I am awful at replying to PMs and comments. Please don't hate me.
Hi :) I'm Emma and I'm 18. I live in England, somewhere up in the north where it's not really rainy much and people actually talk to each other when on public transport.
I've been a fan since 2010, and the five years since then have been some of the best and the worst of my life. Probably the biggest highlights of that period though have been getting to see Taylor live in London on 1/2/14 as well as her following me on Tumblr on 23/11/14. I just really appreciate the fact that, even though I've never met her, I feel like now I have this close connection with Taylor-she can see anything I post, be it something praising her songs or me talking about how I've had a good day.
I really like history. I'm going to go to university to study it and as such I spend a lot of time reading history books. I seem to be building up an area of expertise surrounding the Holocaust due to also being an ambassador for the Holocaust Educational Trust. However, I also love reading about things that you hear about less frequently, like North Korean political prisoner camps or the Spanish civil war or even more novel stuff such as the history of chocolate.
I also love reading about strong women. After the past few years of growing up without any sort of adult female figure in my life, it's sort of become important for me to read up on women who have carved their own way in this life and are changing the world. Whether it's someone as important to changing the world view of women as Malala Yousafzai or someone who is showing that women can succeed in male dominated industries such as Grace Helbig, I just find it pretty inspiring and also incredibly important to read about them and learn about their lives and how we can learn from them and try to change our own little corners of the world.
I watch a lot of TV as a means of escapism. My favourite shows are Gossip Girl, which has had me wanting to visit New York since I saw it, Grey's Anatomy, which is a show that I appreciate for improving my medical knowledge as well as making me feel all of the emotions, Downton Abbey, which has me wanting to be a lady in the early 20th century, and Veronica Mars, which has me wanting to be more quick witted and also fits into the whole strong women idea I talked about before.
If you want, you can message me or comment on my wall. I like talking to new people. I can't promise I'll respond quickly, but I will respond eventually.
I got my Taylor Connect Is Life badge on the 30th June 2014!
