Going Back To School, As Told By Gilmore Girls
Gilmore Girls

We all know the struggle of ending summer vacation only to begin a stressful, busy school year. It's no fun. Here's how back-to-school time usually goes, as told by Gilmore Girls.

You're happily enjoying your summer, oblivious to the proximity you are to the start of the school year, when boom: back-to-school commercials appear out of nowhere.

Next, you get your schedule, and it starts to feel real.

The last week of summer goes by way too quickly.

When, after sleeping in until noon all summer, you alarm goes off at 6 AM on the first day of school.

Walking the halls and seeing all the faces you tried to forget about over the summer is a nightmare.

I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but still...it is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.
