In real life, one of my friends was killed in a car accident during our sophomore year.
I think the hardest part about being a teenager is dealing with other teenagers - the criticism and the ridicule, the gossip and rumors.
If I had to give one piece of advice to incoming college freshmen, I'd say always be true to yourself.
Nowadays, I could not care less about making other people like me. I'm a good person, I don't need to do that anymore.
Part of growing up is just taking what you learn from that and moving on and not taking it to heart.
I started working on a line of clothes last year, but right now we're kind of at a standstill.
I think it's so important to keep learning and keep your brain active.
Mostly, nothing's really changed. I'm still the dorky nerd that I always was.
I was in New York and I walked into this pet store and came out with a dog.
My best friend and I love to make fish faces.
I literally finished 7th Heaven, went up to Toronto, and started SAW. So, it was definitely a little mind change.
I was strong enough not to let them get the best of me, but I'm definitely one who has taken what people say to heart and let it eat away at me.
Even though college has been hard, I don't want to give up.
Sure, I have a job now, but the acting business isn't always that solid, and so I wanted something to fall back upon.
For the longest time, I never thought I was intimidating to guys, but I'm kind of finding out that maybe there is some tiny thread of intimidation.
Music is so powerful to me. I had my IPod and headphones, and my sad playlist. I kind of ventured off for just a little bit to get into the scene.
Still, it's tough trying to combine my acting career with my college career.
I was never really obsessed with the whole guy thing to begin with.
Actually, the kids at school don't treat me any differently at all just because I'm on television.
