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.

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.

I've been skipping a lot recently.

I skipped Wednesday last week, and woke up late Thursday & Friday going in 5th period which wasn't even worth the goddamn gas and time.

I skipped today and yesterday. Fuck, I can't even remember the last time I had a full week of school. I've missed a day at least almost every week. This morning my mom woke me up and was yellin' and shit, like, ''DO YOU WANNA FAIL YOU DUMBSHIT BLAHAHLAH!!11!1''

At my school you have to miss 25 consecutive days to fail. I don't think it counts if they're spread out, freshman year I missed like 47 lol. I have great grades, not failing anything. I think I'm starting to despise the idea of school again, the problem I had up until this year. This year has been great for me in school, a rarity indeed. My teachers, as crazy as it sounds, are actually really cool. I don't know what's bothering me and I can't tell my parents about it or they'll just be like ''DF U DON WANNA GO 2 SKEWL IN OUR HOUSE??? GTFO.''

So, I'm Nick. What's up?

I don't like anything-chan, internet speak is retarded, text speak is just as retarded, anime sucks very hard, anime-style arts suck harder, and emos (then again, what trend isn't?) are gay. Thank you, have a nice day.

Consecutive means in a row.

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

Then, why would it pertain to over the entire quarter?

Re: I've been skipping a lot recently.

I've wanted a lock for my room for ages, I have a sliding door so it'd be kinda hard to install a lock myself. My bathroom's lock doesn't even work anymore haha.

Re: I've been skipping a lot recently.

Consider yourself lucky for having a WORKING door at least.

Yeah, I know I'd rather buy myself a new vidcard than fix that goddamn lock. Oh well.

Problem, officer?

Re: I've been skipping a lot recently.

Fuck masturbation, can't even rub one off to save my life I've got so many people rushing in and out of my room every 5 minutes. It's quite annoying. No fucking privacy. I wanted to get those hanging bead-things instead of a door. At least I won't have to clean it.

EDIT: this hasn't strayed way off topic or anything, but whatever. I like chatting lol

Re: I've been skipping a lot recently.

Put your computer next to your bed, and turn the monitor 180 degrees from the main rush line. I just hate the lack of privacy, not even when it comes to NSFW material - and I stumble upon a lot of it daily, on unrelated matters. I want a steel chain-fence over my head and monitors, it would be so epic. Or, more monitors hanging above my head, forming an arch over my hax-seat.

Problem, officer?

Re: I've been skipping a lot recently.

I usually just sit on my bed, back towards the wall. Luckily I'm facing the door so I can recover if someone stumbles upon me. Not even if I'm doing anything that should be done in private, I'm just very secretive and paranoid.

Re: I've been skipping a lot recently.

At my old school if you missed more than five days and didnt make them up youd fail.It was ridiculous.

When making up you have have to stay 2 hours after school doing absolutely nothing.It was ridiculous.Another method was staying a whole school day at the high school on the weekend.

Censorship reflects society's lack of confidence in itself.

Re: I've been skipping a lot recently.

At least you don't have a window in bettween the kitchen and bedroom wall. Everyone in the kitchen can see me 24/7. Not only that but people don't knock.

Another thing! My room locks inside out! I can't lock the door without locking myself in. And they can lock me in my room. Worst privacy ever!
