Offline Dating

I quite enjoyed watching this video actually more than I thought I would. Online dating these days for my generation has made the old school ways of dating so much harder! As I was watching this video, I was nodding in agreement with a lot of the things these women said. And I think if I were in their spot, I probably would’ve done the same! We’re so thrown off by meeting strangers sometimes that someone we don’t know approaching us for a date is kind of uncomfortable. I know that that’s one of the reasons why my friends always prefer a mutual friend being the middleman (or woman) for setting up dates. I thought this was pretty entertaining to watch.

A Sushi Chef Reviews Cheap Store-Bought Sushi

I will admit that when I lived in Seattle and worked pretty close to a Whole Foods, I would sometimes buy their overpriced sushi because I couldn’t help my craving at the time! I haven’t actually done this in like two years now because I’ve really learned my lesson with bad sushi and that I shouldn’t sacrifice quality for convenience when it comes to sushi. Real life – sushi just isn’t an inexpensive food so once you get over that hump, you’re going to be okay splurging more for it at a restaurant.

Katie in the Kitchen

About a week and a half ago, my team took an offsite to Savory Kitchen in San Jose for a cooking competition and an early dinner! I’ve been on a few offsites with my team now, but this was probably the most fun. Plus, we’ve grown a lot in the last year so there are a lot more people to get to know. I wasted no time putting on my apron and promptly asking for a chef’s hat so that we could take this picture!

Our challenge? To construct a delicious flatbread. My team wasn’t very good at listening to instructions so instead of making one flatbread like every one else did, we made two different kinds. Maybe we thought we were bettering our chances, but it’s likely that we just misheard the instructions. Secondly, it is very hard to make a good flatbread with a glass of wine in hand. Even though our team lost, I was pretty happy with how tasty our flatbreads were. I would probably eat it again.

Via IMBOYCRAZY

By no means do I ever feel like I’m going to reach a point in my life where I feel like I know everything. Sure, I’ve had my fair share of experiences, but I love seeking advice from my girlfriends and vice versa, I love to dish out my own advice too (if they ask!) Sometimes these pieces of advice come in various funny forms. I was having brunch with Neel (who was visiting from Boston for the weekend) and Spencer on Saturday when all of a sudden Neel hopped up from the table and said to me, “Katie, I have something for you! It’s from Yelly!” YELLY?! She is our mutual friend as well, but she hadn’t been at brunch with us so I was very confused as to what was happening. He came from his car with…

Sassy Dance by 6-Year Old

I’ve been waiting all week to make the time to finally watch this and as expected, it didn’t disappoint. This sassy 6-year old completely owns this number in the best way possible. I feel bad for the two little girls that can’t keep up. :(

The Weekend: 5 Things

This was the first time that I was seeing Mandi since we learned of her engagement so as girls, we just couldn’t stop being excited! It also happened to be her fiance Eric’s birthday as well so it was a double birthday/engagement celebration over in Sausalito at Bar Bocce. It was the perfect day trip getaway for us.

The Hundreds Staff Interview: Alina

Every now and then I come across things on the internet about various people and I’m like “Yeah, cool they have traits like me. We have stuff in common” Then I come across this interview of some girl named Alina who I’ve never heard of in my life and I’m like “This girl IS me.”

We don’t look alike, but I’m pretty sure we’ve got the same vocabulary and that we’re the same person.

Psychology Behind Restaurant Menus

The Atlantic sat down with  FUDS: A Complete Encyclofoodia from Tickling Shrimp to Not Dying in a Restaurant author, Arthur Meyer, to discuss how restaurant menus trick us into making us hungrier and more loose with our wallet.

…tee hee author Arthur. I did that on purpose.

Never Liked It Anyway

When a relationship ends, every gift you’ve ever gotten from your ex becomes completely meaningless. Every urge to wear that leftover piece of clothing goes away. Every romantic gift that came with a sweet gesture just makes you rage. You could just toss it all out, or you could get a little something back for it. That’s where “Never Liked It Anyway” comes in. Instead of just dumping everything into the garbage, why not sell it?

There’s never any right way to get over a breakup, but if you haven’t found the solution yet, you might want to give this one a shot.

I don’t feel like trying out the site myself, but I’m curious about what kinds of goods you can get off of it. Readers, care to some digging for us?
