    Just Being Tall

    Everyone looks at you by the corner of their eyes when you walk past. They may not do it so obviously but you definitely are aware of it. It's irritating. And worst is when strangers even come up to you to comment on your height. Like okay. Haven't they seen tall people before...

    I'm 16, 5'8" (173cm) tall.

    It seems fine but it only applies 'fine' if I'm a guy. I've been the tallest since I was in kindergarten. Forever at the back of the queue, sitting at the sides of classes, standing in the middle during class photo taking and being the center of attention. It may seem nice...
