Watch Now Argentina vs Iceland My Dad And I Were Homeless and Had to Sleep in Our Car


By Gaby | Subscribe: | Record your story @ or our iPhone app for a chance to get animated. Comment, like, share this story.

Gaby’s father and her step-mother decided to get a divorce, which wasn’t all that much of a surprise overall but it came rather suddenly, and at a really bad time because her father was out of work and was having a lot of trouble finding a new job.

At first her step-mom was really kind and told them that she would pay the rent for a month, and that they could stay, while he found a job and a new place for the two of them to live. The apartment had been hers to begin with.

But only a few days later she had kind of forgotten all about her offer and asker Gaby’s dad for the rent money. He told her he didn’t have the money and reminded her that she had offered to pay, to go easy on the divorce while he got things settled and started up somewhere else. Her dad was trying, and looking for a job, and all of that in the middle of a divorce.

She got super mad, denied ever saying that, yelled some more about the divorce and told Gaby and her dad to pack their bags into the car and leave. They didn’t have a choice, with no money and no place to go, only their car and clothes, they shoved a single mattress into the backseat of their car and spent the night homeless, in a car. Gaby spent that night crying, shaken, scared and uncertain, she never imagined she would be homeless, sleeping in a car.

The next morning they watched the house to see when her stepmom left for work and then they quickly went into the house, showered, and grabbed the rest of their things. And still, after all that had happened, Gaby had to go to school. All of her best friends had heard about what happened and they were all really supportive and some of them even offered to have them stay with them and their families, anything other than sleeping in a car.

But, instead, her Dad found a public park that had bathrooms, and one stall that never got used where they stored their larger stuff. Her dad made a shower out of a hose that ran into one of the bathrooms and that’s how they bathed every night.

The park had a barbecue as well, and that’s where they would cook their meals, all the time sleeping in the car, homeless.

Gaby and her dad lived like that, shopping for food a day at a time, eating and showering in the park, and sleeping in their car, for a few months. Finally, one of her dad’s friends somehow found out what was going on and insisted that they come to stay at his house for a couple of weeks while her dad continues his job search.

Her dad was embarrassed, and ashamed, but he needed the help and he accepted his friend’s offer to put them up. With the very little money that he had all he could afford for them was a shared house, with lots of people living in it, totally cramped and uncomfortable, and the people there were really weird and acted really strange. Gaby and her dad really hated it there. It was almost worse than sleeping in a car.

On day her dad got great news – he had gotten an offer for a really decent job, but, it was in another state. Gaby really didn’t want to move, didn’t want to leave all her friends and move away – but – she knew that they needed to and that her dad needed that job.

They had to go all the way from New South Wales to the Norther Territory. She pretty much cried the whole way.

But now it’s been three years since they were homeless and sleeping in a car, and since they moved, and she’s now super happy that they have settled into a real home that feels safe and secure.

And, even though it sounds strange, she’s glad that they had that experience because it brought Gaby and her father so much close together, and she saw and learned how much she had taken for granted, and will always appreciate every moment she has and all the blessings that come with them.

Watch Now Argentina vs Iceland My Friend Nearly Killed Me When We Played Truth Or Dare

★ Subscribe ACTUALLY HAPPENED

Hi, this is Michelle, and this story literally happened yesterday. There’s so much to talk about from last night that she’s not really sure where to start. In brief, she was betrayed by her best friend and she almost died, and both these things happened within fifteen minutes of each other. It all started as a truth or dare game.

Michelle has a group of friends that she’s known since they were all about five years old. There are six of them, all girls, and they’re fourteen now. Actually, a couple of them have already turned fifteen. She won’t bother going through all their names, since she would have to change them anyway to tell this story, but the important thing is that out of all of them her best friend is called Lana. Though she should probably say she HAD a best friend.

Anyway, Michelle and Lana live close to each other, so they’ve always seen each other more often than the others. Over the years, they’ve grown really close, so basically she knows a lot about Michelle and vice versa…or so Michelle thought. Bear in mind also that Michelle is a really, really private person, and she hates telling people personal things, although Lana was an exception. And there are a lot of things about her that even she doesn’t know either.

But nevermind about all that – let’s stick to the story.

Last night, they had a sleepover at Lana’s. Her parents are away on vacation, and they have no problem leaving the whole house to Lana to look after. She’s never caused them any trouble when they’ve gone away in the past, but Michelle can only imagine the looks on their faces when they come back and hear what just happened.

So five of them came over to Lana’s for the sleepover, because one of their friends – let’s call her Judy – got sick. It wasn’t the first time they spent the night at Lana’s, and Michelle herself went over to hang out even more often than the others, since she only lives like, two houses away.

So last night, they first decided to watch a movie, then they cooked dinner together – two of their friends love cooking. After that they decided that they wanted to play something, and someone suggested “Truth or Dare,” the classic sleepover game.

As a very private person, Michelle really hates this game, because she has to pick dare all the time. The idea of telling any secret, even to a group of close friends, is just terrifying for her.

It was okay at the start – there was nothing but harmless questions and easy tasks. Like singing a stupid song, or calling Judy to convince her Ed Sheeran was at the house with them on a surprise visit…it sure sounds dumb now, but shemanaged to sound dead serious, and Judy almost believed her! But the girls spoiled everything when they started laughing, they just couldn’t keep it in anymore.

One thing though, before she moves on to the main part of the story. Lana and Michelle have a classmate called Josh. Josh Hurley, that’s what she’ll call him here. And…thank god this is anonymous…she really, really likes him. He’s justamazing. And he lives right across the street from Lana.

They talk at school every once in a while, but it never goes further than that. Michelle believes it really could go further, but he doesn’t know anything about how she feels. No one does – except for Lana.

