If you’ve known me for more than two weeks, you’ve probably learned I’m a devoted Taylor Swift fan  (insert Taylor Swift t-shirt from the Gillette Stadium show). I’ve been a diary writer for years, and I love that Taylor brings her diary to life. I love that she shares such incredibly personal details, and I’m pretty sure she’s an old soul like me.

She has a boldness I admire, and I think I could use more of. She isn’t scared to roast the guys that have done her wrong. She believes we should all be treated right, and if she isn’t Swift speaks up.

Here’s the John Mayer song from her new album. I also recommend “Sparks Fly.”

Favorite lyrics from “Dear John”

Don’t you think I was too young to be messed with?
The girl in the dress,
cried the whole way home.

But I took your matches before fire could catch me,
so don’t look now:
I’m shining like fireworks over your sad, empty town
