Don’t judge by the chapter you walked into.
It’s a new year, so I want you to change one thing. I would say “we,” but I’ve already been working on it the last two years (not that I’ve mastered it yet). Don’...

Why Some Women Don’t Want to Have Kids (And Why the Reason Is Not What You Think It Is)
Yes, I want to write about it (again), because it bothers me. I recently realized I don’t want to have kids (now and maybe ever). And I realized how difficult it is for a woman not only to adm...

You’re Fine
2018 has been a very successful year for me, because I finally understand that I’m completely fine. I just look at myself and I finally see myself. It took me half my life to understand it, bu...

It’s Profound to Be Understood
As Whoopi Goldberg said in her book „If He Says: ‚You complete me’ — Run!”, which I’ve already written about on JLNY some time ago, people tend to mistake love fo...

You’re Always Becoming
Michelle Obama released her book memoir, „Becoming”, and I keep seeing it everywhere in NYC. I haven’t read it yet and now I really want to. Not because I consider Barack Obam...

Drop This Attitude
I just had my best friend Gosia visited me from Chicago a few weeks ago. We spent the whole weekend together excited about each other. We did a few activities, but what was the most important was th...

Is Your Partner’s Skin Color or Country of Origin Relevant At All?
I will answer the titular question right away: „I don’t think so”. And I’m pretty sure I am right. I honestly don’t understand this whole theory about having a partner ...

How To Get the Body You Want
Have you ever said to yourself: “I’m so fat”…? Or “I can’t even look at myself”…?. Or “I will never lose all this weight”…? Or &l...

Accept the challenge
Until now, my favorite sentence was always: “Hope he’ll change after we get married.” (Yeah,  sure, into a pumpkin…) But there is a new contender that I find equally ...

NY Love Story A.D. 2019
I don’t like romantic comedies. And I can tell you why. Once, it used to be my favorite genre, but I grew up since then (a bit). Also — I moved to NY. Romantic comedies just don’t ...

When Was the Last Time Your Journal Embarrassed You?
When was the last time you said to yourself: “This is embarrassing”, and you actually meant yourself…? Well, it just happened to me. I sat down to write about something else and I...

Why It’s Important To Not Look Like Shit
Here is my question: Why do you think it’s a good idea to look like shit at home? Some people put on their worst clothes at home - clothes with holes, stretched out, worn out, old and ugly. (B...

How To Eat at New York Restaurants


Arriving in NY from Europe, and especially from Mediterranean countries, you have to prepare yourselves for different service at restaurants. I have said many times this city is rushing, and everyone who lives here rushes with it. New Yorkers love to come to restaurants, but they do it so often and it’s such a part of their lives, that they do not add special meaning to it, or think that i

Are you A „Basic Bitch”?


You don’t know if you are, since you have no idea what I’m talking about…? I also read the phrase a few days back in the New York Magazine and I immediately found a great video that made it popular: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PaghIdSJKvQ The moniker “basic bitch” has stuck to girls who depend on all the things that seem “basic” to them. It co

Airbnb, the New Way to Live in NYC


New Yorkers are in love all of a sudden, and their beloved’s name is airbnb.com. I won’t hesitate to say that this website not only made it easier for people to live in the city: for many, it literally saved their lives. The website was created to help the tourists visiting the city, but it became a real godsend to those who cannot imagine living anywhere else. What’s the deal

Halllowen is upon us


Because Halloween is almost here I wanted to show you my two favorite stores. Both of them are creepy and both of them offer you whatever you need. Wanna be a Star Wars character, a princess, half naked princess or a nurse who kills? No problem. The variety is endless. And I quarantee you that some of the costumes will shock you. If you haven't bought your costume yet visit these weirdos. They're

How to Behave On the Subway


In NY, you simply have no other choice but to use the subway. Distances here are too great to walk everywhere on foot. It may be technically possible, but you would require infinite amount of time to do that. I will share a couple of pointers with you, which will hopefully prove useful in using the most popular means of transportation in the city. In the picture above you'll see an empty subway

Ocean of small fry


I don’t agree that internet dating is necessarily a sign of desperation, as is still believed by many. Nowadays, when we basically live hooked up to the internet, no one should be shocked that we also meet one another online. I decided to try it, too, because… why not? There’s a multitude of dating websites in the US; the one that was recommended to me is called Plenty of Fish

Union Square


There’s a place in Manhattan that seems to me an obvious choice for a tourist; one I assumed every New Yorker has visited at least a hundred times. To my surprise, it turns out that some of them have never been there, and others believe it’s nothing special, so they simply don’t come. When I post pictures of Union Square – for that’s the place I’m referring to

Brighton Beach – Russian-Arab Folklore


To my joy, I moved into a new neighborhood and I can once again explore a new territory. What’s really fascinating about living in NYC, is that every time you switch apartments, even within the same district, you have a guarantee that you will have a new set of neighbors. And I don’t even mean neighbors who look like you, but neighbors coming from an entirely different culture than you
