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.

Hey guys, raging monster here.

Hey guys.

I'm a 25, soon to be 26 year old. I was a mechanical drafter for 4 year, and decide to go back to school and pursue in the just recently declared major in animation. I was gone to school on/off when i was working. Now i'm no longer working and been in community college for close to 2 years. (more like 1.2 year compared normal students).

Now i'm struggling to get by. I'm trying to be more organized. Procrastination is mega huge on me, i'm trying to break from it. I'm also a raging monster. I find many things cynical and rage about things that effects me personally (not general). Because of my horrible experiences growing up and even today, I have an intimating voice. I get mad at things on how "normal" other people do shit, when compared to myself. There are other reasons to why i'm a raging monster, I won't go into detail. I don't express them for no reason, so rest assured, all strangers are at peace.

Now I need to learn how to adapt and survive school. I will not be a dropout.

And hello.

As you may have noticed, sanity is not required to operate these forums (unlike most equipment).

Blue or black. Songs, Mostly rock songs like sum41 Pieces, there's is no solution, the hell song.

Oh BTW I also collect weapons. I own 3 swords, few knives, and throwers. Also I when I was working, me and the boss have a pair of riffles, and AK47 In our office second floor with balcony. At least we left it there until SWAT came one day with a warning...

Hey guys, raging monster here.

Welcome!

I'm the offspring of Satan and a Dalek. If anyone is a raging monster, it's me.

Also, if you haven't left your sanity at the door yet, can I borrow it? I need to run a few more experiments to finalize my theory of perpetual motion.

Hello, traveler.

This is an ancient account I have not used in a long time. My views have changed much in the intervening months and years.

Nonetheless, I refuse to clean it up. Pretending that I've held my current views since the beginning of time is what we in the industry call a lie. Asking people to do so contributes to moralistic self-loathing. "See, those people have nothing damning! I do! I'm truly vile!"

Because you can never be a good person with a single blemish on the moral record, I thought that simply entertaining some thoughts made me irredeemable. Though I don't care for his writing style, William Faulkner presents a good counterexample. He went from being a typical Southern racist to supporting the civil rights movement. These days we'd yell at him for that, probably.

People are allowed to change their views.

Nevertheless, this period of my life has informed some of how I am today. In good ways and bad ways. To purge it would be to do a disservice to history. Perhaps it will not make anyone sympathetic, but it may help someone understand.

If, after reading all this, you still decide to use the post above as evidence that I am evil today, ask yourself if you have never disagreed with the moral code you now follow. In all likelihood you did, at some point. If some questions are verboten, and the answer is "how dare you ask that," don't expect your ideological opponents to ever change their minds.

I took some CAD classes in high school. I never really had a knack for it.
