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.

Re: Ever had a court date?

Get a kick ass lawyer like I had when I was being charged with assault on an officer. Other than that be distrustful if the prosecutor offers a plea bargain. If you're offered a fat one it may be because they lack ample evidence to convict you in court. If you know for sure that you are screwed and you're offered a nice plea bargain though take it.

Your court date tomorrow, is it a preliminary hearing, or a trial? What are the charges?

Who am I? Who are YOU?

Nothing like what your talking about. Although that is some good advice, I watch a lot of Law and Order so I think I'm covered in that area. Laugh out Loud. I think I'm being charged with Truancy. Which isn't as bad as it could be I'm just nervous about it.

Our vice principles dad was apparently some serial rapist who kept girls in his basement (I kid you not), so that may work.

Leave it to women to take that post seriously. I don't care what your profession is, no one deserves false rape accusations and an investigation. bitch move. bitch. move.

In all honesty, I'm not in a "give a fuck" mood right now. Maybe he shouldn't be bawwing over truancy.

and using that same logic, they could accuse you of dealing drugs on school grounds and say "well maybe you shouldn't have ditched school bitch"
sure, they would find nothing, but you would be investigated, all your stuff rifled through, and your life would be hell for the next few months. now imagine all that, except you have a wife who leaves you because of it and kids who no longer trust you.

I cant believe i have to explain this to YOU of all people Crayola...

I seriously doubt anyone here was serious about doing that. Not only would it be wrong, but it would get your ass in trouble just for saying it.

Re: Ever had a court date?

Wait, what's the worst they can do to you for being truant? Throw you in jail? Fine you? That's a little harsh for simply not attending classes.

As for advice, I can tell you what my friend who was in a similar situation did: don't talk unless you have to, don't sign anything, and don't lose your calm. Don't admit to anything right away.

Lets see they could throw me in jail, my mother in jail, yea fine me, make me go back to school, probably force me into some kind of therapy, and I'll get an asshole Parole Officer to. But yeah whatever, I'll accept the consequences. So if they try to get me to sign something I can just refuse?

Its actually kind of funny because when I went in for this meeting they drug tested me, and I swear when I passed they looked annoyed. So it shouldn't be to hard tomorrow since they don't have a clue why I'm doing it.

Re: Ever had a court date?

Be like "There was a death in the family." Someone I know literally cut out an obituary from the paper (we need proof a relative died, damn bastards) and pretended that that was a relative. Shit was lulzy as fuck. She apparently confessed out of grief. A teacher asked how she was feeling or something. It was lulzy, since the teacher was cool about it. She even started cracking up.
