Red

Idag regnade det hela dagen. Alla här blir jätteexalterade när det regnar för det gör inte det så ofta och varje gång säger jag till dem att flytta till Sverige. Där kan de få uppleva regn höst, sommar, vinter och vår. Rena rama himmelriket. Jag berättade också att det var rätt så modernt med gummistövlar och då sa min kompis " så är det därför ni bara har skinny jeans? så att ni kan ha på er era stövlar!" ja det är väl en av orsakerna skulle jag gissa...? haha:)

Vad som gjorde denna regniga måndag lite bättre (förutom min varma kopp koffeinfria örtte som jag njöt av när jag kom hem) var att efter skolan så åkte vi till Target och jag köpte Taylor Swifts nya album Red. Har inte hunnit lyssna på alla låtar ännu men av det lilla jag har hört så är den suuuuper bra! Jag älskar Taylor Swift och detta var klart dagen höjdpunkt!

En anledning till varför jag alltid väljer att köpa hennes album i CD format är att det till varje album finns en prolog som hon skrivit. Dessutom finns det också gömda meddelanden i låttexterna som ger dem ett extra djup om man är ett riktigt Taylor Swift fan (se Swifty).

 

There's an old poem by Neruda that I've always been captivated by, and one of the lines in it has stuck with me ever since the first time I read it. It says ''love is so short, forgetting is so long.'' It's a line I've related to in my saddest moments, when I needed to know someone else had felt that exact same way. And when we're trying to move on, the moments we always go back to aren't the mundane ones. They are the moments you saw sparks that weren't really there, felt stars aligning without having any proof, saw your future before it happened, and then saw it slip away without any warning. These are moments of newfound hope, extreme joy, intense passion, wishful thinking, and in some cases, the unthinkable letdown. And in my mind, every one of these memories looks the same to me. I see all of these moments in bright, burning, red.

My experiences in love have taught me difficult lessons, especially my experiences with crazy love. The red relationships. The ones that went from zero to a hundred miles per hour and then hit a wall and exploded. And it was awful. And ridiculous. And desperate. And thrilling. And when the dust settled, it was something I'd never take back. Because there is something to be said for being young and needing someone so badly, you jump in head first without looking. And there's something to be learned from waiting all day for a train that's never coming. And there's something to be proud of about moving on and realizing that real love shines golden like starlight, and doesn't fade or spontaneously combust. Maybe I'll write a whole album about that kind of love if I ever find it. But this album is about the other kinds of love that I've recently fallen in and out of. Love that was treacherous, sad, beautiful, and tragic. But most of all, this record is about love that was red.

- Taylor Swift
