Alex Karev Quotes To Live By

Most girls have made it a ritual to watch "Grey's Anatomy" on Thursday nights. After 12 seasons of shedding tears--through the loss of Derek-- we keep rooting for Meredith. She, Alex, Bailey and Richard Webber are now the only originals left. At first we all hated Alex but now the tides have turned and we just can’t seem to get enough of him. Behind that tough guy image that we saw so early on the show, there have been some wise words spoken.

1. Every time something has scared you.

“Doesn’t matter how tough we are. Trauma always leaves a scar. It follows us home. It changes our lives. Trauma messes everybody up but maybe that’s the point. All the pain and the fear and the crap, maybe going through all that is what keeps us moving forward. It’s what pushes us. Maybe we have to get a little messed up before we can step up”

2. Every time you started something and wanted to quit.

“You just don’t give up. It’s lame. You’re not a quitter. That’s not who you are”

3. For those tough times.

“You can have the worst crap in the world happen to you and you can get it over it. All you gotta do is survive”

4. To teach us all to have some self confidence.

“The point is it doesn’t matter what the rest of us think. At the end of the day all that matters is what you think”

5. For all those times you were questioning what to do.

“It’s your life, nobody can make you do anything you don’t want to do”

6. All those times you sat their worrying about your ex-significant other.

“I’m done worrying about her, ‘cause she sure as hell ain’t worried about me”

7. Any time you are forced to choose sides and have no clue which side to take.

“You show up and you suit up and you play. Because its your freaking team”

There are still many countless quotes that we have all learned by memory that didn’t make the list. Who knows maybe one of you will start your own!

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
