Taylor Connect

Hi Swifties!
My name is Imogen and I’m fifteen. I was born in that overcast, rainy place known as the UK – the part called England. I think it’s important that you know that I’m extremely clumsy, I have insane hair, and I love How I Met Your Mother.

I’ll start with the fact that I love Taylor. I don’t think there is just one specific thing that I love about her though. I really love that she writes all of her own songs. I think it makes them a lot more personal, and as a fan I feel like she trusts us with her stories. I think it’s important that celebrities – especially when they’re as successful as Taylor – can trust their fans. I think writing her own songs also means that we can relate to them on a whole other level than people who sing songs written for them. We see the pain, or the happiness, or the confusion, or the anger that Taylor felt when she was writing the songs, and we can connect with that. I also love how much she cares about her fans. I think the relationship she has gone out of her way to create with her fans is beautiful. I really love how much thought she puts into everything too. Whether it’s a tour, or an award show performance, or a CD, or a lyric booklet you can see how much time she's put into everything. I’m really proud to call myself a Swiftie because we really are all so supportive of each other and kind to each other. I’ve met so many amazing friends because I’m a Swiftie – shout out to Ash (MzCutiePiee2) because she’s awesome and lovely. I feel so lucky to be able to say I’ve done that and that I know those people. It amazes how easy it can be to become friends with people from all over the world and be so alike and form such strong friendships when we're from opposite sides of the world. A lot of those people have taught me so much about the world that I might have never known had I not discovered Taylor and met all of you wonderful Swifties. I’m really lucky to have been able to see Taylor in concert three times – once on the Speak Now World Tour in Birmingham, and twice in London on the Red Tour. If you’ve never seen Taylor live please don’t give up hope. Every Swiftie deserves to see her, and I’m sure you will get the chance.

I actually really enjoy school. I only have one year left before I 'finish' school, which is crazy/scary/surreal/weird to think about. I’m currently in Year 10 (kind of the equivalent of 9th Grade in the US) and I’m doing my GCSEs. If you want to know about the subjects I’m studying, read on. If not, you can skip the rest of this paragraph. The subjects I’m taking for GCSE are: English (Language and Literature), Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, French, Computing and PE (these are the subjects that I had to take – it varies on what school you go to and whether you’re in England or Wales). The subjects I chose to take were Music, Business and History. As far as school subjects go, I am not one for art or anything where I have to use any type of creativeness (besides Music, but that is a special exception). I hated Art when I had to do it – probably down to the fact that I’m absolutely hopeless at drawing – and I tend to hate the subjects I’m best at. I love, love, love Physics and Chemistry, but I don’t care much for Biology. I quite like Maths but I struggle with some topics. I hate PE and anything sporty. When I've finished my GCSEs I plan on doing my A-Levels, but I'm not sure if I want to go to college rather than staying on at my school's Sixth Form to do them or not, mainly because I kind of want to study Law for A-Level, but there's only one place I've found (so far) that offers it as a course, and it's one of the colleges. Wherever I end up, I hope to study Psychology, Law, Chemistry/Sociology and Biology/History, and then hopefully go on to study something in the Criminology/Criminal Psychology field in university.

I’m not really much of an interesting person. I’m slightly socially awkward in real life, but it does depend on the situation. I will quite happily book a table at a restaurant when none of my friends want to and I will be the one to ask if a shop has something in stock if someone needs it, but I don’t like talking to people my own age. I find that I don't have much in common with a lot of the people my age so the conversations just get awkward really quickly. Online, however, I have no problem with it. Maybe it’s because most of the people I talk to online are Swifties so I feel like I can fangirl with them and we have more to talk about. I also - generally - get along with boys better than I get along with girls. I don't fall out/fight/argue with many (not any, really) people because I don't see the point in it, but girls can be extremely frustrating.

My music taste is pretty varied. I will listen to pretty much anything. Rap and dance/electronic are the only genres I can think of that I really try and avoid listening to. This is probably because when I was growing up my parents listened to a lot of different genres of music. I’ve played piano since I was six too, so I’ve been able to explore different styles of music that most people my age wouldn’t have listened to. I tend to lean towards country music more than anything though, thanks to Taylor. I don't follow many other artists besides Taylor, but I would call myself a Care Bear (Carrie Underwood fans), and I love Hunter Hayes, Florida Georgia Line, Boys Like Girls and Ed Sheeran. I've never been a boyband kind of girl, but I do quite like The Vamps and 5 Seconds of Summer, although I'm not sure if they're classed as 'boybands' or not.

My life is made up of music, TV, fangirling and YouTube. I rarely do anything that isn’t one of those unless I’m doing schoolwork (which at the moment is far too often). I’m really good at falling up stairs and injuring myself. I’ve always dreamed of living anywhere but the UK, and if I could live in America (Nashville, specifically) I would be very happy. Not that there’s anything wrong with living in the UK, it just rains a lot and really isn’t as interesting as tourism booklets and adverts make out. Don’t get me wrong – parts of the UK are beautiful and are great for tourists, just nowhere near where I live. There are just fields full of sheep. There are a lot of sheep. And now I’m sat staring out the window at the rain wishing I could be in Nashville, trying to figure out what to write besides that I’m sat staring out the window at the rain wishing I could be in Nashville. I’m also conscious of how long this is getting…

I’m pretty easy to talk to (I’ve been told), so if you ever want to say ‘hi’ feel free to send me a message on here/YouTube/Twitter/Ask.fm. It might take me a little while to reply, but I will eventually. If you want to be my friend just ask!

Sorry this has been so long!

    Hey Swifties! I managed (well, my mom managed) to get tickets for the show on the 4th of February in London. I was just wondering if anyone else is going on that day?

    Hello there. You may or may not know who I am, so allow me to introduce myself. My name is Vince Favetta. You might know me from one of the many blogs I’ve written, or you might have gotten a message from me a while back asking you to participate in what became the “Red Lyric Video”. Today, however, I am coming to you to talk about a brand new project.

    You already know this if you’ve ever been anywhere near my page or read a single word of stuff I’ve written, but four years ago I had a chance encounter with Taylor, that, in many ways, changed my life. After all, it was that very event that brought me to Taylor Connect a while back, and so many people here have become so much a part of my life’s ever-expanding story. But from the moment I created my very own page, I had a dream. I dreamt that one day I would get the chance to look Taylor in the eye and thank her for all she’s done to me. Sure, I could write a letter or just type out a message, but I believe that there are some words that take on a whole new meaning when you look someone in the eye and say them. Things like “Thank you”. Things like “I love you”. Things like “You changed everything”.

    With that goal in mind, I began to create a project that would allow all of the Swifites that had become just as much authors in this story to help write the next chapter. To decide whether or not I should get to see Taylor again and thank her. But as the project expanded, as people came in and brought countless ideas to the table, something dawned on me. The project 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. Whether you have read anything I’ve ever written or have never even heard my name until this message, this 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.

    That's so awesome! Your story is really cool, I like hearing other swifties talk about how they became fans as well as how they got inspired by her. And I became a swiftie on my thirteenth birthday when my mom bought me Taylor's Fearless album. It was my very first album of Taylor's that I've ever owned and after that I just kept listening to her songs. I've heard her older songs before I became a fan but when I turned 13 that's when I officially became a fan (:
