10 Questions Tall Girls Are Tired Of Hearing

As a child, I was always one of the taller girls in my school. I was given comments about my height from all of my friends and peers, along with questions that I was asked on a regular basis. Here is what not to ask tall people, especially girls.

1. "Why are you so tall?"

Um, I don't know. Genes? Maybe it's my secret superpowers. Who knows.

2. "How tall are you?"

I absolutely hate, hate, hate this question. I get it on a day to day basis when I meet someone new or stand next to someone more than five inches shorter than me. I'm 5"9', which in reality is not that tall.

3. "Could you reach this for me?"

Ah, probably the most asked question I get. Most of the time I'll just roll my eyes and do it, but sometimes I just walk away. Whether it be a fab switch, flour from the kitchen cabinets, or towels from the bathroom closet, this particular question gets on my nerves. Ladders were invented for a reason people!

4. "Did you ever play basketball?"

Yeah I did play basketball as a kid, and I was damn good at being the center position as well, along with the other sports I played. Just call me the MVP.

5. "How's the weather up there?"

HAHAHAHA. You're so funny! No. Just no.

6. "Do you have to specially order your jeans online?"

"No." *yes*.

7. "Are you going to wear heels?"

Yes, I am, and I'll be working it. I wore heels to every homecoming, prom, and formal I've been to. Just because I am taller than 5'6" does not mean I cannot wear what other girls can. If Kendall Jenner can wear heels with her height, than why can't I?

8. "Is it hard finding a guy that is taller than you?"

Of course not. You just have to get friendly and flirty with the basketball team. It's not as hard as it looks.

9. "Can I hide behind you so ____ can't see me?"

You would be surprised how many times people have asked me this. "Oh, you're tall! Can I just stand behind you so my ex can't see me?" No.

10. "Do you ever wish you were shorter?"

I love being tall and the perks that come with it. I may complain once and a while about feeling like a skyscraper next to most of my friends, but I enjoy my height.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
