As of today, I have removed some inactive accounts, people I didn't end up clicking with and haven't left a single comment to my journal for 6 months straight.


No hard feelings though ♥ it was lovely meeting you, and I hope you don't take this harshly!

Zodiac sign: Libra.


The Family


— I live with my mother and grandmother (from my mom's side).
— My parents got divorced (not legally though) in 2009. Since then, dad ocassionally comes over but there's not much depth into our relationship. We get along but that's it.
— Our family is very small. Mom, dad, grandma, my uncle and his girlfriend, and that's it.
— I have a maltese dog called Juka (M). He's actually living with grandma so I don't spend that much time with him.
— My own dog, the one that actually lives with me, is called Kea (F). She's been with us ever since we lost our Pina on the 11th of August of 2016.


The Relationships


— My best friends are Sae, Fuuey and Umi. They all live in Sweden, they are Swedish.
— I met Sae first on LiveJournal in 2010, if I'm not mistaken. I started talking to Fuuey and Umi at the begining of 2013 (they are childhood friends with Sae).
— I met Sae for the first time face to face in October 2015 when I traveled to South Korea.
— And I met Umi and Fuuey for the first time in June 2017 when I visited Stockholm.
— I don't have any super close friendships in Argentina. I hardly ever hang out, unless it's with mom.
— I do get along really well with my Japanese classmates. In the summer, we attend Japanese festivals that are held in our country together.
— I don't mention them that often, but I do love my boss's daughters a lot. Guillermina is starting her teen years (she's 11); she's closest to me and it's ridiculous just how many of my habits she picked up ever since she was a baby. Her sister Francisca is 8 years-old and she's closer to my mother.
— Then there's my LJ friends as well <333. I can't think of my life without the people I have in my f-list!


The Job


— Even though I'm technically "a boss", I don't have anyone directly working for me, unless we count our external suppliers who have to pretty much cater to my every wish XD.
— I travel overseas to research fashion trends twice a year. It's usually to New York, Madrid and even China is on the table.
— I have been a victim of harassment from the hands of one of my coworkers more than once. He got fired almost two years ago, but no one ever did anything to stop him or protect me.
— I'm currently not happy with my job, but it's good money and it's like a means to an end.


Facts about me


— I'm an introvert.
— I'm currently trying to define my sexuality. I know I'm heterosexual... but I think I might be ace. Again, still in the research process.
— I'm a social justice warrior.
— I can't remember the exact date nor year, but I tried to commit suicide years ago. My friend Sae saved me from myself, yes, even through the distance, and no, no one closer to me physically cared enough to help me.
— I have a public fashion and lifestyle blog called Dangerously Me that I'm very proud of.


My Tattoos




220417 — My first tattoo

I got my first tattoo on April of 2017. I had wanted one for so long, and I finally decided to give in to the pain and get one. The pain was a 2 on a scale of 1 to 10 (this is why I chose that part of my body to have my first tattoo done).

It symbolizes my thrist for travel.

I decided to mix it with the looks of mandala because I want my tattoos to have this aesthetic in the future + some flowers.


My Hobbies


— Fashion. I love dressing up and coming up with outfits in a fun way. I like to have fun with clothes so usually my style is pretty chaotic/eclectic. I seem to have two different alter egos for dressing up. I'm either a frilly, floral prints and lace princess, or a rocker girl.
— Blogging. Not only on this blog, but on my public one as well. I love social media as well and connecting with others. I think blogging has opened so many doors for so many people, and has let many of us grieve, cope and heal.
— Writing. Of course. Writing is healing to me, especially when I write about something I care about.
— Shopping. Can't lie to you! I love shopping and spending money on clothes.
— Traveling. There's nothing more significant in my life than getting to know new places.
— Crocheting. I started in 2017 and I'm not planning on stopping! I'm making both clothes and amigurumi dolls.
— Photography. Granted, I don't study much from my DSRL camera, but I do enjoy taking photos of pretty much everything.
— Languages. I'm a nerd! I love learning languages. I learnt English on my own, by reading, writing and chatting with people from overseas. I study Japanese since 2007. I dropped Korean long ago, but I studied for 2 years in 2012. I'm currently learning Swedish on my own!


The Fandom


— I'm not interested THAT much in fandom.
— I enjoy a wide variety of shows, but I tend to like comedy and fantasy ones the most. I do watch the occasional historical drama but I'm not very fond of that.
— The only consistent, constant, fandoms in my life are SHINee and Harry Potter.
— My favorite person in the world is Kibum (Key) from SHINee.
— I love listening to k-pop music!
— My favorite non-korean artist is Lady Gaga.

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!”
