Why I Aspire To Be Lorelai Gilmore

She is a phenomenal mother. 

She gave Rory her ability to speak at inhuman speeds and the ability to process obscene amounts of junk food. She's always supportive and there to share her wisdom.

She's the best friend you could ask for. 

Whether you need someone to tell it to you straight, or someone to help you get the kid they were babysitting un-stuck from under the bed, she's got your back.

Her train of thought is fascinating. 

Don't bother trying to connect the dots when she speaks. Just try your best to follow along or you might miss a gem like this.  

She will never cease to make you laugh. 

She has a wide variety of faces to pull, comebacks and jokes to tell, and can hold her own with slapstick physical humor too. 

She really thinks about the important things.

She's always up on all the hot-button topics, and isn't afraid to have a deep, meaningful conversation with you. 

She makes a caffeine addiction look cool. 

Lorelai is accepting of the fact that without her daily vat of coffee she would not be a functioning part of society.

She knows what she wants in life.

And she's not afraid to go after it. 

She's a wonderful listener.

She can usually find something to relate to, and if not, she's good at pretending. 

She's a fabulous entrepreneur/business woman.

After raising Rory, taking business classes, and getting the applicable experience, she and her best friend successfully started their own Inn. 

Her taste in film and television is on point. 

This is a woman with all of Cop Rock on tape, and has seen the Sophia Dying Scene in The Godfather Part 3 more times than any other human being, ever, except maybe Rory. 

Her music tastes are incredible as well. 

She's always ready to drop her favorite lyrics, or pick up and go see The Bangles in New York. 

She always has the best advice.

Be it on matters of the heart or whether or not you should eat Poptarts for dinner, her advice is always solid. 

She knows how to handle anything life throws at her. 

Being a Gilmore has prepared Lorelai for just about any curve ball life could throw her. 

Her pop culture references are always perfect. 

Pop culture references are one of Lorelei's specialties, so don't be embarrassed if you can't catch every single one of them.

She always has the perfect comeback. 

When it comes to comebacks, Lorelai has the timing down perfectly, and always gets the last word. Her ability to spit out comebacks exceeds the hopes of anyone who has ever walked away and then realized the perfect thing to say. 

Her vocabulary is excellent. 

She is able to use her vocabulary to spice up her every day conversations.

She gives the best compliments.

If you're ever having a down day, don't doubt that Lorelai will cheer you up by giving you a well thought out, creative compliment. 

She knows her strengths.

And she is not afraid to use them to her advantage. 

And she knows her faults.

Though it may be difficult for her to admit from time to time, she is aware of her faults and tries her best to overcome them.

I'm the child of a Marine Veteran. He may have been out of the service by the time I was born, but the Patriotic Pride he lived by has been my family's life line. I grew up with the American Flag hanging in my front porch. My dad has the "Proud to be a Marine" license plate in the front of his car. And red, white, and blue is a completely acceptable way to decorate your living room. But it doesn't end with just that. You need to know why we celebrate freedom.

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.

Independence Day is almost upon us, which means that for most Americans, it'll be time to bust out the lawn chairs and grills, gather around family and friends, and praise our history through patriotic garb and grand fireworks displays. It's the one day of the year where everyone forgets their political biases or historic inaccuracies, at least for a while, to look back on the hazy, illustrious history of the United States.

But, while we celebrate what people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry did for this country, they are not the only ones who embodied the very virtues that our nation loves to advocate for. This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
