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.

Today's tumblr topic " Studyspo"

Hey all! So today I went to tumblr to check out new stuff from people I'm following and I saw a popular topic today called "studyspo" and it's all about studies and useless pics of people's laptops and pens and notebooks...
Okay , study generally is related to school and university but theirs quotes and tricks and tips to study hard and spend 99% of time to study is annoying me. Check the actual topic and comment here your thoughts about it.

I scrolled very down to see various posts there.
There's plenty of them. Some seem okay and some give advices to study or relieve stress.
There is a lot of pictures of people's desks and schedules and so on...
Well ,besides that useless images as always we see on tumblr ,I'm showing you two examples:

Usually if it's science/history related I do fine if I don't study.

Today's tumblr topic " Studyspo"

French, Math, and Chemistry all sucked because I couldn't remember shit for them. However, its not my fault that I have like 5 other classes to study for and maintain good grades. You might say its due to laziness, but I honestly tried so damn hard to remember shit, but when your autistic it really brings a special challenge to learning compared to neurotypicals.

The most entertaining thing was dissolving a copper penny.

Srsly, we should at least learn basics of explosives. The whole oxidation process and the 3 primary components of nitrogen carbon oxygen.

Or, better yet, figure out how to make explosives yourself through the internet and then teach everyone else in your class.

And don't judge the studyspo kids who like to take pictures of their desk. Some people find pens motivational.
