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.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
