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.

Sleeping pattern

This is the second time in a week I stayed up until 5:30 AM. Tried to sleep but couldn't. Can someone tell me how the hell I can fix my sleeping pattern?

RE: Sleeping pattern

I've tried twice now to just stay up all day and go to bed at the right time but I always end up taking a massive nap around 4PM to mess it up.

RE: Sleeping pattern

The "right" time?
I used to stay up all night then go to bed and wake up and go to charter at 6PM.
But you have normal school tomorrow right? I'm off because of flooding.

No, this is Patrick.

Let me rephrase "right"... A desired time to be able to wake up in the morning at all.

Yes, but I want to be able to go to sleep at a PM time so I can wake up at an AM time... My sleep pattern prohibits that haha

RE: Sleeping pattern

SLOWLY start going to bed earlier.
Like:
Day 1: 5.30
Day 2: 5.00
Day 3: 4.30
Day 4: 4.00
Day 5: 3.00
Day 6: 1.00
Day 7: 1.00
Day 8: 12.30

etc.
Or just do lots of physical activity in the day to get you tired.

Won't weed just get him high and the munchies and cause him to eat foods which will fuel his energy even more?

I don't get munchies anymore. But they give weed to insomniacs cuz it makes them tired. Wait until 2 hours before you go to bed, and make sure you exercise and the like.

What I usually do is stay up all day and go sleep in the early evening. By then I'll be dead tired and pass out easily. My sleeping pattern cycles around quite a lot.

Yeah I've tried that twice before (as I mentioned) and ended up taking a long ass nap mid-day.

RE: Sleeping pattern

1) Go in bed with comfortable pyjamas
2) Turn off everything in your room, including lights, TV, computer and so on
3) If you need to, put on the window shadows if the street lights near your home are bright
4) Count from 100 to 1 backwards with closed eyes
5) You'll feel sleepy near 30
6) You'll be ZZZZZzzZZZ after you finish the counting
7) Skip out any caffeine drinks
8) WIN and love me.
