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.

School sucks

Hey guys I'm new here and I just wanted to say: this is the best thing EVER. My school is so cliche, has a ton of homework and so so strict. Like I almost got suspended for sleeping and not doing homework. They give so much meaningless homework though and the people there are so goody two shoes and hate the rebels like me. (Well not really I was just trying to sleep) but in their viewpoint I'm such a troubled child and I have something wrong with me. My old school was heaven compared to this. But anyways, this site has made me feel SO much better and has helped me a lot. I love these tips so much and I feel like I've finally found my place in the world. OK that was a pretty sucky intro but...cya!

I hated when I would fall asleep in school because most times I would wake up in a pool of drool.

well what i do is i sit down normally, put the textbook in my lap and put my forehead on the desk so the teacher would think i was reading the textbook, she once caught me with my eyes closed but if that happens just say you were praying.
