Hannah Hart is a Lovely Human
My best friend megvord and I decided to drive from Portland to San Francisco to see the #NoFilter Show and attend one of Hannah Hart’s book signings. The whole weekend was a series of wonderful adventures and experiences, and there was no better way to end the trip than to hug Hannah Hart.
The book signing was great. Hannah reading a couple of passages from the book was my favorite part. She put so much into writing this book, so to hear it in her own voice and see the pride on her face was truly awesome. The Q&A portion was a lot of fun, and I found myself so caught up in the moment and listening to Hannah talk, that I completely forgot to take pictures. But I have wonderful memories and really that’s all I need.
Three things happened at the book signing that I’d like to reflect on:
- I was able to tell Hannah how much I loved reading about “adultolescence.” This section of the book really changed how I look at my life right now. I often find myself feeling sad, confused, or completely lost, which makes me feel guilty and ashamed because I feel like I’m supposed to have things figured out by now. Reading Hannah’s book made me feel less alone and a lot more okay with the fact that sometimes I don’t know what I’m doing. And that’s okay. When I mentioned this to Hannah, she said maybe she’d discuss the topic further somday. So I’d like to very sincerely say, mydrunkkitchen, if you happen to read this, I’d love to hear more. I know others would too. Whether you write a blog post or a book, or make a video, I think you have a lot to offer. I hope you’ll consider it.
- Megan and I were able to give Hannah a bottle of our wine!!! I am incredibly proud of my job working as the tasting room manager (and hopefully someday partner) of my family’s Oregon winery. I love what I do, and I think my dad is really great winemaker. Hannah shares so much of herself with her viewers, but we don’t always get a chance to reciprocate and share a part of us with her. I know Hannah likes wine (Megan and I really like Club W, by the way), so I really hoped that I had something to offer that she might enjoy. Giving her a bottle of wine from our winery really, really meant a lot to me. I hope Hannah enjoys it with a friend over a nice meal, or maybe by herself after a day of hardwork, perhaps while listening to some music or reading a good book. Whatever it is, I hope it’s a happy moment.
- My very, very dear friend Cassandra has cancer and is currently undergoing chemotherapy. Because of this, she was unable to travel with us on this road trip, although she would have really liked to go. Cassandra has had a lot of independence taken from her due to being sick. Cancer isn’t just physically taxing, but emotionally as well. Hannah has brought Cassandra laughs when things are tough and hope when things dark. And, of course, a great love of puns! At the signing, we asked Hannah if she would mind making a little video for Cassandra, which she was happy to do. It was something seemingly small, but it meant so much. Cassandra LOVES the video and Megan and I are so happy to see our friend smile. There isn’t much we can do to help, so we try to bring as much happiness as we can. Thank you so much, Hannah. I cannot adequately express my gratitude for your kindness. It means so very much.
This needs more notes.
