    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...

    The Revelation Of Height

    When I was younger, I thought being tall was really cool. I was always the tallest in the class and had an easy time with a lot of the sports. However with time, I've realized height is more of a disadvantage than an advantage. I'm 15 now and just over 6'5. Clothes and shoes are...

    Okay time for a rant.

    I honestly hate being tall. People constantly asking "How tall are you?", "How's the weather up there.", "Hey, come help me reach this!" and many more! People think that being tall is great, but it really isn't. I am 6 ft 2 or maybe 6ft 3 (I hate measuring myself for obvious...
