About Me

— My birth name is Florencia, but people in the internet and close friends call me Sora.
— I live in Buenos Aires (Argentina), and I truly dislike it.
— I am a fashion designer, graduated July 2014. Since August 2015 I've been working for a retail company called Carrefour, more specifically their clothing brand TeX. I'm head designer of kids, babies and menswear design.
— I'm a Libra (90% of the time accuarate) and my personality type is INFJ.
— I consider myself a "social justice warrior".
— I don't consider myself an atheist, but I'm not religious either? Like, I do not deny that God exists... but I just don't care enough to spend time trying to figure it out? LOL. It's more like I don't need religion ^^;
— I've been studying Japanese since March 2007.

My Family

— I live with my mother and grandmother (from my mom's side).
— My parents got divorced (not legally though) 2 years ago. Dad ocassionally comes over but we try not to see much of him. My relationship with him is practically non-existent.
— Our family is very small. Mom, dad, grandma, my uncle and his girlfriend, and that's it.
— My uncle has a bulldog named Ilma.
— Our land has two houses in it. At the front there's my house and at the back, grandma's. In the middle there's our garden.
— 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 passed away on the 11th of August 2016, Pina (F). — My current pet Kea (F) appeared in my life on the first days of October and I just couldn't say no to a new furry friend.

My friends:

— My best friends are Sae, Fuuey and Umi. They all live in Sweden.
— 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 actually visited Sae in South Korea in October 2015. It was amazing!
— I don't have any super close friendships in Argentina. I hardly ever hang out, unless it's with mom.
— The closest I have to friends here, are my Japanese classmates.

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 (March and September).
— I have been victim of harassment from the hands of one of my coworkers more than once and no one's ever done anything to s
top him.
— Therefore you can only imagine how much I trust and respect my team.

The Fandom

— My favorite movie is "How To Train Your Dragon".
— I like to watch anime and Japanese and Korean dramas.
— I enjoy fantasy TV shows the most (like Once Upon A Time, for example).
— You could say that Harry Potter is my religion :P
— I listen to K-pop the most, but I also like listening to Japanese music, soundtracks and some of the popular songs nowadays.
— I love watching anime!

Hobbies and Passions

— I collect dolls! First, I started with porcelain dolls. Now I'm collecting Monster High and Ever After High dolls.
— I love photography! I got my DSLR back in 2014 and I'm still learning lots about it :) it's a Nikon D5200.
— Traveling is one of my favorite things in the world.

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

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

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 [ profile] 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!

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!

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?

Oh heyy! :D Yeah sure, we can be friends ^^.

Are you currently studying Korean on your own or with a professor? c:

I took an online class ( 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? :)

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 :(

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. ^.^

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.

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

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 ? :)

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.

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 :)