So there they were playing, and it was Michelle’s turn again, and of course she picked dare rather than truth. The girls were struggling to come up with a task for her, but after a few minutes Lana said that she had a great idea.

She said that Michelle had to get on the roof of her house and shout “I LOVE YOU JOSH HURLEY!” three times, as loud as she could.

Michelle still can’t believe she said it. Lana knew that she liked Josh, and she knew there was a big chance he’d hear about it sooner or later, and she knew just how embarrassed Michelle wouldbe if she told anyone else.

But at that moment she simply thought: a game is a game, let’s just get it over with. She climbed onto the roof through the bedroom window, and found a spot that looked like it was safe. It was almost midnight, so it was really dark. The girls were all standing at the window ready to film the whole thing.

Just to remind you, the phrase she had to say was “I love you, Josh Hurley.” She shouted it once, dying of embarrassment, then a second time. All of the lights in Josh’s house were off, so she was praying nobody was home. Because if they were, the whole family was going to be woken up by her yelling.

The girls were laughing and cheering. She really wanted it to be over, so she took a deep breath and shouted it out for a third time.

Lyrics:
[Intro]
Oh, this the one right here, Wicked?
Okay
Yeah, yeah
Run that back, Turbo

[Chorus]
We started off as close friends (Close friends)
Somehow you turned into my girlfriend (My girlfriend)
We used to tell each other everything (Everything)
I even went and bought her diamond rings, matching earrings
Everything was so cool (So cool)
Lately baby been actin’ so rude (Been so rude)
I don’t know what somebody told you (What they told you)
But I ain’t gon’ lie, I miss the old you

[Verse 1]
I know you remember how I would hold you
Still remember how I approached you
I think I loved you ‘fore I knew you
Know we be fuckin’ ‘fore I screwed you
Made a promise I won’t use you
Play my cards right, I won’t lose you
Got ’em tuned in like I’m YouTube
Got somethin’ on me like it’s voodoo
I’ll go nuts for you, go cuckoo, lose my cool and all
And I know that shit was wrong, I shouldn’t’ve did what I did

[Verse 2]
Just wipe your eyes and stop this cryin’
I told the truth, that I’d been lyin’
I gave you racks, I tried to buy in
I even did the unthinkable, and I’m sorry for what I did to you
Take me back, if I was you and I did what I did
I probably would, I probably wouldn’t
Take you back, if I was you and I did what I did
I probably would, I probably wouldn’t
Just wipe your eyes and stop this cryin’
I told the truth, that I’d been lyin’
I gave you racks, I tried to buy in
I even did the unthinkable, and I’m sorry for what I did to you

[Chorus]
We started off as close friends (Close friends)
Somehow you turned into my girlfriend (My girlfriend)
We used to tell each other everything (Everything)
I even went and bought her diamond rings, matching earrings
Everything was so cool (So cool)
Lately baby been actin’ so rude (Been so rude)
I don’t know what somebody told you (What they told you)
But I ain’t gon’ lie, I miss the old you

[Verse 3]
Keep our business to ourselves
The internet ain’t doin’ no help
I know I shouldn’t’ve never left
But everything I did for us
And us, I’m speakin’ on my kids
Thinkin’ ’bout this shit I did
Like how the hell I get myself involved in this bullshit?
Married to the game, I can’t make you my fiancée
Bad young boss bitch, treat her like Beyoncé
But damn what them broads say, I fucked them all the first day
And that’s why you trippin’ anyway, like when I fuck ’em I don’t pay
Even if we never speak again
I’ll make sure you’re ridin’ in the latest Benz
Keep your business all apart if you can stay out of mine
Bought a brand new Audemars, but I done ran out of time

[Chorus]
We started off as close friends (Close friends)
Somehow you turned into my girlfriend (My girlfriend)
We used to tell each other everything (Everything)
I even went and bought her diamond rings, matching earrings
Everything was so cool (So cool)
Lately baby been actin’ so rude (Been so rude)
I don’t know what somebody told you (What they told you)
But I ain’t gon’ lie, I miss the old you

This is Amy, and she’s depressed. And until recently, not even her parents believed her.

Since she became a teenager, Amy has always felt a bit…sad. But over the past few years, it has grown into something more. Until recently, she couldn’t understand what it really was. Most of the time, she felt so exhausted and miserable. Even getting out of bed was hard.

She felt like there was no point in anything. She didn’t care about her grades or her friends; it was like nobody cared about her and nothing interested her. She spent her evenings watching TV shows and crying, because the world seemed like such a bad place.

At some point she realized that she was depressed. She didn’t want to believe it at first, because nowadays everyone says they’re depressed. But she couldn’t run away from the truth any more. So she decided it was time to explain it to her parents.

She thought they would understand, or at least try to, but sadly that wasn’t the case. Amy’s dad just said, “kids are so soft nowadays, nobody was depressed back in my day”, while her mom was hardly any more helpful: “it’s all in your head, sweetie, you just have to be more positive”.

Their reactions made her even more miserable, because she couldn’t even talk to her parents. She had friends, but they clearly didn’t want to listen to her any more. She doesn’t blame them, because it was really annoying to listen to her talking about her depression all the time even for her.

She checked out some online communities on depression and people recommended that she go see a psychiatrist. She asked her parents many times, explaining how important it was to her, and eventually, they agreed, although they didn’t want to.

Amy felt hope for the first time in a long while. She went to the doctor with her parents. He was an older man, and he was kind of weird – he didn’t even look at her, and wasn’t really very interested in what she actually had to say. She explained her situation, but he kept asking her the same questions about school and stress, and in the end, he said that she was just tired because of school and needed some rest.

