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.

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.

Two things you have to think of

You all know how absolutely stupid school is and exams are, we are actually in a website right now that is absolutely anti-school, and we never give any shit about what we are told.
Heck, a lot of whimps are still always like "Surry, can not post more shit, I gut a lutz of examz tu du, XOXO"
...Ok, to each their own, but I think these kinds of people are always pansies from a mile away. A lot of the more popular ones can be seen in memecenter.com... I think most people on this site are the unfunny kind of stupid, but that is what I love seeing.

Back on topic, have you actually thought about exams? I do not mean to say that you must study (really, do not, it just REALLY wastes your time), but have you actually thought about those things a little?

I did, and I just found out two absolutely hilarious things that completely nullify the purpose of school exams that they never had in the first place:

Firstly, just think of the fucking word alone, "exam". Let us just look at it the same way we think "learning" does not mean memorizing shit.
You know the origin of the word "examination", right? To examine a person on certain things, or simply to examine an object or whatever there is. Now most of you will say that school does the same thing, which I kind of agree with a little bit. They are also called "tests", and the questions and tasks are just what you solve with the best you can do... normally. When you do things like IQ tests, it is simple and all you have to do is just give the best you can do without any nervousness.
But as you may notice, in school that is not the case at all:
You are FORCED to study for it like you MUST be good at it or just simply the "best", no matter how hard and obnoxious it is for you, otherwise you are deemed as "dumb" and a "failure" if you can not do it.
This is not a "test" or "exam" in any case, so I put up my middle finger to all the parents and teachers that think of "exams" as only that, and I shove my middle finger HARD up the asses of all the pussies that are like "I have an exam tomorrow, must study, no posts this week, XOXO".

And secondly, more about this whole fucking grading shit. So you are deemed as "failure" when you do not have a good number on a fucking paper, and your teachers and/or parents complain about it. You all know the obvious reason why this is just stupid, but there is ANOTHER reason why all that is shit.
Parents and teachers and whatever simple-minded assface there is will always complain about people who are builders, cooks, etc. because these people did not have the best grades in school and in their minds are deemed as "failures in life". They think anyone who does not have a "good-paying" job because of bad grades in school is "dumb". But please, just think about it for a minute...
Now just imagine if everyone was "successful" and "rich" and would not have to do these physical jobs and instead would work as another stupid ass businessman. If "everyone" were to have the best grades in school, then no one would even have these physical working jobs. Then who will you pay your money to when you want your possible children to be taken care off while you are going out somewhere? Who will you pay your money to when you want to have a new house built somewhere? Who will you pay your money to when you want to eat at a fast-food restaurant?
Yep... you guessed it. These fucking asshole persons force you to be good at school when you do not even want to be, and these same bastards think low-paying jobs are "worthless", but there has to be SOMETHING where you can actually pay your money to. This is also where these motherfucking McDonalds employment jokes came from.

You see, you just got two MORE big reasons to despise school and "exams". I swear to shit, anyone that STILL thinks this way about "low-paying" jobs and thinks school is the only source of "happiness and rich-ness" (because they think being rich is the only way of being happy) are in my opinion a quadrillion times stupider than most religious fundamentalists, because atleast fundamentalists actually READ their fucking bibles and whatever shit there is.

Exams. Actually, I've never even bothered to study for any big tests that have come up and I've done perfectly fine.

These big exams are an unfortunate product of things like No Child Left Behind (United States) and I'd imagine similar laws passed in other countries like Germany. The whole thing is based on trying to raise grades, but I see it's not working.

RE: Two things you have to think of

I have never really bothered about it either, fuck studying. And heck, even if I try hard, I still get fucked. So ultimately, fuck studying. Even those so-called "finals" (which I will have to do later this semester) are things I could not give less shit about. They are just like the actual "exams", but just longer... maybe, but they are just made of the same stupid pointless skin.

It ain't workin', and if it ain't ever workin', stop tryin', because it will not solve your problems at all.

I mean that for school alone. Because literally ANYTHING can be done with trying and trying. Even as a pessimist I believe that anything is possible. They say human power can destroy the earth with bombs? Well, human power can STOP things like these. We always have heard too many terrible things about humans, to the point where even I become sick of it. I believe in the good of humans, I believe that there are a lot of thinkers out there that actually care for humans. It is time to stop fearing what the news tell us, because it helps nothing. We will die anyway, and until these fateful days we have to enjoy our lives with whatever he love.

...Where was I? Oh yeah, school. In school, all that ain't the case.
You fall down in school, you can only stay there, because it is an everlasting world of anxiety...
Humans say atomic bombs are terrible. While I agree with that to an extent (especially because these things are always used by people with no balls or brain from what I can tell), I will say that school is even MORE terrible, because AN ATOMIC BOMB KILLS PEOPLE, THIS IS IT
And I know this sounded extremely stupid, because death is not to be joked about, but when you die, you are equivalently free.
School? You have to stay here against your will...

...See what I did there? I declared school a worse thing than atomic bombs!

Exams are a huge waste of time. They want you to be as stressed and anxious as possible over complete bullshit.

It probably is where they made the first McDonalds employment "joke". I think they're trying to make people feel bad for not buying into the bullshit that's in schools.
