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.

Back To School Supplies

Ah, the infamous back to school advertisements.

Yeah, I actually went to Wal-Mart earlier this week to buy my iPod. School doesn't start in 2 weeks for me, but there were promotions for that stuff everywhere. No kidding.

It should be illegal to put them up so early. I want to have a fucking break. Stop putting school on my mind,

They generally put them up around mid-July. I've heard it's a big cash cow for retailers though.

Back To School Supplies

Whenever I see a back-to-school sale ad, it's always a warning.

I see back to school ads in the weirdest places.

Back-To-School discount on condoms for students anyone?

They should create "Prom Night Condoms."

I'm not sure if they could pull that off tastefully. I've heard of some schools having condom dispensers.

RE: Back To School Supplies

I love back to school supplies...
Only because I fucking love pens. And pencils. And locker decorations/organizer things. And rulers. Binders. Notebooks. folders. Fucking calculators.
All that shit.

And I haven't had to deal with back to school ads. I don't watch tv, and I use adblock and I never leave the house.. So Yeah.

I'm a girl ffffeck
