Eat. Sleep. Look for a power source - rinse, repeat. That has been my life for the last few days – I’m going on very little sleep. I think my eyelids are somehow staying open on their own. I’m so burnt out and in heated moment in front of H.R. and Tracy – I threw in the towel. This can’t be done. My outburst caused the two to have a very heated debate about heroes, which led H.R. to reveal he’s never seen the original Star Wars trilogy. Tracy and I were dumbfounded – I told him to watch it a hundred times since he’s come to this earth.
Tracy popped it in and told me I needed to watch for a distraction, which was great until we reached the end of Empire. The final scenes hit me hard in the ol’ stomach. And I’m not talking about like when I scarf down a triple order of Big Belly Burger. These movies are all about the classic hero’s journey. And it got me thinking about what that word meant – hero. I miss the days it was just another name for a delicious 12-inch oil drenched sandwich. But here I was ready to give up the hunt for the power source. Well, no more of that, hombre. I’ve got to focus on being the best I can be. The team is looking to me to continue this journey and defeat Savitar.
Tracy threw on Return of the Jedi. H.R. was mesmerized by the movies and watching it with them kept me from totally balling my eyes out. But as the movie started it got me thinking about what must of happened to Luke Skywalker between the bummer ending of the last movie and this one. Somewhere along the way he became a full on badass Jedi! And I saw that that is what I need to be. I mean, not become a Jedi, though, man that would be awesome-sauce! But to become the hero of my own story – and thus, I’m about to pound some more caffeine thanks to Tracy and keep on the hunt. I know the source is out there and Cisco Ramon won’t rest until it’s found!
