Taylor Swift shared a new throwback photo, and as usual, she looks surprised. But the picture was taken was long before the validity of her shocked faces was repeatedly called into question.

Swift shared the photo in honor of her birthday, and wrote in the caption, "Today I begin my 26th year of freaking out over stuff." Doesn't it seem like just yesterday that she didn't know about you, but she was feeling 22? They grow up fast, yet the 1989 tour never seems to end.
