“Shouldn’t we give thanks first?”

Waiting for Thanksgiving Break as Told by Gilmore Girls

Can you believe it’s already November? I feel like it was just fall break and now Thanksgiving break is almost here, which means the semester is almost over. The stress of midterms, passing classes and an insane workload is almost gone. After Thanksgiving break, we just have to make it through finals and then it’s holiday season! It came so quickly and as much as I love college I cannot wait to be home for break with my family and friends. The Gilmore Girls have the perfect reactions to just about everything, nothing can stress them out when they have coffee by their sides. Let’s see how they feel about Thanksgiving break coming up!

1. It’s November already?

Believe me I am just as shocked as Emily Gilmore appears to be. I feel like and I bet many of you do too that I was just moving in for my second year of college and now Thanksgiving break is almost here! Where did the time go?

2. Will the workload ever end?

I think Paris’s expression pretty much sums it up. In the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving break you feel like the work just doesn’t stop coming and it may never stop.

3. The stress

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F16%2F636148524240502403-1934556134_GG3.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=647&h=356d5bcefa9ed249e7481492afe21154acb0df39f88988ead46c0f49e2d5540c&size=980x&c=989479214 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F16%252F636148524240502403-1934556134_GG3.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D647%26h%3D356d5bcefa9ed249e7481492afe21154acb0df39f88988ead46c0f49e2d5540c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D989479214%22%7D" expand=1]

Sometimes, like Sookie, when you’re so stressed out you’re not sure if you are crying or laughing. It may be a little bit of both.

4. Can’t get sick!

So as long as you’re a Gilmore you have nothing to worry about, right? That’s unfortunate for the rest of us, but we can all just hope for the best!

5. Just a few more days’ left

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F16%2F636148525455524713-1380387268_GG5.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=949&h=f8c911d90d74d2261b736513ca2376c71c9235942a0edcce9dde26c05c53d666&size=980x&c=2829607099 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F16%252F636148525455524713-1380387268_GG5.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D949%26h%3Df8c911d90d74d2261b736513ca2376c71c9235942a0edcce9dde26c05c53d666%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2829607099%22%7D" expand=1]

Like Lorelai we may need coffee in an IV with only a few days left until break, professors will be giving us work upon work. Coffee is the only way we stay up and survive the days ahead.

6. Not being able to wait to see family and friends

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F16%2F636148526132355913-1419394196_GG6.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=700&h=8dfedca5d7d00b3d4ba28943e4544fb13bdbae8e83e4ff233969a553697ccd27&size=980x&c=2345522654 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F16%252F636148526132355913-1419394196_GG6.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D700%26h%3D8dfedca5d7d00b3d4ba28943e4544fb13bdbae8e83e4ff233969a553697ccd27%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2345522654%22%7D" expand=1]

The happy dance that Lorelai is doing is how we feel when we finally get to see our family and friends again! We will be so happy when we get home!

7. The food

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F16%2F636148526497326046-608736903_GG7.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=66&h=f7f2b6d45dc76ac5c2dd2dce65de2d7720161bc86a69d60905b3d7eb6e6544a2&size=980x&c=885021508 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F16%252F636148526497326046-608736903_GG7.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D66%26h%3Df7f2b6d45dc76ac5c2dd2dce65de2d7720161bc86a69d60905b3d7eb6e6544a2%26size%3D980x%26c%3D885021508%22%7D" expand=1]

We may not have four Thanksgiving dinners to go to like Rory and Lorelai, but we would be happy to eat four dinners worth of Thanksgiving food. I can’t wait for the turkey, the mashed potatoes and the stuffing, my mouth is watering just thinking about it!

8. Yay for the holiday season!

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F16%2F636148526706559582-991005586_GG8.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=48&h=a56e4c67dfc7417598eecd4684eb1d5b84f00447ad3cb64a3435b7aa9c3f0948&size=980x&c=1045332584 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F16%252F636148526706559582-991005586_GG8.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D48%26h%3Da56e4c67dfc7417598eecd4684eb1d5b84f00447ad3cb64a3435b7aa9c3f0948%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1045332584%22%7D" expand=1]

Thanksgiving is just the start to the holiday season, then comes Hanukkah and then Christmas! After break we only have a few weeks and then finals and we get to the month long break and celebrate! I don’t know about you, but I’m excited for the snow just like Luke and Lorelai (aren't they the cutest?).

We just have to get through a few more days until Thanksgiving break and the holiday season, so let’s take a page out of Lorelai’s book to get through it, “Coffee please, and a shot of cynicism.”

Have a great Thanksgiving break!

There is so many opportunities to get out of the house and enjoy the season before the snow starts to come back. Here are 25 interesting dates that are doable almost anywhere for any age.

How Not To Go Insane During Summer

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.


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.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

Week One of Being A Freshie Again

August rolls around, and school starts again...

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.
