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.

Return of the Strike

I remember I posted about this a few months ago or something, well, nevermind that.

Tomorrow we were supposed to be off school because of some strike. And about 10 minutes ago, I found out from a forum that the strike's been cancelled, AGAIN.

Well fuck them, and fuck them nice and hard and up and down and sideways. I am not going to school tomorrow. I'm gonna tell my parents the teachers are still having the strike, and when they find out tomorrow, I'm gonna tell them I didn't know. All I need to do now is to not allow them to look at the news >.>

Yeah, pointless thread, move along nao.

Let go of all desire for the common good, and the good becomes common as grass.

disconnect the tv and blame the tv company.

Oh, thank gawd. They didn't watch the news, so I got to stay home today. I'll just play stupid when ask me why I haven't gone. Razz

Re: Return of the Strike

IDK, but especially if you're using a shared computer, AND they know you know of this site, you should clear the history Wink
