Taylor Swift Is Counting Down To Something And We're 'Ready For It'

Taylor Swift is releasing SOMETHING and I don't know what to do next.

34

It's just been announced! Taylor Swift is back with a new theme and a new something and we all get to find out what exactly it is on April 26.

Late Friday night, Swift (finally) posted on her Instagram story with a count down date ending on April 26. She also changed all of her social media icons and backgrounds to the same thing and her bios to "4.26."

She even changed her website to the continuing countdown and same themed background.

What is this new thing you might ask?! Well, we can hope that it's music of some sort. Her new theme seems to revolve around light colors, soft tones, butterflies, and dare I say, it's daydreamy? She seems to have had a knack towards butterflies, rainbows, and pastel colors as of late with her choice of Instagram filters, colors, and award show accessories.

If you look through her Instagram (and you better look quick before she decides to sporadically delete everything again), her theme/photos go from a dark, badass vibe that "reputation" gave us, to light, dreamy, pastel color sense.

Fans we expecting something to occur on April 13, had we known it would be THIS, I'm not sure we would've been prepared at all.

So, how long has it been since Swift has been in the spotlight?! Aside from her few award show appearances, we haven't seen much of her. She walked off the stage from her "reputation" stadium tour at the end of November and has been quite discreet about things since then.

Can she really write an entire album in the span of four months? Who's to say? I mean it's Taylor Swift, what can't she do? I will say, the fact that we're hearing any sort of announcement from her after just three short months has got to be a record.

After her 1989 album came out in 2014, she didn't release any sort of music until 2016 (that being "I Don't Wanna Live Forever" also by Zayn, featured on the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack). After that, she finally released "Look What You Made Me Do" on Aug. 24, 2017, after a long awaited time. Following that, reputation came out Nov. 10, 2017, over three years after 1989.

And now we're getting something just four months after her last tour ended?! Call us spoiled! After the announcement of her "reputation stadium tour" Netflix original film, I wasn't expecting much for quite a while. That in and of itself was already a treat to get just one month after the tour ended.

So what exactly do we have to work with now? Well, not much. Aside from her new announcement, all we have is to guess what comes from here. Music? Tour? A single name? An album name? ANYTHING? We sincerely hope.

If you know anything about Swift, it's that she loves secrets just as much as the next person. And she's good at them. Her favorite thing seems to be lurking, or should I say, "Taylurking"? If you didn't know, Swift likes to lurk on her fans on social media sites, particularly in favor of Tumblr. When she does Secret Sessions (it's in the name really, but secret sessions are in when her biggest of fans are personally invited to all around to listen to her album early with her and get a wonderful photo op), she usually finds people from Tumblr or Twitter who she leads on having "lurked" on for a while. Taylor Swift knows everything by now, don't you know?

Until April 26, all we have left to do, is patiently, patiently wait. In the meantime, actually, I don't know what to do in the meantime. Panic? Cry? Mentally prepare? How about all of the above?

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

People Are Eating Salads For Breakfast, And It's About Time

As Americans we know we all need to eat more fruits and veggies, why not do it at breakfast?

I first started seeing a dietitian in late 2017. At the time, I was the heaviest I've ever been at about 210 lbs. At the first appointment, my dietitian asked me to record what I ate in a food diary so she could better understand my habits and give me better direction in changing my lifestyle. I did exactly that and returned a week later, diary in hand. After a cursory glance at the pages, she first remarked at how few fruits and vegetables I ate. Deep down I had already known that, but what I didn't know then was that I was far from being alone in that respect. According to a Times article, about 90 percent of Americans don't consume enough fruits and vegetables to meet current dietary guidelines. It's hardly rocket science as to why that is — many of our diets consist mainly of carbs and non-planted based protein. This isn't to say that carbs and protein are the devils; they're both parts of a balanced diet. However, vegetables and fruit are also part of a balanced diet — a part that often gets neglected. So, when I see people on Instagram eating salad for breakfast, I think to myself "It's about time!"

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
