11 Times You Weren't Rory Gilmore But Wanted To Be

If only I was as dedicated to studying as I was to mac and cheese.

I, like many others, have guiltily (yet also shamelessly) binge-watched all seven seasons of "Gilmore Girls". I vividly remember coming home from school and sitting my middle-school self on the couch with an after school snack of peanut butter and celery and wishing with all my heart I was Rory Gilmore. I mean, whether you like the show or not, we can all agree on one thing: Rory had it all. Brains, looks, guys, cool mom, sassy demeanor, great taste in music, you name it. In tribute to "Gilmore Girls" airing on Netflix and in an attempt to further procrastinate my homework, I’ve created a list of several times I really wished I was Rory Gilmore (but, unfortunately, wasn’t).

1. When you spend more time picking out your outfit than you do studying.

Rory would definitely disapprove. You definitely aren’t like Rory if your morning consists of over an hour trying on different shirt/pants/shoes combinations and only about 10 minutes doing the homework you were supposed to finish last night (oops).

2. When you go to the library solely to socialize.

Also guilty of this. Rory would never waste a single second talking to her friends if she’s in the presence of books.

3. You’ve never seen "Grey’s Anatomy"…

This mostly likely only applies to me.

4. You’re not a hopeless romantic.

I’ve always wanted to be, but if I’m being honest here, I don’t care nearly as much about the male species as Rory...sorry not sorry.

5. When you’re not an avid coffee drinker.

I find myself needing caffeine more and more these days. It’s too bad I’m not like Rory who is obsessed with coffee (I’ll stick to tea, thanks).

6. When you can eat junk food for every meal, never go to the gym and still look cute in everything.

Maybe I’m just a little annoyed with Rory because of this. I mean, I love pizza and tater tots just as much as the next person, but if I ate them three times a day, you’d never see me out in a crop top.

7. You have no idea what you’re doing with your life.

I’m pretty sure Rory has known she wanted to be a journalist since she was an infant. Meanwhile, I don’t even know what I want to eat for breakfast tomorrow.

8. You aren’t as witty as you think you are.

I don’t know about you, but I would never want to get in an argument with Rory Gilmore. The comebacks she comes up with are poetic compared to my usual “I know you are, but what am I?”

9. When you are literally terrible at explaining your feelings.

I don’t know if it’s because of all the books she has read or if "Gilmore Girls" just had a really great staff or writers, but Rory always seems to be able to explain how she is feeling perfectly. Meanwhile I can’t even get out a “Hi” without questioning myself.

10. When you try to be an adult and not call your mom every day.

Big mistake, honestly. Rory knows that moms are basically the answer to every problem you have.

11. You still don’t really know what college is all about.

Wait...it's not?

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.
