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.

School is starting! oh no!

Guess who has school tomorrow? Me, and it sucks.

I dont want to go. First day is always so hectic and everyone is stupid. The only good thing is I get to be with my friends.
At least this is the second year of high school and I know alot of the cool teachers and know my way around. I feel sorry for the freshmen.

On the very down side one of the worse schools in town is closing and all their students are coming to mine. Yahoo. :(


Wish me luck. Will report back if I make it out alive.

Yuck. First days are the most boring because all they do is go through the rules, like we don't know them. FOR THE MILLIONTH TIME.

Re: School is starting! oh no!

First day of school was not good. They didnt have my schedule so they handed me some random one and told me to follow it. Then I asked a nicer teacher to print off my real one and she did but Im in all the wrong classes. So tomorrow I have to go and get everything fixed.

Going to school in under 2 weeks and I'm getting in a negative mood very fast when thinking about school. Ugh, tell me about my freshman years and the negative imagination.

Re: School is starting! oh no!

My first day is the 24th.
I am excited against my will,
1) I'll see my friends,
2) I'll have something to do other than lay around, go for a walk, or beg my parents to take me someplace,
3) I am doing golf this year and I love golf,

But I hate that I'm so excited for it!
I just have accept it, remind myself that I'll end up wanting out after the first day....
Which I will.
And that makes me not want to go at all.

Carla Franklin may be a whore. She may be a wonderful, kind, moral woman. Seeing as I don't know her personally, I cannot know for sure. However, I find her actions (suing Google, requesting the personal info of her critics, getting angry over random internet idiocy that she should ignore and be bigger than, trying to get this site in trouble because of a few users' commentary on the situation, etc.) pretty ridiculous and unwarranted. If she didn't want people to to be talking about/judging her, well 1. that's impossible, she's a human, and 2. she shouldn't have been a model or agreed to be on film. AND 3. she DEFINITELY shouldn't have sued Google and made all this fuss over a few random idiots whom she probably won't ever know expressing their opinion. Mmkay? MMKAY.

Good luck.

Re: School is starting! oh no!

I'm on my second week of school now. It s-cks just as much as I thought it would. I had trouble with my schedule, too. Actually, over half the school had major problems with their schedules. I didn't have a second period for a week and now they've changed my schedule.
