6 Month Blogiversary Q&A // #NoFruitDiscrimination + My Real Name??? + Blogging Tips + Lots of Mangoes (!!!)

Apparently you guys have a lot of questions about me.

About 50. But I’m not really sure because I’m too lazy to count.

However, this mango queen LOVES you and actually answered all of them!!!

It involves LOTS of mangoes (I wonder why…), stuff about me, stuff about my blogging success because apparently people want to STEAL my SECRETS SMH, and other things! Just so you know, this post is almost 3K words long and I’M SO SO SORRY.

Lol not really it was fun.

To start us off, we have the RIDICULOUS question of…

flowers

Do you like mangoes?

WHAT KIND OF QUESTION IS THIS OF COURSE I DO???

flowers

How are you such a freaking awesome (and cool! and witty!) person like I can’t. even.?

Freaking awesome: I just am, folks.

Cool: I wear sunglasses.

Witty: I WAS NOT WITTY BEFORE BLOGGING, I TELL YOU. I just was nooooot. But I wanted to be funny when blogging because that attracts people and friends so I just tried to be humorous like other bloggers. And now it’s evolved into my own voice!

What’s your favorite day of the week and why?

For some reason I feel like I need to say Wednesday… I don’t know why??? That’s the day of the week we get released from school earlier but other than that (and HUMP DAY!) I don’t know why this would be my favorite day???

LET’S GO WITH SATURDAY because we’re freeeeeee. Although I have dance and homework and blogging and reading and writing and ghlkadjfl;aksdjfs.

Isn’t Aaron Burr the best. (Statement.)

He’s great but LAFAYETTE IS BETTER!!!

Honey nut cheerios or cinnamon toast crunch?

I’ve had neither but I’m going to go with honey nut cheerios because I have an obsession with cheerios (especially this one).

flowers

Why do you love this thing ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ so much??? I demand ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ an explanation. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ or not. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The REAL question is: Why DON’T you love this thing ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ so much???

I don’t know, really. It’s snarky. It’s smirky. IT’S EVERYTHING. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

flowers

If you could be in any Disney film, which one would you choose?

Ooh, tough one! Well, probably Beauty and the Beast because I WANT A LIBRARY THAT SIZE!!!

Since you’re the Mango Queen, how do you feel about other fruit?

I’m glad you know my position in this world.

I LOVE OTHER FRUIT!!! I of course love mangoes, but other fruits are amazing! Besides mangoes, I love:

  • blueberries
  • apples
  • raspberries
  • blackberries
  • cherries
  • grapes
  • strawberries
  • pineapple
  • kiwi
  • peaches
  • bananas
  • pears
  • plums

I also love some fruits I ate in Thailand but I only know the Thai name oops.

ALSO the only fruits I don’t like are avocadoes (or anything that is basically a vegetable but not—except for tomatoes) and oranges. I’ll eat SOME oranges but I don’t PREFER them.

flowers

If you had to choose between joining the Avengers and Justice League, what would you choose?

I don’t… watch this kind of stuff. But I HEARD Wonder Woman was in Justice League so let’s go with that one.

#StillDamaged

flowers

Batman or Iron Man?

I KNOW WHO ASKED THIS QUESTION AND I’M SAYING BATMAN FOR THEM.

flowers

When did you realize your love for mangoness?

Well, I’ve always loved mangoes since a little kid* but when I put “here are some dried mangoes for you” in my sidebar bio… it became a staple. So. Basically when I started blogging???

*Fun fact: In Thai we say “mah-mwoung”. “Mwoung” means purple so idk where that came from???

flowers

What are your favorite songs right now?

Can I say Hamilton.

flowers

If you could have ONE bookish power what would it be?

DANG IT. I want so many bookish powers!!! I’m gonna do a list and choose the best one because #lists.

  • power to READ FAST
  • power to get all the books I want (through library or other sources)
  • power to squeeze books into tiny little spaces
  • power to buy all the books I want without actually spending money (!!!)
  • power to defeat the TBR
  • power to manipulate time to have more time to read/eat

YOU KNOW WHAT I’M GOING WITH THE TIME ONE. Because 1) I could turn back time over and over again to keep reading books, and 2) I could manipulate time so that I can STEAL books from the bookstore without getting caught.

SOMEONE PLEASE MAKE THIS HAPPEN.

flowers

What’s your favorite quote? (maybe include an aesthetic image to go with because AESTHETIC)

Just one??? JUST ONE???

