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.

a weird dream

Hi, well, had a weird dream 2 nights ago. So, I'm in school, but the stock market is right outside my school. And, the economy was doing really good, so weird music was playing. Then, suddenly, the economy was collapsing. I was worried there might be food shortages do to the collapse. I was hiding in a room, wondering if the market would get better. Strangely, the room was a sloping room, that the floors were kinda like a hill. So, I'm trying to hide. And then, I forgot the other details. What could this rather strange dream mean?

Fear of bad economy?

RE: a weird dream

not really sure about that, as I don't exactly pay attention to the stock market most of the time. I have a feeling it symbolizes something else.

Interesting. The room sloping and being shaped like a hill made me think of geometry... Razz

Financial concerns could be a part of it it. Anxiety over being able to find work? Or an echo of your parents' concern about that for themselves, or for you?

RE: a weird dream

I just had some kind of weird dream similar to that.... I might have had a dream that was akin to that as well.

Mo, I'm quite known for my delusional dreams and my re-call. I'll link to you my old dream log. It's very interesting.

I've had very weird dreams. I remember one back when I was 13 where I was in this crackhouse and this girl I had a crush on was naked as well... it was one hell of a dream.

RE: a weird dream

Very interesting, actually

And, in case you're wondering, my dreams feel exactly like real life, All 4 remaining senses. Actually, there was one where I was being imprisoned in a jail cell for 5 minutes. I don't know why, but I woke up crying. Smile

Could be you being worried that something bad's going to happen or other, not sure what it is because I'm not sure what it's supposed to symbolize.

Is there anything you've been worried about lately?

I once had a dream where I saw one woman kill another with a stapler. I escaped on some skateboard to some park. My parents picked me up. When I got home and went to bed, I overheard my mom tell my dad she was glad my life was preserved.
