11 Things That Happen When You And Your Mom Have A 'Gilmore Girls' Kind Of Relationship
Gilmore Girls Revival

Any fan of "Gilmore Girls" knows it's not just a show ("it's a lifestyle. It's a religion"). Besides the fast-paced, witty script and lovable characters, I've appreciated watching Lorelai and Rory's shenanigans because I watched it with my mom. It's our thing. We watched every season over the course of a year (the craziest year of my life I might add, due to reasons that deserve no further mentioning here). Now living in the dorms, it's comforting to re-watch the episodes and remember sitting in my living room with my mom, laughing, crying, and sometimes falling asleep during our favorite show. It seems only fitting that the Gilmore Girls revival will be up on Netflix the same week that I get to come back home for Thanksgiving. So in honor of my relationship with my mom and the comeback of the Gilmores, here are a few things that all girls know to be true when they have a Lorelai-Rory type of relationship with their mothers:

1. You've often heard the phrase, "What? You told your mom?!"

Duh. Of course I did.

2. Furthermore, there's no such thing as TMI when it comes to you two.

Yes, boys, she knows everything.

3. Life just gets depressing when you guys don't talk.

4. Which makes it even harder to stay mad at each other.

5. She's one of the only people who can get on your level of weirdness.

6. You sometimes forget that it's considered embarrassing to be best friends with your mom.

7. You tell each other really random details about your day.

8. You may not agree on which of Rory's boyfriends was the best, but you'll still tell her about all of your situationships.

But for the record... #TeamLogan

9. She praises you (and only mocks you a little bit) when you're rebellious for once in your life because sometimes she is more a friend than a mom and that's okay.

10. But ultimately you both are totally cool with being lame together from time to time.

11. Unlike many other mother-daughter relationships, you can tell it to each other straight.

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.
