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.

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.

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.

Rant with questions n shit

This is my first post here, so, uh.. hi.

It's 1:46 a.m. right now. From 11:00 pm to 1:30 I was working on an essay on a topic I neither give a give a shit about nor see myself using in the future. (History, btw, because I need to know who invented buddhism or some shit) Anyways, I just realized I did the whole fucking thing wrong and I have to restart it, which mum's gonna be pissed off about, but whatever.

But anyways, for those of you who did not go to college, how's life? How is it? Because I need to know whether or not I should suck it up for another 8 years and be financially secure, or just say fuck it and become a musician like I've always wanted to.

Another question, how the fuck do you maintain any type of confidence while you're in school? My mother, she's a fucking saint by the way, every two years she'll let me take a semester online, which I'm doing right now (still shit, but a little better) and whenever I do this I find I have high self-esteem, I'm confident, I have better social skills, and I have healthier/more relationships when I'm not in (public) school.

So do you guys know how the fuck you do that? I don't even know how I lose my self-esteem so quickly, but whenever I go back there, it houdini's the fuck outta me.

Maybe it's because I got picked on a shit ton when I was younger (actually I still do, but I'm not a fucking doormat anymore) I dunno. Whatever, I've ranted for way too long. Goodnight.

RE: Rant with questions n shit

How old are you?

I'm in college and to be honest I'm not sure how I feel about it. I'm in some fucking deep shit ugh. It's fucking god damn stressful.

Dude I struggled with self-esteem and confidence in school. Lately I've found out how to dress and prepare myself better which helps immensely and I've practiced a lot of social skills as well. Reading books that allow me to be a more productive person have helped as well.

I can always recommend methods to being more confident.

I actually changed it back for the fun of it. That was my first avatar on the site actually.

I also used a few others that I can't remember. Great times.
