This is my first venture into "real" blogging... eek! I've had a personal and more fashion-oriented tumblr for a while but I'm so excited to enter this new venture that I think will allow me to be more creative and share about myself and what interests me. So a little about myself...

I'm Blake, a sophomore at the finest school in the land, the University of Georgia (GO DAWGS!) and I'm studying English Education. I just recently transferred but I hail from Athens originally where I grew up on a farm with wonderful parents. My mother instilled all of my rather southern traits in me, including a tendency to call everyone "ma'am" and "sir" regardless of age and a penchant for big hair. My father taught me how to assert myself and they both always encouraged me to follow my dreams and believe in myself. I thrive on the written word as inspiration (hello, English nerd over here), so I plan to end every blog post with a little nugget of wisdom that makes me happy and I hope does the same for you.

The title of this blog, "Collegiate Misadventures," was inspired my realization that college is the perfect time to try out new things to find out what exactly makes me "Blake." Some attempts might be missteps, but it's a thrilling adventure all the same.

So here it goes. And here's a glimpse into my life, one misadventure at a time.

Love and hugs,

"Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen."


  1. Welcome to the blog world love! I love reading other college blogs and was excited to hear that you attend University of Georgia, I'm taking a semester off for health reasons (I'm a total klutz and broke my foot) and I am thinking of transferring and its definitely on the list :)

  2. Oh em gee! Blake, I'm so glad you've entered the world of blogging and I love you and love this so much.
