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.

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.

For your AVID essay, do a Mossad agent

Of course you wanna procrastinate if it's boring things you have to do, and were told by someone to do.

Do Mossad and point out the ebuls of murdering palestinians and working for a terrorist state!

As long as it isnt boring and overused?

Never heard of the book.

Ah, because it's a college = success brainwashing class?

I guess, pick an actual interest... or pick something extreme like the suggestions above. You can probably find a related degree for most career paths, whether or not a degree is necessary.

But yeah, it's understandable why you'd be procrastinating.

Maybe first, consider not doing it, then find a way to make it interesting if you decide to do it. The career assignment sounds like one that could be interesting if you find a way.

Procrastination, huh? Yeah, you've struck a chord - I've been there before.

Rather, I am there, seeing as I'm going to put off making this response any longer. We'll see.
