8 Ways Netflix's 'Tall Girl' Got Being The Tall Girl Right

"Face it, you're the tall girl."

8 Ways Netflix's 'Tall Girl' Got Being The Tall Girl Right

The new Netflix movie may have a cliche plot and message, but "Tall Girl" accurately displays parts of this (6 feet!) tall girl's high school experience. Watch the trailer here!

A nice guy is about to ask you out...

until he realizes that you are much taller than him.

PSA: There is nothing wrong with a woman being taller than her man!

"How's the weather up there?"

Haha. Like I haven't heard that one 70 times today.

Tall girls have short(er), spunky friends who often come to our defense in BIG ways

We'd be lost without them!

Finding fashionable clothes

It is very difficult to dress our oddly proportioned bodies in clothes that make us feel comfortable. Shopping with friends of society's "average" height is very frustrating and difficult.

Most tall girls don't want to date a short guy

It comes back to societal standards. For our entire lives, we struggle to fit in with society's definition of "feminine" because we are so tall. Insecurities often cloud our judgment in life, relationships and more.

The frustration of tall guys dating short girls

Come onnnnnnnnnnnnn

Being labeled "The Tall Girl"

You could be great at everything in the world or leading a project that you are passionate about, but no matter what the first thing that comes to someone's mind about you is, "Oh she's the tall girl."

People try and make you feel normal

But as Jodi (the lead in "Tall Girl") says, "Every time you try to make me feel more normal, you just end up making me feel more of a freak."

Now is this movie a perfect representation of what is it like being tall? No. But it does cover a lot of recurring themes in the lives of tall girls!

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
