21 Pieces Of Advice From "Gilmore Girls"

"Gilmore Girls" is one of those shows that really pulls you in and drags you along for the ride. You get very attached to the characters and emotionally invested in the relationships. Your heart breaks when someone leaves the show, but not as much as it does when the show ends and you realize that they're never coming back. But the most heartbreaking thing is when a show as relatable and close to your heart with such beloved characters as this comes to an end.

I have just recently finished watching every episode of "Gilmore Girls" on Netflix, and I couldn't be more devastated that it's over. I have also just recently found out about the upcoming four 90-minute-episode revival that is coming to Netflix (I don't know when it will be coming out, but I sure hope it's soon)! So in anticipation of the revival, here is a list of some advice the show has bestowed upon dedicated viewers over the years.

1. It is not an obsession. It is a lifestyle. It is a religion.

2. Sometimes it's good to avoid problematic situations when possible. But it's not always possible to avoid them.

3. And just because you don't like something doesn't mean you can run away from it. You have to face it head on.

4. At the heart of it all, we really all just want the same thing.

5. Amusement can be used as a good coping mechanism for pain.

6. It is OK, and even necessary, to wallow for a while after you get your heart broken.

7. And this is the best way to wallow.

8. We all need someone who can make us laugh, even when we don't feel like laughing.

9. Sometimes we start to like certain things as an act of rebellion against someone who dislikes the thing.

10. We all need someone that will love us always, unconditionally. Someone who will support us in our decisions, even if they go against everything we've been planning our whole lives.

11. Just because you feel an attraction does not mean that you have to act upon it.

12. If it's meant to be, it will happen.

13. Beauty sleep is a real thing.

14. Don't waste your life doing everything safe and by the books. You've got to take some risks every once in a while. If you don't take any risks, you're not really living.

15. Take that leap of faith.

16. No matter how old you get, it is OK to need your mommy sometimes.

17. Matters of the heart will always inevitably turn your brain into mush.

18. Faster isn't always better. Especially when you can do something productive while you wait.

19. We can't always help who or what we love.

20. No guy is worth throwing your life away for. Unless, of course, he has a motorcycle.

21. Be proud of who you are. Always. And if you don't like something, change it.

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.

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.
