Disney Channel original movies were the highlight of any millennial.
From "Halloweentown" to "Smart House," the DCOM Originals were at their peak in the mid 2000's. One of our favorites was "Read it and Weep." The 2006 movie told the story of Jamie Bartlett, played by Kay Panabaker, who finds herself in a bit of a sticky situation as her private journal about the musings of high school, gets published into a book. Is, played by her older sister Danielle Panabaker, is her alter ego, and main character in her journal.
Check out the trailer below for a bit of a refresher.

The now 26-year-old, pictured below, hasn't been up to much since her Disney days, only having recently acted in 2012.
Today, I am grateful. Sure, I had to go back to the grocery store twice because I didn't properly "adult" and make a grocery list (then there are no surprises!) But I have a job I love, a roof over my head, and a mind that keeps me cognizant of just how fortunate I am. So I'm grilling, having a beer, and just being happy of where I am and what I have today. Cheers, America.

After a bit of digging, Panabaker is...get ready for it, a zookeeper! That's right, Kay Panabaker decided that acting wasn't for her.

One fan asked her on Twitter why she drifted away form acting and her answer was the absolute best.
@TheRachaelE I just lost the love for acting. Life is short, we spend so much time at work, gotta do what you love :) and I love my job!!
