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...

Summer JustGuide, Part I


Summer has arrived all too suddenly and since it will be too short as always, you need to be alert and know what’s going on. I already missed out on some events, because it escaped me that the season is already in bloom. First of all, I recommend following the series of events under the Celebrate Brooklyn banner:  http://bricartsmedia.org/performing-arts/celebrate-brooklyn/celebr

Korengal – Coming Home the Hard Way


As I wrote once at Just Like NY, I am lucky to meet interesting people here who inspire me. One of these is Sebastian Junger: writer, journalist, director and screenwriter. He wrote “The Perfect Storm” (later filmed with George Clooney as the lead) and “War”. He also co-directed the famous 2010 documentary “Restrepo”, nominated for an Academy Award. His new do

Why I Will Be Coming Back to Governors Ball


I have been waiting for the Governors Ball music festival since last year, so I bought the 3-day pass as soon as it became available. I have been attending the biggest Polish musical festival called Open’er for many years now, so I couldn’t possibly miss this one. Governors Ball takes place on Randall Island, which you can reach by ferry, by bus or on foot – depending on which

Governors Ball 2014 in pictures


Governors Ball is a music festival that took place on the first weekend of June. 3 days of live music, more than 60 artists and smile on my face guaranteed :) More about the festival here and now check out my photos.  André "André 3000" Benjamin (OutKast) - in the yellow cap - watching Childish Gamb

East River State Park


I found this place by accident two years ago, this is how it usually happens to me lately, and I was totally blown away. This part of Williamsburg, one of the most hyped Brooklyn neighborhoods, the one no-one cared about over a decade ago, happened to be one of the most desired places to live and hang out in right now.  Just right at the East River the new blocks and a very cozy square have b

Healthy Living


It’s finally warm outside! People went out to the streets and realized the summer is here. In fact, I’m speaking of myself (I’m 3 months late in realizing I need to prepare my body for a bikini), but I suspect I’m not alone in this. Together with the disappearance of heavy coats and jackets (which we have been wearing for far too long this season), suddenly what I see eve

Starbucks – Beyond the Coffee


Almost everyone in Poland knows what Starbucks is, and literally everyone knows it in New York. In Manhattan alone, there a Starbucks every couple of blocks (over 300 places in total), and even if there are fewer of them in other boroughs, the number keeps growing (recently they even opened one in Greenpoint - the picture above). In Poland, there are only a couple of Starbucks cafes and the pr

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
