lorelai gilmore appreciation week: favorite scene ∟lorelai’s graduation ♥ She’s graduating Thursday, and there’s going to be a ceremony and I think it would mean a lot to her if you guys were there. It may not seem like it would, but it’s true.
Well, if it would mean so much to her then why didn’t she invite us herself? Because she didn’t think you’d wanna go. And I get that, but I think it’s a mistake. [….] Now, if the thought of going to Mom’s graduation upsets you or makes you unhappy or uncomfortable in any way, then, please, don’t go because this is an important night for Mom and if you go, you should go under the right circumstances.
My ultimate inspiration comes from my best friend, the dazzling woman from whom I received my name and my life’s blood, Lorelai Gilmore. My mother never gave me any idea that I couldn’t do whatever I wanted to do or be whomever I wanted to be. She filled our house with love and fun and books and music, unflagging in her efforts to give me role models from Jane Austen to Eudora Welty to Patti Smith. As she guided me through these incredible eighteen years, I don’t know if she ever realized that the person I most wanted to be was her.
