Paprika is 100% made in America and guaranteed to be make no sense.

Got a blog of your own but can’t seem to come up with anything to post? She’ll use fear to motivate you to blog! Blogging has never been easier! If you feed Paprika regularly, you’ll probably even get to keep your fingers so you can keep typing!

Paprika may even let you watch her write a blog post for the I’m Just Super Saiyan blog, if she decides to write that day! 40% of the time, she blogs every time!

But that’s not all!

Paying it forward

Fun fact, “Midori” is green in Japanese. The more you know.

So yesterday my internet bud, Annmarie (AKA Sweet Wild Flower), decided to give me this cool anniversary present for my 1 month of blogging. I’d like to take a second to thank her for being such a positive internet buddy. I’m not so used to seeing nice people on the internet. It’s a great change.

Check out that sweet piece of jpeg! I like it, its green and its got a great adjective, more importantly its got “award” at the end of it. Everyone loves awards, right? I give myself awards all the time. The dark chocolate eater award, the best excuses to not go to the gym award, the eating a second and third breakfast this morning award. That last one is really dear to my heart. I’m basically a hobbit.

So this green stallion of an award has some rules that go along with receiving it. Which I will follow, since I don’t really break rules all that often!

Select 15 bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. Holy shit, that is a lot of blogs to list….okay, here goes!

  1. Miami Transit Rider – Daniella’s Rants about Miami public transportation makes her blog my favorite!
  2. Michael Chaney’s Blog -Michael is my favorite writer that I have been exposed to since joining wordpress!
  3. Knitting, feminism and miscellaneous ranting – I WISH I KNEW MANDY IN PERSON, O GOD, SHE’S AMAZING.
  4. Lafemmeroar – I get something out of every post, she’s a great writer.
  5. Museums Reviewed – I have read every single post on this blog. Its re-god-damn-diculous how much I love it.
  6. Hanna Brencher – I just discovered Hanna via her TEDtalk regarding her more love letters project.
  7. Just Homemade – because food porn is the best kind of porn.
  8. Illustrator Bites – Heather is hella talented, I love her illustrations and her blog is adorable.
  9. Delightfully Tacky – I’ve been following Elizabeth since 2009, you could say that I follow her the most regularly!
  10. Living Europea – I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, this couple are living my dream.
  11. Map of Jo – Only recently discovered this blog, but its become my wordpress version of tumblr!
  12. Little Wolf – I want to be Maryanna when I grow up.
  13. Pretty Pink Pebbles – Ana has a little bit of everything!
  14. Stegothesaurus – for your regular dose of flash fiction! :3
  15. The Illustrious Peacock – beautiful photography, you know you want to look at it. LOOK AT IT I SAY.
  16. Violent Metaphors – for when I’m feeling sassy and science-y.

[I added one for good luck!]

As per the instructions, you have all just been nominated for Versatile Blogger Award as well. Let the never-ending game of internet tag begin!

The last rule says I have to tell you guys 7 things about myself. Now you see, the problem with this is, I already did that before. So its hard for me to come up with 7 NEW things to tell you about myself. Mostly because I’ve only been awake for three hours and I’m not at home…

Luckily the Daily Prompt has come to my rescue, giving an idea as to what what I can talk about.

1. Clothes are very important to me. I need them, or else I’d be naked. That may sound a bit obvious, but, really, I don’t want to be walking around naked. Mostly because I get cold very easily. I’m not sure why I’m always perpetually cold, maybe its bad circulation. Regardless, I need clothes so that I don’t feel like one of those shivering hairless cats. I AM A BEAR, and thus require a warm coat of fur. I prefer to be bear than bare, GET IT? O GOD IM NOT EVEN KIND OF FUNNY.

2. When I was growing up my style was that of a tom boy. All I did when I was a kid was play with my brothers toys and video games. My mother attempted to dress me up in skirts and poofy dresses, but these efforts were always met with retaliation. I remember at some point my parents started buying us clothing a few sizes up so that we would grow into them. I ended up stealing my brothers pants and shirts that were too big for him. I don’t think he minded much…but I never actually asked, lol.

