Pros and Cons of Being Short

-->
I'd like to think I've became quite pro at this whole being short thing.  Ever since I was slightly below average height in Elementary School – I think I’ve definitely figured out the good and bad about being short.

Cons of Being Short:
  • "What up, shorty"...just doesn't get old. Oh wait -- it does.
  • Buying Jeans. You have to hem EVERYTHING. Buying pants in short is so hard. They don't usually carry them.
  • Looking like a child (and sounding like a child)…“Are you old enough to do that?” so annoying. I guess it will pay off when I’m old.
  • “Damsel in distress” happens nearly every day when trying to reach for things.  You have to use stools for EVERYTHING or ask a cute boy to get things for you (which could be a good thing…)  But this is contradicting for the pro that you can get low shelf items easier.
  • Getting picked last for sporting events. We just don’t look like we have much game…and let’s be honest…most of us don’t. But some do!
  • Dance Parties – (my head is elbow height) Also applies to concerts.
  • Shorter Legs – I can’t run as fast. 
  • When you’re pregnant you look HUGE.  But some may say it looks cute, but let’s be honest…they’re really making fun of you. A great example = Snookie.
  • You’re always expected to take the hump seat in the back of the car.
  • The awkward doorstep scene when they have to bend their knees and you’re struggling to stay balanced as you kiss goodnight. The key though is to stand on a stair. Also holding hands is hard sometimes you have to bend your arm upward to reach his.
  • We suck at fighting. Someone can put us in a headlock or something and you can’t get out. However, we are in a perfect location for a great kneeing.

Pros of Being Short:
  • Being able to date pretty much anyone the heck I want! There is like a 95% chance that I am taller than any boy that asks me out…so I’ve got that going for me.
  • Being able to fit into smaller spaces without ducking. Yeah…sucks for all you tall people who have to slouch down to fit in a tunnel or something where for me I just casually can walk on through.  Playing on toys at a park is where this is prime.
  • Awkward things are cuter when you’re short.  Just like a little kid.  When they spill their milk everyone just laughs and checks to make sure they’re okay…"oops.."
  • You don’t look like an idiot using child size things.  SUCH AS- drinking from the child drinking fountain--Much shorter lines, and well, you look fairly normal.  Also, you don’t look like a pedophile when standing by the children.
  • Children accept you as one of them. You can play with them and they like you 20x more than a tall person--You just fit in.
  • Falling hurts much less. If you trip you have much less chance of hurting yourself and also, your fall it will happen quicker so you’ll look less retarded.
  • Two words: FRONT ROW.
  • I recently found that I can fit into child size shoes….which is quite possibly the best thing ever. Children shoes are pretty much half the price of adult shoes…and they’re just as cute! I mean…besides the ones that look super childlike. Exhibit A-I got some Asics running shoes for $40 that are pink and super cute…where as the adult ones are $80. Bam.
  • People just feel inclined to protect you.
  • If you are tall, everyone expects you to carry the team in sand volleyball, or basketball. If you are short, you have ZERO pressure, and if you score everyone is so proud.
  • Everyone loves hugging the short girl who fits nicely around your waist and under your arm.
  • Cuddling is much easier if you’re short. Awkward to say that…but you all know it’s true.
  • Sleep like a queen in a twin size bed.
  • In general, we're just more space efficient, also in a zombie war or something…you can’t eat what you can’t find… so yeah. Hide and Seek at its finest.
  • Also, another comparison -- ever meet a puppy you didn’t like? Exactly.

Happenings


I think more often than not, a song is better at describing my life.  Sooooo:

Soundtrack to my Life - Currently
{can be favorites, with meaning, or whatev}

Belle of the Boulevard by Dashboard - I'd never heard this song til recently and it's basically a favorite song now. It kind of has a little significance, but whatev. Nothing really exciting to get into.

Guts by All Time Low - "Is this what it feels like, finding out that i've got the guts to say anything? Feels like breaking out.....Finally, I can see, Honestly, I've got the guts to say anything."

Rooftops & Invitations by Dashboard - okay, why have there been so many good Dashboard songs and I haven't known about them til now? Anyway. "She just might get you lost, and she just might leave you torn.  But she just might save your soul, but she gets you any closer." The way I take this song is how I am with boys.  With me, here's how it goes with boys.  I read a blog recently that explained it better than me so I'm just gonna post an excerpt from it.  She explains things much better than me:


Then comes along a boy, oh so nonchalantly, and starts to make you laugh. He makes your heart skip a bajillion beats a minute. He remembers words that you said that even YOU don’t remember. He shows up to your house with diet coke. He puts little notes on your car that make you giddy as hell. He tells you to listen to certain songs that remind  him of you.. and they are beautiful.
Before you know it, AH. You are sucked in. Your world is spinning and you can’t focus and you are only thinking of him throughout your day. When you aren’t with him, you want to be. And it really starts to freak you out, because it reminds you of the last time you felt like this. And even more-so the way that feeling and relationship so tragically ended. And you remember how bad it hurt. And how you don’t even want to have to go through that again.

So you slowly start to pull away from that boy who made you laugh.  Even though he really can make you laugh pretty hard.  And you dispose of that playlist of songs he showed you.  And those notes he put on your car...? They gotta go.

And you shut him out.  When really you could have had something so beautiful even the moon and the starts would have been jealous.  You shut him and the feeling out because of fear.

