I have really tried to not take sides and to try as hard as I can (unsuccessfully usually) to really embrace the "character" that is Amanda. Sadly, this ends now. The girl is a strange mix of power hungry, fake smile, passive aggressive, crap that once again makes me thankful that none of us have to repeat high school.
I watched Monday's episode in awe from beginning to end. Amanda speaking to her dog about the homecoming traditions was my first clue that the girl was going to take me over the edge. I commend Mrs. Weiss for her attempt to keep the peace in the newspaper room but shifting the seating arrangement is not and will not make Amanda a better editor. When Amanda found the picture from the year before (before she became a power hungry pain) and put it on the board for all to see I truly believed that she thought this would make everyone like her again. Yeah that did not work. Adam responded but the others looked and walked away.
As for the homecoming, Adam won for Homecoming King (surprising yes but he has that personality that everyone loves or loves to hate) and everyone went to the dance. Before the dance Alex, Adam and Dan (where was Trevor) all went and had a spa day. Hilarious to watch and very male empowering (yeah right).
The only part of the show that my heart went out to Amanda was when her date texted her the night before the dance to tell her he could not go. Amanda went anyway (good for her) but she seemed (again editing) to follow Alex around for a good portion of the night.
Amanda needs to stop feeling and acting as if she is better than everyone else. She comes across as the girl who smiles to your face but behind that smile she is condescending and over powering. She also needs to get over Alex and move on. Amanda in general tries way too hard and this has a tendency to put people off (it did me).
The show has become a fascination for me to see what these kids will do next and who I can most relate too. Which one were you (or are you now) based on the different personalities on the show? I have decided I am a Gianna (smart ass but fun) or maybe a Dan (another smart ass but goofy too). By the way Gianna I would not have been in the photo either (wait were you?)
