I MET HANNAH HART
She was super kind, and very chill/down to earth.
We got there a little after 4:00, and there was a circle of about 20-ish people already there. We were flagged down by a friend, but the group was also on the look out for other hartosexuals (especially since the meadow was not easy to find).
Hannah Hart got there at 4:20 (yes lol 4:20 on 4/20, she didn’t actually plan that which actually makes it funnier, moving on).
It was amazing to me that she wasn’t absolutely mobbed by people. She got to just say hi, and some of us (me more inwardly) got a little flustered and giddy! She walked to the other side of our little circle and took her time just introducing herself (she just walk up, shook hands and said ‘Hi, I’m Hannah.’ it was awesome) and learning people’s names and just chatting. Some people had brought food to share, and there were a lot of new friendships made.
When Hannah got to us, my Dad and I were sitting with some people we knew, and some we had just met. We introduced ourselves, and chatted. She liked my TARDIS backpack (made by the absolutely lovely tumblr user http://allrightcallmefred.tumblr.com/ (sorry I suck at links)).
The coolest part was that my dad and I were wearing our matching MDK shirts. Back in 2011 (I think?) my mom got us all MDK shirts for Christmas. We took a photo of all four of us and used it for our Christmas cards that year. We also sent some photos to Hannah Hart, she even emailed back about how awesome that was. I didn’t expect her to remember, but we mentioned it and she did! She was like “Oh my gosh! whoa you guys did! Hey!” My dad even mentioned how they had gone to see her for the My Drunk Iron Chef Kitchen and she seemed just super, I don’t know if excited is the right word, but she was just kind of happy to meet some people who had been fans for so long.
SHe finished making the rounds, and we met some cool people and chilled out in the park. It was so cool to see so many different people all in the same place, and all being respectful and kind to each other and to Hannah.
She did an awesome Q&A, which I did video some of, but it’s not great quality, so I’m not sure I’ll post it. I’ll also wait and see what else might come up (as in if anyone else has better videos).
I got a hug (ah!) and she signed my shirt (ah!).
Basically, it was awesome just get to say “Hello!”
