10 Things Tall Girls Hear All Too Often

10 Things Tall Girls Hear All Too Often

I know I'm tall, thanks.


Tall girls hear a lot of crap everyday and most of the time we just roll our eyes at what we hear. We have heard all the jokes about the weather and whatever other jokes that people come up with that they think are funny. I personally have developed a whole range of replies to those jokes and the comments that people like to make; however, this article is all about the things that us tall girls hear on a daily basis.

1. Wow, you must have played on so many sports teams in high school.

Band counted as gym so it counts as a sport, right? If so, then yes. If not, no.

2. What sport do you play in college?

Hi, I may have the height to play on a Division One Basketball Team, but I don't have the athletics ability to do so. The last time I played basketball was in Biddy League and I was horrible.

3. How tall are your parents?

I usually tell them how tall my dad is and then tell them about how short my mom is. I honestly get so sick of this question.

4. Your dress is too short.

My legs are long and I can't help it #notsorry.

5. Guys won't like you since you are so much taller than them.

If anyone tells this to any of my fellow tall girls out there, cut those negative people out of your life. I struggled with this for a long time and guess what?

I'm now happily dating a wonderful man that is two inches shorter than me and IT DOESN'T MATTER! The right guy will love you for exactly who you are and won't care that you are taller.

6. Is there enough leg room back there?

Yes, of course, is my answer even though my knees are in the air and I barely can get my legs behind the seat. *For anyone who has tall friends please make it a rule that tall friends automatically call shotgun at all times.*

7. Are you sure that you don't need to order the tall size?

I hear this from my mom and grandma all the time when I order my clothes.

Thankfully, I have found a brand that I consistently order from that always meets my expectations and fits perfectly!

8. Wow, you have gotten so tall.

Well, I mean you haven't seen me since I was five so I was bound to grow at some point.

9. Can you move to the back for the picture?

No, I really don't because I want to be in the front with all my friends, but whatever.

10. Do you like being tall?

I think I have a love-dislike relationship with it because sometimes it's great and other times it's not.

Everything You Will Miss If You Commit Suicide

The world needs you.

You won't see the sunrise or have your favorite breakfast in the morning.

Instead, your family will mourn the sunrise because it means another day without you.

You will never stay up late talking to your friends or have a bonfire on a summer night.

You won't laugh until you cry again, or dance around and be silly.

You won't go on another adventure. You won't drive around under the moonlight and stars.

They'll miss you. They'll cry.

You won't fight with your siblings only to make up minutes later and laugh about it.

You won't get to interrogate your sister's fiancé when the time comes.

You won't be there to wipe away your mother's tears when she finds out that you're gone.

You won't be able to hug the ones that love you while they're waiting to wake up from the nightmare that had become their reality.

You won't be at your grandparents funeral, speaking about the good things they did in their life.

Instead, they will be at yours.

You won't find your purpose in life, the love of your life, get married or raise a family.

You won't celebrate another Christmas, Easter or birthday.

You won't turn another year older.

You will never see the places you've always dreamed of seeing.

You will not allow yourself the opportunity to get help.

This will be the last sunset you see.

You'll never see the sky change from a bright blue to purples, pinks, oranges, and yellows meshing together over the landscape again.

If the light has left your eyes and all you see is the darkness, know that it can get better. Let yourself get better.

This is what you will miss if you leave the world today.

This is who will care about you when you are gone.

You can change lives. But I hope it's not at the expense of yours.

We care. People care.

Don't let today be the end.

You don't have to live forever sad. You can be happy. It's not wrong to ask for help.

Thank you for staying. Thank you for fighting.

Suicide is a real problem that no one wants to talk about. I'm sure you're no different. But we need to talk about it. There is no difference between being suicidal and committing suicide. If someone tells you they want to kill themselves, do not think they won't do it. Do not just tell them, “Oh you'll be fine." Because when they aren't, you will wonder what you could have done to help. Sit with them however long you need to and tell them it will get better. Talk to them about their problems and tell them there is help. Be the help. Get them assistance. Remind them of all the things they will miss in life.

If you or someone you know is experiencing suicidal thoughts, call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline — 1-800-273-8255

If I Could Dream A Perfect Day, This Is What I'd Do

An inside look at what my dream day would be like.


Have you ever just had such a crappy day that you find yourself lying in bed daydreaming about what your perfect day would be like? No limitations, no pain, no frustrations. Just whatever you want.

Well, I have. Here is a look at what my perfect day would contain.

1. Teleportation


I know, I know. The first thing on my list is something that could absolutely never happen, at least in my lifetime. But hear me out.

I want to travel, but any form of transportation makes me sick. Cars, boats, planes, trains, you name it I end getting sick. So if I could teleport than I wouldn't have to deal with it. Plus I wouldn't have to pay for gas or airfare. It's a win-win.

2. My Mom

It wouldn't be a perfect day if my mom wasn't along for the ride. Who else would I have fun with and then rub it in my brothers face later?

Just kidding, he would come too.

3. Food


It would not be a prefect day if it didn't involve food. And if it was free it would be even better.

4. London


I have been dying to go back to London, and if it was my perfect day I would definitely take a trip over the pond!

5. Meet the Stars


If it was going to be my perfect day, I would meet some celebrities. Let me scream, and jump, and totally fangirl in front of Emma Watson, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Hemsworth, Zac Efron, and Robert Downey Jr. just to name a few.

6. Meet Fictional Characters


Earlier I said no limitations, so that means I get to meet fictional characters such as the Mikaelson family, the Golden Trio, Sirius Black, the Avengers, the Joker (he wouldn't kill me), and Hannibal Lecter (he also wouldn't kill me) to name a few.

7. Disney World


Bring on the magic! I want to go to Disney World and not have to wait in any lines. That would be a perfect day.

8. Learn a New Language


If I could learn how to speak French or German in a day that would be amazing.

9. Queen Concert


If I could close out the day by traveling back in time to see a Queen concert with Freddie Mercury back on stage that would be the perfect end to the perfect day.

10. Happiness

If everyone that I love was completely happy, with no stresses holding them down, for just one day that would definitely be a part of my perfect day.
