Step 44 - How Do You See Yourself?
photo by http://www.wdkproductions.com/ I wonder what kind of picture of yourself do you have in your own mind? I’m not asking about the one you present to the world, but about the real ...

Walk with me, Part 4 – Nolita
Nolita is right next to Soho and I was thinking of putting these two walks together – and you could do that of course – but there are just too many things to explore in each neighborhood s...

Step 43: Have the Courage to Stand Alone
Photo by wdkproductions.com I heard this sentence: “Have the courage to stand alone”, spoken by Brene Brown in a conversation with Marie Forleo a few weeks ago, and it keeps ringing in ...

Walk with Me, Part 3 – Soho
  Soho is one of my favorite places in NY. And it’s not because of the fancy stores (I don’t have the desire to buy a Chanel bag, I want someone to give me that bag for free.) It's...

Step 42 – How do we not go crazy?
It’s very easy to go crazy in NY. It’s way too easy. That’s why at some point, you have to slow down and ask yourself how your mind is doing. There are a few different ways I ...

Step 41 – Close the Open Tabs
I recently noticed that everyone, including myself, says, “OMG, this month passed by so fast! Where did the time go?” And I feel that every year we say it more often. Have you noticed th...

The Bridges of Madison County - A Cautionary Tale
I’ve been coming back to old movies recently and watched one of my favorite movies of all time – “The Bridges of Madison County” with my favorite actress, Meryl Str...

Brooklyn vs. Manhattan
It’s funny how Manhattan and Brooklyn are different, even though they are only a river away. They are actually just one subway stop away (which is a few minutes’ distance). A lot of peop...

Women’s Surf Film Festival
I finally attended Women’s Surf Film Festival that took place at Rockaway Beach Surf Club on the last Friday and Saturday of July. I didn’t see all the movies (they’re mostly short...

Birthday
35 years ago, a miracle happened and I came into this world. And everything changed. I’m kidding. Nothing changed, except for the fact that the world got a bit confused. When I was a little ...

Yelp & Health
If you are running a restaurant business in NYC, you always fear of two things: Health Department and Yelp reviews. Health Department comes to a restaurant once a year and checks everything &ndash...

Racism Is Still Alive
I just had a chance to watch a new movie called “Crown Heights” and I must say it was a really painful screening for me. Had I watched it back in Poland, I would probably look at it as j...

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


I don’t know how it’s in different countries since I haven’t left US the last 4 years, but here the technology is taking over. There is IPhone of course that gives you everything that you need (it just doesn’t say when it’s your peeing time…yet). 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

Does Coaching Make Any Sense?


I must admit that I find the whole discussion around coaching really amusing. “Does it make sense…?”; “Should they allow it to be happening…?”. It’s hilarious. I wonder why it bothers so many people so much. It’s pretty common in the USA that people have their coaches. Americans are really into the whole self-development thing – and you kno

Where to Spot Famous People?


I heard this question many times already and the answer is very simple – everywhere. You just never know when you will run into someone. I’ve seen some of them already. I saw at a the same bar in Chelsea in Manhattan: Michael Phelps (and I was introduced to him), John Waters (I was so happy to see him that I kept smiling at him and he smiled back at me), Gabriel Garcia Bernal (I made
