I'm thinking about studying abroad to south korea next year but have some concerns that I need help with. They may sound a little shallow, but they're genuine concerns. Does anybody know how tall they are? I know that asians in general aren't that tall. But you have chinese who tend to be shorter statured and then japanese who tend to be nice and tall, but where do south korean's fit in? I'm tall already, and want to fit in. It'd be hard buying clothes there if they're only as tall as the chinese. Any infor you can give me on south koreans asap would be greatly appreciated!!!

Hello, I'm Ryu, I'm new..And I'm in need of a bit of help..
I haven't self harmed in quite a few months now, and I'm really happy with myself..
But.. [this will sound really stupid] I broke my arm when I was pretty young, and took alot of damage to my nerves, so my arm feels slightly more numb than the rest of my body. So, when I feel this numbness, I want to get rid of it, by cutting it, even just a tiny nick would be enough, but then i'd get carried away and fall into a trap, an addiction of sorts with the blade.
So, I need some help, I really dont want to cut, I really, really dont..
Do any of you have any ideas on how I can just..feel something, without harming myself?
Sorry if any of the above sounds stupid..Thanks.
