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.

Some Lunch BS

Today, at lunch, we had to pick a colored strip of paper, and sit at that table. I hated this because lunch is the ONLY time I get to talk to my friends. NOT TODAY! Also, I sat with the whiniest kid in school. This was supposed to help us make new friends. However, as you can imagine, all anyone did was stare off into space. They had provisions for that, but they weren't very good ones. They had high schoolers (Presumably honor students because they all said they were taking "high-end" classes) try to start conversation. It was kinda like those cheesy anti-drug/bullying groups they bring in. Long story short, it sucked.

For anyone who remembers me going on an archive binge: Thank you all. I know I ended it being a drama queen, I don't really agree with the ideology anymore, and I'm really not the same person I was (I went through a neopagan phase!) but still this site was the first online community I was in. I graduated from school and turned 18. Time flies. KFC Nyan Cat, June 20, 2019.

I hate it when schools try to pull off shit like that.
Newsflash, not everyone in the entire school is going to be best friends with each other. Fucking get over it.

Some Lunch BS

I got a college class that's supposed to be a type of ice-breaker and introduce us to the college(basically a "class" where we do a variety of activities and also have two volunteer students from higher grades who are aides to the professor to answer any questions students will have, and gain some advice and all).

My high school wasn't big on "pro-socializing". They'd rather you shut up and pretend that socializing did not exist, especially with the opposite sex. It's also why most groups tended to just be same-sex students of each class(with smaller sub-groups temporarily forming now and then for various reasons).
