I’m Shima :) I'm 19. I'm from Manchester, UK. 13th of April is my birthday and evidently, like Taylor, my lucky number's also 13 :) I want to thank you for stopping by my profile :) if you've got a question or just want to fangirl over Taylor, don't be afraid to drop a comment or a message me – I don’t bite :)
Oh, and I over use the smiley emoticon :) - don't hate! :P

A little about me, well, I'm pretty much your average nineteen-year old but kinda, sorta....different. I don't claim to be perfect – but I sure am fearless :)

Thanks to Taylor, I'm all about living in the moment. No more holding onto the past and really going out there and being fearless instead :)
I'm currently studying Fashion Design at University and about to start my second year. I've loved all things artsy since I was a kid so I knew I wanted to do something in that field so I chose Fashion. I'm really inspired by Taylor's style and hope that one day, who knows, maybe I can design her wardrobe for her or design a dress that she'll perform in or wear down the catwalk :)

I absolutely love travelling and hope to travel quite a bit when Taylor brings her RED tour to Europe and see her in as many cities and arenas as possible.
I love the idea of packing everything up and going on a journey to a part of the world I've never seen before.

Being on TC has also turned me into an keen CD collector thanks to many swifties - Dan, Dave & Emily to name a few :) Although my collections not huge (I'm just starting out) it's such a fun hobby collecting rare editions of Taylor's CD's, I recommend you to consider it :P

29.03.2011 - THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE

So, I got the chance to finally come along to Taylor's ONLY date in Manchester, UK on her UK leg of the Speak Now World Tour. And one word: wonderstruckingly-fantastically-amazingly-beautiful. Okay, so maybe that's more than one word (and a few made-up ones too) but the night was fantastically magical. It was the first time I’d ever seen her - live. I couldn't make it to her Fearless Tour in '09 but I still have the tickets. But, this night definitely made it all the more worthwhile. I'm still not over it. I was in the centre of the arena, 8th row from the stage and Taylor looked at me a couple of times (at my ridiculously bright banner I’m guessing) All I can say was that I’m still in awe, several months later!

I can’t wait for Taylor to bring her Red Tour to the UK. I know she’s touring the US right now and then she’s going to head over to Australia but I wish I could count down the days until I see this song performed live…

Seriously, All Too Well gives me goosebumps everytime I hear it. There’s a huge lump in my throat when I listen to it alone, and I can literally feel every emotion that Taylor expresses. Even though I’ve never gone through the motions Taylor’s talking about in the song, I feel like I can relate. To me, it’s a sad song. A personal one and it makes me idolise Taylor so much more knowing that she went through this, through all the hurt and heartbreak and strong emotions and came out the other end a strong enough person to write about it and share it to the world – share how she felt. It’s such a powerful song and I think it really sums Taylor up as an artist; its just sheer talent that leaves me speechless everytime. I really can’t wait to see her perform this live.


Taylor Swift (of course!), Lady Antebellum, Paramore, Lifehouse, Carrie Underwood, Backstreet Boys, Kate Voegele, Birdy, One Republic, The Civil Wars, Coldplay, Christina Perri, Ed Sheeran, Jason Walker, Digital Daggers and I'd go on but you'll probably be here all day ;)
Books: Hush Hush Series, Fallen Series, Twilight Saga, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games Series, A Beautiful Dark by Jocelyn Davies, Forbidden by Syrie James and anything by Nicholas Sparks. I'm a sucker for anything romantic really ;)
TV: The Vampire Diaries, Revenge, Pretty Little Liars, 90210, 2 Broke Girls, CSI: Miami, CSI: New York, The Mentalist, Once Upon A Time, Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill and many, many more ;)

I also love cats. And ketchup (I'm on of those that puts ketchup on ketchup). And meeting new people for the first time. And California.
I've always wanted to go there & finally got my wish For my 18th Birthday in 2012. Word of advice, if you've not been there, what are you waiting for?! I fell helplessly in love with the place. If I could, I'd happily live right there in the middle of Venice Beach + Santa Monica. It's my idea of heaven on Earth.
We will meet again California. One day :)

I also love you (no lie!) for taking the time and reading this. I'm pretty sure you had better things to do :) I don't bite so hit that comment/message button! (:
Bye ...for now :)

Here are my fave music video's from Miss. Taylor :)


And lastly...

Oh and PS:....

    No problem haha! Kind of, I heard one bit of thunder but I was still half asleep so I missed the rest, and by the time I woke the weather was fine again! :) Yeah hahaha!
    Haha, yeah, I always think, the more days that go by without seeing one, the more chance you have of seeing one tomorrow! Haha, I'm sure they get suffocated by the dust, and the bad gets disposed off every so often, I do sometimes worry about them crawling out the end haha! Haha probably!

    Cool! That sounds interesting, I didn't know you could get summer projects at uni! Haha, I bet you'll be able to write a great article on that then! :D

    I have to help my dad with building our house next week, but at least I get paid, it's hard work though :(
    Haha, well I seem to have picked up a habit of going to bed at like 2am and getting up quite late, I have to give my sister a lift to work in the morning though so I think I'll either go to sleep early or be tired!

    Not much planned for the rest of this week I don't think, just the normal TC, TV and exercise haha! :P

    Apologies for the late reply too! I've just had so many things going on! It's much more pleasant now it's cool :D And I think it actually rained a bit earlier :L Yeah, she doesn't understand it, but at least she enjoys listening to Taylor, and she sings along to her songs :) That really would be awesome! We could all bond that way haha! :) Don't get me started on spiders, whenever I see one, I jump up straight away, then watch it in case it runs away, if it's in my room I get it with the vacuum cleaner :P Thankfully I haven't seen any big ones this year :) The theory isn't really that hard, just learn a few facts, apply common sense, practice the hazard perception part and you'll be fine :) Awww :( That sounds tasty! Can always listen to some music if you're doing laborious tasks :P Hmm, well I didn't wake up till midday haha, spent some time on TC, watched the finale of the Tour de France, watched Top Gear, then also the Moto GP :)

    I will enjoy it! ;) Haha, I'm not worried if my sister doesn't come though :P That would be amazing, we could all sing and dance along together! :D Haha, I have a net over my window to stop the bugs coming in! :P I may do, will get me through any boredom I have :P Best to get it done, then you don't have to worry about it later :) Haha, I speed a bit but they prefer if you don't on your driving test ;) Thanks, I suppose it's not too bad :) Yeah, I like it now it's cooler, a lovely breeze coming in my bedroom window :) Haha, yeah, it's been good, went swimming earlier :P You up to anything interesting?

    I will definitely save up for good tickets for the concerts I think :) Yeah, definitely staying away from home, I think I get about £9700 :D I can't remember if they do or not, I think they may do something if you get an A*, which is a possibility in my D.T :) I think my sister showed an interest in coming along as well, she's not a Swiftie but she does like listening to Taylor, yeah, I think everyone in the UK thread thinks it would be a great idea, I think if we all arrived early then it would be less crowded and we could hang out for a while first :) Hahaha! I ought to buy the box set when I have some money, they are great films :D Yeah, driving instructors don't like speed haha, you will enjoy driving a lot more after you've passed your test, get to put your foot down more! ;) I passed after 6 lessons ;) Yeah, it's pretty hot still haha! We had to turn our cooker off because it was so hot! Sorry for the slow reply, been a busy bee this afternoon/evening :)
