I LOVE Taylor and I hope to meet her one day. I know every word to every song. My name is Allison, but I like to think "Alison" because its Taylor's middle name. I have blonde curly hair just like TayTay. I am 5 foot 11 inches just like TSwift :D
She touched my hand in october of 2011 during the speak now concert. Best moment of my life. I hope I get to meet her this year.
Favorite Taylor Quotes: (well, I love them all but I can't list them all lol)
"All you need to do to be my friend is like me."
"If you cry over a guy, then your friends can't date him. It can't even be considered."
"I am an over-achiever, and I want to be known for the good things in my life."
"I believe when it comes to love, there's something intangible about who we are attracted to, and I don't think I have a pattern."
"I have this really high priority on happiness and finding something to be happy about."
"I know my flaws before other people point them out to me."
"I approach love differently now that I know it's hard for it to work out."
"I'm not afraid to write my feelings in songs."
"If you're yelling you're the one who's lost control of the conversation."
"I'm intimidated by the fear of being average."
"All of my favorite people - people I really trust - none of them were cool in their younger years."
"I remember straightening my hair because I wanted to be like everybody else, and now the fact that anybody would emulate what I do? It's just funny."
"Your feelings so are important to write down, to capture, and to remember because today you're heartbroken, but tomorrow you'll be in love again."
"I didn't want to just be another girl singer. I wanted there to be something that set me apart."
"I have this fear of falling in front of large groups of people. That's why I tend not to wear heels."
"I get so excited when a song I wrote that's very personal to me goes No. 1 and I look down and see people singing the words back to me."
"I never want to change so much that people can't recognize me."
"I'm like 6'2 when I wear heels, so I tend to wear cowboy boots a lot."
"I've been careful in love. I've been careless in love. And I've had adventures I wouldn't trade for anything."
"I'm very aware and very conscious of the path I chose in life, and very aware of the path I didn't choose."
"When you walk out onstage in front of 65,000 people, it can bring you to tears."
"No matter what happens in life, be good to people. Being good to people is a wonderful legacy to leave behind."
"Unique and different is the next generation of beautiful."
"Being fearless isn't being 100% not fearful, it's being terrified and jumping anyway..."
"You’re lucky enough to be different, never change."
"What I’ve learned is not to change who you are, because eventually you’re going to run out of new things to become."
"There is a time for silence. There is a time for waiting your turn. But if you know how you feel, and you so clearly know what you need to say, you'll know it. I don't think you should wait. I think you should speak now."
"Life isn't about surviving the storm, it's about dancing in the rain"
“When I was a little girl I used to read fairy tales. In fairy tales you meet Prince Charming and he's everything you ever wanted. In fairy tales the bad guy is very easy to spot. The bad guy is always wearing a black cape so you always know who he is. Then you grow up and you realize that Prince Charming is not as easy to find as you thought. You realize the bad guy is not wearing a black cape and he's not easy to spot; he's really funny, and he makes you laugh, and he has perfect hair.”
“Words can break someone into a million pieces, but they can also put them back together. I hope you use yours for good, because the only words you'll regret more than the ones left unsaid are the ones you use to intentionally hurt someone.”
“giving up doesn't always mean your weak sometimes your just strong enough to let go”
“FEARLESS is getting back up and fighting for what you want over and over again....even though every time you've tried before you've lost.”
“Real life is a funny thing, you know. In real life, saying the right thing at the right moment is beyond crucial. So crucial, in fact, that most of us start to hesitate, for fear of saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. But lately what I've begun to fear more that that is letting the moment pass without saying anything. I think most of us fear reaching the end of our life, and looking back, regretting the moments we didn't speak up. When we didn't say "I love you." When we should've said "I'm Sorry." When we didn't stand up for ourselves or some one who needed help.”
"I love you like I love sparkles and having the last word. And that's real love."
“I've always been a hugger. If we all hugged more, the world would be a better place”
“I still love sparkles and grocery shopping and really old cats that are only nice to you half the time. I still love writing in my journal and wearing dresses all the time and staring at chandeliers.”
AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST:
“We should love, not fall in love because everything that falls breaks.”
So I'm getting more and more psyched for the Red tour, so I decided to ponder ideas for the set list. Here's my guess, and please feel free to comment yours This is obviously gonna be out of order: I think she's going to do 18 or 19 songs since that's what she's always done, but it would be ideal to do 22 1. State of Grace 2. Starlight 3. Sparks Fly 4. Mine 5. Red 6....
