Happy October little lambs! But more importantly, HAPPY TAYLOR SWIFT “1989” ALBUM RELEASE MONTH!!!!
I’m obsessed with T. Swift and I don’t care who knows it (AKA everyone who knows me knows it whether they care or not). My first encounter with her was actually in person at a mall in Atlanta, Georgia when I was like 16. She was brand new to the scene and was at an FYE music store signing autographs. Ready for the “so I met her and she was wonderful” part of the story? Yeah…didn’t happen. My sister and I decided we didn’t care to swing by the event because we didn’t even really know who she was.
………..I really never regret anything, but boy do I regret that day in the mall!!! Ah, hindsight is 20/20.
ANYWAY. I did at least see her gorgeous blonde curly locks that day and became a full fledged fan a couple years later when she released the Fearless album. I related so much to all of the songs…she was singing about mean girls and dumb boys in high school and I was in high school and agreeing to every lyric. She’s just a bit older than me, so it’s like we’ve gone through things at the same time.
I’m really excited for 1989 because it’s Taylor’s first “official” pop album. I’m from the south so I totally appreciate country music…but I’ve enjoyed watching her sound evolve to what it is now. And HELLO, she writes all her own stuff! How many pop artists can say that these days? And she’s obsessed with cats. And she loves to bake. And she loves her fans. Basically, we’re soul sisters.
But I’ll stop gushing (for now). Are you a Swiftie like me? 26 more days!!
