I am thrilled that Gossip Girl is back (so great last night). I am thrilled that I can watch The Hills online. I am thrilled about all the culinary drama in both Top Chef and Hell's Kitchen. But the show that is thrilling me the most right now is MTV's The Paper, a quasi-documentary of a high school newspaper staff.

And, personally, I can't help but relate to poor Alex, the managing editor who lost the head honcho position to crazy Amanda. I, too, was managing editor in high school, and I was absolutely crushed when I didn't get EIC.
A puddle of tears in a rainstorm.
I winced as Alex winced when he read the list of new editors. Daggers.
I highly recommend this show if you had anything at all to do with your high school newspaper. Or yearbook. Or any high school club really. The Paper is totally bringing back memories for me, and the kids are real kids, which is refreshing. I can't wait to see how the semester unfolds.