3. When I was in highschool my style was that of a hottopic poster child. I wasn’t the happiest of kids when I moved back to the states. I was pretty depressed that America and American teenagers were not at all how I pictured them.  So I think that’s why I started listening to really dark music. I say dark, because it involved the color black. Lots of black. I think I wore only black for like a good solid two years of my life. Sometimes I’d add in some bright colors, but most of the time…just black. I had those giant over sized baggy pants, the ones where it looked like I was hiding a small child in each pant leg. I didn’t own shirts that weren’t band shirts. Seriously. I had spikey wrist bracelets and wore clunky metal necklaces. My backpack was filled with band patches and I only listened to black metal, death metal, speed metal or alternative bands. And I had a livejournal (does that still exist?). Basically, I was your average angsty teen.

4. My style today is a little bit of everything. I enjoy skirts and dresses again, lol, I’m glad I got over that. I also love the shit out of bermuda shorts. Best. Invention. Ever. If I’m not wearing flip flops its because I’m going to the gym. If I’m going dancing I never wear heels…as I learned the hard way that bar hopping and clubbing require a lot of footwork. I have a shit ton of novelty t-shirts. I have star wars, star trek, band shirts, a tuxedo shirt, super hero shirts, I even have a Powerthirst shirt – for when I decide that I need to be uncomfortably energetic! I also have a wonderful pile of more fashionable tops, but I never seem to find occasions to wear them.

5. My style as a nursing student screams yoga pants and college t-shirts…Mostly because I don’t sleep much, I wake up early, I spend my days studying and I have no life. Don’t judge me; you’d dress like this too. The only permanent addition to my wardrobe since starting nursing school is a watch. I never regularly wore watches before, but now I feel weird if I go a day without one. Maybe one day, when I’m a super adult, I’ll get a cool galaxy gear watch…until then, I can only hope to buy a Casio calculator watch. Those are the fucking coolest.

6. Clothes you will never see me in: overalls or no-sleeve tees. There was this one time, when I went to Japan with my girl friend Kim, that the cool peeps we were hanging out with took us to the beach and we had nothing to wear for such an occasion. So we went to a nearby clothing store, but the cheapest clothing we found were a pair of overalls…one pink and one yellow. We ended up purchasing them because our friends told us that they looked cute, and they pushed us to buy them. We looked so absolutely ridiculous. We looked like Pink Mario and Wario. It was so embarrassing. All picture evidence has since been burned. The no-sleeve thing is related, once again, to my dislike of being cold. Speaking of which, something you will ALWAYS see me carrying: a sweater or jacket. I never leave home without one.

7. My favorite article of clothing is my hello kitty snuggie. I consider it an article of clothing…even though if you want to get technical, I’m pretty sure its more of a robe-blanket. MAD? MAD CAUSE I GOT A HELLO KITTY SNUGGIE? You should be.

BAAAAAAAAAAM. Two birds, one early morning stone. Done and done! I’m ready for second breakfast now.

Lieke van der Vost

So I stumbled upon this website (for those who don’t speak Dutch, like myself, you have to translate the webpage) and found this amazing artist from the Netherlands. Her name is Lieke van der Vost, and her bear illustrations are just magnificent! Look at these guys, its like I’m looking at my bear family. I am a bear, for those who may have forgotten. You should visit her site, like…right now.

Le Bus Bear, or is it an RV? Regardless, I love it.

She’s got a great style of drawing, and she has a shop section! So those who want one of her adorable cards, prints, stickers or bags – I implore you to indulge yourself. I personally have my eye on this:

MUST. HAVE. TOTE BAG. OMG.

Van der Vost also made this cute little boar that you can print, cut out and display wherever you wish! It was to celebrate her 1,000th facebook “like”! I plan on doing so myself.  I can’t get over how wonderful her art is!

