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

9 Eligible Princes You Need To Know About Now That Prince Harry Is Off The Market

You too could have a Meghan Markle fairytale

Prince Harry's royal wedding is officially over and there won't be another British royal wedding for quite some time now, as Prince George is way too young to start thinking about that. Fortunately, there are plenty of other countries with plenty of other princes that are still eligible bachelors at the moment. Lucky for you, I did my research and compiled a list of all the eligible princes you need to know about know that Prince Harry has tied the knot with Meghan Markle.

1. Prince Louis of Luxembourg (31)

Prince Louis is the third son of the Grand Duke Henri and Duchess Maria Theresa of Luxembourg. He has recently become a bachelor again after his separation with his wife of 10 years, Princess Tessy.

Fun Fact: He graduated from Richmond, The American International University of London with a BA in Communications. He can also speak Luxembourgish (the fact that's even a language is fun fact by itself), French, German, and English fluently.

2. Prince Sebastien of Luxembourg (26)

Prince Sebastien is the youngest child of the Grand Duke Henri and Duchess Maria Theresa of Luxembourg, so if you marry him, you'll probably never actually be queen because he's pretty far removed from the throne. However, he's relatively young and single, so best of luck.

Fun Fact: For some bizarre reason, this prince actually went to college in Ohio. He played rugby and graduated from Franciscan University of Steubenville in 2015. Now, he is back in his home country and is an officer in the Luxembourg Army.

3. Prince Phillipos of Greece and Denmark (34)

You read that correctly, Prince Phillipos is the prince of not one, but two countries. He is the youngest son of King Constantine and Queen Anne Marie of Greece and Denmark. Unfortunately, Greece abolished their monarchy, so he's a prince in name only there.

Fun Fact: Like Prince Sebastien, Prince Phillipos also went to college in the United States. He earned his B.A. in foreign relations from Georgetown University in 2008. Fortunately, for us American girls, he is actually still living in the US and he works in New York City as an analyst at Ortelius Capital.

4. Prince Albert of Thurn and Taxis (34)

Ever heard of Thurn and Taxis? No? Me neither. Anyways, Prince Albert is from the House of Thurn and Taxis, which is essentially a very old German aristocratic family. He is the son of Prince Johannes XI of Thurn and Taxis and Countess Gloria of Schonburg Glauchau. His family is well known for their breweries and castles, so unless you're gluten-free, you can't really complain.

Fun Fact: He's not just a prince. He's also a racecar driver and 10 years ago he was ranked 11th on Forbes Magazine's List of The 20 Hottest Young Royals.

5. Prince Mateen of Brunei (26)

Prince Mateen is basically like all the guys you already know, except he's royalty. He's the prince of Brunei, which is a small country on the island of Borneo, south of Vietnam. He is one of the five sons of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, and he also has seven sisters. Maybe that's a little different than the guys you know, but one thing he takes very seriously, just like most frat guys, is his Instagram.

Fun Fact: Mateen enjoys playing polo, flying in his private plane, cuddling cute wild animals, and keeping up his Insta game with 890k followers. You can follow him @tmski.

6. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum of Dubai (35)

Sheikh Hamdan also has a killer Instagram with 6.3 million followers. Anyways, Sheikh Hamdan is the billionaire crown prince of Dubai and the second son of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who is the prime minister of the United Arab Emirates and essentially the king of Dubai (Emir). He's actually next in line for the throne because his older brother died in 2015.

Fun Fact: Hamdan's hobbies include skydiving, zip lining, and diving, just to name a few, so if you're an adrenaline junkie, Sheikh Hamdan is the prince for you.

7. Prince Hussein of Jordan (23)

Prince Hussain is the son of the extremely beautiful, Queen Rania and Abdullah II of Jordan and next in line for the Jordanian throne. At 23, he's already a second lieutenant in the Jordanian Armed Forces and he was the youngest person ever to chair a UN Security Council Meeting


Fun Fact: Like Prince Phillippos, Prince Hussain also graduated from Georgetown University in Washington D.C.. Also, like Prince Mateen and Prince Hamdan, he's Insta famous with 1.3 million followers and you can follow him @alhusseinjo.

8. Prince Constantine-Alexios of Greece and Denmark (19)

Like Prince Phillipos, Prince Constantine-Alexios also has two countries. Lucky for us though, he is also living in the US right now attending Georgetown University in Washington D.C. (like pretty much every other prince, amirite?) He is the oldest son of Crown Princess Marie-Chantal and Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece.

Fun Fact: He's Prince William's godson, so that's pretty neat. However, if that wasn't cool enough, you might like to know that this Greek/Danish prince was actually born in New York. Oh yeah, you can also follow him on Instagram @alexiosgreece where he has 88.7k followers.

9. Prince Joachim of Belgium (26)

Prince Joachim of Belgium, Archduke of Austria-Este is the third child of Lorenz, Archduke of Austria-Este and Princess Astrid of Belgium. Although he bears the title, "Prince of Belgium," he is also Archduke of Austria-Este, Prince Royal of Hungary and Bohemia, and Prince of Modena. Unfortunately, he'll probably never actually be king in any of these countries as he is ninth in line to the Belgian throne.

Fun Fact: Prince Joachim has degrees in economics, management, and finance, but he decided to join the Nautical School in Brugge after completing college and is currently an officer in the Belgian Navy.

Hope is not lost for all you girls dreaming of finding a Prince Charming that's literally a prince. After reviewing the data, my best advice is to transfer to Georgetown where princes are basically around every corner.

Stop Bashing People For Their music Tastes

Instead of bashing, try listening. Who knows, maybe you'll find a new favorite.

I see it all the time. I see it on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook...every social media platform. I get and understand that everyone has an opinion and has the right to voice it, but can't we do it in a way that doesn't disrespect anyone?

Recently, I've started listening to AS IT IS and Panic! At The Disco more than usual because both bands have been releasing music and have albums coming out very soon.

AS IT IS' new album is called "The Great Depression" and has more of a dark, deeper feel to it than past albums, and Panic! At The Disco's new album, "Pray For The Wicked," has a more overarching theme of religion.

Both of these albums are different than what the artists have released in the past and I have seen people bashing other people for them.

I get it. You're not into Panic! At The Disco or AS IT IS. You may not like their music, you may not be able to get into it for whatever reason or it may simply just not be your style. That's fine. You're allowed to not like the music, but when you bash someone because they like it, that's when it starts to get out of hand.

Bullying someone for their music taste is wrong and immature. You don't know why they like that artist, you don't know what that person is going through and you surely don't know what that artist means to them. They have nothing to do with the music that the artist creates, so why do you feel the need to bully and disrespect someone you don't even know?

Disrespecting someone you don't know brings me to my next point. I've seen people disrespecting the artists themselves which really breaks my heart. You've probably never met said artist nor are you going to, so why are you trash talking them? They're just making music and doing what they love to do - make people happy.

Music is meant to be a tool to bring people together through friendships and shared experiences. I get that all music is not for everyone, of course people are allowed to like and dislike music, but what I'm saying is that we should start being nicer to people whose music taste differs from ours.

We shouldn't make fun of people for it because first of all, that's mean and childish, and nobody deserves to be bullied for anything, and second of all, there are plenty of genres and artists out there for people to like, so if you don't like a certain one, just move on!

I have so many friends who aren't into the bands I listen to. I've tried to get them to listen, but a lot of them like to stick to the ones they've been listening to for years, and that's totally okay!

Instead of bashing someone for their taste in music, how about giving it a listen? It only takes a couple of minutes, and who knows, you may find a favorite song or a favorite artist.
