Things have been so hectic since we got to Miami (but in a really great, amazing way). Honestly we have been surrounded by nothing but love. Paloma has spent time with Charlie’s side of the family and as always she’s a big ball of sunshine :) Today we had brunch with my forever friend Jessi and again Paloma was all smiles. 

However, running into people from high school is getting REALLY OLD! I mean honestly I live in Miami, which houses about what, a million people? Why am I seeing people I legit can’t stand at a restaurant on the other side of town? Go away. It was hilarious though because PJ was staring the girl down hardcore until she paid attention to her. I was dying. 

The hardest part of being here is dividing our time but I think we’ve been finding a nice balance. Tomorrow we are set to see Charlies aunt Marina and then I’m getting my hair done. I have to go shopping at Big Lots at some point tomorrow too.

im fucking pissed off. my sister had one job today. ONE DAMN JOB. have dinner done by six. It’s 5:40pm and the food isn’t even CLOSE to being cooked. like…the oven isn’t even turned on. We have to leave for the airport at ten. Paloma needs to eat food by 6pm so she can go to bed on time. And is there food? Nope. No fucking food.

Here are some wonderful facts about Sea World’s orcas!
The average lifespan of wild orcas ranges from 30-50 years, although some females can easily make it past 80 (a wild orca named J2 or ‘Granny’ is 103 this year!). The lifespan of a Sea World orca is around 25 years, the median age being 9. But at least they put on a good show!
Don’t worry, collapsed dorsal fins are a common condition, although in the wild only sick or injured orcas have collapsed dorsal fins. All of Sea World’s males and some females have it, it makes them look unique! 
The size of Sea World’s tanks compared to an orca is about the same as a human to a bathtub. Lot’s of room to stretch and move!
Wild orcas swim 100+ miles a day, they would have to swim around their tank 1,400+ times a day to achieve that. But that seems like a lot of work, and you may see the animals hanging out near the surface of the water or on the bottoms of their tanks for hours. That’s a lot more relaxing than swimming all those miles!
Sea World gives their orcas a Valium-like drug to stop the whales from acting aggressively towards each other and to numb their minds from their vastly uninteresting concrete tanks. Buying a ticket to Sea World is an excellent way to help them pay for these drugs that they pump their animals full with!
Many captive orcas show abnormal behaviors like head bobbing, chewing on concrete, and self mutilation by banging their heads into the side of the tank. Obviously just temper-tantrums! Silly things.
In the wild, there has been only one orca attack. Bad orca! While in captivity, there have been over 100 attacks and 4 deaths. These animals just need more training, it couldn’t possibly be related to their confinement! 
Food is used as reinforcement for tricks. Do a trick, get your dinner. Don’t want to do a trick? I guess you don’t eat tonight you stubborn thing! 
See? Sea World isn’t as bad as people make it out to be! Oh, one more fact: for every $1,000,000 Sea World makes, about $600 goes into conservation efforts (about $0.5 a ticket). I’m so glad they care about conservation of the ocean! Amazing work!

If you haven’t realized it yet, this post is 100% sarcastic. It should be obvious, but not everyone understands sarcasm…
