The Time Christina Yang Helped Me Make Life Decisions

Last January I toyed around with the idea of going back to school. Six months ago, I quit my job in event management to pursue that dream. But ended up on the couch everyday eating popcorn and binge watching Greys Anatomy. Oops.

But I learned something during the grueling hours of watching 11 seasons of Greys: Christina Yang is a badass. And I want to be a badass.

She is who she is without apology. She demands what she wants and won’t settle for anything less. Mostly, she’s strong and empowered and believes in herself.

I want to be strong and empowered. And I want to do great things.

Fast forward to now: I’ve got it more together now. I’ve been thinking a lot about life’s what ifs. I researched school and what it would take to go back. Turns out, about 3 years and a lot of $$. But it’s what I really want to do. I don’t want to look back in three years and think that I could’ve gone to school during that time. In three years I’ll be done and that time is going to pass anyways. I keeping thinking of the fitness quote ‘a year ago you’ll wish you have started today…’ Well I wish I had started in May, but I can’t change the past.

I try to live my life without regrets and while I could regret taking off six months to figure out what it is that I wanted to do, I won’t regret that time because it brought me back here.

I’ll be getting another Bachelors degree. This time in Dietetics and Nutrition.

I’m starting classes on 11/23.

9 pre recs. ‘Bout 16 core classes. 8 months of clinical rotations. 1 state board exam.

I’m freaking out. But could not be more thankful and excited for this opportunity. ❤️
