Ugh. The day we've been dreading for months is finally here.
Tonight, while mascara tears run down our faces, fans will have to say goodbye to Cristina Yang, one of the most beloved characters on Grey's Anatomy. For the past ten years, we have fallen head over heels for Sandra Oh's unique and relentlessly driven on-screen persona, and now, we don't want to imagine at world where Meredith's (Ellen Pompeo) person is not by her side.
However, we refuse to be sad. After all, Cristina is the one who taught us that we should just pop a bottle of wine, dance it out, and eventually everything will work itself out. So with that in mind, we're going to take this time to focus on all the times we fell in love with Dr. Cristina Yang.
(Side-Note: Although our article lists 17 Cristina-loving reasons, please be advised that there are indeed so many more reasons as to why we adore her. We just didn't want to look like the overly obsessive TV stalkers that we actually are. Plus, we got distracted by a Grey's Anatomy marathon. Priorities.)
We fell in love with Dr. Christina Yang…
1. When she told the truth about men:
2. When she taught us how to deal with the stresses of work:
3. When she revealed that her priorities are always on point:

5. When she taught us that confidence is key:
6. When Mama took her eyebrows:
7. When she fully unleashed her anger:
8. When she made us realize how important it is to have friends:
9. When she taught us it's what's on the inside that really matters:
10. When she embraced her competitive side:
11. When she publically proclaimed her love of validation and sweets:
12. When she showed us that alcohol makes everything so much more fun:
13. When she verbalized the daily struggles we all go through:
14. When she showed how to properly display our emotions:
15. When she came up with the best combination on earth:
16. When she taught us that it's okay to need your person:
17. And most importantly, when she showed us that everything will be better after you dance it out:
We love and will miss you, Cristina!
