Looking back at my early childhood, before the preteen insecurities and whispers in school hallways caused doubts and insecurities in my young and impressionable mind, back when I was just a tangly haired kid running around in mismatched clothes on a farm all day – way back then – the things I remember feeling about myself were the things my mother told me over and over again. I was special. I was smart. There was no one like me. I was different from everyone else in the world. I wasn’t weird, I just had a wild imagination. I wasn’t strange, I was creative. She was proud of me. She wouldn’t want to be anywhere else more than she wanted to be with me. When I grew up, the first things to make me question those ideas were bullies and mean girls in class. Every day I went home devastated and my mom would remind me that they were wrong. Sometimes I’d roll my eyes and scoff at her opinion, but there was always a quiet confidence deep inside me that wouldn’t let people and their mean-spirited words defeat me. Since then, it’s gone from school-yard bullies to tabloids. It’s never going to be painless when people say things about you that aren’t true, or try to make you feel worthless. But I was lucky enough to have a mother who armed me with the only weapons I’ll ever need to fight the cruelty of this world: words. — Taylor Swift, about her mother Andrea Swift
davepastern: The Ready for it... video was good (but I loved Ghost in the Shell so that was gonna always be a given lol), not really a fan of End Game (the song or video). Sorry, but it's my least favourite song on Reputation, and joins the ranks of a few other songs

davepastern: that I dislike (should've said no, better than revenge, holy ground, and style).

neoswiftie: Hi StarlightDreamer, I'm not a member there... but I'm pretty sure some of our members are there too, I guess they prefer to be on both fora. Why do you ask?

neoswiftie: I don't mind that you promote your forum and everyone can join here and stay a member there too, I really don't mind, there is also taycon.proboards.com/ they were first

swiftvote: I've been here from the start... no drama like on TC or the new 'The Swift Life' app, I don't need another forum
Jan 16, 2018 7:37:49 GMT -5
swiftvote: I guess most swifties are now on tumblr and The Swift Life, but they are also chatting in 'private chatrooms', problem with those chatrooms is that 1 person has to approve who is allowed in, and who is allowed to stay, heard that there was drama there too.

neoswiftie: When there are a lot of members, doesn't matter where, you are gonna get drama... that's why certain topics are better avoided

neoswiftie: Here we have a safe place for everyone that loves Taylor for who she is, what she does without having to whine about the 3 things other 'huge' fora forbid... Po Ra Re, there are enough other places for those topics
Jan 16, 2018 7:46:23 GMT -5
swiftvote: Agreed, those topics are what causes the most misery on TSL
Jan 16, 2018 7:48:31 GMT -5
twothirtyam: I like TSL but you can't really connect to anyone, short conversations are possible on someone's post... but once you go somewhere else it's not possible to find it back
