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...

The High Line – The Park Over New Yorkers’ Heads


January 2013 Americans were clearly jealous of the French and the Promenade Plantée in Paris, and so they created a similar park over New Yorkers’ heads. The High Line is a suspended promenade, one mile long, built on a former train track of the West Side Line in Manhattan. It was built in 2009 and is located above the streets of Manhattan (currently it stretches from below 14th to

No Work Shames You! Yeah, right…


Manhattan, September 2013 This is something I wanted to write about for a while now. In fact, I planned it ever since I first came to NYC in 2007. This post won’t tell you how to look for a job and find it, but it will tell you what does it mean to work in NY – and abroad in general. It may well be that many readers will protest and deny what I say below. But it’s time to face

Atlantic Antic – The Biggest Street Festival in NY


On Sunday, 29 September me and a couple of friends went to Atlantic Antic, a street festival taking place in Brooklyn, which attracts thousands of people every year. It’s the biggest festival of its kind in New York. Before the event I read that „on this day, Atlantic Avenue turns into a true ocean of goodies, dominated by celebration of the tradition of food, art, music, shopping an

Chelsea Market


Chelsea Market is a multi-store building located in Manhattan, at 15th Street between 9th and 10th Avenues (75 9th Ave.). It was built in the Ninetieth Century, which makes it very old by New York standards. It first served as a bakery. Currently it’s one of the most fashionable places in New York and an absolute must-see. When I first visited the place with my friend Mariusz, I was disap

Patricia Field’s House of Sin


 Patricia Field, 306 Bowery, Manhattan Even though Manhattan keeps providing me with thrills, I don’t recall when was the last time that a mere visit to a store pleased me so much as the one I made a couple of days ago. I went inside, because my attention was caught by some very colorful and slightly campy items displayed outside. That, together with a mannequin (a woman-umbrella) next

„I Envy You New York” – Are you sure…?


Lower East side, Manhattan, September 2013 „I envy you New York”. I don’t know how many times have I heard this sentence. I firmly believe that the people saying it have good intentions, but I’m becoming more and more irritated by it. How come? First of all: if you happen to be single, untied by family or a partner, you don’t have a job that gives you 300% satisf

Cockroaches!!!


I know there are no cochroaches in the picture, but I just don't feel like posting any pictures with them. You can see how destroyed some buildings actually are - cochroaches are happy about that. How do you picture a typical Manhattan flat? Spacious, clean, with a gorgous view of the skyline in each window, right…? It may happen – if you are rich. Reality is more brutal, though.Wh

The Green Card Dreams


It happens to me more and more often that, upon hearing questions like: „Why can’t you stay over there as long as you’d like?”, or: „Why don’t you find a job there?”, I need to take a deep breath and count to ten. It’s time to finally explain it. As a Pole, in order to get to the United States, you need a visa. Getting a tourist visa valid for 10
