Music is the most captivating, honest thing. It can strike you in the heart and break you to pieces but it can also put them back together. That’s the magic of a song, it can explain emotions you’re feeling even when you can’t comprehend them yourself. Sometimes you think you’re okay but then you hear that song and you realize you’re not fine at all. Or sometimes you just feel like giving up but then you hear that song and your passion re-ignites. That’s the thing about music, it’s instantaneous. It’s therapy for the broken hearted, hope for the lonely ones and home for the lost souls. It’s our light amidst the darkness and as long as it plays it will never go out.

Hi there! My name is Kristen and I’ll be 20 this fall. I love rainstorms, dresses, sparkly things, huge fuzzy blankets and a lady named Taylor Swift. One could describe me as a dork and I’m completely okay with that, where’s the fun in being strict and uptight? I wear glasses but I can actually see pretty well without them. I’m pretty shy around people I don’t know but with my friends and family I’m quite outgoing. My mom laughs because as a baby I was a late talker but now I don’t shut up (Although I don’t think I talk that much, do I?). I apologize for any run on sentences; my thoughts seem to get away from me sometimes. I love the color purple and I regret painting my bedroom walls blue (I have my 13 year old self to thank for that). I don’t mind being alone, I actually quite like it. It’s nice to be able to reflect and to escape from the constant rush of life. I love to read and I like to think I’m a pretty good writer. I write songs mostly and I have a songbook on here, check it out?
Music is everything to me and I hope one day to learn how to play guitar. Taylor has been the constant rock in my life since 2009. Her music helped me navigate through high school and comforted me when I was alone. She was there for me when I moved out for the first time two years ago when I went to university. Playing her music was like bringing a little piece of home into my dorm room and I’ll always be thankful for that. She’s helped me grow so much and one day I hope I get to tell her all of this in person. So far I’ve been lucky enough to see her in concert twice. I went to the Speak Now Tour on July 14th 2011; it was the most enchanting night! I also went to the Red Tour on June 14th 2013 and it was the best night of my life. My sister and I were able to get down to the floor when Taylor performed on the B-Stage and we were only one row back from her. I still can’t believe I was that close to Taylor! I think she even looked and smiled at me during “Tim McGraw”, it was truly magical. Other than Taylor you can find a whole range of music on my iPod, from Lady Antebellum to Ed Sheeran. At the moment I think my Ipod consists mostly of country music but it always changes depending on my mood.
Just like Taylor I’m a hopeless romantic. I dream of finding that one person to spend the rest of my life with. It’s such a thrilling idea that there’s someone out there for you, I just hope there’s one for me. I’ve never been in love, I’ve never even been kissed and it’s something I’ve been longing for. I want to know what it feels like to love someone like that, to love them unconditionally for the rest of your life. Everyone deserves love and I hope you find your prince or princess just like I hope to find mine. One thing is for sure, I can’t wait to find out what lies ahead, it’s always more exciting than looking back. Who doesn’t love a good surprise?
If you read all of this I want to give you a hug, thank you! You guys are all awesome, maybe one day I’ll get to meet some of you and give you a real hug :)
Forever & Always
Your virtual hug :)
