Hey guys! My name is Sara Líf. I was born on June 11th 1994 in Reykjavík, Iceland. I grew up speaking both Icelandic and Danish because my parents moved to Denmark to study when I was three years old. We moved back when I was eight and by then I had fallen in love with languages. I sometimes made up my own or pretended I could speak fluent French. That must have sounded really, really terrible and I'm glad I only did that in private. I went on to study French so no one will ever hear me pretending to speak it ever again. I'm not fluent but hey, maybe one day. That would be amazing.

I love writing and reading. I like the smell of new books. Old books can smell good too of course but I prefer new ones. I don't usually tell people about this, I only tell my friends and even they think I shouldn't tell anyone else about it. But hey, I know we're all friends here right? Because we all care about Taylor and her music so we must have more things in common.

I became a true, dedicated fan of Taylor's after her video for Mean was released on YouTube almost exactly a month before my birthday. On May 13th 2011. Before I saw that video I was just a casual fan of hers. I liked her music but I only listened to her singles and adored her music videos. I knew nothing about her. School had been really awful and hard on me. Mainly because I exchanged schools when I was about thirteen which is a really awful age to make any changes like that. It was hard to make friends in a small town where everyone already had formed their little friendship groups. And then came the teenage years. What a mess. I was afraid to be myself because people made fun of you for it. It was hard to be the new girl and the one being made fun of. People make fun of each other for the smallest, most meaningless things. I had been somewhat of an extrovert at my other school, I sang in front of my class for the talent show. But at the new school I was told I couldn't sing and it really hurt me. I never sang again.

Well, until I heard that song. I stopped caring. And not all at once. But it helped me a lot. When I graduated and went to high school (if you will, the school system is different in Iceland). I auditioned for the school choir and I got in. I loved singing with this choir and I made really good friends. My other friends at my old school were all about being negative and saying negative things about others so we fell out. When I shared something exciting with them, an opportunity I got or something.. They would make fun of it somehow. Like it really wasn't that exciting. Don't ever do that. Just be happy for your friends.

Iceland & northern lights.

Summer: daylight for 23 hours!

I'm not very often on Taylor Connect but I miss it and I might try to spend more time here. I need to turn on my notifications or something because I always forget about this site. I was an active member on this forum during the Speak Now Era. The summer before RED was released I had made a tumblr blog that now goes by the URL taypunzel. I've been there ever since and I'm always online. Creeping. It was fun before Taylor joined and even more fun after she joined during the 1989 era. Everyone joined tumblr and interacted with her. That was amazing and fun while it lasted. I kind of like tumblr more again because now there's piece and quiet. Either way I don't really mind.

Fun fact about Christmas in Iceland (and because I think Taylor would like this fact because thirteen is her lucky number and xmas is her fave): We have 13 yule lads and we celebrate 13 days of Christmas. Children put their shoe in their window and get little presents from each and every yule lad, every night, for 13 days.

    it's not nuts at all... we have a couple in the states here that apparently are getting set to erupt or could be... one did, years ago, sort of and blew half the mountain side off. That was Mt. St. Helens, in Alaska, I believe... but it seems we have one in Yosemite National Park that's also starting to act up. I know there have been active volcanoes in Hawaii for ages but... to have some actually on the actual landmass you live on... is kind of scary yet fascinating.
    I just hope the one there continues to not effect you or any of your loved ones...
