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.

It only a few more weeks bullshit...

Sure there may be few more weeks of school that I am forced to do. This few more weeks of school just caused me to stress and rage against my mother who is dumb enough not to understand me as well as not being able to communicate efficiently at some area because of the stress she had in the past due to raising me. What my parents won't understand that 9 months is already long enough to lose my memory and thinking ability due to stress and the self-harm I have done. I lost part of my thinking ability permanently all due to very high stress. I have found that my mother has conformed to the society in her teenage years, but she cannot apply comform in the right situation. She thinks that I conform to the society while I do not wanna conform to people that have total lack of intelligence, lack of self-esteem and the high ability to dumb down another people just like cult act as well as I wanna study the society around me in order to learn about the world around me. I just wish my mother is by far more intelligence and actually understand me. My mother is like an control freak over my father and myself.

ZZZ...

I have 12 more weeks of school, and a countdown in my planner. Incidentally, the only thing i use it for.

Re: It only a few more weeks bullshit...

I get out at May 28, probably after some dumb week full of tests and school spirit activities.
May 28, then I get a week off, then I have to start Health in summer school.
I'm planning to study my own interests with the loads of free time I'm going to have (I mean, it's health, it's not going to be difficult) and show my parents I can learn on my own.
My dad actually was showing me some stuff about physics, and it intersed me. So I might look that up.
I dunno
BUT MAY 28!
The thought fills me with joy.

I mean, even if I have to go to summer school, I don't have to worry about
1) multiple classes
2) tons of homework
3) organizing 6 different subjects
4) previous and present grades in multiple subjects...
5) MULTIPLE stupid teachers(at the worst, I'll only have ONE)
6) not having free time in the day(all afternoon, baby, and I'm not a morning person anyway)
7) having to go for months and months (only 6 weeks, not that bad...)

An it Harm None, Do What Ye Will
An it Harm, Do Only What Ye Must


Lighten up! This life was made for experimenting, making mistakes, falling on our faces, and standing up to do it all over again.
Live for Learning.


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.

Re: It only a few more weeks bullshit...

May 28th if I have to take finals. :(

(Based on attendance or tardies. Cuckoo )

If I manage to not miss 2 days or get over 6 tardies, then I'll get out on May 26th. Biggrin

I wonder why, in our textbooks, we had 2 pages of Civil Disobedience (by Thoreau), when the unabridged one in a book had 18 pages? Seems odd, don't you think?
We almost never read the full stories or full novels in the highest English class my high school offered. We read only small parts of Don Quixote and the Illiad. Pathetic.
