Bloggin’ Like A Rebel

16 May

Hey guys, remember that time when I was featured on “Freshly Pressed” and went from less than 10 followers to about 150 followers?

Yeah, that happened. Good times.

Achievement Unlocked: Only MS Paint picture on the page 😀

Basically, I checked my email and noticed that I had 200 or so unread messages… and knew that something was going down. Now there’s like a bajillion more people who are reading my blog, so I figured I’d go ahead and introduce myself:

Yo. I’m Erica. I have a blog on which I post crazy doodles and random posts. I love orange push-up-pops and utilizing gangster colloquialisms, home slice.

Also, I’m a rebel.

You can tell I’m a rebel because I was in a “No Balloon” zone. Fight the power.

Examples of my accomplishments in Rebellion include:

Grand Theft Orange Pops

Who-Doodled-Pictures-Of-Gandalf-All-Over-This-Library-Book Vandalism

And, more recently, Nail-Art Graffiti.

The other day, I was feeling mischievous. The sun was shining, the birds were singing, squirrels were diving out of the trees… Then, I woke up and thought to myself, what mayhem and chaos can I cause today.

So I went about my day, packing and what not, hoping that the opportunity would present itself, eventually.

And it did, while I was shopping.

I was at the grocery store, picking up some cleaning supplies, as ya’ do when you’re packing up. I walked toward the registers, and turned the corner—then I saw my mischief and all its glory.

There stood, in the cosmetics section, a section of nail polish that was as tall as I was.

we wants it… we needs it… must have the preccciiiiooooouuuuusss… tricksie hobbits– oh, wait.

What’s the big deal with nail polish? Why is nail polish mischievous, you might ask?

Colors. All the colors.

When I was in elementary, middle, and high school, my parents had this rule. Well, they had a lot of rules, but one of them was: the only nail polish colors you can wear were whites, pinks, and reds. I’m not quite sure why this rule existed, or when it even started… but it was there. I never much cared either way, because I didn’t care much about my nails.

But when I saw this nail polish shelf, suddenly, I cared.

There were so many colors. Sure, you had your whites, pinks, and reds—but there were also oranges and greens and blues. It was like a rainbow—a double or triple rainbow, really.

Double Rainbow. It’s so intense. What does it mean?!?!?!

AND the brand was called Sinful Colors — the harmonies of sweet rebellion were calling out to me 😀

So I raided the shelf.

I bought about $20 worth of nail polish, and, when I look at them, I know that I am probably the happiest miscreant ever– And I have a nail in every color to show for it.

Hey, but you know what I didn’t buy? Nail polish remover.


I got a Twitter account. If you’re interested in what I’m up to, feel free to check it out.