This bore is wearing a sweater, I’m not sure many things in this world can be better than this.

Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica.

For those who caught a glimpse of a personal blog post I made, I have to send my deepest apologies. You weren’t meant to see that per say – after speaking with my confidant – I realized how inappropriate it was. I will be journaling my hardxcore emotions in private posts from now on. I assume no one cares, but I thought I’d make the announcement anyway. 

This post will hence forth be about bears. I am one. So really, this post is about me, the Super Saiyan M Bear.

I realize that maybe my form is a bit aggressive, so I will try to tone it down. Also, I’m far too lazy to be able to keep a Kamehameha going for more than one picture per post. That shit takes effort to draw. But don’t lie, you know I use that MS Paint airbrush tool like a fucking pro. Look how real that looks. It’s basically coming right at you.

Bears and I, we are the same. Because we are mammals, we are furry. I am the hairiest person I know, because I am the most bear person I know.

It’s like a mirror image

Bears usually can be found chilling in their forest-y habitats. Sittin’ around, waiting till they’re hungry, or sleepy, or whatever their little bear hearts desire. I am no different. [Take note, my whole life occurs while I sit…to remind those who may have forgot]

Coloring in bears takes too much effort

Bears love to sleep, in fact, they love that shit so much they hibernate. So do I. (I hibernate on my stomach…cause sleeping on your back is overrated)

Think of them as polar bears, who live in…not the snow.

But you should never forget that bears are dangerous, like myself. If we feel threatened or if we are on the hunt, we can be scary as fuck. We will do anything to protect the things we love.

Why the fuck would anyone change MS Paint between windows XP and windows VISTA? Honestly. Leave that shit alone Microsoft. Its not that serious.

I’m glad I got to explain this to you all.

P.S. Sorry a lot of the color schemes don’t really match up, I was switching between MS Paint from a Windows XP and a Windows VISTA. And I’m too lazy to color correct shit. I’m a bear, we don’t do those kinds of details.

One Lovely Blog Award!

So, I can’t even believe I’m saying this…but…I was nominated for an award.

I’m not making this shit up. Blame Michael Chaney. He did it.

So those of you who don’t know Michael, he’s got seven facts of his own over at his blog. He’s pretty cool too, he writes things that you should read. Thought provoking things. Next level shit. So, I would re-nominate him, but I don’t think that’s how this thing works.

Oh, but it gets better, there are some pass along rules associated with this pink, glorious jpeg!

The One Lovely Blog Award requires that I give seven facts about myself and nominate another five recipients.”

So, here’s seven things about Super Saiyan M…

1. Guild Wars. I played it the most consistently and vigorously than any other game in my life. It’s also the first MMORPG I was introduced to.  I’ve actually made several friends through the game, I’ve met two of them in person.

2. I lived overseas for 11 years. I have been to 27 countries, but only 3 states. I wish to continue to travel; I have more places in mind! My dream is to end up in a cool big city for a while, with like coffee shops everywhere (not Starbucks, I’m talking hipster shit).

3. My biggest pet peeve is people being on their smart phones. I’d be more specific but really I think you know what I mean… When the person you are having a conversation with hasn’t looked up from their phone screen. The guy who bumps into you because he was on his phone. The person who interrupts you mid-sentence to show you a vine video…or a facebook status…or a tweet. Come on people, why do you do that??? Seriously.

4. The most liberating thing I have ever experienced, was losing my phone. I was no longer in charge of anything, I had an excuse for everything. And everyone  had zero expectations for me showing up or responding to anything. It was glorious. However, after this happened a second, third and fourth time, I have to say this feeling was quickly replaced with more darker emotions.

5. I have been reading comic books since I was a wee child (any Psylocke fans?), I collected trading cards, and I watched anything with superheros on television. I’ve been pretty obsessed with super hero and comic culture for the majority of my life.

