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.

Lol, I should've known. I'm really gullible as SS will learn soon. I'm just a trusting and friendly person. One of my friends once convinced me she was pregnant. I totally freaked out

"Who's the dad?" I asked
"That guy," she said pointing to some random dude in the mall.

Lol, I just thought Satanists wouldn't he uncommon on a site such as this.

Russia was good, I loved it. I miss living there. The school system is horrific though, worse than here in the U.S.

RE: Hey, new here

Only 2 guns I own personally are a Winchester Model 12 shotgun given to me by my dad and an M1911, It was my grandpa's in WWII and he gave it to me. Shotgun isn't much. It's fun to shoot but the 1911 is my baby. When I turn 21 I'm getting a concealed carry permit for it.

RE: Hey, new here

I'm not much interested in cars (unless we're talking fuel efficiency), punk music, or weed. I also don't care too much for guns, although I expect to own some when I'm older.

I do, however, like science fiction, economics, and classic rock.

@Sharpie Where in the US do you live now? How is the US different from Russia? What keeps you from going back to Russia?
@Thought Criminal I want an M1911. Right now I have
.308 lever-action rifle. My go-to for hunting.
12-Gauge Remington 870 with an 18" barrel. Loaded with 00 Buckshot is for anyone who robs my apartment
.45 Springfield 1911. For the hell of it
9mm Glock 19. This is what I will concealed carry when I'm old enough
AR-15. My dad's. It was my favorite gun as a little girl. He gave it to me for my 18th birthday.
Ruger 10/22. My go-to for varmint hunting.
@Wes We can still be friends, right?

Hell yeah. My dad's got way more than I do. A fucking arsenal. I'm not sure what all he has, I know he's got a 1911 of his own, a WWII K98 Mauser it's got the Nazi Eagle on it and everything, a .308 semi something not sure what brand, couple of shotguns double-barrel break action and something similar to my model 12, bunch of pistols, Semi .22 marlin. I know he's got a bunch of other stuff I haven't seen though, keeps it locked up in this big ass safe.

My dad's the same way. He's got a Class 3 license too. He knew someone who works in the "gun license" department who could get him a discount. My dad has a freaking M16! And a ton of swords.

Yeah. I love his swords. They're like the cornerstone of his arsenal. He taught me how to use them, and while I'm no master, I'm still learning. I take Kali and Silat too which are martial arts that focus a lot on weaponry. Especially Kali. I need a sword :(

I live in Michigan now. I fucking hate Michigan, only good thing here is the cold winter & snow. I plan to move to Dallas when I graduate highschool.

The cultures are way different. Russia is a bit.. odd when compared to the U.S. People there value helping others more than here in the U.S.
A lot of people I knew in Russia weren't afraid to try new things or do dumb shit for fun. Most people there also don't give a shit about very much. Maybe it was just the people I knew, I dunno. My parents and age keep me from going back, I'm not 18 yet so I can't really make my own decisions.

RE: Hey, new here

@Betty I'm into pretty much any punk that isn't pop (no Green Day or The Offspring allowed) and I listen to crust and metal. You know, you can go to a shooting range and rent yourself a .22 revolver to shoot. I reccomended that first cuz of it's low recoil. Then rent a .45 1911 when you can handle/get bored of that.
@Sharpie Oh... Well, hope you do good after graduation Smile
@Efs Why does everyone say that?

*sis fist* hieeeeng although I'm not even female myself.

I remember when I went to a public-ish free shooting range where everyone brought what they had, we decided to bring our pellet guns. Oh fuck it was hilariously embarrassing. We couldn't even feel our guns shoot and everything around us was assploding... and the smell of gunpowder... I couldn't hear or feel, or see SHIT from the air rifles, although when we looked at the targets we did see puny markings from the pellets. I once didn't have my earplugs put, some guy fired an AR-15 like carbine thing next to me and I heard BEEEEEEEP. I can't imagine what it would be if it was a .50 BMG or something. I actually got a .50 BMG keyring (yeah it's fucking huge) from an aviation museum.

RE: Hey, new here

Lol, you might have to rent a private room next time. One time I took an EXTREMELY girly friend of mine to the shooting range, we rented a .22 revolver, and there was this overweight trucker/biker unloading 16 gauge slugs into the targets. He was smoking a cigar too, and the smell of the burning tobacco was stronger than the gunpowder. His voice and laughter was louder than his gun. He kept talking to himself like a crazy person. We had to leave and she still has never shot a gun.
