[cont] So there was that, and all of the “squad” stuff made me feel like Taylor was exclusive/not relatable anymore. I don’t know how much of that I can attribute to Taylor vs the media’s spin on the “squad” and what exactly that was. What I liked the most about Taylor was that she always felt like one of us, but I felt like she was distancing herself from the “girl next door” image during 1989 and trying to come across as one of the cool girls. At one point I felt like if I were to ever see Taylor on the street, I wouldn’t say anything to her because I felt like I’d be bothering her. Idk, whatever, but anyway, I became disillusioned with it all and basically left the fandom. My point of this is that it has been SO incredibly nice rejoining. I rejoined during the summer around the time that she put her music back on Spotify. I could feel that something was about to happen. I had missed this fandom so much, and I’d missed Taylor. And I’m feeling so much better now. That magical element to Taylor Swift is back. I’m not sure exactly why, or what’s changed, but it sort of feels like the old days again, even though everything feels so new and exciting. Taylor seems super happy, and she looks really healthy, and everyone’s being nice to each other. It seems like Taylor is focusing on herself and the music, and less on trying to please everybody. I’m just so happy to be back.
