12 Truths Of A Short Girl
Buzzfeed

Height is just a number, but when you're standing up at five foot...people notice. They see how bean like you are, especially for us short chubby gals. Some find it cute, some find it amusing to taunt. Inanimate objects however, they're the worse! Always out of your reach, they make you work for them. Along with not being able to reach anything and having your length define you, we have the everyday physical obstacles such as, climbing counters, stumbling over long pants and walking slower than the rest of human kind. Of course there are perks of being fun size, everyone thinks you are cute! You can sleep however you'd like because you're legs always fit on the bed and no blanket will ever be too short.


1. Top shelves


A place only heard of in stories, the top shelf. Us short girls have to make a great climb to find it. Only few have lived to tell about it, it is far beyond our reach.

2. Pants

WHAT THE HELL?! On average it takes me three weeks and over five stores to find a pair of jeans that fit my body type and don't add an extra pound of material bunched up around my ankles.

3. Being called cute

and don't you forget it! I'm small and round and cute and you will never meet anyone like me, besides Pooh Bear.

4. Never seeing Tops

This can be very annoying but I also never clean the top of things and no one expects me too, I can barely reach the top shelf of the fridge so I will not be dusting much more than that.

5. Driving


If I can reach the peddle I can't see the front of my car, If I can sit up straight I can't reach the peddle. NOTHING WILL WORK!

6. Walking slow

Throw in some chub rub and I am practically crawling! We try to play it cool for some time but let's be honest, everyone else is running.

7. Being leaned on

Well you are the perfect height to be ladder but you don't see me stepping all over you, do you?

8. Reaching someone face

You know when you hug someone and you simply face plant eiher the middle of their back or the middle of their chest? I love that....

9. Standing out

DOES EVERYONE REMEMBER PROM PHOTOS?!

10. Looking up

I sleep in a neck brace with an icy hot and an Ibuprofen on my side table. The strain is bad, they say it is terminal.

You know when you say "I can't, Im too short", "Just so you know I'm really short" or even "I'm 5 foot" and then people are surprised by your height. I JUST TOLD YOU I'M SHORT!

12. feet hanging

Career as a Defense Lawyer

Lawyers are supposed to be unbiased. Lawyers are trained to look at both sides of an issue and give equal weight to each side. It is meant to be their mantra, "My client is innocent until proven guilty." But if you're thinking about becoming a defense attorney, it's not this pretty simple. Defense lawyers argue that their clients are innocent because they don't want their actions to seem suspect in any way. They essentially say for the sake of the argument itself.
