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.

I think I'm banned from the library for a while..

Everyday I go to the library for lunch because the internet connection there is far better than the cafe. So, I usually go straight to the library from my class but instead I decided to stop by the cafe to grab some food. I asked my second bell teacher for a pass to go to the library, he said yes. Then I went to the cafe to get some food and head out. I walk into the library and show the lady my pass. (If you go to the library with a pass after the bell rings, they'll let you in.) She said that this wasn't allowed. No further explanation was given until I said that's dumb. Then she said you need a cafeteria lady to sign the pass. My mind exploded. How will they be able to reach out to me when they're feeding over 500 kids? The line is very long and if I had to get a lunch lady to sign my pass I'd have to make a new one because my second block teachers signature apparently isn't allowed even thought I've done it many times and just 2 days ago they decide ''Oh! You're not allowed to do this. You can't be in here.'' It's really messed up. Anyways, since I can't do anything but speak, I walk out saying ''crappy system.'' I couldn't see the look on her face because I walked out the door as I was saying it. Surely I'm not allowed because that lady thinks she can ban anyone she wants from entering if someone does something she doesn't like.
