5 Reasons Why Season 14 Should Be Alex Karev's Season

5 Reasons Why Season 14 Should Be Alex Karev's Season

So please, Shonda Rhimes, give Alex Karev a great life that he deserves.

Am I the only one who loves Dr. Karev so much and wishes him the world? "Grey's Anatomy" has always been one of my favorite shows, and I honestly love each and every one of the characters but the one that stands out to me the most is Dr. Karev.

Before we go on, yes, I am talking about the Doctor that always get the short end of the stick and the impossible always seems to happen to him. With season fourteen just premiering, I wish Dr. Karev the world and hope that the creator, Shonda Rhimes, has big things coming for him because you know how she is with killing off main characters.

I would be extremely upset if Dr. Karev was killed off before I got to see him happy because he deserves everything. So here are five reasons why season 14 should be Alex Karev's season.

1. He is a great Pediatric Surgeon and great with kids.

In the beginning of the show, Alex was a resident who really did not seem to care about others and was very self-centered. Soon, Alex found a passion and a greater love for children. Alex became a Pediatric Surgeon and he is the most loving and caring Doctor ever. He is willing to put their needs before his. Who wouldn't wanna go to him if they needed a pediatric doctor?

2. No matter the circumstance, Alex will always be there for you if you are his friend.

Meredith Grey and Dr. Karev have known each other since their resident years. Dr. Yang used to be Meredith's person, but since she left, Dr. Karev has gladly taken over. He is there for her at her most difficult times and at her times of pure happiness. There is no in-between because you can always count on him to catch you when you fall.

3. His passion and love for Jo.

Dr. Karev knows it is no secret that he hurt Jo, but one thing is for sure, he does not give up. Dr. Karev gave Jo space after his fight with Deluca, but he hopes sometime soon she will be able to forgive him for the horrible mistake he had made. He loves Jo to the moon and back, and you can clearly tell.

4. Dr. Karev is a fighter, he is not giving up anytime soon.

Dr. Karev endured an abusive childhood growing up, but along the way, he pushed his through it. He became a better version of himself and one of the best surgeons. Last season (13) Dr. Karev faced a difficult time after his fight with Deluca. He was facing jail time, and he was close to losing his job. Even though all of this was going on, Dr. Karev never lost sight of his future and pushed his way through it.

5. Lastly, Dr. Karev's pep talks and wonderful advice

Dr. Karev had everyone's back and many of them do not have his back. But that is the great thing about Alex, he does not expect anything in return. He probably cares about you more than your best friend does.

I live for the day I get to see Dr. Karev happy because he deserves the world. He might have had a rough start, but trust me, he is only getting started on a journey that I hope will benefit him in every way possible.

So, please, Shonda Rhimes, give Alex Karev a great life that he deserves. Make sure he gets married to the love of his life, has children, lives in a big house and continues to save children as a Pediatric Surgeon.

Sorry Not Sorry, My Parents Paid For My Coachella Trip

No haters are going to bring me down.

With Coachella officially over, lives can go back to normal and we can all relive Beyonce’s performance online for years to come. Or, if you were like me and actually there, you can replay the experience in your mind for the rest of your life, holding dear to the memories of an epic weekend and a cultural experience like no other on the planet.

And I want to be clear about the Beyonce show: it really was that good.

But with any big event beloved by many, there will always be the haters on the other side. The #nochella’s, the haters of all things ‘Chella fashion. And let me just say this, the flower headbands aren’t cultural appropriation, they’re simply items of clothing used to express the stylistic tendency of a fashion-forward event.

Because yes, the music, and sure, the art, but so much of what Coachella is, really, is about the fashion and what you and your friends are wearing. It's supposed to be fun, not political! Anyway, back to the main point of this.

One of the biggest things people love to hate on about Coachella is the fact that many of the attendees have their tickets bought for them by their parents.

Sorry? It’s not my fault that my parents have enough money to buy their daughter and her friends the gift of going to one of the most amazing melting pots of all things weird and beautiful. It’s not my fault about your life, and it’s none of your business about mine.

All my life, I’ve dealt with people commenting on me, mostly liking, but there are always a few that seem upset about the way I live my life.

One time, I was riding my dolphin out in Turks and Cacaos, (“riding” is the act of holding onto their fin as they swim and you sort of glide next to them. It’s a beautiful, transformative experience between human and animal and I really think, when I looked in my dolphin’s eye, that we made a connection that will last forever) and someone I knew threw shade my way for getting to do it.

Don’t make me be the bad guy.

I felt shame for years after my 16th birthday, where my parents got me an Escalade. People at school made fun of me (especially after I drove into a ditch...oops!) and said I didn’t deserve the things I got in life.

I can think of a lot of people who probably don't deserve the things in life that they get, but you don't hear me hating on them (that's why we vote, people). Well, I’m sick of being made to feel guilty about the luxuries I’m given, because they’ve made me who I am, and I love me.

I’m a good person.

I’m not going to let the Coachella haters bring me down anymore. Did my parents buy my ticket and VIP housing? Yes. Am I sorry about that? Absolutely not.

Sorry, not sorry!

11 Artists You'll Enjoy If You Love WALK THE MOON

You can be an album person or a playlist person, but we're all WALK THE MOON people.

