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.

Tongue Wassup!

Hello anyone who reads this!
I've been to the School Survival website and saw this forum! I love going through random forums and thought that this would be fun to join.
And just by reading everybody's posts, I have to say that this is pretty cool. Lot of liked minded people here.

Despite how I might come off as in real life, I'm actually really fun to talk to over messaging or forums such as this, and I can actually express who I am without having to transform into a ball and roll away.
My personality and music tastes are very flexible. I seriously like everything. I don't judge interests, and I ask that I don't either.

A little about me physically.... er.... I'm Bisexual, I have long ombre hair, Brown eyes, 5'..10? I think. Idk. and I'm probably around 120 - 140 pounds. OH and I'm a male c:

My interests that I favor a little more then others is that I really like Drag Queens xD Please don't call me weird for that, I know I am.
I enjoy playing dress up in a virtual game and taking pictures for my blog that nobody ever visits Laugh
and my favorite type of music is Pop Rock and Hard Rock (Avenged Sevenfold & Green Day are my favorites! ^.^)

But yeah that's me, sorry I typed so much ;-; Thank you thank you and bye.

(Edit: OH CRAP I ALMOST FORGOT TO MENTION, I absolutely idolize Avril Lavigne. K BYE Razz)
