My name is Emily. I'm twenty years old and I was born on October 13th at 12:13pm, so I think my parents should have seen the signs early on that I was going to grow up to be a swiftie. I am a proud UK swiftie who saw Taylor on the Red tour on February 1st and 2nd in London, and will see her there again in June for the 1989 tour (I can't wait - hope to see some of you there!)
Anyway, thank you for visiting my page! I love answering pointless questions and meeting new people so don’t be afraid to say hello.
I love Taylor Swift, clearly. I don’t think I would have enough space to explain why I love her, even if I could even find the right words. In the simplest way she is just very talented, but is still the same sweet girl she always has been. She has been my role model and inspiration for a long time, and I really can't imagine life without Taylor now. I have been a fan of hers since I first heard Love Story back in November 2008. I don’t regret any moment of being a Swiftie because I have met some of the nicest people in the world, and I get to watch Taylor grow up and prove to the world you can sell millions of records and become an inspiration to millions of people around the world with nothing but a guitar and a dream.
I was lucky enough to get to meet Taylor in person on October 7th 2012. One of the things that really stuck with me that day was that Taylor went to see every single person waiting while the other celebrities just went to a few people. I never thought I would ever be able to write about going to a concert so that day meant everything to me. I was lucky enough to be able to see Taylor on the Red tour on February 1st and 2nd, and even luckier to be able to be going with my wonderful boyfriend (who I met through Taylor Connect - it really is the best). That's something else I love about Taylor, it can bring people together from all over the world who never would have had the chance to meet otherwise. I think that's magical :)
Another thing I love about Taylor is that everyone can enjoy her music no matter how old you are or where you are from. I have now converted my whole family into Taylor fans, including my dad who usually likes rock music. It makes me happy when my dad calls me or emails me about some new Taylor news he has found, even if we have all known if for ages! I don't think you need to have all Taylor's merchandise, or have been to every tour, or have been here since 2006 to be a swiftie. If you can say these things then that is amazing and I am really pleased for you, but I don't think any less of swifties who can't say it. I love all swifties equally. While I don't have anything against people who say they are Taylor's biggest fan, I just don't think of fans in that way. I just like the fact people are fans and that's all that matters to me.
Although I love Taylor, I am terrible at anything creative or musical. In fact I am so bad that my guitar teacher suggested that maybe I shouldn't be playing the guitar. So instead I am currently at Imperial College London studying Biology (#TeamPlants), which I am loving.
Apart from Taylor I love my lizard who do nothing of any interest which makes him cuddly, kind of like a pillow pet. I also like pillow pets. Although most animals tend to hate me, probably because I’m terrified of most of them. I love fantasy films and books, I think there’s something enchanting about discovering a new world completely different from our own you can lose yourself in. I love going out to shops and finding something so adorable you just have to buy it even though you know you will never have a use for it - hence why I am now the proud owner of a fluffy ostrich. One of my favourite things I own is a tiny golden elephant which was sent to me from a friend I met online all the way from Sri Lanka. In a way it reminds me that nothing is unreachable. I love my online friends so much. I hope I can meet you all someday. I think there is something really special in the fact that out of the billions of people on the Internet we found each other and, although we live in different places, we chose to stay friends. I have so much respect for people out there who aren’t afraid to be different, who don’t want to be a certain way because the rest of the world says you should.
This has been quite long so well done if you managed to read all of it, you can have a free hugs for that. I also like hugs - because no matter who you are, where you're from, or what you're going through a hug is always appreciated.
(Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you)
This is a really late post, but I got my A Level results last week and I got into my first choice university!! If anyone on here is, or will be, going to Imperial College London I'll see you in October (!!!!!!). I start on October 13th so hopefully the Swift Day will mean good things for me, even if it is my birthday I hope anyone else getting exam results got what they wanted - and good...
