My paintballing experience | CharlotteBehappy




So recently I went paintballing for the first time! 
We went to a place called Mayhem Paintballing which I believe is in Theydon Bois

https://www.facebook.com/MayhemPaintballGames?fref=ts That is their facebook page if you want to check it out

We took the tube, central line, to Theydon Bois and from there we took a bus to the actual site.  As I go to an all girls school, seriously, the girls went crazy over the boys (especially one called Alex - I think they got pictures with him, and autographs, and he gave them a fake number which they then called). 


We then got kitted up in what seemed like a bullet proof vest, a military onsie type thing and then a weird little belt. We also got some rather fetching goggles which makes your voice sound weird. We got out guns and we went on the first course. We just had to shoot as many people on the other team as possible. Basically. I was shot in the head, right in my parting (with a very greasy paint which actually made my hair v soft once I washed it), and now I have a massive bump on my head. I was also the FIRST one out. I'm not going to lie, it hurt like fuck to get hit, especially on a non-protected area of my body but it started to go down almost immediately. Now it only hurts when I touch it. Then we played on the same field and someone ON MY OWN TEAM shot me in the arm, and now I have a lovely bruise. It was really hot and my first reaction was that I did NOT like paintballing.


That field looked like this

However we then went onto a different field, with different opponents and I really enjoyed it! It was like capture the flag, and two friends and I, hid on the outside silently waiting for an enemy to come round the side. We did really well! We didn't get shot, and we got to shoot my science teacher (woo!). We worked really well as a team and we won!
We then tried the same technique when we did that match again and I was shot in the back (put apparently it didn't burst!), but it was really fun anyway.

The final field was really fun! I ran out of ammo sadly, but again it was fun shooting everyone. Also the 'heartthrob' Alex was trying to help our team, and my friend was quite pleased that he held her hand as he ran with her to some hay in front (rolls eyes). 

So it was a very fun day, and if you stop worrying about getting shot it's really enjoyable. I'd definitely do it again but maybe not for a while. I can tick this off my bucket list and let's see... Laser tag next!?

Song lyrics | CharlotteBehappy




So I basically have not been motivated to do this but yay day 10 is finally here

Here are some songs I wrote when I was in Primary school and I hope these are funny or interesting to read (cringe at me)


The album was called 'The best of 'the best'' and these are the songs:

1. bigger Feelings
2. How
3. Start a fresh
4. What's....? - Single
5. blossem
6. or else
7. I'm dying
8. hanging there - single
9. Not understandable
10. Only when (you hold me) - Single
11. What do you want
12. fallen warrior - single
13. closed eyes - single
14. still asleep
15. get up everybody

I'm going to keep the grammar exactly the same as it was when I wrote this and if it's not understandable I'm going to write what it would mean in normal English in brackets. Also, I seemed very proud of the song 'I'm dying' which is a song I orginally wrote for the Tragic Lemons but obviously I wanted to use this for my solo career. I'm not going to be including it in this post as it's in my last post.


Bigger Feeling.


When I was younger

you could break my heart like that (click)
but now
it's much different
it takes alot more (crash)
even a house fallin'
just like that
won't break my heart
that easily

chorus: 'cause I got bigger feeling

I can still here you pleading
cause I got bigger feelins
I can still hear you screeching scratching
but I've got big-big-bigger badder feelings

you won't find me pleading 'cause of

my bigger feelings
life has made a turn since I got it, that hit
that turned everything around all
hearts and my crown so I'm not to depressed
and you know why (x3)

Chorus x2


Hey boy come and get me! Come get me x4


Chorus


how


I would have thought

that you would be thebibi last one on my mind
It's were it came
out just like that of mouth my big big mouth
bit: but you don't want me?
no
but you don't need me?
no
but what are you doing still standing here

Chorus
Say...
How
How it happened
how it kept on going
how it kept on going to the very top

Every love I've had

what happens when you vavy (idk what that's supposed to mean) x2

bit

chorus

I can't believe it I really can't believe it x3

Chorus x2

Start afresh


Your life

My life

but is it
that hard
to start afresh

I hear you ask

Chorus: Start afresh

go as far as you need go
even Change your name,
the colour of your hair,
Move to another world
just start afresh

The amount of fights we've been through

The mates, the dates the mad mistakes (I totally stole this from that mates dates book)
What makes you crazy
what make you at night stay awake
C'mon just think in your head

Chorus

start afresh, oohh oohh (x6)

Chorus (x2)

bit: but what is that they say me? that makes me embarresed and go a shade of
green

