Williamsburg Is Over
Summer’s almost here, so I decided to take a walk in Williamsburg, and it just reassured me that… thinks are really over for this neighborhood. I moved to Greenpoint (a sister neighbor...

Love has been on my mind recently (and probably has been unconsciously for a while now) and I started thinking about where to find it. I know it’s a pretty odd thing (you can&rsqu...

We all pretend it’s normal…
We all pretend that life in NY is normal. Just today I had the day off, which isn’t usually for a Thursday, and I decided to go to the gym before noon. I got on a train at 10am and...

What If I Told You That You Can Have a Different Life?

Poor Rich Kids

Do You Want To Be Famous?

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...

Where I Am Now and Where I Want To Be

Since I keep saying that you should follow your dreams and that I believe you can get what you envision for yourself (or, to put it simply – the story you’re telling yourself is the life you’re living), I want to be a living example of that. i just want to prove to you that everything is possible. I want to be accountable for my own words and my own actions.

I do say these things because I believe they’re true. And if I believe they’re true, I should have the life I imagined for myself, right? Do I have it…? Not yet, but I believe I will, because whatever I’ve got right now, is exactly what I wanted to have 5 years ago, before I moved to NY. I wanted: to live in NY (done), to afford living in Brooklyn (done), to write (done), to explore and have fun in NY (done), to have friends in NY (done), to go to California (done), to surf (done). These were my goals five years ago. And I’m proud to say I accomplished them.

And now, five years later, I have new goals, of course.  I’m changing, so my goals are changing, too. But there are a few things that are still on my list that I haven’t accomplished yet. let’s put them in the air and see what happens in a few years.

I always wanted to have a luxury life. What does that mean? It means that I wanted to go to places, stay in luxury hotels and not worry if I can afford that. I haven’t gotten there yet – I can travel twice a year (but can afford only USA for now), and have road trips meanwhile, but I can’t afford expensive hotels… yet. I also want to buy nice stuff. It doesn’t mean I want to run to Prada store every season to buy a new bag (how many bags do you need, anyway?), but I do want to own good-quality stuff. And I want to be able to afford it before I turn 38.

I want to live in SoHo with my partner. And that’s a goal for the next two years. I live in far Brooklyn with a roommate now. 2019 is the latest I want to live in my favorite neighborhood in Manhattan. How can I do it? No idea, but I know I will figure that out.

I want to make money on my blog and my writing. I don’t make money on it yet, but I know I will. Making money on my website was never my priority, I just had and still have this huge desire to write and I knew I’d be doing that no matter what. But now it became my priority, because I want to make money on my passion. People do it, so can I too. I just don’t want to spend eight hours a day doing things (that are called “a job”) that are not my passion. It’s just a waste of life.

I want to surf around the world.

And as I mentioned above, yes, I do want to have a partner, someone who inspires me. It wasn’t my priority, either, but I put it on my list now. But what changed in me is who I want to be with. I always said that I wanted to be with someone “who has a great potential”. And that’s very nice of me, but it’s not my thinking anymore. Potential is still just potential. I want a partner who is accomplished and is doing the work. A wise guy who improves something he’s already established or is reaching out for new stuff. If I can put in the work and get where I want to, he has to be like that, too. Otherwise I’m not interested.

Summary – starting from 2019, I want to have a luxury life, live in SoHo, make money of my passion, surf and have an established and wise partner. You can call me crazy, or naïve and I will just say – see you in 2019. Am I not afraid to put this list online? No, I’m not.

Make your list soon. And most importantly – believe in your vision. Who cares what others think? The most important thing is what you think about it. And even more important is what are you planning on doing about it?
