Don’t judge by the chapter you walked into.
It’s a new year, so I want you to change one thing. I would say “we,” but I’ve already been working on it the last two years (not that I’ve mastered it yet). Don’...

Why Some Women Don’t Want to Have Kids (And Why the Reason Is Not What You Think It Is)
Yes, I want to write about it (again), because it bothers me. I recently realized I don’t want to have kids (now and maybe ever). And I realized how difficult it is for a woman not only to adm...

You’re Fine
2018 has been a very successful year for me, because I finally understand that I’m completely fine. I just look at myself and I finally see myself. It took me half my life to understand it, bu...

It’s Profound to Be Understood
As Whoopi Goldberg said in her book „If He Says: ‚You complete me’ — Run!”, which I’ve already written about on JLNY some time ago, people tend to mistake love fo...

You’re Always Becoming
Michelle Obama released her book memoir, „Becoming”, and I keep seeing it everywhere in NYC. I haven’t read it yet and now I really want to. Not because I consider Barack Obam...

Drop This Attitude
I just had my best friend Gosia visited me from Chicago a few weeks ago. We spent the whole weekend together excited about each other. We did a few activities, but what was the most important was th...

Is Your Partner’s Skin Color or Country of Origin Relevant At All?
I will answer the titular question right away: „I don’t think so”. And I’m pretty sure I am right. I honestly don’t understand this whole theory about having a partner ...

How To Get the Body You Want
Have you ever said to yourself: “I’m so fat”…? Or “I can’t even look at myself”…?. Or “I will never lose all this weight”…? Or &l...

Accept the challenge
Until now, my favorite sentence was always: “Hope he’ll change after we get married.” (Yeah,  sure, into a pumpkin…) But there is a new contender that I find equally ...

NY Love Story A.D. 2019
I don’t like romantic comedies. And I can tell you why. Once, it used to be my favorite genre, but I grew up since then (a bit). Also — I moved to NY. Romantic comedies just don’t ...

When Was the Last Time Your Journal Embarrassed You?
When was the last time you said to yourself: “This is embarrassing”, and you actually meant yourself…? Well, it just happened to me. I sat down to write about something else and I...

Why It’s Important To Not Look Like Shit
Here is my question: Why do you think it’s a good idea to look like shit at home? Some people put on their worst clothes at home - clothes with holes, stretched out, worn out, old and ugly. (B...

The New York Pizza’s Secret


Grimaldi’s pizza Pizza is the queen of New York City food. You will find it here at every corner: the price for a slice starts at $1. The classic New York pizza is margherita. You can laugh at this, but I assure you its flavor is completely different than that of any other pizza in the world. You know why? Thanks to the water. I am serious. New York tap water is one of the best in the wor

A Spring Walk In West Village


Since Spring has just come to town (not quite, though, as it was really chilly today), I started visiting my favorite neighborhoods. West Village is definitely one of them. All you need to do is to take one of the orange subway lines (F, M,  D, B), or the blue lines (A, C, E) and get off at West 4 Street. I always start there, right next to the IFC movie theatre – and finish there, as w

NY Food You Need to Try, Part I


There are a couple of things you simply have to taste while in NY. Of course, there’s no end to delicious food in this city. But without these few items your trip over here won’t ever be complete. 1. Bagel, which I already wrote about. It’s an absolute must. Since everyone likes a different topping, I should not try to convince you to have any particular one – and yet I wi

At Night in New York City


I bet many of you imagine New York at night to look like a scene from American crime movies. Of course, there are parts of this town where police chases, shootings and drugs are a reality (no, I have never been there myself). But if you ask me in general if New York is safe, my reply is yes. Especially if we are talking about Manhattan. I am not saying nothing bad ever happens here, for I have h

Where to Get Tickets


NY attractions can well make you dizzy. You come here in hope of seeing so much. You may ask, where do you buy tickets to all those amazing events and objects…? This post will give you some basic information.  Empire State Building – You don’t need to buy tickets earlier, you can get them on the spot. Museums – The above applies to them, as well; remember that mos

Live from NY, it’s Saturday Night Live!!!


Justin & Jimmy These are the words that open one of my favorite TV shows. Many of you are more than familiar with it, but I bet some of you still need to hear about it. Saturday Night Live, or SNL, is one of the most popular shows on American TV. SNL is made in NY, but it was created by the Canadian-born Lorne Michaels. It’s broadcast on Saturday nights (appropriately enough) and it h

Fast Casual, or Fast and Healthy


Have you heard of “fast-casual” places? Me neither, even though I have visited them. These are the places that first appeared in the 1990s, such as Panera or Chipotle, which you find nowadays all over Manhattan. What are they about? Basically, they quickly serve you pre-prepared food that’s not exactly “fast food”. What sets them apart from fast food joints is simpl

„The Lion King” on Broadway


I have wished for a long time for a movie, show or a concert to envelop me completely and make me feel those special vibrations inside that enable me to walk three feet above the ground. And finally they’re here: the beloved butterflies in my stomach. It’s all thanks to Broadway, and more specifically – to the stage version of “The Lion King”. I have no idea how di
