10 Best Star Wars Characters of All Time

Yoda? Boba Fett? BB-8?

star wars

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.



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


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 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.



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


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


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.



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


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! 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


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.

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Every person, every couple celebrates Valentines in different ways, but there are a few things to keep in mind.

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Ah, Valentines Day, a day of excitement for some and heart break for many. There are three kinds of people on Valentine's Day: the ones who make it a big deal, a little deal, and those who are single, but Valentine's Day can be fun for anyone if you have the right spirit in mind.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?


African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month. All year, we should celebrate the amazing poetry, music, inventions, and accomplishments that has surfaced over the last 100 years. Let's take a look...
