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.

The time I got caught was when my mom saw it, but only thought and said stereotypes about us and school and didn't even bother looking into this site. Noo So what about you?GoingcrazyNutterCuckooFu

Congratulations humanity,because you refuse to let go of the old and evolve you actually make people believe in 2012. Not only that, but you're the only species on Earth that were able to make it possible, now we get to sit until we die because we couldn't get to Mars. We have failed as a society and don't deserve our gifts to survive for this long. Maybe this is why dinosaurs are extinct, we sure aren't any better than the dirt you say we're created from. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pla...DvwSOFto#! Noo

A site like this saying school is good for you? Parents can truly be lazy when the internet is involved.

Oh lol, are you guys that paranoid?

I've never been "caught" here by anyone. The people living with me probably won't give a single fuck about it.

RE: If you did,when did you get caught here?

Never been caught. But my "mom" is in jail. But I wasnt caught before she was in jail. If I was, I would be in deep shit. As a precaution, I hid my ipod, she never even knew about it, I used proxies, cleared history, only posted at night. But she is now in jail, so I can post during the day!

RE: If you did,when did you get caught here?

Years ago I was caught by a girl I was briefly dating. She was the type of person who could not imagine why anyone could dislike school....clever and pretty, worked hard to get her good grades...she couldn't fathom how high school could be upsetting to anyone. It drew a gap between us, I tried to explain that I had a passion for learning that didn't fit into curriculum and busywork...

Some people find it hard to believe I received horrible grades in my high school english classes. Why should I have to write an essay about how Animal Farm (obviously) related to socialism...when I'm more interested in the way Clover could be so self deprecating in her correct assumptions of the pig's treason.

I got off track...yea SS isn't for everyone.

Life is linked to an addiction to dihydrogen monoxide - overdose can be fatal, underdose can be fatal, unorthodox methods of consumption can be fatal, and if you take it you're destined to die.

It's funny that we're calling it a system. It has all of the disadvantages and none of the advantages of an organized structure.
