Hello :)

Hi guys! So I have created my own blog...and this is my first post which is VERY exciting for me! It's hard to know what to talk about first...so I thought maybe I would just let you know a bit more about...me? Most of you have known me for a while now but I bet there's lots of things you don't know about me, so I asked you for some questions on Twitter and Facebook...and as usual you were very helpful! :) 

Question: Pam Kelley How are the guitar lessons coming along?
The guitar lessons are coming along great! I love playing the guitar, I have to play at least once a day I find it so relaxing. (But sometimes it annoys my sister especially early in the morning!!) I only started playing in the last year but I know it's something I'm always going to keep up. I recently bought an electric guitar so now I'm learning that too! 

Question: Deb Scott What's your favorite and least favorite foods?
This is an easy one! My favourite has to be one of my mam's currys and my least favourite is definitely garlic, ugh I hate it so much! I won't touch anything with garlic in it....and you can't sneak it into something and trick me...I'll know it's there! 

Question:   What is the one thing we would never guess about you?
Hmm..... I've broken my right arm three times, once from falling off my bike and twice while playing sports!! One time I broke it right before the opening night of a production of 'Oliver Twist' that I was playing Oliver in! I had to wear a long sleeved top and try act like normal but people were probably wondering why my right arm looked so stiff!!

Question:   Did the CT guys pull any pranks on u & did u pull any on them? :) 
Every day!! There were so many....but the one that stands out most was when a fan gave me loads of silly string right before a show and I was thinking to myself 'better not spray any of the guys before the show...don't want to ruin their clothes.....' So I decided to wait til after the show to spray them....but THEN, right during the finale Keith ran on stage with the silly string and covered me in it! I couldn't believe he'd found it, but it was funny, he got me good!

Question:  did you like touring with the lads in the states?
I loved the whole experience of touring the states! It was so much fun to wake up somewhere new almost every day! Every venue had different food, different accents, different places to visit, it was so exciting! Performing almost every night was such a buzz too.... I don't think I could ever get bored of that feeling! 

Question: Alexis Marie  How old are your brother and sister? 
My brother Thomas is 18 and my sister Roisin is 21. The three of us are really close and usually just laugh at silly things!! Thomas is studying to be a teacher and Roisin just finished a communications degree and is heading to the states for the summer! She's going to Maine to teach photography in a summer camp, I'll miss her but I know she'll have an amazing time! 

Me with Thomas and Roisin before I headed off last August! 

Question: Kim Kimball What was you favorite moment on CT?
My favourite moment had to be meeting Damian and all the other guys from The Glee Project (Bryce, Cameron and Samuel) I had watched the whole series and I had heard so much about Damian...so I was definitely a bit starstruck when they all arrived to one of our shows!! 

Question: Emily Bell what's your favorite movie?! :D
My favourite movie (well... there's 8!) definitely the whole Harry Potter series. I had read all the books and loved them so I was so excited for the movies, I have all the DVD's now too! When my brother and sister came to Florida last October Sharon bought us all tickets to go to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal it was definitely one of my highlights!! 

Question: Keanna Irving What was it like to win Irelands got talent?
Winning The All Ireland Talent Show was such a crazy experience.....the start of a crazy year!! It was the best feeling in the world when my name was called out as the winner I couldn't believe it,  the best thing though was sharing it with my family and friends, they were all there and they were all crying and jumping and hugging each other! The next day my picture was in every newspaper and on the national news, I had never experienced anything like it!

 what is your ultimate Dream in life
I don't have an exact dream right now.... but I know that if I always have music in my life and my family around me I'll be happy :)
