Star Wars is SO GREAT!!

I feel a little silly writing this because I am not, by any stretch of the imagination, a die-hard Star Wars fan, but I must admit that I am getting so excited for Episode 3. I was just walking down the hall towards the kitchen in my house and I could hear the TV. Then I heard the wonderful sound of Darth Vader breathing. I never thought something so simple and ordinary as breathing could bring me such joy! I totally just got goosebumps. Darth Vader is definitely one of my favorite bad guys (along with Julian Sark) because he is just so cool! He has the greatest costume ever. Also, I have a friend in math with which I have often discussed Star Wars lately. I feel like a band-wagon fan, only really liking it when a new one comes out, but I am actually counting down the days until it comes out.

I have recently discovered something about myself: I am a nerd. As much as it pains me to admit it, it is so true. I had this revelation in gym class this morning. I was listened to some people nearby talk about Star Wars Episode 3 and one boy said jokingly, "I'm going to go and dress up!" A was a little taken aback by the tone of his voice. He said it like it would be so funny in a make-fun-of-people-who-actually-do-that kind of way. I think that would totally be a fun way of spending a Friday night! This makes me feel a little nerdy, but I think we are all a bit nerdy. Pretty much everyone has wired things that they like or do but the "nerds" at school, for example, are just the ones that are more public about their strange ways. Hats off to them for showing the world their nerdiness! (BTW Star Wars comes out in 5 days!)
