I've been picked on since 2nd grade up to 12th, and now I'm like a rock. NOTHING that anybody says towards my looks, my height, anything can get to me now. It's a little late for it now, but anyway it's pretty cool to walk into an art critique and come out unscathed mentally. And a tip to anybody who reads this that is in elementary/middle/highschool, once you go to college, NONE of that petty stuff'll matter (except your grades). I was scared to death of middle/high school, but once I look back on it I realise that NONE of it was worth my worry, the only thing that was scaring me was my own thoughts of what some idiots thought of me. Please, don't let the fear own you! Become immune to the snide remarks.
