The above text are not just the reasons why I love T. Swift. I have given my ears on her since the time that I first heard Teardrops on My Guitar. I can still remember where I am that time, on our old house, holding my old phone while listening to the radio. Then the song came out. I can still remember where I first saw her face on a magazine. It was years back then.

The time when I first had twitter is so vivid. We've got no internet connection back then so I had to rent on some nearby computer shop. I can still remember where I was seated. I made one years ago just to get latest news regarding her.

I always wanted to play the guitar. But the feeling became more intense because of her. She had inspired me to have one and play my favorite songs on it. I also take her as an inspiration when it comes to writing.

For me, she's the sweetest musician out there. I have seen it the way I view her lyrics, the way she blogs, the ways she answers her interviews, the way I see her on the TV.

I love her as always because I always feel like we're sharing the same diary. I pinky swear to you who's reading this: I will always be a Swifty.
