Taylor Connect


(Banner made by the wonderful All I Know Is A Simple Name)

Hello everyone! I’m EmmaLou13, 16 years old and live in the UK, and just like everyone else on this site, I love Taylor Swift!
Taylor is my role model. Why? - Because, she is so inspirational. The things that she writes about in her songs help so many people. Taylor has shown me that it’s ok to be different, and to follow your dreams!

How I became a Swiftie:
I first became a Swiftie in 2011. I was listening to the radio, and Love Story came on, after the song finished the man on the radio said that it was by Taylor Swift. I remember thinking "I don't know who she is, but I love that song!".
One of my friends had two albums called Fearless and Speak Now and she recommended I listened to them. I then knew that I was in love with Taylor Swift’s music! I then kept going on YouTube, and watched as many videos and performances from Taylor as possible. I then brought her three albums: Taylor Swift, Fearless and Speak Now. I've listened to them constantly ever since!

Taylor Connect:
I have been a part of Taylor Connect for a long time now, I joined the old TC in 2011, however the website closed down, and after that I couldn't make a new account. But In August 2012 I was finally able to make a new account! I've been here ever since :)
I’ve made so many friends on TC, all of which are so lovely and kind and I’m so glad TC has introduced me to so many lovely people!
All of Taylor's songs are beautiful in one way or another. There are songs I can relate to more than others, but I love all of Taylor’s songs! My favourites are: Long Live and Red.

I got tickets through the TC presale to go and see Taylor Swift on her Red Tour in London at the O2 Arena on 1st February 2014!!!!!!!!!!!!
It was the BEST experience of my life! I was very lucky as I had really good seats and when Taylor walked to the B-stage she walked past my block, looked at me and waved! It was a night I shall never ever ever forget, like ever! You can read my tour experience here:

About me:
I never know what to say about myself, so I will just sum up a few points:
- I’m 16 and have now finished school. I’m small and I don’t care, small is cool :P
- Jealous of Taylor Swifts looks, seriously she is so perfect why can’t I look like that!?
- Hoping to work with children as my future carer, whether it is in a primary school or a nursery, but I change my mind like every 5 minutes so by the next time I update my profile I will probably be doing something completely different!
- My family and friends mean a lot to me, I’ve got the most supportive family, and the most amazing group of friends.
- Shy with people I don’t know that well, confident around people I know and trust.
- I worry pretty much about everything!
- I like to be here for people and am always happy to talk to anyone, if you want some advice or just a general chat! I love to make friends, so please send a friend request!
- Love to be a happy, cheery person who loves to have a laugh! Can get moody and have an “attitude” but hay-ho!

Taylor Swift is my all time favourite artist, however other music I am into include:
- Ed Sheeran: I was lucky enough to see him at The Red Tour in London, he was the special guest on the 1st February 2014, and Ed and Taylor sung Lego House, it was amazing! I love his two albums + and X. My favourite songs include: A Team; You Need Me I Don’t Need You; Drunk; Wake Me Up; Lego House; Sing; Don’t; Photograph and Take it Back.
- Little Mix: New Little Mix fan, lucky enough to be going to see them on the 26th July 2014, and I can’t wait! Love both their albums DNA and Salute. My favourite songs include: Salute; Move and Going Nowhere.

Shout outs:
- Uroosa13Swift : Uroosa is my TC best friend! I have been friends with Uroosa for over a year and a half now. Not only is Uroosa my TC best friend, I would also call her one of my best friends in real life. She has been there for me this whole time, and I couldn’t thank her enough for being there for me this whole time, and listening to me going on and on about pointless stuff! Uroosa has helped me get through so much, she has constantly been there for me, and always gives me the best advice! With her help and of course with the help of Taylor, I was fearless enough to tell the guy I liked that I liked him. So thank you Uroosa for helping me get through that! I couldn’t thank her enough for everything, she never fails to make me laugh and to cheer me up! I’m so thankful to have such a wonderful friendship with an amazing girl! We haven’t met in real life, but there is still time and I know that one day we will, and we have already planned it all!
If you are not already friends with Uroosa, please go and add her as a friend. She is such a wonderful person who will be a great friend and will make you laugh! Thank you so much for being a great friend Uroosa!!!!!!! Love you!!!!!! (Mr Green & King Bob – cuz we’re cool like that!) .

(^^ this is the flawless graphic she made me! love her so much!!)

(^^Uroosa also made me this! She is so sweet! I love her so much! Thank you babes!!)

Uroosa also made me these beautiful birthday graphics for my 16th birthday!:

Another shoutout to my buddy Michel, he is so awesome and amazing! He gives me great advice, and helps me and always finds a way to cheer me up! Our long conversations are great! Add him as a friend because he is awesome! Thanks for being there for me Michel!

