I am an old soul. Always have been and always will be. My friends would say I am a kind one soul as well. I cannot imagine my life without music. Books are as much a part of me as breathing.

OMG TaylorSwift! This combines the best of two things; cats and autumn. 

I am so ready for this new era to begin, you have no idea. RED era was/is important to me on so many levels. It got off to a rough start. My first boyfriend broke up with me on album release day. Your first’s will always be the hardest, I think. We met online on a dating site (that is a WHOLE ‘nother story) and began writing after discovering a mutual love of Taylor Swift. He was stationed in Afghanistan at the time, but was going to be finished with his military employment in the summer. Because he was originally from a town over 300 miles away from me, we decided that he was going to move to be closer to me as we got to know each other better. A week after he moved down, he broke things off. Most of our relationship was spent apart and I always wondered if I really loved HIM or the idea of him. The reason I am including all of this backstory is because it played a part in the way I listen to RED, as an album and as individual songs. The songs on RED have helped me cope with my first break-up, my brother’s breakdown and mine as well. It is so hard to see a loved one suffer, especially when you can’t help. Looking back on it, there was a lot of self-destructive behavior going on for me and my brother. His suicide attempts and stints at the mental ward were tough on my whole family. I did not deal with it in the best way. I ended up hurting myself physically and isolating myself rather than talking about it.   

Without realizing it, RED was there for me when I didn’t have anyone else. Over time, things have gotten better. I was able to dance to 22 on my 22nd birthday, feeling happy, free, confused and lonely at the same time. I cried over All Too Well because it felt like she wrote it for me and I grew to love Holy Ground. This album will always hold a special place in my heart. There are so many memories wrapped up in it. Some better than others. It has managed to capture all the sadness, heartbreak and happy little moments in my own life in the past two years. 

So, thank you taylorswift. Thanks for RED and helping me get through the past two years. Let’s hope that 1989 kicks everything else to the curb!

So my friends, we wait to catch a glimpse of the elusive Taylorus Swifti Americanus. Commonly known as Taylor Swift, this rare and exquisite creature is known for her long legs, impeccable sense of style, and her wonderful singing. Only coming out on the Internet sporadically, the Taylor Swift has been known to spread joy and love through words of encouragement and great sense of humor.

Now we must sit back and wait…
