22 Struggles Only Tall Girls Will Understand

It's hard to be a tall girl in a not-so-tall world.

22 Struggles Only Tall Girls Will Understand

You were blessed and cursed at the same time ever since you hit puberty. You grew up like one of the guys, growing all of the time. The next thing you knew, you had out-grown all of your friends and now here you are, even taller. Here are the top 22 struggles only tall girls will understand.

1. People always say, “you’re really tall!"

Do you really think I didn't know that?

2. All of your friends are short.

At least most (if not all) of them are.

3. You have a bad habit of crouching in pictures.

I mean you don't wanna get cropped out, right?

4. Once you make a tall friend, you’re obsessed.

5. Every boy you meet is either just as tall as you, or worse, shorter.

6. You can't wear heels or wedges.

Or else people will get a kink in their neck looking up to you.

7. You have to buy “long” jeans.

Because if you don’t, every other pair will look like high waters.

8. People ask you if you play volleyball or basketball.

Why just those two sports?

9. You’re always being asked to reach for something.

"Hey can you get this down for me? You're tall, and I'm not."

10. Just like your legs, all of your other limbs are just as lengthy.

You could never pass the “no shorts above your fingertips” rule in elementary school without wearing bermuda shorts.

11. The sleeves of your sweaters and long sleeve shirts are always a little too short.

So you constantly roll them up to make it look like you've got your life together.

12. You hate that you do it, but you slouch.

Because even when sitting down, you're still taller than most of your friends.

13. You have big feet.

When you find your shoe size, it's a miracle.

14. Every time theres a group picture, you're always in the back row.

Because you're friends don't want to look "too short."

15. You can never win with a maxi skirt.

You try on the cutest ones hoping they'll fit, and they still don't touch the floor.

16. Always trying to find the perfect romper.

Once you find the one, you can't contain your excitement.

17. Never having enough leg room in the car.

"Can you move your seat up just a little bit?"

18. People always ask you how tall you are.

People you don't even know!

19. You hate the term “one size fits all."

It doesn't apply to you, no matter what it is.

20. Giving hugs is always so awkward.

There's always that awkward bend you always seem to mess up.

21. It bothers you when you walk behind someone so slow.

Only because you walk so fast, of course.

22. Out of all these ridiculous reasons, you wouldn’t trade your height with anyone else.

Because you wouldn't be yourself if you were any shorter.

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.

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.
