Its Summer! I’m Back! June 15, 2012

WOW the last time I posted on here was right before two of my best friend’s 21st birthdays and yes that weekend was “crayyy” as i put it. hahaha My friend’s Kelsey and Karissa are best friend’s and their birthdays are like 2 days apart and so we all got together in the city(San Fran) and went out Thursday, Friday, and Saturday that weekend.  On Thursday we went to this club called Temple and it was Ritual Dubstep that night. Amazing!  On Friday we went to the Mission and went to this Martini bar called Blondies which has the most amazing Martinis.  Over 25 different types to choose from and you get a huge glass with the extra in a glass! That night they had live music as well and we danced the night away.  The next day we went to House of Air, a trampoline filled warehouse where you can jump and jump and play trampoline dodgeball!  We all got so into it we actually got a little pissed at the kids that we were playing against. hahaha  That night we went out in the Mission again and ended up have to run to the muni so we didn’t miss it…that was not fun.

A San Fran Halloween!!! November 8, 2011

Filed under: Food,My Life — kateliveslaughsloves @ 10:14 pm

Last week was Halloween and I have to say that it was one of the best Halloween’s I have ever had! My friends and I got a huge group together and went out in SF.  We started off the night hanging out at a couple of friend’s apartments in the Sunset getting ready, dancing, and of course taking shots of lime vodka!  After missing a couple L trains we finally got one and started heading to the Castro.  Once we got to the Castro, we realized how crazy it is on Halloween! Cops everywhere, costumes everywhere, people everywhere…we couldn’t handle it and got right back on the L towards Polk st.  Once we made it to Polk st. we headed to Big Foot Lodge where they were having a bingo tournament. This place is so cool, they have taxidermy on the walls and Yogi bear cartoons playing on the tvs.  After playing a few rounds of bingo, we headed across the street to Cinch where we got $4 shots and super strong drinks. *thumbs up*  The last bar we went to was by far my favorite! Vertigo.  They have a great DJ all the time, a fairly large dance floor, great drinks(pineapple infused vodka actually had pineapple chucks in it yummmm) and an covered outdoor area!  After the bars closed a few of us went and got THE BEST DONUTS EVER at Bob’s Donuts and then pizza after.  Luckily I did some research and found a cab company that was giving out free cab rides on Halloween, and we got our cab back to the Sunset for free!  Such a great night with my closest friends! Cant wait to keep having great nights to remember!

Here’s some pics from the night!

Rain Rain Go Away…. June 7, 2011

Filed under: Books,Food,Movies,Music,My Life,Television — kateliveslaughsloves @ 7:20 am

I cannot believe how long it has taken me to update on here! So much has happened in the last 3 months, I literally don’t know here to start. This post might have to come in stages because its going to be a long one. lets start at the very beginning…a very good place to start (haha name that movie)!  At the end of March, I went to VEGAS with Jessica and we had an amazing time! We stayed at the Polo Towers on the strip, right next to Planet Hollywood!  We saw the lions at MGM Grand, the water show at the Bellagio, stayed out till 6am, saw Fergie, and went to the best club (Chateau) and saw Flo Rida perform for freee!  After Vegas we drove all the way back to Santa Barbara, surprised Kyle (AKA got free cupcakes) and then I hung out in Santa Barbara for a few days and got to see old friends and seriously had an amazing, relaxing Spring Break!  April was a crazy school month, started to get “Senioritits” even though I didn’t graduate (got a whole nother year) 😦  ON EASTER SUNDAY, I had to go on a Geology Fieldtrip, which I was pretty pissed about, but it ended up being a lot of fun! We went to Pt. Lobos and spent the whole day in the woods, at the beach, walking around learning about ROCKS.  At the end of the month, I headed down to L.A. for Kyle’s Graduation from Pepperdine! I got lucky and got to stay down there for 5 days, so it was like a mini-vacation!  On Friday I went shopping at the Grove with Kyle’s Fam, saw Rob Lowe and Julia Stiles (LUMEN!!!), saw Kyle get awarded for being awesome in his specialty (Sorry I forget the correct name), watched like 5 movies, saw Kyle Graduate on the windiest day ever, got my computer stolen (yep I know), made a bombbb dinner, and got to relax and hang with my favorite person for 5 whole days!  MAY, ohh the month of May, fun-filled May.  Sister’s and Brother’s b-days, Gigantes Game (Cinco de Mayo), Finals, Celebrating (graduations, friends returning from Europe), Jazz Festival (Sheryl Crow), Movies–Bridesmaids, Pirates (twice), Hangover II, etc.  And now, its only 6 days into June, and it’s already been the craziest month out of them all.  Kyle came to Sonoma before he jetted off to North Carolina for the summer, my Grandparents from New York came to Sonoma for my Brother’s Graduation, my Bro graduated high school, saw X-Men: First Class (BLAHHHH), have eaten some amazing food (Sugo-Petaluma, Old Chicagos-Petaluma, Saddles-Sonoma, Harvest Moon-Sonoma), Gloria Ferrar, being with family and staying up late with friends, all I need is the sun!!!!

