Just letting you know I'll be doing a friends cut soon :( I hate doing these because I know some people would feel upset at me (like I sometimes did when someone I liked cut me) but lately I feel like I don't know half of my t-list. Some of you guys comment pretty often but... I just don't know what to say in your journals? With some others I haven't really connected, and it's been months since the last friending meme so.... I'M SORRY T________________T. Why do I feel so guilty? ;_; Please don't think I dislike you or that I think you're bad people!! You're all lovely and good!

“Every relationship has a cycle… In the beginning; you fall in love with your partner. You anticipate their calls, want their touch, and like their idiosyncrasies. Falling in love wasn’t hard. In fact, it was a completely natural and spontaneous experience. You didn’t have to DO anything. That’s why it’s called “falling” in love. People in love sometimes say, I was swept of my feet. Picture the expression. It implies that you were just standing there; doing nothing, and then something happened TO YOU. Falling in love is a passive and spontaneous experience.

But after a few months or years of being together, the euphoria of love fades. It’s a natural cycle of EVERY relationship.Slowly but surely, phone calls become a bother (if they come at all), touch is not always welcome (when it happens), and your spouse’s idiosyncrasies, instead of being cute, drive you nuts. The symptoms of this stage vary with every relationship; you will notice a dramatic difference between the initial stage when you were in love and a much duller or even angry subsequent stage. At this point, you and/or your partner might start asking, “Am I with the right person?” And as you reflect on the euphoria of the love you once had, you may begin to desire that experience with someone else.

This is when relationships breakdown.

The key to succeeding in a relationship is not finding the right person; it’s learning to love the person you found.People blame their partners for their unhappiness and look outside for fulfillment. Extramarital fulfillment comes in all shapes and sizes.Infidelity is the most common. But sometimes people turn to work, a hobby, friendship, excessive TV, or abusive substances. But the answer to this dilemma does NOT lie outside your relationship. It lies within it.

I’m not saying that you couldn't fall in love with someone else. You could. And TEMPORARILY you’d feel better. But you’d be in the same situation a few years later because (listen carefully to this) the key to succeeding in a relationship is not finding the right person; it’s learning to love the person you found.

SUSTAINING love is not a passive or spontaneous experience. You have to work on it day in and day out. It takes time, effort, and energy. And most importantly, it demands WISDOM. You have to know WHAT TO DO to make it work. Make no mistake about it. Love is NOT a mystery. There are specific things you can do (with or without your partner), just as there are physical laws of the universe (such as gravity), there are also laws for relationships. If you know how to apply these laws, the results are predictable. Love is therefore a “decision”. Not just a feeling.

Remember this always: the universe determines who walks into your life. It is up to YOU to decide who you let walk away, who you let stay, and who you refuse to let go!”

In the past week, social justice and sexism were very present in my life. First, a sort of debate started in Wada's Facebook profile when she wrote something about introverted & extroverted; it was very funny how she asked why don't we forbid an extroverted to not go out of his/her home because he/she hangs out every weekend. She pointed out that most of us would find weird to say that about an extroverted person, because society thinks that hanging out every weekend is "cool" and "normal"; well then forcing an introverted person to hang out when they don't feel like it sounds JUST as weird.
This topic had a strong impact on me because I live those sort of things every single day of my life: people judge me because I spend the weekends at home drawing, or watching movies, or chatting with my overseas friends. People judge me because I'm almost 22 and boyfriend-less (and am not seeking one desperately), because I listen to Korean and Japanese music only, because I'm still a virgin, and the list of etceteras is very long.

And secondly, I experienced a situation of sexism on the streets last Friday when I was waiting for the bus to go home. The bus stop is right next to a big parking lot; a woman inside had turned on the engine of her car and was heading to the exit of the parking lot, when right at the entrance her car stops working, making it impossible for other vehicles to come in or out. Imagine the desperate situation she was in! There's nothing more uncomfortable than that, specially when you know the people around you are NOT tolerant and most of them will judge you if you're a woman driving. Well that's EXACTLY what happened. A man in his 50's or so passed by and I heard him say "Pfh, poor animal, it's obvious she's a fucking woman", to what I responded by yelling like a mad woman something like "YOU FUCKING SEXIST BASTARD" XD. Omg, I just couldn't contain it. What he said sounded so disgusting!! I can't believe a human being can still think that way! .


