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.

some poetry/song i wrote


they said
loneliness is best
i sometimes believe them

but it's a catch
not always heaven
knowing you're
the only one

they said
put your trust there into others
i did
look where i am

not always best
to know who you are
sometimes it feels worse
to understand and
preserve your scars

not always good to look
at the stars
you wonder about heavens
and you go back to the start
of being alone
of feeling on your own

they see
i fall back into pieces
no matter so you
turn around again

they hear
a soft voice in the distance
i may need help but it don't matter
because i'm on my own

i'm on my own

i'm on my own

and it's too late now


i have better poems lemme find

here's a better one

Quote:i don't care what you're saying
as long as you turn my way

still i'm here to stay
but i'll leave you any day

i don't see why you still care
i doubt you in every way

still i'm here to stay
but destruction's on its way

i live off of all your love
you give me every day

i wish i could say the same
every day you just seem strained

but i'm still scared to lose you
and i'm sure you feel the same

because i love you either way

i still send out this cry for help
that on attention i still prey

i'm scared to lose you so i stay
but do you feel the same?

maybe i'm just lonely
and too far my thoughts will stray

but i want you here with me
because each day i feel lonely.

whats wrong with Linkin Park? also I only know one song of theirs

Purity is to Believe only that which deserves it.
Wisdom is to follow only the Opinion which makes the best use of evidence.
Excellence is to be mindful of all these things in Living.
