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.

Selling items in school.

So, apparently, after making some decent cash from selling bracelets at my school, the fucking lunch supervisor caught me selling. She told me to stop selling them, and that it was against school rules. Just when I was about to tell her I checked the full school rule book, and it said nothing about selling items at all, the fucking bell rang. I knew I had to get my ass to Social Studies, the teacher gives many detentions for being late, so I bolted. Do you guys think I should carry on? What should I say to her when she confronts me again? Also, why is selling at school wrong?

Ps. Same teacher has a reputation for yelling at kids for doing things that she doesn't agree with. She treats this one gay kid like a loser and one time gave this girl a lecture for writing on her skin.

Most of the time... when you're crying, nobody notices your tears.
Most of the time... when you're worried, nobody feels your pain.
Most of the time... when you're happy, nobody sees your smile.
But when you fart just one time...

Selling items in school.

I'm not sure about laws about selling stuff in school, and most schools usually prohibit that. But hey, don't stop the free market!

Back in 5th grade a bunch of kids would sell boxloads of candy for a few dollars but the school cut down on it. They were jokingly called the "candy cartels".

Go for it, if the rule book says nothing then why not continue?

Well, um, I'd personally get that teacher fired. The teacher does seem to discriminate, and depending on the rules where you live, may be illegal.

Pretty Much my only signature...I'm mainly a lurker....you can find me on the IRC (or on DnE and their IRC).
