I'm pretty sure that you're all aware of the fact that Gilmore Girls is now on Netflix, unless of course you've been living under a rock. Before Netflix, I remember the summers where I would wait patiently for 2 o'clock to roll around so I could watch that day's episode and live vicariously through Lorelai and Rory. They were fun, hilarious, and they lived their lives the way they pleased. When I grew up, they were who I wanted to be.
When Gilmore Girls first appeared on Netflix, I binged and I am still trying to balance school and watching Gilmore Girls. Why do I love and care about them so much? Because I grew up and my dream came true; I am (or like to think I am) as close to being Rory and Lorelai as possible. Watching the show now is completely strange because of the fact that I developed a similar humor to the Gilmore's and because my dream job was Rory's dream job. This show had an obvious influence on me despite the fact that I hadn't seen an episode since middle school.
Despite the obvious effect that they had on me, I think that they can teach young girls wonderful things about life. This is what they taught me and what I hope to pass on to all the young women in my life:
Start binge watching now. You will not regret it.
