I'm a high school math teacher in my fourth year of teaching and I'll am now a quarter of a century old.
I first heard about Taylor in the Summer of 2007 (Summer School between my Freshman and Sophomore year of College). My friend showed me Tear Drops on My Guitar video and all because of her green dress. And I have been a fan ever since.
My Missed Opportunity to Meet Taylor Swift before she became HUGE: I live in Frederick MD, where there is this great country station (WFRE 99.9) who bring in a lot of upcoming country acts who haven't hit it big yet to the area. I found out last year, that Taylor Swift performed in Frederick at "In the Streets" (A big block party where they close down the main street and bring in food and music and activites) in Sept 2007 for free with M&G afterwards. When I found that out, I was heartbroken because I was a sophomore in college just 30 minutes up the road and could have found a ride down to met her but at the time I wasn't listening to the station and really for those activites most artists don't put it on their website or if they do, it is the week of the event.

Profile Pic: There is a company called Creation Ent whose main focus is to put on Cons for different TV Shows and Movies. One of the Cons they do is Supernatural. I was able to drive the 4hrs to NJ to attend the Con and was able to meet Jared Jared Padalecki, who is also a Cowboys fan, this past year (2012). This past May (2013) I was able to meet Jensen Ackles. So much fun but too much money to keep going as a guest...
