I’m blogging about this because she was basically a part (even just a little tiny bit) of my childhood. I was a big fan, and you can say still am. I used to watch reruns and even marathons (when they did have it on weekends) of The Amanda Show, one of Nickelodeon’s best shows EVER. I also caught a lot of her movies like Lovewrecked, She’s The Man, Sydney White and the most recent one (even though it’s been a little over two years), Easy A. To me, she was instantly (or if not, one) of the most charming and easily funny young ladies in her generation. Not to mention that smile and that laugh.
It took me by surprise to see all these fabrications by the media about her attitude and living conditions. Then it immediately spun way out of control- with her tweets being taken out of context, people had this idea that she’s gone cuckoo or whatever. All this time I was thinking “why can’t people just leave her alone?”, I mean she wasn’t attracting publicity if only for those pictures she posted, people all over twitter make it too big a deal. That’s one of the cons of using social media, people are always all over your business. Then a lot of memes (made by lowlife suckers) have circulated around the net, which I can tell reached her too.
What I’m basically trying to say with this entry is, some people are just living so vicariously through public figures IT HURTS MY EYES to see they have nothing else to do. As for Amanda, I believe that what she’s showing right now can be dealt with accordingly, and change is around the corner. I still love her! I would love to see her bounce back and show us that redemption can be done. I would love to see her in a movie again. Please? Is that too much to ask for?
I love food. I guess it goes the same for everybody right? I seriously haven’t met anyone who doesn’t love to eat out or munch whatever- if you are that person then I would probably influence you to start eating more and discover new places to dine in! These are taken from my phone as I went out with friends and family.
Movie time with Kim: When we watched Iron Man a few weeks back, we ordered the combo that’s usually more expensive than a Tuesday movie. It consists of chicken poppers, poutine and a large drink.
Korean with the family on Mother’s day: We went to Owl Of Minerva for lunch and we thought we were going to be grilling barbeque! They didn’t have those there so we ordered meals- mine was Bibimbap, which is basically mixed rice. I’ve read about it being part of the World’s 50 most delicious foods by CNN Travel!
Frozen yogurts: When me and Grace went to see Peeples, we met up with Kim and Jessie to eat out (yet again)- cause that’s how we do. After which we treated ourselves with frozen yogurt from Yogurty’s! They have a self-serve method in which you come into the store and grab a cup, and you can take it from there. The prices are by-weight, I only paid mine for like $4.40?! I remember that day being cold too, and as we walked to the car we froze ourselves, also while eating what’s left of our froyo cups.
Indian cuisine with Eloisa: Just last week me and my Tribute buddy/friend decided to chill, and she had thought about what kinda food we were gonna eat, she suggested Indian and so we went to Little India in Queen Street West! I was kind of overwhelmed with all the flavors, yet what we ordered weren’t really the hottest of the hottest dishes. Loved the Chicken Biryani and the Butter Chicken! More hang outs to happen with this lady!
*I’m pretty sure this summer is going to be great, I get to go out more and explore new restaurants in the city. You better believe I will take pictures as I go.