Amy was shocked, but her parents were basically happy with his verdict. To their credit, they really did try to make her feel better. They allowed her to skip a few days of school and have a bit of fun. Only she really didn’t want to have fun. She didn’t want to do anything except stay in her bed and cry.

After she went back to school, things got even worse. Her teachers were angry with her for not doing her homework and not paying attention in class, but she didn’t respond, so they just stopped bothering her entirely. The same thing happened with her classmates – they didn’t pay any attention to her because she always sat alone, staring out the window or reading a book or something.

At this point Amy started to believe that her parents were right, and she just had to be grateful for what she had, so she tried to start talking to people and to study a bit harder. But she just couldn’t find the strength to do it.

One day, her dad got angry with her for being ungrateful and spoiled. He said “you don’t want to talk to us, you don’t want to study! Tell me, what DO you want!?”

She stared at him, because she didn’t know what to say. She didn’t want anything. He kept berating her, and she couldn’t take it any more, and she started crying loudly. She never cried like that; it was always silent weeping in her room, but this time it was like she had a mental breakdown.

Through her tears, she said a lot of stuff like: “I’m worthless, I don’t even feel like a person, I don’t know how to do anything and I’ll never get better!” This was only a small part of all the thoughts that were inside her head, most of them were way worse.

Her parents were shocked, because this was the first time that she had revealed her real feelings to them. After a few days, her mom came into her room and said: “I talked with dad, and we believe you. What can we do for you?” For Amy, this was the first time in a while when she felt like something good happened to her. She asked them if they could try another psychiatrist. They agreed.

Amy’s new psychiatrist was younger than the previous one, and he was very attentive to her and asked a lot of questions – and this time actually listened to her answers. She told him everything she had felt throughout the past few years, and it was so liberating to finally find a person in real life who would listen to her.

Eventually, he did a few tests with her and diagnosed Amy with chronic depression. Her parents couldn’t believe it at first, but she could see how worried they were and it was a nice feeling.

IT WILL BE GIVEN A VOICE OVER BY A PROFESSIONAL ACTOR AND AN ANIMATOR WILL MAKE A VIDEO OUT OF IT!

★ Subscribe ACTUALLY HAPPENED

This is Jenny, and she feels really helpless. Most things in her life are fine but there’s just one major problem. She’s always late for EVERYTHING.

She understands that she can only blame herself for this, but she honestly doesn’t know what to do.

Being late is never a problem when you’re a kid. Your parents take you to places and then you go back home – at least that’s what it was always like for her. But the good thing was that her mom and dad always valued her independence. Her parents care for her, but at the same time they let her make her own decisions and choices, so that she learns to control her own life.

And you know what? It seems to work. She’s sixteen now, and she’s already learned to figure out a lot of stuff on her own, so moving to college (for example) won’t be a huge problem for her.

The only thing that she constantly fails at is getting to places on time.

She can’t even remember when the last time was that she managed to catch the school bus, so she usually has to take the public one. More than that, she doesn’t really remember the last time she walked to the bus stop – because every time she has to run for it.

That’s not the worst part of it all, though – it’s not even the bad part. Jenny’s problems start when she gets to school. Different teachers react to students being late in different ways, as you guys know. Some of them don’t pay much attention, some even pretend they that they didn’t notice.

But the worst thing happens on Wednesdays, when her first class is chemistry. Her chemistry teacher, Mrs, Rodney, just goes crazy when someone’s even a minute late for her class. So imagine being yelled at every time you come in after the bell. She knows it’s all her fault, but a couple of times Mrs. Rodney just refused to let her in to the room and doubled her homework for the next week! That’s a bit too much!

Once they had a drama project, and Jenny’s actually done quite a lot of acting, ever since she was a kid. She knew she was the most experienced actor in the group, so she was quite sure the teacher was going to give her the main part. And he actually was, but…guess what…she was half an hour late for the first class of the year, and he gave the main role to another girl instead. And when this was happening she was chatting to her friends in the school yard, not even realizing the class had already started.

She’s tried a lot of different things to fix it. First of all, she tried to figure out what was wrong with her. “Where do I lose so much time?” she thought. And she soon realized that it was a couple of minutes here, a couple of minutes there…and then you’re running late already. No matter how early she woke up, she still managed to lose all the time she had.

And it wasn’t only about mornings and being late for school. Every time her friends and Jenny went out, she was super-late. If they went to the movies, you could be sure that she’d be awkwardly sneaking between the rows fifteen minutes into the film.

The worst thing happened to Jenny about a month ago. Her friend Hannah and her family were moving to another state. They used to hang out a lot, along with two other friends – Jenny and Mike. So the three of them decided to see Hannah off at the airport.

They made a huge poster with their pictures and good wishes, because none of them knew when they might see her again. It was all prepared, Jenny set her alarm clock for early in the morning, and she actually woke up on time, had her breakfast…and then this THING happened again. In the blink of an eye she found herself running late to the bus stop.

Then the bus got stuck in traffic, and she lost another fifteen minutes. Jenny texted her asking where she was, but she was too embarrassed to answer, and she thought she’d still make it. Then she couldn’t find the right entrance at the airport, then there was the security check, and then…

She found Jenny and Mike standing in the departure zone, with Hannah and her parents gone. She hadn’t made it. She was late again.

She talked to Hannah afterwards, and she said that it was fine, but she knew it wasn’t. She might not see one of her best friends for years, and she had missed her chance to say goodbye.

It was devastating. But at least something good came out of it, as she finally realized that her problem was just destroying her life. She’s really working on it now. The thing she learnt recently is that if you want control over your life, you need to get stuff in order. Not just time management – everything!

She’s also thinking of getting a summer job when the school year ends, to earn some money to visit Hannah. She hopes she doesn’t get fired for being late all the time!

