"I don't think that being a strong person is about ignoring your emotions and fighting your feelings. Putting on a brave face doesn't mean you're a brave person. That's why everybody in my life knows everything that I'm going through. I can't hide anything from them. People need to realise that being open isn't the same as being weak."

re: my poems.

Readers of mine may have noticed that lately I have been writing lots of poems based on songs.

I would just like to say that just because I write poems based on deep emotional love songs it doesn't mean I'm in a deep or emotional or loved up mood or anything, or that I'm not over my ex (I am. Seriously.) It's just that sometimes I hear a song and I think 'That would make such a cool poem,' or 'I totally know where she's coming from,' or 'OMG she's singing about my douchebag ex/the bully of the tenth grade!'

Stuff like that.

1. It's a literary experiment.

2. It's an easy way to fill up the blog.

3. It's a great reason to show so many videos (and fulfils a Media Studies requirement or two).

And time to share my Taylor Swift surprise.

On Sunday I read that "in the crowd" was based on Kanye West.

Lots of compassion and decency there.

Did you mean Innocent? That song was about Kanye West: It's okay, life is a tough crowd/32 and still growing up now/Who you are is not what you've been/You're still an innocent.

Different message to my poem, obviously.
