This is Alan! You know what’s cooler than having a ton of money? Knowing how to make even more. And Alan knows how! You probably straight away think that he must be full of himself, so let him tell you his story. He’s 17 now, but this all happened when he was 12.

So, Alan’s family is not very well off. They’re so poor that he wore the same shoes for an entire year, no matter whether it was raining or snowing. But those were good shoes; like, very durable ones. Like, they were the Iron Man of shoes – nothing could destroy them. They were much better than his brother’s, which made his feet hurt sometimes. But still, Alan’s shoes were veeery ugly, and he really wanted new ones. He dreamed of getting these sneakers that he’d seen once in a store.

You may think that this was shallow – but remember that he was only 12 at the time. And in any case there was no way he could act on his wish to buy those shoes. He didn’t have any money! So you might think that he eventually gave up on the idea...but nope, not really. He started thinking that if he could just find a way of somehow making money, he could buy those shoes. And they weren’t cheap…

His dad was always saying that he should study harder than he himself had, so that he could have a better life, and both Alan and his younger brother really took that advice to heart. He was a really diligent student and spent so much time studying.

He got good grades but had no money, whereas plenty of his classmates got bad grades but had a lot of money. So Alan made them an offer – he would do their homework in exchange for money. Not a lot of money, but enough to save up and buy those sneakers after a couple of months.

It was a pretty easy task for him, because basically, all he had to do was copy out his homework for them, changing it just a little so that nobody would know. He even had different prices for As, Bs, and other grades. And he also helped the older kids a little with some of their subjects – not like, math, but literature and history.

Alan’s scheme went great at first, but then almost everybody stopped paying. He wondered why, and it turned out that they had made one guy pay and then copied his homework. He had to find a way to fix this, so he told them that if they were going do that, he would have to raise the price. They didn’t like that, but they also didn’t want to do their own homework, so they agreed and everything went back to normal. But then one of the guys wasn’t happy about it, and he actually revealed everything to the teacher.

The teacher was very angry with Alan, and warned him that he had to stop doing it or else he and the other guys would have a lot of problems. So, he had to stop...but he still hadn't saved up enough to buy the sneakers he wanted. So of course, he came up with a new plan. Because many of the older kids now knew who he was, and their teachers didn’t know about his tricks, he asked them to give him cool stuff in exchange for their homework. You know – like toys, action figures, simple gadgets.

He would then start playing with them in class, making it look like he was having a lot of fun. To be honest, it WAS fun. And, if someone asked him if they could play with something, he would say no, which made them want it more and more. Then at some point he would rent it to them or even sell it. Soon, he was buying stuff from the older kids and selling it for more money, instead of doing their homework. But of course, sooner or later their parents started to notice, and the teacher got angry with him again, saying that he was abusing the other children and it wasn’t okay. He disagreed, because they were very happy with all of it and henever like, forced them to buy anything.

Eventually, he finally had enough money to buy the sneakers he had dreamed of for so long. So Alan bought them and went home. Finally, all his hard work had paid off, and even if he had found himself in a lot of trouble, he still ended up with what he wanted. Then he saw his brother’s shoes – they were in a way worse state than his, and he remembered how many times his brother had told him how much his feet hurt, and he was constantly sick because his shoes had a lot of holes in them and got wet every time he stepped in a puddle. So he gave the sneakers to his brother, and he was so happy and surprised. Honestly, it was much better to see his brother happy than to keep them for himself.His parents were angry at him at first, because they thought he had stolen them, but he then explained how he got them. And then they were proud of him because they thought he had done it all for his brother. He didn’t tell them that it had originally all been for himself, though.

