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.

Music: The unschooling style

You know, I love music, music is great, if there's music I like to feel the rhythm of it and stuff. So that's pretty much is what has been taking up my time after school, you kids? I'm learning it outside of school,but I often feel frustrated and angry with myself when trying to learn the piano, like WTF? I just feel so much frustration and anger with myself, when I try to get down and play music. I really cant force myself to shove down chopin, bach, and beethoven. Actually what I like music the most is the electronic music with the good beats and then everyone dances to the music, that to me is the most enjoyable music. But to those pianists or those long playing instrumental music players, they probably will think electronic music is not real music at all and that violin, cello, and piano are the proper instruments. I don't know those are just my feeling to music, I don't want to feel bad when playing music I just want to sing together and play some god damn music and feel the groove. I think I need to do that when playing the piano, not to think so much about the music theory, appreciator, and technique, I learn technique thorough the emotions of just feeling it, don't over complicate things. And don't feel a sense of guilt and shame when playing electronic or rap music, don't feel pressured to play the proper instruments and think about fucking Carnegie hall and stuff.
