Real question: why did you choose to introduce the series to her based on canon timeline instead of release date? Side curious: are you going to explain all the things they should not have changed in the later releases? Ie Han shot first, replacing Shaw with Christensen in VI, etc.

Someone in her class told her things about Darth Vader so I did the chronological order to throw her off the scent. I will explain to her those differences in the original vs what they show now. Disney plus added Greedo saying Macklunky or malarkey or some crap too

You mean you’re still working but watching tv all day?

Got it. I actually have no assignments at all but feel too guilty to watch tv instead 😂 Keep asking my boss for work though

What order are you watching them in, release order or chronologically?

I've watched them every which way, we are doing chronological for her (shes only 9) so it's easier for her to follow

I am an ex-weight lifter. I switched to cardio strictly since I’m getting older and I can’t deadlift / bench like I used to…I realized strength training is still an important component, however, and want to ease back into it. Any tips on not overdoing it or under doing my workouts? I never know if I should focus more on reps/lower weight rather than maxing out/less reps. Also I feel I do too much variety so how do I split up my work? (Pull vs. push)? TIA!

Long Post : I have a divorced female friend that I have known for over 15 years and consider as a sister. For the past couple weeks because I was on the bench and bored we talked about an hour+ often, especially when I am walking and need company. My wife went through my T mobile call history and mad because I'm talking to her too often and too long. She knows the friend as well and we all hangout on multiple occasions. Am I doing something wrong here? Or my wife is just insecure?
