Hello Everyone! Thank you for visiting my profile, I know it isn’t very experienced so thanks for coming! I’m going to write my ‘About’ now and I’m going to go into as much depth as I can because I really want you guys to know me for who I am.
So, my name is Heidi and I am 16 years old from England! I live in a place called Cheshire if you’ve ever heard of it, which you probably haven’t because it’s quite small! I wish I could say I have been a Taylor fan from the beginning, but it pains me to say I haven’t. Because I live in England Taylor isn’t very well known therefore I hadn’t really heard of her until Love Story when she finally got some airplay! That was the first song I heard from Taylor and I absolutely fell in love with it! We always used to sing it at school & it was my ringtone for a while too! Ever since I heard Love Story I haven’t looked back! I got her debut album & Fearless for my Birthday and then Speak Now for Christmas 2010.
I’ll return to my opinions and feelings about Taylor, her albums and flawlessness later but now I’m going to write about my story. Well, it isn’t exactly something you’d read in a woman’s gossip magazine that is horrific but I guess I’ve been through enough.. So I have grown up in the same house with the same family for my whole life. There was always my mum, dad, brother and me. My brother has a form of autism which always made things regarding family life a little bit more difficult. But we were ok, we are worked to fit in cope with anything that affected.
When I was eight years old my dad was in and out of hospital all of the time and constantly lay in bed off work because he was ill. Of course at that age I wasn’t told what was going on because I was too young to understand. The thing that really got me about that was whenever I needed someone to talk to or ask for advice I would always go to my dad but even he was protecting me from the truth. Things only got worse from then on. I finally found out he had cancer and died soon after I turned nine, I’ve started to cry now, just thinking about it. Like Taylor says in ‘Never Grow Up’, “Remember the footsteps, remember the words said” and I do from that day. My world was turned upside down and the person who I would usually turn to when that happens was gone.
Other things have happened too. My Nanna was diagnosed with Dementia and my Grandma died early last year, but I doubt you want me to go into those stories too!
I’m really sorry I’m getting so personal but I’ve always been a ‘words person’ and I always write my emotions down, I guess it just helps me to feel better because I never talk to anyone about any of this stuff.
I’m not looking for any sympathy from people who are reading this by the way. I just wanted to share with you my story and how Taylor’s helped me.
So, when I discovered Taylor it felt like such a blessing to me. I had finally found someone who uses words to express their emotions in a way that felt comforting to me. Her songs help to cheer me up on a sad day or to make my happy days even better. Her warm personality also helps me to smile even when I feel like I don’t want to. She really is one of the most influential people in my life. I feel like I know her personally. I really do love her and she’s taught me so much through her song writing and general words of wisdom!
Every single day I listen to her music, watch videos of her, look at pictures of her and go on my Taylor dedicated twitter. I am seriously obsessed. She is obviously amazingly talented, versatile, funny, beautiful and overall just the sweetest person ever. My love for her will never die, she has helped me so much with my life with her clever song writing and attitude towards life. I can't thank her enough but one day I wish to meet her so I can try. I will always support her and do as much as I can for her as she has done so much for me. I am Wonderstruck because of Taylor, Fearless because of Taylor, I Speak Now because of Taylor & all of the time Like everyone, I have my bad days but I remind myself to stay happy and positive. All. Because. Of. Taylor.
If you’re still with me, THANKYOU! I never expect anyone to read this much about me but I guess now it’s here if you want to! Send me a request, a message, whatever! I’d love to talk to you all!
I love you Taylor Alison Swift. Thank you for everything. I am a Swiftie. Forever & Always.
Omg I have been waiting for Wonderstruck since I first heard it existed, I am soooo excited to get it! Seriously! I can't wait to smell it for the first time, it will just be so magical- I can't wait! :D I was going to order it online but then I stopped myself because I wanted to keep this level of excitement up & feel so happy being able to walk into a shop and buy it in person :) I...