Image result for we are not the same but we are all equal

I have never heard of this quote until now. BUT I AGREE AND I LOVE IT.

I wanted a quote that talked about equality because if it’s one thing I will fight you on, IT IS EQUALITY. No matter your sex, sexuality, religion, race, ethnicity, physical appearance, or opinion, WE ARE ALL EQUAL, and it’s time to accept that.

flowers

How old are you?

I DON’T LIKE SAYING MY AGE because #AgeJudgers still exist in the blogging world… but I’m 13.

*runs away*

I SWEAR I’M MUCH MATURER THAN YOUR TYPICAL 13-year-old.

flowers

What country do you live in?

The United States of ‘Murica. Please come save me and take me to England to escape this president to get an accent just because.

flowers

How did you get 700 followers in 6 months?

I HAVE NO IDEA AND CAN BE OF NO HELP, CHLID. I’M SORRY.

But really, I have NO. IDEA. Apparently this is “fast” for blog growth, which I am very very happy and thankful for and confused about.

PEOPLE JUST LIKE ME!!!

(But tbh it was probably because I interacted a lot. That or my blogging voice. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯)

flowers

Cats or dogs?

DOGS ALL THE WAY MAN.

flowers

Black or white?

Black, like my soul. >:)

flowers

A place you want to visit really badly?

LONDON!!! ENGLAND!!! BRITAIN!!! EUROPE!!! And also France. (Hello Marie!)

flowers

Are mangoes your favorite thing to eat EVER?

Um… I have lots of favorite foods okay DON’T MAKE ME CHOOSE.

flowers

Why pink?

Why not?

For the record, pink is NOT A GIRLY COLOR because there should be no such things as gender stereotypes??? So just because I like pink doesn’t mean I am “girly”.

flowers

DID THE COW JUMP OVER THE MOON!?!

Image result for cow jumping over the moon gif

I don’t know, did it???

flowers

What’s your favorite type of mango?

THE YUMMY ONES, OF COURSE.

flowers

What’s your favorite quote/saying?

This question was answered up above! But for favorite saying…

“Eat one mango, give the Mango Queen one hundred.”

This is a 100% legit saying.

flowers

Favorite animal?

ELEPHANT! Elephants are the cutest things ever and they’re ENDANGERED AND I CRY. I got to ride one when I was little and gosh can I just say how lovely these animals are???

I also like dolphins, sea turtles, and cocker spaniels.

flowers

What’s your best childhood memory?

Does this count as childhood if it was two years ago???

NO IT DOESN’T.

Okay! So it’s Valentine’s Day and we’re making cards for our reading buddies*. I’m cutting out paper hearts when one of my classmates comes in (let’s call him… Maple). He asks what we’re doing and I tell him and then he gets to work.

Then, I don’t remember EXACTLY what happened, but I was looking away and then he stole one of the paper hearts. I stole it back and he said, “Hey, you stole my heart!”

And I replied, “Only because you stole it first.”

And it’s right at this moment that FREAKING IVY CHILD decides to come in, and she bursts out laughing. Maple and I are looking at each other like “What???” And then we finally get it and blush and laugh.

The end.

flowers

What has been the best book you discovered through blogging?

Oooooh, so many! I read Simon Vs and Ari and Dante, which I heard of from the bookish community. I’ve read Illuminae and discovered magical realism (thanks, Beth!).

But I have to say, the best book I’ve discovered from through blogging is The Archived, by Victoria Schwab. It led me to other Schwab books (like the AMAZING series of Shades of Magic and Monsters of Verity). And I have this book to thank for it all!

flowers

What are your hopes for your blog between now and your one year blogiversary?

What a great question! Can I change “hopes” to “goals” because I really really love goals??? Yes? Okay thank you.

  • Reach 1000 followers! I’M SCREAMING RIGHT NOW but I think it’s actually possible? If I have the same pattern as these last six months, I’ll get another 700 followers by the time I hit one year, so IT’S POSSIBLE???
  • Post more book reviews. Some people on my feedback survey said they wanted more book reviews from me. Others said that they wanted less of it.* I’m getting into ARCs and will probably post reviews of those books on my blog!
  • Use my own photography in posts. This would be AMAZING because I looooove photography. I don’t have a good camera tho so I have to steal my mom’s phone???
  • Do more life stuff. I think I spend a liiiiiiiittle too much time in the blogging world and it’s not very healthy for me, both physically and mentally. So I’d like to just focus more on life in general!

flowers

If you came across a genie and received three wishes what would you wish for?

