Grey’s Anatomy Quotes That Never Get Old

If we’ve learned anything after watching 16 full seasons of Grey’s Anatomy,  it’s that the surgeons at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital have a way with words. Whether you’re in the midst of heartbreak or in need of a pep talk, take a look at these quotes that touch on love, loss, friendship, and the stress of everyday life. (And if you’re a true fan, challenge yourself by figuring out which episode each quote is from … before binge-watching the series for the hundredth time to confirm your answers.)

Cristina Yang

Don’t let what he wants eclipse what you need. He’s very dreamy, but he’s not the sun. You are.

Meredith Grey

I love you, in a really really big, pretend to like your taste in music, let you eat the last piece of cheesecake, hold a radio over my head outside your window, unfortunate way that makes me hate you, love you. So pick me, choose me, love me.

Amelia Shepherd

And if you can’t do it, if you aren’t willing to keep looking for light in the darkest of places without stopping, even when it seems impossible, you will never succeed.

Cristina Yang

Oh screw beautiful! I’m brilliant! If you want to appease me, compliment my brain.

Derek Shepherd

You were like coming up for fresh air. It’s like I was drowning and you saved me.

Owen Hunt

The only time I don’t feel like a ghost is when you look at me, because when you look at me, you see me. You see me. This is me.

Meredith Grey

There’s an end to every storm. Once all the trees have been uprooted. Once all the houses have been ripped apart. The wind will hush, the clouds will part, the rain will stop, the sky will clear in an instant. But only then, in those quiet moments after the storm, do we learn who was strong enough to survive it.

Richard Webber

It’s good to be scared. It means you still have something to lose.

Meredith Grey

As human beings, sometimes it’s better to stay in the dark, because in the dark there may be fear, but there is also hope.

Cristina Yang

You are my person. You will always be my person.

Alex Karev

It 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.

Callie Torres

Please, don’t chase me anymore, unless you’re ready to catch me.

Meredith Grey

Change … we don’t like it, we fear it. But we can’t stop it from coming. We either adapt to change, or we get left behind. It hurts to grow. Anybody who tells you it doesn’t, is lying. But here’s the truth: Sometimes, the more things change, the more they stay the same. And sometimes, oh, sometimes, change is good. Sometimes, change is … everything

Derek Shepherd

Breakthroughs don’t happen because of the medicine. Real breakthroughs happen because someone is scared to death to stop trying.

Meredith Grey

Not all wounds are superficial. Most wounds run deeper than we can imagine. You can’t see them with the naked eye. And then, there are the wounds that take us by surprise. The trick with any kind of wound or disease, is to dig down and find the real source of the injury. And once you’ve found it … try like hell to heal that sucker.

Sex Facts That You Need To Know

I know I haven’t had a sex blog in a while and I didn’t want any of you getting dry out there so here we go.

Did you know that the clitoris is the only bodily organ that exists solely for sexual pleasure? And blue balls isn’t just a term made up by horny (and disgruntled) teenage boys? It’s actually a real problem!

Fact: The world’s largest recorded penis belongs to 41-year-old New Yorker Jonah Falcon, whose appendage measures 9.5 inches flaccid and 13.5 inches erect.

Fact: The impulse to ejaculate comes from the spinal cord; no brain is needed.

Fact: The average male > orgasm lasts six seconds; the average female orgasm lasts twenty seconds.

Fact: The left testicle usually hangs lower than the right for right-handed men. The opposite is true for lefties.

Fact: One out of every six Americans aged 14 to 49 has a genital herpes HSV-2 infection.

Fact: After fingers and vibrators, candles are the phallic objects used most often by female masturbators. Unlit ones, hopefully.

Fact: The most common cause of penile rupture is vigorous masturbation. If that happens, you’re doing it wrong.

Fact: When two people kiss, they exchange between 10 million and 1 billion bacteria.

Fact: The average vagina is three to four inches long but can expand by 200 percent when sexually aroused. It’s an optimistic organ.

Fact: Despite what men claim, only 15 percent have a penis longer than seven inches. Only 3 percent have a penis more than eight inches long.

Fact: Orgasms can lower a woman’s risk of heart disease, stroke, breast cancer, and depression.

Covid Grey’s Anatomy

Okay as you all know I absolutely love Grey’s Anatomy but there is something about this covid version that I just don’t like, I watched an interview that said it was supposed to still be an escape from the real world like it used to be but it doesn’t seem to be doing that for me.

This season of Grey’s is making me even more sad for what’s going on in the world, and maybe that was the point of the whole thing to make people think more about how crazy it is that we can’t go anywhere and the relationships in Grey’s this season are intense everyone is either fighting or getting stronger.

Deluca dying killed me I was crying for the whole episode, mainly because he was at the beach with Mer and all it reminded me of was then she drowned and her mom died and she knew before she even woke up her mom was gone so now that this has happened with Deluca it just keeps me thinking about older episodes.

Lets talk about Mer on the beach, I love that they have gone that direction with bringing her to Derek and George but she is still alive enough to hear when people come to visit her.

