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.

Leon Kinotolian Wrote:- Jocks. There is a line between true athletes, and the jock counterpart. Jocks tend to have MASSIVE egos, sometimes meshing in with white gangsta wannabes, and are overall pathetically stupid. So idiotic, they WILL NOT understand what you try to say to them as an argument or insult, and simply laugh it off and snap back with some pointless comment that, in a utopian world, would make everyone else shun him for his lack of mental function.

For a long time I've avoided most of these bastards by luck or skill, but a couple of weeks ago I had the funniest conversation with a jock in my Spanish class. We speak in Spanish for a few minutes every day about whatever topic we'd like to improve our Spanish and if we don't know a word we ask our teacher. So, somehow I ended up talking to this jock. I was almost rolling on the floor because he was trying to incorporate elements of his jockiness in broken Spanish. For example, he tried to point out of some of his recent wins in a topic that is barely related. I don't remember what we were talking about, but it led up to competitiveness. From there he just segued into how awesome he is. I tried to make the point that excessive competitiveness is a bad thing (which is difficult in Spanish). To which he replied something along the lines of "Yeah, I'm really competitive, but I kind of have to be to win so much. My record is something something." Keep in mind that his accent does not even change when he speaks Spanish. I feel like I've lost some brain cells by talking to this guy.
