So like, my dad is 5'4. My mom is 5'0~5'1, and I'm 5'8. And I realize "holy ****'" I could have been a midget, but I wasn't. I'm also above average "down there".
I now tower most of my family, and even though I'm still not tall, I'm still a suitable height.
I'm also naturally confident. I don't know if that's just embedded in my genes or not, but people have told me I'm charismatic, and I always had this trait.
I was always a hard worker, and IMO able to learn stuff easily. This helped me mold my intelligence and help me gain knowledge much faster than others.
And then my personality attracts people all over, and with me being a natural leader, people go to me for advice, and always want to be around me. I don't think I have not been invited to a party in the past 1.5 years every weekend.
And with all that, I just sit back and go "Woah", I got lucky.

Awesome/lucky genes you have?
06-03-2012 04:03 PM #2
I would like to think that my metabolism is a lucky trait.
Other than that, I dunno..."I've always felt that Chevrolet made
Camaro rear ends especially awesome,
so that Mustangs will always have something
nice to look at"

Tall at 6'1", well endowed, fast gainer for weight lifting but I don't have the willpower to do it, coordinated, immune to poison ivy.
Nature gave me shitty eyes though. None of that is gonna matter once I go blind.

My height and my boobs are spectacular...
Also my ability to be amazing at anything without really trying granted that awesome gene seems to be a waste now that I'm a lazy bum who has no drive.

Personality wise- I'm charismatic, blunt, and stubborn (like most of my fam.).
Physically/mentally- I'm tall and blue eyed, I'm smart, good butt, naturally straight teeth

Physically: I am tall and have super curly hair (sometimes a plus), and my nose is a good size.
Mentally: I think I have a good sense of humor and i'm one of the sharper tools in the shed.

I suppose I should feel lucky that I have pretty fast metabolism like my mom...we're both pretty skinny and are on the lower end of what a normal BMI should be (around the 18-19ish range). Neither of us has ever had any issues with weight. I think it must be genetic, because my maternal grandmother is also very thin.
Whereas my dad's side of the family seems to have problems with weight, including my dad."Even though you may want to move foward in life, you may have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life. What is it you would let go of today?"

I have naturally straight teeth, a good sense of humor, and my eyesight is great."I can't tell if she's mentally challenged or foreign..."

Tall, blue eyes, thick hair (which going by my male relatives shouldn't fall out with age), broad shoulders, fast metabolism and other factors that dispose me toward thinness, high intelligence, good eyesight, minimal family history of cancer or heart disease, etc.
If it wasn't for the significant family history of mental illness I could probably make a killing at the sperm bank.Life really does get better, whether you're bullied or not

My eye color. From my mom. Thattttts about it

My ability to remember things. It's really easy for me to retain stuff so I don't ever really have to study.
My cat eyes from my dad
My big butt from my mom
When I gain weight or lose weight it all pretty much distributes evenly so it's not a big deal to me.
And call me superficial but I'm really happy that my toes are like perfect. It really grosses me out when people's 2nd toe is longer than the first toe.

really good health.

I look like my dad's side, which is good because my mom's side has more prominent, rough features. I have my mom's lovely hair color, though, which is why I assume everyone thinks we look so much alike (odd, because when my dad was alive, everyone said I look exactly like him - you can clearly see I look more like him if you were to see a picture).
I'm pretty intelligent; both of my parents and brother are of average intelligence.
My mom and brother have horrible allergies; I don't.
They are also very allergic to poison ivy; I could roll in it for hours and not get it.
I'm more like my dad personality-wise. He was laid-back, but could still be the life of the party. My mom, on the other hand, was a wallflower.
I'm short, which I like. I'm 5'4", my mom is 5'6", my dad was 5'10", and my brother is 5'11". Mostly everyone in my extended family is at least 5'8" for women and 6' for men.
