OK so first offThank you everyone who wished me a happy birthday it meant alot ;w;
and i really appreciate everything you guys did. i had a lovely calm birthday iwth chocolate cake to boot!
and now the main reason i wrote this journal: I felt like sharing a birthday story that happened to me last year (2014) because i still find it funny, though i'm terrible at telling stories.
Now before i say anything i'll make note of somethings before hand
1. When i was in high school we had a thing called a drop schedule meaning we had a totall of 8 classes, 4 before lunch and 4 after. but the way our schedule worked is that it would drop one class before and after lunch. so say i had 1-8 classes our schedule would be 4,3,2, lunch, 8,7,6 (for whatever reason they decided we should go backwards with numbers it was weird) and we would drop 1 and 5. the next day we would take away the first class we had and move everything up so that it was 3,2,1 lunch, 7,6,5. so on and so forth.
2. Another thing is that i used to draw cats on the board of my history class. i would always do it before anyone else got into the room and often it had to do with what we were learning or what i was feeling (if i was hungry i'd draw a cat saying i want food. and other things.)
now that that hopefully makes sense time for the story!
My History teacher was my favorite teacher and i was always the most active/talkative in that class (i was even forbidden from talking about animals in that class because apparently all my stories ended up with them dying.) i just felt really comfortable and we all always got off topic somehow, but in the fun ways where we did actually learn History too. Now History is my Number 4 class meaning the that i had it whenever 4 was on my schedule. my birthday happened to fall on a day 4, meaning the next day it would be dropped.
That day i was really really nervous because my birthday was not the first of many birthdays my teacher would know about. My history teacher was crazy, especially with birthdays. He'd do very embarassing things, sadly i can't remember all of them. but i do remember one time a classmate said her friend's birthday was today and she was in a certain science class. So my teacher decided to call the teacher of that class and ask to talk to the student. He then sang over the phone Happy birthday to them.
Another time was that two days before one of the newer history teacher's birthdays my teacher had found about the new teacher's birthday, proceeded to gather up all the other history teachers and threw him a birthday party...while he was teacher. He made it seem like it was a child's first birthday as well. having a videocamera and giving the teacher a bib and cake and party hats for all his students. he even had a table that when pushed up to a chair made it look like a baby's highchair. while videotaping it he said things a mother would say to baby. (my class later was able to see the video and it was just really funny.)
So when my birthday came i was terrified, but hey if i had to do it i had to do it...but i wasn't going to tell anyone. I did however draw a cat with a birthday hat on and one of those noise maker thingies you blow in that uncurl and stuff. That was going to be my only hint. i never wrote the word birthday on it though.
Later durring the class i was still nervous to see if he'd find out or not, but luckily i was able to avoid it when one of my classmates told him that her friend's birthday was also today. and she wanted him to bother her. So She got the friend to go into the girl's bathroom and facetime with her. while facetiming my teacher appeared in the screen and proceeded to sing happy birthday as loud as he could even doing some silly dance.
When class ended my teacher hadn't even noticed it was my birthday. and to be honest i felt very proud, as so far he'd always caught that it was someone's birthday. THe next day we dropped too so i didn't even have to worry about it then either. However the day after that he sat down at his table in a very serious manner.
On the desk was a mound of sand apparently the other teacher that shared the room had accidentally broken one of the tape holders and it had spilled all it's sand out so now that sand was on the table.
He started talking to us telling everyone how very disappointed he was with them. Everyone seemed to be getting worried and then suddenly he said that we forgotten something very important. My Birthday. Let me tell you even I'd forgotten that it had been my birthday two days before,but apparently he was rather upset iwth not being able to do anything. He meant it in a joking way i'm sure and i still found it pretty funny. in his mock anger he took a pencil and piece of paper, and a coffee bean holder thing and put the paper on the pencil like an umbrella and stuck it in the sand. then put the coffee bean thing under the pencil and said "Happy birthday you get a little island." He even talked about how i'd drawn a birthday cat and nobody noticed, and how me and the classmate who's friend had a birthday must have planned it so he wouldn't notice my birthday.
And that is how i managed to not be completely embarrassed like the rest of my classmates on my birthday. it still makes me smile to think about it.
