Taylor Swift's "folklore" Is Here, And This Is What Fans Are Thinking Of It

Taylor Swift announced yesterday morning that her 8th studio album, "folklore," was going to be released at midnight alongside a music video for her first single, "cardigan," and the internet blew up over it.

It is officially out, and Swifties are raving about it. I'm personally listening to it right now, so I can safely say the hype did not disappoint. Taylor once again did not disappoint.

The album has a different kind of vibe to it, a calmer and more mature sound to it. It isn't really pop-filled, instead it's filled with ballads and softer songs. Cute little songs.

So, what are Swifties thinking? Well lucky for you, I see it all on my stan twitter account. Yup, I'm that kind of Swiftie, and I'm proud. Let's go through it track by track...

Track 1: "the 1"

"The cutest song I've ever heard." Seems like the first track on this album is not disappointing!

Taylor did THAT. Been there, done that. This song is relatable for almost anyone at some point.

Track 2: "cardigan"

If you don't turn it up during this line, you're not truly experiencing the song to the fullest potential.

Some theories behind the music video have already emerged...what do YOU think about this? Coincidence or not?

Track 3: "the last great american dynasty"

Production? Perfect. Lyrics? Flawless. A bop? Confirmed by myself and other Swifties.

For reference: "The Lucky One" is a song from her RED album. Listen to it then listen to this song. Similarities? Swifties seem to think so!

Track 4: "exile ft. Bon Iver"

AGREED. This song put me in my feels. One I personally turned up. You could say it's....gorgeous.

Be warned: Exile really does hit the feels. Be cautious continuing....

Track 5: "my tears ricochet"

Ah yes, the track 5 effect. That is all I need to say.

Do I really need to say much about this one? I think these tweets sum it up. BRB crying.

Track 6: "mirrorball"

Taylor is out here making us really think about our lives.

*Taylor giving us all hugs through a song*

Track 7: "seven"

One word: DREAMY

Of course she would...I mean, why wouldn't she?

Track 8: "august"

Old Taylor? Is that you? I thought you were dead...

YUP. That bridge was something else. In a good way.

Track 9: "this is me trying"

Taylor Swift's music is therapy. She gets us.

Confirmed: Definitely a song to have on repeat.

Track 10: "illicit affairs"

I think it's safe to say you need a box of tissues for this album...

In case you need a full on analysis...Swifties got you.

Track 11: "invisible string"

This song will heal your soul.


Track 12: "mad woman"

This one was not how Swifties imagined it for sure.

Oof, is this one shade? She went off...

Track 13: "epiphany"

A fairy realm? Count me in.

Swifties definitely getting descriptive on this one. It takes you to a new world.

Track 14: "betty"

That key change hit Swifties differently...

2006 Taylor? Is that you? Again, I thought the old Taylor was dead...?

Track 15: "peace"

If you really think about it, this makes sense and is SO SAD.

The lyrics? Heartbreaking. This could've been her track 5, but then again this whole album is filled with track 5s.

Track 16: "hoax"


A perfect ending to the album, confirmed. Enough said.

Overall, Swifties seem very impressed by this album. It definitely is slower and emotional. This is a new approach to an album for Taylor, and I'm here for it.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
