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: Hello! I don't bite!

I do bite, figuratively and literally. But no need to worry about that possibly.

I welcome thee with a flourishing bow.

Hello! I don't bite!

For fun, I like to read, watch YouTube, go on Tumblr, and swim if it's summer.

Hello! I don't bite!

Hypothermia is pretty fun. You should try it.

Hmm... If you're up to experimenting, perhaps when the water in your pool is frozen, you could mess around with it somehow. If you can't find anything to do with it, you could go outside with a sledgehammer, or something, and smash the ice when you're angry, if all else fails. Shrug

I often forget about the existence of the thanks button on these forums...

If my writing happens to be too sporadic, too brief, or missing information, call me out on it.

If you absolutely had to pick between getting hypothermia, third degree burns on 10% of your body, and lung collapse which would you pick?

That sounds like a lot of fun. But my pool doesn't freeze over, it just turns green and gets frogs in it...

Luckily, mines out for summer. But it's pretty bad. We have uniforms, and we get detention for forgetting our ID or belt. Plus it has VERY long hours!
