I MET MAYDAY PARADE!!!!!!
I MET MY FAVORITE BAND!!!!!!!
DAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!! Words cannot describe the excitement I felt when I first shook their hands, or the happiness I felt when I told them what they meant to me, or the pride I felt for when they genuinely thanked me for my kind words.
It's always scary meeting your idols because you don't know if they're the best people in the world, or the worst. I'm happy to say (and I KNEW it) that they are the former—they're so awesome! Why're nice, and genuine, and chill, and friendly, and DAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH.
They signed my golden copy of my favorite album as well as my sleeves!! I even got the merch manager to sign my shirt because I see him all the time! (He agreed with me that asking that was weird, but he went with it anyway. Lmao He's awesome too!! And it made the sleeves even—three signatures on each side! Hahaha)
I kinda hope they don't see me in full fangirl mode. Hahaha But at the same time, I do hope they see that I truly meant it when I said that I wouldn't be the musician I am today without them.
Their second album—my favorite album—came out ten years ago. Justin was the one who showed me "Jersey," and I fell in love instantly. Here's to another ten years of awesome music, amazing experiences, and fond memories to last a lifetime!
