Last week, Taylor Swift re-released her album, “Fearless (Taylor’s Version) ”
This album holds a lot of meaning to me. Fearless was the first album my dad ever bought me and the soundtrack of my childhood. I have vivid memories of jumping up and down on my bed to “Love Story” and falling asleep to “The Best Day.” I refer to Fearless as my comfort album and it is amazing how much power it has in my life a decade later.
Fearless (Taylor’s Version) was the soundtrack of this past weekend, which I spent in Lake Lure. As we navigated the winding roads overlooking the water, songs of my childhood blasted through the speakers. For the first time this whole semester, I was able to take a step back and release my stress. I felt a euphoric joy I had not felt in over a year.
I associate Fearless with many youthful memories and this weekend was the cherry on top. Thank you Taylor, for bringing so much joy into my life.
