Give What You Get
A week ago, I got a text message from a guy I went on a date with… a year before. I didn’t expect to hear from him again (which is why I deleted his number), so I was pretty surprised.&...

How I Decided To Give Up This Beauty Race

Where Are You From?...Who Cares?
I can’t believe I have to write about this again, but it just bothers me so much, so here we go. Racism is alive and homophobia is alive, and if you think differently, you’re delusional&...

Step 61 - Find Your Lifestyle

DISTANCES!!!


The fact that New York offers so many attractions, cultural events and concerts makes your heart grow but also can get on your last nerve. When I check weekly listings of what’s in store for me in NY, on the one hand I’m happy that the city offers so much, but on the other I realize that I won’t be able to take part even in a moderate part of those events. There are a couple of

Loneliness & the City


What is it that makes us love New York City? It’s the sheer diversity of people, nationalities and characters. The so-called mix, which makes it one of the most unique places on earth. It would be difficult to find another city inhabited by folks from literally all over the world. Close to eight milion human beings with views differing from the ones we held so far. And with their heads ope

Body Heat


Hudson river running The popular opinion has it that Americans are overweight. OK, morbidly obese. It’s true that you will see many of them whose mere appeareance will make you start a diet. The same thing is true about New York, but not entirely. What may surprise you here is a large numer of people with perfect bodies. Doing sports is always fashionalbe here, always welcome and gen

Don’t Fear Being Yourself


There are many reasons to visit New York – practically every post on my website discusses why it is worthy to come over and spend some time here. Still, if I had to say what is the chief advantage of living in New York City, I’d point to the feeling of freedom that I first experienced here. What is the reason for it? Since there are millions of people living here, it’s easy to

Bachelorette party at a gay bar? No!


Gay Pride party, June 2013 I will be coming back to the topic of gay men in New York often, since I genuinely like the guys and I’m interested in them (still, I have to admit, straight guys interest me even more). It’s worth to investigate the gay club scene, especially if it happens to be populated by women dressed up as princesses. Once you spot a princess, you know you walked in

A Quarter, or 25 cents


In Poland, the most popular of coins is the single grosz („Can I owe you a ‘grosik’…?”), while here it’s definitely 25 cents, or a quarter (which Polish people nicknamed, transcribing it to Polish letters as „kłodra”). It allows you to make a phone call (yes, payphones are still popular here) and is indispensible at the laundromat – washi

Beware of trash!


Mercer street (2009) Since Manhattan is full of exclusive boutiques, richest folks and most beautiful cars, you’d think everything here is top-notch. Wrong! The greatest shock you may experience during your first visit here is the scary amount of trash laying around every corner. It often happens that it’s difficult to cross the sidewalk because of huge plastic bags filled

Yes, yes, no... I don't understand


If you’re afraid to come to New York for fear of your English not being sufficiently fluent (“It was a long time since I had a conversation in English, no one will understand me”), I have some advice: forget the fear. What’s more: the less you try to speak correctly – the way you were taught by your mostly British teachers – the better off you are. Straining y
