"I have said things to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world."
I'm all about that truth. It really will get better. All things will be restored. The pain will end. It really will.
In honor of finally meeting Demi tonight after four and a half years of waiting, I’ve decided to go back down memory lane and revisit our moments leading up to this.

My first Demi Lovato concert and maybe the best show I’ve seen of hers. I’ll never forget how she dang “Don’t Forget” as the encore (no pun intended), slayed it vocally and fortified such a connection with the audience to make for a truly powerful ending experience. Left in a happy daze.

Paid $10 plus ticketmaster (live nation) fees to see Demi do a half-ass set (not her fault, though) from the nosebleeds because it was technically a “Camp Rock 2” concert a.k.a. a Jonas Brothers’ concert, and Demi didn’t get her due chance to shine. It rained most of the time. But it was still really fun - I went with my friend and her niece, and we had a blast.

A friend had an extra ticket for Arther Ashe Kids’ Day for the US Open and I didn’t even have to pay her back! Demi (and the Jonas Brothers) were the “headliners” and played really short sets, but I was slightly closer than I had been the week before, and it a really fun time still, especially for free. This was when I started to latently become attracted to Demi, so I was pretty much drooling from afar the entire time.

Demi’s comeback show! My best friend and I got there 12 hours early, and it paid off because we were right in front of the stage. Demi was amazing and gorgeous, but most notably, we had our first moment together during Skyscraper when I reached out towards her and she immediately reached back for two seconds. If you watch the performance on youtube, when she repeats the chorus after the bridge as she sings “like I’m made of glass” you can see it happening.
This is also in the midst of me realizing that I felt a…certain way about Demi Lovato, so you can imagine how I was after over an hour of standing right underneath her.

That is a terrible picture of Demi bringing Nick Jonas on stage when I saw her in concert for the fifth time last year, and I was ecstatic because I really loved Nick at the time, and I love their friendship. Performance/show-wise, it’s my 2nd favorite of hers - she always has a way of making you feel like you’re just hanging out with her at her concerts. She really engages with us, and plus she puts so much energy into her performances - she always captures the stage and this was no different. I had better seats than that picture from my old crappy blackberry implies, and I really enjoyed myself as always.

Not pictured, but my BFF and I got X-Factor tickets, so we did the whole “get there early” thing and once again ended up in front of the stage with the judges right behind us. I literally zoned out and gazed at Demi’s beautiful face for the entire time because I’m honestly not really invested in the X-Factor. When she came on the stage with her contestants, serendipitously she ended up right in front of me, so I got her to wave at me. But she was mostly distracted with her contestants being in jeopardy so I didn’t push it beyond that.
Sometime this past July, I saw her at X-Factor again, but I was really far away and it was pretty much insignificant except for the fact that Demi was being perfect and adorable, as usual.

Met Demi Lovato at a book signing. I hit on her. She responded. It was glorious. Full story here.
Man. When I think about it, this is really cool. Because Demi is hands down, no doubt about it my favorite celebrity and has been for quite some time. So to have had so many experiences with her is pretty sweet. God’s too good to me. And I’m so grateful. Looking forward to more to come!
I am literally suffering through Glee and watching them ruin my favorite band (I mean, okay, no one can ruin The Beatles, but dang, Glee is trying pretty damn hard) just so I can see Demi Lovato be a lesbian.
This is my life now.
Cannot get over how damn GOOD Demi Lovato looks in her snapback selfie. She becomes more and more of my dream girl with each passing moment.
But goodness, she is so gorgeous. Her eyes are the prettiest shaped ones I’ve ever seen. Those lips. The fact that she’s wearing a snapback. This is one of the best pictures of her I’ve ever seen, and I’m obsessed.
