It has nothing to do with the captivity debate. It’s personal, I’m feeling way too bad :/
And back again
I’ll go ahead and say a lot of pro caps on this site are lovely people just the same as anti caps when it comes to personality.
That being said, I still will always verbally condemn your choices to visit marine parks.
Your money is the reason that all these problems with captivity are still…
18 - My 1st grade teacher is such a lovely person that she can’t get mad at anyone for a long time. I had this trick and everytime she was about to get mad with us I’d raise my hand and ask: “Teacher, is [insert any cartoon characters here] gay?”, she’d start laughing and the peace was back.
19 - “The drawing contest”. A fast food restaurant started a drawing contest for my school.
*Note 1: I always wanted to be good at drawing, but it never happened. When I was 8 everybody would laugh at the Pokemons I used to draw. It really pissed me off, so I started to improve. At one point I’d make boys envy with my Dragon Ball characters. The drawing contest was around this time.
We were supposed to draw something about “protecting the enviroment”. Mine was someone people united cleaning a forest full of trash. It wasn’t good, I was never going to make to the finals.
I got sick, a bad throat infection, after spending almost 2 weeks without going school, a girl starts to yell at me.
*Note 2: The girl was kinda weird and insane. She was always trying to be friends with me because we shared the same name or something.
“YOU WENT TO THE FINALS! THE DRAWING CONTEST, REMEMBER? CONGRATULATIONS!”
I just gave her the look and said “Oh, cool”, no way it was true.
After lunch I went to my mother to an esoterical store (this part is important so guys can have a mental image of me at age of 10) and I bought 2 rings.
*Note 3: I was 10. Short. With curly hair dyed of blue and purple. I used to wear big panties and big shirts, I wore these 2 rings: a pink ring with marijuana leaves and glass ring that changed colors in the sun. My shoes were big and blue (my mother said they looked like astronaut boots). I was almost a hippie dude.
So I was all happy and excited with the marijuana ring when the phone rings. It was from school, telling my mother I was in the finals and we were supposed to go the damn restaurant that night.
I started crying and saying I wouldn’t go because the contest would be a fraud, “that bitch and her daughter would win anyways.”
*Note 4: “The bitch and her daughter”. A teacher that like using violence against students and her spoiled little bitch. My nemesis.
So we went. For my luck, 2 classmates were there (one was also my enemy, but when it was about the little spoiled bitch, everyone was team). We were playing on the Playground when little bitch showed up with her team. Yes, we started a war. I remember I almost drowned her in the plastic balls pool. I only stopped because they were going to start the voting.
Guess what? Bitch momma bribed almost every teacher to vote for her daughter. And this folks, was the only time I made to the finals of a contest.
20 - I don’t think I have any funny stories from High School. But there was a girl that accidentally showed her boobies to the Math teacher when trying to remove her hoodie. He was like “what the hell are you doing, girl? This is teacher abuse”. And there was this day the same girl looked at the air conditioner and said “I hope this shit breaks so I don’t have to be cold anymore”. In the same second it stopped working. Everyone was afraid of pissing her off after this.
2 - I was 13 and it was with a dear friend of mine. We went to the movies to watch “Bewitched” and it happened. We had a lot of ups and downs but we’re still friends after all these years.
3 - Here we go. When I was in 1st grade I met this boy from 2nd grade. He was annoying as hell. We spent the next 4 years calling each other names, insulting, fighting… Until 5th grade. Hormones + our mutual obsession for Yugioh made me fall in love for him. He was in love with me too. Remember when I say I’m an introvert with fear of rejection? So is he. I had to change school next year, I’d scape to go to my old school to see him. Unfortunatelly, in 2005 my depression started to attack and I told myself I’d give up on him. We just met again last year, he’s still the same cute guy and we’re still the same weirdos that can’t simply tell each other how we feel.
5 - 2006. My 14th birthday. I had a party, I had a lot of gifts, I went to one of the most expensive restaurants… It was the last time I actually had a good birthday :/
11 - I can’t remember right now, but I loved the one I was going whale watching. But you know how dreams are, when you’re getting in there… You wake up.
12 - I have so many nightmares every week that is hard to pick one. But once I had a dream where someone I really care about had died, it was so real, I woke up really scared.
Today has proven that yes, SeaWorld are indeed still taking part in wild-capture of Orcas. Their greed means that poor Morgan is now doomed to spend her life - which she once spent swimming free with her family - performing mind numbing tricks for an ignorant audience to blaring, obnoxious music,…
Morgan’s loss is Loro Parque’s gain. Sadly, the Dutch High Courts DENIED Morgan her freedom, once again. This is unfair to her. A beautiful young orca, whose life was never suppose to be subjected to being imprisoned. Prisoned amongst other orcas, who constantly bang her, rake their teeth on her flesh, and where a sexual mature male constantly sexually harrasses her. She’s not ready to breed, yet she will be and probably soon. Her bloodline is fresh…for now.
All the work that Dr. Ingrid Visser, and countless others, went into to help her, gone. All we can do is support her and the others, as well as Morgan as best as we can. Because at least they fought for her, they tried so hard. We can just say Thank-you, and that our hearts break along with theirs and Morgan’s.
