10 Facts About Me (That You Might Not Have Known)

I can be adventurous. I am up for *almost* anything that comes my way, especially theme parks, and, in them, thrilling rollercoasters. A ride that gets me screaming my head off (happily) and my stomach filled with butterflies is the best. My favourite is the Incredible Hulk in Islands Of Adventure (Florida), which is also a park I adore and have visited three times! Although I love a bit of excitement, I don't like scary movies.

I am interested in languages and am learning three, fluent in one. Fluent in English, as it is my first language, and I am learning Irish (or Gaeilge as I like to call it), French and Spanish.

I am currently in Grade 9 of 10 in Speech and Drama and 4 of 8 in Piano.

I like to be organised and neat. I hate it when my room is cluttered, and want to clean it as soon as possible (but normally procrastinates instead), and my school things always have to be in order for me to be 100% cheerful.

I eat the Rice Krispies cereal for breakfast, with sprinkles of sugar and milk. Everyday.

While I am obsessed with pop, rock, electronic and lots of other genres of music, I also love musicals and operas. I have seen Hairspray, Wicked, 9 to 5 and Anything Goes live in Broadway and West End, and two operas Rigoletto and La Traviata live (much prefer Rigoletto).

I am a morning person. I do like afternoons and evenings also, but unlike others, I am an early-waker. 99% of my mornings I can wake and get up before 10 am. Yes, even in the summer.

Everyone had and has a favourite Disney princess, whether they want to or not. Mine was always Sleeping Beauty, or Aurora, but recently she has had competition with Rapunzel in Tangled!

I aspire to be a writer and some day write my own book. I wish I wrote more fiction, but with school it is hard. I have a blog, and that does count as writing, so I am practicing my writing skills when I don't realise it! Apart from that dream, I would also be interested in being a journalist, professional blogger, fashion stylist, make up artist and at times, an actress.

I am starting third year tomorrow. This is an exam year in Ireland, Junior Certificate, which is like a mini Leaving Certificate, and I'm looking forward to this year, and getting it over with!

*Bonus fact: I am Irish, yes, but not a leprechaun.
