      Mischief, Fun, and Mayhem : Fun Times in NYC

      By atrent · March 24, 2010
      These are just a few pics of us joking around after a free screening on 42nd street.  We passed by Ripley's Believe it or Not and got a bit carried away.


      The Fight: The kiss:

      He just couldn't  handle my chocolate shake:


      And after I exhausted myself with my new friend here I decided to take some pics of some controversial art on a billboard around Time Square.  I remember seeing something about it on the news.


      Do these images offend you? Be honest.

      Free Screening: How To Train Your Dragon

      By atrent · March 24, 2010
      Tonight my friends and I hit up the AMC on 42nd street to see a free advance screening of  How To Train Your Dragon.  Besides the giggling of a few dozen kids it was a pretty good movie.  We didn't get to see it in 3D but all in all it was a fun filled night.  Something to take your kids, cousins, nephew, and nieces. 
      Of course we couldn't limit ourselves to one movie so we sneakily made our way into Repo Man which was a good movie.  There was a surprise twist at the end that definitely left me satisfied, and seeing it made everything fall into place.  Something you should see.  It was action packed, bloody, had tons of irony, and was humorous but serious at the same time.  One tip, never get organs on credit.  Giving it back isn't going to be as easy or painless and there's going to be twitching...then you sort of die. Enjoy!

      RedBook Beauty Bash 2010

      By atrent · March 22, 2010
      Hey.  I'm going to be trying something new.  My gal pals and I always go to events, movie screenings,  beauty bash's, and tons of free events.  I wanted to make a blog that highlights all the fun things there are to experience in NYC on the cheap, so lets beginning.

      Saturday March 20th was the RedBook Beauty Bash at the Metropolitan Pavilion.  From 11am - 4pm women had the opportunity to sip, sit, and relax for a day of cocktails, swag bags, and pampering.  My friend and I arrived about a hour and a half before the event began so we were right in front. Of course we made some friends on the line.  Don't you love when women share event secrets? I do.  We definitely left there with more then we bargained for.  The event was beautiful.  Upon enter we arrived in an all white room, with white flowing curtains, decorated with huge glass jars filled to the brim with bright green apples.  They had everything.  From shoulder massages, to mini manicures, eye treatments, a brow bar, mini make overs, and hand massages to name a few.  Throughout the event we sipped on Blood Orange Bellinis, needless to say I left there a little tipsy.  We even tried some organic fruit and vegetable juice blend used for cleansing and losing weight.  The admission to the event was $15 but we bought the tickets a few days in advance and paid only $10.  It was worth ever cent. I left there with a mini manicure, nail polish provided by Essie and a soothing shoulder massage.  Heaven on earth.  I even rubbed noses with Daisy Fuentes who was promoting her new book.  All in all an awesome good time.

      Below are some pictures of the goodies from Redbook's Beauty Bash Swag Bag!!  Enjoy :)

      My 2010 Horoscope: The rise of the Aries

      By atrent · January 1, 2010
      Even though I wont say I believe in horoscopes I love reading them, especially when they're way off. I think its funny. I like this one. Its very true to life for me and its an inspiration. I like it mostly because its saying that 2010 is going to be an awesome year for me and my fellow Aries brethren..lol.. This is definitely a year of change for me. I'm sick and tired of the same ole day to day. I'm ready for a career change. I feel more determined than ever to make a change. I'm 23 going on 24.. going on 17..lol. I feel positive about my life right now and everything has fallen into place so perfectly and I have been blessed. Yes I've been lazy. I know I should have been using my talents instead of admiring those who already are. My gift for writing has been a passion of mine since I've been wearing jumpers and the light up sneakers with the glitter. Its time to show and tell the world my story. Open Ears. Open Hearts. Open minds. I hope you listen.... I mean read. :) Happy New Year everyone.

      Career Move Dilemma: Comfortable or Lazy?

      By atrent · October 6, 2009
      I go through the same routine week to week. Work.. work..work... lounge..work... relax... party... drink....work. I graduated from school and still have yet to get a better job. The job I have now isn't the greatest. Sometimes it boring and other times it can stress me out. But I don't blame anyone for my laziness. I'm comfortable. Being comfortable is a dangerous thing. I'm the kind of person that takes action when there is no other choice. Its like I keep saying I'm going to leave and search for something better. But instead of inviting change in, I lock it out. Thousands of dollars spent on school and I worked my butt off for that money. I don't know what I'm scared of. I love writing and eating. I also love interacting with and talking to people. I love being active and making someone smile even if it's for a brief moment. But why cant I get out of this funk? Sometimes I think I need to just get up and quit so that I have no other choice. Not the smartest move, right? I feel deep down that the perfect job is out there for me but it isn't going to find me I have to hunt it down. Every time I get to an application online I make excuses. My resume needs to be updated and revamped. I need a cover letter. Are they ever going to get my application? I'm just one in millions of people looking for a job. What are the odds that they'll choose me. I know its excuse after excuse. But I have to put myself out there. Show the world who Anya is...... But maybe I'm not ready for them to see me yet.

