Amid her recent return to the public eye, formerly troubled actress Amanda Bynes appears to be readjusting to life well after her stint in rehab.
Her mother Lynn, who has been her conservator since she was placed under an involuntary psychiatric hold in a Los Angeles hospital last summer, has said the actress is adjusting well to life as a fashion student, according to Contact Music.
"(She) is doing extremely well. She's making new friends and learning about the fashion industry," she said.
The quotes come just under one week after Bynes posted a selfie of herself with her mother at the FIDM fashion show debut on March 21. Looking healthy and like the young star she once was, Bynes posed with her mother and captioned the twitter photo "xoxo."
Bynes recently finished up her first quarter of school at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Orange County, and is reportedly signing up for more classes in April, and has made no immediate plans to return to acting.
"If she was offered an acting job anytime soon, she may not take it because she's so focused on school," a source told E! News March 20.
The news about Bynes is drastically different from the headlines she was making just one year ago for increasingly bizarre behaviors and strange tweets about fellow celebrities.
Last March saw the actress tweeting one of her most controversial tweets about rapper Drake, where she wrote, "I want @drake to murder my vagina."
After setting a fire in a driveway in Thousand Oaks, Calif. in July of last year, she was placed in an involuntary psychiatric hold at a local hospital, where she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.
She left a rehab facility where she had further received treatment in December 2013.
