Life Update: Blog Goals, Learning Aurebesh, and Preparing for the Future

Hi.

I thought I’d write a small update on my life since I’ve been feeling really inspired lately. Last month I wrote about my goals for 2018, which are to get a new job before the year ends and to focus more on this blog. Unfortunately, for personal reasons, I am unable to leave my job just yet, but hopefully I can begin my hunt before the summer starts.

As for my blog, things are starting to look up. I’ve become more open and talkative on social media. I’m really shy so it takes a lot of powering through my anxiety to make posts or even reply to others. I don’t know, I guess I’m too aware of the fact that people are going to judge what I write since they don’t know me in real life and I’m afraid of alienating them or just looking like a weirdo. Anyways, I’ve gained a handful of followers on both the blog and social media so that’s a plus. The point of this blog was to interact and engage with other fans who love the same things I love. While I can’t say I’ve made any new online friends, I’ve come across a bunch of people recently who share my same interests and love for Star Wars, which is pretty great. The funny thing is I’ve never wanted to start a Star Wars podcast so badly, which tends to happen with Star Wars fans. You just want to talk about Star Wars all the time and podcasting is way easier than blogging (imo). For now, I will continue to focus on writing and loving Star Wars as much as I can and see where it takes me.

Something fun I’ve been doing in my spare time is learning Aurebesh. You know, from Star Wars? Why on earth am I learning a fictional writing system? Well, first of all, why not? Second of all, secret messages hello! And third of all, I want to be able to read something I see quite frequently in the Star Wars universe and the future Star Wars Land at Disney. Of course I should take the time to brush up on my Spanish or French but nah, Aurebesh is where it’s at.

Writing each letter multiple times really helps when learning how to read it.

May the force be with you!

My last semester of college is halfway done and I don’t know how to feel about it. On one hand I am SO ready to be finished with school and never worry about writing a paper again, on the other hand I’m scared about the future. I’ve been thinking a lot about what I want to pursue and how I can get there and it’s really scary. I know what I would love to do, getting there is the difficult part. I hope that I can figure things out soon so that job hunting will be easier and my mind can take a break from worrying so much.

I hope you all are doing well. If you’re interested in following me on Twitter or Instagram, I’m @jedilore and I’m always up for Star Wars related discussions or anything else on your mind!

  1. Nice post! I love that you’ve been studying up on aurebesh, as I`ve been thinking about getting a tattoo of John 3:16 on aurebesh my arm, but it probably won’t ever happen. I`m kind of in the same place as you are with college and being super shy. Good thing Star Wars will always be there for us!

  2. Thanks! I’m not familiar with bible verses, but if the quote is meaningful to you and you love Star Wars then the tattoo sounds like a great idea. And yeah, I don’t know where I would be without Star Wars… 🙂
