Hey guys! My name is Sara Líf and I'm from Iceland. Random fact of the day. In Iceland we don't have last names. If Taylor were Icelandic her name would be Taylor Swift Scottsdaugther. I think it's pretty funny how normal, classic and good Icelandic names can turn out funny when you translate them. Let me translate my fathers name for you, Godbear. My lucky number is 11 but I also like 13 and I think you know why. I was born 11.06.94 (11th June 1994) at 11:06 PM. My favorite song on RED is Holy Ground. And that song is #11 on the album. Freaky.
But anyways, enough of that. I hope you didn't get confused or anything. It will get worse, trust me. My zodiac sign is Gemini which basically means I won't shut up. I'm a perfectionist but I try not to be occasionally.
I love writing and reading. I like the smell of new books. People think that's very weird, so I smell books when I'm alone, reading in bed. I like going to the library and to the bookstore. I'm that annoying friend that always wants to go to the bookstore. No one wants to go with me.
I read newspapers backwards. I always, ALWAYS, read magazines and books in the correct order.
Iceland & northern lights.
Winter: 20 hours without daylight.

Summer: daylight for 23 hours!
We're all here because of Taylor. We all love her. I can't even discribe how much I love her. Maybe I could in Icelandic, but I think it would just sound silly in English. Taylor has had the biggest impact on my life and she means the world to me. She's like the older sister I never had. She's inspiring, her music is amazing, she's a great person and she's a beautiful soul (a pretty little mind).
I live in Iceland but I always vote for Taylor. When I can vote for her I go all giggly and I get so excited.
I think Taylor should visit us. I don't want to end up like this person. I don't know If you want to read about all of that anyway. But, in Iceland we have 13 santa clauses and we celebrate 13 days of Christmas. Children put their shoe in their window and get little presents from each and every santa clause, every night, for 13 days.
I wasn't always fearless. I had really bad "best friends." These girls weren't my friends, they didn't support me in life, they just made me feel like I was nothing and unworthy somehow. I'm really tall (5'11) and I hated being this tall for a long time because my friends were shorter than me. I have curly auburn hair. My friends were always pointing that out like it was funny to have curly hair or something. I felt like I had to straighten my hair every day.
I once asked if I should get a hair cut and dye my hair darker, they didn't listen or bother to answer. But I just went for it anyway, because I wanted to do this After I'd done it, my veeery good friends told me that they missed my old hair. Thanks for telling me that after I changed it.
I always told them I didn't listen to music because I was afraid the would make fun of my taste in music. I stopped listening to music for a while.. but music is everything to me. I've been singing since I was a little kid but at thirteen they told me I couldn't sing. I felt really bad about singing since then. I was really insecure that it was almost unhealthy.
My life changed forever when I first heard Mean, I honestly cried. The song is beautiful. I love it so much. I couldn'T believe people were being mean to Taylor. It made me feel like we had something in common. Well, we have a lot more in common than I thought!! I became a Swiftie when I heard her sing Mean. I was just a fan of everything she did before but now I'm truly obsessed.
I haven't talked to my "best friends" for years now. Because of Taylor, I became fearless. I auditioned for my school choir, which is really popular and huge. I had to sing to the choir director and I was terrified. There were so many people who auditioned and only a few made it. And you know what? I DID! I was so happy. Now I know that I can actually sing and my friends were just lying to me all along. Just to make me feel miserable, and so that they could feel better.
My happy ending: I've made a lot of amazing friends in my new school and on Taylor Connect. I'm not as active on TC as I were in the beginning because I'm really obsessed with Tumblr now. My username is taypunzel. :)
I'll be a Taylor fan forever. No matter what happens. Her lyrics keep me going and I'm optimistic about meeting her. Even though I live here. I don't miss a thing, well except going to concerts. So, I'm kind of missing out, a lot. I really, really, want an opportunity to meet Taylor or at least a chance to get to see her. I don't know if I'll ever meet her. I sometimes feel so far away, it's ridiculous. "The stakes are high, the water's rough, but this love is ours."
Just the thought of going to her concerts would make me SO unbelievably happy. I would enjoy every minute of it, cry a lot, sing the whole time and dance my awkward and nerdy dance. I'm not the best dancer, I'm not very sophisticated either. But who cares as long as everyone is having a good time?
I truly admire you for reading my disorganized chaos! You are now awesome.
I'm sorry if this is the MOST random profile you've ever read before.
YOU HEARD ME. I'M GOING CRAZY. THIS IS FINALLY HAPPENING. I've been waiting for years now. And it's finally here. I'm flying from Iceland to Germany to see her live. I've had enough of waiting in Iceland for Taylor to tour here. It's not going to happen any time soon. It's such a small country. So I saved up so much money for this trip to Cologne June 19th :) section 211, row 9,...