There are a lot of things that this season is bringing us that is kind of an escape but most of it is simply just depressing, I kind of hate this covid version of Grey’s but there are a lot of things I am okay with.

Scholastic Book Fair

…but for adults

I’d imagine that the adult scholastic book fair would possibly offer a wide range of different categories of books, magazines, planners, and adult coloring books like the ones with the swear words. As well as tiny do dad’s similar to the chocolate bar calculator, drum stick pencils, and slap bracelet rulers but more like a small dehumidifier, google homes, and maybe small DIY kits.

The book categories:

• Romance novels

• Pornographic magazines

• Pre-mentioned adult coloring books

• All the Harry Potters of course

• Planners

• Writing prompt books

• Anime items

• Political genre

• And many more

I do believe that an adult scholastic book fair would be amazing, do it in the same style as well like it would be a pop-up shop in your local library or even better a pop-up at your nearest Barnes and Nobel.

In truest scholastic book fair fashion all the proceeds would go to something good, but have I put that much thought into this, no.

Anyway I will always be mentally at the scholastic book fair and I will not rest until I get to go to another one.

Drive Thru Covid Testing

There are many things that I did not expect when taking my covid test like:

  • You become your own doctor, they give you your test kit and you perform your own test.

  • Touching your own brain (it feels like) with an extra long q-tip is the most unsatisfying thing you will ever go through.

  • Why in the world do they need to know your race and ethnicity in order to put a q-tip up your freaking nose.

  • You break your q-tip in half and put it in the tube that contains something that looks like a light cranberry juice.

Honestly I understand that they don’t want to come near you incase you are infected or whatever but how are we to know how to do the swabbing correctly if we are not trained professionals. All I’m saying is that the whole system was a little misguided even though I did receive a youtube link from my test site on what steps to take while going through the drive thru process.

Top 10 Best Grey’s Anatomy

Don’t get me wrong there are so many amazing characters in this show so narrowing it down to my top 10 is a hard task but here I go.

10. Dr. Preston Burke

greys-anatomys-pictures favorite characters ever
All Photos: Courtesy of ABC

I know what a lot of people would say, I know he really hurt Cristina and everything he did with the Harper Avery without her name was not okay, but he I think he really came back and made it up to her when he gave her the opportunity of a lifetime and that honestly made him look so much better in my eyes.

9. Richard Webber

greys-anatomys-pictures favorite characters ever

I thought Richard would be higher on the list but as I think about it Richard was a big asshole that had a handful of good moments but I do believe that were he never to be on the show it would lack a very important role model for the younger characters to look up to as well as his own personal demons he struggled with added a certain depth to the storyline.

8. Maggie Pierce

greys-anatomys-pictures favorite characters ever

Maggie came in at just the right time in the show, Lexi was gone and we needed something new for Meredith to go through that wasn’t life threatening for a change but, I do like Maggie as a character she’s young, she’s smart and she brings a lot to the table.

7. Jackson Avery

greys-anatomys-pictures favorite characters ever

Jackson is a very pretty face I think he may be one of my favorite male characters on the show, his initial relationship really was my favorite it was truly sad when it ended.

6. Jo Wilson

greys-anatomys-pictures favorite characters ever

Jo is one bad ass girl power type of girl I love how strong she is and how she makes women feel all around love her but kind of wish she would have asked for help with her husband a lot sooner.

5. Arizona Robbins

greys-anatomys-pictures favorite characters ever

All I have to say is that I thoroughly enjoyed happy pre-plane crash Arizona, after the crash when she was mean to Callie and then cheated on her that was not her finest hour but when she starts working under Herman is when I really start to respect her the most.

4. Callie Torres

greys-anatomys-pictures favorite characters ever

Callie is by far the funniest character with the shittiest love life cheated on by both spouses and still kept her humor but honestly I really wish all the drama between Callie and Arizona never would have happened I would have loved for them to remain happy and remain together.

3. April Kepner

greys-anatomys-pictures favorite characters ever

I am not going to lie but I hated April when she first showed up but all she went through really changed her into the kind of person that I look and and just think “wow what an amazing person” even when she joined the Army I didn’t doubt for a second that she didn’t need to be there.

2. Lexie Grey

greys-anatomys-pictures favorite characters ever

Lexi oh man she is number 2 on the list mainly because I needed more time with her, her love story with Mark needed to be explored more and she was gone way too quickly she was played flawlessly and her character progression though the time she was there was beyond outstanding.

1. Owen Hunt

greys-anatomys-pictures favorite characters ever

I love Owen he’s a soft caring and stern simply put he is an all around well rounded character, Owen and Cristina was honestly a missed connection but I really couldn’t imagine an Owen Hunt not wanting children as well as I couldn’t really imagine Cristina wanting children but Owen Hunt 100% best Grey’s Character!

Grey’s Anatomy: My Favorite Show of all Time!

Grey’s Anatomy is one of my favorite shows of all time. Although I had watched many of the episodes when I would hang out with my sister, I enjoyed starting from the beginning.

