13 Reasons I Passed On Your Online Profile

While many of my friends have found love from online dating, it seems more and more like finding a needle in a haystack. Finding a normal guy in the real world is hard enough but give them the Internet to hide behind and the freaks come out to play. Ladies, try to dodge these bullets. Men, please take note that you are creeping us out, BIG TIME.

Ummm.. NO?! I do not want to be raped by you, strange man from the Internet. Thanks anyway.

image

Did you just admit this on the Internet for everyone to see?! I don’t know what’s worse. The fact that you think this is acceptable to put out into the world or the fact that you actually believe this.

You cannot be that excited about everything. Enough with the exclamation points !!

image

Sarcasm is really hard to pull off online. Unless you’re serious… in which case I am even less interested.

image

You lost me at “I’m 18”

image

The fact that you said, “I don’t bite” makes me think you do. 

image

Self explanatory.

image

Gee, I hope so.

It started out so well and then BAM. Nothing attracts a woman like bringing STDs into the conversation.

image

This is just a personal pet peeve of mine. Yes, I get it. We all need water and air and stuff to live. It’s not that clever.

image

It doesn’t bother me the amount. What bothers me is someone who is willing to put their salary on the Internet for strangers to see. That’s weird, no?

image

I like dogs.

You got it right the second time! Know the difference between “you’re” and “your.”

What sends you running for the hills?

Power Play: A Review

I had no idea what to expect when I signed up for this class, and this was not it! The class was mostly stretching, balance, and abs. I was pretty sore from previous work out classes when I came in so this was exactly what I needed. Loved the use of the yoga balls and weights but the balance boards were crazy difficult. I wasn’t 100% sure I was doing everything right but when I was, I felt it.

Recipe: Buffalo Chicken Cupcakes

Hello, my name is Cara and I am the worst cook ever. I really never cook. Partially because I hate to clean up afterwards and partially because anything good requires too many ingredients. However, sometimes it becomes necessary to cook.

For example, you may be invited to a pot luck, you may not want to spend money on ordering out, or your job may request that you bring in a food form your heritage. For me, it was the last one. Seeing as I don’t recognize with a particular heritage, I decided to go with something American. What can be more American than buffalo wings and cupcakes?

Here’s what you need:

  • 2 cans of canned shredded chicken
  • Bottle of hot sauce
  • 4 tablespoons of Ranch dressing
  • Pillsbury pie crust
  • Shredded cheese of your choice
  • Cupcake tin
  • Oven

Preheat the over to 400˚.

In a bowl, mix the chicken the hot sauce and the Ranch dressing in a delicious concoction of goodness.

Take the pie crust and cut into squares. Line each square in one of the cupcake tins. Make sure to have a little bit more than the size of the tin so you can have room to cover the cupcake.

Fill the pie crusts with your concoction and then close up the cupcake with the leftover pie crust.

Place the covered cupcakes in the oven for about 15 minutes. Periodically peak to make sure it’s cooking nicely. You should smell the hot sauce!

With about 3 minutes left, take the cupcakes out and sprinkle some shredded cheese on top. Put back in the oven and in a few minutes they are done!

If I can make this taste good, anyone can. Good luck!

Core RxN: A Review

First things first… if you plan to take a class at this studio, make sure you give yourself PLENTY of time to find the place. The address is super confusing and the studio is hidden behind a bunch of stores and a huge building. It was only by miracle and walking into 2 wrong buildings that I was able to find it!

As for the class, it was a lot of fun and very intense. The studio is known for spinning but I tool a core class that seemed more total body to me. You used the TRX, sand weights, kettle bells, and more. The teacher was super fun and motivating and really gave good moderations for people who were new. I had a lot of fun and felt incredibly sore the next couple days!

Boxing: A Review

Holy crap, this studio was gorgeous. You ride up this dinky elevator only to be brought to this gorgeous studio. Body Space Fitness has everything. There were treadmills, spin bikes, rowing machines, ropes, TRX, sleds, and more. I was very impressed.

I was there for boxing and the class was very small - just me and two others. It was essentially a private lesson but he worked us hard. I mentioned that I had taking a kick boxing class once before and the teacher took that to mean I knew what I was doing… I did not. Even though he didn’t explain everything as much as I would have liked, I still worked my ass off and got an incredible workout.

You can tell that Body Space Fitness is a place for everyone. While my class was filled with beginners, another class was going on nearby called “Training for Warriors” which made CrossFit look like a walk in the park. You should definitely check this place out.
