Think of all those amazing songs writen straight from herself.

Wear as an average person wouldn't know how to start a song and would take them 10 days to write one. All these other artists have people who write for them and they are not even close to being good with t-swifts songs!... She is truly an amazing genius!... If you ask me.

Um...DUH! Ark-M, thank you for finally adding Emma (my heroine) to a good list! She graduated from Brown University. Not all celebrities can say they've done that. She also went to Oxford!

Better than I could even write!
