    33 Things I Feel Listening To "Love Story (Taylor's Version)"

    I'm at an old-timey ball and I'm making lots of eye contact with my dance partner, who's kind of hard to read but I'm into it.

    As I'm very sure you already know, Taylor Swift just released "Love Story (Taylor's Version)," the re-recorded version of her 2008 hit, "Love Story." I won't go into the reasons why, 'cause that's not why I'm here, but I will say that artists should own their own work!

    Here are 33 emotions I feel while listening to the re-recorded version of this classic.

    1. Happy, because it's impossible not to be happy when listening to this song. I am pumped, baby! Sorry for saying "baby."

    2. Nostalgic. It feels like it's 2008 all over again and High School Musical 3: Senior Year just came out.
