Real life is a funny thing, you know. I think most of us fear reaching the end of our life and looking back regretting the moments we didn’t speak up. When we didn’t say ‘I love you’. When we should have said ‘I’m sorry’. So there’s a time for silence, and there’s a time for waiting your turn. But if you know how you feel, and you so clearly know what you need to say, you’ll know it. I don’t think you should wait. I think you should speak now.”

No matter what happens in life, be good to people. Being good to people is a wonderful legacy to leave behind.

These songs tell stories about fairytale romances, and how sometimes they don’t work out the way you dream about when you’re a little girl. Because when we’re young, we dream about Romeo and Prince Charming— and we hope he’ll ride up on a white horse and rescue us. But sometimes the white horse shows up too late, after the prince has already let you down and left your dreams out in the rain. I never read a fairy tale with that ending. I guess that’s the hard part about living in reality.

I still have mixed feelings about what growing up is - this thing that happens to everyone, so I’ve heard.


My parents actually almost named me Shelby. But then they realised that my name would have been Shelby Swift and that kids might make fun of me. Shelby Swift‒  like ‘She’ll-be Swift’. And then like, what if I wasn’t a fast runner? They would’ve been like “ well she’s not.”