WHY ARE THESE QUESTIONS SO HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARD.

  • For general decency in humanity. Because then we’d get equality, world peace, possibly solve LOTS of global issues, and JUST BE OVERALL BETTER.
  • For books to be cheaper and my pockets richer. Okay… I’ll adjust it to EVERYONE’S pockets richer so we can all be happy bookworms. Wow this is so selfish.

  • FOR MY FUTURE WISHES TO COME TRUE. Because I’m #smart.

flowers

If you could own ANY animal in the world, what would you have?

An… elephant?

Okay, probably not. Honestly, I want to have a dog. I’m allergic to dog and cat fur, which is SO SAD BECAUSE I LOVE DOGS.

flowers

What’s your real name?

THE MOMENT OF TRUTH.

My real name is…

The Mango Queen.

HA I GOT YOU THERE DIDN’T I.

Image result for evil smile gif

Tbh if I ever announced my real name (which will happen eventually, don’t you worry), I would still go by May. I’ve built a brand as May, and I’m also used to people calling me that SOOOOO.flowers

What is one reason why you think you’ve become so successful as a blogger?

HAHAHAHA WHY IS EVERYONE WANTING TO TALK ABOUT MY BLOGGING FAILURE SUCCESS.

But seriously? I really don’t know why my blog’s grown so fast. I’d say I’m lucky. But I work REALLY REALLY hard to make my blog and posts look good, and that everything is good quality and that you’ll enjoy everything.

But I really AM lucky. Some people work super hard on their blogs and don’t get a lot of followers/commenters. Which absolutely SUCKS.

I think the main reason I’ve become so successful is that I interact with others. The #1 tip that all bloggers will give you is to INTERACT WITH YOUR COMMENTERS AND OTHER BLOGGERS.

BUT I’ve also heard that people really like my blogging voice, people think I’m sweet*, people think I’m funny/witty/hilarious, people like my content, I HONESTLY DON’T KNOW.

*HAHAHHAHAHHHAHAAAHAHA. Is this a subtle reference to Marie (again)??? No.

flowers

Do you have any tips for writing blog posts that are interesting and resonate well with readers but still have good quality?

What is this “but still”. There shouldn’t be a “but still” in this question. IT SHOULD BE AN “AND”.

I think that if your post is good quality, they will be interesting and resonate well with readers! And similarly, if the post is interesting and resonates well with readers, it would be good quality!

So, I’m not sure how to answer this? I’m just going to say WRITE GOOD QUALITY POSTS AND THEY WILL BE INTERESTING AND RESONATE WELL WITH YOUR READERS.

flowers

If you could have another blog, what would it be about?

I HAVE NO IDEA. My love for mangoes???

Though let’s face it. That’s already this blog.

flowersWhat are your favorite ice cream toppings?

I’ve never tried mangoes on top of ice cream (A CRIME), but I’m sure it would taste amazing!

I’m fine with any topping really (IT’S ICE CREAM), but I will always love chocolate sauce. Or whatever that thing is.

flowers

Writing or reading?

Reading because illiteracy SUCKS, and also if I couldn’t physically write, I could get someone to write it down FOR me. HAHA @ YOU.

flowersWhy did you choose May Everly as a blog name?

ACTUALLY, Forever and Everly is my blog name, and May Everly is my blogging name.

I’M SORRY I JUST HAD TO POINT THAT OUT I’LL GO DIE NOW.

Um, well. I started a really bad blog years before as “Kade Everly”. But like… it wasn’t a blog. It was cringy. It was horrible.

I really liked that name so I wanted to use it for THIS blog. But then I was like “I don’t want to explain that I’m a GIRL and the name Kade might make them think I’m a boy???”

So then I randomly thought of a name with the same “ay” sound and that name was MAY! VOILA.

flowersWhat book would you live inside?

THE BOOK OF ALL BOOKS SO THAT I CAN TRAVEL AND LIVE INSIDE ALL THE BOOKS HA I’M A GENIUS.

flowers

How do you find new blogs that you can relate to?

Um, I don’t know how to answer this question???

