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...

Bumbling Around


Me and a couple of friends have been chatting recently at a bar and we all started gossiping about a guy we see there often. He’s a cute, thirtyish, innocently looking American guy who keeps bringing to the place newer and newer girls. We saw him a few times with the same woman (they were tenderly hugging), which meant unfortunately that the girl didn’t know yet that she was being pl

Red Flag, or When You Know You Better Let This One Go


You meet a nice guy, you think that “this is it”, but at the same time you feel it’s not quite right. Here are 10 surefire signs that you should just let the guy go. I base those on my own experiences and on experiences of my girlfriends – both in Poland and here in NY. 1.       He’s not replying to your text messages on the same day.

Date No. 1: Screwing on the Choo-Choo


Since summer has finally arrived – and with it, dozens of sexy guys in tank tops – I was reminded of several dating stories me and my girlfriends have experienced in NYC. I decided to share some of them, without revealing the identities of the girls (or the guys, whose names I frankly don’t remember). Today’s heroine’s name is Anna. I wrote many times on Just Like

Do I Have Time For You…? Or: Why Dating in NY Is So Difficult


I recently read an article on dating in NY, which confirmed once again that it’s one of the most difficult activities in this town (which I already wrote about). As I said before on this blog, there are several reasons for that, but the longer I live here, the more I can see the source of them all. The most common scenario – which has happened both to me and to my female friends &nd

Singular Wisdom


I never did this before, but a piece in Time Out New York amused me so much, I decided to copy it here and allow you to enjoy it, too. What follows is a bunch of sentences by NYC singles and I believe every one of them to be true. „I braved a snowstorm at 1am to get AA batteries from the bodega for my vibrator”. “I pretty frequently sit in bed and cry tears of happiness onto

Ocean of small fry


I don’t agree that internet dating is necessarily a sign of desperation, as is still believed by many. Nowadays, when we basically live hooked up to the internet, no one should be shocked that we also meet one another online. I decided to try it, too, because… why not? There’s a multitude of dating websites in the US; the one that was recommended to me is called Plenty of Fish

Dating in NYC – Part III


My previous post was on J.C. Davies’ „I Got the Fever” – a book on interracial and cross-cultural relationships. A quick look on the cover could make us think the subject of the book is hot sex (the truth is, the book deals with the subject: apparently Hindus and Latinos really know how to treat a woman in bed). But first and foremost this is a book that has plenty of use

Dating in NY – Part II - We got the fever


You come to NY and suddenly you discover that what the city has to offer are not only its attractions, but men from all around the globe. Let’s say one day you decide to have a piece of the pie. But before you cry out “Let’s have some fun!” and start exploring American territory for its most valuable resource (men!), you should read a book called “I Got the Fever&rd
