^Thanks to thebeautifulkind!
Well, hello there! Woah, you decided to click on my profile! That's cool. :) So I guess that means you want to learn about me huh? Then go ahead and start reading!
Hey! I'm HopeTheSunShines.:) My username was suggested by C.C. (thank you!) and I love it! My previous usernames are tswizzleandhungergames4ever and MosaicBrokenHearts13, in case you don't remember who I am.:) Anyways, my name is Emily, I'm thirteen years old, and I live in a town where people are too lazy to put up Christmas decorations. This has always upset me because Christmas has always been my favorite holiday. I adore anything British, or from England, and desperately wish that I were British. I love music! Aside from Taylor, I love Imagine Dragons, OneRepublic, Ed Sheeran,Gabrielle Aplin, and Florence+theMachine. I think you can always express yourself through music and that's really amazing. I'm learning guitar, and Taylor inspired me to! I love playing.:) So you know that term "fangirl"? That applies to me, especially with books. I LOVE to read. I was born a month early, and my family say it's because I couldn't wait to start reading. My dad told me that when my mom was still pregnant with me, he felt my arm moving across and he said I was flipping a page in a book.:) You probably think that's really weird...my favorite books include The Hunger Games Trilogy, The Mortal Instruments Series, The Infernal Devices Trilogy, The Harry Potter series, The Divergent Trilogy, The Caster Chronicles (Beautiful Creatures), and The Percy Jackson Series. I'm not just obsessed with books, though. I also freak out when it comes to Doctor Who and Sherlock (best shows ever)! I love oranges. Don't ask me why, but I just love them so much, and could eat them all day. I'm a vegetarian, and have been one for 2 years. I guess this is because I love animals and want to be a veterinarian someday.:) I have an obsession with The Lion King. ONE OF THE BEST MOVIES EVER. Oh and I have an obsession with The Little Mermaid. Love that movie too. My favorite colors are just about any shade of blues and greens. I just get a sense of peace when I see those colors. It reminds me of the ocean, and I LOVE the ocean. Chihuahuas are AWESOME. I have blonde hair which makes me a dumb blonde I guess... except I'm two years above my grade level in math, and I'm in the ALA (Advanced Language Arts) Program. Not all blondes are stupid, you know.;) Right now I'm currently wearing 9 bracelets, 4 of which are Taylor Swift bracelets. I like to think that someday I'll change the world and make a difference. I would LOVE to win the Nobel Peace Prize. I'm scared of spiders, roller coasters, and losing people I love. I'm actually scared about a lot of things, but most of them have to do with life and failure. I get paranoid a lot.:) If you just read all of that, wow! You're awesome. Virtual hug for you.
Maybe you could keep reading for me?
So now my story on how I became a swiftie. I don't have one of those stories where I was bullied and Taylor saved me. I don't have one where I was going through hard times, and Taylor's music got me through. But I can honestly say I've been happier ever since I first listened to Taylor.:) It was 2008, a few weeks before the Fearless album release. I was talking to my mom while she was repainting the living room. Randomly she asked me "Have you heard that song Love Story on the radio?" I had said no because my dad always listens to 80's music so I never really got to listen to the more modern music...she told me to go look the song up on Youtube because she really liked it and she thought I would too. So I did. And I was blown away. I loved the song, and Taylor's voice. That instantly became one of my favorite songs. I was so fascinated by her music, I decided to look up more of her music videos. It was after I watched Our Song and Tim McGraw that I knew she was something special, and she would stay with me for a long time. And I was right. After the release of Fearless, my mom bought her debut album and Fearless for me. And I became a swiftie forever immediately after that! Taylor has changed my life with her music, and that's something that will stay with me. On October 21st, 2011, I saw my very first Taylor concert! It was the Speak Now World Tour, and I went with my mom.:) We were freaking out the whole time, and that concert is perfectly captured in my memory. Then on May 29th, 2013 I saw the Red Tour with my mom, my best friend, and my best friend's mom. It was so awesome and I'll never forget it! One day, I just want to be able to tell Taylor how much I appreciate her, how she's changed my life, and how much she means to me. Taylor is more than just a role model to me...she's part of my life. Now here's a list of my top 5 songs from each album.:)
Our Song, Should've Said No, Mary's Song, A Place In This World, and I'm Only Me When I'm With You.
Love Story, You're Not Sorry, The Way I Loved You, Fearless, and Change.
Haunted, Innocent, Last Kiss, Sparks Fly, and Mine.
Everything Has Changed, Sad Beautiful Tragic, The Last Time, All Too Well, and WANEGBT.
Thanks for deciding to give some of your time to reading about me. That really means a lot because you were actually interested in me for a little bit there! Thanks x13000! And thanks for over 14000 page views! You get a donut.:)
So now, if you wanted, you could keep scrolling for gifs...
^Yes, you are Taylor.:)
A gif from each tour!-
^I adopted these songs! Haunted and Safe and Sound are two of my most favorite Taylor songs.:)
^The Hunger Games
^The Mortal Instruments
^John Green sniffing his own book, The Fault In Our Stars. THIS BOOK RUINED ME. YOU SHOULD READ IT SOMETIME.
^ Doctor Who!
^Made by Reshmi4Bieber! Me and my best friend (in real life too) call each other waffles. That's because one day we watched a Josh Hutcherson interview, and he called the interviewer his bffl...so me and my best friend said we were bffls. Then I said the bffls sounds like waffles, so we started calling each other waffle. She's the best waffle I could ever ask for! :P
Aw, you have to leave so soon? Ok:(
What do you guys think? I just made it today, and I'm actually really happy at the way it turned out.:) Much more organized.
