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.

Rainbow Hi! ^-^

I'm Vexxy, because I vex people, hopefully I won't annoy people on here too much though... (^_^; )

But yeah, that's me! Hopefully I can be a good member of the community, and it's nice to meet you all!

Hi! ^-^

You are vexing me already. Or maybe it's just the lion gnawing on my leg.

RE: Hi! ^-^

I tend to gravitate towards those who vex the general population of homo sapiens so I think that we'll get along great.

What's your straight jacket size?

Favorite pre-2000 released video game?

Favorite anime?

Favorite porn genre?

I like retro stuff, but most of my favourites are from around ~2004... Scratchchin I guess I did put a lot of time in Pokémon Blue...

Lucky Star's pretty high up, but I do like Serial Experiments Lain, haven't finished it yet though.

Ahh Serial Experiments Lain is one of my favorites. If you get the time, I highly recommend that you check out Paranoia Agent. I think you'll love it because it can be quite vexing. I wanted my Psychology class teacher to play an episode last year and then we could psychoanalyze it but he wouldn't agree to it haha. You should also watch Cat Soup some time. There's full eps of Paranoia Agent on YT. As for Cat Soup you can view the entire short here. Enjoy your mindfucks. Smile

Hi! ^-^

Welcome to School Survival! I hope some of our members aren't too immature. We usually come here to vent, but I'm in the works of working on a YouTube video to talk about public school and how to combat it. I'm tired of sulking around it like a victim. Smile

I couldn't choose just one... ^-^; My favourite movies are things like Fight Club, Donnie Darko, Looper, Yes Man, Moon, Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, Kick-Ass, Scott Pilgrim, etc. I like psychological thingies, but most other stuff too. Except for stuff that's just action. I get bored quickly. Razz

Err... Dunno. Shrug I guess Leonardo DiCaprio, Jim Carrey, Simon Pegg and Sam Rockwell are some of my faves. Biggrin Tom Cruise in Vanilla Sky *drool*
