PROFILE CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION ;)
WELL, HELLO THERE...... :)
I’m Shima :) I'm 19. I'm from Manchester, UK. 13th of April is my birthday and evidently, like Taylor, my lucky number's also 13 :) I want to thank you for stopping by my profile :) if you've got a question or just want to fangirl over Taylor, don't be afraid to drop a comment or a message me – I don’t bite :)
Oh, and I over use the smiley emoticon :) - don't hate! :P
A little about me, well, I'm pretty much your average nineteen-year old but kinda, sorta....different. I don't claim to be perfect – but I sure am fearless :)
Thanks to Taylor, I'm all about living in the moment. No more holding onto the past and really going out there and being fearless instead :)
I'm currently studying Fashion Design at University and about to start my second year. I've loved all things artsy since I was a kid so I knew I wanted to do something in that field so I chose Fashion. I'm really inspired by Taylor's style and hope that one day, who knows, maybe I can design her wardrobe for her or design a dress that she'll perform in or wear down the catwalk :)
I absolutely love travelling and hope to travel quite a bit when Taylor brings her RED tour to Europe and see her in as many cities and arenas as possible.
I love the idea of packing everything up and going on a journey to a part of the world I've never seen before.
Being on TC has also turned me into an keen CD collector thanks to many swifties - Dan, Dave & Emily to name a few :) Although my collections not huge (I'm just starting out) it's such a fun hobby collecting rare editions of Taylor's CD's, I recommend you to consider it :P
29.03.2011 - THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE
So, I got the chance to finally come along to Taylor's ONLY date in Manchester, UK on her UK leg of the Speak Now World Tour. And one word: wonderstruckingly-fantastically-amazingly-beautiful. Okay, so maybe that's more than one word (and a few made-up ones too) but the night was fantastically magical. It was the first time I’d ever seen her - live. I couldn't make it to her Fearless Tour in '09 but I still have the tickets. But, this night definitely made it all the more worthwhile. I'm still not over it. I was in the centre of the arena, 8th row from the stage and Taylor looked at me a couple of times (at my ridiculously bright banner I’m guessing) All I can say was that I’m still in awe, several months later!
I CAN’T WAIT FOR…
I can’t wait for Taylor to bring her Red Tour to the UK. I know she’s touring the US right now and then she’s going to head over to Australia but I wish I could count down the days until I see this song performed live…
Seriously, All Too Well gives me goosebumps everytime I hear it. There’s a huge lump in my throat when I listen to it alone, and I can literally feel every emotion that Taylor expresses. Even though I’ve never gone through the motions Taylor’s talking about in the song, I feel like I can relate. To me, it’s a sad song. A personal one and it makes me idolise Taylor so much more knowing that she went through this, through all the hurt and heartbreak and strong emotions and came out the other end a strong enough person to write about it and share it to the world – share how she felt. It’s such a powerful song and I think it really sums Taylor up as an artist; its just sheer talent that leaves me speechless everytime. I really can’t wait to see her perform this live.
MAYBE THIS THING WAS A MASTERPIECE…

I also love cats. And ketchup (I'm on of those that puts ketchup on ketchup). And meeting new people for the first time. And California.
I've always wanted to go there & finally got my wish For my 18th Birthday in 2012. Word of advice, if you've not been there, what are you waiting for?! I fell helplessly in love with the place. If I could, I'd happily live right there in the middle of Venice Beach + Santa Monica. It's my idea of heaven on Earth.
We will meet again California. One day :)
I also love you (no lie!) for taking the time and reading this. I'm pretty sure you had better things to do :) I don't bite so hit that comment/message button! (:
Bye ...for now :)

SOME MORE THINGS ABOUT ME &+ SOME APPROPRIATE GIF’S/IMAGES THAT RELATE TO ME :)
Oh and PS:....
I can't believe I've not heard the original version of Sparks Fly up until now. I didn't even know there was one. I came across it when I was watching random videos on YouTube. (it started from funny pranks to cute cat videos to taylor swift - like always lol). Here it is: www.youtube.com/watch?v=V_ddn4tJSBw I'm just so in love with this version and its just made me fall in...
