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...

What’s My Health Plan For 2018?
I want to share with you my health plan for this year. I don’t know if it works out. I will be experimenting and see what would work for me – and what would be the results in December 20...

Americans’ Dirty Secret
It’s a very difficult topic, but since I really want to write about it, I’m now taking a risk. I’ve been living here for almost five years – and if I combined that period wit...

My Jobs in NY
I wrote about jobs in New York already – about how I believe that there is no job that you should be ashamed of. Let me tell you about my job experience here in a bit more detail. As soon as...

Why You Shouldn’t Fall In Love Too Quickly
I just watched Matthew Hussey’s new video (I wrote about Matthew already on Just Like NY) and I haven’t been watching any recently, but when I saw this title “Four Dangerous Reason...

Step 51 - What Should Be Your Main 2018 Goal?
Some people hesitate to set any New Year goals and resolution for themselves; they just find them stupid. I can understand that. But then some others – like me – take them seriously, be...

I Can’t Help Women if They Don’t Want to Help Themselves
Ladies, I can’t cope with you. I really can’t, not anymore. I keep hearing women complaining about men. They complain how badly men treat them, how terribly guys behave towards them, wha...

How To Say Goodbye To the Old Year?
My goodbye to the year that has just ended usually takes on a form of a few hour session with myself. What I usually do is I take my list of goals I set for myself at the beginning of the year to di...

What Does It Mean To Be a True Gentleman
One of my male friends sent me an article arguing that chivalry is not dead and that there are true gentlemen out there who would “make us melt”. The article presented us with 9 things t...

How do I conquer fear?
Fear rules our lives, whether you want to admit it or not. All of your decisions are based on fear. All of your choices are rooted in your fears. You don’t apply for a j...

Christmas Time in NY


I've heard: "NY must be magical during the christmas time" so many times, that I decided to show you how I see NY at this time of a year.  I went for a very long walk with my camera and managed to capture all those "must see places". I started from the 5th Avenue at Central Park and the Plaza Hotel, then I went to the 6th Avenue and took pictures of all those most known sp

Pam Ann, or Flying Off the Handle


Pam Ann at XL club, December 2013 Do you know Pam Ann? I didn’t – not until a certain December evening. A friend of mine told me he bought me a ticket to her show and that we were going. I fell in love with her from the very first minute. What was so great about her show was that you couldn’t tell what would come next. But I’m getting ahead of myself.   Pam

House Balls According to Gaskin, or What Is „Vouging”


I chanced upon the article on Gaskin’s photography in one of the November issues of the „New York Times”. The subject of the pictures struck me as interesting enough to make me spend an entire evening browsing the internet. Gerard H. Gaskin is a photographer born in Trinidad; for over two decades now he has been portraying the undeground gay and transgender scenes. He deals wi

Balthus at Metropolitan Museum of Art


Definitely my favorite painting.  I was overjoyed to be able to finally make it to Metropolitan Museum of Art for the Balthus exhibition “Cats and Girls – Paintings and Provocations”, the title of which is pretty much self-explanatory.   Before I comment on the exhibition itself, I will briefly mention what was most memorable to me about the entire visit. At al

Musical Mondays


If you ever find yourself staying in New York City on a Monday, you really need to visit The Bitter End club. It’s a place located in West Village, in downtown Manhattan (West 4th St. subway station). Me and my friends - Magda and Joachim, ended up in the club on one of this November Mondays. It was completely by accident; we didn’t plan ahead. Our main objective for the evening was

Polish Pork Chop in New York


When someone asks me: „Don’t you miss Polish food?”, I say I don’t. Is it because I don’t like Polish cuisine…? No. I do enjoy it. I may prefer Greek or Italian, but I always enjoy a good „schabowy” [pork chop]. The reason I don’t miss it is because it’s fully available to me over here. Of course, it may  not always be „home

Greenpoint vs. Williamsburg


I’m always irritated by Polish people who –without ever being in New York and thus without knowing Greenpoint first-hand – tell me their opininon of the palce or simply laugh at it. The truth about Greenpoint, as is usually the case, is somewhere in between. Especially recently. Greenpoint has been forever associated with Polish people. Everyone in NYC knows that’s where
