Intro Post  
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.

I was pretty sure I had added you back then, with the friending meme ;A; OMG, I'm so SO sorry I didn't.
Seems like we have a lot in common! I would love to study something with fashion, but─ yeah, there are not a lot of choices in my country lmao So I ended up studying translation and interpreting (which I LOVE!) but fashion is something I will always ALWAYS like. ♥

(once again, I'm sorry I didn't add you back ;v; I was checking lj emails when I realized that. I was wondering where was my neighbor lmao)

AND! by the way! your intro is SO adorable. ♥ this is just so random, lmao

Hello! This is more than a little random, but I found you through Rabby. I see you comment on her entries pretty often and I ALWAYS come to visit your journal because of your Key icons. XD;; I am also a Shawol, though an MVP and closet Blinger myself. ^^ I am a big fan of Kpop and I was wondering if it would be okay to add you as a friend? :D
YCassieycassie on September 8th, 2012 03:11 pm (UTC)
Aqui una amante más de Ayu y del Kpop en general (JYJ en particular, jejeje!!) y Cassie 4EVER (of course!!). Espero poder conocerte mucho mejor.

Hello there! I've been seeing you around here and there and finally decided to drop by your page. It turns out we have a lot in common =)
+Spanish, English, Studying Japanese
+reading, animals,dorama, kpop...basically everything in your "Loves" paragraph.
+Everything in your dislikes
+Most of your music, though I'm just getting in to VK.

I have to say I also love your layout! It's so cute =)
소라jeune_fleur on December 28th, 2012 06:21 pm (UTC)
Oh, we have a lot fo things in common indeed! :D *adds*. I've seen you around as well - can totally recall your icon and username!!

May I ask if you just like the Spanish language or you know it? :3

Thankies!
kurikuribebikurikuribebi on December 30th, 2012 03:38 pm (UTC)
I want to say that I know it. My family is Puerto Rican and my mom doesn't speak any English, but because of all the time I spend away from my family either working or travelling, my Spanish ability is quickly being replaced my English and Japanese =(

I'm relearning it though!

Hi there! I initially saw you on an lj_releases post but I was wondering if you might like to be friends :) Your LJ layout is BEAUTIFUL (I hope it won't be affected by all of LJ's new changes...) and we have a lot of stuff in common, like kpop, jpop, anime, pixels, and an enjoyment of fashion and decorating stuff. I like taking pictures too but I definitely need to buy new camera :p Looks like we have a lot of music in common too! I think we have a few mutual friends as well. Let me know if you don't mind me adding you!
소라jeune_fleur on February 23rd, 2013 10:24 pm (UTC)
Hey, thanks! ^w^. Yeah I hope LJ won't screw up even more than it already has because I luv my layout ;-;

Adding right away <3. We do have a lot of stuff in common!
b ♥beautifully on November 11th, 2013 01:52 pm (UTC)
Hi, I saw your comment in perfection and I'd like to be friends. :) Adding you!
소라jeune_fleur on November 11th, 2013 09:13 pm (UTC)
Yay! Thanks for adding me <3.

Hi, I found you through a mutual friend (she actually commented above me - burger) :D I love your layout! We seem to have some things in common, such as kpop, anime, and studying Korean. I am really interested and would like to know more about fashion as well. Would you like to be friends?
소라jeune_fleur on January 19th, 2014 09:45 pm (UTC)
Oh heyy! :D Yeah sure, we can be friends ^^.

Are you currently studying Korean on your own or with a professor? c:
Meena: she's being silly (seohyun)evathereal on January 20th, 2014 03:26 am (UTC)
I took an online class (http://www.learnkoreanonline.net/) to learn hangul and the basics a while back. Then I took a beginning korean class when I did a study abroad for the summer in Seoul a couple of years ago. That's when I learned (and spoke) the most! Now I don't have much of an opportunity to speak it, but I try to keep up with what I learned from the class. It's hard to study on my own, but I always try, haha. What about you? :)
소라jeune_fleur on January 20th, 2014 11:10 am (UTC)
I studied the basic level of Korean at the Korean Cultural Center from my country, but I quit after 2 years because they were too strict, to the point I even started failing college because of it o_o. Then I pretty much tried to study at home but it's really hard to be consistent... it's also really hard because sometimes there are some words you use in certain situations that dictionaries or websites don't tell you about, which is why I think it's good to have a professor, but unfortunately there's no other place here to learn Korean :(
Meena: she's being silly (seohyun)evathereal on January 21st, 2014 03:18 am (UTC)
Wow, 2 years! That's pretty nice. But sucks that it was too time consuming and strict. T_T It's hard to learn a language on top of everything else you have to study. :( That's part of the reason I have trouble studying Korean, because of all the other schoolwork I have to do.

