Perks Of Being Short

People used to laugh at me, make jokes about my height, and bully me because of how short I was and to this day, still am. I am 4 feet 11 inches and I have been this height for about 4 years now. I used to hate it because of the bullying at a VERY young age. Now? I adore my height. When someone asks me what my favorite thing about myself is, I say my height. It makes me unique and there are SO many perks!


1. People’s bodies are smushed in your face, but it’s also WAAAAY easier to squeeze through crowds and get front row at concerts when you’re tiny, so, worth it.

2. Because of my height, people always assume I’m super innocent, so I can basically get away with anything. *cue evil laugh*

3. Also, I’ll always look younger than I am. That may be annoying now, but it won’t be when I’m 45

4. I can sleep anywhere on any couch and be comfortable because I’ll always fit.

5. Tall dudes automatically love me because I am liftable. We make a pretty adorable couple.

6. Oh, and if I ever want to be taller... All I need to do is put on a pair of good heels. Strut Strut Strut.

This movement has recently gained a lot of momentum on their Facebook page and is currently even gaining support from tourists in Iran. Ms. Alinejad shares photos of men in hijabs and women inside Iran who have taken part in a moment of 'stealthy freedom' by removing their hijabs to the outside world.

National Coffee Day falls on September 29, a fact that I don't think I'll ever forget, even though I didn't even know it was a "holiday" until just recently. Maybe that's because my love for coffee is still a recent development, or maybe I just don't keep up enough with the times, but either way, I can't think of any better time to recount why we all probably love it so much.
