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.

All you need are good people to argue with stuff about. Once you are good at understanding where other people and yourself are coming from, nothing else is very challenging, but you gotta first develop your brain muscles before trying to put anything inside of it. YOU need to come OUT of your mind by talking with people. expressing yourself openly and honestly is a risk you need to get used to taking if you want to gain much from time spent with actual physical teachers.

If you are old enough to clean yourself, cook for yourself, take general care of yourself, then your parents have the time because depending on your age you might not even really need them for anything except to occasionally drive you somewhere.

so how old are you?

The thing is, school takes out most social interactions, but, I do have the internet and that has alot of varying opinions.I can't drive or cook, but I can learn, except for the driving part, I need to wait for that.I'm not open to saying my age because anonymity.

I sexually Identify as a T-34 Van Tank. Ever since I was a van I dreamed of rolling over the oilfields shooting hot sticky shells at disgusting foreigners. People say to me that a person being a Van is Impossible and I’m fucking retarded but I don’t care, I’m beautiful. I’m having a plastic surgeon install Tank Tracks and A 76.2mm cannon on my body.From now on I want you guys to call me “Vansty” and respect my right to kill from below and kill needlessly. If you can’t accept me you’re a vanaphobe and need to check your vehicle privilege. Thank you for being so understanding.

RE: Should I Try to Start Highschool Early?

my point is that the basic structure of intelligence is built the same way. if you seriously deal with REAL challenges then you'll gain that ability. everything else is academic, meaning find out who or where what you want to know is found

Absolutely try to start it early, because you'll be out of school earlier!