You all know who Lilly Singh is, right? How could you not? She’s an actress, a comedian, a huge YouTube star, and a social media celebrity of the highest degree! She also has a huge heart and believes in empowering young woman (and everybody for that matter) to be their best most powerful selves.

Lilly Singh is amazing, and we’re sure she always has been BUT before she was famous she was just a kid doing all those things kids do – hanging out with friends and family (she has lots of cousins), playing video games, and finding ways not to be bored, like watching horror movies and telling each other scary stories, and playing with each others imaginations.

When she was younger all of her cousins would go to her house to hang out with her and her sister. The parents would all head off to work and the kids would all look after each other – immigranthustle.

One day, just after their parents left, they were all piled onto the couch playing video games when the phone rang. Her older cousin answered it, said hello a few times, but nobody was there. Weird, but maybe just a wrong number, or at worst a crank call.

Lilly and her cousins got back to their video game, and had played for a little while when the phone rang again. This time another cousin answered and the same thing happened, nobody was on the other end, or at least they weren’t saying anything. It was a little scary, what kind of evil demon of a person would do that to a bunch of kids?

At that point Lilly and her cousins could have come up with some good rational reasons for the phone calls – like a wrong number, a bad connection, a telemarketer, etc. BUT that’s not what a bunch of kids home alone do, so instead they came up with a whole story about how some evil demon or person was trying to get to them and do bad things!

They decided they needed a master plan, a way to make sure their story didn’t turn out to be a scary horror story. Now, keep in mind, this was right around Christmas and they had just finished doing a Home Alone marathon.

They began by documenting all of the calls that came in and capturing every detail. This would help them come up with their plan for scaring away the evil demon, or whatever – the evil telemarketer. On day three they received more calls than usual and they felt it was definitely a sign. They brainstormed their plan.

Was it a robber? A spirit? A demon? The possibilities were endless. Their planning was interrupted when one of their cousins stopped them as said “hey, didn’t you guys hear that?” Now, Lilly hadn’t heard anything, but what was the fun of that, and, if there was some demonic Christmas Home Alone presence there with them, she didn’t want to be the first to go just because she didn’t believe it was real. She wasn’t going to be THAT kid in the horror movie. Or one of those ghost stories.

It was time to take action. They all gathered up all the utensils from the kitchen drawers and then executed their plan : lock themselves in their parents bedroom and wait it out. But before they locked themselves in the room they strategically placed three little porcelain pigs in the hallway that could warn them if something trampled that way.

Hours went by with them locked in the bedroom, pacing, sweating, stressing and terrified. But, eventually their need for Oreos overcame them so they ventured into the kitchen and felt so relieved, and silly for acting so scared and ridiculous. UNTIL they noticed that one of the little pigs had been knocked over.

They freaked out, and around the house, and then finally decided it was time to take a stand – it was either them, or the demon! They searched the entire house with their forks and butter knives ready. But of course, they found nothing.

A couple of hours later her parents returned home and all their cousins left. End of story, right? Well, they never felt anymore evil presences, and the phone stopped ringing, but, you never know.

Watch Now France vs Australia I’m Ugly And Proud Of It


★ Subscribe ACTUALLY HAPPENED

This is Doris, and she has a story to tell about her constant frustration. She’ll tell it to you straight: she’s the opposite of good-looking. That is, she’s simply ugly. It’s not that she’s an attention-seeker or anything who wants to hear things like “Oh no, Dory, you’re so pretty, don’t say that!” In her opinion, no one in their right mind would call her pretty.

Your looks are a genetic lottery, as they say. And in Doris’ case, she didn’t get a single correct number called out. Both her parents look fine, and no one knows whom she takes after. She’s also totally healthy, has no impairments or deformations, and it’s only her face that startles people. Her older brother also looks fine, just like her parents.

Doris would be happy to tell you that she’s now accustomed to seeing her reflection, but in actual fact, even now she wants to call the exorcist every time she sees herself in the mirror. However, it feels so nice that she can be humorous about it now instead of telling a dramatic story full of suffering. But she hasn’t always had this relaxed attitude towards herself. As you can imagine, over the years she’s compiled a truly golden compilation of “motivational” phrases and insults that an ugly person might receive throughout their life. When she was little, it was a bit easier to live with her looks. Toddlers normally don’t notice such things. But their parents do. She still remembers some of the comments that were expressed to her parents when they were in a play park: “Oh, it’s much more important for a girl to be nice and pleasant than to have good looks, isn’t it?” And she remembers seeing her mom’s sour expression.

Doris’ parents have always supported her. They’ve never called her a beauty, but they’ve taught her to truly understand what her strong and weak points are. That’s turned out to be very helpful during her life. Her problems with self-acceptance started when she first went to school. You know how cruel kids can be. She heard nasty comments of every kind – mocking, derogatory, and just plain offensive.

She even ended up finding some friends after all. Doris has a kind personality, and people like talking to her. But there’s always another benefit of being friends with a person like her: Doris’ pretty friends looked absolutely stunning in comparison with her. So that was her social role at school – “the ugly friend”, although that definitely sounds better than “outcast” even if it kills your dignity. Obviously, Doris thought, she wasn’t going to find a boyfriend – never ever. Her normally good spirits started to go down, and she was pretty depressed at the time.

And so, Doris was depressed. All of her efforts to improve the situation didn’t work. No one was attracted to her. But she had always done her best to deal with every situation with humor, because it’s easier to survive things by laughing than by suffering. Once, someone witty gave her the nickname “Yoda”, because – well you know, from a certain angle they looked like twins. And that’s what they started calling her at school. She thought it was somehow funny, because no one meant to offend her by calling her it, so she decided to take it to an absurd extreme: She started cosplaying Yoda! She spoke like Yoda, she called everyone “young padawan” and was always giving out wise comments. And once for Halloween she went to school dressed as and wearing makeup like master Yoda (not that she needed too much makeup, to be honest). It was an enormous success! Finally, people appreciated her good nature and started laughing with her, not at her!

