    No, it's okay, I don't mind telling anyone how tall I am. About 5' even. My mom says I'm 4'11", but I prefer to round up, thanks. :P

    What a problem to have.

    Though being underweight can be dangerous if you get really sick. You are pretty tiny, Kelleo. I'm 5'4 1/2" but my best friend who is a fraction of an inch taller than me, if that, thinks she's 5'6". I'm like, girl, you are full of shit, but think what you want. I don't get why people feel a need to be 'taller' for reasons other than practicality. It's just perpetuating the stereotypes that allow tall men to make more money than short men, and men in general to make more money than women, even doing the exact same job with the same credentials and everything.

    Being small was one of the things I was often bullied for back in school. They'd call me shorty and such other names just to be dicks. And being small means you're not noticed, so you get bumped into a lot. And I get knocked over easily. One time playing floor hockey in PE back in middle school, this boy slammed into me so hard, I fell over and my glasses were so bent that they wouldn't stay on my face. And that boy didn't even stumble from me hitting him. And I can hardly fit into any clothes for women my age. I'm still stuck in little girl outfits. It sucks. And it's hard to shop for me still because some clothes I HAVE to wear, like outfits for job interviews, I can't find any that fit!

    There are a few nice things about being little though. That part about not being noticed easily? Lets me sneak around without getting caught. And I can fit into boys' Nintendo t-shirts and kids' Disney t-shirts. But imo, the negatives outweigh the positives. I wish I could just take a little growth hormone sometimes...

    I see, that would be hard.

    That sounds hard, but remember, you're unique and special the way you are. If you drastically changed your appearance, it wouldn't be... you really.

    Good thing you don't have to play floor hockey anymore! I'm eight inches taller than you and still no one notices me, heh. I can see your issue though, that must be hard.

    See, that's why you have people on the internet. At least here, you can physically block/ignore the dicks.

    I'm also at the age now where I realize that there are a ton of dicks in this world (I know how that sounded). But seriously, all you can do with the idiots and ignorant people is ignore them and surround yourself with and focus on the people in your life that you love. The people who love you for who you are... those are the people that matter.

    I'd rather that the way it sounded was more true than what you meant, honestly.

    Look at it this way Kelleo. You have an excuse to have guys get things for you. "Oh, hey, can you reach this for me? Thanks! ^o~"

    Oh, I'm so retarded, ignore me.

    But anyway, I've written nearly 1k words today on the next chapter of, "You Win Some, You Lose Some!" and I think I'll get even more in before I go to bed. Progress~!

    The thing is, guys, I don't think I was actually supposed to turn out this way. See, a long time ago, I was misdiagnosed with ADHD (because I have Asperger's Syndrome. It's common for people with that to be misdiagnosed with ADHD) and was put on medication. That medication, I was told, had likely hindered my growth. So in actuality, I should be taller. Maybe not much, but that's fine. I just want to be at least as tall as my mom, is all. And she's only like 5'4".

    But true, NoirGrimoir, I can ask guys to get things down for me, lol. And no, you're not retarded. XD

    That's unfortunate...

    Not much you can do, though.

    So I guess there really is no way I can take a little growth hormone. At least without real risk to my health, I suppose.

    5'4" is a nice height for girls anyway. In my opinion, at least.
