Step 51 - What Should Be Your Main 2018 Goal?
Some people hesitate to set any New Year goals and resolution for themselves; they just find them stupid. I can understand that. But then some others – like me – take them seriously, be...

I Can’t Help Women if They Don’t Want to Help Themselves
Ladies, I can’t cope with you. I really can’t, not anymore. I keep hearing women complaining about men. They complain how badly men treat them, how terribly guys behave towards them, wha...

How To Say Goodbye To the Old Year?
My goodbye to the year that has just ended usually takes on a form of a few hour session with myself. What I usually do is I take my list of goals I set for myself at the beginning of the year to di...

What Does It Mean To Be a True Gentleman
One of my male friends sent me an article arguing that chivalry is not dead and that there are true gentlemen out there who would “make us melt”. The article presented us with 9 things t...

How do I conquer fear?
Fear rules our lives, whether you want to admit it or not. All of your decisions are based on fear. All of your choices are rooted in your fears. You don’t apply for a j...

Step 51- What does it take for you to understand what it’s all about?
I just finished Tim Ferriss’ book, “Tribe of Mentors,” and one of the people featured in his book is a woman named Turia Pitt. I haven’t looked up every p...

Step 50 - Slow Down (Daga). Speed Detox
I just had a few days off. And I was so excited about these days off that I have been coming up with different ideas on how to spend them. I had new ideas almost every day before that week finall...

What changed in me after Tony Robbins’ workshops?
  In March 2016, I attended Tony Robbins’ Unleash the Power workshops. I wasn’t going to write about it at all, since I didn’t know what people would think, ...

When I know you’re not a New Yorker?
  I think I’m becoming an expert at recognizing real New Yorkers. What do I mean by that? I love watching people, taking notice of their behaviors and habits. That means I watch New Yo...

“I’m Not…”…? I say It’s Bullshit
I think that many people have no idea how important it is to pay attention the words you use. I believe I have written about that on Just Like NY already, but it’s important to keep talking abo...

Body – dangerous field
This is a difficult topic, but I still want to write about it: body and body image. We all know how the media treats our bodies and what kind of body image is presented to us. I’ve written about...

Step 49 - What’s Your Next Step After You’ve Failed?
My spinning instructor keeps saying: “It’s not important what you do when you’re strong; the most important thing is what you do when you have no strength at all”. And every...

What Do Independent Women Really Want?


You mean, other than sex? There are a few things. But to understand what an independent woman really wants, you have to first understand who she is. She is usually a well-educated woman, she is usually 25 and up – most likely, she’s in her 30s. When she is about to turn 30, she finally realizes who she is and what is it that she wants. And things start getting complicated. Because sh

I’ll Take You To a Temple.


Going to the gym is a huge part of NYC lifestyle. All my friends go to the gym and most of them go almost every day (ok, they're gay, but not all my friends are). The first thing that surprised me when I moved to NY was that gyms were cheap. Well, you can find the expensive ones too, but you can easily go to the gym for only $10 a month (!). I did that for a year. Some of them are $40 and $60 and

Immigrant Life


  I’ve been living in NYC for over three and a half years now. And boy, it’s been a real journey. No one can ever prepare you for that. You come over here thinking you’ll have a “Sex & the City” life and it’s not even fucking close. It’s difficult, different, there are so many unexpected things that are happening to you that you just start q

Holiday Season Is On… Yet Again


It’s amazing how they force the holiday season onto us here! There was still one week of November left when I walked into a bank and there were Christmas songs on. Calm down, people. This is what they do over here – the turkey leftovers are still on the table and they already turn Christmas season on. The Christmas trees came to town – they are already everywhere in the city &n

Why Did We Wake Up Sad on Wednesday Morning?


It’s been almost two weeks now, so it’s time to move on. We had the presidential election on Tuesday, November 8th and I this date will cut a deep mark on America’s body and psyche. What happened? Donald Trump won – and to say that many people didn’t expect it at all would be an understatement. Most people here in NYC, were just devastated. I watched the results wi

We All Look the Same, or: What Would New Yorker buy?


When I first moved to NY, I thought everyone here was entirely unique and that literally everyone looked different. The longer I live here, the more I think we all look the same. I’m not talking about the skin color, hair type, or face of course. I’m talking about the way we dress. I already wrote on Just Like NY about two basic colors New Yorkers love – black and white –

Polish People in NYC


There is this sentence I’ve been hearing from Polish people ever since I got to NY (please, don’t get angry, my dear compatriots): “I didn’t come here to meet Polish people”. What’s more, my answer to a question: “Are you dating any Polish guys?”, usually was the exact same one. Where does it come from? When we decide to immigrate to a different co

3 years of Just Like NY


Suddenly, it’s been three years since I started Just Like NY. I was thinking recently how great would it be to do only this for a living: write and explore NY every day. But it’s impossible right now. Sometimes someone says to me: “Hey, I can see you are still running your website”, and this never fails put a smile on my face, because for me it’s obvious that &ndash
