You can’t change how God Made You.
So get confident.
Achieve something amazing that people taller than you can’t get to.

I'm not saying that me being small is a bad thing...

Yeah, that maybe average height for where you are, but here it's small

Oh, and I would like to stay this height...

At 5 foot 6 Inches, You are wrong to call yourself a midget.

Yep, that happened with me.
If I was late to a lesson, I could just ask a teacher the way to my classroom, and I would be allowed to go through the inside way

:laugh: that must be absolutely great... the problem is... my school is so flipping tiny that most of the teachers know who you are and they know it's pretty much impossible to get lost after 2 months unless you're an idiot

With my school, your teachers only know you if they teach/taught you, and even if they don't teach you in 6th form, they know you are 6th form, because more than likely, they have seen you in the common room when they come in to buy a coffee

:laugh: i kinda envy you... it must be nice to not have teachers knowing who you are... for me, it's kinda annoying how most of the teachers recognise me.. it's probably because i've been in this school since year 7 so most of the teachers are familiar with who I am

It's not that they know who you are, but they recognise you, as you walk down the corridors

Same tbh. I'm 17 and 5 foot 4. The Year 7's and 8's are mostly short (thank god) but I have been in the corridors with Year 9's, 10's and 11's and some of them outgrow me. It makes me feel tiny (lol).

Other than that, I don't really care about my height because I am taller than some people in my year. I do feel like a dwarf in the common room compared to Year 13's, though.

Anyway, enough about me and my height. I know you said in a previous reply that you wouldn't change your height, but if you *had* to become taller, how tall would you be? Can't really think of other questions.

Are you female? If so that isn't even that small.

Thought you had dwarfism or something.
