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.

What a great vacation I'm having

My ear bleeds, I left school early and I failed at 3 subjects this year, if you want the short version.

The long version, I had a ear surgery on November 23rd (reason was to take care of a internal infection or something like it) and I felt like crap the days later.

I went to school a week later and found out, suprise, suprise, I failed at 3 subjects! ( Math, Geometry and Science). Hooray!

Since I have medical leave, I can do whatever assingments I have to do so I don't spend 1 extra year with my shitty Math and Geometry teacher.

The good thing, I will travel to Natal on January.

So, just take care of the assingments, and your life is complete!

If it wasn't for damn Skyrim eating my time. And internet. And sleep at 4 am.

I know that feel bro. Doing a whole bunch of papers last minute. It's finals week so I've been writing like a madman trying to catch up with all the work I didn't do.
