Taylorrrrr thank you so much for this night. You are quite literally the kindest human being and I will never forget it, or the nice and funny things you said to me. I still think a rap album could work though like…
SO. tuesday, october 21st, I got 2 missed calls and a voicemail in class from an unknown caller. i legitimately had a textpost planned out like “when you get 2 missed calls and a voicemail from a private number and youre like LOL ITS TAYLOR NATION but it’s just a telemarketer.” i listened to the voicemail….and it was taylor nation. i just ????
so they called me again like 30 min later and asked me some qs and stuff and invited me to an event on monday oct 27th in nyc. they gave me some rules but really told me nothing but the address and when to be there. so i called my mom and it was no problem obviously so saturday i took a bus home from school.
fastforward to today. i get to the meeting place an hour and a half early. i sit in the starbucks next door for like 20 minutes alone and then all the sudden a huge group of girls come in too…..so many tumblr people it was incredible. then we all went outside and hung out. i saw so many tumblr friends i just ))
so we wait online to check in and one of the taylor nation girls, Carly i think her name was, looks at me and goes “wait i know you what letter does your name start with” im like “C” and shes like “YOURE CASSIE” im like !?!??!?!?!??! daybundisfms
so we give them all our personal belongings and we get into this room in iheartradio studios we think shits going down there and then theyre like “KK we’re gonna walk somewhere now!!!!” so i start crying and we walk to some random building idk and u know whole process and then we go to this rooftop….and theres a stage setup and everything and we’re like SHIT CONCERT?!?!!??! and they had the album playing on a loop so we just kept singing and dancing to the song and scott came out and gave us all guitar picks then the band came out Paul and i were like telepathically talking i s2g like i dont know how to explain it but it was a thing
then the queen came out and im sobbing and she sang W2NY, OOTW, STYLE!!!!! I FUCKING ALMOST JUMPED OFF THE ROOF WHEN SHE SANG STYLE LOL, BLANK SPACE, AND SHAKE IT OFF it was so incredible shes so rudbfniemdsfuesd and so then we went into a dif room a few floors down in the building and there was pizza and drinks and then like 45 min later she came out and was like KAAAY LETS MEET EVERYONE YAAAAY
so i didnt really know wut to do so i just went over to where andrea was and listened to everyhting she was saying and i was just crying and she turns to me and just goes “YOU. COME OVER HERE. GIVE ME A HUG.” and gave me such a mama bear hug i sobbed on her lol iduvbfenisd and she was talking about how funny tumblr is and how taylor is on it nonstop always showing her stuff and how much she loves it and how she showed her the “thats my baby and im real proud” and then she slike “AND YOU KNOW WHAT- THAT IS MY BABY AND I AM REAL PROUD!!” it was so cute
so im crying this whole time i had like 10 people come up to me asking me if i was okay and i finally decide to wait online and fastforward a long time later and its finally my turn
she looks at me and goes “YOUUUU. UGH IM SO HAPPY IM FINALLY MEETING YOU IN PERSON!!!!” and gives me the best hug like rocking us back and forth im sobbing on her and i go “im so happy to be meeting you!!!” and shes like “im so happy you made it im so happy youre here!!!!!!” and im like “thank you rudfbcns okay so… im cassie” and she goes “OH I KNOW!” and i just eyrdvfbunie i like cried/laughed and then i just spilled my heart out to her. i just told her everything. i told her how when i was 13 i wanted to kill myself but then i found her music, and i started to write songs and play guitar and listen to her and how she gave me something to be happy about and how all i used to do was cry all night and then one day i woke up and realized i was happy all because of her. and at one point she stopped me and was like “you know, i would never even think that, because you are so beautiful and elequant and you dont show that at all. i would never think you’d feel that way or go through that by seeing you on the internet on tumblr and instagram and stuff. so, like, im really weird, and i have nicknames for fans on the internet, and my nickname for you is PRETTY GIRL and everytime i see your pictures im like ‘oh, its pretty girl again!!!’ so i would never even think that.” so i just thanked her 9 million times and just kept telling her like all about how shes influenced me and saved my life and how everytime i get back into a bad place she gives me a reason to keep going and stay alive and all that stuff i went on and on for a while and i started saying like how shes the most wonderful person and the most important person in my life and how i wouldnt be standing there talking to her if it werent for everything shes done for me and she goes “stop it, you are the most amazing person ever. you are so amazing and beautiful. i’m so happy you are here and alive talking to me, i really am because you are so, so amazing.” and i just kept going on telling her how important she is to me and i ended it with something like “i know i can get through it all cause youre here for me, and i hope you know im always here for you” and she just goes “aww i love you so much” and grabs me into a hug and we’re just squeezing each other so hard and shes like “we need to get the most adorable picture together what do u want to do.” and im like “can we get a picture of us like hugging at the piano over there?” and shes like “YES AMAZING IDEA” so she takes my hand and we walk across the room holding hands to the piano and shes like “LETS DO IT FROM THIS ANGLE ITLL BE SO CUTE” so we took the picture and got up and hugged again and shes like “i love you im so happy you were here youre so amazing” and im like “i love you so, so, so, much taylor thank you” and shes like “dont worry, i’ll see you on the internet!!!!!” and smiled and squeezed my hand
and that was that to the best of my ability of retelling. it was…..truly, my dream come true. the retelling of our convo is kinda all over the place cuz it was really just me rambling so much and taylor being like “stop ur so amazing and so beautiful i love you” to everything i said and i just djsyfvebsn thats the best i was able to retell it. im literally in a dream right now. the fact that Taylor chose me herself to meet her tonight and spend the day with her for her album release is just too……so goddamn amazing and special to me. i never thought this would happen to me in a million years. everything ive ever wanted for the past 6 years just happened to me. and i will never forget it for as long as i live,
taylor, i love you more than you will ever, ever know. thank you for all the wonderful, amazing things you said to me tonight, and for being the absolute BEST person in my entire life. i dont know how i’d survive without you, and im so happy you finally know everything ive been waiting to tell you for the past 6 years. never, ever forget how amazing and wonderful you are. i love you more than anyone.
i will never forget this for the rest of my life. i love you taylorswift
emilyann17: Well, 8 years in the making and it finally happened. Taylor Swift invited me to celebrate her album release on a rooftop in New York City. When I finally met her she gave me song writing advice, told me I was beautiful over and over again and wanted to recreate our picture of us holding hands together, except so we could see both of our faces. She didn’t want to let go of me! She told me she knew I traveled a long way and she was so glad I could make it cause she’s wanted to meet me for so long. All I can say is this is officially the best day of my entire life. I’m speechless. I love you,@taylorswift so much. Thank you for everything and thank you for your best album yet. You made my wildest dreams come true. I’ll stand by you forever. -Emily #taylorswift #1989secretsessions
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
Jan 14, 2018 8:42:01 GMT -5
davepastern: that I dislike (should've said no, better than revenge, holy ground, and style).
Jan 14, 2018 8:42:32 GMT -5
neoswiftie: no need to be sorry, wasn't my favorite song on reputation either, but I do love the video, especially the London sequence
Jan 14, 2018 8:45:13 GMT -5
neoswiftie: lol gonna need to brighten that gif, 20 frames in photoshop, will do that tomorrow

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?
Jan 16, 2018 7:22:53 GMT -5
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
Jan 16, 2018 7:26:25 GMT -5
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.
Jan 16, 2018 7:41:24 GMT -5
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
Jan 16, 2018 7:43:25 GMT -5
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
Jan 16, 2018 8:30:58 GMT -5
neoswiftie: Lol now they have a problem with Joseph Kahn, you know... the one friend who defended Taylor through thick and thin, you know... one of her REAL friends
Jan 16, 2018 11:09:20 GMT -5
neoswiftie: Because he said that pitbulls are dangerous, and I know he is exaggerating but what sane parent would leave his/her baby/todler alone with a pitbull? Just imagine a child who doesn't know how to behave around an animal, poking in it's eye... or worse!
Jan 16, 2018 11:14:50 GMT -5
neoswiftie: Some breeds have a bite and jaw that can kill, Joseph is not saying every pitbull would do that, just saying you never know what might happen, and if something happens what then?
Jan 16, 2018 11:17:40 GMT -5
neoswiftie: Is anyone on the TSL app? If so, did you get free packs and picks today or yesterday?