Chorus: They say

I've been dumped once when I was young
Oh you'll regret it boy

Chorus: so Blossem Blossem Blossem boy

Or else


I used to do whatever you said

To say when I thought we were through
We used to have such fun times
but now your such a sour lime
you used to say

Chorus: or else

but that book on the shelf (this is in the tune of 'our house')
or else
get rid of all your health (originally I'd written 'don't act like an elf' and then crossed it out)
or else
don't be your self
or else

I was so easy then

Thats how it should always be
Wait a will (while) ad you'll see

Chorus


Do this Do that or else (x4)


Chorus x2


I'm dying


Hanging there - single


You left me so sudden

but you were like thunder

you know I wasn't playing a 
stupid game

Chorus: You left me hanging there
with the stupid Mayor
to help me out of here
wait he's not very near
oh you left me hanging there
I don't really care (for your love)

I don't cry every night

I stay strong with all my might
I'm feel happy now stronge now
But what is it that makes me fall?

Chorus


I do what I do I do what I please

I don't care how much you plead
You can't join with me! x3

Chorus x2


Isn't understandable


There is something on this planet

that makes us wanna ' scream
we wanna be free
with no rules we'll get better at it
bit: try we'll try to hit the top
but if one of us stumbles we are sure to FLOB (flop)

Chorus: This just isn't understandable

Its just isn't clear
Out minds are full of fog that's comin out our ears
A bit of lullabye you would
of thought would ease our minds
but it Stops imagination + skips ahead of time

Peace should be easy

And it should be easy to find
the generous and caring ones
The ones called the loving kind

bit

chorus
bit

Hope is excellence

Excellence is all ways here
try and try and you'll get near

Chorus


It's only when you hold me - Single


There is a feeling

There is a heart bear
that kicks in all the vibes
bit: It take my breath away
likes it ment to last forever but

Chorus: Its Only when you hold me
It's only when I feel your touch
It's only when you hold me
It's then my feelings errupt
Can you feel it you should feel it now
hold on only when hold on

It makes me wanna scream and shout
the hatred goes away forever
the happiness alout (aloud)

bit

chorus

Its just to easy to let go

Its easy to let your feelings show
oh oh oh oh oh oh
bit
Chorus

What do you want?


What do you people keep looking at

Theres nothing here to see
Why do you people make me feel self consious
I wanna be free! o
Mind your own buisness
havene't you got other things to do
your eyes are on me
stuck with super glue

Chorus

What do you want?
What do you need from me?
Can you stop being rude for 
a second of your life
Can you close your eyes
and move on by

Can't you start a new topic of
conversation
It's like you people are coming
from an invasion
of staring and glaring
can't you take your eyes of 
me!
Chorus

Songs I wrote when I was 8 | CharlotteBehappy




Me, and my sister and her friend were in a girl group called 'the tragic lemons' and I have a book full of some amazing songs we wrote. I thought I'd share them with you today.

The Tragic Lemons


We're so bitter we're not sour anymore

All our bones ache (ache) 
We feel so sore (sore)
Boys are dumb (dumb)
Boys ain't cool (cool)
Boys are smelly (smelly)
Girls should rule....

Chorus
We're the tragic lemon
You'd be surprised
Tragic lemons
We are really wise
So leave us alone we're the tragic lemons

Ooh boys used to rule our world 

But now they make us hurl
We've grown up since then
It's time to get revenge
No more playground games
I'm just taking it cool
No more 'baby' or 'honey'
It's good to rule....

Chorus


We're the tragic, tragic, tragic lemons x3


Chorus


Foxtrot (next to the title it says 'best song')


I gotta get it on, get it on downtown

I gotta get it on, get it on right now
I don't need you anymore
I don't need you to get sore
I know that it can't be easy, easy

Chorus

If you want to be sassy (sassy)
If you wanna be cool (cool)
Then you better get a partner (partner)
And get your feet on the dancefloor (dancefloor)
and foxtrot!

Everybody loves, everybody needs, everybody wants... YOU! (repeat)

I don't need you anymore
I don't need you to get sore
I know that it can't be easy

Chorus x2

Foxtrot!!

Freaky Cheaky Monkeys (I didn't write this one actually)


I gotta get up get up for the first day, first day of the week

banana banana banana banana banana banana
we're the freaky cheaky monkeys
and we're coming to town today
We're the freaky cheaky monkeys and we're coming to town today
We're the freaky cheaky monkeys and we're coming to town today
banana banana banana banana
The freaky cheaky monkeys
BANANA!!!

What are friends for?


