Hi, I’m Orla! I’m an 18 year old girl from a small town in Ireland. I am a Taylor Swift enthusiast, lover of country music, chocolate and books that make me cry. I am currently in my first year of college in the University of Limerick, studying arts joint honours, and loving every minute of it. As well as studying, I’m also a member of the UL Trampoline and Gymnastics Club, and First Year Rep on the Committee of UL’s fabulous LGBT Society, Out In UL!
I thought making it to university was my biggest goal and that everything would sort itself out frommther, however, I’m still not at the point in my life when I can picture my future vividly, it’s still hazy, I’m not quite sure where I’m going or what I’m doing. That scares me to a certain degree, but at the same time, it’s exciting because I can do whatever I want to do!
I want to specialise my Arts Degree in English and New Media with cultural studies. It combines my love of reading and writing with my constant need to be on social media. It’s a versatile degree so hopefully I’ll figure out what I want to do along the way.
One thing I know I definitely want to do is travel. There are so many places I want to see, from New York to South Africa, Australia to China! My list is endless. I love exploring foreign towns and cities without a map and ending up partially lost in a tiny shop that’s way more hipster than I am, then ending up back where I started with no idea how I got there. There’s something exhilarating in getting lost in a city…don’t you think?
So, now, there’s just one more thing you should no about me: I love making new friends! I’ve met some incredible people online and I’d love to get to know you too, I promise I’m friendly! Please don’t be shy, comment on my posts, message me, follow me on social media, I nearly always follow back!
Love Orla x
