10 Best Star Wars Characters of All Time

Yoda? Boba Fett? BB-8?

I love Star Wars. I might not be a super fan, but enjoy watching the movies and spinoffs. Since the last movie of the "Skywalker Saga" is going to hit theaters in a matter of hours (or has already been released).

I thought taking a trip down memory lane would help with all of the excitement that is surrounding "The Rise of Skywalker." The characters listed below are just a select few of some of my favorites. Honorable mentions include: Boba Fett, C3PO, Jabba the Hut, Kylo Ren, and Luke Skywalker.

Chewbacca

Giphy

How can one not love Chewbacca? He's loyal, hilarious, and has proven to be a great asset to the Resistance. Besides, he's been here since Episode 4, you can't have Star Wars without Chewie.

Obi-Wan Kenobi

Giphy

Ah, Obi-Wan. He's seen the rise and fall of Anakin and even introduced Luke to the force. He has a great personality and really cares about the future jedi. We kind of owe the whole series to him.

BB-8

Giphy

BB-8 is adorable! BB-8 is tasked with something similar to R2-D2. BB-8 is totally for the resistance and supports his friends such as Rey, Poe, and Finn. BB-8 may be a little scared at times, but will always be supportive.

R2-D2

Giphy

One of the original droids. R2-D2 is sarcastic and sassy, but how can you not love R2-D2? He has helped in more than one instance and is extremely loyal to Leia, Han, and Luke. A great droid all around.

Princess Leia

Giphy

The BEST heroine!!! Leia (she also happens to be my favorite character)!!!!! She helped spark the rebellion, impressively uses the force, and her hair is absolutely amazing! Leia will always hold a special place in my heart for being strong, determined, and caring.

Lando Calrissian

Giphy

Haha Lando! What's not to love about him. I really loved getting to know his back story and how Han went about meeting him in "Solo." He has got to be one of the most clever, yet caring characters in the series. Lando is a great asset to Han's team.

Rey

Giphy

I love Rey so much! It's so refreshing to see her as a main character in the newer movies. I can't wait to see what happens with her in "Rise of Skywalker". She's a great fighter and seems to have great morals. (Especially when dealing with Kylo Ren). Rey to the rescue!!

Anakin Skywalker

Giphy

Okay, Anakin (or Darth Vader) is a terrible character. He had the chance to be among the elite when it comes to the Jedi. He was saved, had great mentors, and even had a great wife. (Natalie Portman was amazing). Instead, he ruined everything which brings me to the scene pictured above. Loved Anakin in this scene specifically because he's pretty great in and I find it oddly amusing.

Yoda

Giphy

YODA! The mysterious green fellow who helps Luke find the true meaning of The Force. Yoda is wise and also knows a little bit of sarcasm. Luke would not be as powerful as he is without Yoda.

Han Solo

Giphy

Lastly, Han Solo. The cute smuggler with a heart. Once he joins the resistance, there seems to be no going back. Solo knows his way around the galaxy too. He is witty, quick-thinking, and may or may not have a crush on Leia. Oh, and his best friend is Chewie. His prized-possession: THE Millennium Falcon.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?

For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
