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!

Hi, everyone! How're you guys doing? After reading a good number of articles on this site, I must say I'm impressed( SoulRiser, you're friggin' awesome)! I totally agree with the stuff said on this site and school's a waste of time and destroys the will to learn. Anyway, I'm a college aged( but I'm not in college right now LOL) black bi sexual female who loves every subject from physics( my fav) to astrology. My hobbies include reading, writing, drawing, gaming, drawing, and designing. I'm a creative and independent person who wants to own her own business someday. I'm thinking about creating a math cartoon for adults Smile, being a fashion designer, and being a horrorcore rap artist( though I'm not very good, but I write good songs). Yeah, I'm pretty eccentric xD. Also, I'm a horror freak( thanks to my f***ed up childhood) who likes everything from horrorcore rap to death metal to horror fashion. Bye, y'all xD!

Re: Hey!

Fantasy (of most kinds except Tolkien rip-offs), sci-fi, literary fiction, erotica, and historical.

And yeah, stuff around here moves fast when it has to.

Re: Hey!

Sweet, we like most of the same genres LOL. You read any good books lately? Can't really any good new ones. Btw, do you like dark fantasy and erotic horror?

Re: Hey!

I'm reading the A Song of Ice and Fire series. It's dark/epic fantasy; I really recommend it. And check out China Mieville's stuff, he writes brilliant sci-fi/fantasy.

As for erotic horror... I've never read anything of that category Razz

Re: Hey!

Hmm... I think I have heard of A Song of Ice and Fire series. Ever read Magic: The Gathering? It's pretty good. Ohh... you should read some erotic horror( can't really recommend some books though LOL). I plan on writing one- it has a pretty good plot I think. Btw, I read some of your posts on gaming. You do game programming and design? AWESOME!! I might design a few a games myself( have too much on my plate LOL).

Re: Hey!

Welcome I like psychics as well, and I am, like you, bisexual.

You seem to be extremely busy, right now I just finished high school so I'm taking it slow.
