In honor of the fact that today is the arrival of Gilmore Girls on Netflix, I thought I would reflect on the 20 lessons I learned from this amazing show. I have watched Gilmore Girls from the very beginning. I distinctly remember watching the first episode and asking myself, “Wait what channel is this? What time? Okay got it!” Every day after I sat down in my family room at 5pm to watch the latest episode. This show was so much more than a story of teenage pregnancy and single motherhood. It was a cast filled with strong, witty, intelligent, and relatable characters who we all secretly wished we could be. I was so inspired by Lorelai’s independence and her constant strength and sense of self. I also loved the quick jokes and endless references that Lorelai and Rory made, hoping that one day I too could be that witty. I could honestly go on and on about why I love this show, but the wonderfulness that is Gilmore Girls is better experienced than explained.
