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.

ITT AWOL Copies Rebelnerd

Riot, so, there doth be this girl, who looks cute, and is totally awesome. She plays piano, in fact as I speak she's either singing Christmas charols or doing a piano recital. She's into epic music, one band she likes is Avantasia, and I got an album of Avantasia yesterday, and it is awesome. It's called The Scarecrow, and it is epic win. It's Avantasia's third album. Avantasia is a side project by Edguy's Tobias Sammet, some guy from Europe. It's funny, but Europe is like a haven for Metal or something, which strikes me as odd, as Europe was the 'refined' country in times of old, center of the Renaissance. Speaking of the Renaissance, the new Assassin's Creed is fucking epic, although the 'free-running' is a tad too smooth. Something that bugs me about the AC series is that it calls parkour 'free-running'. There is a large difference: Parkour is the art of getting from point A to point B as quickly and efficiently as possible, whereas free-running focuses more on aesthetics and looking cool, kind of like a Jet Li movie. My favorite Jet Li movie has to be The One, it's just so fucking epic. Although I disagree with the entire concept (multiple world theory), it's still pretty interesting. A guy goes around the 'Multiverse' killing versions of himself after he was forced to defend from and kill someone whilst on a mission for the MPA (Multiverse Protection Agency). Stand By Me, however has to be my favorite movie of all time. Well, I left for three hours, so this is it the finish.

Re: ITT AWOL Copies Rebelnerd

Wow, I think you've captured the essence of the new forum. Laugh

I'm getting Assassin's Creed 2 for Christmas, do I need to play the first one to understand it? I have a bad graphics card, so I couldn't play my dad's PC version.

Re: ITT AWOL Copies Rebelnerd

Yes, yes you do. The plot is just way too confusing otherwise. Also, controls, the second game does not teach you them.

Re: ITT AWOL Copies Rebelnerd

A girl who plays piano, and is awesome? I envy you.

I checked out Avantasia, it's great. I love progressive/symphonic metal.
But I think I only like "The Metal Opera". I listened to "Lost in Space" from Scarecrow and really didn't like it.

Progressive/symphonic metal you say? MUST LISTEN

Anyway, Playing the first one wont be I big deal, I just remembered, I'm getting a new graphics card on Christmas anyway, so I could play it then.

Um... The Scarecrow really does need some getting used to. It's not something you just dive into, know what I mean?

Re: ITT AWOL Copies Rebelnerd

It seemed to pop-ish to me. And not progressive enough. But, it was just one song and just for a few seconds and I skipped a lot.

Re: ITT AWOL Copies Rebelnerd

I sort of like the pop-ish sound though. But I like everything, seriously. Give me a song that's not by Disney, and is made by an artist that isn't a skank, and I'll probably like it.

Re: ITT AWOL Copies Rebelnerd

Avantasia really isn't too poppish, but it's varies greatly in mood, tempo, pitch etc.

Also, if you don't like it (it, there's only one stable member), remember that the lead singer is hot.

Short story long

Hidden stuff:
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.

LMAO LIKE HES PENIS IS SMALL
If the lead singer changed, that's probably it. And I didn't listen it for long enough. I like progressive music a lot, I'm very used to many different kinds of it.

Re: ITT AWOL Copies Rebelnerd

Tobias Sammet is the lead singer, and the only stable member. Remembered this topic after looking at Rebelnerd's.

Listened to it again full thorough. It was kind of boring but it had some good moments.
