So I actually freaking met Jared Padalecki in my home area of Pittsburgh. It was a dream come true. Yes, I am the same height as him, and yes my name is also Jared (and our birthdays are three days apart AND sacrifice is apparently both our favorite episodes). I only got a little bit of time with him but he was super nice with me and everyone else and it was a truly awesome experience. I got autographs from other cast members (they signed on the art work I have previously posted on my blog) and I was shocked at how nice they all were. It was just a great weekend. Love that show, love him, and love them all.
Edit: Also, I just felt that there was something I should add. Another reason that this was so special to me was that Always Keep Fighting was something that Jared created but also became very important to me. It’s mind blowing to me that someone I look up to deals with the same stuff I do. I obviously couldn’t say anything about that during the photo op not was I going to and distract him from the many other fans who waited with me (besides I was so star struck I only got a few words out he made 75% of our ten second conversation about our heights haha). It meant a lot to meet the guy that this campaign and tries to help other people.
