10 Signs You and Your Mom are Rory and Lorelai Gilmore
Hello Giggles

So, my mother and I started watching Gilmore Girls last summer, after numerous people told us that we were exactly like the dynamic duo themselves, Lorelai and Rory Gilmore. I had heard about the show, of course - who hasn't? But it wasn't until we were a season deep that we realized that truer words had never been spoken - we are the Gilmore Girls to a T. And that's the point, isn't it? They're supposed to be #relatable, an authentic representation of a mother and daughter who are also best friends. With the revamp series A Year in the Life making waves among watchers old and new, alike, I figured now would be a good time to review some reasons Lorelai and Rory are just like us:

1. You talk about your love lives (or lack thereof)

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F04%2F636164911918901622-514088047_gg%2520boys.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=532&h=2815294e4c964a962c72a8eb14a1b9b4bdf20b10cda20e245ef69bc351b6e039&size=980x&c=3963686741 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F04%252F636164911918901622-514088047_gg%252520boys.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D532%26h%3D2815294e4c964a962c72a8eb14a1b9b4bdf20b10cda20e245ef69bc351b6e039%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3963686741%22%7D" expand=1]

"I told you, you should have swiped left on him."

2. You talk about your latest weird dream

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F04%2F636164913424019936747242817_gg%2520dream.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=484&h=7097a306e97d558bd4bae3c24519ed684aa0f319bf87dad404abb90057cfbe20&size=980x&c=3792281995 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F04%252F636164913424019936747242817_gg%252520dream.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D484%26h%3D7097a306e97d558bd4bae3c24519ed684aa0f319bf87dad404abb90057cfbe20%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3792281995%22%7D" expand=1]

I just wanna know if I'm normal!!!

3. Actually, you talk about pretty much everything.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F05%2F6361655818130118281139733502_gg%2520guess.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=270&h=5ac87d216564c80587ea4d587a41ef6b7c8ca4192503405eb7107ced6fa9bce4&size=980x&c=1440030081 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F05%252F6361655818130118281139733502_gg%252520guess.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D270%26h%3D5ac87d216564c80587ea4d587a41ef6b7c8ca4192503405eb7107ced6fa9bce4%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1440030081%22%7D" expand=1]

Oh no they did not.

4. You share similar tastes in music

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F05%2F636165584782028259876324276_gg%2520music.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=56&h=88afa36ba61ada5cceda319071404521cbd4dd6d3870f807aedd6d38f0c33df3&size=980x&c=3492574950 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F05%252F636165584782028259876324276_gg%252520music.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D56%26h%3D88afa36ba61ada5cceda319071404521cbd4dd6d3870f807aedd6d38f0c33df3%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3492574950%22%7D" expand=1]

Because road trips would be a nightmare, otherwise.

5. When someone new hangs out, you have to give them a crash-course in traditions

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F05%2F636165597118376565774188888_gg%2520tradition%25202.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=713&h=db80cbe8357e081add858116088a367c459f76089361d1fa4efe1ef4de433175&size=980x&c=1627923191 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F05%252F636165597118376565774188888_gg%252520tradition%2525202.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D713%26h%3Ddb80cbe8357e081add858116088a367c459f76089361d1fa4efe1ef4de433175%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1627923191%22%7D" expand=1]

You should have seen my boyfriend's face the first time he sat on the couch for one of my Gilmore Girls viewing parties with my mom.

6. Your affinity for coffee is obviously inherited

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F05%2F636165591009057602607122323_gg%2520coffee.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=917&h=3975e26366f093deed3fae26d56b3505f50b76ee16afd5ad75352f2fb02ecc7f&size=980x&c=3695431223 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F05%252F636165591009057602607122323_gg%252520coffee.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D917%26h%3D3975e26366f093deed3fae26d56b3505f50b76ee16afd5ad75352f2fb02ecc7f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3695431223%22%7D" expand=1]

Don't tell me how to live my life, Luke. It's nature, not nurture.

7. You get way too excited about food

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F05%2F636165592995690799-1129741129_gg%2520food2.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=18&h=3429cb0ad3bdb7e7c9db3afef7c319c0af47efcbd0ef8340788dbc1d96cdf8be&size=980x&c=3571144181 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F05%252F636165592995690799-1129741129_gg%252520food2.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D18%26h%3D3429cb0ad3bdb7e7c9db3afef7c319c0af47efcbd0ef8340788dbc1d96cdf8be%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3571144181%22%7D" expand=1]

You have at least one take-out menu from every joint in town, but you don't really need to look at them, anyway. You have your orders and their numbers memorized,

8. When you fight, you're both miserable

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F05%2F636165599632554977-966310939_gg%2520fight.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=954&h=3538fa08d2b9bfd4bcb3e34dabd70f81e0527faa04d82a7a970b051e5032d384&size=980x&c=759759082 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F05%252F636165599632554977-966310939_gg%252520fight.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D954%26h%3D3538fa08d2b9bfd4bcb3e34dabd70f81e0527faa04d82a7a970b051e5032d384%26size%3D980x%26c%3D759759082%22%7D" expand=1]

And when Rory and Lorelai made up after not talking for months, you cried and called your mom to apologize for a fight you didn't even have.

9. You consult each other on big decisions

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F05%2F636165610549750416-1473238369_gg%2520help.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=669&h=74968e714a0a16cfcb3721599635a5c2581a205b200d984bd7406fb5e3f4d6cb&size=980x&c=2286929108 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F05%252F636165610549750416-1473238369_gg%252520help.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D669%26h%3D74968e714a0a16cfcb3721599635a5c2581a205b200d984bd7406fb5e3f4d6cb%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2286929108%22%7D" expand=1]

Because learning from your own mistakes is completely overrated.

10. You have the same sense of humor

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F04%2F636164907885867051-1216950552_gg%2520humor.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=821&h=bea7c14cb20ebc1585223169136f20e5f7f6d268a9a0dbe318b5af543637983d&size=980x&c=727712257 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F04%252F636164907885867051-1216950552_gg%252520humor.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D821%26h%3Dbea7c14cb20ebc1585223169136f20e5f7f6d268a9a0dbe318b5af543637983d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D727712257%22%7D" expand=1]

Not everyone gets it, but at least one person does.

BONUS: You're best friends ~forever~

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F05%2F6361656051146392171203131584_gg%2520friends2.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=138&h=9190a7ba4de3cada649d1df73df89b9dd14b6ade305d49b6bd80ae64647bb57e&size=980x&c=316858195 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F05%252F6361656051146392171203131584_gg%252520friends2.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D138%26h%3D9190a7ba4de3cada649d1df73df89b9dd14b6ade305d49b6bd80ae64647bb57e%26size%3D980x%26c%3D316858195%22%7D" expand=1]

And you wouldn't want it any other way.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?

13005

If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
