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.

Need help with homework?

I like it a bit maybe, but because I'm so good at understanding it I'm always underwhelmed in math class. And the three hands of a clock are equadistant at 08:00:20 if the clock's minute hand only moves after an entire minute has passed.

But seriously, most people will never need anything we "learned" in the last few Years of Math class. I'm going to study informatics, among other things algorithm-scripting, math might come in handy in doing geometry/algebra related algorithms. Sometimes it's interesting to solve those problems, sometimes it's just busywork.

I'm kinda surprised no one has asked for any homework solutions yet. Because I have asperger's, I'm kind of a genius. So I always have to explain everything to the others in my class and I always post homework solutions because I tend to be done much faster than all the others. Two weeks back, my entire grade (about 15 classes/300 students) had to do project work: We had to learn how to use ARCGIS, a map software to process maps and geographical data and visualize these data. We were supposed to upload a pdf file once we were finished to prove that we did it. So all people from my class come to me asking me to explain it to them, guys from other classes I know ask for help, I'm even approached by some girls I don't know at all and they ask me if I'm that one computer freak/genius. In the end, I just took my map file, moved some visual elements, changed colors and wrote the other names on it, made a pdf and sent it to everyone who wanted it. I saved about 40 people from wasting 3 hours on shit that they would never use, and I needed about 2 minutes per pdf. Now some people are really fucking grateful and really fucking impressed.
