I am a writer, singer, guitarist, basketball player, swimmer, cheerleader, dancer, and poet. I love Instagram, baking, drawing, and eating. I have always loved these exact things, and that hasn't changed. I am not confined to only writing songs about love, but anything that makes you feel something. Riding horses, summer, or even being ignored. I understood that last one most about 4 years ago. It was one of the hardest times of my life. And when people weren't there for me,
Nobody cared. Nobody got just how painful it was. To be on the outside, looking in. I had been writing for a year or two and it helped. But I didn't know where to go as a writer. And even with my guitar, I still somehow felt alone. Then I discovered Taylor Swift. She is who I want to be, in almost every aspect of her career. She got it, and knew how much it hurt, not having the community and opportunities of everyone else. As much as I hate to admit to needing people she is a very necessary character in my story.
She always was.
Her music saved me from falling into a deep bottomless pit of sadness and selflessness that keeps people here.
She saved me.
I'm from a small town, but it's not what you think. There may be a 2,000 population, but that doesn't mean we are all friends. There was a quote in a Stephen King book that said, "In a small town, where everywhere you went you were tripping over people you hate."
Well that's life here. And I want to be somewhere that I can get opportunities as a writer and a performer. I want to go to Nashville.
I have had this desire since I was very little to be there. I was drawn to that place.
When my cousin was severely injured in the hospital, she was at Vanderbilt. I was 7. Not yet old enough to understand the amazing academics or unrealistically high standards, I decided that was where I wanted to go. Not just eventually, but as an undergraduate. I didn't yet understand the work involved, but I was ready.
Now, an Honors student, I am working closer. Closer to the school of my dreams. Closer to Music City. Closer to becoming what I want, and doing what I love. And closer to meeting you.
Even at a low-scale public school in the South-East I'm still working. Still hoping for this idea to work. And still yet, hoping this work and patience pays off. And dreaming of one day I might meet the legendary, Taylor Swift.
Thank you for reading this whole long thing, and if anyone ever needs to talk just message me. I'm here. And I promise I will listen.
