7 Lessons We Can All Learn From Meredith Grey
Canal Sony

Meredith Grey has been through so much, but she still keeps her head held high. These are 7 lessons that we can learn from Meredith.

1. Be Strong no matter what life brings your way.

Meredith was in a plane crash and watched her sister die. She also watched her husband bleed out from gun shot wound by a patient's lunatic husband. Her mom died literally, but let's be honest Meredith's mom was almost always dead to Meredith. Ellis constantly put her daughter down and told Meredith that she was not good enough or special enough. Meredith lived through the death of her husband and through Cristina's moving to another country. She always held her head up high and kept being the great doctor that she is. Mer teaches us that no matter what happens in life, we have to stay strong.

2. Everyone has a dark and twisty side; therefore, embrace it.

We all have those moments where we are not happy and bright. We all have days where we do not want to get out of bed and we do not want to face the world. The only difference? Meredith is dark and twisty more often than not, but she always embraces it. Meredith shows us that even in our roughest days, we need to embrace it.

3. There is more than one "person" out there for all of us.

Meredith's first person was Cristina Yang. They were so incredibly close and through all of their fights they always made up. However, Meredith received a huge heartbreak when Cristina was offered a position in Switzerland. After Cristina left, Meredith's person became Alex Karev. Even when friendships or relationships do not work out for us, we always need to remember that there is more than one person out there for all of us.

4. Work hard for what you want.

Meredith wanted Derek Sheppard more than anyone else. She worked incredibly hard to be with him even through his rough stages. Meredith continuously works hard to better her career and obviously for the best surgeries. Even when she has bad days, she works through them. Meredith never stops working towards what she wants and she never lets anyone get in the way of what she wants. Mer teaches us that if we want something, we need to work for it.

5. Dance it out.

Everyone is aware or Meredith's and Cristina's famous dances. Anytime that they are sad or upset or just need a laugh, they dance it out. Meredith made Pierce and Amelia dance it out when Pierce was upset about the death of her mother. Meredith teaches us that no matter what life brings our way the only right answer is to dance it out.

6.Be your own "person."

As I said before, we all have multiple people out there for us. It is possible that one of those people stares right back at us in the mirror. Meredith loses her husband. She loses the man that she has loved for so long, but she does not stop living. She breaks down for a little while, but she stands right back up. Meredith teaches us that even when life knocks you down and you feel like you have no one, be your own person.

7. Be vulnerable.

I think the most famous Meredith Grey quote is "Pick me. Choose me. Love me." How many people can actually go up to the person that they want to be with and tell them something vulnerable like that? It is extremely difficult, but Mer does it. She lays her cards out on the table and that is something to be admired. Mer teaches us that it is okay to be vulernable because sometimes you have to be.

Meredith is dark and twisty and not always the best person in the world, but throughout her life on the TV she has taught us a few valuable lessons.

How Not To Go Insane During Summer

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.


I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but still...it is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

Week One of Being A Freshie Again

August rolls around, and school starts again...

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.

The Life Of Leaving Home

Home away from homelessness.

Chris Barbalis

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.
