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.

Greetings all on the forum

I am FCTTFAF, commonly known as Sergej (pronounced sirgay) by my peers. I am a Russian boy living in the US for about 7 years. Anyway, I joined this forum for agreeing with hating school. Being in 7th grade, waking up early in the morning by being scared awake by an alarm clock. Only to go to a place against your will, making you write and do assignments. By that, I mean too much of it. Middle school, the time of hell for most people make this horrible. Dating, bullying, schoolwork, etc. doesn't help the issue of wishing to go to school. Only to come back to 6 papers, 2 tests to study for, and little recreational time. Everything became a serious jolt from elementary. I hated 6th grade so much, I am not ashamed to say I had to take a psychologist to help me. And I'm glad I did. Anyway, I'm getting off topic. Thank you for the forums and once again, greetings.

Welcome there, now, about the tithe you will begin to owe me...

Anything that ever happened or will... one condition, it has to be amazing.

Nothing like that, it'll probably go to me buying a snack of some sort.

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.

I'll ignore this comment as a place to say that the Spetsnaz are not terrorists, but counter-terrorists.
