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 finally ...

What changed in me after Tony Robbins’ workshops?
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, sinc...

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...

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...

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...

Why I Don’t Glorify Men Anymore
I’m single, so I meet men here and there, and I’ve noticed one interesting thing that has changed recently. It ...

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...

Brooklyn Stories #1
As I said in my previous post, I decided to move out (I lived in my apartment for the past three years) and start fresh in a new neighborhood (I chose Greenpoint, which became a desired neighborho...

Step 48 - Love People, But Love Yourself More

The Rapid Change of NY
I went for a walk with my friend on the Lower East Side on Saturday night, and we felt like someone had transported us to another city. We didn’t know where we were or what had ...

MoMA PS1 Warm Up Party


MoMA PS1, 31 August, 2013, photo by Rajas Karnik At last I visited a place known to most of New Yorkers: MoMA PS1 (and decided to celebrate my birthday here!). It’s a quintessence of New York itself. It’s surrounded by concrete and steeped in art. It’s full of fashionable, smiling people, enjoying their drinks and dancing to the rhythm of new bands. Maybe it’s not exactl

Station to Station, or Art by Train(ing)


6th September 2013 at Cine Magic Riverfron Studios, Willimsburg, Brooklyn. Since art has been my interest for a long time now (even if I don’t always understand it and I’m by no means an expert), I’m eager to attend any artistic event I can. As soon as I learned about the “Station to Station” project, I knew I wanted to experience it. It was described as a “h

Bachelorette party at a gay bar? No!


Gay Pride party, June 2013 I will be coming back to the topic of gay men in New York often, since I genuinely like the guys and I’m interested in them (still, I have to admit, straight guys interest me even more). It’s worth to investigate the gay club scene, especially if it happens to be populated by women dressed up as princesses. Once you spot a princess, you know you walked in

New York Subway


I decided to locate my new post about the Subway in the „Places” folder on my site, because subway truly is something more than just means of public transportation. It’s an integral part of New York life, without which functioning of the metropolis would be unthinkable. What’s equally important, it’s the world’s only subway operating 24/7. Looking at the ma

How not to get lost in Manhattan


Despite how huge it is, it’s difficult to get lost in Manhattan – its grid-like topography is one of the easiest in the world to navigate. The grid consists of 12 avenues (Ave.) which are perpendicularly crossed by numbered streets (St.). Let’s say you’re supposed to meet someone at the corner of 5th Ave. And 34th St. It’s a direction as clear as a „Stop&rdqu

Deli, or Small Business the Arab way


When I told my Polish friends about doing my everyday shopping at the local deli, they immediately asked: “de-what?”, “de-where?”. It was then that I realized that a place as common over here as gyms and as familiar as trash laying on the streets is practically unknown in Poland.  Deli – or delicatessen – is a place you come to when you run out of beer o

The Metropolis of New York


It’s hard to convey the enormity of New York to someone who has never been here. Some people think that NY is Manhattan only – the Manhattan of Fifth Avenue only, populated with the heroines of “Sex & the City”. There’s nothing further from the truth: Manhattan is only one of New York City’s five boroughs. The remaining four are: Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx and

Manhattan - The Island of Hope


The weirdest task you can possibly pose to a New Yorker is to ask her or him to describe Manhattan to you. It’s just about impossible to do that.  Manhattan is one of New York City’s five boroughs and trying to describe it is about as easy as describing the whole palette of colors available in PhotoShop. Manhattan is, first and foremost, huge. Every time I’m here I’
