“She asked me to stay and she told me to sit anywhere; when I looked around I noticed there wasn’t a chair,”

This classic Beatles lyric just makes me imagine a scene with Jaylah from Star Trek Beyond being her usual awesome self:

Star Trek Beyond:

Oh, speaking of Jaylah, my little Jaylah finally has a buddy:

I got a little Funko Pop! bobblehead of Spider-Gwen! I finished one of my Spider-Gwen graphic novels that one of my best friends gave me and I loved it! How can I not love a spunky superhero who is a drummer in all-ladies rock and roll band when she’s not webbing around?!

My list of badass ladies to admire just keeps growing..but let’s go back to my number one: my Ahsoka Tano!! Season 2 of Star Wars Rebels came out on DVD and Blu-Ray last week so, that’s basically what I’ve been doing…sorry, productivity! I’m not done yet, because I’m savoring every episode and Rebels Recon, and perhaps watching some scenes over and over again, like Ahsoka’s battle scene with the Seventh Sister (voiced by Sarah Michelle Gellar aka BUFFY aka Freddie Prinze Jr.’s Wife!) in the “Future of the Force” episode. Ahsoka is just phenomenal, so elegant and fierce in her combat. Also, I tweeted about my wonderful purchase and I how spent the rest of that day and Freddie Prinze Jr. AND Ashley Eckstein herself liked my tweet!! It’s the little things that make my day.

Speaking of my idol Ahsoka, look what I have on my car now that I bought from AStickyObsession:

Is it weird I feel like she’s my little Jedi guardian? But really, this decal is amazing and I’ve never seen anything like it until I found this Etsy shop. There’s also a grown-up, Rebels version of Ahsoka that is amazing, but I chose this one because I’m more attached to her Clone Wars look. Speaking of Rebels, there’s an amazing one of Hera as well, but I don’t consider myself enough of a Hera fan to get it, but it’s pretty cool. There’s also a little BB-8 one I have my eye on to order possibly sometime in the nearish future.

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, I lack both the inspiration and the time lately. Alas, I’ll be back shortly, possibly returning with some book reviews! I recently purchased a Black Widow novel called Forever Red, and the cashier at the book store was curious how it would compare to the comics. I only just got into Spider-Gwen but now I need some Black Widow comics as well to compare to this novel I’m excited to read!!

“I like the beats, and the shouting,”

So yes, Star Trek Beyond technically comes out today but I was lucky enough to see it Thursday night and I loved it!! I don’t want to say anything that might spoil the movie, so all I will say is that I love Jayla, played by Sofia Boutella, who was super cool in Kingsman as Gazelle, so I admittedly had high hopes when I discovered that she was in the new Star Trek and I was not disappointed. Yet another strong, woman idol to add to the list! Also, all I want is a cute top (perhaps a flowy tee? I just don’t like the fit of most standard t-shirts) with this image on it because it’s awesome:

Her character is a lone wolf of sorts, just like Rey! She is just awesome and by far my favorite part of the new movie. Oh, and speaking of my idols…

The Her Universe Fashion Show happened tonight at the San Diego Comic Con!! No, I wasn’t there…I never have been but someday I will!! I’m just beyond in awe of Ashley Eckstein’s beautiful Ahsoka-inspired braids and her Ahsoka dress made entirely out of Legos!! I took these from the Snapchat accounts of Hot Topic and Polyvore:

Ashley Eckstein becomes even more fabulous and inspiring every day. On Hot Topic’s Snapchat, she talked about how powerful women are “increasingly being celebrated, highlighted, and applauded”, so of course she had an Ahsoka outfit! But aside from my Ahsoka love, she’s absolutely right and it’s just amazing how strong women are becoming more prominent in our pop culture. Speaking of strong, powerful, awesome women, my two closest girlfriends gave me these graphic novels for my birthday, and I’m so excited to read them:

And they happen to be laying on top of a Star Wars comics-style blanket my boyfriend’s family made for me for my birthday! I’m especially stoked about my Spider-Gwen comics; I’ve been intrigued merely by images of her for a while now, so it will be fun to read her stories.
