Rory Gilmore has been aching to be a journalist since she was in high school. Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life offers proof that she has fulfilled that dream, as she now works as a freelance
When Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life premiered, we found out Rory Gilmore was having some trouble finding her next full-time journalism job. If you’ve seen any season of the show, you know that Rory has wanted to be a journalist since she was young and has worked hard to pursue her editorial dreams.
Gilmore Girls is a trove of little life lessons, both humorous and endearing, and I still admire Rory’s character, despite her foibles. Her tenacity to make it through every obstacle encountered and her stern frankness and demand for what she wants is something to be appreciated.
Giphy. When we left Rory, she was going off to work on the Obama campaign trail — an experience any young journalist would’ve killed for. As a fellow journalism student, I couldn’t wait to see
If there’s one incredibly polarizing struggle on the Gilmore Girls revival, it’s Rory Gilmore’s career in journalism.
Ten years have lapsed from when we last saw Rory victorious, graduating from Yale with a journalism job and a newly single status. But Rory at 32 feels more like what Rory at 24 might have been.
Nov 30, 2016 · The only way to be truly inspired by Gilmore Girls is to watch it and want to be Rory, but better. She’s smart and loves to read, sure, but she doesn’t know how to put her nose to the grindstone.
We do hear of Rory writing many times within the show – just because we don’t hear it every five minutes doesn’t mean she doesn’t write a lot. The show focused on other parts of her life as well. I will give you Rory is a bit sensitive, but again I’m sure if I had the ability to question every journalist in the world, Rory’s not the only one.

But no, we hardly saw Rory do anything. Instead we got a really long piece of Rory and Lorelai delivering newspaper. I was hoping that maybe Rory would make some changes or do anything really with the Gazette. I remember when she saved Yale Daily News that time when Paris was editor and how passionate she was doing it. We don’t see that Rory anymore.
And I found myself agreeing with Mitchum Huntzberger: Rory, in the grand tradition of fictional journalists, was actually not great at journalism. But I also really started to notice the depth of the relationships between the women on the show.
In May 2007, my sister and I gathered around the TV for what we thought would be one last trip to Stars Hollow and one last visit with the Gilmores. Now, with the “Gilmore Girls” reboot coming to Netflix on November 25, I can’t contain my excitement. Lorelai, Rory, Luke, and all the rest were extraordinary bookworms, mentioning a whopping 339 books in their first 7 seasons!
