My Personal Ranking of the Galaxy Far Far Away

I've been asked for this list of mine many times. So here it is.

As I sat in the theater awaiting to be transported into the tremendously beautiful Star Wars universe, I found myself overcome with emotion. It's the same emotion I have when I hear the blaring trumpets of the theme and see the opening crawl spread across the screen. Star Wars is and always has been the one of the most influential things in my life. When discussing Star Wars with other fans, though, the first question that must be answered on all fronts is "what is your favorite Star Wars". Over the years, I have had to form many different lists of the Star Wars movies to accommodate to new releases as well change in opinion. However I have finally reached a decision; here is my official listing of the Star Wars in order from favorite to least favorite.

1. Episode IV: A New Hope:

People will constantly fight me on this due to it not being known as the best Star Wars movie. However, this movie IS Star Wars. It's the original, the base, and nearly flawless introduction to the Star Wars universe.

2. Episode V: Empire Strikes Back

Although I do recognize that this one is the most well made film of the franchise, it will never be my favorite. Nonetheless, this movie is absolutely incredible. From introducing to new exotic locations like Dagobah and Cloud City to containing of the biggest cinematic reveal, Empire Strikes Back is for me a movie that created standards that all other film creators should take inspiration from.

3. Episode VII: The Force Awakens:

I don't care if you don't like the Sequel movies, you are wrong. The Force Awakens is a true callback to original trilogy and every scene in it leaves you on the edge of your seat wanting more. Also, it perfectly introduces a new generation of heroes and villains that everyone can enjoy.

4. Episode VIII: The Last Jedi:

Yes, I love this movie; no, I don't like Rose. Disregarding that, Daisy Ridley and Adam Driver's performances in this film are the greatest performances in any Star Wars movie up to date. They steal the show with their magnificently intense connection scenes and their marvelous characterization. Also, have you seen the Throne Room scene? One of the greatest choreographed scenes in Star Wars movies.

5. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story:

A true war film, Rogue One is a captivating movie from start to finish. It's magnificent cast and incredible story create a piece of art on screen that allows for a perfect lead into the original trilogy. This film also contains what is possibly one of the most beautiful yet horrifying scenes as Darth Vader chops his way through the rebel soldiers in attempt to take back the stolen plans. This film is a journey all throughout and it takes you on a ride that every Star Wars film should.

6. Episode III: Revenge of the Sith:

The most meme filled movie of them all has a very dear place in my heart. The reason why, is it contains some of the coolest lightsaber battles ever put on a screen. Every time a lightsaber is ignited on screen, the movie gets a little bit better. Also, Hayden Christensen's acting is a great deal better than his performance on the second film.

7. Episode VI: Return of the Jedi:

I LOVE EWOKS! But honestly, Return of the Jedi isn't that great of a film. Don't get me wrong, I love it with all my heart and I'd watch it any day but come on. It is a fun film but not a very good one.

8. Episode I: The Phantom Menace:

The only reason this isn't last is because of Darth Maul and the lightsaber duel at the end. That's it.

9. Episode II: Attack of the Clones:

I don't know what to say. Geonosis is cool I guess.

13 Father's Day Shirts Under $30 To Gift The Dad Wearing The Same Two Every Day In Quarantine

You've been begging him to change it up, and now he won't have a choice.

Let's be honest: most of our dads are wearing the same shirts today that they probably wore while changing our diapers and holding our hands as we learned to walk. Sure, we love them for it. But whether you're quarantined with him wearing the same two shirts on rotation every week, or every time you FaceTime him, you know what he'll be wearing before he answers the phone, he needs to add some new items to his wardrobe rotation.

And you know dads — they'll feel guilted into using practically anything you were to give them. But these shirts are sure-fire ways to get him to switch up his wardrobe, and he'll be more than excited to wear each and every one of them. Plus, most of them are under twenty dollars, so no harm in dropping more than a couple in to your cart and letting Dad have his pick of his favorites.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Hollis Tuttle To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

My Boyfriend Has Changed Since Quarantine Began, And I Don't Know What To Do

"All he says is 'I love you,' which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him."

Each week Swoonie B will give her advice on anonymous topics submitted by readers. Want to Ask Swoonie B something related to dating and relationships? Fill out this form here — it's anonymous.

Dear Swoonie B,

My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year, which has been the best year of my life (as far as i know). Well we go to different schools and are both very involved in sports and school activities which makes it hard to see each other. During this quarantine it is especially hard. Since we haven't seen each other in over a week things are kind of tense. He won't really talk to me much and I always check in on him to make sure he is doing well and to just see how he is, ya know being a girlfriend. Well apparently that is driving him crazy and I don't understand how. I'm not being controling or clingy, i'm just checking in on him. While this is happening, I also have noticed how he just doesn't really care anymore. I'll leave him paragraphs of sweet love letters to wake up to and I encourage him throughout his day but I just don't get it in return. I love him with all of me and I obviously care about him a lot. Also, I've compared how he talked to me before all of this has happened. He was so sweet and caring, texting me a lot and telling me he loves me and just making sure everything is OK but he doesn't do that anymore. All he says is "I love you," which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him. He is a little stressed at home with trying to find another job to pay for his car, constantly having to do things for his mom, being responsible for his siblings, and managing school. I know thats a lot but im doing a lot too right now and going through a lot of the same stuff he is but It seems to me he just does not care and i don't know what to do. Please help me or give me some advice on what to say, what not to say, what to do, what not to do. Anything at this point will help. Thank you!

If I had a dollar for every time I heard "these are unprecedented times," I'd be rich. But that's because it's true!

Tower 28

On paper, Amy Liu appears to be one of the most intimidating women in the beauty business. Not only was she the person to build Smashbox Cosmetics into what it is today, she went on to lead luxury, high-end brands like Kate Somerville and Josie Maran — just to name a few.

But sitting down to meet Liu for the first time in an underground New York bar over a year ago felt like meeting a friend I'd known since childhood. As she walked into the bar in a chic red dress, it was impossible not to feel her immediate warm presence. When she talks about her history as an entrepreneur (and truly, at heart, she always was one), you don't get the sense that she's selling you anything, though with her impeccable taste, I'd use anything that had her glowing review attached to it.

Sixth grade was the year that you were allowed to participate in a school sport. This was what my friends and I had all been waiting for since we started middle school. I had already made the cheer team with my friends, but I had to wait to start that in the winter since we cheered for basketball. I really wanted to have some sort of activity in the fall, but I did not know what to do. Somehow, I decided to run cross country. Not really sure how I decided on a sport where it was quite literally just running. A few of my friends were doing it as well, so I knew it was going to be fun.

Working Out Every Day During Quarantine Helps Me Feel A Sense Of Control

Physical activity helps my mental health in a world that feels uncertain.

Before the pandemic, I exercised a handful of times a week at best. In quarantine, I've been exercising every single day. I don't want this article to be another spiel about how exercise "changed my life," and all the other cliches that health gurus use to convince others to work out more. Rather, I want to reveal that exercise is a tool that works for me because it boosts my mental health when I feel like the world is spiraling out of control.

To say that 2020 has been a bit of a roller coaster is an extreme understatement. Who knew that this decade was going to start off like THIS!? Not me, not you, and not that sweet old lady who lives down the street. One thing is certain though — while the world may be a mess right now, you can still fuel your body with food that keeps you happy and healthy. Thankfully, as we are all spending more time inside, you can get healthy snacks delivered straight to your front door! Amazon has never been more convenient (and tasty).
