Step 50 - Slow Down (Daga). Speed Detox

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 Yorkers a lot....

“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...

How to Choose a Partner?
There is a problem with choosing the right guy. Namely: when do you know he is, in fact, right? What is the most important factor? Should you make a list and stick to it? Or is it better to go with...

How About My Ego?
I think of relationships a lot recently, but I reflect even more on what we were taught to think and do when it comes to men. I wrote about Matthew Hussey on Just Like NY already, he’s a relat...

Matcha Latte Groove


I remember when I moved to NYC, I made a bit fun of all those women who always buy green tea or matcha latte, shop at Whole Foods (a bit expensive store with healthy food) or Trader’s Joe(cheaper version of Whole Foods – I really recommend it). And now, 3 years later, I’m one of them too. True, I haven’t ordered Matcha Latte yet, but I feel this moment is coming. Consider

Demanding (and Judgmental) Dogs in NYC.


I’m lucky enough to have friends in NYC who own dogs and ask me to take care of them once in a while. And every time I do it, I’m amused by the observation I get to make.   You ought to know that us New Yorkers love their dogs (I mentioned that at Just Like NY before) and even if the conditions that we live in are not the most suitable for having a dog, many of us decide to h

Why New Yorkers Don’t Like Tourists


HOUSE OF YES There are several reasons. 1. Because tourists walk too slow, or they have no clue on how to walk in general. When we’re walking over here and the person in front of us is walking in a strange tempo (I mean – a slow one), not even trying to pass other people, we know we’re dealing with a tourist. And of course we’re irritated that “they can’t e

Let’s connect


One of the things I really love about NY is how people here are open to one another. You will probably hear that New Yorkers are really distant and are just chasing their own goals, which is also true (the majority of us is like that). But there’s also another truth, my own – the one I’ve experienced living in this city. It won’t be an exaggeration for me to say that ev

Racism


Things got really sad in the United States recently. I hope something good will come out of it, though. The change has to happen, because it just can’t stay like it is anymore. There is one thing I truly don’t understand – why now, in the XXI century, in 2016, we have to even have this discussion? Why aren’t some things are already obvious for everybody? Why do we have

Be Proud


Pride Parade day is one of my favorite ones. Why? Because you can feel love pouring out on the streets everywhere. It’s in every step you take, on every corner, everywhere on the subway. There are rainbows everywhere. We look at rainbows, we are dressed in rainbows, even our hearts turn to rainbows during that day. What is it truly about? It’s not about this particular parade, it&rsq

Women’s Bodies Matter


If you don’t know Amy Schumer yet, I’ll help you – she’s the most popular comedienne in the United States right now. Her career exploded within the last two years. Her sexual life and her vagina are her landmark topics. Her enormous distance towards herself and towards her body became the main subject of most of her skits. She is constantly saying she’s not perfect,

Brunching – the way to show off


Brunching is really a funny occurrence, happening in all big cities around the world. I wrote about brunches already, but the longer I live in NY, the more amusing I find them. For those who don’t know – a brunch is a weekend/holiday late breakfast eaten out in the city. You are usually partying on the night before it and as soon as you wake up in the afternoon with a huge hangover,