The self-development blogs I read


A few days (or weeks?) ago, warriorofdream asked me through Twitter about the blogs I read about personal development, positivity and such, and I decided to come up with a list and post it here as well, in case someone might like to read about these things (or you have some other websites to recommend <3).

I'm not just going to leave you links of the blogs below, but share with you my favorites out of their latest posts, so here we gooo~! .

Marc and Angel Hack Life is my favorite blog. They update pretty frequently and even though the content sometimes is a bit repetitive, it helps to make it really sink in your brain until you end up making those thoughts a part of your daily life.

The same happens with Tiny Buddah!

Now Think Simple Now was the first blog I ever followed on these topics, and they certainly have a lot of amazing articles in their archive even though they don't update as frequently as the other two already mentioned above.

Aaaand for the last we have James Clear! I've been consistently reading this blog ever since it started (not so long ago) and I can already tell he really has that something. His articles are very interesting and quite original.

I saved Brute Reason for the very last because I don't think it fits into the same categories as the other ones. Basically, it's an activist blog that I've been reading ever since I started getting informed into feminism and social justice. Every single article in this blog has me thinking for days!

The coming one is the last week of my vacations and one that will be very hectic because I will be preparing my final exams for the ooother week (week of the 29th). That's why this journal will be on hiatus for that period of time).

HIATUS
20/7 ~ 2/8


This just means I won't be posting as often as I usually do . I will keep reading your journals and commenting (if I have anything to say) like usual though .


Teeth Cleaning


Yesterday we sent Pina and Juka to the vet to have their teeth cleaned . They had already run lots of test analysis to check they were alright and would respond just fine to the anesthetics, but the risk was still there . I was scared as shit but thankfully everything went smoothly . The only one who had some trouble was Juka, because he is allergic to one of the components to the anesthetic, so he is still stressed over the procedure . Pina came running from the cages room running towards the reception XDDDD. She was like anything ever happened to her! It must be her thyroid medication *lol*.

She started crying and getting really anxious when she got home, though. We could barely stand it anymore. After around an hour or her crying and shuffling around, we thought that maybe she wanted to pee. She did. She peed and pooed for 20 minutes. We had COMPELTELY FORGOTTEN Pina has really strong manners, so she didn't pee or poo her cage for the whole day. She doesn't even dare to pee in the house, even though we aren't strict about it. She's just like that .

Anyway, here's a before-after picture .





Two days ago I went grocery shopping around the neighborhood with mom and found this cute agenda from 47Street , which is a widely known teen brand here in Argentina (and they basically have the best designs on agendas). They are a tad expensive, but they are worth it . I specially like the organization of this one . The only thing it's lacking is a monthly calendar, but hey, I have the one I have built myself! .



+3 moreCollapse )




Now I'm going to get ready because tonight I'm hanging out with Antonella, my childhood friend that now lives 5 blocks from the place where I study Japanese!
It was so nice seeing her again...! .
And she seems to be the same gentle, humble girl she used to be .

Anyway, see you after the final exams are over!

My post was supposed to be quite positive today but... I just feel really bitchy and upset at the moment and need to let it all out, to the point that I feel like I need advice from you guys.

I never truly lie on my journal (or twitter). I'm just the way you perceive me here: generally very positive, always looking for the good in every person and situation. And as a result of being this way, sometimes I overlook some things that shouldn't be overlooked and end up forgiving/letting pass things that shouldn't be forgiven/let pass. Basically, I feel foolish.

My nearby friends never make the effort to meet up with me when we're barely 30 minutes away from each other's place, and when we do, the things we originally planned never happen. Remember the photoshoot Wada and Cata promised me 2 years ago? Well yeah, it never happened, but we are supposed to do it this month and they haven't even contacted me ever since I ASKED THEM WHEN THEY WANTED TO DO IT AT THE BEGINING OF JUNE.

