Shaking Things Up

I would consider myself a serial dater. What is that you ask? Well, it’s someone who is constantly dating because (1) they don’t want to be lonely, (2) they have found someone new and/or better, (3) they literally can’t function without having someone around, or (4) you just kind of click with someone once a relationship is over and it kind of happens where now you are in a new relationship!

For me, I would say it’s number 4. Over the years, I literally haven’t come up for air…. Sorry that’s graphic…not in the way you’re thinking.ย  What I mean is that I haven’t really let myself be single in between dating. I just kind of moved on to the next convenient person (that sounds rude). To clarify I never used the guys, I literally just clicked with someone right away and thought…’what the heck, why not?’


But the past year and a half, I have been single…hold for applause.

This is the first time in a long time that I have been single and it has been freaking awesome. I don’t have to report to anyone. I can sleep on whatever side of the bed I want. I can also eat whatever I feel like. I’m free!

Don’t get me wrong, I miss sleeping next to someone (sometimes, preferably during winter).ย  Oh and I miss someone being there when times are tough. Yea, I have friends but it’s different when you are in a relationship with someone. It’s a different level of emotional support.

For right now, I’m just going to be single…and see how this plays out. I’m not trying to find someone nor am I rushing to get married. If the stuff happens, then it happens.

My point is, being a serial dater, like me, it doesn’t leave you any room to grow as a person. How are you supposed to ever find someone when you don’t even know who you are or what you want?ย  Being independent and single is a choice that I think everyone should make at some point in their life. It really helps you find out more about yourself and what you see in a future husband and/or wife!

Also, for people who have made it this far in the post, I will be doing a giveaway in the next couple of days on my Facebook page! SHhhhhh! So check out my Facebook Page here for more details….soon!

 

As Always,

New Years Resolutions

new-year

 

I’m not a person to make resolutions because I feel like they can be easily broken. I am more of a person that just changes my lifestyle to fit my needs for that time.

This year, I have decided that I would actually write out resolutions and share with you guys…also so you can hold me accountable. I’ll break it up into sections and than add the resolutions under each.


LIFE/HEALTH

  1. I will eat healthier.
  2. I will get into the best shape of my life.
  3. I will be happy.
  4. I will help more people.
  5. I will be a better person, just in general.

WORK

  1. I will continue working on my blog and create engaging content.
  2. I will reach 10,000+ blog followers for 2017.
  3. I will become very successful in my career.
  4. I will love my work.
  5. I will help people through my job.
  6. I will finish writing my book.


That’s all I have folks! I know I should have been doing this all along but I’m sticking to these!!!!

Let me know your resolutions and also if I need to add any to mine!

THANKS!

Boundaries

Sorry, it’s been a while! ๐Ÿ™‚

Let’s get to it!

Everyone has boundaries. Whether they are social, personal or relationship boundaries…you have them.

As for me, I have a lot boundaries. It could be my crippling anxiety or my comedic distrust in people, but it’s quite evident when you have crossed my boundaries.

Over Christmas break, I was unable to go home for the holidays! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

But I got invited to a girlfriend’s house, whom I spent Thanksgiving with. It’s always drinking and laughs, so I did not mind.

So my friend has a very fun and very sweet, youngerย  sister, whom I have totally clicked with. We text all the time and she’s just awesome.

Well, her fiance was there for Christmas. There is only one word to describe him and that’s ‘blah.’ย  He just not someone I would expect her to date. To each his own.


Anyway….they have been together for 2 years and will be married in 3 months. I don’t know if they are still going through a phase or what but he can’t keep his hands off her. It’s pretty uncomfortable. I get it when people are in love and they just like touching each other and what not. I get it.

I’m no prude but when you are at a family gathering, as this one was, you’d think people would be a little more conservative.ย  I’m not saying they should sit 10 feet away from each other but damn! They were constantly kissing and sitting in each others lap and she had a tiny skirt on. I mean, her 95 year old grandmother was there. I was literally so uncomfortable with it. It’s like they have taken each others independence.


In a relationship, I need my own space. Her mother, who is a lovely woman, keeps her mouth shut about pretty much everything said to them, “do you guys just ever stop touching each other?” Even if this woman knows whats up.

Anyway…he literally has to touch her at all times. Have you ever met an annoying couple like that?

Am I making this into something bigger than it is?

I Don’t Cook

There are probably a total of 3 things that I cook and 1 of those includes easy mac. And being snowed in yesterday (12inchs) I went in a downward spiral food absorption/binging. I’m not very proud of this but I did get a pretty awesome recipe out of it.

As I was looking in my cabinets and fridge for a decent meal, I thought everything was going to be lost. So I searched the internet for 3 ingredient recipes and I cam across one of my favorite and probably easiest recipes by far. Breaded chicken breasts.


 

Now, I know you are thinking. It’s just breaded chicken. Ha! No it’s easy as shit breaded chicken.

Ingredients

2 Eggs

2 Large Chicken Breasts

Ritz Crackers

Butter

Salt

Pepper

^Look at that! That is literally it!

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Whisk 2 eggs in a bowl.
  3. Mix crushed crackers, salt and pepper in a separate bowl (*I also added a little garlic).
  4. Dip your chicken breast into the eggs, then into the cracker combination.
  5. Place in pan.
  6. Sprinkle the leftover crushed crackers on top of chicken.
  7. Put 4 teaspoons (or how much you would like) of butter around the chicken in the pan.
  8. Pop that bitch into the oven for 40 minutes or until the juices run clear.

Then walah! You have breaded chicken! So freaking delicious! You can thank you me later!

Love,

T
