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.

Sigh... more bullshit

So, I just finished another period of tests (more like, survived). I got one of my classes out of a slump, and I'm doing pretty well in my other classes. But there is this one class, economics. I got a bad grade, for it, and I just realised: I made the wrong fucking choice this year.

Economics is base, asinine and boring. I can still swap it for german this year (I think) which I like and is actually useful. Problem is, school will send a lot of bullshit my way for it, I have to sign a bunch of forms, repeat several tests... And I really can't deal with more bullshit this year.

Do you guys think it's worth it?

The system is made of pure bull anyway. If you have to wade through just a bit more to get to the stuff you like, I think it might be worth it. Go for German.

Yeah, I suggest go for German as well. Don't keep yourself in a decision you're regretting.

RE: Sigh... more bullshit

My knowledge of German comes from Rammstein and the one hour I spent on the plane to Turkey learning basic German(learned the numbers up to 19 as well). The rest of the trip I listened to music and watched movies.

U know not even economists know economics so there is no point to a class on economics if economists know nothing about economics. Jesus how many times have I said economics

Yeah... swap. You've come this far, but it's the wrong path. Why go further? Turn back while you still can!
