Life Lessons We Learnt From Gilmore Girls

October 09, 2015

Autumn is upon us which means that theres no better time to watch all my favourite Autumn time Gilmore Girls. Theres no place that celebrates Halloween better than Stars Hollow. In celebration of this one of a kind, truly inspiring and absolutely hilarious show, I thought I would share some things that I learnt when watching all seven seasons earlier this year.

1. You get by with a little help from your.. coffee? Before Gilmore Girls I never used to drink coffee and in all honestly, used to think it tasted vile, but after watching them drink their fifth cup each episode I got the urge to try it out again and surprisingly found myself loving it. Ever since then I have never not enjoyed a big steamy cup of joe.

2. Theres no greater friend than your mom. After all, the entire show is about the relationship between mother and daughter so its inevitable that theres going to be a lot about the ups and downs of a mother, daughter relationship. Myself and my mum could relate to so many things that happen between Rory and Lorelai, which is probably why its one of my all time favourite shows because its so relatable and true.

3. The best things can sometimes be right in front of you. It took Lorelai seven seasons to realise that her one true love was Luke Danes from Luke's Diner, Luke Danes. Yeah, the Luke she bought coffee from every single day. She spent seven seasons looking for her 'Mr Right' when he was literally two minutes away. Oh Lorelai!

4. I dont have to feel like I've wasted my day when I binge watch a full season of PLL.
5. Education matters. If theres one person who gives me the motivation to study then it is definitely Miss Rory Gilmore herself. My teachers never make me want to study but I watch Rory reading at her desk or working on her new feature for the Yale Daily News, and I suddenly find myself picking up my history revision guides.

6. Mornings are the WORST! I have never been a morning person and resent the sound of my alarm clock, and Gilmore Girls have given me all the more reasons to try and stay in bed that extra fifteen minutes.

7. You are NEVER too old to enjoy everything you used to love as in your childhood. Disney has no age restrictions!

8. It's okay not to have a path to follow right now because you will eventually find it. Rory spent the majority of the show trying to figure out what to do with her life. She knew what she wanted to do and worked her hardest to try and get there... until she dropped out of Yale and spent half a season living it up in Emily and Richards house.
