Let’s Talk About Kevin

KEVINOh, hello, sugar cookies!

  1. OMG this list though. :D I hope I get to see you one day, Kevin, at NY in the future hehe.

    I’m anal about books too. Like they have to be in TOP condition, or else my heart will shed a tear. (Although I’m like that with most things… Once I refused to use a piece of paper for my notes because it got bent from a book. WHat is my life?!) Yay for good-smelling books! (and sweatpants ftw omg)

  3. Seriously, just stop with saying you’re not interesting. This was so great to read!
    We’re both born in August and we’re both Ravenclaws, I knew there was a reason I liked you :)
    I think I can recite 100% of the dialogue from Mean Girls, that movie is liiiiifffeee. By the way, you misspelt Serena Williams when you were talking about your favourite tennis player. Just thought I’d let you know. Oh man, Chris Evans *fans self*, he should never wear a shirt.
    And me too Kevin, me too. One day our Hogwarts letter will arrive and we’ll both be in Ravenclaw, visiting Hogsmeade and going to the library. It will happen!
    You’re the best for doing this. It was awesome to read all these things about you. <3

    1. Haha. Oh, so you like me? 😏😏

      Mean Girls is life. Yasssssssss, gawd. Like, Regina George is my spirit animal besides Bianca. Haha.

      We shall hang out in the Ravenclaw common room and read by the fire! And check out the Hogwarts library!

      Aw, shucks. You’re making me blush, Liam! Thanks for reading everything! 😝


      1. Keep it in your pants Kevin, geez ;)
        Yes! Regina’s queen. Is Bianca from that show RuPaul’s Drag Race? My friend’s obsessed with it. You two should be besties.
        OMG the common room is so awesome. I’d be so worried about figuring out the riddle at the door though.
        You’re welcome. We’ll call it even, not prize for either of us for reading it all?

      2. Pfft! What were you thinking with all the pants business? Christ on a bike, Liam!

        Yessss. Bianca is from Drag Race – I need to meet this friend of yours! Maybe I’ll like him/her more than you 😏

        Don’t worry! We have other Ravenclaws to help us! Though the whole riddle is quite daunting 😝


  4. Hi there, hello Kevin! Well this post was a bit narcissistic indeed, but I love getting to know other bloggers! Don’t worry, I snif books as well. NOTHING weird about that, ahah. And you love editing? Well, we should trade places: I LOVE writing, but editing is something I can’t manage to do. I try, though. I think I know the movie Mean Girls by heart, I just love it so, so much ahah.
    And hm, books, tea, and Gossip Girl? YES PLEASE.
