2. You printed out photos of Jess, Logan, and yes, maybe even Dean, to tape inside your school locker.

3. Before the joys of Netflix, you watched your Gilmore Girls DVD's so many times that the boxes aren't in their best condition.

And God forbid you got a scratch on the DVD with your favorite episode.

6. You strongly considered buying way too many Gilmore Girls-related items on eBay.

Do I need Milo Ventimiglia's "OPPOSITE SEX" high school year book photo? I have no idea what that means, and am unsure why it's being sold, but sure. Why not.

10. You read all the Gilmore-ism booklets that came with the DVDs — until they stopped making them after Season 4 for NO GOOD REASON.

13. You've been wondering for the past 11 years about Jason "Digger" Stiles. Didn’t he figure out that his apartment was NOT on fire? Where did he go?

14. You screamed at your DVR when it cut off the last 10 seconds of the Season 5 finale. Yeah, remember that? WE ALL DO.

I AM OVERLY CAUTIOUS ABOUT ALL OF MY RECORDINGS NOW, OK?????

16. You watched Season 7 after Daniel and Amy Sherman-Palladino were let go, and wondered if every single episode was meant to happen. IS THIS REAL?

17. You were even happier than you already were when President Obama was elected and re-elected, because it meant good things for Rory.

19. You sobbed on the floor of your bathroom after the series finale aired, because you were so heartbroken.

You also sobbed even harder, because you knew the cast WAS NOT AWARE the show was ending when they filmed the last episode — and that made things even worse.
