My Secret Session Story.
On October 6th (the day after I got my wisdom teeth out) Taylor Nation Dmed me about a top secret event I was invited to. As soon as I read that I knew I had to go no matter what, I fell on the floor, and I was sobbing. On October 8th I got a call from Taylor Nation, and they told me it would be on October 18th in Rhode Island. Even though that is so far away from Ontario, Canada my parents were still so supportive and said we would go. Btw an hour after the call Taylor came on my livestream and just wow.
I then went out and bought a really cute outfit, and kept it a secret from everyone, and couldn’t sleep for the whole week.
Once the London Secret Session happened, I knew that’s what I would be attending too. And I once again started crying. Every time I thought about what would happen on October 18th I cried.
Finally on October 17th we began our 10 hour drive down, and I just listened to Taylor the whole time (I should’ve done homework, but like…) and it was so fun!
Then the day came…
I woke up early, walked on the beach and explored Rhode Island. Then I got ready for the night!
At around 2:40pm we drove to the meeting place, and got all checked in and got our wristbands and everything. I also met up with my online friend Akhila who was also invited!!!
Then we all got in these cars and drove up to TAYLOR SWIFTS HOUSE. The gates opened all dramatically and I began sobbing!!
HER HOUSE IS BEAUTIFUL!!!!!
We then went into Taylor’s kitchen and ate food, I went out on her balcony and talked to Scott (he gave me so many guitar picks), I met Andrea, Austin, and Tree as well! They were all so kind.
The food was amazing, I ate so many of the rep m&m’s.
We then gathered into Taylor’s living room, they closed the blinds, dimmed the lights and the session began. (((WHAT HAPPENS IN THE SECRET SESSIONS STAYS IN THE SECRET SESSIONS)))
Lemme just say that the album was absolutely amazing, the best one yet. Taylor was in her chair dancing and singing along the whole time and looked around at all of us. She made eye contact with me so many times, and smiled at me, and danced with me, and I cried so much. I was so freaking close to her and she looked so beautiful and she was soooooooo happy.
She looked flawless, and her happiness radiated to all of us.
(((more stuff happened here that I can’t talk about))))
Then we went into another room and waited to meet Taylor.
During this sessions she wasn’t rushed, she took her time with everyone, and it was supposed o end at 9:15 but I was there till 11:30.
I went into the room to meet Taylor, and she hugged me so tight. She knew my name (she said it wrong but she knew how to spell it so it was all good, and then she said it 5 more times the right way lol). She was even more gorgeous that close up, I couldn’t believe what was happening, yet she was so easy to talk to?
We talked about how amazing the new album is, I said that Red was my absolute favourite but Rep took the #1 place and she was like “LOW FIVE, HUGH FIVE!!!”
Then we talked my livestream she watched, and how I couldn’t find my cat. And she said she’s seen me online so much but I used to be more tanned ahahah.
She kept complimenting my outfit, and stroked my choker saying “I love it it’s so delicate” and how my shoes matched my skirt and my choker matched my nails, so she proceeded to touch my nails.
She said she loved how energetic I was and that I was dancing with a childlike joyfulness the whole time!
At one point I was like “you’re gorgeous” and then she tapped my arm and said “YOU’RE GORGEOUS” and later she said “you’re an angel” so I tapped her arm and said “YOU’RE AN ANGEL” it was so cute.
Then she asked what type of pose I wanted to do and I said “I was thinking like two best friends just chilling on the couch” and she was like “OHMYGOSH YESSS DO YOU WANNA HOLD A GRAMMY????”
So we started talking about the Grammy I was holding which was aoty for 1989 !!!!!
Taylor was like “yes that’s the new baby.”
On the way over to the couch I stumbled and the couch moved and she was like “oh don’t worry I do that all the time.”
Then we sat on the couch, she threw her legs across me with her amazing black boots, and she cuddled me as I held the Grammy!!
Then she was like “Halley’s mom!! Do you wanna hold the Grammy?”
So we took another photo standing up with my mom, and I hugged her as my mom held the Grammy.
Then I thanked her for everything and told her I love her.
And she was like “I love you, you little fashionista” and did a little dance.
Then I walked out of that beautiful house, got a bag of merch, and went back to my hotel room.
Then Taylor came on my tumblr and liked soooo many posts and reblogged one and just the day couldn’t get any better.
The amount of joy I felt for the whole night was absolutely amazing. Nothing can ever compare. It’s safe to say that it was the best day/night of my life and I will cherish it forever.
I can’t believe Taylor wanted to meet me, invited me into her home to listen to her new album, and knew about me!?!?!
October 18th 2017 will forever hold a special place in my heart.
