Going Back to School as Told by Gilmore Girls

Lots of coffee, lots of studying, and lots of Netflix.

Going Back to School as Told by Gilmore Girls
The Hollywood Reporter

Now that college is back in session, I think I speak for everyone when I say that I am definitely having trouble getting back into the swing of things. Seeing family, celebrating holidays, and spending every day watching Netflix is now a thing of the past. However, I like to think of ways of mixing my love of Netflix and school.

1. Saying goodbye to your family

Only college kids who live on campus can relate to this. Leaving the comfort of your home and an actual meal every night can be one of the toughest parts of college.

2. Unpacking

"It feels like just yesterday I was packing all of this stuff to take it home. Why didn't it feel like this much stuff? Oh, God, where am I going to put everything? I don't have enough room for all of this! I think I'll just take a nap instead..."

3. Seeing your roommate(s)/friends again

Again, not everyone can relate to loving their roommates, but for those who are lucky, reuniting is exciting. If you're not your roommate's biggest fan, then seeing some friends you met from classes or living on the same floor as them is just as fun.

4. Regretting that 8 AM

Having a class so early when all your friends are hanging out late or when you have a long night of studying is the worst.

5. Realizing that you and your roommate(s) know a little too much about each other

When you're living with someone, you see their good and bad side. Whether you're messy, super clean, sleep too much, don't sleep at all, your roommate knows all of your quirks and you know theirs.

6. Feeling independent

Being in college is a lot of people's first taste of freedom. You choose when your classes are, what you do in your free time, when you'll go back to your room, and no one is allowed to tell you what to do. Someone will probably still try to, though.

7. Having no money for food

You think that the whole "broke college student" cliché is funny until you realize it's a legitimate thing that happens. Paying for textbooks and your own school supplies and forget it if you have your own apartment. Let's hope you like ramen!

8. When you're struggling in a class

Sometimes, you just don't click with a professor. Then you're a month in and kicking yourself for not checking Rate My Professor before putting your schedule together.

9. Those days where you just wanna be alone

College can be stressful because you're constantly around people, and you're never guaranteed alone time. Even if you love being around others, it can get exhausting.

10. Whirlwind of feelings

College can feel like the best moments of your life one day, and another you can be on the verge of a mental breakdown.

11. Not getting enough sleep

Between having to cram for tests, doing homework, extra curricular activities, and having a social life, you can count how many hours of sleep you got the past week on one hand.

12. Despite all of the bad, you know you're going to do great

Waking up for class, time management, and many different factors of college life can be stressful and a lot to handle. As long as you do your best, that's all anyone could ask for! Here's to a semester full of Gilmore Girls binging.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.


When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."

Throughout quarantine, something that a lot of us picked up on was working out. With all the free time, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to work on that "dream bod" you've been wanting for years, or to just feel good about yourself.

A common way to stay motivated and keep yourself on-task is to follow fitness influencers on various platforms. For some people, yes, this can be a healthy and helpful way to keep your drive. In other cases, however, this can do more harm than good.
