10 Questions/Comments Every Tall Girl Has Gotten (And Really Doesn't Need To Hear Again)

Apparently looking different from most people includes an invitation for strangers to comment on your appearance..?

10 Questions/Comments Every Tall Girl Has Gotten (And Really Doesn't Need To Hear Again)
Posh Point

1. Oh my god you are so tall!

Oh my god you are so short! I know what I look like, thanks for reminding me though.

2. How tall are you?

None of your business. (5'10.5")

3. Have you grown?

Not that I needed to, but yea... probably.

4. Do you play basketball?

No, sorry to disappoint you. I don't play volleyball either. :/

5. You should model!

Thanks..? But no thanks.

6. How's the weather up there?

Gorgeous. You dandruff has never looked snowier.

7. Can I have the front seat?

Nope, sorry... my legs are not made for back seats. I get automatic shot-gun. :P

8. Isn't that dress/skirt/pair of shorts a little short?

Hey, it's not my fault i'm not regular-girl sized. Stores don't typically make clothes tailored to my (uncommon) proportions! Try to find me a pair of shorts that will go down to my knee. Try. I dare you.

9. I'm sorry, we don't carry tall/long sizes in-store!

Thanks! That's actually perfect because now I know that those pants that I need for tonight will be at my house in 5-7 business days. Just peachy.

10. *Stands on step/chair/table* Look, now I'm taller than you!


As annoying as the bombardment of nosy, personal questions from strangers can get, there is something indescribably empowering about towering over people and being un-ignorable. I wouldn't trade it for anything.

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.