The show starts it’s first season introducing five interns at the hospital and follows their journey as they move up the ranks in the hospital. As the interns grow as people, and surgeons, they move up in the hospital and eventually some of them eventually become world-class surgeons. The show takes its audience through a whirlwind of emotions including love, grief, anger, suspense, and sadness. The show is a perfect balance of drama and suspense, as the patients in the hospital fight hard to stay alive. Each episode focuses on a few medical cases. Often times they leave watchers with tears in their eyes as they watch patients battle their own bodies. The surgeons fight their hardest to save each patient and each case allows them to grow into better surgeons. Each episode focuses on a certain problem and ends with the narrator of that episode (always one of the characters) sharing the overall moral of the story. This allows viewers to have a new outlook on life and often left me appreciating what I have.

The show is currently on it’s seventeenth season and is still captivating audiences all over. It took me a couple months to finish the seasons on that are on Netflix, so do not take on this task if you will give up easily. It’s no show for a rookie “binge watcher”. Watching the show from beginning to end will allow you to become very connected to the characters in their lives. I often found myself acting as if I knew them myself.

Grey’s Anatomy is a good show to watch because it is popular and many people have seen it. You are bound to have many friends who have also fallen in love with the show and will talk with you for hours on end sharing their likes and dislikes and honestly there could be some disagreements that you could talk about for a couple more hours.

The show is definitely one of my all-time favorite television dramas and I would highly recommend it to anyone– boys and girls alike. I give this show five stars and am currently watching it over again, because it is just that good.

Grey’s anatomy is a wild ride let me tell you, But woah, re-watching these seasons gave me a whole lots of feelings, reminded me on some seriously questionable storylines and reminded me of my most emotional television deaths. Let’s not forgot it made me realise how annoying half the cast can be, but I’ve still cried for hours when the character was cut out the show.

Things I Just Do Not Understand

There are many things in life that are just unexplainable to me, people can try to explain these things to me but I’m not mentally ever going to be able to wrap my head around these couple things.

How people can hack things

It is probably some advanced computer software but my brain thinks it is just people sitting at computers just using peoples street names or their animals names. I am unable to access my Facebook account without changing my password every single time.

Boxers in pants

How the hell is anyone comfortable with baggy type shorts under lets say skinny jeans, don’t they bunch up it seems like too much fabric. I’ve worn shorts under sweatpants before and trust me when.

How NASCAR drivers don’t cry while driving

I can’t even drive in the snow without wanting to burst into tears, like how can you remain calm while going 200 MPH around a track like if you want to die, just say that.

Bluetooth

How do you select an object with your phone or whatever you may be using and it connects to that device and that device only for however long you decide to use it like it blows my mind that this exists. Like we literally have devices like Alexa and google homes that can add items to a shopping list on your phone just for asking.

Netflix originals

How can Netflix afford to make million dollar movies for a dying streaming service that only costs $8 a month.

Oh and Electrons…

I failed science class

Is Minecraft Making a Comeback?

Everyone’s favorite blocky game from 2009 is suddenly making a resurgence, but not many returning players understand why.

When I first created a Minecraft account of my own, I was in my awkward middle school stage playing the mobile game with my cousin. Ten years later, I am a young adult booting up the same video game on Xbox as well as the same mobile app. For anyone who is not aware, Minecraft is making a significant comeback, as verified by trends and statistics.

According to Google Trends, online searches for Minecraft peaked in 2012 and 2013. They have been on a steady decline since then — until 2021. This month, Google searches for the game boosted to 76 percent of their all-time high. It surpassed even Fortnite, arguably the most popular game in the world in the past year

But what happened to resurrect an old favorite?

Well, it might have never died at all. While there is an influx of returning players, Minecraft has always had a steady player base. Mojang, Minecraft’s creator, cited a monthly player base of 91 million in 2019. The game’s claim to fame is validated by its whopping 176 million copies sold as of May 2020, sturdily placing it in the slot for the second-highest selling game ever. The first? Tetris.

The number of players never truly diminished, allowing Minecraft’s dominance to sail under the radar. But various factors are revitalizing attention.

The family-friendly survival sandbox is a safe bet for content creators on video platforms. Minecraft was the king of YouTube in its heyday, so it is no surprise that it is reclaiming its crown. Advertisers are more keen to sponsor videos of a pixelated character building a dirt hut than they are to endorse a gory M-rated shooter. Increased chances of monetization on platforms such as Twitch and YouTube means higher video output, which means more viewers and more players. Especially at a time when politicians blame violence on video games — an argument proven to have no justification — advertisers are cautious.

Another explanation is, of course, nostalgia. Like me, there are millions of people who played in middle school who are now in college or trying to make it on their own. We can temporarily forget our responsibilities and the pressures of adulthood by visiting our favorite childhood game. I was curious as to whether the game lived up to the expectations of my sentimental memories, so I hopped onto the game that i had never deleted on my phone and it has changed for the better for sure.

Even in my twenties, a game I played as a kid is still fun. Continual updates throughout the years sparked new interest. What became stale years ago is suddenly fresh again. Whether the hype lasts or starts to fade, I plan to indulge in the nostalgia Minecraft provides.
