The moment when I found out I was not the only one addited to Target.

I had always heard of Target and of course I’ve seen the commercials with the cute dog, but I never found myself shopping there. Until about a year ago that I moved from Miami to New Orleans and I found myself in need of a new pair of black pants for a job interview. So as I drove from store to store having no luck with my hunt, my mother calls and asked me to get some milk. So I thought to myself “I’ll try Target, and maybe I’ll get the pants and the milk”. Two hours later as I drove home with the back seat of my car full of bags containing my new black pans, kitchen towels, a $20 watch, hand lotion,  three new shirts, (which I obviously needed for interviews), and of course my mother’s milk, amongst other things, I start to question what had just happened! I couldn’t understand how speeding almost $200 could feel so good yet so wrong. And that’s how it all first started and now I can’t get enough of it. It is an addition and I am seriously hooked. But I find comfort in the fact that I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE!

In the following months after my first experience with Target I found myself having to go there every other week because I needed this or that. I started to notice that I had a problem, I was addicted to Target, and I was ashamed to tell anyone about it, so I just continue to engorge on what had become by very own brand of heroin in secret. Until one day I couldn’t take it anymore I had to tell someone!!! So while I was shopping for nothing in specific one Friday afternoon I decided to share my secret with my friend who I knew had told me once that she loved the place. So I texted her saying “OMG I think I have a Target addition!!! I’m here all the time for one reason or another!” to what she replayed “HAHAHA I’m at Target right now, I come here on my lunch breaks”, and that’s when I knew I was not alone!

After a while I started to come across all this internet post about how Target is so wonderful but it can empty up your wallet in a matter of 2 hours. I noticed how my Instagran and Facebook friends where posting all this cute and funny stuff and how much I related to it. So I didn’t feel alone anymore, I had people to share my addition with, we are basically passing a blunt around and we are all high on the greatness that is Target. They are blogs, funny pictures online, friends shearing on Facebook talking to each other about how they went in for baby wipes but ended up sitting in their cars double, triple checking the recipe wondering how they just paid $150 dollars, wow those wipes sure came up to be expensive huh.

The truth is we all love Target, we love the feeling of happiness when we walk in but we also love the shame and despair when we walk out. So we go every week, check their website, download the app on our smart phones and subscribe to their mailing list because we NEED to get their weekly ads delivered to our houses or in our email inbox. And knowing we are not alone just makes it easier for us to justify our addition. One of my friends actually suggested the idea of starting a Target anonymous support group, I actually liked the idea but I’m not sure I want to be cured just yet, I don’t think any of us is ready to be cure really.

 

 

 

New Orleans Street Performers

I love my new city!!!!IMG_1614

I love how full of live New Orleans is, how the people are always in a good mood, and how they always smile. It is wonderful to go and take a walk around the French Quarters see the performers and join in the daily celebration of life that this city always has.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Why did it took me 26 years to watch Breakfast at Tiffany’s, let’s put aside the fact that I am actually 26 years old, I’ve actually miss out for way to long!!!
I am not the type of person that watches movies because everyone has seem them or because everyone says the movie is good, I found myself saying have you seen this movie and having people look back at me with a “is that even a real movie” stare more often than you can imagine. So is not surprising that I had never watch Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and not because I wanted to go against the flow and pretend that I am cooler than every other girl out there, but because it simply never caught my eye before.
But a few nights ago while bore at home, browsing through my Netflix (am I the only one that spends more time looking for something to watch on Netflix that actually watching something on Netflix?) I said well let me see this one I got nothing to lose.  And 15 minutes into the movie I was in love!!!!! Seriously why did I waited the so long??

This is one of the best movies if seem, and because of that and because I sometimes like making list for fun here are the reasons why I fell in love with Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

1. Is not a cheesy romantic comedy.

Al thought it has all the elements of a typical romantic comedy is not annoying and it does not makes you want to puke while watching it.
2. Audrey Hepburn was a beautiful lady.

Of course I knew who she was and why she was famous, but this is actually the first and the only movie I’ve ever seen of hers (hate me all you want, its ok), and she is so beautiful in it.

3.  The party scene

Everyone is drunk and having fun in a tiny NY apparent, I can relate to in and it’s fun to see that they had fun the same way we do back then.
4. This scene

  1. I actually undestand why she does not name the cat.

   I know this is explain in the movie, but one thing is to have something explaind to you and an other thing is to actually understan it. And at this point in my life I can understand why the cat and her don’t belong to each other as she says so. She doesn’t want anything that holds her back because she is a wild thing, and I get it.

6. She is a gold digger.

A fancy, very pretty one but at the end of it all a gold digger. Which makes you think, why do passed generations spend their time talking shit about this generation when we are not so different after all.

7. At the end we all belong to someone or to something.

We all going to find our one true love at one point of or lives or and other and we are going to belong to each other. For some people the love of their lives might be an other person, while for others it might be something they feel pasionet about (writing, photography, a carreer, ect). But at the end we all going to find out true love, and that makes me happy.

They are way more reasons why this movie is so good and why I am adding it to my DVD collection, but I can’t just tell you them all you need to go and watch it and pick out your own reasons. What I can tell you is that you wont be disapointed.

My first post!!!!

This is my first blog entry ya’ll!!! And I am really excited about it, all though I don’t expect to have millions of followers or to become the new blog “IT” person, I am excited to have my ideas out there, mostly because at time I have so many of them that my brain gets crowded and it drives me crazy and my not medically diagnose ADD kicks in and my attention span goes all the way to zero, but all so because I’ve realized that I don’t have to keep my ideas and thoughts all to myself!!! And what it is even more wonderful is that they are people out there that think like me, people that can relate to me and I can relate to them, we can share our ideas and opinions and help each other grow. And of course the people that don’t agree with me and can show me a different point of view (blah blah blah).

So to start I am going to tell you guys a little about me, my name is Soranny, and everyone calls me Sory, friends and family call me Sora, if you are not friends or family it creeps me out if you call me Sora so don’t do it J . I have a weird obsession with pretend monkeys, when I say pretend I mean dolls and stuff like that. I am 26 years old but I can read a young adult book in a matter of 3 days, no shame. I did went to college and graduated but I have no profession. I enjoy taking pictures, so you are going to see some of them being posted here. And there is a lot more information but we you guys are going to have to wait until I publish my autobiography to know them.

I will try to write only about positive or neutral subjects, but I cannot promise you I won’t go on a rant at least once, I mean we all need to air something out every once in a while don’t we? I know you might be thinking, why does she wants to write a blog if she only wants to be positive and neutral? Well the reason behind this is I think we, the human race, need a little less negativity. I also think we need to stop thinking in a us vs them way and just find a common ground where we all are the same. Also we need an escape from the formalities of the world we live in. So I would try to stay away from things like politics and religion. Notice though that I said TRY, and not WILL, so if at any moment I post something like that and my point of view offends you I apologies in advance, but I am not sorry if I do, if that makes any sense.

Well all I have left to say is I hope you like what I have to say and I love forward to share with you guys, I also look forward to hearing your opinions and feedback. Let’s have a great time together.
