So woah, its been a while.
48 hours ago, I was queueing to meet Grace Helbig, my idol. If you don’t know who she is then please educate yourself here.
I got in the queue at quarter past four, and eventually met her at five past 8. When I got near the front of the queue I was shaking so hard I thought I was going to either pass out or vomit. I had never been more nervous in my life.
When I got to the front of the queue and walked over to her, she was so excited and happy that people had waited so long to meet her. She hugged me and asked me what my name was, how I was and where I was from, and then I gave her the bag of British candy that I had bought her , to which she jumped up and down and screamed ‘aaaaaaaah thankyou!’ at about a thousand decibels.
We then took selfies (which she took, and yes I trusted her with my phone) and she hugged me again and thanked me for waiting and said it was lovely meeting me and when I said thankyou she said ‘of course! Enjoy your night!’. When I walked out of Waterstones I was shaking so much and almost in tears. I managed to hold myself together until I got home, and then burst into tears because I was so happy.
I still can’t believe it happened, and I’m not sure if I ever will.
That night was the best night of my life, and I am honestly so thankful for the opportunity.
One last thing: I caught her illness, and am now coughing like a dog and have a cold. Cheers, Grace!
