10 Types of Most Annoying Subway People I See Every Day:
1.        First of all, I think that a person who gets on a train and keeps their backpack on (when it’s crowded) should be slapped in the face right away. What&rs...

Come For A Walk With Me, Part 2: Dumbo, Brooklyn Bridge Park

Surfing
When I was a kid, I remember watching people surfing on TV (where else could I have watched them, growing up in Poland…?) and dreaming to be like them one day. Then, soon after I graduated, I...

Step 36 - Be a Doer
There is this great app ad on the subway that always makes me smile. It says: “In doers we trust”. And I always think the same thing: “Yes, it’s always up to the doers”...

My Four Years in NY

Step 35 - Get Yourself Motivated

Paul Nicklen Gallery
There is a lot of bad things to be said about social media, but I believe that when used it wisely, it’s a great tool overall. I followed a photographer, Chris Burkard (@chriburkard), on Instagr...

Step 33 - There is Nothing Between Me and Me

About me

I was born in Poland and lived almost 30 years over there. I moved to New York in 2013 with one suitcase and enough money for a month, knowing that it was the first step in building a new life for myself. It wasn't and still isn't an easy path, but I must say I love every minute of my life. My passion for NYC and for writing have come together to form my website Just Like NY. After some time, I discovered that what I'm really passionate about, besides showing you guys what life in NY is like, is proving to you that you can have an oustanding life wherever you decide to live. A key to that is creating ah honest relationship with yourself. I truly believe that if you want to build a healthy relationship with anyone - a partner, a friend, your family - you have to get to know and - most importantly, to love yourself first. My mission is to prove to you, especially the women out there whom I deeply care about, that you can live the life you imagined for yourself. Don't be afraid to dream big, and don't be afriad to reach as high as you can. Fight for yourself and cut the bullshit about whom You supposedely are, whom you can become and what You are capable of. Who you become it's only a matter of your choice. All you need to achieve that is already in you. My goal is to help you to see that. 

I invite you to my New York City. I will be honored if you accompany me here. Don’t hesitate to write; I’ll be happy to answer any question you may have: justlikeny@gmail.com

I owe the design of my website to a fantastic graphic designer, Agata Chmielewska: chmielewska.wix.com/stratytaty
