About Brooke & Vanessa

Brooke and Vanessa met each other at the University of Missouri. Because they both major in journalism, they found themselves sitting next to each other through the typical boring college lecture. 

Vanessa quickly took notice of Brooke’s love of poetry, as she would sneak a book of poems into lecture and read. Brooke took notice of Vanessa’s love of the hot boys in the class. This sparked colorful conversation between the two and thus began a beautiful friendship. 

Both girls took classes the following summer semester and experienced many things together throughout the summer months, including road trips to shop, watching numerous films together and observing football camp. Needless to say, Summer ’08 was a great summer for a friendship to flourish. 

About 12 months into their friendship, Brooke and Vanessa were inspired to begin the creation of a blog. Both girls watched a season of the Bachelor, a reality TV series,  and found that their opinions on what they saw were so strong that they should be shared with the World Wide Web community. They quickly discovered that the Bachelor was not the only thing that they were opinionated on—they actually had many opinions on a wide range of things within the realms of pop culture and the media. 

They then decided to make their blog a social commentary. Read. Enjoy. Comment.

  1. This doesn’t seem like junk to me. Best of luck in you endeavors.

  2. Great About page, ladies. Nice to meet more people studying English (I was an English major myself, back in the day.) A very nice blog, too. I enjoyed your calling-all-Trekkers post. I grew up on Next Gen and Voyager. That book summary was rubbish.
    By the by, Vanessa, one of my best friends actually got to be an extra in LotR: RotK! She was an orc!
