Im homeschooled online and lately ive been so stressed in geometry. My mom says its fine if i go back into a real high school but i know shed prefer me at home working. I cant learn easily from these lesson videos that the program i use gives. My GPA is falling. As i write this tears are drying from getting a 41 on a math test. I angrily googled "school makes me cry" and ended up here. I hope putting this out there motivates me enough to try the test again. Ive redone it 7 times now. I hate this.

my life isn’t that hard. i might not have a place i feel safe at home, but i have friends. my trauma specifically isn’t that drastic, although my alters might be. i don’t understand why school is so hard for me. maybe it’s the executive dysfunction, because i’m autistic, but i can’t do anything anymore. i just get stuck in my head and the depression swallows me. i’m smart, i’m interesting (probably), i’m kind, i don’t understand why i’m so shit at school. coming back from breaks or weekends makes me want to puke. i just sit at the desk, staring, unless it’s something that brings me joy or i’m particularly interested in. my life isn’t hard, i don’t know why i feel this way. i’m not an idealist, i don’t think that the school system will get better two, three, four generations from now. i don’t think i’ll be accepted and not mocked for fitting a tumblr snowflake esque stereotype. its possible, yeah, but not probable. i try to keep the standpoint of optimistic nihilism; i do not matter, therefore i can do whatever makes me happy, because in the end it doesn’t matter what i do. it’s easier said than done. i’m just so tired. feel as if i shouldn’t be, but i am. i’m so very tired.

Comment on My Unschooling/Anti-School Testimony by CynicalGuy42
It's funny, sometimes when somebody has a negative view of school people assume that it's for academic reasons, but it seems like the author of this testimony actually would've had awesome grades if it wasn't for the toxicity of public school.

Comment on 4 ways school traumatized me, and how I'm recovering by CynicalGuy42
Dang, sounds like a pretty horrible situation. We're fed this idea that school is somehow good for you, but there's a lot of toxicity that goes on there. The system sucks for sure.

Comment on What to do if school makes you depressed and/or suicidal by SoulRiser
Hey there! Wait a while, I'm busy writing a book about school and life and why things are so idiotic, as well as how they could/should be better. It should be done in a couple months hopefully. People are dumb, but there are also good and decent/smart people out there.
