The Other Shoe

Once Upon A Blog is the eleventh episode of the second season of MTV's Awkward. It aired on September 13, 2012


Jenna fictionalizes her blog in an attempt to change her fate. By the end of the episode she changes her blog to private again, and figures out who she wants to be with.


With Jenna still stuck between who to pick and after seeing someone comment on her blog about a "redo" she starts to picture what it would have been like to of no had sex with Matty at camp. She then picture herself becoming popular with Matty as her boyfriend, friends with Sadie, ditching Tamara and Ming and becoming a cheerleader with a new boob job. Her fantasy suddenly becomes sour when Matty dumps her for becoming a mean girl instead of the cool girl he feel in love with.

She then fantasises about if she had told Jake the truth in the first place. She then dreams that after their first kiss, she breaks up with Matty and Jake breaks up with Lissa and they become a couple. This dream also becomes negative where she pictures their relationship going sour when after they had sex for the first time, Jenna becomes infatuated by him instantly convinced they are in love, but Jake feels nothing. It ends with a Jenna lying to Jake about her being pregnant to keep him from going back to Lissa which he finds out about but turns out she is actually pregnant.

The third scenario is that she doesn't go to camp, meaning no Jake or Matty or Sadie in the long hall, with Matty and Jake coming out as gay.

After these scenario's, she decides to change her blog to private and rings her chosen man.
