So today I want to talk about something that's been on my mind for a while now. Being abnormally tall is not as great as it may seem. Sure, people always say how lucky I am and how being tall must come with all these advantages, but let me tell you, it's not all rainbows and sunshine.
One of the biggest struggles of being this tall is the constant attention I get wherever I go. People can't help but stare at me like some kind of freak show attraction. It gets really annoying after a while because all I want is to blend in like everyone else. But when you're towering over everyone else in the room, blending in becomes quite impossible.
Finding Clothes That Fit
Another struggle that comes with my height is finding clothes that actually fit me properly. Let me tell you, shopping for pants or shirts is an absolute nightmare! Most stores don't carry sizes long enough for someone like me and even if they do have XL sizes available, they still end up looking too short on my frame.
I can't count how many times I've had to settle for ill-fitting clothes just because there weren't any other options available. And don't even get me started on shoes! It's almost impossible to find sneakers or dress shoes in my size without having them custom made.
Constantly Hitting My Head
You know what's worse than constantly bumping into things? Constantly hitting your head! Because of my height, door frames become formidable opponents waiting to knock some sense into Murasakibara Atsushi every time he forgets to duck down low enough before entering a room.
It has become somewhat of a reflex now – every time I approach a doorway or anything hanging from above (like chandeliers), instinctively ducking has become necessary so as not to add another lump on top of this already tall head of mine.
The Struggle with Food
Now, let's talk about one of my favorite things in the world – food. Being abnormally tall comes with an abnormally large appetite too. It takes a lot to fuel this towering body of mine, but finding enough food to satisfy my hunger can be quite the challenge.
When I go out to eat, I often find myself ordering multiple portions just to feel somewhat satisfied. And don't even get me started on snacks! Regular-sized bags or packages are like appetizers for me; they barely make a dent in my hunger.
And then there's shopping for groceries. Trying to reach items on high shelves is practically impossible without some assistance from others or using those long poles designed specifically for people like me who can't reach anything above their heads easily.
Lastly, being abnormally tall automatically sets certain expectations when it comes to basketball. People assume that just because I'm taller than most players, I must have some incredible talent and passion for the sport. But here's a secret: I actually don't care much about basketball at all!
Sure, it may come as a surprise considering how good I am at playing it naturally due to my height advantage and physical abilities (not bragging or anything), but deep down inside, basketball isn't something that excites me or makes me passionate.
I play simply because people expect great things from someone like Murasakibara Atsushi – someone who stands head and shoulders above everyone else on court (literally).
So there you have it diary – the struggles of being abnormally tall summed up in these few words. From constant stares and difficulty finding clothes that fit properly; hitting my head everywhere I go; struggling with satisfying this never-ending appetite of mine; dealing with unrealistic basketball expectations... life sure has its challenges when you're as vertically blessed as yours truly.
But hey, it's not all bad. There are some perks to being this tall too (like having an advantage in certain sports or never needing a step ladder). However, at the end of the day, I just want people to see beyond my height and treat me like any other person.
Until next time,
