Let’s face it: Gilmore Girls is one of the most iconic shows to come out of the 2000s. As well as the original seven spectacular series, we were blessed with the brief Netflix revival, A Year in the Life, back in 2016 and our lives have never been the same.
Rory and Lorelai Gilmore were basically every young woman’s role model back when the show aired – actually, they kinda still are for a lot of us. They were a badass mother-and-daughter duo surrounded by equally badass friends and family. What’s not to love? Oh, and they dated some cute guys too. Not that it matters, of course: the show was about the girls, not the men who happened to be in their lives.

Watching Rory grow up and Lorelai continue to learn about adulthood provided us with a whole load of important life lessons throughout Gilmore Girls’ run. We were taught about self-respect, confidence, and the acceptability of eating pizza for almost every meal. Here are just a few of the crucial life tips we took from this amazing show.
