My Star Wars Bucket List

So a lot of people have a “bucket list,” a list of things they want to do or accomplish before they die (kick the bucket, lol). I sort of have one for life in general, but more importantly, I have a Star Wars bucket list. Star Warsy things I’d like to do or accomplish before I die. In no particular order, here are the things I’d love to do in the world of Star Wars:

Star Wars Celebration. Having tuned into the last couple of Celebrations, I’ve firmly decided that I MUST attend one of these amazing gatherings of fans and creators. I think it would be immensely fun and exciting. And yes, expensive. No matter. You find the money for the things that are important to you, right? Celebration is skipping next year, and will be in Japan in 2025. Pretty sure I’m going to wait until it’s back the States. Who knows when I’ll get there, but just thinking about seeing the stars, the cosplays, listening in on panels, and just gathering together with fellow members of my tribe makes me determined to get there some day.

Galaxy’s Edge. I’ve never really wanted to go to Disney, but this looks fun. Another expensive excursion, but one well worth it, I would think. I’d love to stroll through Batuu’s Black Spire Outpost, having read the book (and it’s actually a really good book, not just a plug for the park). One thing I’d love to do is make my own lightsaber. Very cool.

Write a Star War. Everybody’s got a book in them, don’t they? I’ve got a few gathering dust in the drawer, so to speak, but I’d really love to write a Star Wars story. Not in any official capacity, of course–as if!–but my own fan fiction. I’ve actually got one in the works, but alas, only work on it in spurts here and there. It’s about a young woman from Alderaan who is determined to find her father, who was imprisoned by the Empire for defending the Jedi in the early days of the Empire. She’s helped by her ex-flame who’s a pilot, and a reluctant young Jedi who was trained by her father’s Jedi friend. I really do like it, and have some great ideas for it. I’ve got about 100 pages, and an outline. But I will finish it one day. Promise, lol.

Learn Aurabesh. Aurabesh is the Star Wars alphabet that you can see in many places in Star Wars stories. I don’t think I have the patience to learn a new language like French or Russian, but this I think I can do. That way I can read the hidden messages sometimes put in the Aurabesh in the shows or movies. And it just seems fun.

Read all the Legends books. This is a tall order, seeing that there’s an endless number of these books, but going through the Youtini Academy, I’m getting excited about reading them. All the while keeping up with Canon books, which seem to come out at breakneck speed these days. So this will be a long project, as I pepper in a Legends book here and there amid the Canon. This could take years, lol, but that’s okay because there is a finite number of them, at least.

Have you done any of these things? What’s on your Star Wars bucket list? Let me know in the comments and we’ll talk about it!

  1. Hi Tina, I’ve managed to accomplish one or two of my SW Bucket list goals. I assembled my Jedi costume (I even have two sets of spare tunics too) and I now own 7 lightsabers. I got to meet Admiral Ackbar (and Salacious B. Crumb) when I met Tim Rose at a comic con. I too have a Fan-Fiction I am working on retelling my story as a Jedi (and how I came to be here on Earth😁) however I am in the middle of making edits….but keep working we’ll get our stories finished one day!

      1. Hi again, I got my first saber back in 2015 as a combined birthday and Christmas present to myself as it was a “big” birthday. I never imagined I would accumulate 7 – but I have to say two were actually gifted to me by a pair of fantastic members of the saber community that felt they wanted to thank me for my contributions to the community (my lightsaber designing and art works). Those two sabers are very special to me.
        I think you need to add “own a lightsaber” to your list!

  2. Nice post. Writing about Star Wars has also been somewhere on my list but never quite getting there. Inspiration for me is fleeting at best and I tend to do things on the spur of the moment after watching or reading something relating to star wars. And then it ends lol I never follow all the way through. My top experience would also be going to SWC somewhere, hopefully I’ll get to go to the US again or even London. But dreams are free for now lol
