    Have No Choice

    For two reasons:  They don't grow well, they are very soft.  I can't afford to get manicures right now.  Since, I am going into the medical profession, short nails are more practical and professional.  Long nails tear fragile skin and poke holes in latex...

    Bad Habit

    They're short because I bite my nails. It's weird, people assume I'm always nervous or something, but it's just a habit. I bite them all the time. Plus, long nails creep me out. I think it's kind of gross.

    Way More Practical..

    First of all I hate typing with long fingernails, my fingers have to touch the keys, not only the nails! Apart from that it's not handy at all to have long nails when you want to play the guitar or play the piano. And last but not least I always end up with a my nails looking...
