I honestly can't say I remember my first SW memory. It was just always there. I must have seen it before I could even talk! But I do remember fondly how my love of it carried over into elementary school. Third grade was a time when everyone had to have their own, cool little 'club' at recess. First, there was the Civil War Club (yeah, and you think the SW Nerds were weird children...). Then we tried the Sim Farm Club, which was just incredibly weird Finally, we settled on something all my friends loved- Star Wars! I still have little notebooks charting people's SW Names, X-wing names, Y-Wing names and partners... you get the picture. Needless to say, I always wanted to be someone related to Boba Fett or Obi Wan (I liked Han, but thought he was too 'popular'... yeah, got over that ). Our 'club' had officers of the week, and even made an absolutely horrid book of illustrations, which I still have! That's just one of the many times I have been united with my friends through SW. I have met some of my best friends, RL and online, through the GFFA. It's been a source of entertainment, escapism, and joy for all of the SW fans I know- myself included. It continues to be, and I suspect will always be, a big part of my life in the way of my genuine love for all things Star Wars.
