they want you to become less callow, less shallow

I made two new icons! These two photos were taken during the Shamu Dream show (which was fabulous by the way). The first icon is of the little one (Baby Shamu I guess, I wonder if they have private names). The second icon is of the baby's mother (the baby was sticking close by to her after the show and it was a her, you can tell). These icons are so ridiculously easy to create especially the mama one but I love them anyway, so simple. The baby one was a little harder because I had to find the a good color so it wouldn't wash out or look garish. These are actually up for grabs and since I did take the photos I would prefer a shout-out in my direction. Of course that means somebody would have to take them and they aren't that good! :P



The orca has been my favorite sea animal since I was a teeny tiny girl! I don't even remember a time I didn't love them to the point of being over emotional over seeing one!




Do you think it's a little busy? Originally it was just 'dancing through life' but then I remembered the other line. I would love an animated one like that but I can't do it. I really like it, I just think it being animated would make it look less cluttered. :P


This one was so simple to create but I love it to pieces!

Heh, consider this kinda a preview post for the photos I'll upload later!

Thank you! You know, I thought so! It's kinda silly to call them all Shamu and Baby Shamu..even Shamu I and Baby Shamu I and so on! I pet an orca once, it was of the best moments (and the most emotional) of my life :D

For me as well, I did a Trainer For a Day program at Seaworld, and I gave an orca a hug...it was one of the best moments of my life. And part of the reason I want to work with them one day so much.

I wanted to work with animals my whole life, never really stopped. Orcas and big cats were my major passion. What classes do you have to take? Maybe I shouldn't give up on that dream to work with them :)

You could go to Moorpark and go through their EATM (Exotic Animal Training and Management) Program, which is 2 years, and that gives you the education AND hands on training to work with exotics...of course if you ever DID get a job at Sea World, they start you lower in the animals (like penguins or something) and you have to work your way up to the orcas...but also Sea World might be one of the places you need to go to a 4 year college and major in animal sciences or psychology...
I plan to go through EATM in a few years. I need to save up since you won't have any time to work during the course...it's like 5am to 9pm...:P

Or you could work with animals being an animal cop, like I will be doing in a few months...:)

Penguins rule, I'd love to care for them (plus they have cold habitats and I can spend hours in the Penguin Encounter if my family let me..hah I know it's colder behind the glass XD)

I like them too, but as far as a trainer goes, you don't interact with them as much as with the cetaceans and pinnipeds...so I wouldn't have the best time, BUT I would be glad to know I could move up on the ladder...:)

One of the best moments :D
I've also been whale watching in Northern Washington (Orcas Island to be exact!)

Shamu is a stage names...they refer to any of the adults as Shamu at any time...The original Baby Shamu was a baby when I was about 8, so I would assume she grew up and now Baby Shamu is a stage name...
Those are cute icons though. I like my Keiko one better, teehee...;)
I lovest orcas too, I always wanted to work with them...if I could swim better I would even go for it...elephants are my second choice though...:)

Yah, I kinda figured they were stage names. How confusing that would be for the animals! I can swim to stay afloat, that's it. Maybe I'll just take a crapload of zoology, animal anatomy\behaviour, etc classes and go and study orcas.
I loved Keiko =\

It's not that confusing to the animals, since they use hand signals and whistles...it doesn't matter what they call them, since they go over the routine so much each whale knows when and what to do...
You need to be able to swim the length of the pool in a certain amount of time, hold your breath for a certain amount of time, get your SCUBA certification, AND have years of animal handling experience...I know I have a good amount of experience and when I am an animal cop I will get more, but I'm not sure I want to train to swim like that...I am not a fan of holding my breath so it's really just a pipe dream...that's why elephants are a more realistic animal to want to work with...
I loved my Keiko too...I got to see him all the time when he lived in Oregon...I got a pass to the aquarium for my bday and I took the bus there every weekend...(I couldn't drive yet, haha). I yell at Dan and say his country killed my whale!!! :)
