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.

I got suspended for three days.

So a teacher was having one of their famous "sincere" talks with me. She said that I'll "be a failure if I don't try harder". (Exact words, yes). I said, "You're a fucking failure", and walked out. The Principal stopped me, and...

Three day vacation, yeah!

Re: I got suspended for three days.

God, and here I have to go to school for two hours tomorrow, on the weekend. But, at least it doesn't count as a grade, and it's only review for the finals.

It's not a classic car rebuild project, so it's not exciting. I'm just restoring my old '93 Dodge Intrepid.

However, I just replaced the tranny today, and me and my friend are going to rebuild my engine over the next week or so. Later will be some minor body work and then we're going to paint it black. Then comes the turbocharger (cheap ebay kit, heh) for the hell of it.

The plan is to get the car running better than it did new.

Re: I got suspended for three days.

Ooh, car revamp. Sounds fun. Also sounds like something to shove in the faces of your teachers. I'm serious; drive up when the car is done, ask that same teacher you called a fucking failure to come with them to see something important, and show them the car. Tell them what you did to it, and how long it took. Rub your success in their goddamn face.

Actually, completely reworking a car whilst keeping the frame intact sounds fun. I might do it when I get older.

Woot, three days where you have the time to actually learn the shit you want to learn about...and at a much greater pace than at school.

Fuck school.

You can't be serious on that. That wasn't necessary to force you to go on the weekend against your will.

I never thought about suspension like that. I just did whatever I felt like doing. I don't think I just sat around, but if I did, that's better than school. School is worth negative education.
