Dead Friend,
I am writing to you because they said you'd listen. And because you know who Taylor Swift is. If you don't remember who she is, she's the one winning all of the awards right now and is the queen of all queens. Along with her Princess of Kitty Town Meredith (& the new arrival Olivia!).

My name is Joli, like Angelina JOLIE, but you can call me that girl or Taylor's Nerd Fan or Swiftie #130000000000000000000000001.
I guess you'd like to know about me. Well you can picture me anyway you'd like, I'm here for Taylor, and Taylor alone. But just know, I am a girl. There aren't a lot of explaining words for me except 'boring'. All I talk about {according to my friends} is Taylor, her music, or books. But hey, what else can I be excited about? {things these days, there are so many disappointing people and it's hard to find ones that haven't or will not disappoint you.}
Well, I'll let you know that I have three younger siblings {no names to you} and I do have an okay life {Okay? Okay.}. I am in high school and I'm still scared. I live with nice people, I have nice acquaintances that surround me {I only have one real best friend, the others are just there. i'm like their second chose} and I am doing okay. School stresses me out a lot, and even though it's my worst subject, I love English. I love to write, read, do anything where I can make up my own characters or stories. Most of the characters I make have some connection to me whether it's the looks or the personality.
{Ah! I mentioned books so I must go into that subject.} As I've told, call me Taylor's Nerd Fan. To me, a nerd isn't those people in those old movies who wear tucked in shirts and get picked on by the Populars. To me, a nerd is someone who enjoys reading and would rather have that be their homework. And this doesn't apply to just reading. You could be a nerd at Science or Math or...well I hope you get the point.
So here I am, the reading Nerd fan. If you must know me more, I was given a letter at age 11 to go to Hogwarts and have been the Witch in Ravenclaw for 5 years now {Math nerds...I know I gave you my age.} but my home is Camp Half-blood where I train with the other Demigods {I am an Athena girl}. I live in Abnegation {although I am Divergent: Dauntless and Candor} but I visit my home roots in District 4. I do practice my skill as a Light Empath but I am more of a Werewolf. Along with competing at Hogwarts, i made it safely out of the Maze with Group B (Property of WICKED. Group B. The Mom). As you know, I am a girl so I am a Child of Eve.
I'm still 'new' to this book world though because I have a reading list I will never complete and I'm okay with that. One thing that you must know, I am a weird person {I keep a list of books that I have to read}. Apparently everyone I know who read TFIOS said that they cried {SPOILER} when Gus died. I didn't. I was mad like Hazel. All those people who came to his funeral they barely even knew Gus. Although I did cry for {SPOILER} Tris's death {poor Tobias}.
I've connected to each character in every book I've ever read {even the horrid ones} because each character possessed a personality that me, or anyone, could connect to. Harry, for example, was loyal to his friends, family, people who loved him. That is what I am. I'm one of those friends that will stick by you no matter what {and this applies to Taylor too!} and will constantly annoy you {I guess that's why I can't find any true friends}.
The big series that I've read {and I will keep adding to this list} is Chronicles of Narnia, Harry Potter, Percy Jackson and the Olympians/Heroes of Olympus, The Hunger Games, The Twilight Saga, The Caster Chronicles {Beautiful Creatures}, Divergent Trilogy, The Giver Quartet, The Maze Runner Series. The books {and I'll keep adding} that I've read that aren't in a series are Shift, Control, The Fault In Our Stars, Perks Of Being a Wallflower, Bridge to Terabithia, To Kill A Mockingbird, Along For The Ride, The Book Thief, The Clearing.
"In that moment, I swear, we were infinite."