I feel like I'm not standing for myself. Like I'm not making people respect me and I'm considering my friends people who don't even move a finger to see me and catch up with life.

How is it possible that Marie and Sae, who are over another fucking continent, would meet up with me more frequently than these two if they ever had a chance to be physically close to me? And we don't even need anything complicated: bedroom, snacks and movie times starts rolling and we don't even spend 1 fucking hour planning it. We have a 5 hour difference, unni works a lot, Marinnie studies a lot, I study, do pilates, Japanese and Korean and we STILL find the time to catch up and keep in touch! I don't think they (my nearby friends) have en excuse: if they love and care about me, they WILL make a space in their lives for me, right? Well, that isn't happening, and I'm really tired of going after them, always asking "hey, when can we meet up? I miss you guys".

What do you think about this guys? What are your 'friendship standards'?

. I'm trying to update more frequently because now that I have more time I realize I've missed writing on my journal a lot! ;-; even though half of my f-list has emigrated to other websites lol, which is the reason why I've added a few new people to my friends list. WELCOME TO YOU ALL .

And, as you can see, I drastically changed my LJ layout . Click to see it! jeune_fleur jeune_fleur jeune_fleur. I needed a big change. The old layout reminded me of not so positive things and yeah, I know it's just a layout but... you know XDDD . I love how it became simpler and how I gradually came back to my beloved flowers lol. I can never part from them! .


Bedroom decor


To start with, I want to show you two new pieces of furniture I got from my boss (or should I say ex-boss/call her by her name? XD). They are just two simple square boxes, but they came in so useful! I spent two mornings painting them white to match my room (they were originally pink and green) and also re-organized my stuff in that corner a little better .


Overall look of how that part of my room looks like now. Yes, I was in my pajamas XD.

Detail picturesCollapse )



El Tigre


Past Saturday my mother, grandma and I went to El Tigre, one of my favorite places to go . Fortunately this time we explored some galleries we hadn't explored before, and found an amazing store full of beautiful dresses! . I had foudn a really beautiful black chiffon dress with red flowers and gosh, I was so tempted to buy it, but last minute I decided not to, because I don't want to owe my parents any money. I can live without a dress (did I just say that for real? ).
We also saw some cute puppies for adoption in the gallery . There is like a tiny adoption shop there that encourages people to adopt instead of buying, on which I totally agree because there are so many poor stray dogs that need love and a good home . Next time I go I promise to take more and better pictures! .

I don't have an outfit shot, because everything was improvised and I had to do my make-up, hair and choose an outfit in 20 minutes. Hahaha, record time for me! .
I just have two selcas I took in the car on our way there.



Some snaps of the place and gifts from mom!Collapse )



Game of Thrones



Started watching it with Marie and Sae and OH MY GOSH I CAN'T STOP WATCHING THIS, LEMME SPAZZ SAJBFVAYGVADYUFCASTFRDCUS. No but really, this show is SO GOOD! . I must admit it took me 7 episodes to really get into it (yeah, almost the entire season lol) because I thought at first it was really boring, but now that I'm almost finishing season 1 I must admit that all those episodes full of family/royal drama were necessary.

And one of the most relevant things about it is that Marie confirmed that a dragon would appear and jesus, that has me so ajbsjahbs because I have a huge crush on dragons and I just can't wait to see one in this series! So basically the word I repeat the most while watching this with the girls is "Gimme a dragon", "I really need a dragon", "Wae you no gimme dragon" and the list of phrases containing the word "dragon" goes on XD. All this dragon obsession of mine gave birth to my new nickname............... SORAGON. I... sound like a digimon... XDDDD. BUT I DUN CARE, CAUSE I'MMA GET MY DRAGON </s>and a lot of things ofc, like Joffrey tragically dying with his balls ripped</s>.

FRIENDS CUT

I saw this coming. I have changed a lot since last year so I decided to make a little LJ cut. Please don't be offended if I cut you and don't bitch at me. I'm doing this to feel more comfortable with my place.

