Why I Aspire To Be Lorelai Gilmore

Because Gilmore Girls is finally coming to Netflix this month, here's a comprehensive list of traits and qualities explaining why I aspire to be Lorelai Gilmore.

29

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.

Disney Plus

Millions of musical-lovers around the world rejoiced when "Hamilton," the hip-hop-mixtape-turned-musical harder to get in to than Studio 54, came to Disney Plus.

For those who had the luxury of being able to watch it in person and rewatch it with us mere mortals on our screens, the experience was almost as gripping as sitting feet from Lin-Manuel Miranda himself. From the stunning sets, graceful choreography, witty dialogue, and hauntingly beautiful singing, the experience was one even my musical-averse family felt moved by.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?

Keto Is All Fun And Games Until You're Undernourished And Almost Pass Out

Keto is just another extension of diet culture that boasts rapid weight loss, but at a steep price.

There has been a Keto diet craze going around in the past couple of years, with many of its followers claiming significant weight loss. With any new, trendy diet claiming miraculous weight-loss, one starts to wonder what exactly is happening behind the curtain. The keto, or ketogenic, diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that claims to help the body shift its fuel source from carbs to fat. In the medical community it has been prescribed to patients with uncontrolled epilepsy to reduce the frequency of seizures, but other than that there is little conclusive evidence to other potential benefits.
