about the bloggette
Oh hey there. I'm Melissa. 23 years old, recent college graduate. I prefer snowy days to hot ones, but I have nothing against spending a summer day on a boat. I am not high maintenance but I still like being treated like a lady. I have dreams of traveling the world; I'm a huge runner, swimmer, yogi, skier and foodie. It's the simple things in life that please me. PS if I followed you and you're a fitblr, check out my own fitspo at because-skinny.

it bothers me that Kansas and Arkansas are not pronounced the same

I’m from the UK and I have been pronouncing Arkansas as Ar-Kansas my whole life

For all my non-american friends, Arkansas is pronounced ark-an-saw

Jellyfish Lake in Palau. Apparently the jellies have lost their ability to sting because of lack of predators in the lake and you can swim with them!

BUCKET LIST.

WAIT BUT THAT’S NOT EVEN THE COOLEST PART: These jellyfish carry small populations of algae inside their bodies and derive much of their nutrition from the sugars that the algae produce. The jellyfish follow the sun across the lake each day and rotate continuously, so that the algae are always getting maximum sunlight exposure for photosynthesis. Then at night they dive to deeper parts of the lake so the algae can absorb nitrogen. It’s one of the best examples of endosymbiosis in action and it’s KICKASS.
