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...

You Have to Kiss a Lot of Frogs To… Find the Frog That Rises to Your Standards
I’ve had a few men in my life so far, and they always disappeared at some point (nowadays, I realize that they actually did me a favor). Once, I used to think it was the end of the world, but ...

You Have To Punch Back
There is a saying in NY: If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere. And there is a reason for that. I always say that a relationship with this city is like a relationship with an abusive boy...

Why Does Time Have Value
I recently noticed that I’m able to guess how long a person have lived in NYC. It’s not that I know the exact number of years, but I can recognize if someone has been living here for jus...

Wait For the Understanding Nod
I recently chatted on Instagram with a guy (we haven’t met in real life, he just saw my photos on social media) and he said this thing, and I quote: “How come you’re still single? ...

Step 63 - It’s All About Priorities
I know a guy in NY who doesn’t like to spend money on a cup of coffee. He doesn’t understand why anyone would spend $6 on a cup of coffee when you can pay $15 for a whole bag. But at the...

“The Top Five Regrets of Dying” - Regret Number One
This is a continuation of my posts about Bronnie Ware’s “The Top Five Regrets of Dying,” this being the last one. I wrote about Regret Numbers Five, Four, Three and Two here. Regr...

Love is Born
I watched “A Star is born” recently and can’t stop thinking about this movie.  It’s a story that has been told in Hollywood many times already: that of a seasoned mus...

Step 62 - Your Opinion of Me Is None of My Business


Yeah, I know. The second you hear the sentence I chose for the title of this post, it sounds very cocky to you. It sounds like my self-esteem is sky-rocketing and my ego is bursting at the seams. But the fact is, this sentence is about something else completely. The first time I heard it, it came from Brene Brown, the author I look up to and who inspires me. And it blew my mind. It’s

“The Top Five Regrets of the Dying” - Regret Number Five


For some reason, I’ve kept seeing again the list of “The Top 5 Regrets of the Dying” poping up recently all the time. It’s a list created by Bronnie Ware, based on her best- selling book that was hugely popularized by „The Guardian”.   These five regrets of people facing death are:  1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to mysel

Step 61 - Forget About “Finding Your Passion”


I’ve already written in Just Like NY about “looking for a passion,” but I have a few new thoughts on the subject.  First of all, forget about this trend of “live your passion.” It just gives people headaches. What if you don’t have one? You’ll start looking for one? If you’re in the middle of that, you’d better stop that. It’s

Make Your Own Choice


I was recently called out on holding a supposedly strongly stance against marriage. Since it happened twice in one month, I feel like something I said was actually lost in translation.  I never said I was against marriage. I also never said I’m pro marriage. Sometimes I do understand why people want to get married – and sometimes I completely don’t. I learn that everyone

What’s the deal with meditation?


I don’t know what it’s like everywhere else, but here in the US, meditation has become very popular, to the point where companies hire teachers to give meditation classes to their employees.  Before I start, let me just deal with a few myths. You don’t have to be a Buddhist, a vegan or a hippie (or all three of them at once) to do it

Step 60 - What Does It Really Mean To Leave Your Comfort Zone?


“Leaving the comfort zone” became a very common phrase these past few years. It is associated with the idea of breaking free from the life you’ve had so far – with starting new things and changing the old patterns. Many people think that the most courageous “leaving the comfort zone” acts they can come up with are: (1) quitting their job (2) breaki

Step 59 - How Many (Facebook) Friends Do You Need?


        I remember when Facebook first came into our lives, we were all kind of proud of the fact that our friend count was growing. The more there is social media in our lives, the more I realize how delusional we all were.    How many friends do you need? I think that the less you have, the better off you ar

Step 58 - Are You Able To Let Your Old Self Go?


I’m lucky enough to have a few friends whom I can share my fears, tears and happy moments with. These are friends with whom I can go through any emotional rollercoaster. It’s very important, because it so happens that both me and them decided to change something in our respective lives. We decided we want to grow and… Boy, I can tell you, that’s difficult! The mor
