is Patrick.

RE: So I Actually Joined...

lol, yes this place is quite weird. Sometimes we have profoundly deep conversations, and sometimes there's some really stupid drama going on, the rest of the time it's just somewhere inbetween.

So, welcome to SS! Please leave your sanity on the pile by the door over there. Try not to trip over it. Razz

Hey, you seem like a pretty cool guy. As everyone said, lots of trolling and whatnot goes on here but you should learn how to handle it soon enough.

RE: So I Actually Joined...

I(usually) go to school every morning at 7 AM, sit through 6 hours(or 8), come home depressed after the last few periods, then fall asleep for 2-6 hours. I'm guessing this is because I walk about 3-4 miles home ever day and every morning, and my last period is gym class, where i'm the only one who actually runs/jogs the entire mile or half a mile or 1/3 of a mile or whatever else it is that day. Then, when I wake up, I here my mom ranting about how i'm not going to fall asleep tonight because of it, and I ignore her every day. Then I get on my laptop, another thing my mother complains I spend way to much time on(which she is probably right about), and play computer RTS-genre games until 1 AM, at which time I fall asleep, and do it all over again. Every now and then I will read a book or write in my journal.

I just find school to be...Annoying. And boring. Like im locked in a cage where the only place I can get salvation is my own mind, which is hard to do during class, as well. I guess I'll talk about that later....

As for taking anything seriously, you'll never have to worry about that with me...Been on the internet long enough to handle anything you can throw at me.
