As for Nacirema country, one can deduce a culture of isolation and apathy from their greeting customs."

COLUMN: Unapologetically loving "Lover"

"I will admit there are a couple of songs on her latest album that I am not a fan of, but this is insignificant in comparison to my respect for Taylor Swift as an artist. Not every beat or lyric will resonate with each listener, but love and its butterfly effects is a theme to rally behind; a unifier not just for 'Swifties,' but for everyone trying to find a place in this world."
