5 Times Grey's Anatomy Broke My Heart

The medical drama that always continues to leave us with tears.

5 Times Grey's Anatomy Broke My Heart

1. When Denny Died


Although Denny was not a main character of the saga and did not appear on many episodes, myself and many other fans fell in love with him. His fast love for Izzy was infectious, and his unexpected death was truly heart breaking. Following his proposal to Izzy, fans thought he would survive his heart failure and marry her. This was the first time fans were crying ugly tears, after he survived his heart transplant and ended up rejecting the organ and passing away.

2. When We Found Out John Doe Was George


George O'Malley was the nice one of his bunch, the kind hearted, lovable, Irish boy. Fans were disappointed when they found out he would no longer be a surgical resident at Seattle Grace Hospital, but ultimately found happiness knowing that he was serving his country. But then the tears really started when a man with an unrecognizable face took his fingers and wrote out "007" into Meredith's hands.

3. The Plane Crash


How could this not make it onto the list. It all began with the surgeons boarding a plane to help another hospital with a life-saving surgery of conjoined twins, when all of a sudden the worst thing possible happened. The plane crash resulted in the heart breaking deaths of Mark Sloan and Lexi Grey. Just when we thought we couldn't handle this anymore, Arizona lost her leg and Derek's hand was so badly injured that no one knew if he would be able to operate again.

4. When Arizona Cheated On Callie


The couple that all fans thought could make it through anything, fell apart during an intense rain storm that left the hospital with serious damage. Although we might have thought Arizona and Callie would not make it together after Arizona lost her leg to the plane crash, we were sure that if they could make it through that then they could make it through anything. Ultimately, Arizona ended up cheating with a visiting doctor came to town. After their relationship ended (which eventually started again), fans were very disappointed to see everyone's favorite couple come to an abrupt end.

5. Derek's Death


Almost all fans thought this day would come; Shonda Rhimes loves to make her fans become extremely attached to characters, and take them away just when we thought they would never leave the show. In Derek's case, I never thought it would take this long for him to be taken off the show since he had survived many traumas. A fan favorite character, left everyone in absolute depression to see Meredith's heart broken into a million pieces after her husband and father of her three children had died. It's a beautiful day to save lives.

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.
