You don't have to remind us how short we really are.

10 Struggles Every Short Girl Can Relate To

As short girls, there's a few struggles that you can pretty much count on. Hopefully you get a laugh out of these too well known problems.

1. We've perfected the art of reaching high shelves.

We can pretty much climb any piece of furniture to reach the unreachable. Also, thinking you can hide things from us is very wrong.

2. Pants are always way too long.

Learn to roll them up or be stuck with them dragging on the ground forever.

3. We tend to check the height requirements on amusement park rides.

It's mainly out of habit. We just want to make sure we can actually ride the roller coaster.

4. Your view is blocked no matter who sits in front of you.

It's fairly difficult to watch a movie with a silhouette of a head in the way. There are no "good seats" when you're short.

5. We really struggle to get our clothes out of the washer or dryer.

Cue a stool or a ladder please.

6. "You should do gymnastics!"

The height may be in my favor, but I could never find the skills. And yes, some of even us play sports like basketball too!

7. Finding yourself in over your head far too quickly in swimming pools.

"Maybe if you stand on your tip toes." "I already am..."

8. High heels are highly recommended if not necessary.

However, some of us have entirely given up on high heels or ever reaching the highest heights. It's not as easy as it looks!

9. We have to take twice as many steps as everyone else.

If not three times as many.

10. Team Front Row in Every Photo

We've perfected all the front row poses, and when we hear "photo" we automatically go to the front.

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.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