If I cut you, it may be because...
1) We never/hardly ever talked.
2) You stopped commenting on my entries.
3) I lost interest in your life.
4) You don't post in English/Spanish anymore.
5) Because we have no interests in common anymore.

Hi! My name is Florencia but people call me Sora more often. Any way you decide to call me is okay - I am comfortable with both names. I'm in my 20's and I live in Buenos Aires (Argentina), a place I hate with all my heart and wish to move out from in the next couple years. I have the INFJ personality type. I speak Spanish (native), English (sort of fluent), Japanese and Korean, and I'm intending to graduate from college as a fashion designer in July 2014.

I'm usually easy-going, sensitive and introverted, which makes me very sensitive to my surroundings and people's feelings. Sometimes I get paranoid when my friends don't speak to me for a while and I start imagining all the worst case scenario (such as "OMG THEY STOPPED LOVING ME" when in reality they had a doctor appointment they forgot to tell me about <.<). I'm also very passive-aggressive when I get mad at someone, but don't worry, I'm currently working on that and I'm doing better!

I have trust issues. I have gotten better since 2010, but after one of the most important persons of my life betrayed me back in December 2013, those problems have sort of resurfaced and now I am very wary of the people I let into my life. I am the kind of person who won't reach out to you if she needs help because I'm afraid of being judged like my previous friendships did once.


Beliefs: I feel very intimidated by religion. My whole life I was forced to believe in God, in Jesus and the Bible so that's probably why. Therefore I am not a Christian at all. I actually hate it when people try to convince me otherwise, so please don't try to. I do have a set of beliefs, the strongest one being karma. I am also a feminist and I like to inform myself about social justice everyday.

Occupation/career: I'm currently unemployed (until I finish college), and I'm working hard to better my abilities and learn new ones to become a better professional. Not only with design, but I'm also interested in illustrating.

Friends: I talk very often about Sae unni (eyeflower), my best friend, my sister, my second mother. She's one of the most important persons of my life because 5 years ago she saved me from my last attempt at comitting suicide. She taught me most of my current values, encouraged me to keep going and trust myself. She probably knows me more than I know myself! I often post about the movies, series and anime we watch together. I talk to Fuuey and Umi unnies pretty often as well. I got to meet them thanks to Sae; they have been friends for a very long time, and I just recently "joined the group" lol. We talk about different types of things all the time on kakaotalk. Offline, I don't have many friends. Only Wada and Cata who I don't see as often as I'd like.

Pets: I have two maltese dogs: Pina (f) and Juka (m). I talk more often about Pina because she lives in the house with me, while Juka lives with my grandma and doesn't like having pictures taken XD.

Other interests/hobbies: photography, drawing, learning languages, designing graphics for my accounts, reading, sports and exercise, coffee, tea, discovering new music, collecting dolls, Monster High.

My goal with fashion (and basically my whole existence): I enjoy every single second of my day as much as possible. I embrace the good and the bad moments and I let myself be vulnerable when I have to be, for there is where my strength comes from. I believe we all came to this life for a reason, and I believe I am here and exist to create beautiful things that will make the world brighter, to spread words that encourage confidence and love in people, to reach out a helping hand when needed. I am here to learn and teach. I exist to believe in people when others don't believe in them, to tell people that having feelings and being human is okay. But I mainly exist to prove to you that there is an alternative to what society says you should be doing and being. With fashion my main goal is to create what the globalized fashion industry isn't offering: girly, elegant, cute designs that are interesting enough to be unique but don't require a million weird cuts or difficult ways to button/zip up. I'd also like to have some sort of impact in body image, expanding the variety of sizes in the industry.
I don't want to be the typical designer who tells you what you should wear or not either. While I do have my preferences in fashion and the fact I have an education on the matter doesn't mean I have the right to force people to feel less or ridiculed for the way they match their clothes. Your clothes - your decision. I have no say in that! All I am capable of doing is offer you a service that will satisfy your needs.