When I first heard Taylor I was in 3rd grade. In 3rd grade I wasn't the popular person. In fact, I was that boring and stupid person. I guess you could say I was a wallflower. I didn't really have a best friend {although everyone else did} so I just kind of floated around to each little group and listened. Well, we were at the age where you should like the same music as me or you can't be my best friend. So there I was, a wallflower, trying to fit. The group leader {I know her so much better now.} said that blah-blah-blah song was really good and you should listen to it. So when I got home that day, I searched it up and was bored instantly. It was horrid {I love the word horrid for some unknown reason}. So I looked on the side {this was on YouTube} and I saw this cheerleader in a blue uniform who looked...hot...so I clicked on that and I watched the video. I instantly liked it and watched it over and over again until my mom needed the computer. But before I walked away, I made my mom watch the video and she loved it too. So the video, You Belong With Me by Taylor Swift, was on my mom's good side {which is so rare}. I kept listening to this song because it was so catchy and wonderfully lyrical and because I thought the song and the artist was just a one-hit-wonder {STUPID OF ME!}
Well, a few mouths later, {when I actually started making friends} and girl came up to me {again, names aren't important.} and she said she heard me humming YBWM so she told me about this other song that was by the same singer. She started singing the chorus to me 'Romeo save me they're tryin' tell me how to feel, this love is difficult, but it's real' and I loved it so much that I asked for the song title {it being Love Story}. That night I had it on repeat until I fell asleep.
Ever since then I've loved Taylor to the moon and back. I have gone on her Speak Now Tour {in a country, in a state, in a city, in an indoor stadium} with a friend who invited me. The sad thing is, I became a Swiftie right after The Fearless Tour was sold out at where she was coming that was closest to me, so I missed out on that tour. And then the SN tour, my friend invited me because I had told her that I was in love with Taylor and that she was so lucky to be going. Well, the friend that was originally going to go canceled at the last second, so my friend calls me and says to me 'You're going to the Speak Now tour with me. Get ready'. I was so excited and about to faint. Then when the Red Tour came along I quickly got tickets. Since I'm on TaylorConnect, I signed up for the Pit Tickets. I knew I didn't really have a chance so I wasn't really paying attention to the whole thing when I suddenly got an email about five months before my show saying I was picked for the pit ticket thing. I literally screamed. I was so happy I was screaming for at least an hour. Then I went on reading that I had another additional ticket for someone to come with me. Well, the friend that invited me to the SN tour was coming anyways along with mom and sister so I gave her the ticket. I was sooooooo lucky too because the seats that we had paid for were HORRID! Freaking on the top row, last seats so they were almost behind the stage. I mean, yes I know I had tickets and that's all I would ever want but...come on. Dad's go sit there if they don't want to be there. Everyone who actually wants to see Taylor should be lower...WAY lower. I have had the opportunity to go to TWO 1989 World Tour shows, the first one was down on the field of the stadium with just myself and my mom, and the second night was with friends. Since we got tickets years in advance, my friends and I had been planning the outfits we were going to wear and came up with the greatest outfits. But sadly, Taylor didn't have Loft 89 so we missed out on that.
All the tours are still fresh in my mind, and if you don't mind, I'll tell you one dreadful event that happened. While I was in the pit at the Red Tour, Taylor was about to sing Holy Ground {right after Red} and then she started walking back towards the main part of the stage {if you have ever seen the Red Tour stage} and she came to the section of the part of the pit where I was. Now, there was a mom in front me, probably there for her daughter or not, and Taylor came up to my section and was about to touch my hand when the mom elbowed me in the ribs and my chance of touching Taylor's hand slipped away...
Each time I think of that horrid {ha} event! my emotions go from jealousy to hurtful to sadness. Then I listen to a Taylor song and I feel better. But I still wish...
My mind always goes wonder off to the time when I didn't know Taylor. And I always wonder what I'd be like if I never knew Taylor. Then my mind starts wondering off to think 'what if there was a Swiftie school?' I mean, to me every subject would be 13000x better!
You must know I am loyal to Taylor. No one will ever come before her {except for my religion but I'm talking about other celebs}, but I do like other artists {the list could shrink or grow}. Ellie Goulding, Troye Sivan, Selena Gomez, Lana Del Ray, Bruno Mars and Avicii along with the band Imagine Dragons. For me, I don't care if the singer can't sing, I only care if the lyrics can relate to me or can give me a good message, then that's my kind of music.
"For You."

God, even though this is my bio and I get to tell you about me I feel so selfish. Ugh. Okay, well some last things about me. I love the rain, I love the colors green {any}, blue {any}, purple {any} and white. I do love movies {there's this one movie called Upside Down that SHOULD BE a book, but it's not}. They have to be adventurous and/or romantic and/or funny. I love to draw, I love to learn songs on my acoustic guitar, l am hopeless romantic {my relationships are always so complicated}, I hate being called a fangirl because that sounds too innocent so I'd like to be called a fanwarrior. I love roller-coasters {Orlando and Six Flags Magic Mountain is amazing!}, I love to dance in the rain {especially to Tay music}, and I love to ship {especially TaylorSquared, Zaylor Swifron AND, don't judge, Tavin}.
So, this is my ending, and please believe that things are good with me, and even when they're not, they will be soon enough.
And I will believe the same about you.

Love always,

i kind of hate the term fangirls.
it makes me think of an attractive,
cute, giggly teenage girl who flaps
her hands a lot.
that is not who we are
we are fanwarriors you slintheads
we give our lives to tv shows and
books and celebrities
we cry over them
we write about them
we're bloody hell STRONG

    Hello there. I'm sending you this message (in both private mail and as a comment on your page) because you were among those who both read the original "Taylor Reunion" project page AND messaged me about it in some way. Whether it was a simple encouraging post on the page itself or a suggestion that ultimately lead to the start of the project, you were among the people who propelled this forward. This project exists because of you: you're kindness inspired me to push forward and your insight helped to shape the project into what it is. So from the bottom of my heart, thank you.

    As I mentioned in the forum, this project has become much more than I had originally set it out to be. Originally, I simply wanted to continue the story. Our story. A story that began four years ago in a restaurant in Florida, and has since become fueled by the so many of you. But since then, it's become about so much more than thanking Taylor for the story. It became about the words that lie at the heart of it all. Thank you. We owe so many people so much, and I wanted to give people a chance to say it. I, for one, have found that more often than not we may think the words, but we never actually say them. We never speak now. We love our parents but we don't thank them for the immeasurable acts they do for us. We love our friends but we never thank them for adding untold beauty to our lives every day. We love Taylor, but we never get to thank her for giving us the means to express our deepest selves.

    And so, ultimately, The Thank You project has been born. In this very first stage, it has been set to an event page of Facebook, the link to which will be on the bottom of this post. On this page, when you click the "join" button, you are saying to your friends and to the world that you WILL speak now. You won't just keep the words in your head, but you WILL say the seemingly simple words that can change a life for good. Then, use the page and do just that. Thank the people you love. Thank your friends and your family, and tell them all the things you feel. And thank Taylor and her music. Thank her for a song, a lyric. Speak now and say how a lyric or an attitude has done so much for you. Then, invite other to do the same. Share the page on your own personal means of social media, be it Facebook, instagram, Twitter or whatever you use. Being a light in the world is a beautiful thing, but sharing that light with others is a miracle.

    So that is what I ask of you. Join the event, leave your Thanks, and Share the page. Join, Thank and Share. Steps as simple as the words themselves, yet potentially just as powerful. Speak now and let those people know that they are appreciated. That they are cherished. That they are loved. Whether it's the friend you see every day or the artist this site is meant for, every single person deserves to hear the words.

    Thank you. As promised, here is the link to the page.
