11 Moments From 'City Of Lover' That Reminded Us Taylor Swift Is The CEO Of Melting Our Hearts
ABC

Taylor Swift, yet again, gave the Swifties something they didn't expect, but of course love(r)d.

Sunday night, Taylor Swift's "City of Lover" special aired on ABC which was full of behind the scenes secrets, first live performances of her album "Lover," and the scoop behind a lot of her new songs. If you haven't watched the hour-long special yet, you can see it on Disney+ and Hulu!

These moments from the show really just made us remember why we love Taylor Swift oh-so-much.

1. Taylor's gratitude.

Taylor starts every concert showing such sincere, incredible gratitude to her fans and everyone supporting her. It's not just a "thank you guys so much for being here, I love you." She puts so much heart and love behind everything she says, and it shows.

Can you tell I'm a Swiftie yet?

2. The songs she sang acoustically.

Taylor decided to sing some of the songs that she hasn't sung before from "Lover" acoustically because that was the way that she wrote them. There is NOTHING better than when one of your favorite artists takes artistic control of their music and performances to give their fans something SUPER special.

3. "The Archer" performance

"The Archer" was already such a beautiful song, but it's always an added bonus to hear the extra pieces that make it so special to Taylor to make it even more beautiful.

4. "Death by a Thousand Cuts" acoustic. 

This song was originally a bop off of this album, but Taylor singing it live and acoustic gave it a new sound and meaning.

5. "Cornelia Street" acoustic.

There was so much passion behind this performance and you can tell how much it means to Taylor, which, we all love.

6. Taylor's interactions with the audience.

Taylor really interacts with the audience in a way that makes it feel so intimate and personal. She knows how to connect with her fans more than any celebrity fan base I've ever seen.

7.  Her vocals.

Taylor's acoustic performances during this concert strip down the bells and whistles showing how talented and beautiful her voice is essentially on its own. Also, she's the one playing the instruments with the stripped-down performances so, the musicality is all in her hands and voice, absolutely incredible.

8. "Daylight" acoustic performance.

"Daylight" does not get enough love on "Lover" because a lot of her other ones took the spotlight, but this acoustic performance brought it back to the surface to get the appreciation it deserves.

9. The sass and joy  during "You Need to Calm Down."

Taylor has been very clear on her stance on same-sex marriages preaching that love is love and equality is essential and this song and performance reiterates that.

10. Taylor declaring her favorite song off of "Lover."

Yes, it is "Lover."

11. The matching guitar, guitar pick, mic, and mic stand. 

So much "Lover" pink, such a vibe.

12. The snippets of Taylor behind the scenes preparing for the concert and enjoying Paris with her band. 

You can tell that she and her band are close which makes her performances that much more special.

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn

College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.
