Trying new things

One thing I wanted to do more this year was try new things: New food, new sports, new places, new activities….

I felt that it would improve my life in little ways, and I also recently turned 20 and realised there’s loads of stuff out there I’ve never done, loads of places I’ve never been to, so much food I’ve never tried…..

My most recent new activity to try was paintballing, or ‘painballing‘ as it should be called. (see what I did there 😉 )

It was definitely something new and different. I got to roll around in the mud (so fun!), shoot balls of paint at people and run around the woods, but it was painful!

You do get protective headgear and vests so it only hurts if your hit anywhere else.

Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoyed it! 🙂 And think I’d go again, once my bruises have healed.

It was definitely and experience! I fell over so many times (but it was muddy so it was fun) and I even managed to hit one of my own team in the back (sorry about that Jimmy).

For anyone who’s never been I’d recommend going.

However if you don’t like pain, don’t go. You might be able to scrape by avoiding the flying paint but unless your very quick and very good at hiding it’s probably not possible.

Any other new things you recommend that I try? x
