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.

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.

RE: MY SCHOOL HATES HATS!

Yeah man, most schools usually have some bullshit policy like that. I remember back in sophomore year, some old bitch of a teacher would hang out in the school's front area and if anyone had a soda, she would tell them to get rid of it. I had a soda, and she said to either throw it away or drink it outside. I walked outside, put it in my bag, went back in and walked past her. Funny shit.

MY SCHOOL HATES HATS!

I'd imagine there is a de-facto ban on soda at my school, but no one is dumb as shit to bring it in the actual can. People just put it in the thermal cups anyone can buy these days.

And fuck the school for telling me to waste a soda. I'd tell them that it's my soda and therefore the school has no right to tell me what to do with it.

MY SCHOOL HATES HATS!

My school is rather relaxed on things. Most of the time they don't care if you are wearing a hat, and most people wear them inside. As long as you are careful, most people don't care (Except for the Women Principals(for the Freshman and Sophomores I think)). Also with soda, no one really cares, they have soda in the vending machines here, it's $1 (Albeit nearly everything is $1 or $2 in the vending machines, even the gum....and our school is closed campus.....(I have a theory on why we are closed campus, but I digress)). They really don't care that much. Hell people wear tails and cat ears...I'm actually wearing cat ears right now...and typing this from school................... anywho, I do agree that the ban on hats is somewhat unnecessary.

Pretty Much my only signature...I'm mainly a lurker....you can find me on the IRC (or on DnE and their IRC).

Yeah my school has this policy "no hats inside the building" so if you're getting ready to go out in the freezing cold, they'll make you take it off and wear it outside in the freezing cold. My school also has this other policy where you must stay outside during breaks and lunches even though they made extensions in the school to let students stay inside if they do not wish to stay outside ... then they give out detentions if you point it out.

You gotta carry your soda like this?

Well, without the brown paper bag. Bringing a drink with a brown paper bag would probably get you suspended thinking you have alcohol.

What if it wasn't alcohol? Would they still suspend you?

Schools have suspended kids for stupid things before. Though probably not, I'd imagine they might still try to pull a fast one and say that the fact you have a brown bag is suspicious, and accuse you of "possessing alcohol". Schools have done dumb things before, that wouldn't surprise me at all.

RE: MY SCHOOL HATES HATS!

So if I brought an empty bag ingeniously shaped like a bottle, Id get suspended. Intriguing...

Maybe I should carry a white paper bag, like the one they deliver chinese food in(it was white?)

Oh shit, he's obviously hiding a gun/drugs/alcohol/knives/nuclear material under that bag! Better suspend him.

MY SCHOOL HATES HATS!

At my school hats are only banned inside of the building. They have also banned hoodies and caps. If a teacher sees a student wear a hat inside a school building or a hoodie (or a cap) even at the playground, they don't get a warning. They get a uniform detention (also known as U2). Plus hoodies and caps often get confiscated at my school while winter hats don't. And in my school there is a rule that everything that is confiscated can only be collected by an adult after 24 hours (Except aerosol sprays which are never given back). Sixth Form students do not wear uniform, but they are still not allowed hoodies or caps.

I can understand the hoodie ban, those are unfashionable /s

WTF is up with your school's rules though? Are they trying to be a dictatorship?

If that is a reason, then my school was pretty inconsistent. My hair (bangs) hid my face when I looked down and no one had a problem.

Though, my classmates would riot if there were any anti- certain hairstyles rules.
