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.

i did bro

i have "on anarchy" and that le make friends book we both like waiting at home for me. i also ordered a book on the french revolution a few days ago.

on that subject, i'm becoming a massive franceboo. i mean i already liked france but gosh i think it's surpassing my chinabooism!

no wait it's called on anarchism

whatever it's by that jew cunt chumpsky or whatever

i don't even want friends why did i order that le friends book

oh also i bought like an entire kitchen's worth of utensils the other day cuz im sick of the chinese taking the COMMUNAL FUCKING UTENSILS up to their fucking rooms and not putting them back until fucking morning

so fuck everyone else here with their shared poverty utensils i got my own flash shit Smile

unlike buying books, i don't feel guilty about buying the utensils cuz im gonna need them for the house in the kinda near future anyway

also i think i've been put on permanent cleanup :|

yay money... but fuck all free time after work also tiring work

oh well only two months of work left anyway

I should buy books on atheism then.

I'm not even religious but I fucking despise atheism. I think likely because a lot of atheists are similar to the man in that they just repeat "hurr durr your gawd doesn't exist and religion iz stoopid fiction" ad infinitum.

Plus, I find it ironic. How is it "free thinking" when you literally reject all religion and label it as "bullshit" without even bother understanding it? Criticizing is fine but the typical argument isn't even critical, it's just the same ad infinitum crap repeated over again.

Life of an Attention Whore

i'm trying not to take work so seriously by telling myself the phrase "work to live, don't live to work" every day

i need to chill out and stop taking many things so seriously, my anxiety might thank me for it

on the topic of work i don't know what i truly want to do for a career. this electrician thing might be temporary. might not, maybe i'll like it and stick to it. but if i don't like it i have no intention of forcing myself to like it and "keep at it" or whatever. i want to raise a family, how can i raise a family if i am unhappy? that'd be one fucked up family! career changes are a definite option for me though i guess is the point of all this.

i'm not staying at this fucking factory though. fuck it's dreadfully mindnumbing. this is the shit school prepares yo for? factory model schooling wasn't it? i mean i guess i can see how it does so. no person that had not gone through the schooling system would be able to tolerate this shite.

it's baffling there are people that have worked there for decades. i'm gonna be leaving after like half a year lel. i won't regret leaving i think. unless i'm struggling for money somehow. we will see.
