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!

Just bought this song by the Temper Trap and i remember loving it in 500 Days of Summer but I never knew who it was…

“a moment of love, a dream, a loud, a kiss, a cry, our rights, our wrongs…wont stop till its over…wont stop till you surrender”

The past two days have been super memorable because I spent them with great friends and just having a blast. Yesterday (Friday) my friend Andy from L.A. came up to SB to visit and Jessica, Barby, Andy , and I all went bowling and i think had one of the best times I’ve had bowling. EVER.  After bowling we walked to Freebirds in the rain…not a great idea but sooooo worth it!  In between we had a mini dance party too.  And then today I didn’t do anything amazing but I pretty much had a blast with my bestie/roomie! We drove downtown around 10pm to get dinner and then got pinkberry, came back played scrabble and scatagories, and pretty much had a super fun night being random and silly!

I tried watching The Godfather today but it is just too dang long (2hrs and 57 min), so I am just going to finish it tomorrow!  Speaking of tomorrow: HOMEWORK ALL DAY! STUDY ALL DAY! NO PROCRASTINATION ALLOWED!  seriously I need to stick to this because I need to get good grades on my midterm and test that are this week!

Some New Favs:

  • Marie Claire March 2010: Jennifer Garner and Jessica Biel  on the cover!
  • Change and Stop Me by Daniel Merriweather
  • Around the Bend by The Asteroids Galaxy Tour
  • Raise the Fire to the Third Bar Snow Patrol and Martha Wainwright
  • and I just saw Forgetting Sarah Marshall for the first time the other night! LOVED IT!!

Ok, I am so excited for today, because I am going to see Lil Wayne, T-Pain, and Gym Class Heroes with my girls, Brooke and Jenn!! So excited! It is going to be amazing! I pretty much love Lil Wayne!!!  I can’t wait for the car ride there and waiting before the show, and everything in between! I LOVE CONCERTS!! Last summer I went to so many I can hardly keep count!  But I loved every one of them! I met Natasha Bedingfield, Kate Voegele and The Veronicas on my Birthday, plus the show was amazing and I got to see it with my two best friends, Kyle and Jessica!  I saw Augustana, Jon McLaughlin, John Mayer and Colbie Callait, Sara Bareilles, Maroon 5, Counting Crows, Duffy, Lenka, Gavin Degraw, Katy Perry, David Archuletta, Girls Like Boys, and Jesse McCartney!  All Amazing!!!!!

I definitely have to get my homework done before we leave because I have class the next day, and will be home hella late!
