Depends on how old u are. Even still it doesn't really matter. My friends mom is 4' 10" and he's 6' 1" at 14 years old. If your friends say you're too short, then they probably aren't your true friends.

Lol but I'm ugly :p
Report as
Awww, you're not ugly. I think... Don't put yourself down.
Report as
Thanks but you don't know what I look like
Report as
I know. I'm just trying to be optimistic.
Report as
Haha well thanks I guess :)
Report as
NP. Don't put yourself down. I have heard people say they're ugly, and I just give them a really stare. Don't put yourself down.
Report as
Ok :) ill remember that. I'm just used to guys calling me ugly
Report as
Wow... Those guys have to be jerks... Don't listen to them. I'm gonna go ahead and guess that they're either part of the popular crowd, or they're part of the punk crowd.
Report as
Yea they are. Thank you, you just made me a whole lot happier.
Report as
No problemo. And just ask yourself this. Why do their opinions matter? 25 years from now, what will they be? Where? They will be nothing. Popularity means nothing and does nothing for your future. They are just obnoxious turds.
Report as
I've actually never thought of it like that but your 100% right.
Report as
Not even 25 years. 10 years. 5 years if you're in high school. They will mean nothing. They will be nothing. You will something. They will wish they are you. Don't listen to them.
Report as
You are honestly so inspirational
Report as
Well it's the truth. You shouldn't take crap from them. Don't change for them. It is just a load, and they are trying to make you feel down. They put it inside your head that they are better than you. No one is better than anyone. we are all equals here. They are just trying to put you down and make you think they are better than you because they have more money, or they play sports. WHERE THE HECK DOES SPORTS GET YOU???? NO WHERE!!! Don't take it. Hold your head high and think (or say): You are no better than me. I am no better than you. You will be nothing. I will be something.
Anything like that. Do. Not. Take. Their. Crap!

Oh my goodness you just made my day! This is an odd question but do u have a twitter or kik or something? Lol I sound like a creep now XD
Report as
I can start up a kik if you want. And good. You need to have a good day.
Report as
Or have a made day.
Report as
You are so nice
Report as
Teen dude when you said SPORTS GET YOU NO WHERE I was all like "Unless you're black" LOL I'm just kidding tho. Most people think they're good enough to make it to the MLB or whatever when only like 1 in a million people get in.
Report as
I know. My friend once told me a joke
Why are black people so good at basketball? Because they can run, shoot, and steal.
I laughed at that so hard. And it was a black guy that said it. I dunno why, but we two like black jokes and hispanic jokes when he's black, and I'm hispanic
Report as
And you're right about the one in a million thing.
Report as
Yeah they all think that they can represent when they actually aren't exactly like athletic prodigies or anything. And most of them are so dumb that a sports scholarship is their only route to college.
Report as
I know, right? And none of them are very good. I can beat just about every jock in my school easily. They think they are so good. I set them straight. I publicly humiliate them. Cruel, but they don't mess with me, or my friends. They just think they're the most amazing people in the world. They're like, "Hey! Love me! I have money and play football!". I just roll my eyes and tolerate them. No changing what's been going on for decades. Jocks...
Report as
And then they get all the brainless girls that think they are telling the truth!
Report as
Exactly. Where do they think they are going?
Report as
And in my head, I'm just like "Your future is ending up owning your father's tire shop and getting fat selling Firestones. You are a human whose only "skill"
is sports and even then you aren't that great. You hit one homer in a year and you think that you're Buster Posey. At least be humble about yourself, even if you were any good." XD
Report as
THANK YOU!!!! DUDE! IF I WERE GAY, I WOULD SO MARRY YOU RIGHT NOW!!! FINALLY, SOMEONE ELSE WHO THINKS THE SAME AS ME!!! My brother is exactly like that. I am the smart child. The eldest, and the smartest. I'm also the most athletic, but I don't use it much. I care more for what I go to school for. That is to learn. I plan on being an Aerospace Engineer. My brother says he's gonna be a football player. He is one of those jocks.
Report as
But I feel kinda sad about some of them because their parents are super like Dance Moms and they are forced to do well in all their sports and then when they don't excel they get chastised.
Report as
Dance Moms? You watch that show too? My brother likes to tease me about it, saying it's a girls show. I don't care, I find it good. Some of them, I actually don't mind. A few are my friends, but most aren't. I come from a small town that is a HUGE sports town.
Report as
That's funny because my little brother is one of those kids who is smart but then he doesn't do anything all day except school and playing video games. Like, people(at least i think) that think I'm smart but I play 2 basketball leagues and then might even do cross country this year. And I'm not in orchestra or band but I play piano at home. And then there are these guys who I guess got on the "A team" in the town league and then they think that they're better than everyone because they're on it, even though they didn't win one game!
Report as
I used to play sports, but then because I signed up for all these classes that will help me get the career I want, I got really busy. And I took music lessons.
Report as
I've seen a few episodes of Dance Moms(along with, shamefully, a few Honey Boo Boos) and it was alright! And I guess they are just really pushing of their daughters because they want them to do great where they didn't, and they don't care if their kids are being forced to the border of child labor dancing for hours a day!
Report as
I have watched it a bit. It is a good show. And I ain't afraid to admit it.
Report as
Yeah I want to have a science-related career so I joined the STEM program at my school.
Report as
I'm only on middle school though so there aren't many options :(
Report as
Ah. I now that feeling. This is my first year in High School, and middle school has next to nothing if you want to excel.
Report as
I'm trying to take all I can to get ahead but I'm so grateful that I didn't do Orchestra because you can't do Orchestra And STEM due to the scheduling. And STEM is all science stuff so I'm happy. But I can't wait to take auto shop and woodshop and other skills with your hands in high school, as well as a language.
Report as
I know. They offer so much more in HS than MS.
Report as
Yup.
Report as
I could've taken Spanish but I backed out. I'm in Art instead now. I'm just gonna do Rosetta Stone and see how many languages I can learn and then take the classes and finish them faster.

You never know for sure. Has the pediatrician measured your hand bones and stuff and made a prediction as to how tall you'll be?

It is a good feeling. I tease my mom. I'm four inches taller. I call her shorty. She tells me to shut up dork.

Lol once in a while I just walk up to her and stand up super straight and she's all like "I know, I know, you're taller than me".

Lol! I have done that too. I am taller than most people, so I get to this kind of stuff a lot.

Back then, most big companies wouldn't hire short people. To make things worst, they don't have a standard height requirements for short people. If they see you as short in height, you failed to being hired. That's why, back in the '70s, there was a song about short people which was included in the movie too. But in this day and age, this is no longer true. So you're well off compared from the folks back then...
