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...

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

Visiting Warner Brothers Studio


I just realized that as a graduate of film studies, it is my duty of sorts to write about having visited Warner Brothers Studios in LA – and yet I completely forgot about that. Shame on me. We went there on the second to last day of our California trip (which I wrote more about Just Like NY) – and it was great. My friend bought tickets in advance (you have to book a specific hour for

Step 31 - How About Stopping Complaining…?


What NY taught me is to stop complaining entirely. I was never been a big complainer to start with, but I had my moments. of course. Now, I simply don’t. I would still complain from time to time – when I work a 16-hour shift, sleep for 4 hours and then work another 9-hour shift, for example. I might get cranky then, I admit. But on the regular basis I just choose not to complain. And

Generation of swiping


I don’t know how it’s in different countries since I haven’t left US the last 4 years, but here the technology is taking over. There is IPhone of course that gives you everything that you need (it just doesn’t say when it’s your peeing time…yet). Smartphones and apps is like a perfect modern relationship – they have this amazing level of belonging to

Step 30 - The Grass Is Greener…


 I believe I wrote about the thing I am about to discuss before on Just Like NY, but I think it’s important enough to talk about it again. I bet everyone knows the quote: “The grass is greener on the other side of the fence”. I’m guilty of thinking this way myself and I have this moment every once in a while when it hits me that I’m doing that again. It doesn&r

Road Trip 2 – Taconic State Parkway – Lake Placid – Finger Lakes


As I said before on Just Like NY, I was born to do road trips and I am planning to have as many of them as I possibly can. That’s why we decided with my cousin Sebastian to explore upstate NY on the last weekend of May. A few days before, I simply googled “explore upstate NY” (how very clever of me) and nine road trip routes popped up immediately. We combined two of those –

Do You Really Think That Having a Hermes Bag Would Make You a Better Person?


I got used to seeing wealth in NY. Not only are the most expensive boutiques based here, but also the greatest labels are seen on the streets on a daily basis. It’s normal that you see people wearing Gucci, Prada, Hermes – no matter if we’re talking bags, glasses, or clothes. For a lot of people here it’s just regular clothes. People buy them, because they can simply affo

In NY, You Look Either For a Job, an Apartment, or a Man


There is this saying that in NY, you either are looking for a partner, for an apartment or for a job. I couldn’t agree more. I know many people in NY already, but only a handful of them have all these things simultaneously. Even if you’re in a relationship, you’ll probably be looking for job, or for an apartment every 1-2 years – there is no other way. This city is not su

California Trip


Last month, I finally made my dream come true and went on a trip to California. It was a spontaneous decision: a friend of mine said she was going, and she offered me to go with her and her friend. I wasn’t thinking much, I just said Yes. I got my plane ticket two days later. The brief plan for the trip was LA – Catalina Island - San Diego – LA. I landed two days after the two
