9 Rory Gilmore Quotes That Explain Your Life During Finals Season

"Who cares if I'm pretty if I fail my finals?"

Rory Gilmore

Quick-witted and insanely smart, Rory Gilmore has a track record for memorable, relevant quotes that have become a part of fans’ repertoires. With it being finals season, many of Rory’s words can be conveniently interpreted to reflect life during the last weeks of the semester. Here are some of Rory’s wisest words that explain your life during finals season.

"Who cares if I'm pretty if I fail my finals?"

Who cares if I'm pretty if I fail my finals?

Gone are the days of actually trying to look decent when going out in public. Now you’re heading to the library in workout shorts and an old t-shirt with your hair in a messy bun. School first, fashion second.

“My books look sad. Can books look sad?”

My books look sad. Can books look sad?

Yes, all of your textbooks will look very depressed…if you don’t open them. Crack those books and get studying! You wouldn’t want your books to be sad now, would you?

“College is not just a crazy, wild, sleep-deprived, hedonistic society!”

College is not just a crazy, wild, sleep-deprived, hedonistic society!

Actually, it is. Emphasis on the sleep-deprived.

“I’ve now used the word ‘suck’ so much that it’s lost all meaning to me.”

I\u2019ve now used the word \u2018suck\u2019 so much that it\u2019s lost all meaning to me.

And you’ve probably used it about your final term paper or your ability to stay focused on studying for more than five minutes at a time.

“I cannot do this alone. I need my mommy and I don’t care who knows it.”

Lorelai and Rory hugging

It’s okay, we all turn into needy children during finals season.

“A ‘D’ at Stars Hollow High is like an ‘F’ at Chilton. It’s worse. It’s like a ‘G’…or a ‘W’.”

Rory dropping backpacks

You’re basically accepting that there is a class or two in which you might just get a grade that comes after the letter ‘F’. You tried.

“A little nervous breakdown can really work wonders for a girl.”

I love coffee!

A nervous breakdown doubles as an excellent study break!

“Can’t you shut up for five seconds, please? Thank you.”

I really do hate everyone today, including myself.

Your response when your friends start daydreaming aloud about the imminent summer. Or your friends’ response to you when you procrastinate studying by rambling on about who knows what.

“I can’t finish all this and sleep at the same time."

I can\u2019t finish all this and sleep at the same time.

It may seem like you can’t finish, but trust me. You can. And you will. Every difficult task eventually gets completed. And even if you’re seriously lacking some sleep, you have an entire summer ahead of you to make up for it.

As difficult as finals season is, and as much as these Rory quotes can relate to your life at this time, it’s important to stay motivated and focused on finishing the semester. Remember that summer is right around the corner. Besides, if you’re ever feeling in need of some motivation as you push through finals season, just ask yourself: WWRGD. (What would Rory Gilmore do?) I think you know the answer.

One of the darkest moments in my family's life.

Huffington Post

I knew this day was coming when my mother’s decided to get spinal surgery. February 20, was the date her surgery was set. It was a normal day in school when I received the message of a lifetime. My oldest sibling telling me our mother’s surgery went wrong. Imagining what could possibly go wrong made my eyes water. Felt like I was the only person on my bus. Everything was silence and my mind was racing. There was never a positive thought in my head. Taking the last step off the bus and the first step onto the porch, everything was real.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.