Also thank you to everyone on the UK forum, been friends with many of them since I joined TC and they are all so brilliant, so thanks for being my friends, and so sorry I never come on chatzy, I will come on it one day and surprise you all!

Thank you to everyone on TC, I have met many amazing friends since I joined nearly 2 years ago!

So that’s about it, so thank you for reading! I love to make new friends and talk to as many of you as possible!
Bye bye x

Love me? Great. Hate me? Even Better. Think I am ugly? Don't look at me. Don't know me. Don't judge me. Think you know me? You have no idea!

    I'm lucky that I had a massive student loan! :) First of all she asked me how I was, I think she remembered me from the day before when I gave her my letter for Taylor! :) Then she said that I was very handsome and she mentioned how there was so many guys at the concerts compared to the last tour! :) Then as she was going I told her to thank Taylor for everything :) I see what you did there haha! :P That's so true, from when I became a swiftie I listened to only Taylor for like the whole of that year, her songs are so amazing that you just never lose that feeling when listening to them! It's definitely worth going, much cheaper than a holiday abroad anyway! :) Yeah, it is hard to just get started sometimes, and hard to keep motivation when the weather's bad, but I've got the bug now so I can't stop it haha! For me cycling is easier than running and swimming, those two sports just make me feel like my lungs are going to give up haha! That's understandable! The one time I went to the Isle of Wight we stayed at a house with an outdoor swimming pool, proud to say that I tried swimming in it, it was preeetty cold haha! I don't think I've ever really swum in the sea, I've swum in a lake before whilst kayaking! :) Oh cool, that's about the time when I have to drive down to do my resits! There's a swiftie meetup at Hyde Park in London on 22nd August so I'm going down to London a few days early so I can go to that! :) And thanks, I'm going to be properly prepared this time! Well I probably want to do something involving motorsport, or some kind of engineering thing involving fast cars and stuff :) Have you thought about what you want to do for A levels and after that?

    (take 2) I'm glad I did go to all 5, some people thought I was crazy for going to all 5 or said it was a waste of money seeing the same thing 5 times, but I don't agree with those people :) The first 3 shows I went to allowed me to take in the concert from all the different parts of the arena, you get such a different view from the pit compared to the floor or the 100 blocks! The 4th and 5th shows because I had floor seats I managed to give my letter for Taylor to Andrea and then on the final night I got a quick chat with Andrea and a selfie with her!! :D So it was definitely worth it, even if I did have to eat cheap food all year at uni haha! Taylor is the first artist who I've really fallen in love with, normally when it comes to music I like maybe a few songs from an artist but then I'm not that impressed with their other songs, so it's awesome that she was my first concert :)
    Well we've not been to Wales for a few years now, but when I was younger we used to go camping in the North part of Wales almost every year! I think we normally stayed somewhere near Porthmadog as there's a really nice railway near there and my dad likes railways! :)
    I've been cycling most of my life, but I got into it properly in 2012 when Bradley Wiggins won the Tour de France! I don't really go running very often, at uni I do quite a lot of walking though, Tesco is like 20 minutes away from campus and walking all the way back with heavy shopping bags certainly works up a sweat haha! I've not been swimming for like a year, should really get back into it but it's just finding the time. When do you find out your results? I got mine last week and I have to do a couple of resits so I can progress to the next year, spent too much time enjoying myself during the first year haha! :L

    It was, I was very lucky, went to all 5 for probably the same cost as someone from Scotland going to one, simply because I live close :) I didn't realise the Red tour was your first ever concert as well! Certainly too good an opportunity to miss! Especially if it's on your doorstep :) I love Welsh accents as well, we had a teacher in secondary school and he had the best Welsh accent ever! I wouldn't get bored if he did an assembly because his voice was so interesting to listen to haha! I forget how many times I've been to Wales but we mostly go to the Northern part, there's some great landscapes! For someone that apparently doesn't do enough exercise then you really are blessed with a good figure, you can't deny it haha :P I go cycling 3-4 times a week, it doesn't really do anything for your upper body though haha!

    That's really convenient!! Almost as lucky as Taylor touring in London and my uni being on the end of the tube network :P Are you going with friends? I'm sure you'll have an amazing time :) I think the furthest that way that I've been is Dorchester, and even though that's not too far west it still felt pretty cut off haha! We tend to go to Wales or Scotland if we don't go on holiday abroad. One of my uncles has a chalet in Cornwall actually :) Yeah, I'm doing more of that today, the 2nd half of that concreting! You must be blessed with a naturally good figure then ;)

    Haha, yeah it did :) Isn't it annoying when technology goes wrong? Ooo, that sounds awesome! I have a couple of their songs! Where abouts are you going to see them? Don't think I've ever been to Devon! Takes years to get down to that part of the country from the North haha! I'm not up to a great deal really, no holidays to speak of at least. Just doing some work on extending our house, and also been doing a lot of cycling which is always fun! :) (apart from the part where you get sunburnt)
