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.

1. school starts in the mourning
2.before a test school tells to go to bed early
3. where i first heard the phrase "the early bird gets the worm."

worlds too
1. night is usually portrayed as being bad while day is good in most media
2. nocturnal animals are usually portrayed as being evil in most media

I'm not saying I'm Batman. I'm just saying you never see me and Batman in a room together.

I'm a night person, but SCREW ME, because my school doesn't care about my sleep schedule. I swear, one size most certainly does not fit all.

I like the night. I feel all ninja.

Plus, if night was so bad, would there be nightclubs and all that nightlife insanity?

RE: school is anti-night people

Then you look around at some of the unschooling parent or self reliance blogs which have mainly interesting, valid posts but when it comes to the time for classes if their kid is in college: "My kid is the best they go to school at 8:00 which makes him the most productive student there because then 2:00-midnightish is for their job, so he's at work before some of his lazy classmates even start a class! Everyone who disagrees with me is lazy!!"

I've seen so much shit done to youth and for some reason, this has made me angrier than I've felt in years. Abuse and oppression happens all over the world. It's a terrible reality of modern society, but we've all accepted that it happens and we're doing what we can to fight it and build a better world.
But this...this mindless, condescending disrespect toward people who have no legal voice with which to defend themselves, this reduction of parents' betrayal into a cheap crack about kids being computer-savvy...it's like watching a surgeon joke about life insurance while his patient bleeds to death on the operating table. The media's job is to protect society from oppression and they've drawn a clear line between the people worth protecting and the people that don't matter. How can they people sleep at night?

You're a journalist. DO. YOUR. FUCKING. JOB.

As are other people. Really, the night is the best of all worlds to me as it gives me time to actually do things without unneccesary interruptions from other people, or other inanimate objects for that matter.

Night is better than day. I can focus better, and I can actually work without being sleep deprived most of the day. Screw the early bird that gets the worm. In my opinion, the early bird gets the worm, and an early heart attack due to not getting enough Zs. The late mole gets the underground worm, if ya get my drift.

RE: school is anti-night people

Well birds don't need to sleep in straight schedule. They make their sleep within an entire day. Our birds for example sleep most of the night but also sometimes in the day if they didn't get it all at night(sometimes they like to just sit there in this phased out manner...a bit weird)

RE: school is anti-night people

Night is better than day because of the quiet-I don't want it to be ruined with more people roaming around...Even tho an actual nightlife that doesn't involve drugs, booze or partying sounds good.

I am of the opinion that society in general is anti-night people.

Don't play chess with pigeons-they'll just knock over the pieces, shit on the board and strut about like they won anyway.

RE: school is anti-night people

Well humanity was pretty anti-night till we got cheap light via electricity. Candles and lanterns were pretty expensive and not very long lasting.
