First and foremost i would like to thank god for giving me this opportunity. Next i would like to thank my parents. I want to thank my cat Belle, for being really fat and always there for me. I would also like to thank my pet tadpole for surviving against all odds for over a week. Next i would like to thank the squirrel that lives in my backyard for climbing trees because that gives me inspiration that i need to get through the day. I also want to think Max Rainer for giving me someone to beat in Mario Party. This is a special moment in my life and i would like to thank any of my unmentioned friends and family that have helped me along the way. This moment will be a moment that i will never forget. I just remmembered a few other people i would like to thank; facebook, the fish i caught in the third grade, my light in my room bc i wouldn’t be able to see the keyboard without it, the internet for letting me go on facebook, my house because without it i would be homeless, and last but not least i would like to thank all the people out there that actually took time out of their day to read this. I cannot stress how much of a big deal to me this is. I have been trying to be the first comment on a post for years, but that has not been possible until this amazing day. Hopefully my good luck will continue, but this is undoubtedly a rare occasion. If you asked me how i did this, i would say, you can achieve anything u set your mind on. To all the kids out there reading this, i would like to tell them to follow their dreams. Being the top comment is amazing, thank you everyone.

    EDIT: OMG I failed.
    Maybe if it wasn't a damned paragraph then you might have been first comment

    Then there's the problem with my feet being a size 15 American Men's Standard size. I have to special order all of my shoes because sizes stop at 14 for decent shoes, almost every shoe store only sells loafers in size 15 and I'll be damned before I wear loafers!

    Pants are the most difficult. Finding 32-34's is a bitch, a lot of times I rip my jeans at the bottom and patch them to make them longer. It's cheaper than buying each pair of jeans for 60 bucks a pop
    The thing is with online shopping is that they often don't have the right size. Or say if I choose a shirt, I won't be able to try it on. Like there is a store here called Hallensteins and a 2XL sweatshirt's sleeves would come up half my arm (slight exaggeration but you get my point) whereas another 2XL sweatshirt sleeves from a skate shop would go past my hands. Shoes are the easiest piece of clothing to find as I'm only 12-13 US (not sure if it's US or UK ).

    Speaking of clothing, I just came back from going into town with my mum and I managed to find a store that has the right sized sweatshirts and shirts

    Also another problem is how expensive it is here... Was on a school trip in Australia and I went into about 5 stores and only ONE had a shirt that I liked and was the right size... thing was that it was $50 for one shirt Now I just have to face the fact that if I want some decent clothing, ima have to fork out a bit more money...

    Now that I think about it, I guess it would be somewhat harder for taller people.
    Weaklings will stay weak forever. But weakness is not evil, since human beings are weak creatures to begin with. Alone, you feel nothing but insecurity; thatís why we form guilds, thatís why we have friends. We walk together in order to live a strong life. The clumsy ones will walk into more walls than the others, and it may also take them longer to get there. If you believe in tomorrow and put yourself out there, you can naturally obtain your strength. Thatís how you will be able to smile and live strong.
