Pros And Cons Of Being A 6'1 Female
Cally Stanich

This article is an everyday struggle of what a tall girl has to face. It includes the funny truth of how difficult it is sometimes to be tall. But girl, if you are tall, flaunt that sh*t because your height is beautiful and don't ever think it's not. Go tall girls, you got this!

1. Pro: Long legs.

Everyone knows that long legs are sexy. As uncoordinated as they make you, they look good in a nice dress.

2. Con: Twin beds are your worst nightmare.

There is nothing worse than hopping into your warm, cozy bed and having your feet hang off the end. Especially when you walk into your dorm room on the first day, look at your bed and realize that you may have a few mild cases of hypothermia.

3. Pro: You always make it in group photos.

Ever felt like your face was the one to get cut off in every group photo? Can't relate! When you're tall, you're always towering above your friends, which ensures the fact that, when the photo inevitably goes on Facebook, your beaming grin will be easily seen. Heels not needed.

4. Con: "Do you play basketball?"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F02%2F636163147960305590-385684897_ms-IiNixY.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=862&h=27d13cd0afcaf13751649c5ccda5617850728b740b19cfd82d637131146131fd&size=980x&c=2104448947 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F02%252F636163147960305590-385684897_ms-IiNixY.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D862%26h%3D27d13cd0afcaf13751649c5ccda5617850728b740b19cfd82d637131146131fd%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2104448947%22%7D" expand=1]

Every. F*cking. Time. Someone sees how tall I am, and the first question that pops out of their mouth is whether or not I play basketball. Then it is followed by how I've wasted my height when I say, "No." Just because I'm tall does not mean that I'm coordinated enough to dunk. Leave me alone.

5. Pro: If you're heavier, it's not as noticeable.

Freshman 15? No problem for a tall girl. A big frame can easily hide the fact you've eaten your body weight in ramen noodles this past semester. Weight on taller girls evens out better throughout your body. It almost makes up for the fact that my jeans are too short.

6. Con: You can never find cute shoes in your size.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F03%2F6361632057103632401898110637_ms-h6eCVR.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=672&h=750d406d3170139a6320e5da3d8b58139312be65018fb9e6d36c3fa3efca5315&size=980x&c=134423246 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F03%252F6361632057103632401898110637_ms-h6eCVR.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D672%26h%3D750d406d3170139a6320e5da3d8b58139312be65018fb9e6d36c3fa3efca5315%26size%3D980x%26c%3D134423246%22%7D" expand=1]

When you get into the double digits of shoes, they go from cute pumps to your grandmother's loafers. Sure, they have great arch support, but I wasn't going for the "middle-aged-dad-at-a-barbecue" look.

7. Pro: You walk faster than your short friends.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F02%2F6361631965263165881225494780_ms-5ON9qp.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=204&h=7101fafadd0a2a08ef4a0a904363600acac6f475d03778017851b880270d1a66&size=980x&c=1685453297 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F02%252F6361631965263165881225494780_ms-5ON9qp.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D204%26h%3D7101fafadd0a2a08ef4a0a904363600acac6f475d03778017851b880270d1a66%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1685453297%22%7D" expand=1]

For every short friend, it takes them an average of three steps to make up for my one stride. I'll often hear the familiar cries of, "please slow down," or, "stop walking so fast." It usual ends in a piggy back ride and a happy 5'5".

8. Con: Clothing is too short.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F07%2F636166673037694057-723979129_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=107&h=c15ed322cd2b05e5fe62fa3843a8552186ee52d05899f872d118df9507f80239&size=980x&c=1823892563 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F07%252F636166673037694057-723979129_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D107%26h%3Dc15ed322cd2b05e5fe62fa3843a8552186ee52d05899f872d118df9507f80239%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1823892563%22%7D" expand=1]

You can feel it now. The air changes when you slip your leg into the pant hole and pray to the denim gods that there will be no ankle showage today. This is usually followed by a silent whimper when it passes the no fly zone. Then the walk of shame back to the target counter where the return lady knows you by first name and jean size.

9. Pros: You can intimidate people with your height.

I never worry when walking down the street at night. People don't usually go for the tall and meaty. They usually pray on the short and weak. It's pretty hard to drag tall people into a van...

10) Con: Boys that are shorter than you.

Los Angeles happens to be one of the greatest food cities in the United States, so it's only right that I present you guys with this list. These are the best places (that I have tried) in Los Angeles to eat or drink.

It goes without saying what July 4th symbolizes for Americans and undoubtedly its more important holiday. From parades to foods to speeches, all Americans know that it relates to the day when the 13 original colonies broke free of England, then ruled by King George III. A sometimes-overlooked aspect of Independence Day is bonding with family and friends. That is, after all, where my favorite memories were.
