I just got back from England this morning and I'm still not really sure how to feel. I have to get up and go to school tomorrow and I've never felt more 'over it' in my life. Occasionally I get the 'dang, I just want to be done with school already' but this time it's like... super overwhelming how much I just don't want to be in Denmark and how much I just want to be in England.
That aside, I had a fabulous weekend and I'm afraid to check my bank account lol. As you know, I went there to see Mojo and to hopefully meet Colin Morgan. Well, I didn't meet Colin but I saw the play. I'm very disappointed because it's my own fault that I didn't meet him. He arrived at the theatre probably five-ten minutes after me and my friends went to McDonald's to get something to eat. I was 100 meters away. I'm still so sad about this.
A positive thing, however, is that I met Rupert Grint - and I saw him a total of five times. Got a picture with him, which I'll just show you in a few sentences, and I also got his autograph after the show. Fun fact: three (four, if you count the play, which I do) of those five times I saw him, he was smoking. Literally ten minutes after he walked back inside after having a smoke, he came out to smoke again. Anyway, this is him and me.
He was so chill that I didn't even have to time to be nervous. A few other girls were getting autographs and I wanted one too but I'd forgotten something he could write on so I just went up to him and said 'Uhm, so I forgot something to write on... but can I have a picture with you?' and he was just like, yeah, sure. Told him I was looking forward to the show and.. I can't remember if he said anything back, he probably just smiled or something. I'm super proud of myself, though, because I didn't stutter or shake (much, anyway) or anything like that - which I usually always do. Also, I was looking hella fiiiiiine
and I was feeling so great and yes, it was a good night.
So yeah, I met Rupert Grint???? It still hasn't really occured to me, tbh.
The play was great. Colin was amazing. I love Colin so much. I'm possibly even more in love with him than before. I'd go see it again if I had to opportunity - with better seats, mind you. My seats were shit but it was still worth it.
After the time we went to see the play, we or I went one more time, just to see if I could meet Colin. I was there at around 9pm because I really wanted to be in front when the cast came out to sign autographs. But then we were told that they weren't signing tonight. And I just, I was so sad. You don't understand how sad I was in that moment. After everyone left, I went up to one of the three men standing outside the stage door and said 'I know you said that they aren't signing tonight but I just wanted to hear if there was any way at all that I could get Colin's autograph because he means a lot to me' and the guy said 'no, sorry' and I SAID 'OK HAVE A NICE EVENING' CAN WE APPRECIATE HOW NICE I AM EVEN WHEN I'M SUPER SAD. I feel like it needs highlighting.
It was great, though, the trip, the play (even with the plot point that I HAD NOT seen coming and DID NOT know before watching it, you KNOW what plot point I'm talking about if you've read or seen the play before). I definitely enjoyed my time there and right now I'm just focused on getting through these last eight months so I can move over there and actually be where I want to be.