I learned Korean the best from a professor, so I definitely agree with you there. My class was a beginner's level class for 6 weeks. It wasn't very long, but I learned quite a bit. However, I wish I could learn more or take another class. I don't have any place here to learn Korean either. :( I just listen to kpop/watch kdramas (and try not to look at the subtitles, but I haven't quite mastered that!)

Heyyyy, we're both INFJs! I'm always so excited and pleased to meet other INFJs that I simply had to comment and let you know! ♥

Also, I'm super impressed that you've got four languages under your belt. I speak English and French, but I'm currently in beginning-level classes for Spanish and Italian. How are Japanese and Korean going for you? A friend of mine is studying Korean independently and says it's quite difficult if your native language is a Western one, but I've also heard that Japanese is a bit easier to pick up. In the future I'd love to broaden my horizons and learn one of those!

P.s. I find your journal layout to be so cute. ^.^
소라jeune_fleur on March 1st, 2014 08:00 pm (UTC)
Aww, that's cool! :DDD I wish more people found out their personality type, because it'd be interesting to know how many of us are out there ^^.

Tbh, I'm not THAAAT fluent in Japanese and Korean yet. Ashamed of Japanese, because I've been "studying" for 7 years but when I was a teenager (and had time) I didn't study :/ then I started Korean and now I find it hard to keep up both languages.

Japanese is not hard, but it isn't easy either. Kanji are a pain in the ass D: But Korean and Japanese are very similar in grammar and even vocabulary so it was very easy for me to learn the latter ^^.

Btw, I think you'd liek to re-read my intro post. I JUST finished updating it XDDDDDDDDDDDDD.
The Winter Soldier: svu // partnershundredcoffees on March 2nd, 2014 06:14 am (UTC)
I know, right? I'm always encouraging people to take the MBTI test because I feel such joy when I find out a friend is also an INFJ! I think one of my friends is an INFP, so that's close at least!

Aw, no worries! The fact that you're even making the effort to learn them is really cool and impressive. I know it's tough to keep up multiple languages at once. I'm doing Spanish and Italian at the same time, and they're tough to keep up simultaneously, but since they're classes at my college my motivation is coming from fear of getting bad grades, hahaha. But it's been a year since I've taken a French class, and I can feel myself losing some vocab, which is so sad. :( Thank goodness grammar and such doesn't fade away as fast!

Aw, cool! I'd really like to try a language that's out of my comfort zone, meaning not a romance language, hahaha. It'd be a challenge, but I think it'd really be great!

Oooh, will do!

I really enjoyed reading your intro post! I know we had each other added for a while, but reading intros or bios really re-freshens my memory of everything I already know and sometimes I learn something new when an intro post has got updated! =)

I would very much like to follow you on pinterest, tumblr and other websites! :D I actually have a pinterest and tmblr account.. but its been a while since I been on tmblr and I honestly haven't done much on there, but I plan on being active on there! It's been a rough couple of months for me as you already know, but it would be nice to follow you on those websites. :D I log on pinterest every once in a while. It can become too addicting for me. XD

<3

Add me add me! :D And tell me so I can add you back ^_^.

I've noticed that we have a couple of things in common. You like: Alice in Wonderland (which I'm in love with), anime, writing, languages, and writing. Can we be friends? Oh, and your layout is beautiful!
Coco Jewels: !friends!cocojewels on July 18th, 2014 11:31 pm (UTC)
Hello. When I first came here, I didn't know that I would be surprised by what I found. You look very intresting and somewhere, we do share some intrests about lifestyle, self-improvement and positivity. Moreover, I do admire your ambition and I also share that character with you, so would you be my friend ? :)
소라jeune_fleur on July 20th, 2014 10:23 am (UTC)
Hi! I'm sorry but may I ask you where did you find me? ^^. I'm a bit paranoid of the people I let into my journal T_T.
Coco Jewels: !coffee!cocojewels on July 21st, 2014 04:05 am (UTC)
Of course ! I was willing to extend my f-list and I noticed that you've been friend with a very good friend of mine named Zia @kurikuribebi , you can check on our personal facebook we've been friends for years now :) if you wanna actually check if I'm a real person, I'm very active on my journal :)
