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.

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. Send me a message if you'd like to keep in touch with me & Steve.

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.

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.

-SoulRiser

Excellent save, and good advice as well. That should provoke discussion.

It was about the only way I could get my foot in the door at the local supermarket, which I had left to focus on the college courses. Later that year I managed to get hired on for a full-time holiday job at the local mall. Now I have some good references AND work experience, and now I have an interview to get a full-time position that pays 9 an hour. I had to claw my way to this opportunity but it isn't impossible. Have faith and put in the effort, make sure you wear clean clothes and shower before the interview, and never give up. Never fucking give up. And make sure to sign up for as many entitlement programs as you are allowed. And for the love of GOD make sure to file your taxes. You're pretty much guaranteed to get something out of it, and TurboTax is just so fucking easy.

That's good advice.

I should take notes, actually - I might need them in the near future.

Only 9 an hour and you had to claw for it?

What exactly is this job?

Perhaps, but it pays 9 an hour full time and it isn't seasonal. I don't expect to live off it forever, but that's good enough for summer.

Let's not start hitting each other over the head with our jobs, now. Somebody might get hurt. :>

RE: Can somebody fucking tell me how the FUCK do you get a FUCKING JOB!?!?!?

Pffft! I'm 2 nanoseconds old and I'm earning 150K as a professional jackass.

Hello, traveler.

This is an ancient account I have not used in a long time. My views have changed much in the intervening months and years.

Nonetheless, I refuse to clean it up. Pretending that I've held my current views since the beginning of time is what we in the industry call a lie. Asking people to do so contributes to moralistic self-loathing. "See, those people have nothing damning! I do! I'm truly vile!"

Because you can never be a good person with a single blemish on the moral record, I thought that simply entertaining some thoughts made me irredeemable. Though I don't care for his writing style, William Faulkner presents a good counterexample. He went from being a typical Southern racist to supporting the civil rights movement. These days we'd yell at him for that, probably.

People are allowed to change their views.

Nevertheless, this period of my life has informed some of how I am today. In good ways and bad ways. To purge it would be to do a disservice to history. Perhaps it will not make anyone sympathetic, but it may help someone understand.

If, after reading all this, you still decide to use the post above as evidence that I am evil today, ask yourself if you have never disagreed with the moral code you now follow. In all likelihood you did, at some point. If some questions are verboten, and the answer is "how dare you ask that," don't expect your ideological opponents to ever change their minds.
