Here's your update on Amanda Bynes, who has been making positive changes in her life this year following legal and personal turmoil, which have included arrests and months of psychiatric treatment.

The 28-year-old Hairspray and Easy A actress is on her summer break from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM), a source told E! News exclusively on Wednesday, July 2. The former Nickelodeon star is a student at the California college, which has four campuses, including in Los Angeles. She started taking classes at the school's location in Irvine in January, soon after she left a treatment facility and was placed in the custody of her parents, who live in a suburban town northwest of L.A.

Bynes, who has lived on her own before, is currently looking for an apartment near the FIDM's Orange County campus, located about 80 miles from her parents' home (a commute of about 1 hour and 20 minutes, without traffic). The actress hopes to reside in her new place four days a week, the source said.

Earlier this week, a New York judge dismissed a bong-throwing incident case involving Bynes. The actress was arrested in May 2013 for allegedly throwing one out of her Manhattan apartment window and for possession of marijuana. No remnants of smoking paraphernalia were found on the ground near the building. The judge had dismissed the case after ruling that Bynes had fulfilled her requirements of staying out of trouble for six months and attending regular counseling sessions.

The incident had followed several driving arrests in Los Angeles and came amid a slew of bizarre posts on Twitter, including photos showing a new, shaved hairstyle and messages about people she deemed "ugly."

Almost one year ago, on July 22, Bynes was detained on a 5150 involuntary psychiatric hold for setting a small fire in her parents' neighbor's driveway and underwent treatment at a hospital and rehab facility.

She had deleted her tweets following her turmoil and returned to the social network this past March. In April, she later showcased a healthier look in a Twitter photo of herself in a bright yellow-green bikini (from a family vacation), and thanked her fans for wishing her a 28th birthday reports E News.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
