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.

Hola School Survival Forums!

Hola gentes! Me llamo genuine anarchist, y hablo pocito espanol. Tambien, mi espanol no es bien. No me gusta la escuela, y soy una chica. Giggle

Okay, ignore the above post. Really, I don't know Spanish that well; just the basics. Hi everyone! I'm new here and found this site through another forum.

Enough about me; let's talk about me: Biggrin
-I'm not Hispanic, despite my limited knowledge of Spanish in the introduction
-I'm a girl
-I suck at picking usernames, which is why mine is generic and unoriginal
-I hate school, but I love to learn (don't we all?)
-and yes, I have a high GPA in school
-I'm a high school junior who's almost one of the top students, supposedly well-behaved and quiet and shy, and mostly liked by the teachers, but I came here, so something's fucked up
-but I have an independent mind that has questioned religion, conformity, and society in general. I have lost a lot of "friends" for simply being curious and speaking my mind

I don't like it when people call me "smart" on the basis of my high grades. The only thing my high grades have done for me is earn me respect I didn't want and taken up time I could've used doing something I actually love. I love to sew, knit, bowl, read, spar in martial arts, do yoga, travel, and do service work. I consider real intelligence the ability to think critically and be resourceful (be creative with one's circumstances).

So...I'm genuine anarchist (aka bona fide anarchist), and I'm new here. Smile

Hidden stuff:
TRIGGER WARNING: THIS TRIGGER WARNING CONTAINS TRIGGER WARNINGS!

Dear Tumblrites: Despite your wrongly self-diagnosed PTSD, no line of scientific evidence suggests people can be triggered over the internet. Triggering works through the senses (i.e. smell, taste, touch, vision, hearing.) but it goes through real time; if you're not experiencing it in real life as it's ACTUALLY HAPPENING in your ACTUAL life, you CANNOT be triggered. The only exception to this is if you have a seizure, but then again, that's triggered by epilepsy (i.e. rapidly-changing flashing lights) NOT PTSD. Remembering a bad incident is NOT the same thing as having a flashback. When you remember, you think; when you flashback, you feel.

Thank you! And sorry my username is so close to yours; I was in a rush and saw the word "anarchist" when trying to pick a name.

Medium, I think. But I have a large bust, so I'll go with large.

I think you should post a pic so we can determine exactly what strait jacket size is necessary here.

I apologize in advance for any broken computer screens.

I think he just wanted tits, actually posting your picture out in the open like that is generally not a very good idea on the internet.

Also, thou art being too hard on thine self, I'd tap that.
