also do you ever get emotional because Finn was escaping from the First Order and wanting to keep a low profile but the moment he saw a girl in trouble he didn’t hesitate to get into it and see if he could help somehow, risking exposure

Today was Finn’s last day of his junior year. And since everyone does first and last day pics now…

Kid still has a 4.0 with mostly International Baccalaureate (IB) classes, zero hour jazz band, and he had to take a semester of online PE (I know!) this year to fit everything in his schedule. He’s taking Spanish II over the summer (he took Spanish I last summer), because he can’t squeeze it in during the regular school year and still take band and broadcasting–his two favorite electives. He has a girlfriend he’s been with for over a year, a paid internship with Boeing this summer, and he’s doing summer marching band.

He also has a summer cold and his wrist is bothering him from all the drum performances and practice. I’m incredibly proud, but I fear it’s too much. He doesn’t complain and he seems happy, but sometimes the body lets us know when it’s time to chill.

Speaking of chill, he turned our AC way down last night and I woke up freezing, so he’s still tops at irritating me. The ultimate overachiever.

Everyone who is not Adam Driver says that Adam Driver is uncommonly intense on set. He’s really all-in on becoming Kylo Ren. John Boyega told me that he likes to try to break the Kylo spell by running up to Driver and giving him unexpected hugs. But evidently, it doesn’t shake Driver.
