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.

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.

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.

- Current Event for Tech Ed. (have to find an article on new technology - and write my thoughts and a summary, busy work)
- Complete my study guide for Government.. (like i'm gonna study anyways... this is one that I'm least likely to do until I know when the quiz is)
- Complete a dumb worksheet for Chemistry.. (all it is is fucking busy work i swear)
-Read 8 chapters of Things Fall Apart
AND
Create 3 Journal Entries for one character..
-Draw something for photography, and take a picture (optional but extra credit) or get one off the internet and put the drawing in the picture...

-Complete something for AVID (class i'm probably going to ask to be taken out of next semester)

New technology, perhaps MOOCs could count.

Photos... try https://www.google.com/search?q=school+bored&tbm=isch -- maybe you could take something along those lines. Or https://www.google.com/search?q=school+stress&tbm=isch

Some of those assignments might actually be interesting, if you can find a way to make them so.

What's the AVID assignment?
