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.

Fish Dreams


I was in a shopping plaza thing that had stone floor except there was no parking lot and there was a gazebo. It was night time. I saw these people who I knew and then said hi. I was being awkward for some reason. Then I left but the girl came running after me and gave me a jar of her tears. Then I left.

The next dream I was in some type of school. It was two stories and there was a line on the stairs. Some people I've never meant were there with someone I knew. I walked up to them and they people I didn't know were mad at me. And then I made out with this crush I used to have. Thats all I remember.

The first one was kind of random, that plaza was beautiful though.

The second dream made me feel forever alone.

RE: Fish Dreams

Reminds me of how I used to have recurring dreams of shopping centres, especially the cinemas in them. When I went to the cinema for the first time in years last year they stopped. I don't understand what it was trying to say. The other one reminds me of that time I used to dream of a Canadian with dyed red hair and blue eyes who was very affectionate towards me, and nursed me in a cabin. WHY MUST I AWAKEN FROM IT ARRRRRRRGH and in another I had sex with her in the waiting room of a railway station.

RE: Fish Dreams

I recently had a dream where a duck attacked my baby brother and I saved him by snapping it's neck. I've been thinking about it all day. Kinda weirded out about it...

"There's no 'I' in 'Team'." Yeah, but there is a "me" in "Team" spelled backwards!

RE: Fish Dreams

I was in this Matrix-esque theme park place. It might have been in Disney world because I saw a Donald Duck cartoon in the theater at this place. It was really cool. The hallways were like an ariport, but it was dark inside. The floors and wall were all like dark grey metal and tile. There also seemed to be like technology like stuff like booths like with like technology like.
