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.

10/26/10 - "I came out of my mother's womb and they asked me, 'Do you want to be a math teacher?' and I said, 'Sure, I'd like to be a triple-extra-large math t-shirt!' and I guess that day I signed myself up to be a math teacher. It's weird."

[in which he butchered an old saying]

11/10/10 - "Don't do the time if you can't do the time."

[on the subject of motor vehicle integrity]

11/11/10 - "Don't buy cars from Detroit that were made on a Monday; the people who made them were still getting over their hangovers. It's safer to buy one made on a Thursday because the workers are happy for Friday and they're looking forward to getting drunk."

I like the one about the cars :3

Someone dear to me once said "We are the light." But, if that's true, then why am I still searching?

Re: Math teacher quote of the day

At my school, we have a program-thing called "vocal valentines" where you can, simply put, hire members of the chorus to sing a love song and deliver a letter to anyone you want them to.

One of my friends uploaded a video of our math teacher (the subject of this topic) receiving a vocal valentine. Not my account, if you're wondering.
