As this whole "Gilmore Girls" revival is happening and getting huge, I am watching the show for the second time around just to be caught up before I start the revival. I have been seeing a lot of Gilmore Girls merchandise and popularity surrounding the topic. I saw this mug that said, "You're the Lane to my Rory," and I sent the link to my roommate since I am definitely the "Lane" in our friendship. We have been binge watching "Gilmore Girls" and I have decided that we were meant to be in that show based on our natural wit and connection to the characters.
I think everyone can see some of these characters in themselves. It doesn't matter if you've seen the show or not. This show is super relative to what we go through and it's funny. Who doesn't love that?
How do we know that we are mentally connected to Gilmore Girls characters? Well, here are a few instances that these fictional people are practically mirror images of us.
1. Your best friend knows you need coffee
Yes, Lane. First off, coffee is a lifesaver, especially if you've pulled an all-nighter to get the homework done for your 8 a.m. class. Also, my roommate and I have come to find out that a lot of the things we have in common revolve around food and drinks, coffee being the most prominent.
2. Because you just really love it
The coffee! It's so important that I had to include this picture of Rory crying because she loves it so much. Same, Rory, same.
3. And you can't really adult
So, adulting is no fun. There are constant complaints (mostly out of my mouth) about how I don't like having responsibilities. This is a really common complaint among college students and young adults.
4. You have major freak outs... a lot
Okay, okay. This one is totally me. I have freak-outs just about every minute of every day. This kind of conversation happens a lot between best friends.
5. You would rather eat junk food than exercise
I'm all about the food at games, whereas, my roommate is the one I would be watching play. I'm not much of a sports fan, but I am a fan of food, especially junk food.
6. You are the master at sarcasm
To be honest, I am not very good at being sarcastic, but I do appreciate it and it's great fun.
7. Running just really isn't your thing
I remember a few months ago when my roommate was trying to train me to run a Turkey Trot and I was totally Rory. I felt like I was dying and I was exhausted, as most people are. Being skinny doesn't mean you're in shape and it's a hard fact to face.
8. You have a best friend who reminds your boy crazy self the truth
You tell 'em, Paris. My roomie and I exchanged this phrase a lot over the semester.
9. You just really love eating
Even though my roommate doesn't really like Mexican food, we both love food (as stated before) and this is pretty much how we feel when dinner rolls around.
10. You have that crazy conservative Christian friend or you are that crazy conservative Christian friend
Lane is pretty much every Christian ever.
11. You need coffee, you love coffee and you breathe coffee
Again, with the coffee. We've gotten addicted to it.
12. You're just awesome
In conclusion, we totally rock. Even though we go through slumps in school, in sports, in work, and in life, we still believe in ourselves and in each other.
