One Lovely Blog Award

award-2Today is another one of those non study abroad blog but purely Misadventures with Michael days, so compartmentalize whatever I’ve been saying about Italy and all that for now. Ellis from over at Ellis goes on Holiday just nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award. First off, thanks to Ellis for the nomination! I’ve loved following her blog, and we’ve worked together in the past when she wrote a guest post for me about Berlin a few months back. Now, in order to accept this award I have to share seven facts about myself and then pass on my own nominations. So here it goes.

  1. I’ve dreamt about the iced robin from Coastal Roasters in Tiverton three times since I’ve been studying in Italy.
  2. I’m so obsessed with passport stamps that I was willing to pay five euros at the San Marino tourist office to get mine stamped. Here’s an article about some other quirky stamps if you share my obsession.
  3. My roommates in Italy look at me funny every time I put my water bottle in the freezer in order to have ice water the next morning.
  4. Whenever I hear somebody is going to New York, I, without fail, recommend that they go to S’mac even if they’re lactose intolerant.
  5. My favorite food is buffalo chicken in any form (mac and cheese, panini, soup, dip, literally anything).
  6. For a fact not related to food (I miss America, I’m sorry): since I’ve arrived in Europe I’ve been getting a postcard from everywhere I go and writing about what I did on the back. I used to collect them but then never looked at them because they were blank and kind of boring. My cousin studied abroad in Chile a few years back and gave me a stack of postcards talking about what she did for Christmas, so I decided to try it out for myself.
  7. My favorite movie is Casino Royale and I’ve been going through a weird Eminem binge lately (and also an M&M binge).

Now, to pass on the favor, here are my nominations:
