Alex Karev Is Leaving 'Grey's Anatomy' After 15 Years And I Might Need One Of Epi To Survive This

Pour one out for your favorite "Grey's" characters that are now gone.

Alex Karev Is Leaving 'Grey's Anatomy' After 15 Years And I Might Need One Of Epi To Survive This

This just in: Justin Chambers is BREAKING the hearts of "Grey's Anatomy" fans everywhere by announcing his departure from the medical drama after 15 seasons.

"Grey's" first aired in 2005 and is about to begin season 16 in the middle of January. Justin Chambers plays Alex Karev on the show and is one of the only O.G cast members left.

Alex Karev is Meredith's best friend, married to Jo, and has had one of the GREATEST character development timelines on the entire show.

In a recent interview with Deadline, Chambers said,

"There's no good time to say goodbye to a show and a character that's defined so much of my life for the past 15 years."

He goes on in the interview to talk about how he has wanted to branch out in his career choices and now that he is getting older and has a family it was time to solidify that decision.

We don't know if Alex Karev will say goodbye to us in season 16 or if season 15 was his final appearance on the show. All we can hope is that his storyline doesn't end with an untimely death, but a career change and distance from Grey Sloan Memorial.

Now that this news has broken, we have so many questions. What's going to happen with Jo? How will Meredith handle not having Alex around? My mind is going crazy with theories and questions.

With the departure of Alex Karev, we are left with only a few O.G characters including Meredith, Dr. Weber, and Dr. Bailey. Since Alex won't be around anymore, we can only PRAY for some intense drama to make up for the loss of one of our favorite characters.

"Grey's Anatomy" season 16 premieres on Thursday, Jan. 23 on ABC.

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.
