      I'm honestly so excited to type that sentence. Rooster Teeth has been such a big part of my life since I first became a fan and now I get to go to an absolutely amazing event and hang out with other fans (and as an ADDED bonus I get to travel with my girl @tealcalm)


      I honestly can not believe how lucky I am to be going to this event and I'm super excited! It'll be hard to wipe the smile off my face from now until then!

      Did you know that no one had registered the name 'Orla' on this website? I mean, by default I kinda went with my full name because I assumed that Orla would have been taken on this site like it is on every other site in the world, but nah, when I checked today, it was still free. So now my user name is just Orla. Because screw brand recognition, right?

    • Been super BUSY!

      So! I've been rediculously busy, so much so that this is the first time I've been on roosterteeth.com in weeks. I've missed this site, I've missed the awesome people. I'm trying to maintain some activity, so you may see me poking around and commenting on some things, but I won't be here much. Turns out 6th year is super important, who knew?

      This is kind of a shitty post, I can't think of what to say, but hey, at least it's a post!

    • I got a tattoo!

      Hello there lovely people, hope you're having a fantastic day today!

      I have been 18 for about a month now and I've been thinking about getting a tattoo for a few years now. I know a lot of people look down on people who rush into getting tattoos done the moment they turn 18, but I don't think I could have waited much longer to get mine done, it really holds a whole lot of meaning for me.

      Before I go on with this, I'll tell you what I got done. (Or show you, if this works right?)

      They say 'half agony, half hope' on my wrists. It's a quote from Jane Austen's novel Persuasion ('I am half agony, half hope.') so I thought it was only right to get them done in the handwriting of the great woman herself (or as close to it as I could get).

      So uh. There's a long winding story that goes along with this but the upshot is that I've come pretty close to suicide a few times and each time a sense of hopefulness for the future has stopped me. There's always going to be that little bit of agony from my depression that lingers in my life, but I'm never more than half agony. Because I always have that half hope.

      I mean, I took the line WAY out of context, in the book it's part of a declaration of love which, heh... But it's always resonated with me in a different way and Jane Austen has always been one of my absolute favorite authors, even from a young age when my mum used to read me the abridged versions of her novels. So everything about this is really very close to my heart.

      I've had them done for about a week and a half now and the picture above is from the day they were done (seeing as they're all scabby and gross now.)

      But I'm so happy I got them done. Hopefully they'll keep reminding me that when times get rough, there is always hope.

      So it's been four months! My bad, I'm sorry!

      One day I decided to study for my tests and take some time off RT to do that and uh? Next thing it's nearly the end of summer and I've turned 18 and everything is strange but good!

      RTX looked amazing (from the little bits I've seen floating around the internet, I wasn't actually anywhere that had an internet connection to watch the live streams, unfortunately) and I would loved to have seen more of it. (Kdin proposing to Val was just. The greatest thing I've seen in such a long time. So cute. They deserve every happiness!!)

      Uh... I'm struggling with what I should write. I'm going into my last year of school, so that's nerve wracking, I guess? I've kind of decided that I'm going to bust my ass off this year so I can (hopefully) get into a good college and do computer science.

      I hope you're all doing okay, lovely people!

      Have a fantastic day :)

      I don't really take part in any other part of this site (which is a sad truth that i want to try and rectify, I want to talk to people and take part in this site more) but I post journals from time to time, and some pictures and people have, for the most part, been super awesome and i want to just thank you all for that.
      Seriously, I'm basically just a strange person with a laptop and a love of this company -and the community that surrounds it- and you've all been so kind and I just can't express how grateful I am. This is short, but I just felt it needed to be said.
      Thanks, guys.

    • Today.

      Today I did two very silly things.
      Early this morning, I got up, left a note and went down to the nearest bridge, and looked down. And then I walked away, went home, ripped up the note and got into bed, curled up under my covers. Thinking about what I was going to do on the bridge was the first of the very silly things I did, and man is it the silliest of them. I was really dumb. I shouldn't have thought about it, shouldn't have written that note.
      The second silly thing I did was bringing my dog for a walk and not bringing my key. Now, normally, that wouldn't be so bad but for reasons I don't really want to get into, my family wasn't home and I ended up spending an hour and a half in my back garden after the walk, phone dead. So, to entertain myself, I laid down and looked up. The sky was clear, thank god, and I could see the stars. So I started counting. Now, where I live there's a bit of light pollution, but not so much that it really effects how many stars you can see. So I started counting, just to pass the time. 1 turned to 2, turned to 8 turned to 100 and then I started thinking.
      How beautiful is the world? How lucky am I to be able to count the stars in my back garden? Compared to the scheme of things I'm tiny and insignificant but I'm also here and I'm breathing and I'm watching the greatest show in the universe while watching the stars and I don't know, I guess my heart just started beating a little faster and it made me glad that I came home this morning.
      I suppose I'm writing this just to say that some of you may have felt like me this morning, like there was nothing worth holding on for but... Just keep holding out, and maybe something will make your heart beat faster too? Something will remind you just how beautiful life can really be.

        I'm glad you know! Some people don't know and that's just sad. That's never a good look for anyone, so possibly shaving is for the best
