It started in 3rd grade when these girls pointed at me and one used to always call me tree and skyscraper. I use to go to the bathroom when no one was in there and cry then walk out like nothing happen. Worst than that is i had dreads. people use to pull them and just mess with me. I'm going to skip up to 5th grade, this year was not as bad but a little worse. This boy and I were so called dating and he was shorter than me. So people use to always laugh and stare at me when I stood by him. People started to ease up on my hair but use to still laugh when i had it curled. they called them worms, snakes and ugly. But they still use to call me freak,giraffe,skyscraper,pole,tree and tall. Now I'm in 6th grade and its a little different since I'm in middle school now. I use to think I was extremely over my normal height for my age and I found out I've always been tall for my age. I use to try to get rid of my dreads now I'm going to keep them for as long as i can. Since i go to a different school now i don't know everyone so they pick on my hair and call it weave,pull it, try to take them out etc. But now I'm EXTREMELY insecure about my height I use to search up ways to get shorter, curl my legs when I sleep, sit down when I'm near a person I like. But sometimes you gotta work with what you got. Now I am 5'7 at 12 years old and still have my dreads. And absolutely love them but I still want to get shorter so I can be normal like the rest of the people in 6th grade.
