The 1989 Tag!

Unless you've been living under a rock, you'll know Taylor Swift has a new album out. Some genius decided to make a tag out of the song titles, and after I saw Jennie had posted it, I fancied a go too! I've only had one listen of the album, but it's definitely a top pop album. Plus, in her new video she stands on a horse, so yeah. On with the tag! 

1. Welcome to New York. If you could live in any city, which would it be and why? 
Ooh, snap answer with Jennie on this one! I'd love to live in Edinburgh, as we nearly did! Somehow, we ended up in Somerset, but the Scottish half of me would love to return north of the border.

2. Blank Space. What is something that everyone thinks is true about you but is actually false? 
Erm, I have no idea? I think a lot of people think I'm quite good with spelling and stuff because of my copyediting and proofreading skills (the joys of publishing!) but I'm actually really bad. So bad, that I used to get bullied because of it. Yeah, I went to a weird school... 

3. Style. What is one item in your closet that makes you feel unstoppable? 
The playsuit I bought for my birthday. It was such an extravagant purchase, but I feel like Kate Bush in it, and that can never be a bad thing. 

4. Out of the Woods. What is one thing that you're afraid of?
Not getting a job when I leave university. 

5. All You Had To Do Was Stay. Who is someone you wish was still in your life?
It's not really answering the question, but all of my family. I hate living 300 or so miles away from them, and really hate how much they miss of Dylan. 

6. Shake It Off. What is something you have had to shake off?
I'm trying really had to be less miserable around Joe. Stuff sucks at the moment as we have hardly seen each other due to my late lectures, so I don't want to dwell on things around him. Sure, discussing problems is fine, but after that I just want to have a cup of tea together and feel good

7. I Wish You Would. What is something you'd like to happen right now?
I would like my assignments to be magically completed and of a super high standard. Too much to ask?

8. Bad Blood. Have you ever had someone stab you in the back? 
Yeah, but it was all high school drama. I'm not proud of it, but I'm sure I did plenty of backstabbing too. I'd like to think I'm a much nicer person now, and that I've surrounded myself with pleasant, friendly people. 

9. Wildest Dreams. What would you like to be remembered for? 
My celebration cakes. I'm sure my legacy will be some milestone in my career, or how well-rounded Dylan becomes, but I do bake a pretty awesome cake when I give myself enough time. 

10. How You Get The Girl. What is your favourite pick-up line?
I don't have one. Joe and I bonded over a love of Prince, The Smiths and The Tallest Man on Earth. 

11. This Love. What is something you got back that you never thought you would?
A chance at a decent career. I went to university right after finishing my A Levels and bloody hated it. I was completely miserable, studying something that I had fallen out of interest of, and living with the nastiest housemate imaginable. Although on paper getting pregnant at eighteen wasn't the most desirable life choice, it gave me the courage to try a course in Publishing at a university in the other half of the country, relocating with the little family I'd somehow created. 

12. I Know Places. Where is one place you always feel safe? 
As corny as it sounds, with Joe. I like knowing that he always has my back. 

13. Clean. What is an important lesson you have learned in life, and how did you learn it?
You can put your trust in someone to do the right thing, but some times they just will not do it. You can't blame yourself for their failure, and you shouldn't punish yourself for being too nice, caring or hopeful. 

So there's the T Swift tag, I now challenge you all to do it! :)
