a Taylor Swift Concert Every Day

a Taylor Swift Concert Every Day

My friend Kat and I are birthday neighbours, and promised each other that instead of presents, we would go see a Taylor Swift concert together when the time was right. Kat was in exams when the RED tour came round, so we’ve had to wait a while, but oh was it worth it.

a Taylor Swift Concert Every Day

Every year for Lumos Your Life I run through the Perfect Day exercise – detailing my ideal every day from morning to night. For the most part my Perfect Day is achievable if I commit to it – I work hard and play mildly, after all. In June, though, as the sun set on Hyde Park and the lights rose on Taylor Swift to the opening beat of “Welcome to New York”, I modified my wishes.

I wouldn’t mind going to a Taylor Swift concert every night. I really wouldn’t.

I sing through the whole 1989 album most mornings anyway, so it was a heightened experience of that, in a crowd of hyper-excitable fans, with Taylor herself at the forefront in her great, sometimes illuminated outfits.

Taylor’s friends say hanging out with her is like an adventure.

What does that mean? I want hanging out with me to be like an adventure! Perhaps I should stock my guest room with Victorian nightgowns and my friends’ favourite snacks. If I had a guest room, that is.

Taylor has the unparalleled ability to articulate human feelings. Except, perhaps, for Jane Austen – I wonder what Jane Austen’s Tumblr would be like. Taylor’s concert laces together the familiar tunes we Swifities can sing in our sleep with surprises, like her infamous guests/besties, and tear-jerking (just me?) pep talks about believing in yourself.

After the concert, Kat and I did look up tickets to Dublin to follow Taylor to her next destination in two days’ time (it was unsurprisingly sold out. But we did look.). We will definitely be in attendance the next time she rocks out in the UK.

In the meantime, I aim to create a Taylor Swift concert in my heart every day, and not just by singing the music.

I want to create content as full, authentic, and fun as Taylor’s music. I want to present it to you every day in a sparkling aspirational bundle that will inspire you to be your own heroine as much as Taylor inspires me to be mine. I want to cherish my best friends like Taylor does hers, to make everyone feel special and important and not alone.

  • I’ve been following your blog via Bloglovin for a while now (a year or two, I think). It was only a few months ago when I realized you had commented in a blog I used to run (I don’t blog there anymore, so I didn’t check the comments), telling me that you’ve liked my post featured it in your blog. The fangirl moment was BIG.
    I’m such a shy blog follower, almost never comment. However, I *had* to tell you I admire you so much. I’m so glad I found your blog, because you’re the kind of person I want to be surrounded with — inspiring, unique, creative, genius. I love how you find inspiration for your life everywhere (I tend to do that too). I love Taylor Swift and listening to 1989 for the past few months has made my life much better, and I would love to go to one of her concerts (it’s hard to do, however — I live in Spain).
    Your happy thesis challenge has inspired me to do my own ‘happy senior year challenge’, seeking ways to make my last year of college happy and fun instead of stressful (like most people insist to make it).
    So please, PLEASE keep doing your thing, girl! Keep blogging like you do, being the way you are. You inspire others more than you think. THANK YOU.
    (Sorry to write such a long comment… I just needed to express it.)

    • oh my gosh this made my day! thank you thank you so much! do you have a new blog now?
      i hope you have the happiest senior year ever (that’s actually when i started my blog, with similar hopes in mind!) and that you get to see taylor one day <3

      • Kind of! It’s a studyblr (socpoliscischolar.tumblr) & I plan on writing about this happy senior year challenge. Just before writing that comment I found out you liked studyblrs too, and followed yours! 🙂

        • YES i love studyblrs! they got me through my dissertation 😀
