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.

Supppppp!

I found this forum after scrolling around on Google about how school isn't worth it, because it's not. And I can't survive it, and you guys seem like you all freaking rock. So Fu to school and [img]http://i56.tinypic.com/2qx965h.gif[/img] to smart, sensible-minded people who can actually make a decision for themselves and not want to follow some brainwashing system.

Hi! Biggrin

With all your lies, you're still very lovable.

Hey Biggrin

How old are you? Are you still in school? What kind of stuff do you like doing?

Let go of all desire for the common good, and the good becomes common as grass.

Re: Supppppp!

I'm very good, thank you! How are all of you?

And hey, Faby. I'll be a sophomore after the summer, so yes I'm still in school. I like going for long walks, partying, scouring libraries and weird thrift stores, finding and listening to interesting music and not going to school, haha.

With all your lies, you're still very lovable.

Re: Supppppp!

Hello, welcome to SS, somewhere on the main site you will find an application form for further posting, we have also assigned a schedule on what forum you have to be at a certain time, follow the rules to the period and I would hope we won't have any problems, now would we?

Hah, I'm terrible at trying to act like a run-of-the-mill school administrator.

Ello der! I am Amortisatie, resident pessimist and music fanatic, I too like long walks and odd thrift stores Biggrin . Nice to meet you. Also, interesting music you say? What type of music?

Same thing.

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?