6. Scent is like my favorite sense. I get it, hearing is cool and seeing is like super important. But smelling is where its at. The smell of food gets me every time. I have purchased more perfumes than I’d like to admit. Every gift I give to one of my girl friends is usually scented. I can identify every bath gel, shampoo or conditioner that I own by its scent. Since being in nursing school I’ve spent a shit ton of money on scented antibacterial soaps and hand sanitizers. I crave certain smells, which is why I have a lot of candles as well. I also am keen on what my friends smell like. This may sound creepy, but its how I operate.  Equally strange, I suppose, is that I can block or minimize other scents. It’s a weird super power to have. The worst is when I have allergies (which happens far too often) and I can’t smell anything at all.

7.  I’m a bear. Evidence:

Ferocious clawing action going on! Hide yer kids, hide yer food!

Now, the nominations, cause I got to select la crème de la crème of wordpress writers…that I am subscribed to.

1. Miami Transit Rider: If you know Miami, then you know bad driving. If you know Miami driving , then you know frustration. But, if you take the public transportation in Miami, then you are Daniela. And I suggest reading along for a ride that you will surely be able to relate to. Her rants are awesome.

2. The Global Citizens Blog: I’m not sure if this kind of blog counts, but I’mma nominate it anyway. It’s a really interesting blog to follow, each post is by a different student who is partaking in the Victoria Overseas Exchange (Vic OE) exchange student program. I love reading about what each person is doing, their new experiences and what they’re learning along the way.

3. Keep Culture Weird; I like Dave’s posts. I’d say more, but really you should read it, cause its hard to sum up all of them. Several, several guest posts made on the blog are by his students, all good fun reading.

4. zi0otography: I’m obsessed with the photography that’s posted on this blog. It’s beautifully captured and captivating. :D Also there are pictures of the Netherlands right now, because I guess the photographer is passing through.

5. Museums Reviewed: This is the shit. It’s literally posts about museums – which are basically my favorite thing. A Polish guy in the Netherlands guides you through the good ones, the bad ones, all of them really. It’s the fucking best. I’m not sure why you’re still reading this…you should have clicked the link and investigated by now.

6. SaSa Stories: Sarah is studying marine biology in Groningen, cause she’s a bad ass. I love reading about her adventures, she is so adorable it hurts. Her blog still seems relatively new. But I’m not judging…I’ve only had this blog for a month lol.

7. Blogging Robin I have to support my fellow nursing students! Cassandra is a Canadian nursing student who I can closely relate to. She also feels that shopping is a disease… Once again, this is more of a new comer to the wordpress world.

My work here is done.

Le Kiam

My beautiful friend Kiam is just as complex as any other human being. She is super cool and super funny. She is also my longest time friend, wait, longest time sounds weird… of all my close friends I have known her the longest. Aw yeah, grammar high five.

Unfortunately as of late, when I talk to Kiam, it usually looks like this:

But there was a time, years ago, when I had my shit more together! Hopfully Kiam remembers those times too, lol.

Que dream sequence.  …………

So Kiam and I met through the internet. It was back a million years ago before smart phones existed, and facebook somehow was a new thing. We were starting the same year, going to be going to the same college, and we both knew absolutely no one. We met in an elevator on campus because it turned out that she shared the same dorm building. Not long after meeting Kiam, I decided to spend 100% of my time with her.

After leaving that college, we both ended up transferring to another one, and though our college woes would continue, we both remained best buds. She invited me to go to a Hair Show [which is like a hair stylist, make up artist and spa-related convention) annually, which I enjoyed thoroughly. Kiam has changed her hair style over the years, because she is stylish. [Sry Kiam I am really bad at drawing super short hair cuts…]

But one thing remains the same, and those are her spirit animals.

Kiam was officially the first friend I met after befriending online, and it is so weird to think of her this way, since I’ve known her for 8 years [holy shit we are old as fuck].

I love you Kiam, with all of my bear heart.
