5 Things Gilmore Girls Has Taught Me
Erin Jensen

After binge-watching the "Gilmore Girls" series in my first month of college, I have learned quite a bit from the beloved show of the 2000s. The show touched on all the right places of femininity, nerdiness, and love. Although "Gilmore Girls" is only a fictional show it still managed to teach and solidify some life lessons in a fun and entertaining way.

1. Sometimes you don't end up where you think you will be. And that's ok.

We all have that dream school that ever since you can remember, you only pictured yourself going there. Unfortunately, life isn't always on your side and sometimes it is not meant to be. Sometimes loving your dream just isn't enough. But, things always seem to work out in just the right ways. You may not end up at you dream school but that opens up doors for other schools and new relationships and experiences you would have not gotten.

2. Being best friends with your mom is the greatest thing ever.

Everyone loves their mom to the end of the earth, but being best friends with your mom is a whole new level. You can talk to each other about anything and she will never judge you and will always have your best interests in mind. The best kind of bond is the one that can never be broken.

3. Friends will always keep you in check.

Love between friends is a special kind of bond. No matter what you are going through they will always help you out when you are feeling low. They will hold your hand through the all the scary parts and when your allowed grieving time is over, help you get back to your life.

4. It is important to care about academics, not just your appearance

Working hard will get you into the best schools and eventually get you a great job that you love. Sometimes you just have to drop the social pressures about how you look and break open those textbooks.

5. Sometimes you find love in the most unlikely of places.

Love is hard. Sometimes when you aren't even looking, love finds its way into your life. It may not be what you were looking for, but it may just be what you need. Love is love and it comes and goes in life.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.

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.
