There is so much I want to do and lately it just feels like there is not enough time. Therefore, whenever I do something I have been wanting to experience, I get this immense feeling of accomplishment.

On Halloween I was finally able to go play some Paintball all thanks to my friend Eufalis. I went to Outdoor Xtreme in Hatfield, PA. I was so excited because this is something that I have been wanting to do.
From the moment we arrived everything was awesome. We had a great group of people, we ended up getting extra paintballs (thanks to the generosity of a kindhearted woman,) and the weather was perfect! (not too hot but cold enough to be able to layer up and feel good)
Let me just say that the paintball gun is heavier than it looks! My arms were sore by the time we were done. It felt like I worked out for three hours straight. At first, I had some gun issues, my gun had no air and then my paintballs kept getting stuck. Needless to say, that for my first game I was out before I even got shot. For the rest of the games I was locked and loaded. There was so much adrenaline running through me!
My favorite game was our last game. We went against a group of kids and they had no mercy! Clearly pros at the age of 7! I got shot all over my back and arm. It was hilarious because they went in there ready to win (that’s the mentality we should always have.) Surprisingly, the pain wasn’t as mortifying as some people make it seem. All my hits felt like a rubber-band snapping my skin really hard.
If this experience taught me anything is to not be scared of something different and to always face it ready to win it over. We don’t know what we may like until we actually try it.