Chorus

What are friends for? What are friends for?
We don't need boys anymore
We're friends forever, we're friends forever
we won't break up cause we're friends forever

When my mates left me I felt real sad

But then I relaised I was being real bad
So I found out I really needed them
And that I could of been nicer to them
So need you back and they came back

Chorus


When my gang kicked me out

all I did was shout
I knew it was bad how I acted
and it had gone worse how I reacted
but they came back
and no I'm not sad

Chorus


When you're in your ups and downs with your friends

It will be alright in the end
so figure out all your problems
and go have a good time

Chorus


I'm dying


Why has the world gone cold? 

Why do I feel so old?
Let me out of this dark place
Let me out of this mean chase
Why has the world gone numb?
Or is it just me being dumb?

Chorus

I'm dying
So sad and lonely
I'm crying
So skinny and boney
What did I do to deserve this?
This was a cold, close, miss
I'm dying

I think I'm threw

I'm turning blue
I felt so young
thats why I'm singing this song
I hate not knowing
Why you're not showing

Chorus


I'm dying, I'm dying, I'm dying, I'm dying (repeat)


Chorus x2

Don't die!

I wish I was famous


Boom chica Boom boom chica

'I wish we were famous'
'She wanna be famous hahaha'
I wish we were famous 
Everyone new our name
You'd her our song on the radio
and you'd know we weren't some silly game

All those bullys in our school 

Would look up to you!
'You mean us!'
'Fine'

I wish we were famous

A gazzilion albums sold
I wish I was famous
As rich as platinum and gold
When we walk down the re carpet
Our picture is in the paper
I wish we were famous
I wish we were famous
I wish we were famous...

I should be a song writer right? 

Pretty good for an 8 year old if you ask me..

I also have a book full of song lyrics I wrote for when I broke out of the group and became a solo artist so let me know if you'd want to see them




Emetophobia | CharlotteBehappy




So I have a phobia called 'emetophobia'. According to Wikipedia Emetophobia is an intense irrational fear or anxiety pertaining to vomiting.

So here's some stuff about it:


What's the difference between a fear and a phobia?

A fear is a normal emotion everyone experiences and it is easy to overcome. A phobia is an anxiety disorder and is uncontrollable and hard to overcome. Phobias cause distress and can stop people from living their everyday life. 

How does emetophobia affect someone?

Emetophobics can go to great lengths to avoid people who may be sick or to go to places where it's likely someone will be sick (eg. a bar, or a nightclub). Many emetophobics will endure nausea than be sick and it's likely they may be nauseous for hours whereas another person will be sick within twenty minutes of being nauseous. Those with emetophobia can also suffer from anxiety, depression, superstitious behaviour linked to OCD,  anorexia, fear of flying, agoraphobia and panic attacks. Emetophobics can fear children for fear of germs. They can also delay pregnancy just for fear of morning sickness. It's likely emetophobics will avoid travelling for fear of others being sick. Many emetophobics will have rituals when it comes to preparing and cooking food. They will check the freshness frequently (eg the expiration date), and wash the food a lot to avoid potential sickness - food poisoning. Eating out is also avoided.

Anorexia?

It's quite common for emetophobia to lead to anorexia. In times where there are vomiting bugs, or viruses going around many emetophobics will starve themselves to avoid throwing up. Many emetophobics can have a fear of food (cibophobia) and then this fear can lead to anorexia nervosa. 

Do they fear vomiting themselves or other people vomiting?

Usually both. Habits of an emetophobic can include:
-Avoiding sick people
-Avoiding eating to much or getting full
-Compulsive cleaning - washing hands etc
-Compulsive expiration date checking
-Avoiding travel
-Not being able to sleep unless hungry
-Being nervous or anxious when going to public places

What causes emetophobia?

There is no specific cause but many causes can be from traumatic childhood experiences such as someone shouting at you for vomiting, or having a bad winter stomach bug. Some sufferers were abused as children - sexually or physically. Sometimes it can be due to lack of control as in situations involving someone being sick or being sick yourself, it is very hard to control. 

What are the treatments?

There are two main treatments:
Medication - anxiety medication to help to keep patients at ease. However many patients did not want to take the pills in fear of side effects (feeling nauseated).
Exposure - The video tape method shows those with the phobia someone vomiting. This method is the most effective but many patients do not want to take this method in fear of having a panic attack.

Emetophobia is the 6th or 7th most common phobia so next time you're watching a programme  and an actor or real person is sick, just think of the possible people who could possible be panicking or otherwise due to it. Bye :)
