Are you ready yet? The big day is fast approaching. Any minute tickets will go on sale and fangirls and boys everywhere will begin camping out on street corners and handcrafting brand new Jedi robes to wear. It’s an exciting time in the life of a nerd.
I recently read an article that perfectly sums up what if feels like to be a modern Star Wars fan. Take a read.
With only 90 days till the big day, there is much to reflect on, much to geek out over, much to anticipate. A nerdy girl’s heart can only take so much excitement.
Here’s a little something I wrote on what Star Wars means to me:
What Star Wars Means to Me
by Liz Tailor
Star Wars means family.
Star Wars means longevity.
Star Wars means commitment and pure, unadulterated joy.
There is no recollection of a time without Star Wars. It has always been a part of my history and so shall it ever remain.
Star Wars is my deal breaker. My caveat. “You’ve never seen Star Wars??? Please leave this table right now.”
It’s so entwined in my personality I truly believe that people who don’t love it, or at the very least like it, have no hope of ever understanding me.
Star Wars means dreams.
Star Wars means hope.
Star Wars is proof that greatness can be achieved.
That’s a lot to put on a franchise of movies and TV shows and books and toys and stories. But there it is. It means all those things and so much more. I’d scale it back if I could, but I have an obsessive personality and I fell in love with Star Wars a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away and I’ve never looked back.