Today was non-stop.  Woke up at 6:30 to take Grandparents to the airport.  Got home around 10am, watched an episode of Justified (MUST WATCH SHOW!!! TIMOTHY OLYPHANT!!!!), went to Petaluma with Erin and saw Water for Elephants (SOOO good, read the book too!!), came home and went to Napa with the Sis to go to TARGET!  Got home and went to Haci, and Micheocana with Kris, David, Kels, and Bonnie and watched Duplex! “ohhhh Blueberries….”  Came home to find the Giants game still on, didn’t end till 5 min ago, bottom of the 13th Giants 5 Nationals 4. BOO YAHHH.

March Madness March 15, 2011

Filed under: Food,My Life — kateliveslaughsloves @ 12:01 am

this month is almost half over, but it has already been a crazy, amazing month!

The first week of this month, Kyle was in Sonoma/SF for his spring break and I finally got to see him, as well as some of his amazing friends from LA!  We had a dinner party at his house, and I made my orange pound cake and a spaghetti squash greek salad!  We caught up, played catchphrase and had lots of laughs.  The next day I met Kyle and Brittany for lunch and shopping.  We ate at the Slanted Door and then went to Westfields.  Jessica was also in town that weekend and we met up for a drink Friday night and caught up!  The next night Sierra, Katie, David, Kris, and I drove to SF to celebrate Alyse’s 22nd birthday! We started at Hooters and then went to Polk St. It was a blast!

This last week was pretty crazy. I had two midterms, one in my Art and Architecture of Islam class, and another in my Geology class.  The art one went well but the Geology one….ehhh get back to me on that one.  At least his curve is nice and if I get a “C” I will be more than happy!  After my midterms I was ready to get wild, and on Saturday, David, Kris, Nikki, and I went to SF for the St. Patty’s day Parade and Festival! It got pretty crazy, but it was soo much fun!  Lets just day I plan on taking it easy this week. 🙂

 

Things i’m looking forward to:

  • Hanging out with Brooke tomorrow 🙂
  • my Geology Fieldtrip on Sunday
  • VEGAS in 10 days! with Jessica!!!
  • Santa Barbara in 12 days!
  • Spring Break!
  • Kyle’s Graduation ahhhhhhh!

Mojitos and Margaritas! February 10, 2011

Filed under: Food,Movies,My Life — kateliveslaughsloves @ 8:20 am

It’s almost the end of the third week of school, I can’t believe it! SF State is awesome! I’m taking four classes this semester and they are going great so far!  I’ll tell you all about them!

