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.

Err... I believe chicken pot pie. But perhaps mixed vegetables, cream and chicken could amount to peach smells. Somehow. Razz

Re: And then I word-vomited everywhere.

Hey, I made up loads of people in my spare time. Sad thing is I never ended up meeting any of them for real. Sad

Now I just stick with the ones that already exist... and make up new things about them. Mwahaha

Re: And then I word-vomited everywhere.

I think it would be pretty awesome if one day someone e-mailed me and was like, "Dude... I'm Maggie Strange. Stop stealing my identity, bitch." I probably wouldn't even respond, just sit there and go [img]http://i47.tinypic.com/24x2hch.jpg[/img]

Maggie Strange is my sister, at least, I hope so.

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

I gave her wings but she don't wanna fly no more.

O Hai!

Copy editor from North Cackalacky uh, Carolina here. I trust that my grammar won't offend, though I can't guarantee I'll make no typos.

I love trance as well. Sucks how there's no sound card in the computers here at work. :( You could hear a pin drop.
