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.

Weird dreams from my childhood

When I was a kid I had some weird dreams.

One of them was an escalator. It was in some sort of mall with neon signs and doors. People would go up the escalator and since it ended in the middle of the air, they would fall down. Then they would get up, go up and fall down, again and again.
I never understood this dream and I already had it more than once. In fact, some of the dreams that involved me being in a high place would eventually show me falling down.

Another dream (and perhaps the weirdest one) was me in a deserted mall in ruins. I had to fight some weird monster to free my friends and to win I had to dance and sing...

The next time you don't knock on my room door before entering... I'll probably write a rant in my journal.

RE: Weird dreams from my childhood

Why does everyone have weird dreams and I do not?

Only weird dream I ever rememeber when I was 6, some black hole appeared out of nowhere and I saw a Yu Gi Oh card. Maybe because the back of the Yu Gi Oh cards looks like a black hole?

RE: Weird dreams from my childhood

I asked my friend where she had gotten her coat and she told me it was from some designer I'd never heard of and cost $250,000 and showed me the tag as proof. Then I decided to sew my own coat and I sewed it out of leaves and grass, but I used it as a quilt instead because it was warm. Eventually I came to school wrapped in it and everyone thought I was a queen.

Go to work. Send your kids to school. Follow fashion. Act normal. Walk on the pavement. Watch TV. Save for your old age. Obey the law. Repeat after me: "I am free."

RE: Weird dreams from my childhood

I dreamt that I was in a dark room, with only the vertexes and points illuminated by some strange phosphorescent material. As I started walking, dark shapes similar to that of the flukes of whales and aspens started to rise from the black medium, indifferent to the warm materials of carbon, being made of a smooth and metallic mixture. Then, my center of gravity was reversed, and I fell into the brightening sky. An expanse of burning stars rose above me, and I fell into a nation-sized hole into the recesses of the ocean. Somehow being able to breathe underwater without gills, I swam through the relics of Paris, Vienna, Manchester, and Berlin, and came across a glowing pack of humanoids. Bellowing white noise, their faces became distorted, and then I was pulled from the dream.

If you're reading this, I killed myself.

RE: Weird dreams from my childhood

I've already posted my 'walking through the grey city and seeing the humanoid shapes' dream right?
