8 Signs Rory Gilmore Might Be Your Spirit Animal

8 Signs Rory Gilmore Might Be Your Spirit Animal

There are many ways I relate to Rory from Gilmore Girls.

If you haven't watched Gilmore Girls, I 10/10 recommend binge-watching the Netflix series over your holiday break. One wouldn't expect to learn much from watching Netflix; however, I came to a few realizations from watching the classic television show.

I appreciate that the show highlights a mother-daughter relationship, showing that it can be cool to be BFFs with your mom. I also learned that taking chances can lead to great things, like when Rory made her college decision. I recently took a pretty scary chance when I decided to attend C of C, twelve hours away from home, but I am so glad I took an opportunity to get out of my comfort zone.

Most importantly, the show taught me that it's OK to be a "good girl." There is nothing wrong with making school a priority and generally being a good human, as long as making time for relationships and having fun are also priorities. As a freshman in college, I feel that I relate to Rory Gilmore on many levels. Below are a few ways I relate to my gal Rory.

1. My mom is my best friend.

I am not ashamed of calling my mom while in college, even if it's just to hear her voice.

2. I may have a slight coffee addiction.

Honestly, what would I do without it?

3. School is important to me.

I have always cared about my education and strive to do well.

4. I enjoy a Friday night on the town but know it's perfectly fine to stay in once in a while.

It is good to have a balance between going out and just chilling.

5. I recognize my sarcasm.


6. We all have bad days.

A college experience doesn't always consist of partying and pulling all-nighters. I personally find other ways to enjoy my time.

8. I like tacos.

Me 3/7 days a week.

Hello, Goodbye

Why do so many hellos end in goodbye?

We can say hello, just as fast as goodbye. Just like waves come and leave ashore. It's funny how many hellos and goodbyes a person can say in their lifetime.

Some of our hellos we have said are lifelong hellos and some are just for a little while, until its time to say goodbye. Those short hellos can be some of the hardest goodbyes we might ever have to part with.

Some goodbyes are because of deaths or breakups; no matter the bond we know we have to say goodbye. Goodbyes can be one of the hardest things to face. The people we love sometimes are not intended to be in our lives forever and we ask ourselves, why must these people, who we love, have to leave?

I don’t know the answer to that question. I don’t think anyone will ever really understand why? But, they were brought into our lives for a reason - a lesson perhaps. Peyton Sawyer once said that “people always leave.” I guess, she was right. People do always leave and sometimes the person may not even know its happening.

You may have seen them start to slowly fade away and you know you have to move on and let go. It’s harder holding on to someone who stops loving you. We find ourselves asking can we ever go a day without thinking of them?

And we sure hope so, because every day there is this pain in our hearts from where we opened up and loved. I think every day that hurt slowly heals, but like any other wound, you are left with a scar that will be there forever.

So, as humans, we will still catch ourselves wondering why are there so many hellos that end in goodbye?
