Everyone knows Grey's Anatomy for being overdramatic and essentially a newer version of General Hospital. There are crazy love affairs and more deaths than I can count, but that is what makes the show so addictive. From the death of Denny Duquette to the plane crash episode to the end of McDreamy, Grey's Anatomy has given us 15 amazing so far, so here are the best of the worst moments.

1. Denny's heart failing

The only thing worse than Denny dying was when he came back for Izzy and informed her that she had cancer. I mean come on how much sadder can it get?

2. Burke leaves Christina at the altar


Christina, who never shows emotion, cries hysterically and rips herself out of her dress. This kind of response from Christina is enough to bring any audience to tears.

3. Meredith realizes the John Doe is George

None of us were expecting this. We thought George was alive and well and this ripped us all to shreds.

4. Lexie's death

Her talking to Mark about the future they are going to have, sobbing while talking about their kids; this was the worst. I ugly cried for the entire episode.

5. Christina says goodbye to Meredith

Okay so this is not that sad, but it's pretty sad. Meredith and Christina saying goodbye for the last time was a bit of a tear-jerker. They had been together since day one; they were each other's person.

6. Callie and Arizona get into a car accident

They really had to put both of them in that situation. Seriously, Shonda Rhimes?

7. Amelia realizes she has a brain tumor

Nothing is sadder than realizing the last few months of your life have been a lie because you have not been yourself.

8. Jackson and April lose their baby

A dead baby. This is just taking it to new extremes.

9. Meredith explains Derek's death to her kids

How do you tell children that their father will never come home. Cue the uncontrollable sobbing.

10. Jackson pulls a child from a burning bus

April panicking that Jackson almost died. Jackson almost dying. This messed me up.

11. Meredith almost drowning

She just gives up. Derek saves her but she was going to die. Shonda, what are you trying to do to us?

12. The doctors can only choose one patient to save

Two patients. Stuck on a pole through their abdomens. Only one of them can be saved. AND THEY MAKE THE DOCTORS CHOOSE.

13. Christina's ectopic pregnancy

Once again, Christina crying is enough to make anyone cry.

14. Meredith confessing her love to Derek

Let's be honest, we all felt what Meredith was feeling at some point.

15. Derek's death

No words. This was the worst death in TV history.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
