5 Questions For Tall Girls That Will Always Fall Short

As someone who is 5'11 I have had my share of annoying questions and as I got older I thought it would get better, but no till this day I still deal with them. I decided to make a list of the most common ones I have dealt so hopefully next time you run into a tall person you won't make the mistake of asking them these questions:

Do you play basketball/volleyball?


Tall girls have more to offer the world than just sports, while some of us do play sports, it should not automatically be assumed that we do. We were not gifted with our height solely for entertainment.

How is the weather up there?


I am sure people mean no harm when they ask this question. For the most part they think it's a funny joke, but it begins to become repetitive.

When are you going to stop growing?


The average age for a female to stop growing is around 18 years old, but in all honesty we have no idea when we'll stop growing. If you are like me you've just always been tall and kinda just go with whatever your body does.

Why do you still wear heels?


Tall girls want to look cute just like every other girl and it is annoying when our fashion choices are criticized.

How hard is it finding someone to date?


We already get that the pool of males we can date is limited because of our height, so there is no need to be constantly reminded.

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.

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.
