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.

-SoulRiser

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.

You know... Some members kept saying you should stop telling them what happiness/life should be, but you still go and say "Life shouldn't be this." Sorry if I confused you.

Anyway, I think Comrade is the one guy who said, and I quote, "you don't learn how to act social when your HS'd I am going to tell my child to be nice and blend in and whatever." So he's pretty much the opposite of you. The two of you should ignore one another.

I already said I support whatever you decide is best for yourself. This other stuff is just arguing for fun.

Though, really, it's not very fun arguing with you.

You know what I can see why it's not fun argueing with me.

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!

Yeah I actually apologized for doing all that shit.I was just angry because they started doing it first.

TO be honest, I only started using memes this month. I had no fucking idea what the hell they were and just wanted to try em out, and see if I could play your game, lol.

They are pretty retarded, and annoying, and I hate using the memes over and over again.

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.

Re: Wait a damn minute....

God damn I just noticed I missed a hell of a discussion.

I guess it would be nice to see everyone rebel, stop going to school and destroy everything. But hell if you're failing everything and can't emotionally cope with the bullshit, dropping out (and getting a GED?) doesn't seem like such a bad thing after all.
I'd try to argue but pretty much everything has been said already, and I'm tired, it's late as fuck.

BUt to be honest with all the slavery, and bullshit propaghanda going around these days, so many kids are brainwashed into believing that school is good, when actually it's just trying to prepare you to spend the rest of you're years in slavery.

Doesn't mean it's not worth fighting for. If you truly beleive in something, you should do it.

Umm...I can acknowledge that other people want it and go through it for their sake without necessarily liking it. It's not really a hard concept.

If I seem rude to you, please call me on it gently.

Really, you don't know why you can't ditch?

Because it's the worst thing possible and is apparently a felony crime. Seems legit; if you don't like school, you get jailed for trying to go against it. #dictatorship

It just hit me, you could just not go. All these years i thought I had to go to school, but I realized that it's all in my doing. Yeah the authorities will have a fit if I don't, but, we don't HAVE to go.

But why do we?
If we truly hold strong feeling that this is an unjust path, and waste of a mind and life, why are we so cowardly when it comes to taking direct action towards it.

I just also realized that contributing and feeding into the same system makes us no different then those chickenshit conformist people we o so loathe.

Why?


Also, don't bother reading the last couple pages unless you wanna here a really retarded trollfest, that talks and amounts to absolutely nothing.

My parents make me go.
