10 Times Emily Gilmore Was Savage

Sometimes she really has no chill.

10 Times Emily Gilmore Was Savage

In honor of the Gilmore Girls Revival, which premieres on Netflix November 25, I decided to re-watch the entire series. While doing so, I realized something that I had never noticed before. Emily Gilmore is savage. The matriarch of the family can really throw shade when she decides to. To commemorate this, here is a list of my top ten favorite Emily shade moments.

10. When she said this not so subtle dig into Lorelai

We all remember that episode back in season one when Lorelai and Rory just reconnected with Emily and Richard, and Emily thought that Rory should get to know her grandfather and that the best way to do that would be to go golfing. Obviously Rory would need to borrow her mothers old golf clubs that are wasting away just like the rest of Lorelai's potential.

9. That time she had no patients for incompetence

Emily doesn't have time for anyones incompetence. She's an important woman with places to be and people to see.

8. ...Even on the phone

For the record the definition is a weakening in the artery wall causing it to enlarge...something I'm sure anyone could have after being ripped into by this queen.

7. ...And Again

Emily? Unreasonable? Never...

6. Just because of this look

Who wouldn't be terrified after getting this stare down?

5. When she was full of wisdom

Emily really has some of the best lines in the show.

4. She can't just wait around all day and night

She really is the queen of sass.

3.When she's open for business

I mean, who doesn't LOVE this classic scene? Season Five was really just a great season all around.

2. When she had no chill

Sometimes she just really got tired of Lorelai's shenanigans.


BURN! Honestly, this is definitely one of my all time favorite Emily scenes. She will always stick up for and protect her family. She's not going to let Shira or any of the Huntzberger clan hurt Rory again.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
