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.

Re: Running Away

RUnngin away has been in the back of my mind all this year. I'm so paranoid and obsessed with it that I actually pack my bags for no reason.

BUt It's pretty hard because you can get put in an orphanage if the police catch you and you don't have a fake ID.

To be an anarchist, is to suffer greatly. To be a black woman is to suffer secretly. To be the earth, is to suffer silently.

I wish no harm on anyone, but those whose harmful ways will not stop without the same harm.

It's time we kill this cancerous system, before it kills us and everything left of gaia. Rise from our immaturity and take back our autonomy!

Re: Running Away

And you'll end up starving to death or something along those lines. It sounds neat as all hell, I know, but it would not be ideal in any way.

Re: Running Away

I used to dream of this. When I was back in school I was close to just saying fuck it and not going, burning my uniform and just wandering off doing what I liked until I just go back home. I don't regret not doing it cause it would of put me in a shit position, but it sure as hell would have been fun.

The problem with running away is that you've got to keep running.

Re: Running Away

You know what they teach you in survival camps? How to survive until you can get rescued. You know what they don't teach you? How to live out there indeffinitely. If you just up and go, you'd probably die even if you know what you're doing. There's a reason Bear Grylles gets picked up after each show within a week.

The only way I'd see any of this working is if you did it like this guy did:

He was awesome. He knew his shit.

Re: Running Away

What about that one spanish dude who survived for years by slitting turtles necks and drinking the blood? Or you could try something along the lines of the book Hatchet.

People say the problem with me is I have psychotic tendencies and care not about other human beings I don't like and or know. So?

To be honest, I'm pulling shit out of my ass. I have no idea how difficult it would be, all I really know is if you go out there without a plan, you're going to die or have to come back early.

Re: Running Away

It crossed my mind at various times but I never really considered it. When I was a teenager, I wanted to leave but I knew things would just turn out worse if I tried to. Instead I was just waiting for the day I could legally leave. But when I was 17 my mom briefly became more respectful towards me. I've stayed since then even though it got really bad again because living on your own and having a job is hard and awful, but I am going to try to do it next year. But yeah, I'm beyond the age of "running away".

My sister once ran away from our house to her mom's house.

Again, I agree with you. School does teach you things. And once again, you are missing the point entirely. It's not that I disagree with school's mission or the things it teaches. What I object to is that the students are deprived of any choice in the matter. As benign as the intentions may be, any system that forces people into an environment where they have no say in their lives is a situation ripe for abuse of power.
