A Girl Named Girl
trying to find a place in this world
"When I was a teenager, I felt like we were always being stereotyped as being really intense and dramatic and passionate and hopelessly romantic and excitable. Now in retrospect, I think I need to let you know those things are amazing. I hope you never lose those things."

I really didn’t plan on posting this on tumblr, but I really want taylorswift to see my new tattoo. These thirteen words mean absolutely everything to me. Last September, I was lucky enough to have a friend that met her surprise me by getting her to write out this lyric for me. It’s been almost a year, but I finally was able to get the tattoo.

"Innocent" is a very personal song for me. It came out just a few months after my classmate took his own life and it was during a time that I was in a very dark place. I really hate talking about my history with self harm and being open about my anxiety problems because everyone will look at me like I’m trying to "use my sob story", but it’s so important to me that Taylor knows just how much she has helped me over the years. She has literally given me a reason to stay alive. She has brought so many good people and memories into my life and I can never thank her enough.

I got this tattoo at Black 13 studio in Nashville on September 13 before the Ed Sheeran concert. All those details already make it a very Swift situation, but that’s not even my favorite part. I got this tattoo on the five-year anniversary of the famous “Kanye incident” that inspired that lyric. I love looking back and seeing how much has changed in that amount of time for both Taylor and I. We have both grown so much and I know I might not be here today if it wasn’t for her. She has brought me confidence and strength and friendships that nobody else will ever understand.

I doubt she’ll ever see this, but I’m absolutely determined to get it to her somehow. One day I hope I will finally meet her and be able to show her in person and thank her and hug her, but for now I just want her to know that she is the reason I am here supporting her and that she means the world to me.

Did she say that a long time ago? The recent Rolling Stones article she did said she hasn’t driven alone in 5 years for safety reasons. Which is kinda sad but maybe she does still sometimes in Nashville because it’s her hometown and there’s not as many paparatzi.

A scientific breakdown of the models, alterna-culture icons and child stars in Taylor Swift’s orbit.
Poor, poor Britany Maack.   It must suck being so "uncool".  and poor Abigail Anderson, not even getting a mention here.  
Protip: In many ways. it would be much better to be the two of them than anyone else on that list.  
They’re the only people that knew Taylor when she was not a big deal at all, and that means a lot.

this list is ridiculous. i mean, the fact that they even made a list. smh
