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.

CBD Lip Balm Is The Calming Presence You Need In Your Life, Trust Me

I tried lip balm, sleep gummies, and an oil dropper from CBDistillery. Here's the final verdict.


CBD has been on making waves within the wellness space for the last few years. Generally related to the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain, it's growing easier to find small CBD companies who are making products specifically designed to fit your needs. As FDA rules for CBD production can be a little hazy, it's true that not all CBD products are created equally. That's why it's important to look into the manufacturing of whatever you're deciding to try, especially if you're new to taking CBD.

As someone who has tried a variety of CBD products — some victories, some failures — I was thrilled when CBDistillery sent me a package of their favorites. They included a Broad Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture, their Nighttime Gummies, and a CBD Lip Balm.

I stopped focusing on the pandemic simply because, for the first time in months, I felt safe.

After a few months of self-quarantining, becoming suspicious of every cough, and blowing through masks like a medical school student, restrictions due to the pandemic are easing up a bit and businesses are warily reopening. While these public spaces may look the same on the outside, the way they function and operate is vastly different than a few months ago.

We've all been there. You see that super cute guy on your dating app of choice, his bio is funny, and then, the gut-wrenching feeling hits when you see their political views don't exactly line up with yours. He loves Trump, you can't stand him, or vice versa.

A lot of people will say you can get over politics, but I know from personal experience, as well as this survey, that politics play a huge role in whether a relationship will work or if we're even willing to swipe right on that profile.
