I tend to want to try and be like Lorelai; especially as I grow older. However, I do have a lot of Rory in me and this is why I initially related so strongly to the show when I started watching it.
Rory reads. In the early years she doesn’t really know how to dress. My favorite thing about her is that she worries. I love the scene when they’re shopping for school supplies and she knows the exact number of highlighters she needs. We all can’t be “manic pixie dream girls “running around on some crazy adventure. Some people like to stay at home and think about highlighters and maybe that isn’t as adventurous; but look where she ended up with some planning. So thank you Amy Sherman Palladino for showing a character that worries and frets and plans and works and is awesome. Have you noticed this about Rory?