I’m a very relating person* and find myself relating to lots of things. My main passion is books and writing soooo I’ll read a lot of book blogs (in the YA genre). BAM. I relate.

Oh, and I find these blogs by followers/commenters, checking out bloggers in comments sections of other blogs, shout-outs by people, etc.

*This sounds weird.

flowers

Where/how do you get your beautiful graphic dividery thingamabobs?

Well, the individual flowers I got from Fox and Hazel, but you can get free design resources from LOTS of places! I made the whole thing in PicMonkey (my love <3) but I need to REMAKE IT BECAUSE THEY LOOK WEIRD.

flowers

If all the mangoes died what would you do?

I would do nothing because the mangoes would NEVER die.

Seriously though, what do you eat for breakfast???

AYYY SOMEONE WANTS TO KNOW WHAT I EAT FOR BREAKFAST!

This is the Average May Breakfast™, though sometimes it’s different.

  • scrambled eggs
  • sautéed spinach (IT’S DISGUSTING I TELL YOU I HATE IT)
  • strawberries. or another fruit, but usually strawberries
  • some kind of bread-y thing (like French-toast-that’s-not-really-French-toast-or-French-at-all, pancakes, waffles, or muffins. all homemade)
  • water because STAY HYDRATED KIDS
  • and if my mom’s nice and doesn’t make my sis and I eat sautéed spinach, we drink a green smoothie with spinach in it*

*THE SPINACH IS EVERYWHERE ESCAPE WHILE YOU CAN.

flowers

Who do you take inspiration from?

Hmm, I’ll take this a bunch of different ways!

For blogging, I’m inspired by my blogging friends (who I shouted out in this post), and I also am inspired by really popular bloggers who I love. (*cough cough* CAIT @ PAPER FURY. And also Marie @ Drizzle and Hurricane Books. Whom I’ve mentioned like three times now. And Ilsa @ A Whisper of Ink.)

For writing, I’m inspired by AUTHORS, of course! Reading books is what got me into wanting to WRITE books. Authors are SO amazing and inspire me every day. <333 And of course, my writer friends! And bloggers who write!

For just life in general, my family and friends, of course. My mom has leukemia—she’s been in remission for quite a while now. But she decided she would stop taking the medicine* and has been fine for years! And she also works so so hard.

My friends are so amazing and kind and supportive and I can always count on them if I’m going through a rough time. Where would we be without family and friends?

*She is a strong supporter of NATURAL medicine. Which is also why I eat like everything organic and non-GMO and preservative-free.

Show your bookmark collection? 

What “collection” are we talking about here. I only have one and it’s a business card I found in a library book. That I can’t take a picture of because it has a phone number with the area code of where I live. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

How does one make graphics without using Canva. HELP. 

EASY. Delete your Canva account and make a PicMonkey account. Make graphics on PicMonkey and be amazed at how much cooler it is than Canva.

HAHAHA just kidding I’m not that cruel. For now.

Well, I use PicMonkey for pretty much everything. Canva is good for beginners, I admit, because they have all those cool templates. So if you’re starting graphic design, start with Canva!

I know I should’ve because my old graphics were SO. CRINGY.

Um, there’s really not I can help with here??? Because it depends on what graphics you’re trying to make, what you want them to look at, etc. I’m actually planning a post on how I make featured images, so you’ll have to wait till then!

Maybe I am cruel.

Favourite YouTubers/Recipes (or both)?

Just wondering but how are YouTubers and recipes even related???

First of all, I don’t really watch YouTube. *cue gasps from the audience*

Second of all, I don’t know any recipes because I suck at cooking. *gasps again*

  3. May, I thought you were going to tell us you name! I’m was so disappointed, you mean mango.

    Eat your spinach, girl. It tastes fabulous. My Mom is a a super healthy person too! She makes us eat only organic non-gmo food. No food coloring or artificial flavors. I get it though. Because before we ate like this (I was around 8) I couldn’t read at all! I tried so hard, but my eyes would, like jump around the page and I couldn’t focus. Then when we switched to all natural foods, I jump nearly 3 grades in reading. It was fabulous.

    But anyway. I forgot to ask you any questions I’m I’m mad at myself now. Oh well. I loved reading the post though!

