Taylor Swift: “I can never decide if I want love or my own space”



In an interview with VIBE’s January issue, Taylor Swift opened up about her love life.

“Independence is something I’ve always needed, from when I was young," she says, "but I love the idea of romance and falling in love. I’ve never really had a long relationship. So that’s something I think about for the future. It’s an interesting part of my personality: Part of me just wants to be alone .... Sagittarians are really independent, and we like our space. We’re drawn to love but battle for that need for independence."

In another recent interview with Parade, she revealed: People think I want to get married really young - I don't know why. I'm a romantic person, but that doesn't mean I want to miss out on being in my young 20s."

Despite writing about it so prolifically, Swift claims not to know much about love. "I tend to think things are love and then look back and reevaluate."

Taylor Swift invites sick fan to lunch in Nashville



Taylor Swift had lunch with Kayla Kincannon, a sick fan from Madison Heights, Michigan, on Saturday (19 January) in her hometown of Nashville, Tennessee.

Swift's mother Andrea phoned Kayla and arranged for Swift's tour bus to transport the teenager, who was staying elsewhere in Tennessee, to lunch.

The teenager recently celebrated her 17th birthday in the midst of a battle against brain cancer. She had been undergoing chemotherapy and it appeared to be working. However, Kayla recently learned she has another, larger brain tumor which developed during her treatment. 

Her family and friends launched a social media campaign, OperationGetKaylaToMeetTaylorSwift, in December

Taylor Swift donates 2,000 books to hospital's early literacy program



Taylor Swift is giving something back to the hospital where she was born.

Swift, a native of Wyomissing, Berks Co., and Scholastic Inc., have donated 2,000 books to the Reading Hospital's Child Health Center's early literacy program.

She made the donation through the national Reach Out and Read initiative, which promotes early childhood literacy by bringing new books and information about the importance of reading aloud into the pediatric exam room, officials said.

The Reading Hospital's Child Health Center gives each child between the ages of six months to five years a new, developmentally and culturally appropriate book to take home from their visit, officials said. Over time, children can receive up to 10 books for their home library.

Swift has promoted the importance of literacy and education throughout her career.
 
In 2009, Swift donated $250,000 to various schools around the country that she had either attended or had other associations with. The money was used to buy books, fund educational programs and help pay teachers' salaries. In 2011, she donated 6,000 books to Reading Public Library, Pennsylvania and, in 2012, she donated 14,000 books to Nashville Public Library, Tennessee. Most of the books were placed in circulation; the rest were gifted to children from low-income families, preschools and daycare centers. 

Swift co-chaired the National Education Association's Read Across America 2012 campaign, has taken part in live webcasts broadcast in schools, and has recorded a PSA encouraging children to read.

yea some of this is pretty damn accurate...

Sun in Virgo: Not all Virgos are workaholics. However, when Solar Virgos are not involved in some kind of project, there is generally a vague feeling of discontent. Even when their lives are filled up with work, they are restless and somewhat nervous creatures. The fear of under-performing is often strong. Virgos want to do things well. Some are exacting and thorough, and those Virgos who have convinced themselves to do a less-than-perfect job will generally feel incomplete. There's an odd combination of the intellectual and the practical in Virgo that is sometimes mistaken for coolness. In fact, Virgos are often self-effacing and shy. They'll brush off your compliments quickly and, sometimes, critically; but don't let that fool you. They need your respect and appreciation. In fact, the happiest Virgos are the ones who feel appreciated and useful. Add plenty of worthwhile projects to keep them busy, and Virgos can be some of the sweetest, kindest people around.

Sun in II: You take pride in what you own, and have a strong drive for security. You have staying power, and you hate to let others down once you've made a promise. Avoid over-identifying with what you have. Concentrate on proving your worth through your strong value system and your incredible ability to stick with things and with people. Take pride in the solid and secure foundations that you build, as well as the lasting relationships you aim to maintain, while being careful to avoid possessiveness. You seek a safe and secure job, you satisfy your needs, which are substantial. You may be given to spending money impulsively.

You work best when you can manage your own schedule, and you work in spurts. When you are hit with creative inspiration, you are capable of tremendous effort. However, you can be quite temperamental, and it is very hard for you to pour your hearts and souls into something that you don't "feel" for at the moment. You don't like superficiality or pretense, which is an admirable trait. However, your disdain for pretense can be problematic in a world where people are expected to perform whether they are inspired or not!

You are always interesting, and usually funny. You have a tendency to misrepresent yourself with what you say from time to time, but you're a charming, if a little kooky, friend.

Although you often project a brave and tough image, your skin isn't as thick as you'd have others believe. You tend to put up defenses due to your emotionally vulnerable and excitable disposition. Unrest is characteristic, as you are bored by routine and become easily frustrated when life is "too easy". There's a buzz of energy surrounding you, and you tend to meet with many conflicts in your life. With the opposition, the conflict tends to be lived through relationships. The passions are quite raw, especially in youth.

She is generally pleasantly composed, due to an inner sense of harmony and emotional balance. She is optimistic--and realistically so, most of the time--which contributes to her overall "luck". She is able to get a real perspective on emotional matters that not only benefits her outlook, she is able to offer support to others when needed. Broad-mindedness is a wonderful characteristic. Quick to find humor in situations, she is generally warm and fun to be around. Deep down, she believes in the basic goodness of people and of life in general, and this basic and natural attitude helps her to attract positive circumstances and to make good connections. One of her best qualities is tolerance. Usually, she doesn't take life too seriously in the sense that she believes in having a bit of fun. her hunches are more often than not bang-on.

She is frank, honest, optimistic and generous. She likes good cooking, her comforts. Her friendships are sincere. She is a worker and knows how to surround herself with the right people: She is appreciated at work.


edit: lmao and from this longass comment about myself clearly i'm also somewhat narcissistic.
