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.

Intro and a cool little storie

im new to this forum and it may be a suprise to u to know i am 12 obviously im not going to reveal to much but i love skateboarding and i hate school though i am currently injured and dying inside little by little even though im a almost back on the board but anyways i hate school as much as the next person and im in a shit load of trouble. so basically i snuck out of some gay ass dance and now the principles on my ass about if i smoked pot and shit like that and ya know what sucks the other 4 people who came with me had completely different stories than mine. but the thing is i dont regret it I had fun. so bassically i had to play the " im so sorry card" to avoid suspension. IF ANYONE WANTS TO SEE A NEW SKATE EDIT OF MINE HERES THE LINK ----------> fml it shows my name Goingcrazy[/YouTube]

Nice video! Biggrin I watched like half of it Wink
However, I don't whether you want people to actually know you're here? You got that video with your name, yourself, and all those skills Razz
Sometimes giving in to fun is better than always giving in to school.
Just don't smoke pot...yet...

RE: Intro and a cool little storie

this is one of the biggest reasons i hate people...they boast about doing illegal things like it's a good thing...tell it in a PM to people that aren't me bc it seriously pisses me off.

Welcome anyways.

Favorite actor?

"free speech under the constitution only guarantees the government won't stop him saying it and does not guarantee his right to say things and have no consequences at all as a result. also i completely doubt that he is motivated solely by "i'm saying it because i can" and is probably motivated by a more shitheady motive like "i think it's funny to annoy people and Rustle Le Jimmies™ and is just hiding behind the first amendment to try to deflect any consequences or make you realize that being allowed to annoy people is a superior moral right. you can still disdain someone for doing things for dumbarse wankery purposes and you have evne more right to ban and insult them for it" ~Trar's friend about Potato.

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.

RE: Intro and a cool little storie

Welcome. I really dont think you should smoke pot at 12. Although where I live, its common yo start at 7 (saw my mom selling some to a 7 year old) I highly dont reccommend. They get addicted and are dumpin money into the pockets of dealers like my mom. Most people who live here (highland park in detroit, mi, google it, its a shitty place) got here by spending all their money on pot, crack, ect. And NOBODY wants to live here. My building got burned down on devils night (detroit halloween fires) and my lunatic mom escaped from jail, tied me to the bed and then the building burned. I survived, but barely (details under school talk and venting in thread I fuckin hate detroit) and am niw in a homeless shelter with nobody but my guinea pig (dad dies when I was 5) and hopeing the second team of cops sent out (20 of them) dont chicken out. I have no family here whatsoever, have lived alone since mom was jailed for abuseing me. I am 14, so I cant even get a job, but I do get some food stamps. But you dont want a life like mine for your future kid. The first grouo said she had a bigass double barrel gun with at lewst 20 shot capacity before it needs more bullets. You do NOT want to live where idiots like thst roam free. DO NOT DO POT! But welcome anyways.
