I have recently become involved in a charity organization in Lancaster, PA. It is known as Rebel Cause Lancaster.
What is great about me joining Rebel Cause is the validation that it gave. Prior to learning about the group I was close to a point where I did not know what to do with Star Wars. I still loved the franchise, but I had no one to share this love with. I am not even sure how I came across Rebel Cause, but I wrote an article about them for my school newspaper, The Snapper. You can find the article here.
I never imagined what would become of my interaction with Kaden Patrick, the illustrious leader of Rebel Cause, at the American Bar and Grill in Lancaster. Long story short, I joined up with Rebel Cause as a social media/ writer guy.
We recently had an event at a bar in Lancaster called Rumplebrewskins. The event was a great success and I am amazed at how the Star Wars community came together to raise money for Water Street Rescue Mission. It made me proud to be a Star Wars fan once again.
I had lost that pride prior to meeting Kaden and getting it back was one of the greatest feelings I have ever had. Star Wars means many things to me, but the main thing is it was, and continues to be, my rock. It has always been there for me and I will always appreciate what it has done for me.
Knowing that Rebel Cause has my back now is great. Like I said earlier, I feel valid in my love for Star Wars.
Thank you Rebel Cause. You turned out to be my New Hope.
Hello friends! I realize it has been a while since I have last posted on this site. There are quite a few factors that can explain this. The main one is this: life.
With college back in full swing, I took on a lot of responsibilities and I took a lot more than I initially expected. This is not a bad thing, however, and I am happy that I figured out how much is too much in a healthy way.
To list everything I was doing would be a waste of time due to the fact that I am not focused on some of it anymore and I am a lot more focused on other things. What would be good to note is that I need to work on the whole focus thing. While managing all of the things that I do, I lose track of other things. Such as school work and homework. Basically, there are two things at the top right now. The number one thing being class.
I think that this should be an obvious one. The second big thing is my internship at Lancaster Newspaper. Through a program here at Millersville, I got an internship with LNP and, to be honest, I love my job. The third priority is the Snapper. I am still opinion editor of the Snapper at this point, but I have intentions of moving up the chain of command sometime in the future.
Life is going by fast and I wanted to take a moment and type this up so I could look at everything with some perspective. Some positive self-affirmation if you will. There has been one hiccup this semester so far and I am happy with just having one. It has been three months since I have started back at Millersville and I am pleased with my progress.
So, with that, I will bid you farewell for now. I plan on using the blog as an outlet again this semester and I think that my readers will be reading a lot more positive stories in the future instead of the crisis mode stories you guys may be used to. Thanks for reading!
