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.

Looking for Summer Music Programs? Los Angeles College of Music,Once LAMA, Has Them!

If you’re looking for a great summer music program, Los Angeles College of Music (LACM), formerly known as LAMA, has awesome opportunities! LACM Summer Xperience offers one-of-a-kind programs for performers, songwriters, producers, and drummers!

Summer Xperience is an unbelievable way to spend a week (or even 2 weeks!) of your summer that you’ll never forget. It’s a chance to network, bond, and create lasting friendships with peers that share your love for music. The Music Performance program is instrument-specific and offers technique for guitar, bass, drums or vocalists. Many classes take place in the new state-of-the-art professional recording studio and these programs provides panels, seminars, and open counseling. In-class private lessons, sessions with artists, managers and producers, open counseling and band performances with other students are just a few of the activities that go on. When class ends there’s more to do at night like optional rehearsals, open jams and special events. At the end of the class, you won’t leave empty handed! You’ll record and be filmed performing cover songs and originals in LACM’s 200-seat Performance Hall. How cool is that?

If you are passionate about music and want to join others that feel the same way, you shouldn’t pass up this amazing opportunity! There is Music Production and Music Performance in week 1, and Songwriting and Drummers’ Reality Camp in week 2. The deadline is May 1, 2014, so check out to learn more and sign up!

You can keep up with LACM on their website at: You can also check LACM on their Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest , Reverbnation, and their Youtube.

Greendarts, can you explain who you are?

How did you make your way here, and what's your relationship to the school and its programs?

(By the way, the subject line in the OP is so long, people may have to shorten it, or remove the RE, when they reply.)