That’s when she understood that maybe the situation was not so hopeless. She slowly won the hearts of her schoolmates and earned the reputation of school comedian number one. She came to the realization that people are cruel only towards those who are weak and embarrassed, and praise those who are strong and live in peace with their situation. Doris can’t blame them, that’s just how psychology works. And that’s when she thought she could find some benefits in her appearance, even if it seemed impossible. At that time, she’d had several auditions in drama schools, and had received very good feedback about her comic skill and “unusual face”. Imagine for a moment that everyone is tired of cute faces, and good actresses with non-standard looks are really valued.

So now, Doris is finally at peace with herself. After school she wants to go to an acting academy, and she likes to think that her face will be her trademark. She still looks odd, but now she’s actually proud of her looks, rather than ashamed or depressed. And that’s what she wants to tell anyone who feels embarrassed by their own peculiarities – be proud of who you are rather than ashamed, and may the Force be with you, young padawan!

Watch Now France vs Australia I Am Afraid After The Synagogue Shooting in Pittsburgh


By Bella | Subscribe: | Record your story @ or our iPhone app for a chance to get animated. Comment, like, share this story.

Bella lives in a neighborhood called Squirrel Hill in Pittsburgh. She’s grown up there, lived there her whole life, has her friends and her synagogue there, right near the Tree of Life synagogue, and it had always been a peaceful neighborhood – diverse and accepting – a really nice place to live. There were a lot of Jewish families who lived there and she could hardly remember any anti semitism ever happening around them.

But, on Saturday, October 27th, she slept in late and only woke up when her mom called to her from the other room at around eleven o’clock. She ran in to her Mom’s room and her younger sister was there and they looked awful, pale, afraid and scared. Bella didn’t know what was going on, and her mom would only whisper because she didn’t want Bella’s youngest sister to wake up. But something really, really bad was going on – you could tell from the terrified looks on her Mom and sister.

Her mom asked is she’d looked at her phone yet, if she’d seen or heard any of what was on the news. She’d heard lots of sirens in her half sleep, but they didn’t wake her – what was going on? Her mom sat her down and told her that there had been a mass shooting at a temple – the Tree of Life synagogue right there in squirrel hill.

Bella gasped and sat down hard. She was so scared, afraid, shaking and crying. She was just in shock that something like this had happened, in their neighborhood, at a synagogue that was practically right next to the one she attended. Also, the fact that it was all because of their religion, all because they were Jewish, and this scared Bella too – the ant-semitism, and all these shootings taking place everywhere.

What made the tragedy even worse was the fact that it was Shabbat, the holiest day of the week for the Jewish people — all they were doing was praying — and that morning the Tree of Life synagogue was having a baby naming for a new baby just born into their community, a special and festive and happy occasion. And an evil man full of hate and anti semitism came into their place of worship and shot and killed 11 people, including police and security guards.

When Bella and her friends returned to their religious school, hebrew school, so many of them were on edge, scared, and couldn’t quite put into words how awful and vulnerable it made them feel. Why was there anti semitism, or hate of any kind? Why couldn’t people coexist without hatred and gun violence?

After they had started their school day they had a special morning prayer service and they invited the congregation from the Tree of Life synagogue to join them. There were so many people there, mourning and praying, holding hands and supporting each other – praying for peace, and love, and for the souls of the those who passed to ascend. And they chanted and sang words of power, that they were strong and that they would not be afraid.

The Pittsburgh synagogue shooting has effected jews all over the United States and the world, and all people who enjoy feeling safe and free to worship how they choose under any religion they choose. Hopefully the families affected by this tragedy will be able to feel one day that those they lost did not die in vain and that they re-awakened the need for peace, and love, and light across the entire world.

Watch Now France vs Australia My Friends Were With Me For My Money


★ Subscribe ACTUALLY HAPPENED

This is Britney. She’s a lucky person – she comes from a very wealthy family. But she’s not here to boast. Unfortunately, everyone has their problems, and hers are no less significant than anyone else’s. Her biggest problem is finding friends, and this is the reason why.

Britney doesn’t think that she’s arrogant, or a snob, or whatever it is that people think about kids from rich families. Her dad is a very simple person, a self-made-man, and he wants his children to work their own way through life too. That doesn’t mean that they have strict limitations on using money – his belief is that they need to invest their time and effort in studying, and should work like everyone else who is not as lucky as they are. That’s why they have always lived a pretty simple life – not in some mansion, but in an ordinary house. Their dad also insisted that they go to an ordinary school, not some fancy private one.

When Britney was a child, she didn’t even notice the difference between herself and other children. They all shared the same studies and hobbies. She’s a very sociable person, so she didn’t have problems finding friends. But when she became a teenager and went to high school, she noticed that things had changed. Everyone was divided into groups and ranks – it was not just one big group of children anymore. She didn’t like the idea of classifying people, but you have to adapt in order to enjoy life.

Since she is quite easy-going, she ended up in the “celeb” group. This wasn’t her goal, of course, but she was at a new school and she just wanted to make friends. They came to her and proposed that she hang out with them – why would she say no? They seemed like really nice people. They chatted a lot about designer clothes and gadgets, and all the other things that are trendy nowadays. This was when she found out that they had somehow already learned about who she was and what family she was from – and Britney began to have doubts. She’s not a fool, and she understands that sometimes people can be guided by self-interest when choosing friends.

