One Lovely Blog Award | 4

Waking up to see that I’ve been nominated for things like the One Lovely Blogger Award always brings a smile to my face. Thanks so much to Stephen @ Stephen Writes and Emma @ A Dreamer’s Library for nominating me!!

  • Thank the person who nominated you for the award;
  • Share seven facts about yourself;
  • Nominate 15 other bloggers and inform them.

Does being nominated twice mean I have to share fourteen facts about myself instead of just seven? If you insist…

1. I’m a morning person. Not only do I enjoy mornings the most out of all the times of the day, but I also tend to automatically wake up early (relative early, of course–around 7:30am).

2. Jurassic Park is my favorite movie. I even dressed up as Laura Dern in Jurassic Park for a bop that was movie themed. Dedication. 

3. I’m a pretty terrible cook. Why make actual meals for myself when I can just eat variations of breakfast (a.k.a. eggs, toast, and oatmeal) for every meal?

4. I like to bake. However, baking is different. What’s not to love about sweet treats at the end? I also feel like mistakes are less noticeable while baking than while cooking actual meals (chocolate hides pretty much everything).

5. I can touch my nose with my tongue. When I was younger I assumed that everyone could do this, but apparently that isn’t the case. Now I use it as my go-to fun fact during awkward ice-breakers at orientations, group meetings, etc.

6. I have no idea what Hogwarts House I should be in. This became an actual dilemma when I visited the Platform 9 3/4 sign at King’s Cross Station in London and the Official Scarf Waver asked me what House I’m in. I ended up saying Gryffindor because I thought the maroon scarf would stand out more in the photo AND because I just couldn’t decide in that short moment. WHAT AM I.

7. I’m allergic to MANY things, not just nuts. Dogs, Cats, birch pollen, ragweed, grass… the list goes on and on!

8. My favorite food is pizza. I could eat pizza every night for a week (or two! or three!) and still not complain. I am ALWAYS in the mood for pizza.

9. I rarely watch Netflix during terms/semesters. Some people turn to Netflix when they want to wind down after a long day of working in the library, but for some reason I usually don’t watch Netflix during term time unless I’m watching it with friends. Maybe this explains why I’m always so behind on shows?

10. I love listening to music while I work. Some people prefer silence when they read or write, but I’d rather have at least some background noise while I’m working.

11. I have a bookstagram. If you’ve followed this blog for a while I feel like you probably already know this already, but I thought I would throw it out there just in case. It’s so much fun!

12. I am an avid list maker. Almost every day the last thing I do before heading to bed is make a to-do list for the next day. Even if I don’t check off everything on the list it’s still nice to wake up with a clear direction for the day. (Besides, what’s more satisfying than checking off tiny boxes?)

13. If I’m not drinking tea, I’m usually drinking hot water. Drinking plain hot water in a mug is something that people are either 100% on board with or think is the strangest thing they’ve ever witnessed. I love it.

14. I love mugs. Speaking of mugs, I adore them. I have far too many for one human being. But when will I stop acquiring new ones? (Never.)

Thanks again to Stephen and Emma for nominating me! ❤

  1. Thank you for the nomination! 💖

    I’ve never even thought to just drink hot water 😂

    Sometimes I have to listen to something when reading to block out other stuff, but it can’t be something that’ll distract me so I downloaded rain noises 😍 it’s the best

  2. I always love reading these little facts about yourself, Holly! I’m a morning person as well, I’m glad I’m not the only one waking up early like that even on holidays and days off work haha. I’m with you on pizza and eating breakfast variations at all times of the day, too, haha 🙂
    Lovely post! 😀

    1. Thanks, Marie! 🙂 People always think I’m SO strange for waking up early, but it’s when I’m most productive and content. I feel like this in the summertime especially– there’s nothing better than a quiet summer morning ❤

  3. Yay to a fellow morning person. 😊

    I am currently trying to figure out my allergies, they are no fun and I’m sorry to hear you have to deal with them as well. 😊

    I enjoy these types of posts, thanks.

  4. I loved reading all your answers! It’s a bit nuts (pun intended) that you’re allergic to so many things, but at least you’re scot-free with pizza. 😉 Great post, and congrats on the award!

  5. Hello Holly!
    I think I made those chocolate cookies before. They are super fun to bake and always popular when I share with a group 🙂
    I love waking up in the morning but find it so hard to get to sleep early!
    That is an awesome picture at the platform 9-3/4.
    Cheers and happy reading!
