The Charlie Charlie Challenge...

ADashOfBecks here!

I'm going to talk about something a little different today, the 'Charlie Charlie Challenge' most of you probably know what the Charlie Charlie Challenge is, but if you don't, it is when you get a piece of paper and split it into 4 sections and write 'yes' on the top right and bottom left and 'no' on the top left and bottom right, then across the lines you drew to split the page into segments you place one pencil on the horizontal line and one other pencil balanced on top of the horizontal one pointing vertically, then you ask 'Charlie Charlie are you here?' and the balanced pencil is supposed to turn to 'yes' if he is there.
You may be wondering who 'Charlie' is, and the answer is that he is supposedly a Mexican demon, or a child with red eyes who was killed. After you have finished asking him questions, you have to ask him 'Charlie Charlie can I/We leave?' if the pencil turns to no, you have to keep playing until he finally agrees, but if he says yes you may leave. If you don't ask him this and just leave the rumour is that he haunts you forever.

My Experience

 Me and a group of my friends (10 or 11 of us in total) tried this challenge out at school on our break time, we did it outside, under a shelter but it was not windy and we were all shielding the board/paper anyway. To begin we classically asked 'Charlie Charlie are you here?'... No reply. So we tried multiple times... nothing. In the end we were all joking about and I said 'Charlie Charlie are you a dickhead?' (sorry for the language) and to our surprise it turned to yes! Some people got scared and some were laughing until someone owned up to blowing the pencil. We continued to trial it and asked it again 'Charlie Charlie are you here?' This time it actually turned to yes and nobody could have blown it as we made sure that no one could have. We all freaked out a little, but gave in and continued asking him different questions, most of which got no replies, he only answered to me when I spoke... Eventually we all gave up and asked if we could go, numerous times it didn't work but eventually it turned to yes, so we snapped the pencils and ripped up the paper.

All of what I just said, was 100% true, however there is a logical explanation for the whole thing!


You have to balance a pencil on top of another pencil, and this isn't how pencils should naturally be so gravity forces it to move! The pencils have to be so finely balanced on top of each other that even the slightest little breath or unbalanced surface will push it around! It's as simple as that! Once you think into it it isn't scary at all!
And as for things happening if you don't say goodbye, it is just your imagination, if you think hard enough about something you can trick yourself into thinking things are happening or something is true, but its your eyes and mind playing tricks on you! Don't worry!

That's all I have for today! It would really help me if you suggested some fun blog posts to do in the comments as I don't know what you guys would like? It'd be super helpful!
Anyway! Thanks for reading this post, if you liked it don't forget to let me know in the comments and if you're not already, follow me! It really, really helps!

Much Love,

Little Weekend Away!

ADashOfBecks here!

Today, I thought I'd do a little blog post about what I have been up to, as it has been half term last week in England, so most school kids have had a week off and went back to school yesterday! 
Anyway, During last week I didn't do very much. I went to a party, and was with my Nan for the rest of the week. Apart from on Friday..
On Friday my Sister, her Boyfriend, her Boyfriend's Mum and her Boyfriend's Sister Went on a little road trip! I got picked up at 3:00 PM and we went on our way to Bristol to do a little bit of shopping (I have no pictures from Bristol unfortunately) at Cribbs Causeway, a huge shopping centre, or mall if you are American. There are quite a wide range of shops, and I highly recommend going down to do some shopping if you live near there or are passing!
After this, we took another little travel to Weston-Super-Mare, which, if you are unsure, is a little seaside town just down from Bristol. It isn't very 'happening' as you might say, but it is a nice day out to go and get some fish and chips and sit on the pier or at the sea front if it is sunny, and maybe have a paddle in the sea!

After we'd been to Weston we headed to our Hotel that we were stopping in, and on the way there, we got a little, sneaky peek of the destination we were heading to the next day... STONEHENGE!  

We stopped in a lovely little hotel/bed and breakfast, called "Fairlawn House" Located in Amesbury. Which gave you access to free parking, free WIFI and Breakfast was included in the morning! It was the most popular little hotel in the area, with Stonehenge being a 5 minute drive away! I deeply recommend it if you are planning on stopping down there.

As I said, on the Saturday, we went to Stonehenge at 11:00 AM, It was absolutely amazing! Even though you were not aloud to touch the stones as such, you got a very eerie and spiritual feeling when you are there, as if it has its own powers surrounding it. When you get there they either lend you a strange telephone like thing to listen to an audio tour on or you can download the audio tour on your phone's app store as we did, all of the information on the audio tour is fascinating and you can learn quite a lot from it, I believe that even if you are not really into old Castles, ruins and stuff like this, it will be a nice trip out as I think the spiritual nature of it warms to everybody.
Here are some pictures from Stonehenge.

Then, Finally after Stonehenge, we took a trip to Bath, It is a very old, cultural town, as it has been around for centuries, since the Roman times. The buildings and Scenery are so special and beautiful, it is just a truly astonishing place!

In Bath, we went to the Roman Baths Museum, where we got an audio tour (not accessible from app stores) around the Roman Baths, all of the water used was natural and from the fresh water Spring, which is actually the only Thermal Spring in the UK! I'm not going to give too much away about it as you may want to pay a visit soon! I definitely recommend it! It is a great day out and is beautiful!

And, that is the end of my Road Trip! I hope you enjoyed my little review and guidance to visit, all of the places that I have been. They are truly worth the travel and are not too expensive in price. None of this has been sponsored I just thought I'd recommend some places to you guys!

Also a big thank you to all of the support I have been getting! Hope you enjoyed this blog post!
That's all for now!

Much Love,
