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.

School is driving me crazy! A little rant, ya know?

3 different science assignments, 4 pages of math, 2 pages of a comic book for my GT class, and a paper for english. My homework over the 4 day weekend I am on. (ends monday)

I'm in 8th grade and Everyone at my school is INSANE! They all are trouble makers...They need a whooping.

I have aspergers, and school gives me sensory issues. Bad ones-- never mind the fact teachers only pay attention to the extroverts and teachers can't teach...

School is driving me into depression and stress. Dx
Anyone else going crazy? Just a rant~~~

Holy fucking shit, that's epic.

It's only 8th grade? I'll assume that you're in middle school. If you're an American, don't give a shit. Colleges don't give a rat's ass about elementary and middle school grades anyway, so don't fret if you don't turn in all that stuff. I rarely do my homework at home, yet I'm perfectly fine.

Just do all the easy shit and you should be fine. Just make sure not to go more crazy.

"The idea I began to explore was this one: that teaching is nothing like the art of painting, where, by the addition of material to a surface, an image is synthetically produced, but more like the art of sculpture, where, by the subtraction of material, an image already locked in the stone is enabled to emerge." - John Taylor Gatto

I know, I would do the minimum but I care way too much about the consequences. But grades itself? Eh.

RE: School is driving me crazy! A little rant, ya know?

My sister is doing SAT and ACT studying at school on sat-sun. She is in 11th grade(though due to a technicality. She is actually supposed to be in 10th).

I would have never agreed to such bull. Especially when they say its mandatory. Imagine 7 days aa week of school -_-

In the USA you submit your high school class transcripts not your middle or elementary school ones to colleges. Middle school doesn't effect college scholarships, or acceptance into a college. So what are the consequences?

Getting some of my stuff taken away. I use video games to de stress, and I get them taken away over stupid stuff. Same for phone. It is a big deal for me, but I know it probably sounds stupid. xD

You still have your hand, your mind(imagination) and a certain organ...

Fap? Who said Fap?! >.>

It could mean your heart...or brain...or lung...or liver...or kidney...or bladder...or a church organ...
XD

NoFap huh. I couls never do that. Need to keep my hormones in check or else Il think about nothing except sex(I didnt do it for a month once, the longest, and I felt like exploding). It must be my testosterone, gah.

I need a women in my life...but I must use my young body's energy for self-improvement and progress first. And Im picky, so I can usually only find my type at specific places.(Hell...my stamdards for even casual sex is pretty damn high Razz )

To koko: Ala book? Books are a form of mental entertainment(I read Stephen King's The Dome in one sitting...it was 1000+ pages). Plus itd take a nitwit to tell you not to read. Reading a book is like laying some super mine that cant be passed without blowing up. Even the finest attempt as using words will not work. You either walk away or get blown up. Thats why books are awesome.