She started watching her new friends attentively. Her dad had taught her that you should always check people out before trusting them, even if she had never been in a situation where she’d been right to mistrust people before. But everything seemed okay. It was quite a large group of people – there were eight of them – and they all had different backgrounds. They were regular people with different personalities – that’s ok then, she thought. They spent a lot of time together, and met outside school as well, and as time passed she didn’t notice any particular interest in her family’s wealth.

When things started changing, she didn’t even notice at first. From time to time when they went out, one or two of her friends asked her to pay for their movie tickets or a coffee, and promised to give back the money. They never gave it back, and she thought it was a bit petty to remind them. Then…their ‘appetites’ started growing. Sometimes they asked her to pay for a round of bowling or a coffee for everyone. She didn’t think it was fair, but they were her friends and she thought it was shameful to quarrel over money. Britney became irritated by the situation, and started thinking: “What if they made friends with me only because of my money? What if they don’t even really like me?”

At some point, thinking these kinds of thoughts over again and again leads you to paranoia. She wanted to check if they really liked just her money or her. She already had trust issues, and thought that it would be better to be alone than with friends like that. So one day she met up with them and pretended to be all sad, saying that they had financial problems at home – that her dad had lost his business and that he had cut her pocket money drastically. She saw them exchange glances but they didn’t say anything. Everything continued as normal and she had already begun to calm down, but when they decided to go to the cinema, she asked someone to pay for her. “I’m broke”, she said, “sorry guys, I’ll give it back as soon as I can”. They exchanged glances again. Then one of her supposed friends said: “Look, we’re not as rich as you are and we can’t sponsor you, sorry. Maybe it’d be better if you go another time”.

That was it. Now she knew! How could she even think that someone could be disinterested in her family’s money! She was staring at their backs as they were walking away feeling so disappointed, and she didn’t notice that Lea was still standing by her side. She asked if Britney needed help. “Do you need to talk? I understand it can be hard”. She offered to pay for her as they went to get a coffee. She thanked Lea from the bottom of her heart, because she had restored her faith in people. They’ve been best friends ever since, and she never went back to the ‘celeb’ group.

Watch Now France vs Australia I’m A Tomboy, And No One Wants To Date Me


★ Subscribe ACTUALLY HAPPENED:

This is Jo. Actually, her name is Josephine, but you wouldn’t be able to imagine a person less suitable to be called Josephine. She’s a tomboy, and she’s proud of it. However, life as a tomboy is not as amusing as you might imagine. She’s faced a lot of problems, and she wants to tell you about them.

Jo had trouble communicating with other girls right from her early childhood. She remembers one time when a large group of children had gathered in one place for a party or something, and her mom gently pushed her towards the other girls and said, “go play with the dolls, make friends with someone!” She diligently started moving dolls here and there and listening to boring talk about girly problems, but all the while she kept looking at the boys, who were playing something thrilling, laughing and doing their boyish stuff. She was so envious that at some point she just silently stood up and joined them. That was the moment when the fun started for her.

Things didn’t improve as the years went by. Jo was always attracted to the world of boys, and all of her friends were boys as well. She felt at ease when she talked to them, and felt that she understood their problems and their way of thinking better. Whereas when she was around girls, she was totally clueless. Their problems were hard for her to follow, especially when they complained about boys.

Jo had to adapt her looks to her lifestyle as well. When she went out with her friends, they always did something active, like skateboarding or exploring abandoned buildings or climbing trees. For these kinds of things, you need to dress in a practical way. She found out that jeans and hoodies are much more comfortable in this respect than typical girls’ clothes, which she had always hated in any case. And that is how she has dressed her whole life. For Jo, it was always a tragedy when they made some formal visit and she needed to dress “properly”, as people would call it. A cute dress, shiny shoes, a neat hairdo… ugh. As you can probably imagine, phrases like “wear skirts, be more feminine, you’re a girl” were the things she kept hearing time and again, until at one point her parents just gave up.

It wasn’t that Jo felt she was ugly or anything, and that being a tomboy was her way of gaining confidence. She actually thinks she’s quite cute, and when she’s forced to be a girly girl she looks no worse than her peers. For her, being a tomboy is a lifestyle, and she’s happy with that. The problem was that some time ago, she’d noticed that her friends had started dating.

One of the things that people were often mistaken about was the belief that because Jo was a tomboy, she must be gay. But she’s actually attracted to boys, not girls. Ironically, she actually gets a lot of backtalking from girls who say that she’s just trying to get attention from all the boys around her. She’s never taken this seriously, because she’s never had THAT kind of attention from the boys. Which is actually the core of her problem.

Yes, she’s seeking her first romance. She has lots of boys around her. So what’s the problem, you might ask. The problem is that they don’t really see her as a girl! They know she’s a girl, of course, but they don’t want to date her, because who would date a bro? Once, there was a boy she liked, and she thought it would be wise to approach him and ask if he wanted to go out with her. And guess what – he just laughed at her! He wasn’t mean or anything, it was more something like “Sorry bro, I don’t see you as a GIRL”. Seeing the look on her face, he corrected himself: “I mean, THAT kind of a girl”. Oh thanks, now that’s much better!

This was the first time when being a tomboy had a negative effect on her life. She even tried to put on make up and a dress, but felt really weird and the boys just looked at her strange as well. She gave up and lost hope. It seemed like it was a price that she had to pay to keep the comfortable and amusing life of a tomboy. She became a bit melancholic looking at all those happy couples, and felt that something was missing from her life for the first time.

