One of my favorite old TV shows is Gilmore Girls. Something all my friends can agree on is the fact that I have an undeniable resemblance to the greatest TV mom of all time, Lorelai Gilmore.
I used to say I didn’t agree, but once I re-bingewatched the series to prepare for the upcoming reunion and heard her explanation for keeping old recorded VHS tapes just to watch the old commercials, I couldn’t deny that Lorelai and I are one in the same.
Although anyone would be thrilled to be exactly like Lorelai, there are certain criteria that must be met. There are 12 ways you can tell if you and Lorelai Gilmore are the same person.
- You want things your way.
You try to be agreeable but you’re just not great at “rolling with the punches.” You like a plan and you like it to be your plan.
- You like a little healthy anger.
Although you’re not one to seek revenge, you are one to get caught up in someone else’s passionate anger towards situations.
- You’re not a morning person.
Despite the fact that work life exists and therefore you have to get out of bed, you hate mornings. You are a half-functioning zombie until 10am.
- Sarcasm is your automatic default.
You just don’t know how to have normal conversations. You have a strong tendency to resort to sarcastic remarks and you simply can’t control it.
- You’re not the domestic type.
You may get bursts of motivation where you’ll actually get things done but most of the time, you can think of something better to do.
- You tend to ramble.
Whether you’re nervous, unsure of what to say, or just having an awkward day, you babble like an idiot on a regular basis.
- Caffeine is your drug of choice.
You cannot physically function without at least one cup of a coffee a day. You supplement that with several cups of tea that you refuse to accept as “real” caffeine.
- You give terrible advice but people will like it anyway.
Except in extreme cases, your advice is all based on feelings rather than logic. So yes, you’ll will advise your friends to build a fort and hide from their issues because it’ll be fun.
- You eat like the apocalypse is coming.
Eating is one of your favorite pastimes. People are always shocked to see just how much food you can put away without your body ever showing signs that it happened. You would rather people just appreciate your abilities and keep their judgements to themselves but you’re not going to change either way.
- You’re not great at coping.
You sincerely hate all things dramatic and difficult in life. Eventually problems come back to haunt you and you’re forced to figure them out. But the worst kind of people are the ones that keep bringing up things you just don’t want to deal with.
- You’re not necessarily romantic.
You’ve always looked at love from a point of view where you just wanted to be with someone and be content. You just want to “do life” with someone. You’ve never been the type of person to go for big gestures or “cry out of happiness” over every little moment.
- You say pretty inappropriate things that most people wouldn’t even think.
You have zero explanation for the things you come up with and have absolutely no discernment for which things you should and should not say out loud.
Lorelai sounds a bit crazy and by now you’ve realized that you do too, but she’s actually pretty badass. She got pregnant as a teen and still managed to build her dream career while raising her daughter a single mom. She’s never afraid to be loud and proud about what she wants in life and if you’re anything like her, you’ve hit the personality jackpot.
