I'll admit it--ever since

Izzie screamed those strange words at George
and Derek emerged all wet and very hot from the water with Meredith
and McSteamy and McDreamy were friends again
and Alex and Addison were undressing each other with their eyes
and Christina realizes she might lose "her person"

I've completely, totally, and utterly had Grey's on the brain. So, who better to offer up a quote today than Meredith Grey.

I've heard that it's possible to grow up - I've just never met anyone who's actually done it. Without parents to defy, we break the rules we make for ourselves. We throw tantrums when things don't go our way, we whisper secrets with our best friends in the dark, we look for comfort where we can find it, and we hope - against all logic, against all experience. Like children, we never give up hope...
-Dr. Meredith Grey, Grey's Anatomy

I feel this way all the time--like I'm just playing house and haven't actually grown up. I feel this way every single time I celebrate a birthday. This year, it was "Am I seriously 27? I can't be 27. I think I might still be a kid." My parents are constantly saying things to me that I find completely ridiculous. Maybe I react this way because I still think I'm a kid and that my every move needs to work towards defying my parents. Will I ever finally just feel like an adult?

I've been thinking along these lines for the past couple of years. Blogged about it.

Oh, I hear you! I plan on making a mini-book with all the Meredith quotes and title it "Grey Matter" - this one goes with yours.

After careful consideration and many sleepless nights, here’s what I've decided. There's no such thing as a grown-up. We move out, we move away from our families. But the basic insecurities, the fears and all the old wounds just grow up with us. Just when you think life has forced you to truly become an adult, your mother says something like that. We get bigger, taller, older. But, for the most part, we're still a bunch of kids, running around the playground, trying desperately to fit in."
