15 Ways Rory Gilmore Prepared Me For College

In honor of the Gilmore Girls reunion a few weeks ago, I decided to recognize Rory Gilmore for helping me through my freshman year. Gilmore Girls was and still is one of the greatest shows, and it introduced me to one of the most inspiring role models. Through Rory's insanely organized and highly motivated disposition as well as her successes and struggles with school work, relationships, and food, I felt prepared and excited to transition into college.

1. Coffee is your best friend.

2. It’s okay to stay in on the weekend.

15. And remember that...

Thanks Rory, couldn't have done it without you!

We Need More Than Memorials this Memorial Day
Cape Cod Irish

When I was a child, I used to look forward to Memorial Day Weekend from the time I returned to school after Christmas vacation.
