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...

10 Types of Most Annoying Subway People I See Every Day:
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
Four years in NY passed for me almost two months ago. Four years is a lot to live abroad. Every year I do a summary of what I’ve learned during yet another year. This past one was amazing, to ...

Step 35 - Get Yourself Motivated

Paul Nicklen Gallery
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 Instagr...

Step 33 - There is Nothing Between Me and Me

Why Is Going On a Date In NY Close To a Miracle?


I just downloaded one of the numerous available dating apps. I was curious what it looks like and I thought to myself that I have nothing to lose. It may turn out that I have nothing to gain from it, either. Ok, it may be too soon to say that, but after two weeks I have a few observations. I will share them with you for benefit of those who are already in a relationship, and those who are not on

Step 27 - What’s Your Definition of Success?


The answer to the question is not that obvious, if you think of it. Still, I bet that most of people associate success with money. When we’re saying: “He/She is successful” we mean that they make a lot of money. I used to think along the same lines, but over the time I understood it’s not about money at all. At least –not for me. You can have all the money in the w

How Are Your New Year’s Resolutions?


It’s been three months of the New Year already and I bet most of you forgot about your resolutions by now, right? I didn’t forget about mine, just because I carry my notebook with me all the time. And I wrote them down on the first page, just to be sure I would check it once in a while. And I really do read them again every month. Did all of them become part of my life? Most of the

What Do You Know Right Away About a New Yorker


When I’m meeting someone who says that they lived in NY for a few years, I know a few things right away: 1.       That they went through a lot. It’s difficult to even explain this sentence. When you live in NYC, you encounter the whole variety of different situations and emotions. There are too many of them to even start discussing them here. 2. &

Step 26 – Why Women Have to Work Out?


I wrote about it on Just Like NY already, but I will keep on writing about that until you all will understand it – we women have to work out. Men have to work out too, of course, but I think it especially crucial when it comes to women. Why? Because, as I said before – I don’t believe that a woman who is not satisfied with her body can have a truly happy life. I just don’

Overweight


This subject has been on my mind for a while now. I’m really appreciative that I have a chance to live in another country and get a completely different perspective on so many things. I have a feeling that living in only one country – no matter if it’s somewhere in Europe, in the US,  or anywhere else – gives you only one perspective and it’s very difficult to

Step 25 – Get Real With Yourself.


I wrote over 20 posts abut transformation by now and have another 100 on my mind at least, but there is one thing I should have mentioned at the very beginning. One of the first steps to change something about yourself is just to get real with yourself. What do I mean by that? Just be honest with yourself. As easy as it sounds, it’s not easy at all. You don’t have a dream job?

What Will You Encounter as a Single Person in NYC


photo by Edgard Penadejesus check out his website http://www.edgardpenadejesus.com/ It’s such a weird myth that we, single people, are “very selfish”, because we choose to think and focus only on ourselves. Let me tell you one thing – yes we do, and there is reason for that. Especially when you’re talking about single folks in NYC. The thing is that you have
