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.

best moment in skoo i've had in a while

OK, so there i was, lined up with pretty much everybody else waiting for the bell to ring so that i could leave my themes in literature class (required by the way) when there are 2 mexicans (the kind that are still fairly new to America, but they can speak English just fine) that think they're badass and a redneck. Let it go on record right now that I really don't care for any of the three, but this was too good of an opportunity to pass up.

Redneck's name will be A
1st mexican is W
2nd mexican is B

So W was messing with A and i ignore it because it happens so much, but then W's friend B stands up from leaning on the desk and says "we'll both kick your ass" (prolly a paraphrase, i don't remember) and i give him a second to finish what he's saying before jumping in and saying "those are pussy odds." W then notices me there and asks me what I said, usually right about here is where i act like they heard me perfectly, but for some reason that didin't process in my brain this time, so I tell him again "2v1 is pussy odds" and now W is pretty pissed, but only because he's probably feeling intimidated by a skinny ass white kid who's half his size. At this point, B backed off and moved closer to the door to let W handle this, which i didn't really think anything about, but it felt good to actually scare a kid off just by talking to his friend. W and I proceeded to argue a bit back and forth for like 30 seconds before he said those all important words "you wanna go?" and I, always being the smart person that doesn't want to get in trouble at skool for fighting, especially not anymore, just look at him and say "sure, *wait about 2 seconds* but not in skool." so W stands there a little taken aback because either I want to fight him, and i'm nowhere near able to beat him in a boxing match where we follow all the official rules, or the fact that i don't want to fight at school. So I tell him we can fight at my house, he said something that I don't remember and then throws the bottle he was holding into the recycle bin in that "badass" *hold bottle cap between 2 fingers and sort of slam bottle into bin* move and then walks away. Then A, my friend, and I are just standing there occasionally looking at eachother like "wtf just happened?" and A even said to me "that shit was fucked," which i honestly have no idea what that means whenever i hear it until a few seconds later when i realize that whoever says it didn't say "up".

So all in all, that was the most fun I've had in skool in a long time...although, I honestly hope that i don't get beat up tomorrow during skool because then I'll have to go and talk to Mr. Roop again and that is never any fun because he looks weird and kind of talks down to you...maybe next time I realize he's talking down to me I'll steal a line from the movie "Kids in America" and say "My name is Jason Webster and i don't appreciate being talked down to."

Thanks for the diploma… can I have my childhood back?

I’d love to have a battle of wits with you… but I hate to fight the unarmed.