One day she was invited out to go skateboarding, but she wasn’t in the mood so she just sat there, watching her friends and thinking her sad thoughts. One of her oldest friends soon came over to sit with her and asked why she was so sad. She didn’t want to lie, so she explained everything as it really was – that no one wanted to date her because no one considered her a potential girlfriend. “Don’t cry”, he said, “I’ll go on a date with you!” She refused out self-respect. “I don’t need charity”, she said. Suddenly, he became very serious and said that he really wanted to. And so she accepted. Accidentally, she had made the same mistake all her friends had made with her – she hadn’t considered his feelings, because you don’t go on dates with buddies. Well, she was mistaken.

Watch Now France vs Australia My Parents Are Nomads And I’m So Tired


★ Subscribe ACTUALLY HAPPENED:

This is Elaine, and she’s very tired. She almost certainly doesn’t have the worst problem you’ve heard about here. She still has both her parents, lots of friends, and good health. So what’s the big deal, you might ask? Well, the point is that her family has moved between 10 towns in 3 years, and now she just wants to have a rest!

Elaine ought to say a couple of words about her parents. They’re really cool, they’re funny and open-minded, they let her do anything she wants – essentially, they’re more like friends than parents to her. As far as she’s aware, before getting married they lived quite an interesting life, traveling the world as backpackers, living in tents and campers. When her mom got pregnant, they decided to get married and settle down in one place, which seemed like the right decision. Despite their hippie lifestyle, they come from rich families and both have quite a good education, so it wasn’t hard for them to find good jobs.

Ironically, Elaine is the complete opposite of her parents. She doesn’t like change, and she doesn’t like to move around a lot. She likes it when her friends and family are by her side, and she enjoys doing the same things every day – it gives her a feeling of safety. Sometimes, her parents laugh and say that she seems to be someone else’s child rather than theirs. Elaine herself sometimes even thinks that she’s a far more serious person than they are, but of course she still loves them a lot and can’t imagine better parents.

But there’s one thing that drives her crazy. Three years ago, her mom gave birth to her baby brother, and her dad got a new, better-paid job. The difference was that he had to move a lot from town to town, staying no more than 3-6 months in each place. Mom and dad were of course delighted by this turn of events – they would have the chance to return to their youth and live the nomadic lifestyle they adore the most. But Elaine was terrified. They couldn’t just let dad go off while the rest of the family remained in one place – being separated from your loved ones even for 3 months is too long. So they would have to follow him everywhere he went.

Elaine remembers packing her bags, and just crying – she was leaving behind everything that she loved so much – her friends, grandparents, everything. But her mom has always known how to comfort her effectively: “Don’t cry sweetie,. You’ll get to see the whole country, and if you’re lucky even the whole world! Life will be so interesting, and we’ll always be together!” Her mom won her over, and off they went into the world.

They were in city #1. Elaine went to a new school; she tried to socialize with new people; found a couple of youth clubs to join and all in all managed to establish a sense of regularity to her life once more. But as soon as she started enjoying it – ta-daaam! They were on the move again. She found herself crying and packing her bags again.

Any child would find this lifestyle tough, let alone a home bird like Elaine. First she tried her best to adapt. Then, she was desperate to leave. Then she became passive, and at some point didn’t even bother to talk to people in the latest school she found herself in – they would be temporary friends for her anyway. Naturally, her grades went down. At some point, Elaine fell into a kind of depression, preferring to stay home and not talk to anyone. Funnily enough, her friends list on social media was overflowing while she in reality had no one to talk to. Each new request from her parents to pack the bags now made her obey passively, and there were no longer any tears. Her mom became worried, and asked what was going on.

Elaine had been keeping it all inside for far too long. She burst into tears and started shouting that she couldn’t handle being a nomad anymore, that she wanted to go to university but her grades were hopelessly low, that she didn’t have a single close friend to talk to and that generally, she was scared to get close to people because she knew in advance that leaving them would be painful. Her mom looked puzzled. Can you imagine that it didn’t even occur to her parents that she might be unhappy? But for Elaine, it was so freaking obvious.

That’s how her parents made the hard decision to send her back to her grandparents to allow her to improve her grades at school, regain her social life, and all in all calm down emotionally. After all, it’s way better this way for everyone, even if she misses them a lot. The only thing she regrets is that she didn’t speak up and express her true feelings earlier, because she lost 3 years to suffering when she could have just talked to her parents and found a compromise.

Watch Now France vs Australia I Don’t Like My Parents Because They Don’t Accept Who I Am


By Buddy | Ready to “wear it out loud?” Merch store open, SHOP NOW: | Subscribe: | Record your story @ or our iPhone app for a chance to get animated. Comment, like, share this story.

Buddy never really liked his parents, and they never truly got along. They argued and disagreed and butted heads over almost everything. They didn’t see eye-to-eye on politics, to religion, to lifestyle and how to raise good healthy happy kids.

Buddy is an atheist, while his parents are very devout Muslims. Buddy is very liberal, while his parents are very conservative. And, Buddy is also unapologetically gay, while his parents, not surprisingly, are extremely homophobic.

But, even though on the inside it was really clear that he didn’t get along with his parents, he was never very public or vocal about his disagreements with his parents.He still needed a roof over his head, and food to eat, and money in his pocket, and he was afraid that if he shared who he really was and what he really believed too strongly they would kick him out of the house, maybe even disown him.

Because of that, he formed what looked like a good relationship with his parents, but it was totally fake and artificial – on the inside, he just didn’t get along with them. They saw him as being practically perfect, a good and trustworthy kid, but Buddy saw that his parents were really flawed.

His mom liked to hold grudges, was very quick to judge people, and liked to enforce really old fashioned gender roles, like boys should do yard work and take out the trash and that girls only belonged in the kitchen and were destined to become subservient housewives. And his father was so invested and distracted by his work that he never formed and real bonds with his children.

