Step 37 – Don’t give up on this year yet
  We are in the middle of August and that means that over 7 months of this year are gone. But the good news is that 5 of them are still left. It’s almost half of the year! 5 months is roug...

1.        First of all, I think that a person who gets on a train and keeps their backpack on (when it’s crowded) should be slapped in the face right away. What&rs...

Come For A Walk With Me, Part 2: Dumbo, Brooklyn Bridge Park

Surfing
When I was a kid, I remember watching people surfing on TV (where else could I have watched them, growing up in Poland…?) and dreaming to be like them one day. Then, soon after I graduated, I...

Step 36 - Be a Doer
There is this great app ad on the subway that always makes me smile. It says: “In doers we trust”. And I always think the same thing: “Yes, it’s always up to the doers”...

My Four Years in NY

Step 35 - Get Yourself Motivated

There is a lot of bad things to be said about social media, but I believe that when used it wisely, it’s a great tool overall. I followed a photographer, Chris Burkard (@chriburkard), on Instagram just because I thought he took amazing photos. So when I saw (also on Instagram) he’d have an exhibition in NY, I knew I had to go. And I went with my friends on a hot Saturday afternoon to a

Step 34 - Transformation.


I just finished reading a book “Brave enough” by Cheryl Strayed, in which she says something that moved me: “Transformation doesn’t ask that you stop being you. It demands that you find a way back to the authenticity and strengths that’s already inside of you. You only have to bloom”. It’s a beautiful quote that underlines important things about the pro

When Is the Right Time To Say No To a Guy?


The great thing about getting older is that your brain keeps working better and better. You finally see certain connections occur and you don’t do as many stupid things that end up hurting you. You still do a decent amount of them, but you can take care of yourself a bit better. And I believe that one of these things that help you avoid hurting yourself is just saying NO. Especially when i

Step 33 - There is Nothing Between Me and Me


I can truly say that I love myself. Or maybe even that I’m in love with myself. And before you think or say that I’m shallow or narcissistic (which completely missed my point), I’ll explain to you why loving yourself first should be your priority. My friend Michal once laughed at me that a title of my future book will be: “There is Nothing Between Me and Me”. Becaus

Walk With Me, Part 1 – Brookfield Place and The Statue of Liberty


Many people who visit NY and want to see Statue of Liberty take 5 subway line and get off at Bowling Green station, next to Battery Park. After they spot the Statue, they walk between buildings to World Trade Center. What I would suggest is a different solution. Take the E train and get off at World Trade Center station, then head to Brookfield Place (you can also visit Freedom Tower and the World

Step 32 - Have Distance Towards Yourself


There is one thing that I find really unattractive in a person – when they don’t have any distance towards themselves. Sorry, but for me that’s an immediate bummer. I personally don’t like it when people treat themselves too seriously. That’s why I love my friends: we all can laugh at each other and no one gets offended (and there are some harsh words coming out som

That Familiar Starbucks Feeling


Three times every week I go to Starbucks to buy coffee and I must say every time I can’t help but wonder: how is it possible that you could make such a huge business on selling people coffee. And I think I finally understood the reason – they give you exactly what you need. I wrote about Starbucks several times on Just Like NY, because, in a way, it’s hard not to: it became a

Ghosting? I Say, Fuck That


Have you heard about ghosting…? No, it’s not a new sexual technique. I read about it a while ago, and then again a few days ago, and have a feeling that I keep hearing about it all the time recently. Even a few of my girlfriends asked me recently – Daga, what is it, we go on a date or a few, it’s fun, we both have a good time, he texts me the day after or even on the sam
