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.

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. Send me a message if you'd like to keep in touch with me & Steve.

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.

As do I - and they offer Spanish, German, French, and Latin. But I was denied French and Latin, and didn't want German.
"Denied?" On what grounds??

Dunno. All I do know, is that when I was picking classes, I chose Latin and French. I got neither, and instead - Spanish. My parents didn't really care, as they said they wouldn't be useful when I was working. I tried to get switched, but all the classes were full by then.

T'is a great shame....and odd, because the French language is actually becoming more and more useful in the workforce. Aw, well.

Well, it has no spoken form.

And simply reading it as 7, h, 3, makes you look like an idiot.

....quite so. I was thinking more along the lines of what Hispanics speak, which tends to be either more guttural or sharp-tongued. The dialect in the actual country sounds rather different than when coming from someone who is a native of Mexico or etc.

No, you couldn't. You really couldn't. It wouldn't be a language. I can speak binary, because it's not just a programming language.

This ain't binary, it's English with ascii-coded character numbers and converted to binary.

Re: Languages you want to learn?

I want to learn more English. I want to be able to pop off multi-syllabic words like it ain't a thing.

I'm studying French, Japanese, and a teeny bit of Korean right now. (Honestly, with Korean, I only care about the Hangul. It's fcking beautiful.) I wanna learn those, and Russian, German, Mandarin, and Spanish. And Latin. And then maybe Klingon, just cause.

If I could learn every language, that would be nice.
