Home For The Holidays As Told By 'Grey's Anatomy'

The cast of 'Grey’s Anatomy' illustrates what it’s like going home for the holidays.

Home For The Holidays As Told By 'Grey's Anatomy'

Going home for the holidays is great because you’re reunited with friends, family, pets, and (most importantly) your comfy bed. However, it can also be quite dreadful when your family pounds you with questions concerning your college life. The "Grey's Anatomy" cast understands your holiday pains and excitements.

You come home to be greeted by your parents, pets, and your oh-so-comfy bed. After hours of late studying and taking finals, the mattress feels like it was made specifically for you. You're probably going to look like this almost all of break.

You’re reunited with your hometown friends, and it’s like you're back in the good old days.

However, you’re still bound to run into those people from your past that you’d rather forget like your exes or high school enemies.

Or maybe you see that old crush from high school and feelings start coming back. Ugh.

You see family and get swarmed with hugs from everyone, including the family members you aren't extremely fond of or haven't seen in awhile, so it's just a little awkward.

You get bombarded by questions from your family about your love life, school life…and just life in general.

They may go something like, “Any new boyfriend/girlfriend we should know about?” and if you’re painfully single, your face will look something like:

Then, there’s the “What are you planning on doing with your major?” question that is bound to be asked by a few relatives this holiday season as well.

You have to put up with those weird family members that everyone secretly wishes wouldn’t come to family gatherings. You just sit there and wonder how you can possibly be related to them in the first place.

Maybe you have that one relative who just doesn’t shut up about how perfect their life is or how perfect their son/daughter is.

You feel forced to laugh at all the corny jokes said at the dinner table this holiday season.

Of course, your family is going to “need your help” and stick you with some task that you probably hate.

But hey, at least you can finally stuff your face with delicious, home-cooked meals.

And you don’t have to do homework and you get some time off from responsibilities during the holidays.

Even though family can get annoying, you know they do it out of love and that’s all that really matters. They are always going to be your people, so thumbs up to that.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