And he is confused and mad..and you have to act like you don't even care.  But really you do care.  A whole lot.  But you just can't. He eventually gives up, and goes on to find another girl.  And you're left with your books and music again.  But it's okay.  Because your heart is still in one piece....right?
so there is why I like that dashboard song...I just sometimes am scared to let boys in...and so they just might be great...or they just might leave me torn. 
Next song,
ANYTHING BY IMAGINE DRAGONS. Basically, they are my new fav band. If you don't know them...check out Radioactive, On Top of the World or It's Time. They're great.
Why You Wanna by Jana Kramer - Getting over someone is rough.
Angel Eyes by Love & Theft - ABSOLUTELY LOVEEEE THIS SONG. Good lyrics, cute boys who sing it..and yeah.
Fell in Love Without You by Motion City Soundtrack (the Acoustic Version) - Instead of falling in love WITH someone, you fall in love without the other person.  So basically you fall in love and they don't.
Gangnam Style by PSY - haha. it's pretty darn good. and pumps you for any occasion. and the music video makes you love this song even more. although...I am curious what they're saying (since it's in Korean)
50 Ways to Say Goodbye by Train - just a good, fun song.
And there you have it. :) My current life in the summary of 9 songs.

things i'll never say...


avril lavigne was basically the soundtrack of my middle school years, and a few songs in particularly stand out that i love. i remember jamming out listening to avril through my boom box as i caked on the eye liner every morning before school.

aside from sk8er boi and complicated, the song "things i'll never say" was a favorite. basically i'm one of those people who don't really have the guts to say things...but i have things that would definitely make me feel better if i let them out..

i'd like to say these things in hopes that i'll stop thinking about them.. it's not that i'm too stubborn or prideful to say these things...some things are just left to be unsaid, and well, let's be real, some of these things are WAY too mean to say to the person.

so without further ado, therapy via blogging about the things i'll never say...written in random order via letters (and in no way are they tied to their name...or are they?)

Dear A,
I think about you every now and then and i worry about how you're choosing to live your life. not that i'm judging, and i know you've been through a lot, but i also know that you do know better and that you're being an idiot. abusing substances will only get you so far, and it's not really getting you anywhere. I'm nervous that one day i'm going to read on facebook that you overdosed on drugs or that you've been found dead, and that makes me really sad and scared. i still care about you, although you probably could care less about me. quit being stupid and throwing away your life.

Dear B,
I'm honestly mad at you, and really hurt by you. I'm mad you dont care...and I'm mad that i care. im also embarrassed i still let you affect me. i also would like to point out that i think its SO stupid you date annoying girls...because i am fabulous. and funny. But despite how much you've put me through, i still think the world of you. You dont deserve me thinking that..to be honest. I wish you hadn't taken up so many years of my life. I was a good friend to you...and I wish you would have appreciated and realized that.

Dear C,
I think you're one of the most annoying people i know, and yet i'm way jealous of how smart you are. i wish that every day that i could beat you at something, and yet you still come out on top and that bugs me. you also are such a great suck up and for that, i find you so repulsive. i also think you secretly hate me.

Dear D,
I'm offended that you like the others more than me.. It hurts my feelings a little. I work really hard to please you.

Dear E,
I've stopped asking about your dating life because i'm honestly so jealous. i'm jealous how you surpassed every record i could ever set, and came out way above. it honestly makes me so jealous how great you've became at everything. you also like to talk a lot and monopolize conversations...we all know your life is great. we get it.

Dear F,
I'm sorry i hurt you. however, you shouldn't need to tell everyone about it and make me look like a brat. also, you've seemed to find yourself a great life so please stop bringing me up. i did care a lot for you but it just wasn't there for me..okay?

Dear G,
the world doesn't revolve around you. i'm sorry, and i think the fact on how you make me guilty for stuff all the time is really rude and inconsiderate. i truly do think you're gorgeous and think you're fun, so quit making me feel guilty when i can't come to hang out with you. also, making me lie for you was such a rude thing to make me do. i hope you realize how hard it was for me to do that...and appreciate it.

Dear H,
i honestly think you're perfect for me, except when you say those stupid things sometimes that makes me regret ever thinking that. i wish i were brave enough to actually try things. i'm sorry i'm scared. i'm always careful with things, and i just don't ever show it. i hope you'll give me a good chance though.

Dear I,
STOP BUGGING ME ABOUT GETTING MARRIED.
i'll work on it when i can, but quit trying to show me how to change me to be better at dating.

Dear J,
I think you are one of the biggest jerks i've ever met, and i'm sorry that i ever considered hanging out with you since you got home from your mission.  i'm embarrassed at how you think i'm in love with you or something..but news flash -- i could care less about you. i tried to be nice and then you start talking bad about me..so whatevs.

Dear K,
i love how fakely nice you are to me...especially because it's just when you want to date one of my best friends. and i feel fake when i talk to you too..and i hate being fake. you thought i wanted to date this particular best friend of mine too, and guess what? i did...and well as much as i hate to admit it -- you won him. and yep i really honestly wanted him, and when you asked me if i did and i denied it -- yep i lied. so congratulations.

Dear L,
okay miss better than everyone, when you tell people that we're bad friends...you should take a quick look at yourself first. we were good friends to you, and you never took the time to realize that. it hurts my feelings a little... and i'm offended that you hate me.

Dear M,
i think you're perfect...and i want to marry you. we have a lot in common, and we have fun...but it will never work so i wish you would stop talking to me so much because it makes me want it.

as for the rest of you in this world... most of you i love and after reading this i hope you don't think i'm a bratty person. i think sooo many of my friends are fun, and great people and i look up to you all. the people above are just special cases, and i wish i could say these.. also, i'm slightly embarrassed for the few people (you know who you are) that probably can figure out who i'm talking about in some of them...haha. and for that...i'm sorry.

k BYEEEE.
