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.

-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. 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.

My clothing is basic as fuk. 2 jeans, a bunch of different color polos(like a lot of bunch), and then two suits I bought recently along with 2 trousers and two dress shirts.

Trying to upgrade to suits and classiness is expensive, so lots of mix-n-match. On my lazy days though, I just throw on a polo.

i have two pairs of jeans and this one thing like pic related (the sweater thing) except with a bunch of holes

lots of t-shirts though but i don't often take that thing off except to wash it so who cares about those. my autism shoes are also falling apart. will have to replace those quite soon.

i'd look beautiful in a suit (as though i don't already). god knows what i'd get if i actually had money. probably would go pretty basic too

Factor in a tailor to make it nice and fitting, and it gets more expensive. Cost me $90 to tailor two suits(though they came out perfect so...worth it probably)

Life of an Attention Whore

Or you can do ultra cheap lazy classy. You get a plain black sweater, wear jeans with a belt, put on black loafers, wear a big watch, and BAM you're like a 50+ charismatic dude who spews class and confidence in such simple attire.

Life of an Attention Whore

ok i'm moved into the boarding house and i have groceries. i don't even feel anxious much

ward was fun ngl. i went in expecting some movie tier "DO WHAT WE SAY TAKE THESE PILLS EAT THIS FOOD" shit but nah it was really relaxed. they had this social worker chick help me "get into" the real world easily (find accommodation, get on the welfare monies etc) which was very nice. she made me chocolate cake too :3

surprisingly they didn't put me on medication except for this thing to relieve anxiety that i could take whenever i wanted. they also took away my diagnoses of dysthymia and major depressive disorder which kinda sucks for the whole "i'm an attention whore look at how damaged i am" thing. also kinda sucks cuz it's like "huh i'm not depressed, this is how i'm supposed to feel, this is kind of shitty".

the people at the ward were kinda anti social. i was expecting people to be more talkative but that simply wasn't the case most of the time. there was also a huge gender imbalance which baffles me. everyone except for some old lady and another 50 or so yo lady were blokes. kinda expected more tumblr tier girls but there wasn't a single one in sight! i was the most tumblr tier there i reckon!

the nurses were hella cool. a mix of oldish and young pretty ones, with the oldish ones being far more useful as far as actual advice and helping me understand my retard head goes. the younger ones were clearly less experienced and more of a "tell me your problems you can vent to me but i won't be able to sort shit out for you" type. idk. they were all real friendly though, almost to the point of treating you like a baby.

the rooms were ok. i though it might be one of those ones where you got a roommate but nope, you get a room to yourself. the nurses insisted on keeping a curtain on your windowed door open at night so they could stick a bright arse torch in your room. the only real complaint would be the less-than-comfortable bed but i'd be being an entitled prick to complain about that honestly.

the food was fucking brilliant compared to what i was used to at home. (ACTUAL NON-WATERED-DOWN MILK ANYONE??)

i need to get a fucking job now Brickwall

Life of an Attention Whore

it's the god damned waiting that's the problem man. too much time to think fucks a fella up. not good. would like one of those cursed remotes like in that one adam sandler movie in times like this.

don't think i'll pursue an apprenticeship. would mean going back to get ncea level 2. will stick with the goal of getting some shitty min wage labouring job. implying anybody wants somebody like me as an employee. ah but this one guy shows interest in me! but oh the waiting god damn the waiting is doing my head in (he might never even contact me again! hah, imagine that!)

i'll just off myself if i stagnate for too long.

xiu xiu is my favourite music artist

what is that sinking feeling in one's chest called

I like grey. That's why I want to have a home in Scotland, where the weather is generally overcast and a tad chilly. The sun is evil.