He was also upset at the way his four sisters were treated. His parents wouldn’t allow his sisters to have any friends over. They weren’t allowed to have phones, or do any extra curricular activities, or drive once they reached the age where they could legally get their licenses.

And it was even worse with Buddy, especially when he tried to come out to them and tell them he was gay – twice. The first time, his parents begged him to date girls because they saw his coming out as a real threat to them. The second time he tried they just threw out a slew of insults and homophobic falsehoods ranging from the idea that gay people were in fact mentally ill, to the idea that it was a simple choice and he was just making the wrong one. They threatened to disown him and told him he would be a failure in life unless he “fixed himself.”

This all made him so unhappy and he imagined that he would be under the control of his parents for the rest of his life. So, he felt he had to continue to pretend to be the perfect little straight Muslim boy in the house, dating girls and praying and the rest. He didn’t think much of it, had been doing it pretty much his whole life, but when he finally confided in his friends they saw it for what it was, miserable and very, very unhealthy. They asked him to imagine what he would be and how he would feel if he was far enough away from them that they couldn’t watch his every move, and judge and control him.

That was a turning point for him and, realizing his parents were more like prison guards than anything else, he thought of the farthest place he could go without them having a negative impact on him and still be successful and thrive as a young gay man.

After doing a little bit of research he concluded that California would be the best place for him — a thriving LGBT community, a ton of diversity and acceptance, and on the other side of the country from his toxic family life and parents. So, he applied to a few schools in California and, was accepted to attend UCLA! It was one of the happiest moments of his life.

His parents were hesitant about it at first, because of how far away it was, but they were happy to have him go to such a highly acclaimed school – that’s mostly what they cared about.

Since moving to Los Angeles Buddy has never been happier. He is part of a really diverse community with amazing friends, endless support, and a great education. Even though he returns home on Holidays and has to pretend, just like he used to, he is so happy to be out of that toxic house and on his own.

His next wish is for his sisters, that they will recognize the truth about their parents, follow in his footsteps, and escape!

★ Subscribe ACTUALLY HAPPENED:

This is Johnny, and he’s going to tell you a story about a disastrous fire that destroyed his family home and forced him to change his outlook on life.

When he was just 13, Johnny’s family lived in a small but beautiful house. They had good relationships and loved each other, and also, they loved all the things they had there.

It may sound weird to use the word “love” when it’s about things, but there’s no other way to effectively describe it. For example, Johnny’s books, his gaming console and the games for it, his clothes and old toys – all of that stuff really mattered to him. One glance at any one of the things he owned could fill him with warm memories of a particular time.

Those things helped him to cope with his problems and to escape from his ordinary life.

“One day, when Johnny came home from school, he discovered that something terrible had happened. His family home was on fire, and there were firefighters trying to put the blaze out, but it was already too late – there was nothing that could be done to save it. The firefighters explained that it wasn’t their fault – it had something to do with faulty wiring, and they couldn’t have done anything to prevent it.

It’s weird, but it’s hard to process something like that – you don’t immediately start to think about it like it’s a real thing with consequences. You need time to get your head around it.

Johnny and his family didn’t have much time to be sad. They had to find a new temporary place to live, and to talk to different officials and sign documents.

And only then, when they were alone in their small temporary apartment on the outskirts of town, everything started to sink in. They had lost so much. Johnny would never see his old toys or childhood drawings again, and all his favorite books and games had been destroyed. It’s not like he had owned a lot of things, but they were important to him.

And his parents didn’t feel much better – their days consisted of endless planning, like what to do next and how to get back to a normal life. Maybe they would sell the family car, start using the bus, and try to get more money for a new house. Everything that formed part of Johnny’s hobbies had been destroyed. He felt a strange mix of fear, boredom, and sadness…

And then, his parents started fighting. Looking back on it, Johnny understands now that they were nervous and tired, but at the time he wanted to run away from it all, he didn’t want to hear it. But you can’t help seeing it when you have only one room to live in.

Eventually, he grew tired of just boiling in this soup of anger and despair, so he went outside to do…something! He couldn’t see his friends because they were too far away from him. So he had to improvise.

He climbed some trees, went for a walk near the river, drew a map of everything around him. For a few hours, he completely forgot about all the misfortunes his family and he had had to endure, and had fun the same way he did when he was a little boy. Eventually, Johnny got to know the other kids in the area, and funnily enough, they thought he was very cool after telling his story…

But he still felt quite sorry for his parents, who had to go to work and buy him food and solve other problems. He asked if he could start working himself and help out a bit, but honestly, how much can a 13-year-old boy really earn?

Johnny felt useless, and he didn’t like it. He wanted to do something.

Before he enjoyed his world of games and books, and he never let anyone into it. Now, this place where he lived had become his new escape from his problems. Suddenly, he thought to himself – maybe my parents also need something like this? Sure, it won’t magically solve all our problems, but perhaps if they saw how beautiful this place is and had just one happy day, it would make it a bit better for them?

So one day, he gave his parents a map he had made earlier and proposed to go on a tour of the area. His dad was very reluctant, but his mom liked the idea, and so eventually, they agreed. As they walked through the streets, he saw smiles on their faces for the first time in a long time. His dad even tried to climb a tree with him, but he wasn’t very successful!

After this, they slowly started to rebuild their family. They saw how beautiful their new home was, and decided to try to buy a house there. They told him that he could help by getting good grades (typical parents). Three years have passed since then, and they finally have a new place and new things to love. But they don’t rely on material possessions for happiness so much now.

From all of this, Johnny learned that while things are important, it’s more important to be a strong and interesting person no matter what. His dad later said, “you know, I’m glad it happened to us, because it made us so much stronger.” And Johnny agrees.
