The Middle 5.20 Review: “The Optimist”

Stress is an unfortunate reality of life.  Whether it be work related like in Frankie’s case, or school related like Axl and Sue’s cases, we can all probably identify with this week’s episode of The Middle.

Poor Sue is driving herself (and her family) nuts over her premature obsession with college.  She’s only a junior, but she’s already feeling pressure to apply for tons of scholarships and devote all her time to studying for the SATs.  I would have loved to be able to read her essay for the American Patriots scholarship which she entitled “Why I’m an AmeriCAN and not an AmeriCAN’t: Red, White, and Sue.”  ABC should totally put that up on online because I have a feeling it would be very inspirational to read.  Sadly she doesn’t receive that award, but they do look forward to hearing from her again next year.  Fingers crossed she gets it then!
