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: School in general- why i HATE it.

Sleep at 12-1(maybe latest 2am). Wake up around 7-8(get to college by 9am). At college till about 9pm. Home by 10:30pm.

But only 2 days a week and I got a 6 hour period of free time between my morning and evening class. If last class ends early enough, I can make the earlier train and be home 9:30pm.

Wait, wtf? So, in theory, if I decided to find a perfectly legitimate source on the internet which can be perfectly verified without even using Wikipedia, I'll get an F just because it was on Wikipedia? What the fuck?

Man what the fuck you're missing out an hour of sleep, I wake up at 5:45 and run out at 6:15. Also you sound like an middle schooler so stop throwing on make up for those uglyass mexican boys around and you'll save so much time.

School schedules are notoriously unfair....

I hate it when people tell me to "act your age". My brother would consistently pester me about this when I was in middle school. "Stop watching the news! You're a kid, watch cartoons!". He could get quite aggressive with this. Pure ageism at its finest.

For me, it's the opposite.

[My name], stop watching cartoons! You're almost a man, watch the news!

School in general- why i HATE it.

If anyone has the problem of that parent/sibling of telling you to "act your age", always keep this thought in your head, "my head, my rules". We may have to be subjected to compulsory schooling, but we don't have to change our thoughts. They want to, but you can resist.
