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.

-SoulRiser

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...

What have you guys been up to? I haven't posted on here for ages, I was a bit busy with (you guessed it) school stuff.

RE: So...

Hi Smile
So nobody has tried to commit suicide lately?
And why is everyone talking about weed so much, just curious.

RE: So...

There have been claims of suicide by some members. Some of whom said they lied, others who returned, one who hasn't returned but who knows.


People like weed I guess.. school makes you just want to chill and not deal with all the bullshit (albeit 1st world problems).

I have never tried weed but I would try a hash brownie.

RE: So...

Oh, okay then. Thankfully, nobody I know has tried any drugs, and I don't think they will, thanks to the emphasis of how bad drugs are in PDHPE lessons. I know most people are definitely going to try alcohol though.
And by all the claims of suicide, I'm guessing school hasn't got any better for anyone?

Hey Tun, long time no see.

Just kidding, I even thought you were a newfag that didn't know there is a welcome part, lol.

So, yeah, there was a major shitstorm (zagix) and a minor one (bulgvar when he was a troll).
Right now, it is weed and other stuff.

RE: So...

@alexander: I'm actually a girl XD Anyway, I thought it would be rude to just pop up after a year or so and just start posting again.
@SoulRiser: I love minecraft! I just got it on my school laptop. (I'll probably be in big trouble if the head teachers find out, but oh well.)
@The: Judging by your posts, yes I think people are talking about it because of you.
@HeartofShadows: I don't blame you for not remembering. I haven't been on her for a long time....

I recognize your avatar! And yes every other thread is about weed.

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: So...

@manicrose: And I recognize you from the link in your siggy to that book you wrote Smile It's too bad I don't really have the patience to work on the novel that I started, though.
I just realized, I haven't changed my avatar since I fist joined XD (Although, I probably should.)
And I don't find those threads very interesting, since I don't smoke weed.
@derchin: I guess it depends on what you want to do, if you want to become an artist or a writer you don't have to, but if you want to be a scientist or something you do.

RE: So...

Ok, so i have one recent one about the dealer getting busted, then elfy mentioned in one thread but the thread wasnt actually about it. Zagix asked me a question about weed, that one thread about the roommates talks about weed. Aya's post about me was about weed, this thread will probably turn into one,

Huh, now that i add em up i realize there has
been lots of weed around here. Im gonna help out and stop posting about weed. WHOS WITH ME!?

The truth isn't always nice. Tundra, feel free to come back after a while and just start posting, nobody's going to notice you were gone with your post count. It would be the same with me and I have way more posts then you.
