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.

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.

Home work doesnt fit in time given

After searching the internet for some miraculous device that will solve my problems, I found this forum. I hope you guys can help me!
The problem: I do not have enough time to do my homework. Not in the normal "oh too much homework" kind of way, but the actual time in hours at my disposal:
6:00 Get up, eat breakfast etc.
7:00 Jump on the bike, head for school
8:20 School starts (I arrive around 8:10 so I can study a bit more)
4:05 School done
5:00 Back home, homework time until dinner
6:30 Dinner time, 1 hour 30 minutes of homework complete
7:00 Done eating dinner, more homework
9:00 I should go to bed now if I want to get my 9 hours of sleep, but I have only done 3 hours 30 mins of homework...
10:00 got my 4 hours 30 mins (average) of homework out of the way, time to sleep
Repeat
Repeat
Repeat...

So thats my average schedule, of course times will vary often.
The things I'd like to change are:
atleast 9 hours of sleep
atleast 1 hour of free time

At the moment I do not have any free time. Well, I do, but its not really free time. Its 2 minute breaks smuggled into my homework time, like quickly playing a game on my phone etc.

The weekends are better, although I usually sleep till 3:00 pm to catch up on sleep missed.

You might be wondering why I cycle to school for 1 hour, I live in the Netherlands, and its quite normal here.

The 4h 30m homework is everything I need to do for school btw. Not just doing the exercises in my books, but also studying for the tests of the week.

Any tips are welcome ^^

That's crazy... Have you talked to your parents know about this? It's a pity homeschooling is illegal in the Netherlands, otherwise I'd suggest that... but really, it's completely cruel to not have any time to pursue things you really want to. Is there any way you can get out of school earlier? Why is it SO LONG?! That's 8 hours. It used to be 6 for me back in the 90's.

Realistic options:
Stop studying for tests. Just cram 1 day in advance.
Do homework as quickly and sloppily as possible, just so that it's done.
Get to and from school quicker
Eat breakfast quicker (or in some kind of liquid form on the way to school)
Find time while at school to do things you want

People make a big deal about the value of school, but 90% of it is really a colossal waste of time. Don't take it too seriously. It's not worth it.

oh and also No one has any rights. We're free, rights create invisible restrictions. But we live in a society where the majority accepts rights to be true.
