Dear Taylor,
It’s been 2 months since you followed me, and I haven’t really introduced myself completely yet, and I feel like it’s about time so…here it goes :)
I’m Catthy, as you may or may not know. My name is actually spelled with two t’s and that’s because it is pronounced a bit differently in Vietnamese, but to simplify things, most people just pronounce it as if it were spelled “Cathy”. I currently live in Northern California ✌️ and am 13 years of age.
I’ve been a fan of you ever since I heard Tim McGraw on the radio, and by the time Fearless came out, I knew I was practically obsessed. Everyday when I got home from school I would watch your music videos over and over again. Soon enough I would cut out every magazine photo of you and put it in a 2 inch binder that is now completely filled with print outs and magazine cut outs of you 😂. I was over the top obsessed by the time Speak Now came out.
Then, came Sep. 2nd of my 5th grade year. I had just got home from school and as soon as I get into the car, my mom goes “Go home and get ready” and I’m like “For what?” and she goes “Your dad was able to get some Taylor Swift concert tickets from his work place, so, we’re going to the HP Pavilion right now”. When I heard those words I was literally speechless. No words could describe even close to what I felt. The Speak Now Concert was AMAZING. I couldn’t believe how close I had come to you. Little did I know that 4 years later, I would be closer to you then I ever imagined.
So 2010-2013 passed, and Red was released. I was super happy about the album, but that year, wasn’t a very good year for me…I was constantly pushed around by this one girl who thought I was weird or something…she often came up to me and pinched me out of no where. But hearing some of the lyrics from “The Best Day” gave me drive, and that year, I got all A’s and was put into advanced math. One or two years later, I found out about tumblr. Hearing about the Secret Sessions and the presents gave me so much hope but a small part of me with the low self esteem always told me that nothing like that would ever happen to me. But on 2/10/15 you proved me wrong. When I saw your name pop up in my notifications as a follower I literally couldn’t believe it. I clicked on your url 20 times to make sure it was really you, and I pinched myself to make sure I wasn’t dreaming. After you liked several of my posts it was becoming real. My self esteem has only gone up from there, thanks to you :) Also, because of you, I have met several of my closest friends, my squad ( its-a-swiftie-metafour badbloodmadmadlove taylorkeepdancing tthelightsaresobright thatyoucouldbetrusted illseeyouinmywildestdreams youlllseemeinyourwildestdreams blood-runs-bad idkxtaylorswift) 😊. You inspire me in so many ways. The way you treat your fans like friends, the way you are constantly donating to charity, the way you care for hospital patients, and the time you spend getting to know us fans. I don’t think anyone could live up to the standards that you reached. I love you so much Taylor, and I hope you know that because of you, I fought through the toughest times of my life.

Catthy ❤️

P.S. I took those selfies at Walmart, so no, I do not have a shopping cart in my house 😆

Never in a million years when I was 12 years old and I saw this curly blonde haired 16 year old come onto my tv screen that she would have this much impact on my life. She means the most to me. And has been the only constant in my life ever since I first saw that little music video called “Tim McGraw." 

Taylor is seriously the sweetest person ever. I love how she’s so happy for everybody and not jealous or snobby about anything. She is such an inspiration and I’m so proud to have her as my role model.

I know how we’re all laughing about the how sassy Taylor is, or how she shut the hackers down in this tweet, but I can’t help but feel like when Taylor wrote that she was on the verge of tears/crying. Cause like so many of her fears came true- someone hacked her account, said things in her name, and invaded her privacy.

Taylor, I hope you are okay now and that they haven’t scared you away from your social accounts cause we really like having you here. Love you 😘
