There are many disadvantages to being a short girl. Sometimes you can't reach the top shelf, and your pants always seem to be too long. However, being a short girl doesn't come without benefits. Here are Thirteen reasons why being a short girl rocks.

1. You always have enough leg room.

You can basically sit behind anyone in the car, and tall people will love you for this. Also, you won’t feel cramped on buses and planes.

2. It makes you look younger.

Sure, this might be a little irritating when you can be mistaken for almost half your age at 20, but you’ll love it when you’ve broken 40 and you’re still getting carded.

3. Guys will always be taller than you.

No need to worry how tall your date is because even the shortest guys are taller than you. Plus, this makes you the perfect size for snuggling.

4. You can wear any heels that you want.

Speaking of dates, no need to worry about making yourself taller than your guy. Also, you’ll never look like a giraffe on stilts. Even if you’re wearing 4-inch heels, you’re probably still shorter than the average person.

5. You’ve become an expert at climbing shelves and reaching high things.

Being short has allowed you to master the art of getting things above your head. It’s kind of your superpower.

6. You’re going to live longer.

Many studies suggest that shorter people tend to live longer for a multitude of reasons. Short women are less likely to suffer from ovarian, colon, and other types of cancer.

7. You’re great at limbo.

Your height allows you to excel at many games and activities. You are the hide-and-seek master.

8. Showers are never too short for you.

You’ll never have to deal with bending over in a short shower, especially like the ones in hotels, when trying to wash your hair.

9. Less leg = less leg to shave

It’s simple math. If you have less leg, then there’s less to shave, which equals less time spent shaving. Plus, you’re so short that it’s harder for people to notice if you skip a day.

10. Nobody can see up your nose.

Sure, you’ll spend a lifetime looking up everyone else’s noses, but no one will ever know if you’ve got a bat in the cave or some gross nose hairs. Your nose will always appear well-kept.

11. Blankets and beds are never too short for you.

You can swaddle yourself in a blanket, and still have some left over. Your feet will never stick out of a blanket or fall off a short bed. You can even comfortably sleep on couches.

12. You’ll never be asked to lift things.

Even if you’ve got killer upper-body strength, nobody is going to ask you to lift things. It’s cool because you probably don’t want to carry heavy things anyway.

13. Your height opens doors in fashion.

You don’t have to worry about your skirts being too short. Plus, you can wear shirts and long skirts as dresses. Some short girls can even shop in the kid’s section, which not only expands their options, but also saves tons of dough.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
