I got completely owned

Jan 20, 2016, 2:50 PM |

Taking into account that this was my first 30 minute time control after a series of bullets that I played, I think a large part of my problem was I wasn't taking my time with my moves. However, with being said, where did all this specifically go horribly wrong? I am not quite sure what I did to get myself into this horrible position. Clearly, I was out played. Hopefully, one of you guys can help me figure out my mistakes in this one?

Maybe instead of 7. a3 I should have went with 7. Bxf4?
As always, any feedback is greatly appreciated!!! <3
