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.

Spanish help...please

I normally don't give a fuck about Spanish, but I have an F right now and apparently an after school detention if I don't do this shitty homework by Wednesday.

I need to write two paragraphs, one about breakfast, and one about lunch. I need to include 10 different foods and drinks in these paragraphs.
I need to include "expressions of frequency" (for example: always, sometimes, never)
And it needs to be at least 10 sentences.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

RE: Spanish help...please

A few (possibly broken) examples:

En el desayuno prefiero comer huevos con las papas. En generalmente bebo el jugo de naranja, pero a veces prefiero leche. Siempre cocino comidas que son buenas para la salud. Nunca como jamón.

Do similar shit, but for almuerzo instead.

Not exactly quantum mechanics. What has SS come to?

Well I'm sorry but I'm really stupid and even if I attempted to try I would have found a way to fuck it up anyway, no matter how simple it might have been.

Anyway thanks.

Always = siempre (almost always = casi siempre)
Sometimes = a veces
Never = nunca (finally, almost never = casi nunca)

Common knowledge, really, but you never know when it might come in handy.
