Ever wondered how Sandra Oh relieves stress and keeps balance in her life? Check out this interview she did with Mindful Magazine!
What inspired you to start practicing meditation?
I think, like many people, I had been thinking “I should meditate” for years. But, no surprise, shaming myself into it wasn’t doing the trick. I was looking to make a change in my life and my dear friend who had just had a baby said meditation had really helped her during her pregnancy and delivery. Hearing that really moved me.
How do you find it benefits you?
It has helped me through some very difficult times in my life and increased the joy of living. It helps me deal with stress—and there’s plenty of that to go around. It helps me to focus, and it helps me to have creative breakthroughs. Doing meditation practice has also challenged me to become a better person, to broaden my mind and remain curious.
It’s a slow process, though, a gradual, organic process. It’s not like you sit for 20 minutes and suddenly your life is peaceful. But you can find ways to deal with life better as you learn how to sit and just be there on the cushion with your mind and your surroundings.

Time has released an interesting article on the reality of abortion featuring some of Shonda Rhimes’ thoughts and ideas on the matter. Check it out.
As we all know, Sandra Oh is soon to finish up her 10 year stint on GA. Wondering what she’ll be doing afterwards? I think it’s safe to say that we’ll see her in other roles, such as this one!
All this time, Cristina Yang had a 20-something daughter?!
Okay, not really. Still, after 10 seasons on Grey’s Anatomy, it’s still a little jarring to see Sandra Oh in street clothes — and even more jarring to learn that soon, she’ll be playing someone’s mom. (Meredith, of course, probably encouraged her to take the part. Because Meredith and Cristina are real, right?)
In an episode of Betas that premieres on Amazon today, Oh guests as the mother of badass Mikki (Maya Erskine) — a “street-wise digi-chick,” whose tendency toward rebellion can be traced partially to her flaky family, according to the site’s official description. That’s where Oh comes in.
I’m excited to see the extent is which she pushes herself with the roles she will take on! I think I’ll check this out!

Yo! Gabbler family!
The impending new year is upon us and with it come the usual resolutions and wishes. Check out what some of TVLine‘s readers desires to see in 2014!
TVLine asked you, our faithful readers, to share your TV wish lists with us, and there’s one thing you really want the programming gods to bring you in 2014…
Christa: “I wish that Meredith and Cristina [on Grey's Anatomy] would stop fighting and be each other’s person again, especially since Cristina’s character is leaving the show this year.
Me too. But as weird as this might sound, I’ve been enjoying their incessant bickering. In my honest opinion, this has been a solid, inevitable storyline given where they started in their relationship and where they’ve now found themselves. I do believe (and truly hope) they’ll come out better for it in the end.

CROWEN RECAP – 10 x 12 Get Up, Stand Up
This is the first episode in a long time that I actually think I don’t mind writing the recap. It is no secret that I have been terribly bitter by the whole Crowen storyline, especially in Sandra’s last season. The episode was mainly about April and Matthew’s wedding but there was so much other things going on at the same time. Owen and Cristina interacted mainly on a professional basis but there was a significant moment later on in the episode.
The episode opens with Cristina at a press conference for her Nathan Glazier surgery. The flashes from the cameras are blinding and she looks very uncomfortable. On either side of her are Shane and Owen. (Kinda weird since she has slept with both of them. Though I do wonder why Shane is there because he is a second year resident and the assisting surgeon was actually Alex). Meredith is also there at the press conference.
Owen introduces her to the press. She thanks him and immediately starts to fumble. She does not seem as strong and confident as she usually is. In fact, she sounds extremely cautious. We will find out later why she is acting this way. Cristina says the procedure is so relatively untried that the associated risks are unusually high but that doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t try. Meredith seems to be looking a bit resentful.
Cristina closes her folder and Owen asks if she is okay. She says yes and continues in the same halting voice. She says that fortunately, the patient is responding well for now. His vitals are stable and the hope is that they will continue. “And if it does, I am cautiously optimistic that we can call the procedure a success,” she says.
Shane butts in and grabs the microphone, saying that home run is a better word. “Dr Yang hit a home run. Thanks to her, baby Nathan is thriving this morning.” Meredith has a quizzical look on her face, while Owen and Cristina gave Shane the death glare. Clapping ensues from the press corps. As usual, this is a case of Shane overstepping his boundaries. He doesn’t seem to remember that he is just a second year resident and therefore, should have said nothing. His cockiness is bound to get him into trouble, as we saw later in the episode.
After the conference, we see Owen, Cristina and Shane coming out of the room. Shane is particularly ebullient as he says that it went pretty well. Cristina is still steamed from him butting in at the press conference and immediately, turns on him. She tells him he is off her service and he has got to be over his hours. She tells him to go home and take a day off.
Shane is flabbergasted, saying “What?” Cristina answers him that he doesn’t know to keep his mouth shut. Shane argues that the press needed to hear that it was extraordinary. Cristina cuts him off and says that she is not comfortable speaking for her, especially about this case.
Owen defends Shane, saying that he said what needed to be said. He tells Cristina that she was not comfortable at all and she was tanking in there. In the meantime, Shane is tapping on his tablet, trying to prove that he is not over his hours. He says that he is only at 68 hours for the week. We find out later that that he has been fudging on his hours, so he can continue to work.
Owen leaves, telling her that JAMA wants an interview in Conference Room C and it should be short. Cristina then tells Ross that she is worried about him and that he has been going too fast lately. She says that she is not the only one who has noticed it. Shane is ready to find out who has been talking smack about him. He asks if he has screwed up. Cristina tells him that his work has been great. Shane touches her arm and says that he thinks what he knows this is and that she needs to work off some tension. (Get your arm off her, Shane. Don’t you dare touch her). She shrugs off his arm and tells him that they were not going to do that anymore. (And this is the point that I fall on my knees and give praise. Hallelujah! No more scenes of Shane and Cristina in the on-call room).Read More
