Do You Want To Be Famous?
Because I’ve been living here for almost five years now, I tend to forget what kind of place NYC is. It’s where fantasy keeps meeting reality. The longer you live here, the more “...

Double Standard – Why Are Women Treated Differently?

Why Having a Boyfriend Will Not Make You Happy?

Men and Sex
What is it that men want when it comes to sex…? The thing is: they want to have everything. Including a virgin. That’s the funniest part. I didn’t have a lot of sex in my life (c...

The Most Annoying American Family
I must say, I’m so fed up with these fake images and fake lives that are all over social media now. And there is one family that makes me especially angry. You’ve p...

Step 53 - Do You Have A Choice?
I believe I have already written about what I am about to say in this post, but I’ll be coming back to the subject, because it’s really important. I notice more and more often that we ge...

Step 52 - Don’t Assume (Or In Another Words, Don’t Judge)
We’re all guilty of it. We judge. And even if you say or think that you don’t, I have bad news for you – yes, you do. We all classify people based on our knowledge of the...

Stereotypes. Have Enough Class To Not Say Anything
I wrote about stereotypes already, but the longer I live here, the more I see that not much is changing in this matter. Living in NY will help you learn more about other cultures, but it doesn&rsq...

Nails, or Chinese Business

In one of my previous posts at Just Like NY („First-Aid Kit”) I wrote on the ubiquitous nail salons, which specialize in manicure and pedicure. I remember I was stunned by their number on my first visit here. Turns out that the demand for those establishments is still huge. New York City women may often wear sweatshirts, but their fingernails and toenails have to be “done&rdquo

I’ll Meet You At McDonald’s

As I stand on my balcony, I can see the nearby McDonald’s… Even though it’s embarrassing to say so, I have to admit that the sentence would have had a near-magical glow to it, had I been uttering it back as a teenager. It used to be that living next to a McDonald’s restaurant marked the pinnacle of my dreams. Needless to say, nowadays it doesn’t impress me –

Coney Island - Brooklyn Half Marathon

That was a beautiful day, there was the ocean on one side, the runners on the other side, and the sun above us. The day I described was last Saturday, 17th May, during the Brooklyn Half Marathon, with the finish line in Coney Island, right next to the ocean. We're rooting  with my friends since 8 AM (it was exactly when the first runners started finishing). Even though we weren't ab

The YouTube Career Girls

Since I see their faces everywhere (on YouTube, on the Subway, at bus stops), I decided to learn who they are. Michelle Phan, Bethany Mota and Rosanna Pansino convince me every day I should follow my passion, as well as make me gawk at the number of their fans and subscribers.  For the first time ever, YouTube is using its content for advertising – namely, the aforementioned stars wh

  I often hear: „Oh, these are just stereotypes; you can’t pigeonhole people”. I don’t necessarily agree. Of course there are as many approaches to life as there are people themselves – and I certainly don’t enjoy it when I’m being judged stereotypically (even though Polish women in NYC are usually seen as diligent workers, there’s still a stro

Spring At Central Park

Spring finally hit NY! (we're loosing hope). Because it's warmer and the trees are blossoming I decided it was a perfect time for Central Park. When I was there for the first time 10 years ago, I was astonished how huge this place was. And I still can't understand how it's possible that something as amazing as this park could be in the middle of Manhattan. The pictures I took captured

Reaching a New Level

As I said in the “About Me” box on this website, I like creative people, which is one of the reasons I moved to NY. It’s true that it’s a city full of freaks – of whom I already wrote at Just Like NY – but also a city filled with people who came here with the same purpose I have: to find themselves and to constantly grow. Is it only in NY that you can spread

Motown on Broadway

   I’m curious how do you imagine a Broadway show to look like? In my imagination, these two words always conjured up an image of a huge auditorium and a big stage, filled with miracles of Cirque du Soleil variety. Imagine my surprise when a couple of years ago I went to see “The Producers” and I entered an auditorium looking very much like the theaters I knew, with a
