How Do You Know If You've Found Your McDreamy?
Odyssey

Millions of viewers have been in awe of the relationship that Meredith Grey and Derek Shepherd created throughout the 11 seasons of "Grey's Anatomy" before... well... you know what happened. They somehow took one drunken night at the bar and turned it into the greatest love story of our generation. Through the hardships, countless tears, and Meredith being too afraid to let McDreamy in for several seasons, they managed to create a life together that so many of us dream of having. As you sat and watched their story unfold, sometimes, you couldn't help but wonder if your McDreamy was ever going to make his way to you.

We all go through relationships in our lives— some more valuable than others. There comes a time that you stop communicating, you stop loving, and the fighting consumes your whole relationship. The love you once shared suddenly comes crashing down, and, right before your eyes, it's over. You thought that the time you had together was going to last you a lifetime, but fate just wasn't in your favor. You're then supposed to get back on your feet and find a way to get over the heartache that you're suffering. Time heals you slowly, but surely, and then, it happens. Then, you find him. You find your very own McDreamy. At that very moment, you are not aware that he is going to be such a huge part of your life, but, with time, you will figure it out. So, the real question is, how do you know if you've found your McDreamy?

If you've found him, he's going to have really great hair— I mean, really great. The kind of hair that, when he's 40, will still going to be luscious and full. He's also going to be very intelligent. He's going to strive to be the best he can at what he does and do it with everything he has. He's probably going to have had childhood dreams of wanting to grow up to be a neurosurgeon and won't settle for anything more practical because, hey, he's stubborn as hell. He will have the most beautiful smile you have ever seen and when he looks at you, you may feel the urge to faint. He will love and cherish you, even if you run from his love many times. As you make your way into the future with your McDreamy, he will find the perfect way to propose to you— something extremely personal; he may even do where you both enjoy being the most. He will, from then on out, defend you from those around you, even if you are wrong. He will love you more than his favorite thing, even if that favorite thing of his is ferryboats. Your McDreamy will be the one, and you will know it when you meet him, even if it happens to be from across the bar.

Even though I just described Derek Shepherd in the paragraph above, just know that your McDreamy exists and he is out there. Give him time and think of him often. When he finally makes his way to you, love him unconditionally because all great love stories come to an end one day.

Rest in peace, Dr. Derek Shepherd.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.

32658

When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.

I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.

We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."

Throughout quarantine, something that a lot of us picked up on was working out. With all the free time, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to work on that "dream bod" you've been wanting for years, or to just feel good about yourself.

A common way to stay motivated and keep yourself on-task is to follow fitness influencers on various platforms. For some people, yes, this can be a healthy and helpful way to keep your drive. In other cases, however, this can do more harm than good.
