More Reasons Why the Gilmores Rock

When I first started trying to be a Gilmore Girl it was all about the stuff. I had to get a shearling lined jacket. I had to build a snowman that looks like Bjork. Now as I’m older I’ve come to appreciate the show for what it is: a series of brilliant women who don’t define themselves by anyone else’s standards.

They don’t get sidetracked by recessions. (Well the show ended before then but I’m just guessing they wouldn’t). They don’t pay attention to things that should be impossible like getting into Ivy League schools or starting their own inns. They decide what they want and they go after it full force. More than any other inspiration as a freelance writer for the past six years, the Gilmores are what has kept me going. I live in a world where companies constantly go out of business and rules change and the sky is always falling. However, I learned from Lorelai that if even if you fail at something; it can still be the best two years of your life. Have the Gilmores inspired you?

    The Gilmores have definitely inspired me! I often draw my aspirations from theirs and aim high because of them. They’ve also influenced my speech as I always say things that they would. I often quote the show but nobody seems to notice because I’m the only one of my friends who has seen the entire season about three times. My life has been Gilmored!

    I know this sounds a bit over the top but I truly believe the Gilmore Girls have changed my life πŸ™‚ When i was going through a tough time, i took inspiration from rory and lorelai and thought about how they would handle the situation. I would watch the shows over and over (still do) to cheer myself up. (got all the 7 dvds) I consider myself a lot like Rory.. she has definitely made me feel more confident and happy with life. πŸ™‚ me and my mum have a similar relationship to rory and lorelai and i quote gilmore girls all the time!!! especially lorelai…copper boom! πŸ˜€
