LA Submission from Jill!
”January 30, 2012 was one of the most amazing days of my life. I woke up at 8am and got there at 10am and knew that One Direction would be filming I-Carly so I first went to the Nickelodeon studios. When I got there, their were 4 other girls there and were telling me that the security guard said that 1D was not there for sure and this was only the Victorious studio. He told us that there was another studio down the street so I decided I would wait there a few more minutes just in case. This papparazi came up to me and asked me if 1D was here and I said I don’t think so. He gave me his card and he told me to call him if I saw anything and he would do the same. He went to the studio down the street and texted me saying lots of girls were there and to go. So I jumped in my car and drove and parked and sat in front of KTLA studios in Hollywood. I was by myself so I didn’t have anyone to talk to but I made friends with 2 girls named Ruby and Charley. As the day went by, more people started coming and I made a group of about 10 girls that were super nice. One of them brought blank posters and we made signs for 1D. Mine said, I love Liam Payne on the front and I Hate Spoons too on the back. It was about around 2 or 3pm and all of a sudden Nigel, the judge from So You Think You Can Dance pulls up in his car to enter the studios! It was awesome and then later Ariana Grande pulled up too! Around 3pm we were all getting really nervous and hoping they would come out soon because we have been there forever! My friends had to leave at 4 and I was getting scared they wouldn’t meet 1D. At 4pm we still hadn’t met 1D and my friends had to leave. It was so sad they were crying and it was just the worst :( They gave us a present they wanted to give to Harry and the boys and so we said we would give it to the manager. 1hr later I saw the manager and asked if they are coming out and he said they are still filming and he doesn’t know yet. We gave him the gift that our friend gave us and he went away. I came up with the idea that we should start singing so maybe they could hear us so we started singing WMYB and One Thing and Up All Night really really loud to the point where the security guard said we were singing too loud and that the sound stage people could hear us! It was crazy! Around 6pm, extra’s from i-carly came out and we asked them if 1D was coming out and they said they didn’t think so because of the publicity. That got me so devastated and I started to cry. I did not wait 12 hours for nothing. At 7:30 I told myself I was going to leave because I couldn’t wait this long and I heard from another extra that the filming would go till 12am and I obviously couldn’t stay. But before I left I decided I would wait 10 more minutes just in case. 5 minutes later this man comes up to us and says okay, the boys are coming to come out. I need you to back up behind the pole and keep calm. No running you need to stay where you are. By this time I was so overjoyed that they were even coming out in the first place! I was in the front since I was there really early and by 7:30 so many people went home and it was just me and my two other friends and 40 girls. All of a sudden I see Niall, Zayn, Liam and Louis come out. Harry wasn’t there because he was filming a bedroom scene with Miranda Cosgrove ;) But its okay because Liam is my favorite. So they came out faced one side of the girls for 30 seconds while they snapped pictures and then turned to my side! I screamed “Liam I love you so much!” and he said to me back, “You too!” and I said HI Zayn! and he waved me to me and I said Omg Niall i love you! and he looked at me and smiled. Then I said Louis you are adorable! and he also waved and smiled. It was the best experience of my life. I also asked Liam if I could be his American girlfriend and he just looked at me and nodded :) I CANT BELIEVE THIS HAPENNED TO ME AND I AM FOREVER GRATEFUL!”
