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.

Recommend me some books in 1 hour

You people have 1 hour approx. before I use my Waterstones card to order shit. I like horror (Stephen-King horror, not Stephenie Meyer. Not really) and some good antischool books would be good, too.

I don't know how much munnies I have on there, probably £20 (Around $30/$40 I think)

Re: Recommend me some books in 1 hour

Evil Genius (series if you want)
Maximum Ride (series again)
For one more day - Mitch Albom
Series of unfortunate events (obvious)

None of this is horror, but they're good books.

Re: Recommend me some books in 1 hour

I've added this to my Wishlist, and I'll decide which to buy when I have more suggestions. I have £15 left and that is £10, so I must be careful as I bought Interview With A Vampire. NOW, some may say I just went back on my promise not to buy Stephenie Meyer shit, but she didn't write it and this is a CLASSIC, dahhlings. Plus, Sarah can read it too!

Call of the Wild - Jack London (dog book, btw)
White Fang - Jack London (Wolf book)
Phantom Tollbooth - Norton Juster (Best book ever in my opinion)
