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.

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. Send me a message if you'd like to keep in touch with me & Steve.

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.

Never had much knowledge of caseworkers(other than basics), and any time I hear about them, I feel a degree of distrust.

Maybe I just don't like how they get involved in an individual's life.

Eh. IMO they don't get involved nearly as much as they should.

Considering enrolling in Correspondence schooling because muh mommy wants me to and IDK I should probably do something with my time???

You're still inferior to the Lord High Great Master Wizard. You only have one title before wizard.

A single title is more elegant. More than one just makes you look unprofessional.

That's just a historical sample. Mine would be far longer, eloquent and supreme.

In fact I might have to hire a minion or hundred to pour over Greek,Latin,french,German,Turkish,Arabic,Spanish,Hindu,Chinese,Russian,Swedish, Farsi and English dictionaries and grab me as many adjectives as would fit into a multi-volume set of books.

This way, I could annoy annoying people by having the announcer read out my entire title.

Life of an Attention Whore

hah so funny story

so in the two years i was gone i did nothing during that time. not a bloody thing, i'm still unemployed and without a licence or vehicle or friends. i'm an absolutely miserable wanker so you'd think i'd want to do something to change my situation. ah but no that would take effort and we all know i don't like exerting effort. no but really i'm miserable in my current situation but the alternatives are 1. get a job or 2. go into further education. now i could make excuses for why i can't do either but really i won't do either because i simply can't be fucking bothered doing anything but sitting on my arse being a self loathing prick. i'm totally content doing what i'm currently doing because the alternatives are just so shit and take effort. i know that if i went and fixed my situation i'd be happier and healthier but self loathing is just so addicting!

some day i will rid the world of my useless self but until then i can only hope that someone will put me down like the dog i am

please rate my thread 5 stars and please subscribe to my thread for more epic tales (cringeposts) of this kind.

If you have headphones or something, reply to the music thread.

Just because you're trying to get better doesn't mean that you can't skimp out on that shit, you little bitch.
