the issue of height

 sorry for all the weird random pictures. it is sort of hard to find pictures that appropriately illustrate my height 
also sorry for all the random pixelation, i have this weird paranoia about blogging pictures with people i know, because i wonder whether they know about my blog and if they do if they're upset about me posting pictures of them or if they don't if they would be if they knew and augh so that's why
 look im taller than a dalek!
 hanging out with someone taller than me at a hookah place
dressed like a hooker
HOOKAH HOOKER
 halloween thing w a bunch of people and also looking scared
"scared" is sort of my default photo face
prom!

so here is the thing.
i am six feet tall.
it is kind of weird.
i know it's not THAT unusual to be six feet tall but... well, honestly, it kind of is. everyone thinks they want to be super tall, and the thing is
it's kind of great.
but it's also kind of not.
i can reach things-i am the tallest person in my family-i am very easily noticed (the hair helps, too)
but it is kind of weird explaining to everyone that no i cannot be a model because i am not thin enough (height is not all that matters)
plus my face isn't quite right
i have been asked to model multiple times but i am sort of intimidated. i don't really have the confidence. maybe i will get there.
last time i was at my dad's place he told me he needed a lightbulb changed and it turned out he had saved it specially for my visit.
and everyone thinks they're super creative when they tell me i should play volleyball or basketball
when in reality i am much more likely to be hit in the face with a volleyball or a basketball than anything else
due to extremely poor hand eye coordination.
also where all the tall bois and gurls at
certainly not around here.
i can't wear heels without feeling like i'm going to smash tokyo.
the first thing anyone says about me about 75 percent of the time is "wow you're tall"
yes dear i have been quite tall for a while now i am maybe aware of this.
also getting clothes to fit is weird. but that might just be how i'm shaped. since i'm so limby sleeves and pants hems are often off.
i'm learning to love it. it's definitely easier in new york city than in pennsylvania.

I loooove the dress you are wearing in the Dalek picture. I used to want to be tall but it's probably good I'm not cause my boyfriend isn't that tall. I am jealous that you have skinny limbs though, I love skinny limbs! They look soooo cool! I also hate basketball and netball. I am hopeless at sport and in high school the netball bitches used to be bitches to me. I am so uncoordinated. When I tried to hit a baseball once I hit myself in the head with the bat really hard. I think I am an odd shape, too. I have a tiny top half but a larger bottom half. argh,. plus I really need to get back to post -xmas exercise :P thanks for all your comments, they are so nice!

Your post is very funny!! I'm tall too, not as much as you, few inches less, but I swear that in Italy is enough to make you fell as a giant!
The weirdest thing that happened to me is that people from a shop where I worked used me as a human ladder or made me took off the spiderwebs from the ceiling!!
But now that I'm grown up I'm more confident with it, I always wear wedges and I would like to be taller! :)
