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 Holiday Season

It's that time of year when you switch to the radio station that insists on playing the same six songs on a loop. But certainly there are more songs for the season, even if you're only counting the Christian and secular ones.
Where I'm from, despite the large ethnic communities, the radio station is at a loss for what to play. They have nearly the whole world to chose from, and the promise that a good number of locals would appreciate hearing Stille Nacht, Lulaj ze Jesuniu, etc.
Children and nostalgic would love to hear Snoopy's Christmas, and with the new movie, this is even more likely.
History buffs are dying to hear Gloucestershire Wassail and whatnot.
But no, we're stuck with way too many covers of Let It Snow.

Where any of you are from, do you guys have the same problem?
And what Christmas carols would you like to hear on the radio that you don't hear much?

Holiday Season

I hate thet goddamn christmas specials. Their so crappy and corny. One minute I'm watching a sci-fi, next minute their celebrating some fucking holiday VERY reminiscent of Christmas.

And they've even got those damn cheery jingle crap. So annoying. I don't give a crap.

Holiday Season

Oh my gosh, yeah! And the aliens or elves or whatnot never have their own version of Halloween, or even Independence Day. It's always Alien Christmas. It's never a dysfunctional or awkward Christmas either. Always suspiciously unadulterated in happiness and enthusiasm.

Holiday Season

I can't stand Christmas music at all, especially before Thanksgiving. I mean, the people who focus entirely on Christmas skip entirely on a major holiday. Yes, Thanksgiving is full of inaccuacies. For example, it would generally be in October when the harvest is collected, not late November.

schoolsux's countdown until school ends:

177 days until i get out of freshman year (aka hell)
1280 days until I get out of prison (aka school)

(as of november 28, 2016)

also Fu school
