Coffee Addiction As Told By Gilmore Girls

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at BC chapter.

College kids are known for their love of coffee. It starts out as a once a week quick pick-me-up, and suddenly we’re thrown into an endless stream of caffeine. But maybe, it’s in fact that we’ve been conditioned to want—no, need— this beverage… Maybe it’s not our fault. Maybe, in fact, it’s actually Rory and Lorelai’s fault we can’t go through a day without it:


You need coffee because you just woke up.

You need it to stay awake at 3pm.


You need it to stay awake until 3am.


You’re having a horrible day and need a jolt.

You’re having a good day and need a reward.


People say you’re addicted.


You know that can quit whenever you want, though. You just don’t want to.

It’s not like you’re denying your addiction…

You’re just not you without your coffee.

You just like the way it tastes… And no one can fault you for that.

Thanks, Rory and Lorelai, for introducing us to one of the greatest blessings life has to offer.
