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.

"Physical Education", or "Lullaby lessons"

Most of you have PE, I assume. It's basically sports. But it fails with disgrace.

See, I've had enough PE in school, but it never was real training. I've learned what "real training" means from my brother - who is currently my coach (convenient!).
I threw up in the first session. My overall condition is fucking bad when it comes to sport. And that while I still do the shit I am supposed to in PE.

Instead of encouraging people to do sports, PE is boring, a waste of time, and ineffective. It's not the "I don't like to do sports at this time" stuff, no, it's how it is not effective at all. 10 times situps and shit, sometimes. Mostly some weird games that have more rules than queuing in Britain. A bit sweat, but else nothing.
And you can't do what you'd like to. Like real training. It would be a convenient use of time. But no, I have to play silly games.

Conclusion: PE in school is useless and the coaches there a useless.
Vent over.

RE: "Physical Education", or "Lullaby lessons"

PE is pretty shitty but it's my main form of exercise anyway
And it's the only place where I can train basketball nearby
But coaches are shit and they are like 'ZOMG YOU CAN'T DO TAHH? YO NOT WORKING TO TEH EXERCISEH? SHAMEH ON YOU!!!!!!!!"

I'd enjoy it too - if I could train. But I can't. Well, I'll look forward to improving that situation to the next two months.

P.E wasn't bad in my school. They put alot of attention to swim technique, weight lifting and proper cadio. We even had meditation.

RE: "Physical Education", or "Lullaby lessons"

P.E. is basically the only class of any use to kids. If it teaches them to exercise on their own outside of school then it's doing something good.

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: "Physical Education", or "Lullaby lessons"

^ true dat

Most useful thing I ever learned in school other than how to write a resume was this tidbit from my gym teacher;

"Look in the mirror. If you don't like what you see there are two places to immediately improve: The gym, and the library."

I've lived by those words ever since.

We hardly can get anything done in P.E since everyone talks all the time and can never stop playing around. Well I can't really get too pissed since my school made them like that.

All my P.E. teachers were jerks yet I still loved doing the physical activity.

RE: "Physical Education", or "Lullaby lessons"

I don't like P.E because I simply suck at sports. I don't mind exercising, it's just that I'm good at only two sports and the time we're not doing them, I'm either being yelled at for not doing anything right or I'm torturing myself because of how I suck.

Because all I can do is run after the ball and try not to kick/throw the ball at some random player from the other team.

At least this year I got better at volleyball and badminton and my new class seems nicer than my older one.

Not to go all serious in a venting thread but it's obvious some of us will like it and some won't. School enforces stuff through coercion so (rarely) it will go well and (often) they will mess up. I think the moral of the story is not to let pedagogues manage your physical health. Keklolz.

No I liked it too. I was a traitor to all the other fatasses in my school. I even took an extra credit gym class my senior year for the hell of it.

I'm actually really good at basketball. I'm a strong point guard and my free throw percentage is around 2/3rds, and I don't even practice on a daily basis.

RE: "Physical Education", or "Lullaby lessons"

I LOVED P.E.

Partially because we actually got to play physical games, since our teacher is the wrestling coach and didn't give a fuck.

I sucked at human tug-of-war though (How the HELL does someone who's 6'0" and 190 pounds suck at a game like that, I don't know) lmao.

We also played floor hockey with checking, which was always my favorite. I usually got 8-11 goals a game.

RE: "Physical Education", or "Lullaby lessons"

There are some good games in P.E. Rugby as example. I am one of the tallest, but still massive players, so I usually run through like a tank.
But still, some games I just can't stand.

PE was eh fine. Sports are boring. I used to just go and run for the hell of it, I find that a bit more enjoyable. Just running and listening to music is way more fun than playing a competitive sport to me. Weight lifting and shit... I never really got much into it. Too apathetic/lazy/etc.

PE is good for me, but all the out of shape kids hate it cuz the teachers yell at them. Sometimes, they use the out of shape kids as examples of what not to do and all the kids and the teachers laugh at them when they mess up on something. Im sure this just gives them eating disorders
