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.

Guess who's back?

Damn! It's been long since I've last logged on and that feels pretty darn shitty! I've been a lot busier now that school has started - things are going okay, same old, same old, had some pretty cool things happening but not for long, unfortunately so there's still some boredom hanging around. Besides school, I've been feeling rather shitty -.- fever and stuffs, nothing serious but I'm feeling a lot better now and I'm hoping to become a frequent user again. I've caught up on some of my reading (currently reading the first of His Dark Materials trilogy and let me just take this space to say: PHILIP PULLMAN IS FUCKING BRILLIANT!) but there are also a lot of tests and stuff coming up (at the moment I'm preparing for my Physics paper tomorrow) especially because this is my final year, my mocks are during November (wish me luck!) and I seriously need to get my head down and prepare. We were given a surprise test in Biology on our first week back and I ended up with a lousy C (Missed by 1 mark!) I managed to convince the teacher that I had a lousy grade because of it being the first week and needing to get into the "zone" of school and stuff. She was cool about it but damn, I wasn't XD Anyway, I've missed this site and hopefully will be coming on a lot often! TTYL, AWESOME PEOPLE! Biggrin

Welcome back! I've seen you in some threads. Anyways, glad your back! I'm planning on reading the Dark Materials trilogy at some point.

"I've been making a list of the things they don't teach you at school. They don't teach you how to love somebody. They don't teach you how to be famous. They don't teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don't teach you how to walk away from someone you don't love any longer. They don't teach you how to know what's going on in someone else's mind. They don't teach you what to say to someone who's dying. They don't teach you anything worth knowing."-Neil Gaimen

Didn't know you left Razz

Welcome back. Physics paper? Biology test? That's one hell of a way to start school. Even my first week of college didn't start that insane(did have some quizzes, but the professors are pretty cool and the questions were insanely easy as long as you at least listened in class)
