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 on day 6/7. So I have a thing for the number 11 (and kind of 6 as well).
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 means I won't shut up. That's how you can spot a Gemini. I'm also a perfectionist but I try not to be.
I've always been a deep thinker. I often get lost in random thoughts, as you've found out already now. When I was little I made up a bunch of stories, games, characters and songs. I even made a whole silly little world, which I still remember. I love writing, I'm always writing. I have a bunch of diaries. I love looking back at everything I've written in them. I think that's the thing I like the most about these books. Laughing at old memories. Speaking of books, I love 'em. Reading is a huge part of my life. I mean, when are you not reading? I hope you're reading this. If you are, thanks! I have a weird and nerdy obsession of smelling new books. I can't believe I just wrote that here. I guess I trust you. I mean, awesome people like Taylor, right?!
Ooh, and I read newspapers backwards but when I think about it, I don't even find that weird. Do you do that? What more random things could I tell you about. Here's one more random thing, I always get the last piece of everything. It's not even funny anymore. My new pair of shoes, earrings, shorts, you name it. My guitar was even the last of his lonely kind in the guitar store. I love my guitar, you really get emotionally attached to it. I love music so much. Music and words could do anything.
Iceland & northern lights.

I've loved Taylor from the very first day. I loved every single song I heard from her. I wasn't a swiftie though. I didn't know anything about them. I wasn't obsessed yet. I didn't know I could adore a singer just as much as I do now. Her whole story fascinates me. Her story made me optimistic about the world.
She 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 so inspiring, her music is amazing, she's a great person, she's a beautiful soul. I love everything she stands for. I would seriously consider naming my first daughter Taylor or Alison.
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. Yeah, you're welcome. Children put their shoe in the window and get little presents from each and every santa clause, every night, for 13 days.
But I wasn't always fearless. I had really bad "best friends" and I realized that many years later. These two 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 felt like a blank page for years with them. 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 red-ish 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 or even dye it a different color. I'm glad I didn't.
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 my passion. I don't get why I did that. 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, 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 didn't know Taylor had this side of her. It made me feel like we had something in common. Now, 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 promise I'm a great fan though I became a swiftie a bit later in life. I've been doing a lot of digging about Taylor, and I mean a lot.. just to make up for lost love. *hint*
I haven't talked to my "best friends" for a year 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 miserable and so they could feel better. Who would even do that?
My happy ending: I've made a lot of amazing friends in my new school and on Taylor Connect. I guess my old friends don't even like Taylor and they probably think I'm lame. Haha! You know what? They don't know what they're missing.
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 nerdy dance. I'm not the best dancer, I'm not very sophisticated either. But I'm over that now.
I truly admire you for reading my disorganized chaos! You are awesome and now one of the nicest people on Taylor Connect, dun dun dun!
Please, in case of any spelling errors or grammatical errors, feel free to tell me about them! It's usually me who spots them, but it's harder when it's not Icelandic I'm dealing with.
I'm sorry if this is the MOST random profile you've ever read before.
I fell in love with Taylor's haircut just as soon as I saw it for the first time. I think it was kind of a daring thing to do and I wanted to CHANGE my hair. But I never did. It took me a year to do this because I always chickened out and just asked for the usual trimming. I'm so glad I did this because it's different. My hair used to be A LOT longer than it is now. I chopped...
