Yoooo! So VloggerFair was yesterday, and it was loads of fun!
Tyler Oakley was there! Woot! I watched his Q&A and he was absolutely perfect. There was a meetup afterwards, and I waited for like 2 hours (#hardcorefangirllyfe
) to get in, but had to leave before I could get in.
But Tyler was nice enough to stay for an extra hour to meet people in line, which was totally sweet like what even
I met Matthew Schueller and his boyfriend Michael Lindsay and oH MY GOD I HAVE NEVER HAD BETTER HUGS IN MY LIFE. I actually saw them like 3424745792397 until we were eventually in line for Tyler and bored out of our minds and I literally said "I think Matthew left," looked up, and saw him like three feet away! My kickass friend Ashley was like "bro we're doing it this time, you can't wimp out" and before I knew it I was like "Hey" and Matthew (incredibly sweet, of course) just said "Hi! What's your name?" and now we're definitely besties. Definitely.
I also saw Chris Hubbard and Rachel Whitehurst like 5897943079 times and Chris looked! at! me! at least 10 times. He probably liked my dalek shirt, it brings all the vloggerboys to the yard. B) Both of them are even hotter in real life, believe it or not.
But yeah! It was super rad! During his Q&A, Tyler looked right at me and smiled and it was like, lifechanging. I didn't ask a question because I wanted to save that superduper experience for others because there were DEFINITELY people in there who liked him more than I do? Yeah. It was crazy.
Fun fact about the YouTube community!! Everyone is nice. Like, literally everyone. When Charles Trippy came out and people went running to see what all the screaming was about, I said "People probably think it's Tyler..." and literally this girl looked stopped running, looked at me and screamed "IT'S TYLER???" But she was nice, we had a conversation. Also these other random chicks told us when Tyler was on because we had no idea what was going on at all? They were sweet.
Actually, when Tyler came in, my friend Marisa looked over and said "Hey, it's Tyler Oakley" like it was nothing (which I totally admire her for because I freaked) and he was like 20 feet away from us and NO ONE else had noticed him! So naturally, my mini-crew kind of squealed a little bit and he just looks over and pUTS A FINGER ON HIS LIPS WITH THIS SLY LITTLE LOOK LIKE TYLER??????????????? And then everyone noticed and came running BUT that'sbesidethepoint
He tweeted a picture of himself at the Space Needle, so we went on a little hunt but didn't find him.
But we made friends out there, too! YouTube! Community! Aaaah!
--Little Things That I'm Likely to Forget and Want to Remember--
~Someone threw a bag of Doritos at Tyler while he was onstage??
~Palmerator was playing skeeball for like fifteen minutes and we were waiting for the machine??? But he was super good so we watched and like when he finished I clapped for him and he laughed ksdlhaskjglaskglka
~While I was hugging Matthew (he was so warm I was a bit concerned) he like laughed and his throat was on my shoulder???? So it felt sO WEIRD IT WAS SO WEIRD
~I almost made a great joke to SkyDoesMinecraft ("So do gaming youtubers travel in PAX? (they were all standing in a group)) but then I didn't because I'm a wiMP
~Chris and Rachel had VooDoo doughnuts and they kept tweeting about them
~The fucking basketball hoop fell onto the Tyler Oakley line (no one got hurt)
~We asked Chris Pirillo where Tyler Oakley was selling posters and he said "Tyler's people are doing that so I don't know" like Tyler's PEOPLE??? I guess he's a company. Weird realization time wow
~We came out of the bathroom at one point (this was pre-Matthew hug) and Matthew was rIGHT THERE and I panicked but idkidkidkidk
~We were standing outside and this random crew of three (p cute) dudes (one of them was a youtuber and I have literally no idea who he was) and they were like "heyyyyyy" ?????
~At one point we were wandering and we looked up to the VIP like balcony area (which had seating) and Matthew was literally just sitting in Michael's lap and they were cuddling and I just kind of sajjdsakgadsgdsagadsgdsagasoigoiwu
~DeeFizzy almost bumped into me while making a vine and said "Oh, sorry, vining is hard" but I didn't know him by face (only by name u feel) so I didn't eVEN REACT
Now I'm just kind of remembering all of the little things that happened, which is pretty magical. It was a great day aaaaaaaaaaaaah
Can't wait for next year! I'm buying VIP tickets because there was nowhere to sit for us regular people.
