So, I vowed (to myself) that this blog would be about me and my life, NOT Taylor Swift and hers, but she is a huge part of my life so I decided I would write about this, just so you guys know for future reference. I’ve loved Taylor since I first heard Love Story way back in 2009, I bought her album soon after and have bought every album since (on the day it came out, without fail). I went to see her on The Speak Now World Tour in 2011 and that’s when it turned into a mild obsession. Posters of her adorn my walls, I follow her every move and I can’t go a day without listening to her music (It sounds creepy, but I’m not the only one!). She even follows ME on Tumblr. Her music has been there for me through everything, when I didn’t have a lot of friends, when school became more stressful, it’s been with me as I’ve grown and it has helped me become who I am. She has been such a huge inspiration to me and has influenced my life in so many ways, from how I dress to my views and morals.
I haven’t been to a Taylor Swift concert since 2011 and next week I’m going to two. I have never been more excited for anything in my life. I’ve had my t-shirt made since October last year, before the tickets even came out and I’ve spent months planning and preparing. I have everything from my shoes to my rain poncho decorated. I’m going to Manchester next Wednesday with my mum and my sister and I’m going to the Dublin show with the whole Irish Swiftie Squad and we are all standing together. I’ve never stood at a concert before either which makes it even more exciting. It’s gonna be one hell of a week. Only 4 days to go.
