On Wednesday, I finally made it to the Asian Art Museum in SF to see the Secrets of the Maharaja exhibition as well as Sanjay Patel’s Deities, Demons, and Dude’s with ‘Staches.

The Maharaja exhibit was amazing!  All the robes and jewelry that the royalty of India wore; I’m talking diamonds, rubies, emeralds, pearls, silver, gold…and all the hookahs and spice jars and games they played.  The exhibit also showcased the decoration and adornments of the elephants for when they were decorated for processions and ceremonial events.  I highly recommend this exhibition.  It’s only $12 for students and $17 for adults to see the Maharaja exhibit as well as the rest of the museum and you get the audio for free!

I’ve just recently become interested in more contemporary Indian and Asian art from the Contemporary Asian Art class that I took last semester and Sanjay Patel’s animations of the Hindu gods are sa-weeet! I’m tellin ya they are so cool! I bought the poster book of them and have been showing my friends and looking through it non-stop!  Here’s what it looks like:

sooooo awesome!

So, after the Museum, my friend Makiko and I met up with Kyle and took muni to the Castro for Happy Hour!  First we went to this club/bar called the Lookout. We sat outside, upstairs and had a great view of the Castro Streets below us.  We got Margaritas and Chips and guac there and after headed to Harvey’s and once there Makiko and I ordered pear ciders and Kyle got a Bloody Mary.  I was starving by this point and I ordered a Chicken Tostada, which was amazing and my friends took the liberty of devouring it with me. 🙂  On our way back to the Muni station we got cookies at HOT COOKIE.  best snickerdoodle ever!

It’s only a week into 2012 and I already have had a nice relaxing four day vacation and a New Year’s I will never forget!

On New Year’s I went to Sea of Dreams, with Santigold, Beats Antique, and Aman Tobin! All of my favorite people accompanied me and we had the time of our lives!! It was a night I will never forget! Waking up in SF the next morning was amazing! It was a clear, sunny, beautiful day and we went and got coffee and breakfast at Java Beach and spent the afternoon at the beach! I can’t wait for this year! It will hopefully be a big year with lots of amazing adventures!

Today I just got back from a quick vacation to Soda Springs!  Unfortunately there was absolutely no snow but it was still freezing cold.  We drove to Boontown, NV the first day and went to Cabela’s, the biggest outdoor shop ever! We went shooting and played games and cooked all our meals! It was a nice trip with some great friends!  I wish there was snow though so we could have played in the snow and gone snowboarding!! Hopefully we will get back up there once it snows!

New season of Shameless started tonight! Cant wait for this season it is gonna be great!

I also cannot wait to begin the The Girl Who Played With Fire, I just finished the 1st book and saw the new movie (INSANE)!!! Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me, an Xmas gift from my sister is another book i can’t wait to begin!

I think I am going to start a new thing where at the end of every post I list my 5 favorite songs of the week, which will make me post more and listen to more amazing music!

So this week my 5 favs are:

  1. Take Care feat. Rihanna – Drake
  2. Creator – Santigold
  3. The Best Thing I Never Had – Beyonce
  4. Do Ya Thang – Rihanna
  5. Set Fire to the Rain – ADELE

New Years Resolutions January 4, 2012

Filed under: My Life — kateliveslaughsloves @ 5:32 pm

Happy 2012 everyone! My friend shared this on her blog and it is just too good! I want to accomplish all these resolutions!

Find full article here by Jessie Rosen.

20 New Year’s Resolutions For 20-Somethings

  1. Before you status update, Tweet, Tumble or Instagram, pause and say to yourself, “is it entirely necessary that I share this morsel of thought with my entire social network?”and if the answer is not, “yes, I absolutely must,”then step away from the Internet.
  2. Know which candidate you’re going to vote for in the upcoming presidential election, and know why.
  3. Enough with the 14-day juice cleanses. If you want to lose a little weight quickly, eat less and exercise like crazy. If you want to lose a lot of weight slowly, do whatever Jennifer Hudson did.
  4. If you really like the person you’re hooking up with and would like them to be your boyfriend/ girlfriend, find a way to tell them, and hope for the best. If you don’t and wouldn’t, stop.
  5. Find a way to save approximately 300 dollars and spend it on a flight to see a friend or family member who lives far away.
  6. Please stop liking the Kardashians, all of them. It’s not helping anyone, least of all the Kardashians.
  7. Spend less than or equal to the money you earn each month.
  8. Wear clothes that fit you, especially to work.
  9. Call someone on the phone at least once a week, and speak to him or her for at least ten minutes.
  10. Start preparing now to get over the fact that Facebook is probably going to change again in six months. You’re not going to deactivate your account. You don’t know how.
  11. Wait 30 seconds before you look up a fact you can’t remember on your phone, and try to remember it using your brain. This is what the olden days were like.
  12. Replace one terrible reality show you’re currently watching with one wonderful scripted show currently available on television.  Swap suggestion:Real Housewives of Anywhere for HBO’s Enlightened.
  13. Try that food you think you don’t like but have never actually tried, unless it’s brussels sprouts. They really don’t need any more attention.
  14. Cut one person out of your life who you truly do not like and add one person who you truly do. Note: not on Facebook, on Earth.
  15. If you’re still blacking out regularly, you should stop.
  16. Volunteer once over the next 90 days.  You’ll feel really good about it, and probably end up volunteering again over the next 275.
  17. Tell someone who you love that you love them on a more regular basis. To their face, not in a text.
  18. Back up your entire online life onto an external hard drive, especially your photos.
  19. Crap or get off the pot. This applies to whatever thing you’re not doing that you should just sack up and do already.
  20. And in the eternal words of Tom Haverford, “TREAT YO SELF!”
