13 Struggles Tall Girls Just Can't Escape
The Huffington Post

Because sometimes, being tall is the struggle. A blessing and curse all at the same time, here are 13 tall girl problems:

1. Bathroom stalls can be awkward.

That awkward moment when you casually walk into a bathroom stall that stops at shoulder height. Not only can you see over every stall around you, but everyone else notices it too.

2. You're automatically an athlete.

"You play basketball don't you??" The answer is no

3. Small spaces aren't easy.

Two door car? Don't you dare try to squeeze me in the back. I'm in there looking like ^

4. One size fits all? Not a thing.

Having to decide if clothes were designed to be dresses or shirts, and every pair of jeans leaves you flooding. Having hope that clothes will actually fit, meanwhile you walk out of the dressing room like...

5. Hugs are weird.

Yes, I know your face goes directly into my chest, no I cannot help it.

6. You stick out like a sore thumb.

Being tall means getting noticed whether you want to or not. As soon as you walk in a room your height grabs everyone's attention

7. Spots that are relaxing for normal people are impossible for us.

Bubble baths? Legs too long for the tub. Want to casually lay on a bed? Legs hang off. Your whole body is cold? Better get an extra long blanket.

8. All of the super original jokes.

"How's the weather up there?"

"What did your mother feed you as a child?"

9. Your really short friends make you look even taller.

I'm not really tall, you're just really short...

10. People at concerts HATE YOU.

To the people who are forced to stand behind me at concerts....sorry, not sorry.

11. You save the day for short people.

whether it's the top shelf at the grocery store or something that would normally require a ladder, tall people will always come in clutch for those hard to reach items.

12. Dealing with door frames, low cars, ceiling fans, etc.

Having to duck when walking into certain rooms...take caution.

13. Finding tall guys is a tall order.

Because most the time we end up looking like this.

To all the tall people who go through the daily struggle, I'm rooting for you.

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.

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