    Also I loved reading all your answers to these questions, and wow there were a lot of them.
    I totally didn’t realise your real name wasn’t May, but it’s too late now, I think of you as May so even if you told us your real name I’d still call you May (I’m terrible with names). Oh I’m really glad I could introduce you to magical realism, and it’s great that you discovered V.E. Schwab through blogging as well. She’s an incredible author and one of my all-time favourites. 🙂

  7. I totally get the whole not wanting to explain you’re a girl thing because the name Kade is kind of genderless. That’s why I was like hm maybe I don’t want to go by kris (yes i purposely always make it lowercase) but then I was like oh but then I’ll be weird and cool and mysterious maybe?? I DON’T KNOW I JUST DID IT. It’s an anagram, but that’s a story for a different time!!
    Aw, you’re 13! 😀 Now I feel absolutely ancient. When I was 13, that would make you 5. Holy plums, I’m old.
    You remind me of myself a lot when I was 13, tbh. I did competitive dance as well. Also, considered myself mature for a 13 year old (which I was told a lot by adults??) I miss dance sososo much now because college happened and there was no way I could continue dancing 5+ days a week and doing comps. Throwing it back to the time I was the snow queen in a ballet. *sighs* I miss it terribly, treasure it May!
    Congrats on so much success in such a short amount of time! You have so much to be proud of, girl.

I mean, right now I just had dance from 9 – 4 (and then I have it again for the next few days plus a class from 4 to 8 — wait did I mention this in my post bc I feel like I did but I forgot XD) so I’m not feeling the best???

I DONT KNOW)
        I dont think you mentioned your dance schedule entirely in your post, just that you have dance and dance means busy hahaha. I would’ve thought with the amount of time you’re there you’re in competition! And yeah, my ultimate dream was totally to be a pro ballerina, *sighs* but that is super hard and we won’t talk about that now 😉 I totally get it, when I would come home from a full day of class I would just be completely drained. The appearance of my feet can totally attest to that!

    I didn’t know that May wasn’t your real name? #oblivious I love it, though. I’m a bit biased towards May because it’s the month I was born. And I really cannot believe you are 13. That is amazing!

  10. I’m literally thinking: MAY YOU’VE *ONLY* BEEN HERE FOR 6 MONTHS. WHAT. HOW. YOUR BLOG IS ALREADY SO AMAZING. WAIT IT’S BEEN JUST AS AMAZING SINCE THE FIRST DAY. REDO: YOUR BLOG IS ALREADY SIX MONTHS OLD?! *elegant tear drop of joy*

    How to be cool 101 w May: Wear sunglasses. And just BE cool. Omg I’m OBSESSED with honey nut cheerios. And I could live off of fruit. Maybe I can make fruit-a-tarians A THING. Eating only fruits is TOTALLY healthy. Ha AGE…I just turned 14 and I DON’T KNOW FOURTEEN JUST SEEMS SO MUCH…OLDER THAN THIRTEEN. Everyone’s always mocking thirteen year olds because they’re supposed to be the ‘I think I’m cool but I’m really not’ people. I also hate the word tween. To the ends of the earth. IT JUST REMINDS ME OF AWKWARDNESS. Urban dictionary says…”a girl ages about 9-14…too old for toys, but too young for boys.” EW EXCUSE ME I AM NOT A TWEEN STILL. Urban Dictionary should clue in about all the relationship drama…more at fourteen than I EVEN WANT. Another piece from Urban Dictionary:

    tween 1: LyK oMg, I aM jUsT gOiNg ThRu TeH hArDeSt TiMe Of My LyF…i RaN oUt Of EyEsHaDoW!!!!
    tween 2: OMG!!!! DO YOU NEED ME TO COME OVER FOR SUPPORT?!?!?!?!?!

    well this is getting offensive. *totally not laughing at that EVEN THOUGH IT’S MAKING FUN OF US* And another. This is really entertaining.

    “Tends to shop at stores like Hollister and American Eagle, because apparently that’s the style nowadays.” Wow thanks that’s only where all my clothes are from.

    • Aww, you’re so sweet! ❤ BUT YES SIX MONTHS CAN YOU BELIEVE IT??? :O

      FRUIT IS AMAZING AND ONE OF THE BEST THINGS EVER. And I know right! I mean obviously, to a 20-year-old, someone who's 13 is going to seem young… but that doesn't mean we're not mature??? Haha yup, TOO YOUNG FOR BOYS. *narrows eyes at the 13 yr olds who claim they're "dating"* (it's not even DATING they don't go out on a DATE they just say they're boyfriend and girlfriend)

      AHAHAHAHHAHA I LAUGHED SO HARD AT THAT THANK YOU FOR MAKING MY DAY 1000% BETTER

      Dude… I have NO clothes from American Eagle or Hollister. None.

