NY Through My Eyes - West Village, October 2018
I started my You Tube series "NY Through My Eyes". My goal is to explore the most interesting NY neighborhoods. I took off with the West Village. More (and better) to come. I'll be talking a...

Color Factory - Wake Up Your Inner Child
The problem with NY is that we have too much of everything. There are so many events every day that sometimes - or most of the time - you just choose…to stay at home. And that’s exactly...

Your Opinion of Me Is None of My Business
Yeah, I know. The second you hear the sentence I chose for the title of this post, it sounds very cocky to you. It sounds like my self-esteem is sky-rocketing and my ego is bursting at the seams. Bu...

“The Top Five Regrets of the Dying” - Regret Number Five
For some reason, I’ve kept seeing again the list of “The Top 5 Regrets of the Dying” poping up recently all the time. It’s a list created by Bronnie Ware, based on her best- ...

Step 61 - Forget About “Finding Your Passion”
I’ve already written in Just Like NY about “looking for a passion,” but I have a few new thoughts on the subject.  First of all, forget about this trend of “live yo...

Just Let Us Be the Woman We Want To Be
I was recently riding the subway and I looked around as I always do (unless I’m around my period and don’t want to look at anyone). I looked at women this time (it rarely happens, but th...

Breathwork with XPT

Make Your Own Choice
I was recently called out on holding a supposedly strongly stance against marriage. Since it happened twice in one month, I feel like something I said was actually lost in translation.  I neve...

What’s the deal with meditation?
I don’t know what it’s like everywhere else, but here in the US, meditation has become very popular, to the point where companies hire teachers to give...

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.&...

Life On the Go


Union Squre, June 2013 One of the many differences between New York streets and those of any other city is that you can truly experience the so-called everyday life here. In Poland, as well as in many other European countries, there’s a clear division between what’s private and what’s public. Here it matters far less. The main borderline should be drawn rather between what&rsq

Red is for Walking


  Try not to walk At a pedestrian crossing in New York you will see either a white light (the equivalent of polish green) or a red one. Both have the same meaning: just walk. When a New Yorker crosses a street, he or she is not looking what light it is: they look if there’s a car approaching. Sometimes I even feel the lights are completely disposable here. Sure, the drivers will honk,

New York Women


 Nolita, Manhattan June 2013 If you happen to be a man who loves beautiful women – you have to come to New York City. Some say Polish women are beautiful (and of course they are!) but New York women are even more gorgeous. Why is that? Because women from all over the world come here. You will meet many „mixtures” here – women whose parents come from different parts of

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

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
