I think it’s safe to say that age 22 has been kind to me.
I’M STILL REELING! To say that last night was a dream come true is a ridiculous understatement. Like so many other Swifties, Taylor has shaped my adolescence deeply. I’ve listened to her music through all every major heartbreak in my life, through my most carefree moments with friends, through the absolute terror and joy that is growing up.
What I love about Taylor’s songwriting is that even as she grows older, she stays true to her mission: to be candid about the impact of our relationships. Not just romantically, but as human beings. Our world glorifies cynicism, often mocking those who feel “too much” or “too deeply.” By choosing to write honest songs, Taylor stands for the opposite - and that is the root of my deep admiration. It is so important to stay vulnerable, especially in spite of pain and heartbreak. If we choose to let the world harden us, we kill an essential part of ourselves. Our vulnerability radically defines our lives, allowing us to foster deeper connections and truly experience the world around us.
The new album is no exception to this. Though it comes with a new, thrilling, unexpected sound, 1989 stays true to Taylor’s heart. I can’t wait for y’all to hear it!!
Thank you, beautiful Taylor Swift. Not just for letting me meet you and for being so dedicated to your fans, but also for choosing vulnerability time and time again.