      • HA YESSS the ‘we’re dating’ but ARE YOU. ARE YOU REALLY??? Tbh bookworms are probably relationship EXPERTS out of everyone in SOCIETY because let’s be real: How many books a year do we read that DON’T have ANY romance at all in them?? My answer is probably very close to zero XD. Hehe I’m kinda obsessed with fashion for bookworm!!

        Only slightly irrelevant question but how big is your school? I go (well went now) to a really small middle school (we’re talking 50 per a grade here; it’s a small town…) and surprisingly IT IS VERY CLIQUEY. VERY. VERY. CLIQUEY. Ha and I’m not *high pitched* popular, those days are long gone. #rejected #butnotreally #Ilikemypotterheadfriendsbetteranyways And enjoy your days in middle school because I AM TERRIFIED FOR HIGH SCHOOL. Mostly because my entire friend group chose to transfer to private high schools but ya know everything’s totallyyyyyy chill. NOT.

  11. Congrats on having blogged for 6 months and for having over 700 followers in that short period of time. I love all your blogs as you are always so funny and make me crack up and you have amazing content 100% of the time 🙂 Keep blogging Mango Queen 🙂

  12. I’M SORRY I HAVEN’T COMMENTED IN FOREVER I’ve been working on our collab blog post as well as a big surprise post going up tomorrow so I kind of fell off the face of the blogosphere.

    But super quick: if all the mangoes died, I’d automatically ditch being an engineer in college and find the nearest seed bank (which is where seeds of plants extinct or still thriving are held in case of an emergency) and we’ll take it from there but if they don’t allow us, we’ll find a way to make the mangos (although they’d have to be genetically modified and GMOs aren’t the nicest things in the world). xD

    And omg! I had a cringey personal blog before my blog to! Twins!

  14. Congratulations! I read the whole thing, I must say it took almost six months, but hey what else would you want from the mango queen herself haha<3 I have really enjoyed reading your posts lately, and I know you will reach 1000 followers in no time xx

  15. Congrats on your 6 month blogversary! I have read posts by a lot of extremely cringey 13 year old bloggers… but you aren’t one of them. (which is good, because if I had blogged when I was 13 I would have been a total mess). I totally think followers are linked to engagement/commenting/following other people. I don’t have as many followers as you, but I also comment far less than I should, partly because since I started my blog I’ve been busy finishing high school. Finding a balance between online and real life is hard. I love being online and blogging and my friends, but I guess I would generally say that if in doubt, go for real life, because that’s important.
    Also, I’ve been redesigning my blog. I thought about looking for free graphics, but ended up making my own with a combination of pixlr and be funky (which is basically pic monkey except I didn’t want an account). It doesn’t look as professional as yours, though. #oops ❤

    • Thank you! And haha, yeah, some 13yos aren’t the most mature, but that’s not the case for EVERYONE! Oh yes, interaction is KEY in getting your blog known/followed. Oh yes, online and real life is a hard thing to balance! I’m trying to focus more on real life but I keep coming back to online life… *sigs*

      Ooh, that’s awesome! And agh, I want to get into Pixlr because it seems pretty cool. And AWW YOU’RE SO SWEEEEET. ❤

(Not sorry) Creative response to my last question. The book of books, eh? Awesome. I sure would love to read it. 😁😁😁 There were some AMAZING (and weird!?) questions in this post. I want a library like the one in Beauty and The Beast too! I WANT one, you hear!?

    do you like my real name?:
    Yeah, it’s awesome. *slight eye roll* Okay, seriously, though, I always think of you as May and I don’t think I am physically capable of thinking of you as anything else. xD

    was your question answered?:
    Yes, actually! I think it was, anyway. I can’t remember too clearly what I asked. The one about the moooo-n cow? XD I don’t know …

    are you escaping from the spinach while you can?:
    Eh … not really? I don’t really HATE spinach, to be honest. I don’t like it, but I don’t hate it.

    and DID YOU ACTUALLY READ THIS WHOLE THING???:
    Mmhmm! Okay, maybe I skimmed over a couple questions because I am a Bad Mango, but … but … I did read most of it. So there’s that. XD
