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.

-SoulRiser

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.

Hey!

Hi, finally decided to join this site after a few years. I think i discovered it a while ago when i was in the 3rd grade (9th grade now), and was reading a few threads and got scared and thought i would never come back to this site. Starting High School, I realized how much I despise it. So I came home from a shitty day and typed "I hate School" and came across this part of the internet again.

Welcome back!

I see the oldfafs scared you off. Don't be afraid, the oldfafs managed to scare a lot of people off. Plus, it appears you were in elementary school, so it's understandable.

I first visited this site back in August, after my sophomore year. Views on school have changed since.

Oldfaf is a term for an older member on here, before this site was shut down on mid 2012. If you want to see them, they're still around DnE.

It's always a cookie. Why a cookie? What's a matter with you people?!

How about a danish(pastry), or Carac, or some Bear Claws, an Eclair or even some Bossche Bols?

Hey!

Pepsi, anyone? Staple drink of the average basement dweller. Is that how Soul came up with the name "The Basement"? Because it's full of trolls who have nothing better to do in their basement than troll? To make them feel at home?!

Oh my. The world is so much clearer now.

I prefer Ilicit Cola. But they only sold that in my previous town for like a month. A shame, too.

But yeah, Coca-Cola's better but it costs like a dollar more here and I'm a cheapo. Razz

Hell's Pizza. Yeah. I haven't tried it but I hear it's pretty decent.

And isn't Mountain Dew made by the same people who make Pepsi? Heard that somewhere. Dunno if there's any truth to it.

Hey!

Mexican Coca-cola is the good stuff.

A bit hard to find in my area, though I know a pizzareia nearby that sells it, along with mexican sprite and fanta.

Basically it comes in glass bottles(nostalgic), with real sugar(you can tell the difference despite the crap about "high fructose corn syrup is just like sugar!" ads), and I think slightly different ingredients(I call it a "natural" taste)
