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.

To tell you the truth, I am actually not all that psyched for getting a job

When I grow up, I want to be a movie director. However, I would rather explore the world. I would rather go away from home to explore every part of the world. I'm not talking about hotels! No, I'm talking about just going out alone without any influences. I know that there are predators out there and shit, but if I had defense, I would be fine. I just want to explore the world I live in before I die and go to Heaven (which might not give me the chance to explore my world).

RE: To tell you the truth, I am actually not all that psyched for getting a job

the best thing about wanting to do that is that you don't really need a job, whenever you're at a place then just clean dishes or something for like a week for some restaruant...after that save your money and continue exploring...you might want to keep a phone on you though if you want to keep in touch with friends that you make along the way

The less you try to control things, the less you need to.

You know there is a word for that, its called being a drifter. Or according to others a bum or vagrant.

I have always loved animals, and would want to meet (not literally) all of my favorite animals and their habitats in the wild.

RE: To tell you the truth, I am actually not all that psyched for getting a job

the only thing i hate about getting a real job where you get told what to do by the person standing right next to you is that it's so damn hard to get your first job at one of those places...the last and first job i had was detassling corn, and that was the summer before 8th grade...and i'm a senior in high school now so it's not really a relevant reference especially considering i gurantee they don't remember me ever working there. My local bowling alley has said that they still need birthday attendants, and most of the people know me there and only one lady hates me as far as i know, and so i applied because then i could work with friends instead of "potential new friends" and i have yet to hear back from then (i applied like 2 weeks ago today so it's not gonna happen).

So the day that it is made easier to get your first job, I will be more than happy to get one of those things that the government wants me to get so that i can help pay off our deficit that we got from buying all those weapons from China...until then, mooch off parents for gas money and charge friends with jobs or hot girls money to ride ("money" for women tho bc i'm just that nice) and hopefully eventually, go help people make new friends then shoot them in the U.S. ARMY.

The less you try to control things, the less you need to.

RE: To tell you the truth, I am actually not all that psyched for getting a job

When I am an adult, I dont think I want a job. I hate being told what to do. I would like to own a buisiness. Fat chance that will happen, but hey, I can dream. Since that will never happen, I would like a job with animals.
