My Four Years in NY


Four years in NY passed for me almost two months ago. Four years is a lot to live abroad. Every year I do a summary of what I’ve learned during yet another year. This past one was amazing, to be sure. It started with Tony Robbins’ workshop and all those changes that have been going through me. I have put a lot of work to change some of my habits, my mind and my body. Meanwhile, there

That Familiar Starbucks Feeling


Three times every week I go to Starbucks to buy coffee and I must say every time I can’t help but wonder: how is it possible that you could make such a huge business on selling people coffee. And I think I finally understood the reason – they give you exactly what you need. I wrote about Starbucks several times on Just Like NY, because, in a way, it’s hard not to: it became a

Ghosting? I Say, Fuck That


Have you heard about ghosting…? No, it’s not a new sexual technique. I read about it a while ago, and then again a few days ago, and have a feeling that I keep hearing about it all the time recently. Even a few of my girlfriends asked me recently – Daga, what is it, we go on a date or a few, it’s fun, we both have a good time, he texts me the day after or even on the sam

Generation of swiping

Smartphones and apps is like a perfect modern relationship – they have this amazing level of belonging to

In NY, You Look Either For a Job, an Apartment, or a Man


There is this saying that in NY, you either are looking for a partner, for an apartment or for a job. I couldn’t agree more. I know many people in NY already, but only a handful of them have all these things simultaneously. Even if you’re in a relationship, you’ll probably be looking for job, or for an apartment every 1-2 years – there is no other way. This city is not su

Rich in NY


I’m surrounded with wealth in NY. And just to be clear – I’m not talking about my own wealth. I always knew that there were rich people here, but I had no idea what level of wealth we’re talking about. I recently visited a building where  Sting and Jennifer Lopez have their apartments. It’s right next to Columbus Circle, Trump Tower and Central Park. The buildi

What Do You Know Right Away About a New Yorker


When I’m meeting someone who says that they lived in NY for a few years, I know a few things right away: 1.       That they went through a lot. It’s difficult to even explain this sentence. When you live in NYC, you encounter the whole variety of different situations and emotions. There are too many of them to even start discussing them here. 2. &

What Will You Encounter as a Single Person in NYC


photo by Edgard Penadejesus check out his website http://www.edgardpenadejesus.com/ It’s such a weird myth that we, single people, are “very selfish”, because we choose to think and focus only on ourselves. Let me tell you one thing – yes we do, and there is reason for that. Especially when you’re talking about single folks in NYC. The thing is that you have
