The release date has been announced for when the Gilmore Girls are arriving back in town, and we couldn’t be happier.
It’s actually happening – Gilmore Girls is coming back. Almost 10 years after season 7 ended, we are still reeling from a lack of Lorelai and Rory on our screens. Luckily for us, the TV gods have answered our prayers, and are bringing the Gilmore gang back to us. Premiering on Netflix on 25th November, “Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life” will have four 90-minute episodes, covering spring, summer, autumn and winter. It’s basically a dream come true.
Lorelai and Rory taught us so much, but it’s all the little lessons they gave that made an impact on our lives. In honour of our favourite mother-daughter duo officially hitting our screens again, here are 7 of the little (but important) lessons that the Gilmore Girls taught us.
Craving coffee is a basic human reaction to times of hardship
Gilmore Girls has made our early morning 3-shot soya latte cravings totally acceptable. Just like Lorelai, we need our coffee practically on an IV to make sure that we are fully-functioning humans – and that’s totally okay.
Donald Trump was, and always will be, an idiot
It’s almost like they foresaw America’s current politic situation. If Sookie can’t stand a world where Donald Trump does anything at all (let alone become the President…) then that’s the presidential election decided. Thanks Sookie for speaking some sense.
You can’t avoid Mondays – so just suck it up
It’s agreed worldwide that Monday mornings suck. No one likes getting out of bed at 7am, especially when only the office desk is calling your name. But it’s cool, because if the Gilmore Girls can get through all those painful Mondays, so can we.
We’re all zombies in the morning
No matter how hard we try, the early morning struggle is so real. Just like Rory, nothing excites us before 11am, despite our efforts.
It’s totally fine to know EXACTLY what you want
In fact, it’s better to know exactly what you want so you can make sure that everyone knows how to please you. Flexibility is overrated; go after what you want, when you want it.
Mother-Daughter relationships are so special
There’s nothing better than when your mum is also your best friend, and Lorelai and Rory were the ultimate duo. When your mum is your best friend, you feel like you can do anything with your super-awesome side-kick – mums, we salute you!
Just do what you’ve got to do
Sometimes you’ve just got to take a leap and go for it, even if it may not result in the what you want. Lorelai and Rory taught us not to be scared to go after what we really want, and for that, we thank them.
