McGrey’s Anatomy

I know. Two Grey’s posts in a row. But this one is from the awesome blog “A Cluster of Ideas” and it gives a look back into what makes up one of my favorite shows and why so many fans have fallen in love with these characters. Also, I just can’t stop thinking about the changes that are flying across my TV screen each Thursday night on ABC. These episodes are some of the most emotional ones yet and for die-hard fans of the show, each flashback and recollection is a reminder of how much the characters and their lives have changed (and are changing) over the course of the past eleven years. With the departure of Derek Shepherd I was hesitant to believe that this show would ever be the same. And I know that it won’t but I also believe that every memorable moment from previous shows will gather more meaning and more significance. We’ll remember and move on because “the carousel never stops turning.”

A Cluster of Ideas

Grey’s Anatomy consists of all of the following medical, drama, and romance. And it is by far one of my favorite shows of all. This show is something I can watch over and over and never get bored (I’ve watched some episodes at least 5 times). This post WILL contain SPOILERS. Little note, this might end up with me talking about Meredith and Derek cause they are AMAZING.

How [Not] To Save A Life

“But sometimes you might make the wrong decisions, comrades, and then where should we be?”

George Orwell, Animal Farm

Dead. Apparently, according to the traumatizing episode of Grey’s Anatomy that aired this past Thursday. And no, not “apparently dead”, the character was really dead as in “not-coming-back-in-future-episodes-unless-it’s-a-dream-or-flashback” kind of dead. And to be honest, I still haven’t recovered from that episode or stopped thinking about what it means to me. The waves of emotion are relentless and although I’ve seen every single episode of this show and I know it’s a fictitious world, it’s still hard to wrap my mind around everything that happened so quickly yet with so much grace.

Hope For The Best, Prepare For The Worst

When the future beckons, what do you do? Do you rush forward and grab whatever it offers you or slow down and choose what you think you want or need? As the months pass by, “the year of choices” as I like to call it, has arrived and it’s time to make decisions about our future and how we want it to take place. The chance of failure is increasing with each passing day and my anxiety is mounting. When do we push ourselves and when do we take a breath? What if we make mistakes that can’t be fixed? Simply put, I have to choose next year’s classes and I have no idea what to do.

Needs and Wants. Is there really a difference?

Cali wants to come inside.

Cali wants to come inside.

Everyone has things they want and things they need but the line dividing those two categories is easily blurred. It’s difficult to define each category and nearly impossible to come up with an absolute definition of either. Needed things could be explained by the necessary physical requirements to sustain life like water, food, and shelter but we also need to take into consideration each person’s unique emotional needs. Wanted things are generally explained by the urge to obtain something that you don’t already have.
