Taylor Swift’s Plans for the Future Will 100% Surprise You
Taylor Swift has NO idea what she’s doing… and that’s absolutely, totally awesome. Before you’re all, “whaaa?!,” let us explain. After years of us bopping along to her tunes and of her thrilling us with her perfect pop performances, Taylor Swift has no idea what she’s going to do next. And that’s exactly what she wants and what all of us need at times.
When asked by Vogue what she plans to do next, Taylor admits, “I have no idea.” But that’s not something that stresses her at all. In fact, it’s totally the opposite. She is apparently relieved, excited, even blissful. “This is the first time in 10 years that I haven’t known. I just decided that after the past year, with all of the unbelievable things that happened… I decided I was going to live my life a little bit without the pressure on myself to create something.”
So what will she be doing with her time off? Learnin’. She wants to take some time to learn how to make a good drink, how to save someone if they’re drowning and how to change a tire. And we don’t have any doubt that she’ll nail them all. “I got it in my head that I couldn’t do a split, and I was really upset about it. And so I stretched every single day for a year until I could do a split. Somehow I feel better knowing that I can.”
But if you’re worried that this means you won’t be hearing any new musical material from Tay any time soon, put your fears aside, luv. “I’m always going to be writing songs,” Swift admits. “The thing is, with me, I could very well come up with three things in the next two weeks and then jump back into the studio, and all of a sudden the next record is started. That’s an option, too.”
We have to say, all options sound awesome!

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
