What It's Like To Have A Lorelai-Rory Relationship With Your Mom

After binge-watching the series Gilmore Girls and being rewarded with the return of the series on Netflix, it made me appreciate Lorelai and Rory's mother-daughter relationship. I started to realize their adorable banter and mutual addition to coffee was much like my mom and I. Here is what you'll relate to if you also have that same Lorelai-Rory relationship with your mother as well:

1. She enables your coffee dependance

Where do you think your lively hood dependence on coffee came from? At least you know your mom to understand and keep coffee on hand at all times.

2. You tell her way too much

There are too many things going on in your life, you can't just not tell your mom about every single one, in very specific detail.

3. Hanging with your mom is more fun than hanging with your friends

If you do it like the Gilmore Girls, a Friday night spent on the couch is more fun than a Friday night at the bar or a party. Load up on food (and coffee, obviously), movies, and blankets - you're all set.

4. Unlimited inside jokes

"You had to have been there" is frequently said at family and friends' gatherings.

5. You care about her opinion on dating

You have to admit, she does have some pretty great advice when it comes to the dating game. After all, she's got years on you.

6. She always makes sure you're fed

Your ability to even consume as much food as you do definitely came from her.

7. Your friends think she's cooler than you

Yeah, my mom really is cooler than me. I can't argue with you on that.

8. You get through painful family dinners together

Awkwardness, getting asked serious questions about your life that you don't even know the answer to, pressured by family members to get married - your mom is there through it all, and vice versa. She doesn't want to deal with the dinners as much as you do, at least you two have each other.

9. You're always there for each other

Your mom knows how to fix a broken heart better than anyone else you know - whether it be over a significant other, a bad grade, etc., she knows just what to do.

10. She's your best friend

If you're lucky enough to have a mom that doubles as your best friend, then you're one of the luckiest daughters alive.

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.

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.
