Now that I’ve got your attention, this post has nothing to do with chemistry between two people or any of that kinda crap.
This is entirely based on our Chemistry class in school. Its chemistry, so it was supposed to be boring. No surprise there.
Note : This post contain many events that were kept as secret to the outside world until now. You should be privileged to be a part of this revealing.
Note : We used to write notes like this in our chemistry note books!
So these chemistry classes were the most boring class of my life, at first. But then we found some creative ways to make the class more fun and entertaining. So much fun that we started longing for a Chemistry class.
There is always a main activity and some sub activities. First lets talk about the main activity. For the girls, Its the love letter writing. That’s where all these started. I should take a moment to thank those classes for making me who I am today- a Blogger! You throw a bunch of teenage girls to a boring class and get them talking. Eventually they’ll all get to one topic- Love! Well, not Love exactly but Crushes. I had an awful lot of crushes those days! More about my crushes some other day.
I can proudly say that I started it. I write letters to my friends. Not as me, but I imagine how their crushes would write to them. It could be Actors, musicians, Sports personalities, or even the boy from a next class! I got to read a bunch of those letters I wrote, last day, and Boy, was I talented! Thanks to my friend for still cherishing it. 🙂
Now lets get to the main activity of the boys. Give them a chalk or a pen, and they’ll create a world full of graffiti. Its like art, but on chairs and walls. You can even expect 3D images on theirs books. I’ve seen some of those and I should say, It was very Creative. 😀
“Lets play Dumb Charades!” In every boring situation, one of us would break the silence and shout out this sentence. Dumb Charades is a word guessing game. During the class, its played among the girls. In the break, it is usually Girls Vs Boys. That was fun.
In a class you can do a million things to do to irritate the person sitting in front of you. Some of those brilliant things include writing with chalk on the chair or on the shirts and Kicking your best friends chair in class But when he/she looks back, you act totally oblivious like you have NO idea what’s going on.
And my favorite, crushing chalks and placing it on the chair and waiting for an unfortunate person to sit on it.
The person in front of you is like a Christmas tree waiting for its decoration. Tying a small rope on the back of another person’s pants to make it look like a tail was common those days. If the person in the front row is the curly haired boy, expect a lot of decorations with the most unusual things, on his hair. 😀
Throwing chalks and paper planes were some of the less evil things we did.
An the end of all the work, It wouldn’t be a total surprise to see at least some of them sleep like a baby.
Boys have competitions on, who can walk the farthest when the the teacher turns to write on the board.
One of my friend told me that they used to throw water balloons at each other during class. I don’t believe that. But then again, If you can do all the above said things, Anything is possible.
But the more fun is during the Chemistry lab. Titration experiments was the one I love. We did a LOT of titrations. I don’t remember much of what we did in the lab, except that it had something to do with pipettes and burettes and that some chemical we used to do the experiments used to stink like hell.! At the end of our experiments, the teacher would leave the lab and would tell us to clean all the beakers, test tubes etc that we used and to keep it in its place. That’s when the water fight begins. It sure gets wild. 😉
Thanks to our Chemistry Teacher for being so generous and letting us make a lot of memories for us to cherish our whole life. 🙂
And now not a day goes by when I don’t think about these happenings.
- Waiting for the single P.T. period of the week.
- Chasing each other during the intervals.
- So many hands in one lunch box.
- The birthdays.
- The morning assembly.
- Class tours.
- Annual days.
- Christmas, New year and valentine’s day.
If I could have one wish now, I would wish for that days to come back.
