So, I decided to switch it up this week and let you know more about in me in a way other than My Monday Musts! While recently browsing through the blog of fellow Her Campus blogger, Brittany of Southern Soul, I came across her answers to the 1989 tag post.
Now, I’ve never seen this tagged post before. So when I saw it yesterday morning, I just knew that I had to do it! It combined my sixteen year old self’s Facebook note obsession, where all the answers had extraaa letttters for no reasonnnn (glad I got passed the phrase or blogging would be a pain in the butt for me to write and for you to read!) and love for Taylor Swift!
I didn’t get tickets for her 1989 concert, though I did see her RED Tour two years ago today and had floor seats to her Speak Now tour. I even got a hug from her during the Speak Now tour, which was probably the greatest moment of my life! So I thought to honor the legendary T Swift’s 1989 tour, I would participate in this tag instead!
(psssst – Before you continue to read, make sure you follow me on Instagram! Brittany and I are in the process of planning something super cool for our Instagram followers and will correlate with Sparkle and Shine’s second blogiversary!)

1. WELCOME TO NEW YORK
If you could live in any city, which would it be and why?
I’ve always, always, always been obsessed with L.A. My tumblr is filled with pictures of there and I often set my background to different palm tree backgrounds of L.A. I find online. I just think that Los Angeles would have the most amazing vibe and I really want to spend sometime out there exploring one day!
2. BLANK SPACE
What is something that everyone thinks is true about you but is actually false?
Hmmm…to be honest, I don’t really know. After a little time thinking, the only thing that I could come up with is that maybe people think I’m not fun because I’m an RA? Which is totally not true
! I know that answer is lame, but I seriously don’t know what to put!
What is one item in your closet that makes you feel unstoppable?
My favorite pair of black wedges from Steve Madden! I wear them to go out dancing, to meetings, and so many other places since they are just classic black wedges. I’ve rocked so many different events and occasions in those wedges, so when I put them on, I feel like a totally bad you-know-what and am ready to conquer anything!
4. OUT OF THE WOODS
What is one thing that you’re afraid of?
I actually have a really big fear of thunderstorms…. and when it happens at night and the power goes out, I might get so scared I could cry.
5. ALL YOU HAD TO DO WAS STAY
Who is someone you wish was still in your life?
I’m a big believer in everything happens for a reason and all that jazz. So, I truly think that people come and go into your life for a reason, no matter how big or small. So, I can honestly say that I am so happy with who I have in my life right now and wouldn’t change it for a thing. Seriously though, no ragrets.
6. SHAKE IT OFF
What is something you have had to shake off?
This kind of goes against number two in a way, but what other people think! I honestly believe that everyone – especially around my age – care, or at least think, about what other people think of them. I think high school and college students are often encompassed by gossip and what others have to say. However,there comes a time in your life when you need to just shake off what the say. Say like queen T-Swizzle says, haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate!
7. I WISH YOU WOULD
What is something you’d like to happen right now?
I wish I had enough time right now to accomplish everything I need to do on my to-do list AND have enough time to binge watch Grey’s Anatomy on Netflix!!
8. BAD BLOOD
Have you ever had someone stab you in the back?
I’m not going to lie – of course, I have. Hasn’t everyone?
9. WILDEST DREAMS
What would you like to be remembered for?
I want to be remembered for working hard and doing so with class and respect. I want people to feel like I was nice and respected them. One of Taylor’s quotes really sums up the legacy I want to leave behind. She says, “No matter what happens in life, be good to people. Being good to people is a wonderful legacy to leave behind.”
10. HOW YOU GET THE GIRL
What is your favourite pick-up line?
” I seem to have lost my phone number. Can I have yours?”
In the 8th grade my friend and I Googled pick up lines and I just always found that one to be funny. Though I’ve never used it, I think I would give my number to a boy who used it on me! Wink, wink!
11. THIS LOVE
What is something you got back that you never thought you would?
I mean, when I was little my dog used to run out of our house and then sit outside our neighbors house a few yards away and wait for us. He always waited for us to come and get him, so that was really nice.
(Can you tell I had no idea what to write?)
12. I KNOW PLACES
Where is one place you always feel safe?
With my mom! My mom is my rock and she always makes me feel safe and happy.
What is an important lesson you have learned in life, and how did you learn it?
I’ve learned in life that you need to play the cards that you are dealt in life. My mom and I always said this since my daddy passed
and it means that you can’t change what happens in your life. Sometimes sucky things happen and you need to keep rolling with the punches!
Hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed answers the questions!!
