12 Struggles Every Short Girl Can Relate To

If you’re under 5’4'' you know all about these struggles. We have only our parents/gene pool to blame for this.

1. Not knowing what it's like to feel the ground when sitting.

I can't help but do the dangling foot dance.

2. A step stool should be carried as a purse.

At least 7 times a day we wish we had a step stool on hand.

3. When you wear heels and you're STILL the shortest.

We feel good about ourselves until we stand next to the normal people.

4. The most common way people describe you is as “the short one."

I would like to be called my name, thank you.

5. No pant length will ever fit, ever.

Your tailor knows you on a personal level.

6. People always think you are years younger than you actually are.

Maybe when I'm 40 years old i'll appreciate this.

7. Finding a petite section in a store is like finding gold.

8. You'd rather risk your life than ask a stranger for help in the grocery store.

You don't want to sacrifice your dignity and ask for help.

9. Ending up face down a** up while getting that last sock on the bottom of the washer machine.

Putting stuff in the washer in a no brainer but getting them out.....

10. People will ask exactly how short you are.

Because knowing the exact measurement is apparently necessary.

11. Losing your friends at a party and trying to find them is like fight night.

I may be small but I can plow through a crowd like no other.

12. Short jokes are inevitable.

They will never be funny, so please stop.

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.
