Hey guys! So it’s true I met Ryan again! :) Basically in respect for Ryan I’m not going to say where exactly I met him but it was in a place he visits frequently. My friends http://kardashianloverr.tumblr.com/ , http://jonasjunkie.tumblr.com/ and Liz decided to go to the city yesterday, in hopes that we would meet Ryan. When we arrived at this restaurant we were going to use it as a starting point, but after about 2 minutes we were planning on leaving. But then (thank god), I looked out the window and saw him standing there with his friend. I’m almost positive he heard me screech “THAT’S HIM, OH MY GOD THAT’S HIM” because let’s just say it’s hard to control yourself when Ryan Gosling is in the same room as you. So of course my body starts shaking uncontrollably (which is always fun) and I start to walk over to him as he begins ordering for himself (and Eva I presume). I quiver, ” Hi Ryan, could I have a picture?” and this beautiful man turns around and says in the most sincere way, “I’m so sorry I can’t right now but it’s really nice to meet you” and he reaches out his hand and I shake it. I then say, “Thanks, I met you in July, I’m from Burlington” (we both have family that live there). And like the first time we met he says “That’s awesome!”. Meanwhile I’m on the verge of having a freaking seizure and I sort of drift back over to where my friends are. Let me just say that Ryan is definitely one of the most down-to-earth celebrities to ever exist and I’m so happy that he respects his fans. So I’m back with my friends and he’s ordering and I can see him continuously glance over in my direction (partly because I was probably loudly inhaling and exhaling, and partly because I didn’t want him to get away without me doing something memorable..yolo right? ha). So luckily before I had arrived to this restaurant I had printed that picture above of me crying with him, and I had put my name, number, e-mail and tumblr on the back of it. *Go big, or go home* is all I could think. So I finally grew the balls to go back over to him and say “I’m sorry this is sooo creepy, but I have this picture for you”. And i hand him the picture with my information on it and a sharpie. He was going to sign it for me, but I insisted that he keep it (or throw it out if he wanted) and I pulled out another picture of him that I had in my purse ( #stalkerpride). He slowly begins to sign it as we make conversation. “So what are you guys doing all the way from Burlington?” He says. My friends make note that they’re American but I’m from Canada. “You’ve got family in Burlington right?” I say even though I already knew that hehe. “Yeah my mom” he says, and then he continues “My mom loved you the last time we met” he says to me, and my hands are going in directions of all sorts because I’m shaking so bad. “You should really start using your tumblr…er..I mean twitter again….A lot of people actually care if you’re eating a sandwich” I stutter to him because I’ve always wanted to say that to him (I mean who doesn’t want him to start tweeting again?). He laughs and my heart literally sinks into my stomach. So he asks what my name is and I give him my full name and he asks me to spell it so I do. Then he asks my friend Thomas what tumblr is and Thomas explains to him and here and there Thomas and Morgan let him know how much this means to me. He writes my name in a speech bubble that says “Hi Kenzie _____”. I feel so bad because I probably freaked him out to no extent but I honestly love this man with every ounce of me. He’s really good with fans like me who have major issues, I looked like a human vibrator probably. I just kept mumbling “Holyyy shittttt”. Anyways, he asks my friends their names and shakes their hands. Then him and I do this mini-handshake where we slide our palms together and then fist bump and he says my full name, “Kenzie _____” and my mouth is so unbelievably dry by this point. I think i stammered a few things here and there but I literally cannot remember every detail because he literally lights up a room when you see him. As I turn away to leave him alone I say “Bye Ryan, I love you” and he said “Bye, love you too”. HOLY FUCK GUYSSSSS hahahahaha then I’m paralyzed for a good hour or so. Before he steps foot out of the restaurant my friend Thomas sees him read my information and then neatly fold it and slide it into his pocket. Once again, thank you sooo much Ryan (if you’re reading this), you’re the most incredible person in the entire world and I cannot thank you enough for taking time out of your day to notice my existence.
