15 Things Girls With Long Hair Deal WIth

15 Things Girls With Long Hair Deal WIth

because sometimes the struggle is real with long hair

I’ve had long hair my entire life (except that one time in the fourth grade I chopped it all off and instantly regretted it). I absolutely love having long hair, but it definitely comes with some struggles. Here is just a handful of the daily struggle that comes along with having long hair.

1. Wind destroying your hair

This is long hairs worst enemy. I don’t know what kind of reality models live in with their long hair blowing beautifully in the wind, but my hair in the wind looks like I got attacked by a bird trying to build a nest on my head.

2. Hair ties constantly breaking

When you want a hair tie seventy-five percent of the time you don’t have it, and when you do have it, it ends up breaking while you attempt to pull up your hair.

3. Buns are impossible

Not only will the hair tie most likely break (see #2), your bun will look like some kind weird mess a top your head.

4. Hair getting on everything

I’ve had boyfriends tell me they’ve found my hair on a couch at their parents house which I hadn’t been to in like over a month.

5. Brushing your hair is a process

Getting all the knots out of your hair is a struggle, plus if you were in the wind then you are going to have a real good time (and by real good time I mean nearly crying trying to get a comb through your hair).

6. Helmets, and hats are also long hairs enemy

Those commercials where the girls take off a motorcycle helmet and their hair looks flawless must come from the same planet as the models with their hair blowing beautifully in the wind.

7. Doing any kind of hairstyle takes forever.

Curling my hair usually results in it falling flat before I even finish the second half of my head.

8. Shower drains clogging

My shower drain back at home does not stand a chance (considering my twin and I both have really long hair it inevitable gets clogged every six months or so).

9. Panicking at the amount of hair that falls off your head

I ran my hands through my hair the other day and ended up with a palm full of hair (after a solid five minutes of panicking I decided its just long hair problems).

10. Butt crack hairs

This may be a little to much information for some of you but seriously the amount of hair I find in my butt crack while showering is not okay.

11. Having your hair get stuck in lipstick

Fresh lipstick will inevitably be ruined by your hair getting stuck in it.

12. Getting Whipped by your Ponytail

Running with a ponytail will whip you in the face and you can’t put into a bun so you are kind of just stuck.

13. Hair getting stuck in your jacket zipper

Every time you zip your jacket you will rip out half your hair guaranteed.

14. Rolling your hair up in the window

This needs no more explanation.

15. When people ask why you don’t just cut your hair if it’s so troublesome

Because my hair is beautiful, and I’d look like a fool with short hair (no shade against people with short hair, but I look terrible with short hair). If I could pull of short hair I totally would.

7 Ways You Know You Come From A Family Of "Foodies"

My family is food-centric, and that brings us together.

Growing up, it has always been rather apparent that my family lives a rather food-centric lifestyle. There are certainly no complaints here--from a rather early age I acquired an appreciation for food and I've gotten to eat in a number of incredible restaurants.

My family definitely wears the title of "foodies" proudly, although my dad certainly champions this concept. Whenever friends and family are taking a trip to somewhere we've been, my dad's the go-to guy for recommendations. I've taken on this role slightly as well by giving recommendations to non-local friends in the Philadelphia area.

Growing up in a family of foodies comes with a unique appreciation for food as not only sustenance but as a way of bringing people together. So, here are some of the characteristics that make foody families so unique:

1. Vacations aren't planned around the sights you see, but rather the restaurants you eat in.

Anytime anyone asks me where to eat, I'm flattered. Apparently, my reputation precedes me. Not only am I well-versed in Yelp when I don't know an area, but when I do know the area I always have favorites. When I am asked for recommendations, however, I have a tendency to go a little overboard and send far more than the circumstance warrants.

4. Your camera roll is filled with food pictures.

Birthdays. College acceptances. Reuniting with old friends. No matter the occasion, the best way to celebrate is with good food.

6. Meals are a form of stress-relief.

This picture was taken the day I finally decided where to go to college--a decision that had bee plaguing me for months. Nothing helped cure the stress of that decision better than a good meal.

7. Food brings your family together.

With crazy schedules to coordinate, meals are one of the times my family gets to get together and catch up on everything. Growing up, we always had family dinners almost every night (when schedules allowed), and we've continued this into college as often as we are able. Having a family who values food, we see it as a time to connect with one another.