SEND IT TO [email protected] IT WILL BE GIVEN A VOICE OVER BY A PROFESSIONAL ACTOR AND AN ANIMATOR WILL MAKE A VIDEO OUT OF IT! ★ Subscribe ACTUALLY HAPPENED https://bit.ly/2J5HP7j This is Justin, and he recently bought a new cell phone. Nothing unusual, you might think, but for him this purchase was very special, and here’s why. Around a year ago Justin’s dad was promoted at work, and they had to move to another city. His family’s new income brought a new social status for all of them, and his parents decided that the first thing to do was to send Justin to a new and better school. Together, they chose one that corresponded to their plans for his future education. It was a boarding school for boys, mostly from wealthy families, but he was actually okay with that. Meeting new people didn’t actually bother him. It was interesting to hang out with his classmates, and since they all wore the same uniform, it didn't seem like they were all that much different from each other. Except for one thing – practically all of them had a bunch of interesting stories to tell about places they'd already visited and tons of photos of their lives stored on their latest iPhones. Whereas he’d never been outside of his hometown up to that point, and his phone was about three years old. Did he envy them, you might ask? You bet he did! He figured out the perfect solution to his problem by asking his parents to buy him a new phone. He thought that if he could just explain to them how important it was for him to have something like the iPhone X in order to be more like his classmates, then they'd meet him halfway, especially taking into account his dad's higher salary. So, when he came home for the holidays, he kindly hinted that it would be perfect for them to give him something nice and fancy, since he’d done pretty well in his studies. But despite the fact that they now had a lot more money and that he’d been on his best behavior, they refused. They said that the gadget he was asking for was too expensive to just go out and buy for no actual reason, especially since his old phone still worked perfectly well. He tried to persuade them at first, but they wouldn't budge. Justin was disappointed and even mad at his parents, and he kept thinking the situation over while looking through his friends’ photos on Facebook later that night. Suddenly he came across a photo that showed his classmate Richard with a miserable look on his face, holding a broken laptop in his hands. “I guess somebody’s now in big trouble…” the caption said. Suddenly, he had an idea – what if his phone was really broken? His parents wouldn’t let their only son be without any source of communication. In order to not arouse any suspicions, he waited a while, and about a week after their talk about the iPhone X, he deliberately dunked his dependable “5S” under water. Oh, you should have seen how emotional he was as he told the story to his parents about how it all happened! He thought he did great, almost like a real actor. But his dad, apparently, saw right through his deception. He said that he was sorry, but he still wasn’t going to give Justin any money to buy a new phone. He was upset that his cunning plan hadn’t worked out, and that his hopes for a new phone had sunk along with his old one. In fact, he was devastated. Now he had neither a new cell phone nor his old one anymore. But he felt like an even a bigger loser when his mom kindly lent him her phone, which was not only pink, but was so ancient that it didn't even have an internet connection. And it had actual buttons, instead of a touch screen. He now understood how stupid he was for destroying his phone on purpose, and decided to confess. His dad said that what he did was really stupid. However, the fact that he had admitted it gave him an easy win. He promised to help, and told him about a 3-week temporary job offer at his office. The only thing he needed to do there was to catalogue an archive, and he’d be generously paid for it. The thought of having extra money, and finally being able to buy himself his own iPhone X, inspired him during the whole three weeks of work. And it wasn’t hard at all. Sure, it was boring, but he handled it easily enough and received his hard-earned…300 bucks!? This was what his dad had meant by “generously paid”? He couldn’t believe it, he felt so betrayed. It made him furious at his parents again. But this time they also got mad. His mom said that he was no longer a little boy but almost a grown-up man, and that it was time for him to take responsibility for his own actions. And his dad told him that whoever judges people by their cell phones can neither be a good person nor a real friend. And as if this wasn’t enough, his parents cut off his allowance. So, this time he really had to figure out his money problems on his own. Music by Epidemic Sound: https://www.epidemicsound.com #actuallyhappened