  • Art and Architecture of Islam: I’m so excited for this class! we are talking in-depth about the Dome of the Rock, and the beautiful art and architecture of the Islamic culture. There are three hallmarks of the Islamic culture, and they are calligraphy, geometric symbols, and floral designs.  I’m very interested to learn a lot in this class!
  • Rock Music since the Mid-1960s: Just added this class last-minute, last week and I love it! All we have been talking about is the Beatles and listening to songs like, Strawberry Fields Forever, Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, etc! I love it
  • Art of South India: This class is super interesting so far! We started at the beginning of time with the Indus Valley Civilization and now we are talking about the stupas at Sanchi, with are said to have some of the remains of Buddha in the center.  There are all kinds of cool stories called jatakas, about the previous lives of the Buddha.
  • Geology of National Parks: COOLEST CLASS EVER!!! by teacher is freaking awesome! So stoked on this class! We get to go on two field trips, one to Point Reyes, and the other to Point Lobos! Cant Wait!

Last weekend was pretty eventful too!  Friday night, Kris, David, Bonnie and I went to La Casa for dinner, and I had Fajitas and a raspberry Margarita! they were soo good! YUM. After, we went to EDK for drinks and dessert. I got a mojito and we all shared ice cream sandwiches dipped in chocolate, with raspberry and caramel dipping sauces! AMAZING! Saturday night, I went out for Brooke’s 22nd Birthday! Sierra and I met up with Brooke, her boyfriend, Melissa, Megan, Jenna, Maddy, and some of Brooke’s friends from Napa and we did went to the Swiss and Town Square!  It was a blast!!

  • p.s. I saw the Roommate and it sucked!

Bittersweetness November 15, 2010

Filed under: ART,Cooking,Food,Movies,My Life — kateliveslaughsloves @ 7:31 am

the reason i made the title of this post bittersweetness is because the past couple weeks have been just that, bittersweet.

 

I have been working a lot and doing a bunch of school work, but still managing to have a social life.  The last week of October was amazing and horrible all at the same time.  I drove down to SF for the day and went to the De Young with kelsey for the Post-Impressionism exhibit!  It was breathtaking, amazing. I got to see Van Gogh, Cezanne, Monet, Seraut, Degas, etc, some of my favorite artists.

That evening we watched the Giants game and made nachos and an amazing drink with tequilla, lime juice, lemon juice, and sparkling cranberry-apple juice. It was an amazing day spent with great friends.

Upon returning to Sonoma the next morning, bad news struck. My Grandma, who had been sick for a while, passed away that morning. I didn’t know how to deal with it, I still don’t.  No one close to me has ever died.  I am heartbroken, but don’t want to be weak in front of my family, or anyone.  I was able to talk with friends who were there for me, which helped a lot.  I feel like I was supposed to just stay home and cry, but I couldn’t.  I needed to be with people, which I think helped me cope and deal with this a lot better than if I didn’t have people there for me.

I love my friends!! I hope they know that I am grateful for them!

That weekend was Halloween and i decided to just stay home and me mellow.  My friends Eva and Brooke came over and we watched SCREAM! It was filmed in Sonoma, which I thought was soooo cool so we had to watch it, and they had both never seen it!  I still need to see the 2nd and 3rd and cannot wait for the 4th to come out in April!

The first week in November was pretty uneventful, one of my friends moved to mexico for 6 months! I already miss him soo much, but know that he is having a blast and i cant wait to go visit him, hopefully!

Something that my friends and  I cannot get enough of is Just Dance 2 for wii!!

It is sooo much fun and actually a good workout! Alyse, Erin, Kris and I played two days in a row a couple weeks ago and then Erin, Kris, and kelsey and I played again on Friday! SOO FUNNNN!

 

This week was pretty busy, I had a paper due on Wednesday in Art, and had to complete some Work Experience hours.  I worked most of the week, went to my friend Michelle’s Jewelry Party Saturday, and babysat that night.  i also made some cookies for my Grandpa, his favorite, my great-grandmother’s hamburger cookies.

Yesterday, I received some amazing news! I’ve been accepted to SF State for spring semester!! HUUUUU WHAAAAA yaya so stoked!

 

This week is busy once again, and Harry Potter is coming out! Thursday at Midnight, already got my ticket.
