You Should Get On The Star Wars Hype Train Already

With less than three months until Episode VII, we should all start talking about why this movie is gonna be just great.

You Should Get On The Star Wars Hype Train Already

So close, yet so far.

As the new "Star Wars" film is now less than three months away from its beautiful release, one can't help but get just a little hype. It's coming. And Holy Mother of Jar Jar am I excited. So if everyone could be please hop onto the "Star Wars" hype train, we can get this thing stared.

Ok, so "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" is being released in American theaters on December 18th, 2015, seemingly light years away from now. We're all obviously excited, and it seems like Disney might actually knock this one out of the theoretical ballpark that is Hollywood Resurrection.

So all aboard the hype train.

"The Force Awakens," which will be the seventh episode of the "Star Wars" films, has made consistent headlines since the release of it's first teaser trailer, a 90 second thrill ride that made me and my 22-year-old brother squeal with delight.

This movie has such a massive bubble of hype around it because It's exciting for so many people. After the first trailer for Episode VII was released, my brother and I made sure to show our 10-year-old sister the "Star Wars" movies so that she understood. What makes this movie's release so exciting is that it applies to every Star Wars fan alive. It's a real sequel. A true follow-up to the original trilogy. Sure, Disney's making it for the insane amount of money it'll rake in, but this movie could actually have a more profound effect on its audience than any other movie coming out this holiday season.

If you've loved Star Wars since the first movie graced the screen in 1977, you should be excited.

If you're first Star Wars experience was with the cloddish Episode I in 1999, you should be excited.

And if you're like me, and you grew up in the early 2000s riding your everlasting love of all six "Star Wars" films around the house like a speeding X-Wing, you should also be excited.

That's why this hype train is so big and crowded. Everyone should be excited for this movie. Not because it's gonna have big explosions and drama and all that Hollywood mumbo jumbo. But because it's Star Wars. I grew up pretending to be a jedi, taking every chance I had to tug my sweatshirt hood over my head to try and look like Luke Skywalker. It's a childhood love that blends with our adult goals to be a hero...or to say witty lines while firing a blue blaster at stormtroopers (that's mine).

The hype train is this hyped because this movie is going to be awesome. I see no way how J.J. Abrams can mess this up. And for sure if he does, he'll be known as Jar Jar Abrams for the rest of his career.

But even so, the stellar cast, the rocking new stormtrooper look, and everything in between tell me that we're in good hands.

Less than three months separate us from the magical release of this movie. Get excited. If you're a "Star Wars" fanatic, you should be pumped out the wazoo. We're finally getting a sequel to the Original Trilogy that will not only include much of the original cast, but also finally answer the question of what the hell happened after the Empire fell.

It's gonna be awesome. Get your tickets ready, because the hype train is about to get rolling.

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.

I used to regard loneliness as this misshapen emptiness — one that existed for the sole purpose of being temporarily filled by other human beings, ones who we convince ourselves to make some curious, broken, part of us a bit more normal. A bit more whole. As simple as A + B, to evade loneliness, be incessantly social.

Everyone says pumpkin spice is the superior fall flavor, and I mean, I get it. It is a VERY seasonal flavoring (like pumpkin spice in March? I'll pass). However, personally, I like apple more. It's cozy and it reminds me of being a kid again.
