May the Fourth Be With You!

Me with Yoda at Star Wars in Concert

If it isn’t obvious by my nickame “Darth Cena” I am huge Star Wars fan. I’ve been a fan since I was in 2nd grade when I discovered the series on my own. I was at my school’s library just looking at the books when I stumbled across these…

Star Wars Children's Books

I don’t know what it was exactly, whether I had possibly seen those characters somewhere before or I was just drawn to them. I started checking the books out on a regular basis. My parents took notice and decided to rent the films. From then on I was hooked. In 1997 I got to see Star Wars on the big screen for the very first time in celebration of the 20th anniversary special edition films. I got to see Episode II in IMAX, Episode III at midnight, and Star Wars in concert last year. Then in 2008 the best thing that could ever happen to a Star Wars fan happened to me: I met George Lucas.

In honor of today being Star Wars Day, I’m going to share some of my favorite Star Wars things I’ve discovered over the years.

I know there’s a ton more out there (stuff I can’t think of right now off the top of my head), especially cool merchandise on Feel free to share some of your favorite Star Wars things you’ve found!
