10 Struggles Funsized People Know All Too Well

I'm not short. I'm funsized

10 Struggles Funsized People Know All Too Well
Lovelace Media

I'm the shortest person in my family standing at 5 feet 3 inches. My dad is 6'1, my mom is 5'7, and my younger siblings are both 5'9 (my brother is still growing so that might change sometime in the near future). People comment on my height as being "so cute" and I can't help but think "that makes one of us". Sometimes I don't really notice how short I really am until I'm standing next to my siblings when I go home during a break. For all my vertically challenged people, I know this article will capture what you've been wanting to say to people.

1. People who feel the need to remind you of your shortness.

Yeah I know. I don't go around pointing out your tallness so please refrain from pointing out my shortness.

2. The car sun visor doesn't do anything for you.

Even with the help of transition lenses, it's still a pain in the butt driving on a sunny day. I have given up on even putting down my sun visor because it doesn't do me any good.

3. Being a human armrest

I am NOT your armrest.

4. Having to sprint to keep up with people

5. Gaining a few extra pounds and people can tell immediately.

6. Your feet dangle off of almost every chair you sit on.

7. Struggling to get the last few clothes from the washer.

I always pray that nobody walks by when I'm practically in the washer machine getting the last of my clothes.

8. Getting creative while reaching for something on the top shelf in a store.

9. Finding a cute maxi dress but you can't buy it.

10. Getting excited when you see someone shorter than you

11. Despite anything, you wouldn't trade your height for anything

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
