Step 44 - How Do You See Yourself?
photo by http://www.wdkproductions.com/ I wonder what kind of picture of yourself do you have in your own mind? I’m not asking about the one you present to the world, but about the real ...

Walk with me, Part 4 – Nolita
Nolita is right next to Soho and I was thinking of putting these two walks together – and you could do that of course – but there are just too many things to explore in each neighborhood s...

Step 43: Have the Courage to Stand Alone
Photo by wdkproductions.com I heard this sentence: “Have the courage to stand alone”, spoken by Brene Brown in a conversation with Marie Forleo a few weeks ago, and it keeps ringing in ...

Walk with Me, Part 3 – Soho
  Soho is one of my favorite places in NY. And it’s not because of the fancy stores (I don’t have the desire to buy a Chanel bag, I want someone to give me that bag for free.) It's...

Step 42 – How do we not go crazy?
It’s very easy to go crazy in NY. It’s way too easy. That’s why at some point, you have to slow down and ask yourself how your mind is doing. There are a few different ways I ...

Step 41 – Close the Open Tabs
I recently noticed that everyone, including myself, says, “OMG, this month passed by so fast! Where did the time go?” And I feel that every year we say it more often. Have you noticed th...

The Bridges of Madison County - A Cautionary Tale
I’ve been coming back to old movies recently and watched one of my favorite movies of all time – “The Bridges of Madison County” with my favorite actress, Meryl Str...

Brooklyn vs. Manhattan
It’s funny how Manhattan and Brooklyn are different, even though they are only a river away. They are actually just one subway stop away (which is a few minutes’ distance). A lot of peop...

Women’s Surf Film Festival
I finally attended Women’s Surf Film Festival that took place at Rockaway Beach Surf Club on the last Friday and Saturday of July. I didn’t see all the movies (they’re mostly short...

Birthday
35 years ago, a miracle happened and I came into this world. And everything changed. I’m kidding. Nothing changed, except for the fact that the world got a bit confused. When I was a little ...

Yelp & Health
If you are running a restaurant business in NYC, you always fear of two things: Health Department and Yelp reviews. Health Department comes to a restaurant once a year and checks everything &ndash...

Racism Is Still Alive
I just had a chance to watch a new movie called “Crown Heights” and I must say it was a really painful screening for me. Had I watched it back in Poland, I would probably look at it as j...

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

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
