Hi :) I'm Em and I'm 18 and no longer the dancing queen. I'm from England and living here is alright really. I really appreciate that there’s so much variety here landscape wise. I love that we have so much countryside. I dislike bustling cities and crowds of people; I’m much happier with trees and nature and fresh air. One of my favourite places is the Lake District, because it’s just so naturally beautiful and so peaceful. I want to see as much of world as I can in my life.
I love making lists and I love reading lists. I love looking on Buzzfeed and looking at their lists of things like 27 surreal places to visit before you die or 56 life lessons you learned from John Green. I may be a nerdfighter. I just think it’s pretty damn amazing that two brothers have managed to create such a cool community that is so involving and creative and generous. That whole community has helped me learn so much about myself and the world and it’s just so cool that that can happen by two brothers posting videos on the internet.
I like music quite a lot. Obviously it comes as no surprise that Taylor Swift is my favourite singer. I just love that she can write about her life and have people of all genders all over the world listening to it and being like “This fits my situation so perfectly”. I also love Colbie Caillat because her music is so bubbly (see what I did there?) and feel good and it just makes me happy to listen to. In a way I think her and Taylor are very similar because they write such relatable songs and both of them are inspirations to me because they’re just themselves so unashamedly and I want to be like that.
I can never read enough. I like that reading gives me the chance to escape my own little world for a while and explore someone else’s point of view on the world. I also think books can totally change the way we view the world. Books have taught me to imagine people more complexly, that what you say does matter and that it’s ok to not have everything in life sorted out, which was definitely a hard lesson for me to learn and I’m still trying to come to grips with the fact that I am only 18, I don’t need to have it all figured out yet.
If you read all this, I like you. We should be friends.
I got my Taylor Connect Is Life badge on the 30th June 2014!
