Reasons Why I Relate to Cristina Yang More as I Get Older

To say Grey’s Anatomy is my favourite show is a bit of an understatement. I used to take these quizzes that determined ‘Which Grey’s Character Are You?’ and for a while I would pride myself in being a Lexie or an Izzie, but more and more as I get older the person I realize I am and truly want to become is the one and only cardio god, Dr. Cristina Yang.

Cristina Yang is me whenever I leave my house …

Or attempt anything remotely hard…

Or check my grades on MyLS

She’s not a touchy-feely kind of gal

And she’s so driven with her career that being emotionally available for anything else is sometimes a problem

She’s kind of dead inside, or dark and twisty if you prefer, but always sarcastic and hilarious AF

But Cristina does have a heart and relies on her friends for support …

Especially her BFF

Speaking of BFF’s, she’s tired of hearing about her friend’s relationship problems

And knows how to check them when they are being ridiculous over boys

Proving that she will forever be an inspiration and the queen of pick me ups

Time and

Time again

Shonda, if we could have one wish, please, please, please bring Cristina back! Grey’s is missing her edge and Meredith needs her person.
