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.

I don't wanna watch the news anymore!!!!

I came home from work and sat down to watch the news becuase it's all I had the energy left to do. I sat down just in time to see that Obama had given over a billion dollars to some private coorporation to promote "green energy" or some shit like that. And apperently all the money somehow dissappeared within a year. WTF????!!! And then after the commercial break there was going to be some interview with the CEO of starbucks on how to fix the economy.
My reaction:

Good, you shouldn't watch the news. Its fucking corporate mind control. If you knew who owned all of the news outlets you would be pretty fucking pissed.

Re: I don't wanna watch the news anymore!!!!

Gore I stopped watching news(more like tv) back in 2008 and while I'm not the perfect state of mental sanity I can say that was one of the things that helped. Like others have said the media is pretty much shit and whatever they report is garbage(if the news is truly important you'll hear it on the internet) and if you gotta have news then stick to foreign websites like 5 pointed out.
The news nowadays just isn't good to anybody with a functioning brain and its not like you can affect anything anyway(least not yet).

THANK YOU JESUS SOMEONE WHO AGREES WITH ME

Go to work. Send your kids to school. Follow fashion. Act normal. Walk on the pavement. Watch TV. Save for your old age. Obey the law. Repeat after me: "I am free."

Re: I don't wanna watch the news anymore!!!!

I don't watch the news anymore either... it is rage-enducing. Most of the shit they talk about there never ends up affecting me directly anyway... and if it did, well, then I'd find out about it first-hand. Razz

I watch daily show and Colbert Report. Its actually more accurate since your skeptical about the news.

Again, I agree with you. School does teach you things. And once again, you are missing the point entirely. It's not that I disagree with school's mission or the things it teaches. What I object to is that the students are deprived of any choice in the matter. As benign as the intentions may be, any system that forces people into an environment where they have no say in their lives is a situation ripe for abuse of power.

I sometimes go to Russian news, most of the time I don't really care though.

People say the problem with me is I have psychotic tendencies and care not about other human beings I don't like and or know. So?
