I would like to know how you reacted when you met Julia Murney.
OH MY GOODNESS SO IT’S ACTUALLY THE MOST EMBARRASSING THING
OR, AT LEAST, TO ME, IT WAS. I STILL GET FLUSTERED ABOUT IT.
So they didn’t put a barricade between the performers and us at stagedoor to the concert hall at The Kennedy Center, which becomes relevant later.
Anyway, at first, each of the performers came out one by one (first Jennifer Laura Thomspon, followed by Jeremy Jordan, followed by Julia Murney and so on) and they would make their way down the line of people waiting at the stage door (I was at the end of the line with a group of girls I’d met at the concert) and sign programs and what not. You know, your usual stagedoor type stuff.
When I saw Julia Murney come out of the stagedoor I got excited and it kind of felt surreal, I couldn’t believe it was actually happening.
While I was standing there waiting for her to make her way down the line to where I was, Norm Lewis came out of the stagedoor and decided, since Julia Murney was on the other side, he would start on my side, and when that happened (I KID YOU NOT) every single person flocked to him and left Julia by herself (and I heard her say “Everyone’s here for Norm” to herself and I FELT SO BAD FOR HER LIKE THAT WAS SO RUDE AND ALSO I WAS AT THAT CONCERT SPECIFICALLY FOR HER) and she just stood there and no one else was really paying attention to her.
I still hadn’t gotten the chance to meet her but I was nervous about approaching her myself so, after a little bit of coaxing from the girls I was with, I went over and in that moment I was so starstruck that I lost every ounce of my ability to be coherent and blurted out “Hi!” pretty loudly (like embarrassingly loudly it was a bit obnoxious) and after she said “hi” back I asked her to sign my program and then was like “Can I get a picture with you?” to which she replied “Sure” so I took the picture myself and then thanked her and walked away and I JUST WISH I HAD ACTUALLY BEEN ABLE TO SAY MORE THAN LIKE 10 WORDS TO HER.
I then proceeded to post the picture I took with her on every social media site I use with the caption “EVERYONE SAY HELLO TO JULIA MURNEY THIS IS JULIA MURNEY AND I ADORE HER” and I was just elated and when I went to bed that night I was too excited to sleep like I JUST MET JULIA MURNEY
I JUST MET JULIA MURNEY
I also haven’t changed my tumblr icon in 1 year and 4 months (which is huge because I used to change it on like a weekly basis) and have no intention on doing so any time soon. (I’ll change it if I get the chance to see her perform again and get a new picture with her)
