10 Things Angela Chase Could Have Done Since 1994

Hey! Guess what? My first article for Heartless Doll was NOT my last! Who woulda thunk?

"What's amazing is when you can feel your life going somewhere. Like, your life just figured out how to get good. Like, that second."

My life figured out how to get good around the time I first watched My So-Called Life. I missed it when it originally aired on ABC, but I caught the repeats on MTV (you can now watch the entire series on Hulu). I was just an innocent little redhead and it opened my eyes to so many things, not to mention I related to Angela Chase like woah. My dad was a cook. I clashed with my mom. Had a best friend who was a terrible influence and a crush on an unattainable guy (or five).

Like many others, MSCL had me at Crimson Glow. I couldn't wait to see what Rayanne Graff would do next or if Brian Krakow would ever be able to talk like a normal human being. But the show wasn't picked up for a second season. Talk about a buzzkill. I had so many lingering questions! Would Angela choose Jordan or Brian? Did Graham ever cheat on Patty with Hallie Lowenthal? I NEEDED TO KNOW!! But just like I'll never know what it's like to kiss Jordan in the boiler room, I will never know the joy that came with those answers. So I made up my own. Here are 10 possible directions Angela Chase's life could have taken after the series finale of My So-Called Life.

Come on over to Heartless Doll, read the list and show some love for your hard working Nerdy Bird. :)

Thanks Randy! Yeah, this is one of my all-time favorites.

I'm so sorry Rachel! I just checked and HD is having server issues. It should be fixed soon. If you go to the main page you can read the first little bit of it if that will tide you over.

This is so awesome. I fell in love with this show in '94 and have always kept it in mind when writing my own stuff. Great list too!
