20 Perks of Being Short

Since y'all seemed to like my 20 Struggles of Being Short post, I decided to write a 20 Perks of Being Short follow up. Hope you like it, and if you do please let me know in the comments! :)

1. After a party at your friends house, you can comfortably sleep on their couch if you don't want to / can't go home. You can basically nap anywhere you want!

2. Short girls always seem younger, meaning when you're 35 you'll finally be able to be happy about it.

3. You'll always have leg room while travelling economy class on planes or trains!!

4. When you're at a concert, more often than not people will let you go in front of them. It's also a great conversation starter! (I met a couple of people at concerts who let me go in front of them and who I then became friends with :))

5. You can shop in the children's section. Although you wouldn't wear most of the clothes, you can usually find something that you like. Some stores even sell the same shirts or jeans for women and girls, so you can save some money by buying the small sizes :)

6. You can wear heels and don't have to worry about looking like a giant.

7. Although you often need to ask for help to reach something, either in the grocery shop or when you want to reach the overhead compartment on a plane, it again makes for a great conversation starter :)

8. When going to a restaurant, you can usually get away with ordering the kids menu, which costs about half of a regular sized meal.

9. If you should go to a restaurant and order a big pizza or huge portion of pasta, your date will probably be impressed with how much you can eat and find it cute/adorable! 

10. On that note, people usually underestimate you, making it quite easy to impress them. Yes, I can drive that gigantic SUV, and yes, I can totally kick your ass (thanks to the kickboxing class I took in college!)

11. You can ignore the signs that warn you about low ceilings and you probably never hit your head, ever. Plus, you're great at limbo :)

12. No one asks you to help them carry around heavy things. But if you were to actually help them, they would be seriously impressed by your upper body strength!

13. The shower head in your hotel room or apartment is never too low, meaning you don't have to do a weird shower dance / yoga in order to get your hair wet.

14. You usally win at hide and seek! While your tall friends struggle to find a place to hide, you can basically hide anywhere :)

15. When playing basketball in high school, you were able to run through your friends' legs, giving them no chance to catch you. Who cares about the rules anyway.

16. Because you have to walk faster than your tall friends, you will become fit by simply enjoying your Sunday walk (is that even a thing any more??)

17. Being short means that you are likely to live longer. At least that's what my Biology teacher once told me.

18. If you should trip over your feet, you don't fall as low as tall people. Hehe.

19. You don't look intimidating, meaning people will trust you more easily.

20. Last but not least, you're always the cute and adorable one, whether you like it or not! :)

  2. Lovely post. I can relate to this post so much! Perk of being short, you can sit however you like and put your feet on your car dashboard when sitting on the shotgun seat. Love the comment you left on my blog, if you wish we could connect and keep in touch via a common platform.

    1. Haha, true, I put my feet up on the dashboard all the time.
      Sure, I'd love that! You can also find me on twitter if you want, it's probably the easiest way to keep in touch :)
