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.

RE: Are you strong enough to Rise Up And Give It All?

I hate to be "that guy" but what do you expect ? Most of us are dying, most of us are suffering. Don't ask us to stand up, show some effort yourself, stand up yourself, spread the word, keep fighting, don't expect anyone else to do it for you. Now about moral support. Enjoy the little shit in life, it is the least you can do. Take up a hobby in whatever free time you have, spend more time with friends, do some fun shit. Since you, like most of us here, are forced to school, try doing some fun shit in there, pranks and stuff, also it is a great place to mess around with friends, you just need some people that you can trust. Good luck!

How would you know? Perhaps he's already dead and his spirit just decided to type his last words...

Wait, never mind.

Nope. He's right, you aren't dying.

Well, technically we're all dying.

Anyway, BlondeBlueEyes, I'm going to assume that you've just recently begun Middle School. Middle School is a difficult time, people are just starting puberty and their hormones are all screwed up, people start to become real douchebags, etc. My advice to you is to just ride it out a few months/years and wait until you're a little more rational about the subject.

If you absolutely muuuuussssttt start now, however, don't do anything crazy like skipping school/classes. Research alternatives and attempt to get out of public school if your parents will allow you. Do small acts of rebellion but don't let it get out of hand

Hope this helped, and I also hope you don't take any offense from it.

RIP GORE GOROTH
RIP SAINTVICIOUS

If you are dying, you're old enough that these things are not directly an issue for you anymore. :>
If they are, you're not yet dying.

What if he decided to finish his schooling after turning 90?

Then we've got a blonde blue-eyed fringe case on the loose.

Do you want to fight the school system (probably a lost cause), or help people get out of it and get a better education elsewhere (might actually be worthwhile)?
