The Annoyance Of Being Extremely Tall

The Struggle Of Being A 6 Foot Tall Giant

Now for those of you who are vertically challenged, you may be thinking, "There isn't any struggle of being very tall at all, you can reach the top shelf and everything!" Let me tell you that it's not all that it's cracked up to be.

First of all, finding clothes that fit you is a huge pain because if you're as skinny, as I am, they're either too baggy or big or too long or too short to actually fit correctly at all. Because of this, I am now forced to special order jeans that have the correct length and width to be able to fit me comfortably.

The other downside to being a relative giant is that most people tend to use my height for their own selfish benefit. First of all, how dare they?! Second of all, really?! Using my height just so you don't have to make the extra effort to get a small ladder or something to reach the top shelf of your kitchen?! I mean, have some respect, good God!

Also, beds are never made so that you can fit your entire body comfortably onto it and actually stretch out. I am forced to contort my body into a ball just so my entire body fits on my bed. You have got to be kidding me!! You can't make even one bed that is adequate for a 6'4" human being! I am so disappointed in you, mattress companies! The fact that I am forced to contort my body to be able to fit onto my bed is honestly an outrage.

Now going along with the annoyingly small beds are all of the back cramps. They are so annoying and they don't ever seem to go away no matter what I do to relieve them. For once, just once, it would be nice to wake up in the morning and not have to crack every single bone in my back just so that I am able to go about my day and not be hugely uncomfortable. But no. That is a necessity that I have to deal with and it is entirely uncalled for.

Now, seeing as I am hugely tall, you would think that I would have a large vehicle. You would also be incorrect with that statement. But as to why they can't make small cars where my head is not bumping the top of the car is beyond me.

For once. Just once. I would like to be able to get into a small vehicle and not smash my head on the ceiling of the car. It's kinda frustrating, and I'm so over it.

Oh, the last thing, please, car companies, I am begging you: make smaller cars that I don't have to contort my body just so that I can get in the car. Make small cars that it is actually possible for me to not break my back just to get in to drive to the store for my dinner or to go tho the movies with my friend's it's extremely rude to us tall people and extremely frustrating as we can't have any car we want we are limited if we want to be comfortable to giant SUVs to drive.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
