I dreamed of being a jockey. I think I finally gave up on the notion when I was about 11 - which, oddly enough was around the time I started taking riding lessons. I think I realized that having been the tall kid in class most of my life, I wasn't magically going to turn out short. The funny part is, I'm 5'3". If that was still what I wanted to do, my size wouldn't prohibit me from doing so.