SEND IT TO [email protected] We Will Animated With A VOICE OVER BY A PROFESSIONAL ACTOR! ★ Subscribe To MY STORY ANIMATED http://bit.ly/2RoUKcN Hi, I am Natalie and I want to tell you about how I became popular on Instagram, with thousands and thousands of followers. OK, so it all started about a year ago. I had been stuck with only five hundred followers, for what felt like forever! I noticed that other people in my school were reaching more than one thousand followers, and some even more than ten thousand! I was seriously jealous. I just wanted to be popular like them. They were always posting photos of themselves on the beach with their perfect golden tans and their perfectly defined abs. Their weekends seemed to be jam-packed with constant fun, whereas I would be at home trying to finish my essays and looking after my baby sister while my mum worked night shifts in the hospital, just so she could afford to send me to school. One day, during the summer holidays, after I finished vacuuming the house, I was scrolling through my Instagram feed and I just felt this surge of envy run through me. Chris was surfing in Hawaii, Colette was doing yoga in Bali, and here I was, running laps around the garden trying to keep up with my baby sister. I’d had enough! No-one was liking my photos of my morning smoothie bowls even though I was using the right hashtags. No-one cared that I was working at the local cinema. Nothing exciting was happening in my life at all! So…I decided to change that. I ran to my computer and opened photoshop. I pulled up a selfie I’d taken that morning with my green smoothie, and then I searched online for a photo of a far-away tropical looking beach. Five minutes later, I created a new account and uploaded the photo and then I watched and watched, as slowly the likes and comments began pouring in. Something shifted inside me then. People were believing me! They actually believed I was on a proper summer vacation. The next day I shared more photos. One of me snorkeling with turtles, and then another of me paragliding off a mountain. By the end of the week I was up to three thousand followers and it felt amazing! People were commenting and sending heart emojis, and a really famous Instagram influencer even private messaged me to say she had been to the same resort last year and she hoped I was having the most incredible time! My heart started racing. It felt so good to be receiving all of this attention. That weekend I called in sick to work and stayed in my room talking to all my new followers on my page. My mum asked me to babysit as usual, and so I arranged some toys for my sister to play with on the floor, whilst I sat at my desk on photoshop. I was just about to share a photo of me kissing my new Spanish boyfriend, whom I’d found on a modelling website, when I heard a crashing sound, followed by some screaming. I turned around and hadn’t even noticed that my door was open. I rushed out and there was my baby sister crying her eyes out. She had fallen and banged her head, and it was all my fault. I dropped my phone and ran to pick her up and comfort her. She clung on to me and soon I was crying too. In that moment I barely recognized myself. I’d always been a good student, I’d never called in sick to work before, and it’s not like I had no friends. So what was I playing at? After my sister had calmed down, I picked up my phone. I clicked on Instagram and suddenly I just felt sick. What had I done? Looking through my past week of photos, I realized I was nothing but a liar. And then I thought to myself, what if everyone I know is doing the same thing? What if Colette wasn’t in Bali and was just doing headstands in her bedroom? And wait a minute, what is wrong with that? Why are we trying to make our lives seem more glamorous? What’s wrong with posting photos of our cats or photos of us in our garden? I had become so obsessed with getting followers that I’d ignored my baby sister who could have got badly hurt, and I’d even ignored my real friends. I immediately deleted the account I’d created, hoping that no-one I knew in real life had seen any of the photos I’d shared and went back to enjoying my real life. Because when I really thought about it, my life was actually pretty exciting just the way it was. And I certainly didn’t need likes or followers to remind me of that. Sometimes we need a little scare to wake us up now and again and bring us back to reality. And hey, reality is pretty cool, isn’t it? I’ve realized that being real and authentic is so much more important than telling lies just to get likes. So, the next time you share something on Instagram, just be yourself.

This Stranger Waves Me Every Day I Dont Know Her
This Stranger Waves Me Every Day I Dont Know Her

by ACTUALLY HAP...

Story By Janice | Subscribe: https://bit.ly/2J5HP7j This is Janice. She's socially awkward and a little bit shy and insecure. But that doesn't mean her story doesn't have a positive ending. It all began on a college campus, on a day in the Fall. The start of Janice's freshman year was typically stressful for her. She’d never been able to make friends easily or start conversations with strangers. But she was determined to become a happier person, even if she knew it wouldn't be easy. Janice can still recall that particular day when she was having lunch alone at a bench (as she always did), planning her epic breakthrough into the heart of the student community. Her daydreaming was suddenly interrupted when a girl passing by said “hello” to her, and even smiled and waved! You'd never think a simple “hello” could genuinely change the course of someone's life. But that one unexpected act of friendly behaviour was all that Janice needed. She waved back at the girl timidly. But she also thought to herself: “You can do it, Janice!” The next thing she knew, she had joined the students’ book discussion club. In that nice little circle of book-lovers, Janice first started to feel comfortable in the presence of other people. She spent a lot of time hanging around with the club’s members, and became deeply involved in their intellectual discussions. Occasionally, she would still see that friendly girl around, and she still smiled and waved at Janice every time she passed by. And then one day she casually said, “Hey there, Janice!” and walked off. Wow! She knew her name! Now Janice was starting to feel worried. It was that situation where you don’t know someone’s name, but they somehow know yours, and you start to really panic. Janice thought to herself: “Maybe I should just ask her what her name is,” but when she finally made her mind up to do so, it was already too late to ask. Then, finally, Janice's dilemma was solved. She joined the honors programme and started taking classes for her thesis. And there she was in her group – that mystery girl, still waving happily at her as usual. “I won’t get away with it this time”, she thought. Then a miracle occurred – thanks to the roll call, Janice learned that her name was...Anne! Anne, Anne, thank God, finally she had found out! Janice didn’t need to feel that pervasive awkwardness anymore! And then came a blow. Someone said: “Oh, so you guys know each other? Where did you meet?” Janice stared at Anne. Anne stared at Janice. “I don't know! I don't know, okay? We've just been saying 'hello' to each other for years, I don’t remember why we started it, and it was too late to ask!” Janice could perfectly understand Anne’s reaction. It seems that even a friendly person can be an awkward one as well. There's a happy ending to this story, however. Thanks to Anne’s little “hello”, which instilled Janice with the courage to join the book club, she had the chance to meet her future husband, Michael. They got married just two years after their graduation. Anne was her bridesmaid – and by that time had also become her best friend. She’s always recognisable in the photos. Why? Because she’s always waving and smiling! What's your story? Actually Happened want to hear it!