      Love: Time after Time

      By atrent · September 6, 2009
      <p>So yesterday was my anniversary. 3 months, not a year or anything. But I don't get the whole thing behind the anniversary. The whole bit about the first year is you have to get the person a paper gift or something. Whatever. Maybe its because my relationships never lasted that long so there was never a reason to celebrate. Which sounds pretty crappy but isn't. When your in a relationship it feels good, right? Everything is going well. You're in "love". But then something happens. You look past the singing birds and floating hearts and realize that it's not that great. He doesn't call you. Or maybe he calls you too much. He doesn't take you out or doesn't show you enough attention. It could be anything.
      But then I think about how busy life can get and sometimes you need an excuse to look at the person you love and do something nice for them. Its like birthdays and Christmas and all those other man made holidays where you send a gift or buy a card. It reminds you to treat the person you love special even though we should be doing things everyday to show our appreciation. But look I get it. There aren't enough hours in the day or days in a year to get everything we want accomplished. I'm not judging you. Well anyway tell me what you think. What are some good ideas for couples to do for there anniversary? If your the traditional type then you can even break it down by 6 month, a year, 2nd year.....</p>

      Interesting Fact : Zodiac

      By atrent · August 18, 2009
      I just found out I was born in the year the Cougar..LOL.. I mean Tiger. Supposedly this describes me. According to Wikipedia I'm a fire Tiger.
      Tiger (Yang, 3rd Trine, Fixed Element Wood): Unpredictable, rebellious, colorful, powerful, passionate, daring, impulsive, vigorous, stimulating, sincere, affectionate, humanitarian, generous. Can be restless, reckless, impatient, quick-tempered, obstinate, selfish, aggressive, unpredictable.
      I got this from another site. The search continues......
      Tiger people are sensitive, given to deep thinking, capable of great sympathy. They can be extremely short-tempered, however. Other people have great respect for them, but sometimes tiger people come into conflict with older people or those in authority. sometimes Tiger people cannot make up their minds, which can result in a poor, hasty decision or a sound decision arrived at too late. They are suspicious of others, but they are courageous and powerful. Tigers are most compatible with Horses, Dragons, and Dogs.
      Friends, family, strangers. What do you think? Whats your zodiac year?

      Interracial Dilemma

      By atrent · August 18, 2009
      Color...Blind (8-18-09)
      Black and white
      Sometimes Gray
      Hate in words
      Come my way
      White in flesh
      Brown in Skin
      Internal love
      Springs within
      Outward appearances
      Seems like I have a lot going on. Doesn't it? I am a black woman. I am 50% of an interracial relationship. Why does that bother you? It doesn't bother me in the least. Over the weekend I was disgusted at things that occurred. Black men should be uplifting black women not putting them down. Why are people so ignorant? My life is mine to live. How about you stop worrying about me and find some happiness of your own. If your not ignorant then this doesn't apply to you. For all the haters. You push me so that I better myself, mentally and physically, little by little each day. Thank you.

      Psychic Encounter

      By atrent · August 18, 2009
      I remember walking one day and this psychic asked me if I wanted a reading. I said no. I was talking on the phone I think. I was crossing the street and she decided to 'read' me anyway. She told me even though I smile like everything is okay that I was covering up something inside. Something she said about me not being happy. All I could do was say I'm happy with a smile. I felt kind of weird saying it because it was like I was saying it more for myself then for her. Then I was angry. I felt offended like who the hell are you to tell me I'm not happy. Then I started going through the things in life that made me happy. I had a job. I had friends. I was in my last semester at school and I was feeling good. But maybe she was a little right. Maybe there was something I was hiding inside and even though I didn't want to believe what she said it was true. I don't consider myself an overly religious person but I consider myself a spiritual person and I believe in God. I also believe in the supernatural ,things that are unexplained by reason or science. I'm not saying I believe in every corner side psychic but some people can sense things. I mean humans have instincts and feelings. But looking back now I think the psychic was right, just a little. There was something inside that I was covering up with a smile. I think sometimes events happen in our life that make us stronger. My close friends know what I'm talking about. One friend found out after a drunken tearful night of white wine overdose. LOL. That wine is no joke, seriously. But life constantly changes and eventually good things happen to good people. Good things have been happening to me.

      I've been pretty lazy these past few months. I'm just taking everything in. Whats so wrong with taking some time to enjoy the accomplishments in my life. I graduated in May, Sianara Bklyn College. Konnichiwa real world. Everybody is asking what do you want to do next? Have you been looking for a new job? And as messed up as it is I haven't really started. I'm in a dangerous place now. I'm just do damn comfortable. Everything is good. Good not great and I'm lazy. For the first time today I realized that I'm scared of success. It sounds stupid right? I think so. But I'm scared of change and what new things will bring, the good and the bad. I haven't been able to make the first step. It's funny. I feel positive like everything will work out for me eventually but I haven't made the first move. My passion is writing. So I should be writing everyday. I don't. I want to be a food critique and I'm not sure how to do that. There's no school for that. Just classes. Very expensive classes that meet once a week. I'm getting there. Slowly but surely.
