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.

I had to make it interesting

Evaluation of Effectiveness of Fit/Well Exercise Program
By: Amber Howell

The activities I fabricated for my exercise plan most paralleled my interests in sports and my fitness requisites; these activities create a desired work out plan for myself and will sustain my interest throughout the entire thirteen week program. For several of the activities that I had flexibility with in selecting I choose activities that I would find delightful to my liking or would be of interesting to me: soccer, bicycling, calisthenics, and swimming. Less attractive endeavors for cardiovascular would be successful because of my current obligations to walk my dog everyday; this responsibility ensures that I keep to my fitness plan for wearisome pastimes -- such as jogging. I adopted water-related activities for the sweltering month of August; thus, I can snicker at the fruitless efforts of my fellow Fitness and Wellness comrades as they exhaust themselves in 98 degree weather. I also constructed an exercise program that did not necessitate for activities that did not endure for a sustained amount of time. An hour, or a few minutes longer, is all that is sanctioned for each day; this erects a plan that is manageable in both time and intensity.
