Many young stars tend to skip out on schooling in pursuit of their careers, but many young stars often end up in bad places.
But it looks like Amanda Bynes is trying to find her way into a healthy and happy spot once again, and schooling might just be the answer!
We already told you Amanda had left her Malibu rehab facility where she was receiving psych care, and now she's at home with her family. But she isn't just chilling and sipping hot cocoa while she's there. She's also thinking about her future!
And she wants a future in fashion! Amanda's mother's attorney, Tamar Arminak, revealed:
What a wonderful way to start December!
While it had been up in the air whether or not Amanda Bynes would be spending the holidays with her family, it looks like she will get the chance to ring in the New Year and her fresh start at home!
