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.

Running out of fucks to give about school

lol, I have like 2 C's, 2 F's, crap loads of missing work and it barely bothers me. I have 0 true friends and nobody really cares about my existence at school until they need something, except for MAYBE two people. I'm a loner and an outcast who's always that one person left over after everyone gets in pairs for an assignment.

I'm strange, quiet and very few people know more than seven things about me.

Oh well!

I'm pretty sure I'll pull through it all.

I will never allow the fire in my heart to be extinguished. That, is my 'pride'."

Running out of fucks to give about school

Are you me from last year? That sounds like what I was like a year ago in a nutshell.

I'm not that much different now, though, excepting better grades and a slightly bigger circle of people who acknowledge my existence. Not a big deal.

RE: Running out of fucks to give about school

I know how you feel. I also haven't given a damn about grades. To me, they have little to no importance, so I don't worry about them much at all.

In the school I go to, I have a handful of acquaintances that I know or talk to on occasion, but none of them are close. Only one person consistently talks to me on a daily basis. A lot of them like to use me as a rantbox/advice center, which is okay with me, since I don't typically mind being a listening ear, but it is draining as well when it becomes highly repetitive (for example, one person I know loves to ask me the same question over and over within a span of three or four days, perhaps expecting a different answer to that question every time. I don't understand this, but whatever. The definition of insanity...) or one-sided.

I'm generally a loner outside of that circle, and I'm often the last one paired with people unless there's an acquaintance involved in whatever paired assignment that has to be done. I'd rather do the assignment alone, or simply not do it at all since most of the group-work I get is busywork and almost always fruitless, than work with these people. Some people are fine, while others are real nuisances, to put it nicely. Forced socialization is a no-go. Noo

I often forget about the existence of the thanks button on these forums...

If my writing happens to be too sporadic, too brief, or missing information, call me out on it.

All will be well if you can avoid getting stressed about it. You seem to be somewhat relaxed now, so just try to ignore the stressful/mean things that people are surely telling you. Smile

RE: Running out of fucks to give about school

Thanks for the responses... :] I just needed to get that off my chest.
Nobody's telling me any mean things--remember, I'm pretty much an outcast--everyone ignores me.
