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.

Lightbulb Short School Rants

Hi. Lex again. So I fell and fractured my wrist on Friday night. My dominant hand, of course, and I'm now in a cast for an undecided amount of time. But I can't do anything. I can't even put my own freakin hair up in a ponytail because of my stupid cast. I was told by my teachers via email that I would not be getting any special exceptions or excuses. I fucking hate them all. I also dance, and my performances are in 3 weeks. I am still allowed to dance but I am going to have a gigantic freaking cast on my arm which makes me so angry GrindteethBrickwallCensoredMadRantingTapedshutThunder
Also I have a Romeo and Juliet packet due tomorrow that I have worked on for almost 5 hours now and I am not even close to done. My math homework was six problems that took almost 20 minutes because I can't fucking write. And I may have other homework that I haven't started yet because they just can't leave us alone, can they?

So that's my life. Anyone else have any rants they'd like to share? Popcorn

Short School Rants

That sucks :/

Seriously, if that happened to me I'd just refuse to do the things that are near impossible with a broken wrist. Or write so horribly illegibly with my other hand that they give up. Razz

Short School Rants

Welp If I want to share my Short School Rants with you here it goes:

Wake up at the Crack of Dawn

Be forced to do math work at 8 am in the morning when you're literally exhausted.

Be misunderstood and angered by the sheer ignorance.

Learn misconceptions and downright lies about history

If you were me, nobody would accept the excuse because I'm ambidextrous.
HOWEVER, seeing as you aren't, just don't do the work. It's not worth hurting your wrist any more (fractured mine a few times and it isn't the same as it used to be because I'd used it too much).
Can't you get a doctor's excuse?
Or, if you really want to irritate your teachers, ask them to become your personal scribe during your study hall/work time (assuming you have that time).
