Do You Want To Be Famous?
Because I’ve been living here for almost five years now, I tend to forget what kind of place NYC is. It’s where fantasy keeps meeting reality. The longer you live here, the more “...

Double Standard – Why Are Women Treated Differently?
I had a situation that I wrote about on Facebook, but I want to write more about it, because there is more to it.  So there was a guy, a customer of mine who I had met maybe three times, who&n...

Why Having a Boyfriend Will Not Make You Happy?
When I was a teenage girl (that is one week ago… just kidding), my biggest dream was to have a boyfriend. Especially since a weekly column called “Love Story” from “Bravo&r...

What Happens Once You Stop Caring If People Like You?
What happens once you stop caring if people like you…? It’s simple – your life starts changing. Yes, it’s that huge. One day I realized that it happened to me – that ...

Men and Sex
What is it that men want when it comes to sex…? The thing is: they want to have everything. Including a virgin. That’s the funniest part. I didn’t have a lot of sex in my life (c...

The Most Annoying American Family
I must say, I’m so fed up with these fake images and fake lives that are all over social media now. And there is one family that makes me especially angry. You’ve p...

Step 53 - Do You Have A Choice?
I believe I have already written about what I am about to say in this post, but I’ll be coming back to the subject, because it’s really important. I notice more and more often that we ge...

Step 52 - Don’t Assume (Or In Another Words, Don’t Judge)
We’re all guilty of it. We judge. And even if you say or think that you don’t, I have bad news for you – yes, you do. We all classify people based on our knowledge of the...

Stereotypes. Have Enough Class To Not Say Anything
I wrote about stereotypes already, but the longer I live here, the more I see that not much is changing in this matter. Living in NY will help you learn more about other cultures, but it doesn&rsq...

What’s My Health Plan For 2018?
I want to share with you my health plan for this year. I don’t know if it works out. I will be experimenting and see what would work for me – and what would be the results in December 20...

Americans’ Dirty Secret
It’s a very difficult topic, but since I really want to write about it, I’m now taking a risk. I’ve been living here for almost five years – and if I combined that period wit...

My Jobs in NY
I wrote about jobs in New York already – about how I believe that there is no job that you should be ashamed of. Let me tell you about my job experience here in a bit more detail. As soon as...

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

What I Grew to Like Since I Moved To NYC

There have been many changes within me, more than I probably imagine. But there are a few visible ones: I grew to like: -          Donuts. I love Polish donuts, but I used to have them only once a year. Since I tried donuts from Doughnut Plant (have you ever tried a Pistacchio donut?), it became really difficult for me to avoid this place. I still h

Who Will You Meet On a 2-Hour Subway Ride?

I wrote about subway commute right after I started Just Like NY. People who have never visited NY, don’t realize how huge this city is. On Saturday I decided to visit my friend who works in the Bronx. And because I live down in Brighton Beach now and his stop was the last subway stop up in the Bronx, it was really quite a ride (see pic below). It took me 2.30h to get there! It would have t

Should Every Woman Have Kids?

I know it’s a difficult subject and I believe that everyone has an opinion about that. Which is good, because I have one of my own. I strongly believe that no: not every woman should have children. I’m almost 35 and I don’t have kids, I have no idea how it is and am not so sure if I want to know. What’s even funnier, the older I get, the less I’m sure if I want to h

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
