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.

-SoulRiser

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.

Music Hello!

Hi, I'm new here!

There is a certain person in this world who I owe my sanity to.

We were reunited recently.

Thank you, God.

Hello!

What kind of music do you compose? I also occasionally dabble in music-making.

I jest. But Pokemon wasn't really my interest, I stopped "involving" when Yugioh, or whatever the hell came out. Pokemon gameboy games were fun though. I'd play them when my friends had it.

But yep, Pokemon and me didn't know each other very well.

Hello there!!!

I love making music, though I can't read or write it really. My ears can though! haha

Yeah, like soulriser said, what kind of music do you like to make?

Hello!

I just make up random tunes, put lyrics to them, and ta-da! I've composed about 7 complete songs so far. Smile

But some of my tunes are like the ones from TRON: Legacy, if you've ever watched that movie. I put all the instruments together in my head and mentally hum the tune for as long as possible. Then, a week later, it's still intact. (Best way to remember tunes.) Razz

Hello!

How'd they lock the computer?

Are any of your songs online so we can listen to them?

That's pretty cool. I play mostly jazz but I really just like to play whatever sounds good to me.

RE: Hello!

Hi OM

Welcome. What did you get in trouble for? And what do you like to read and write about?

Also, I'm a writer. Some of the things I write about are depression, self harm, caring, and basically emotion related stuff.

If you don't mind, could you tell me if you ever get depressed or self harm or know anyone who does. And also, could you tell me how much you feel cared about by your teachers from 0-10? It would be most helpful if you listed the subject and the number - for example English 6 would mean u feel cared about 6 by your english teacher.

And have you ever heard of the Sudbury, Summerhill or Montessori schools? Thanks -

Steve

Hello!

A simple case of sibling rivalry (I got my computer back in a couple days). And I read and write mainly fantasy, to try and lose myself in a world of magic...~

I am not depressed (at least, I don't think so,) and I don't self harm.

Fantasy?

Authors such as R.A Salvatore, or Terry Goodkind?(off the top of my head)

Steve,

Seriously man. That's creepy.

If you want to be a different fish, you've got to jump out of the school.
