5 Reasons "The Amanda Show" Was Your Favorite

Ah, the 90's... The 90's was the best time of my life (even if I only remember a few years!). This is when some of our favorite memories take place: butterfly hair clips, choker necklaces, and the Spice Girls! What a time to be alive! But let's face it- kids in the 90's grew up with all the best stuff, including television shows! From "All That," to "Rocko's Modern Life," to "Kenan and Kel," 90's kids had it all! But we all know that everyone's guilty pleasure was none other than "The Amanda Show." Maybe it was Tony Pajamas, maybe it was Penelope Taynt. All we know is, Dan Schneider struck gold with this one!


It was silly, and you were a kid. - If there's one thing this sh ow was, it's silly! It was so over dramatic, but that's what made it funny. Even as I got older, there was never a time that I didn't laugh when Courtney (played by Amanda Bynes) yelled "MAH-HAH." And at that, there wasn't a single episode that I didn't quote (I still do, to this day!). The only thing better than Crazy Courtney was when Lula Mae hit Eenis in the face with a bowling pin during the Hillbilly Moment skit!


Even though you've never experienced any of the scenarios on the show, it was somehow relateable. - Okay, so you never skipped class and filmed a webshow in the bathroom. And you never made popcorn in your pants. And you never got beat up by old ladies or cheerleaders. But somehow, this show was still the most relateable thing on television! (It must be because we're all Amber, the most popular girl in The Girls' Room)


You also like eggs. - So not all of us get to be like Debby (good thing, huh!?), but her famous words resonate with each of us. Sometimes when you love something as much as Debby does, you've just got to let the world know how you feel.


Drake Bell was (and might still be!) your very first boy crush. - You know him. You love him. But do you ever wonder where it all began? Where your celebrity crush first sprouted? I'll give you a hint: It was on "The Amanda Show." Whether he was Tony Pajamas, Kyle Rostensan (Totally Kyle!), or just playing himself, Drake Bell was a huge part of that show. But we didn't just like him for his looks- we loved him for his humor and his originality!


The Dancing Lobsters. - Okay, so Judge Trudy might not have been your favorite character. (I know personally, I didn't care for her because she was too "adult.") However, if I remember correctly, she had some pretty awesome friends. Her cases might not have always turned out the way you thought they would, but there was always one thing you could be sure of- "Case closed! Bring out the dancing lobsters!"


If these weren't the reasons you loved The Amanda Show, I don't know what was! Hopefully this helped you relive some of your best childhood memories and.. Oh, what's that? Something about reruns? Hmm, we hope so too! #AmandaPlease

The 10 Stages Of A 2:30 P.M. Kickoff, As Told By Alabama Students

But we still say Roll MF Tide!

We all have a love-hate relationship with a 2:30 p.m. kickoff at Bryant Denny Stadium, especially when it's 94 degrees.

1. Immediate sadness

What do you mean I have to wake up at 9 a.m. to get ready?

2. Bracing yourself for the worst

media.giphy.com

It's a marathon not a sprint ladies and gentleman.

3. Accepting the game is going to happen

media.giphy.com

Rain or shine we are all in that student section screaming our heads off.

4. Trying to wear the least amount clothes possible without being naked on the Quad

media.giphy.com

Is it me or does it get 10 times more hot the minute you walk on to the quad?

5. Shedding a tear when you walk out your front door once you feel the heat and humidity on your skin

media.giphy.com

Is it fall yet?

6. Drowning your sorrows inside a Red Solo cup at 11:30 a.m. at a fraternity tailgate

media.giphy.com

Maybe I'll forget about the humidity if I start frat hopping now.

7. Getting in line to go through security realizing it'll take an hour to actually get inside Bryant Denny

media.giphy.com

More security is great and all but remember the heat index in Alabama? Yeah, it's not easy being smushed like sardines before even getting into Bryant Denny.

8. Feeling the sweat roll down every part of your body

media.giphy.com

Oh yeah I am working on my tan and all but what is the point of showering before kick off?

9. Attempting to cheer on the Tide, but being whacked in the head with a shaker by the girl behind you. 

media.giphy.com

Shakers are tradition, but do we have to spin it around in a full 360 every two seconds? I have a migraine from just thinking about it.

10. Leaving a quarter into the game because Alabama is kicking ass and you're about to have a heat stroke.

I'll watch the rest in air conditioning thank you very much!

We may not love the 2:30 kickoffs but Roll Tide!

I Made Emma Chamberlain's Mediocre Vegan Cookies, And They're Pretty Incredible

Emma and her vegan cookies have made their way into my heart, and are here to stay.

One day, I went down the black hole that is 'YouTube at 3 am' and discovered my favorite social media influencer of all time: Emma Chamberlain. I started binge watching her videos every night for about a week, where I came across her "Cooking With Emma" series. I decided that I wanted to give her vegan antics a go for myself.

I've never cooked or baked anything with the intention of it being vegan, so not only is that new territory for me, but I've never even eaten a vegan cookie. The only reason I'm doing this is because Emma did, and she is aesthetic goals.

To start the journey of vegan baking, I took to Pinterest, just like Emma, and found this recipe to use. Although the video that inspired all of this used a gluten free recipe, I opted for only vegan, because I'm allergic to most of the ingredients that make things gluten-free.


In true Emma style, I used a whisk to combine the wet ingredients together, making sure to use her special technique.


Then, I did the same thing with the dry ingredients.


After that, I dumped everything together and combined all of the ingredients.


Once they were combined, I chopped up a vegan chocolate bar, because Emma and I like chocolate chunk cookies, not chocolate chip, there's a difference.


Now that everything is combined, I made balls of dough and stuck it on a pan, and baked them while I binged more Emma, because what else would I be doing in my spare time?



The recipe said to make the balls a lot smaller, but we aren't perfect, so I made them gigantic. In my head, I thought the worst thing that could happen was it turn into one big cookie, but that's a whole other video you need to watch.

I took them out of the oven, and they were brown on the top, but still a little doughy. At this point I was tired of waiting and eager to eat them, so I disappointingly set them aside to cool, which only lasted a minute or so before I snagged one up to try.



The taste was definitely one I've never associated with cookies, and came to the conclusion that if I decided to go vegan, it would be doable with these cookies and Emma Chamberlain by my side.



Emma inspired me to get out of my comfort zone, which is a reoccurring theme throughout her channel, and I'm happy to be apart of it. She taught me that even if mediocre cookies is all you have, eat them with pride because you made them yourself.
