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.

Create something special.
-..-
What...?
Something new, something besides ordinary.
To yourself prove that school is and never will be necessary for success, nor for a happy life.
I understand some of the shit that some of you experience will brake or smash you down to your knees.
Make a website, invent something, write a book, take photos and sell them in stock websites (shutterstock.com, fotolia.com etc), become viral with your creation. Whatever you like.
Sharpen your lazy delusive brain and stop fucking with the school problems. If someone doesn't understand you, stop caring, the majority doesn't understand, nor will they understand till someone proves them wrong.

Grades, get them, keep them normal, my suggestion only.

SoulRiser is a good example, be active on this website, but don't look for silver plate served answers from here nor from school or the society. There is only one way to change what we are requesting for.

We must prevail, but not through anarchism or through protesting.
I don't want to fuck with people and contradict others until they start listening, I've been doing that for some while and it only strains me.

Find something which will move you away from the place you hate.
Internet is your possibly and mine definitely best friend for sure.
I wish people luck here.
Good luck Hug

I'm tired of being on my knees, my smn't is there, now I only continue.

THIS MAY KEEP YOU FOCUSED:

+1?Good to know Aggie, I feel like the forum is floating towards becoming some sort of anarchistic/depressive website, not that people shouldn't post troubles their having, but they need to remember that society is not very good, and has a lot place for improvement. The fact that I've been to school for 10 years, doesn't only make the sad and tear driving, but it also makes me want to accomplish something even more. Anyway I Felt I needed to get people remember some of the more important things.

Thanks for this thread, I think this is a step in the right direction. Smile

Basically, just do whatever you need to do, to remain true to yourself, and express yourself in whichever way you enjoy the most.

These forums aren't anarchistic anymore, just a ranting and depression forum.

Congratulations humanity,because you refuse to let go of the old and evolve you actually make people believe in 2012. Not only that, but you're the only species on Earth that were able to make it possible, now we get to sit until we die because we couldn't get to Mars. We have failed as a society and don't deserve our gifts to survive for this long. Maybe this is why dinosaurs are extinct, we sure aren't any better than the dirt you say we're created from. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pla...DvwSOFto#! Noo

^ If Soul had her way, the forums would ALWAYS be about ranting and depression.

I, personally, prefer that to all of this talk of anarchy.

IDC. This is only a recommendation, not a statement. SoulRiser's fault or not, doesn't matter. You must do something to leave this school for good.
I know I have to.

No idea. Maybe it's spambots accidentallly rating things while they're trying to post.