Listening strictly to albums has led me down an alternative-indie-pop-rock rabbit hole where I end up listening to the same artist for months. Over the years, I've grown familiar enough with some albums/artists enough to group them according to sounds, so here they are!

All these artists are similar to WALK THE MOON within one standard deviation: some are more mellow, some more fast-paced, some have more electronica, all are equally good. If you’re also an album person or are just looking for new music, check out a few of these artists! “Known For” indicates their most popular tracks, “Best Album” is my personal favorite album, and “Top 3 Tracks” lists three songs I’d recommend anyone to get to know the artist.

1. The Wombats

The Wombats have created music at either end of the alternative rock spectrum; their older albums feature heavier instrumentals, their newer songs leaning more pop with plenty of synths and airy background vocals. Glitterbug has a similar theme to TALKING IS HARD, but their older songs are also worth a listen (side note: "Greek Tragedy" has an amazing, if dark/disturbing, music video).

Known For: Greek Tragedy, Let’s Dance To Joy Division, Tokyo - Vampires and Wolves

Best Album: The Wombats Proudly Present… This Modern Glitch

Top 3 Tracks: Emoticons, Turn, 1996

2. Colony House

Indie-leaning alternative rock, Colony House sounds more traditionally alt-rock, focusing on guitar and catchy drums with minimal electronic additions. “Silhouettes” is similar to “Quesadilla,” only with fewer background instrumentals and thus a cleaner sound.

Known For: Silhouettes

Best Album: Only The Lonely

Top 3 Tracks: You & I, 1234, Where Your Father’s Been

3. Vinyl Theatre

Their 2014 album Electrogram is perfect to dance to, 2017’s Origami is great to walk away from explosions to (while putting on sunglasses), and their latest 2018 single “Feel It All” probably caused the explosion. Their music actually reminds me more of Fall Out Boy’s more recent music - less upbeat, featuring more complex traditional and electronic instrumentals and a more typically “rock” beat. “Lisa Baby” and “Kamikaze” sound closest to Vinyl Theater’s more recent releases.

Known For: Breaking Up My Bones

Best Album: Origami

Top 3 Tracks: Feel It All, New Machines, Gold

4. Autoheart

Autoheart’s vibes remind me most of “One Foot” and “Work This Body” with its upbeat pop instrumentals and Hozier-like vocals.

Known For: Moscow

Best Album: Punch

Top 3 Tracks: Moscow, My Hallelujah, Anniversary

5. Magic Man

If you liked the airy nature of WALK THE MOON’s “Aquaman” and “Portugal,” Magic Man is perfect for you. Magic Man has the perfect combination of a catchy bass line and electronic synths in the background that emulate those two tracks.

Known For: Paris

Best Album: Before the Waves

Top 3 Tracks: Honey, Apollo, Catherine

6. The Griswolds

Very pop, very catchy, with music faster but quite similar to The Cab and The Script, actually. Definitely check out their acoustic covers because their guitar renditions are chill-worthy and absolutely gorgeous (they've done WALK THE MOON's "Anna Sun," Linkin Park's "Numb," and Portugal. the Man's "Feel It Still.") The lead singer’s singing style makes every song so haunting and emotionally raw.

Known For: Beware The Dog, 16 Years, Live This Nightmare

Best Album: Be Impressive

Top 3 Tracks: Rufio, If You Wanna Stay, Live This Nightmare

7. Grizfolk

Many of their songs tend to have similar tempos and have less variety, but if you like that type of song, you’ll probably like their album.

Known For: Bob Marley, In My Arms, Waiting For You

Best Album: Waking Up The Giants

Top 3 Tracks: Troublemaker, Bounty On My Head, The Struggle

8. Nothing But Thieves

Imagine a softer, more soulful, less angsty version of Muse. They definitely fall on the harder side of rock, veering almost into punk territory, but they have plenty of mid-tempo and slow songs for a good balance.

Known For: Trip Switch, Sorry, Amsterdam

Best Album: Broken Machine

Top 3 Tracks: Particles, Drawing Pins, Sorry (acoustic)

9. Rainbow Kitten Surprise

Any RKS song is immediately identifiable; soulful, haunting vocals combined with delicate guitar picking, soft congas, and a simplistic bass lines in the background, they could almost be mistaken for folk music. The lead singer’s voice sounds similar to Sam Smith and/or Hozier. Their songs tend to be more mellow.

Known For: Devil Like Me, Cocaine Jesus

Best Album: RKS

Top 3 Tracks: Seven, Fever Pitch, Goodnight Chicago

10. NoMBe

Similar to Alt-J and BØRNS in the smoothness of his voice, NoMBe emulates “chill indie” with a distinct bass and jazzy snares in the background. His music is darker and slower compared to many of the artists on this list but makes for a very good listen nonetheless.

Known For: Wait, California Girls, Letting In

Best Album: They Might’ve Even Loved Me

Top 3 Tracks: Eden, Milk & Coffee, Bad Girls

11. Moon Taxi

Liked “Up 2 U"? Then you'll love "Red Hot Lights." Enjoyed "We Are The Kids"? You'll probably like "Two High." Moon Taxi follows a similar head-nodding, foot-tapping set of riffs and instrumentals. They’re further on the alternative rock end than pop, but some of their songs are more upbeat.

Known For: Two High, Morocco, All Day All Night

Best Album: Let The Record Play

Top 3 Tracks: Red Hot Lights, Good As Gold, All the Rage
