A short bit about me would be that I'm eighteen, I'm from the county of Worcestershire where a lot of little battles happened in the 1600s, and I'm not very good at writing about myself - you've been warned.
As of this coming March I'll have been a member of this forum for seven years - if somebody were to have told my eleven year old self that I'd still be the ride-or-die-for-T-Swift kind of bitch that I am right now I would've had my doubts, but the amount of online friends I've made here that have surely become offline ones too is anything to go by, I'm confident that the figures are high enough to justify my apparent immortality here.
Since pledging my allegiance as a fan back in late 2008 I've seized each and every opportunity to see Taylor that I could get my hands on, resulting in an impressive (if I do say so myself) five year streak of attending her concerts and award shows - one date in particular that I attended was the first ever audience to hear Red performed live back in 2012. Bless up.
It's only appreciative to mention that throughout my whole time as a fan I've had huge amounts of fast reactions and good luck which has resulted in my 12 year old face being in the limited edition Mine mosaic, getting my questions through the Google hangout ask session, being the lucky sod that caught the guitar pick thrown from YBWM on the B-Stage, multiple interactions/inside jokes/personal messages with Caitlin, Grant and Amos from the Agency, meeting Andrea at the Red tour, touching Taylor as she moved through the crowd and being blown a kiss (and of course I blew one back), being noticed on Tumblr and last but not least, being sent a love heart by Taylor Swift on the original Taylor Connect forum #claimtofame.
I finished college early at seventeen and with straight As (as much of a shock to you as it still is for me) after choosing to finish my education online whilst working a full-time job because there's nothing like a dollar to make me holla - since finishing college I've decided to return this year to pursue my academics in Spanish with the aspirations of becoming a holiday representative and working abroad; maybe one day when I'm too old to be running around a hotel resort in a bikini I'll age gracefully into something like a translator or the person that does the voiceovers at international airports. We'll see.
I'm a self-proclaimed enthusiast for all of the dogs, cooking any kind of mediocre-fancy things and India Jane home furnishing (so boojie). My name's Rachel. Should've probs mentioned that earlier.
For your viewing pleasure, this is my dog, Sky pie.
