Grey's Anatomy, one of the top medical shows on TV right now, is not only relatable to the everyday lives of the average American adult, but it is also relates to the lives of a first semester college freshman. While watching reruns of Grey's Anatomy, I noticed some of the quotes really spoke to me about how I was feeling as a new freshman at Ball State University. So, I decided it would be fun (and sometimes funny) to write an article about them and how they made me feel. Here's what I came up with...
