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.

Hey ceiling Alistar was a pretty cool guy.

He was funny and made cool comments when I killed somebody for no good reason.

That guy was literally dragon age's humor until he got butthurt if you chose logain.
I chose to kill Loghain, and make Alistair be the one to do it.

Justice hath been served. For she is a blind mistress.

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.

Thing is he gets butthurt even if you let logain live.

Mostly everybody talking shit that they don't trust him but zevran mocks him in style.

Zevran tells Loghain that he would like to report that he failed to kill the grey warden because loghain hires him to kill em and loghain replies that he is happy to know and happy he told him with sarcasm.

RE: Scientology

I believe all religions hold some truth. Let's get real, every religion has its controversy, just like what- or who is hidin under the popes giant hat Wink. I've been watching star trek TOS, I find truth in this show. A lot of truth. I've dabbled into satanism to find alot of it agree with. I've looked into Wicca, I can connect pretty well with it. Scientology is deffiently different no doubt it. It's a new belief. Call it a cult, by law it is a religion and I believe we must tolerate it. We don't -have- to believe it or listen to it or practice but be tolerant and nice. Of course we have our opinion. That's what makes us all diverse Smile. The whole Xenu thing holds some truth in a metaphysical aspect. I believe Scientology is more spirtual/self work, such as dianetics which I would love to read up on. They don't seem homophobic which is nice. They say they welcome all people of belief and religion, color and sex. So thats nice. Their churches are by far some of the most beautiful and just mystical futuristic looking architecture to date. A piece of art in my heart (I know that rhymes xP). I was a victim of paychatric drugging so the group CCHR which was funded and supported by scientology, I very very very strongly support 100%. I even became a member today to CCHR because I feel so strongly about this issue which has effected me and alot of my youth. I'll be sending in the money today for that membership card x). I would love to take the time to understand this belief system before I hate or diss it. Their open houses seem very educational and friendly. Sadly in chicago, being our area is pretty old and somewhat shitty (by means if u think Chicago is beautiful, more power to ya), the building doesn't look like a good place to put the church, compared to Pheonox or St.Lewis, even California. So there. My opinion. I hope it contributed to the thread. Smile