MY DADS DIRTY SECRET
MY DADS DIRTY SECRET

by ACTUALLY HAP...

★ Subscribe MY CHANNEL: https://bit.ly/2J5HP7j This is Derek. You know what the greatest ambition of his life is? He wants to be a famous chef. He’s known that this is what he wants to do since he was four years old, when he helped his mom make Christmas cookies for the first time. After producing his first tray of cookies, Derek was deeply impressed by this magic phenomenon of converting simple products into beautiful dishes. His mom taught him something new every day, and by the time he turned seven, he could already cook a simple breakfast for the whole family on his own. While all of his friends were playing football or listening to music, Derek was experimenting in the kitchen. Derek went to see his dad and told him that he wanted to take up cooking classes. “Whaaaaaat?! Are you kidding me? Cooking classes?! - dad said. “If this is about money,” Derek responded in an attempt to placate him, “I have some pocket money saved up, so I can contribute… Dad, this is my dream! I want to become a chef!” It was then that he noticed that his dad was slowly becoming red with anger. Derek felt devastated. He went to his mom for support and explained the situation. She was very understanding and said he could take the course while she discussed the matter with his father. When he started his classes, Derek felt ecstatic to learn all the tricks and methods that were his first steps towards his dream of becoming a professional chef. His dad seemed to calm down a bit; maybe it was just that he couldn’t do anything about it or that his mother’s negotiating had helped. Derek hadn’t realized what was actually going inside his head. He’d decided to sabotage his own son. Once, Derek was making a simple chocolate cream sponge cake. He was supposed to bring it to class and let everyone try it. There he was getting it ready, all the ingredients tasted fine, he had just made the cream and left it to cool down a little when his dad came to the kitchen and asked Derek to help his mom do the laundry. When he came back from the basement, he finished his cake, putting the layers together with the cream and covering it with fondant and frosting. When he went to his class, Derek was looking forward to receiving top marks, as he was sure that the cake was perfect. His teacher cut a slice and took a bite. Derek was waiting for his smile, but instead saw a strange expression of incomprehension appear on his face. His heart sank. “What’s wrong?” he asked in a defeated tone. “How could you have mistaken sugar for salt? The cream is salty!” Derek couldn’t understand how this could have happened. He’d tasted everything the previous night. Then suddenly it occurred to him that it had been his dad who’d been left alone in the kitchen with his cake. How could he!? He decided to face him like a man, asking him directly: He appeared to be ashamed, and admitted it. Derek was angry as hell. He sighed, and said: “Son, I need to tell you something. Sit down.” He went out of the room and brought back an old photo album Derek had never seen before. He opened it, and Derek’s jaw dropped. There he was, his dad as a teenager in a fancy glittery suit dancing with a suntanned teenage girl. “I’ve never showed this to anyone. This is an old and painful story for me. No one knows it, so please keep it a secret. I used to love dancing and I was really good at it. I took up classes when I was about your age and even took part in several competitions, until one day, I don’t know how but my classmates found out about it. Can you imagine the reaction?” “No.” Derek was puzzled. “They started mocking me, and told me dancing was for girls! They treated me horribly, and in the end I had to give up. But they remembered it, and made my life hell till the very end of school! I know how this finishes so I wanted to protect you!” “But dad, my classmates already know and they think it’s cool! Especially after I brought my homemade muffins to school.” His father seemed lost at this news, and opened then closed his mouth in astonishment. “But would you still like to dance?” Derek asked. “Yes, but keep it quiet! Not even mom knows. Then I guess it’s ok if you don’t have any problems at school. Off you go!” He seemed pretty embarrassed by his sudden confession, but that still didn’t put Derek off cooking. And he thought up a plan. Derek had a chat with his mom the next day about the secret his dad had been keeping from her. She gave him a sly smile and said nothing. But he soon found out that his parents were taking up tango classes! Derek cooked them supper for the first evening after their class, and waited excitedly for them. When they came in, his dad gave him a warm hug and hissed “Traitor!” straight into his ear. But he didn’t look sad at all as Derek gave him a sly wink. #secret #family #cooking
