5 Things That "Grey's Anatomy" Taught Me

Through the emotional roller coasters, Grey's Anatomy taught us all very valuable lessons

5 Things That "Grey's Anatomy" Taught Me

" Grey's Anatomy" is hands-down one of my favorite shows. I watch the new episodes every Thursday and I watch older episodes periodically during the week on Netflix. I laugh, I cry, I melt into a puddle of emotions. "Grey's Anatomy" is not only a great show, it also teaches valuable lessons. Lessons in life, love and friendship that can last forever. Here are just some of the lessons that "Grey's Anatomy" has taught me.

1. When you find your "person", hold on for dear life!

When you find that one person who understands you, who you can relate to on more than one level and who you can proudly call your best friend, Never let them go! Trust me, they will be there when no one else is there. They will be there when you are broken down and need someone to pick up the pieces. They will always be your person.

2. You don't need a man to complete you

Cristina Yang is definitely a smart woman. She also never let a man define who she was. Cristina never had an easy time with men. She was left at the altar and then she was forced to be someone she wasn't. However, Cristina realized that she didn't need a man to complete her. She was great all on her own. All women can take that lesson from her.

3. Everyone makes mistakes

All of the doctors on "Grey's Anatomy" have made mistakes at one time or another. Whether it be a small one, such as falling asleep on the job, or a huge one, like leaving a towel inside of a patient after surgery. Mistakes happen. We're only human. The point is to learn from these mistakes and not make them again.

4. It's okay to be scared

Everyone gets scared. There's nothing wrong with that. Things happen that are out of our control. People die, marriages are broken, countless other things happen, but we have to realize that we shouldn't have to be ashamed of being scared. We can be scared, it's an emotion that everyone has.

5. Losing someone is a part of life

The number of people that have died on "Grey's Anatomy" is ridiculous. Each death is more painful than the last one. I know I cried for hours when George, Lexi, Mark, and Derek died. Dying is a part of life and letting go of the people you love isn't easy, but it's something that happens and it's something you have to do. It's not always pretty, but it is a part of life.

"Grey's Anatomy" may be an emotional roller coaster, but it is also a lesson in itself. These are just some of the many lessons that I have learned from "Grey's Anatomy." If you're looking for a new show to binge-watch, I highly recommend this show.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
