Step 44 - How Do You See Yourself?
photo by http://www.wdkproductions.com/ I wonder what kind of picture of yourself do you have in your own mind? I’m not asking about the one you present to the world, but about the real ...

Walk with me, Part 4 – Nolita
Nolita is right next to Soho and I was thinking of putting these two walks together – and you could do that of course – but there are just too many things to explore in each neighborhood s...

Step 43: Have the Courage to Stand Alone
Photo by wdkproductions.com I heard this sentence: “Have the courage to stand alone”, spoken by Brene Brown in a conversation with Marie Forleo a few weeks ago, and it keeps ringing in ...

Walk with Me, Part 3 – Soho
  Soho is one of my favorite places in NY. And it’s not because of the fancy stores (I don’t have the desire to buy a Chanel bag, I want someone to give me that bag for free.) It's...

Step 42 – How do we not go crazy?
It’s very easy to go crazy in NY. It’s way too easy. That’s why at some point, you have to slow down and ask yourself how your mind is doing. There are a few different ways I ...

Step 41 – Close the Open Tabs
I recently noticed that everyone, including myself, says, “OMG, this month passed by so fast! Where did the time go?” And I feel that every year we say it more often. Have you noticed th...

The Bridges of Madison County - A Cautionary Tale
I’ve been coming back to old movies recently and watched one of my favorite movies of all time – “The Bridges of Madison County” with my favorite actress, Meryl Str...

Brooklyn vs. Manhattan
It’s funny how Manhattan and Brooklyn are different, even though they are only a river away. They are actually just one subway stop away (which is a few minutes’ distance). A lot of peop...

Women’s Surf Film Festival
I finally attended Women’s Surf Film Festival that took place at Rockaway Beach Surf Club on the last Friday and Saturday of July. I didn’t see all the movies (they’re mostly short...

Birthday
35 years ago, a miracle happened and I came into this world. And everything changed. I’m kidding. Nothing changed, except for the fact that the world got a bit confused. When I was a little ...

Yelp & Health
If you are running a restaurant business in NYC, you always fear of two things: Health Department and Yelp reviews. Health Department comes to a restaurant once a year and checks everything &ndash...

Racism Is Still Alive
I just had a chance to watch a new movie called “Crown Heights” and I must say it was a really painful screening for me. Had I watched it back in Poland, I would probably look at it as j...

Hunting Season is Now Open


Columbus Circle, Manhattan, April 1st 2016 And so it has started. As soon as the temperature went over 50 degrees Fahrenheit, New York City began to change as if were a butterfly emerging from a cocoon (to be fair, it’s more like a butterfly turning into a beautiful bird). Everything is blooming, especially the people. Besides, it looks like someone brought in an extra delivery of a few m

My Online Dating Experience


I recently wrote of what does it feel like to arrive in NYC and get swept off one’s feet. After my first couple of months here, my friend talked me into putting up a profile on one of the dating websites, telling me how much fun it was. Of course, I was too lazy to take care of it myself, so she created the profile for me at the aptly named “Plenty of Fish” platform. I have to

To Be Single in a Big City


You’re a single woman and you arrive in NYC. What should you do? 1. First of all – don’t panic. I know that as you walk those streets for the first time, you’re dizzy, for at every corner there’s a handsome guy… But it’s crucial that you don’t get under their spell at the start. Take a deep breath and don’t get caught – somehow, those

Fear vs. Happiness. Why Stay Stuck In a Bad Relationship?


I haven’t been in a relationship in a while, since I focused on discovering who I am and developing a relationship with myself and with the city – as well as on simply surviving in NYC. Given all that, some people will probably say I have no business giving my opinions on relationships. Maybe so, but I’m gonna give one anyway. I am looking from the side, I look from a different

Will The Cheaters Keep On Cheating?


As I sat at Starbucks yesterday waiting for my friend, I overheard a loud conversation between two baristas. I don’t know why, but suddenly I turned their way and one of them, a handsome guy in his early twenties (who earlier addressed me as “madam”, which only goes to prove you won’t cheat your wrinkles), asked me: “Do you agree with me?”. When I admitted I h

Booty Call


Being single is shrouded in many myths, but the biggest one is the one regarding sex. Couples tend to think that we single people have someone new every night (wishful thinking). Sure, we would like that, but it’s more complicated than you’d think (we have our careers to focus on, after all). As I started writing down my thoughts on the world of single people’s sex life, I ins

Dating is Hard Work


How does look a date in New York look like? Why even ask about it? Are you familiar with the saying: “It’s the journey that matters, not the destination?”. Hell, yeah: you better remember that one if you start dating in NYC. You meet a guy. HE’S STRAIGHT! Yup, it can really happen! You exchange numbers, he says something about a meeting. Magic, isn’t it?! It even l

Where To Meet a Guy?


East Village Every time I hear the question: “Where do I meet a guy?”, I smile. I wrote about that already. What do you mean: where? Girl, go to a bar! Not to a club where everyone is dancing like crazy and you can never be sure just how much coke has anyone snorted (for some reason, coke seems to be all the rage). Go to a bar. And don’t take your girlfriends with you, so that
