When I was nine, I saw the movie "Jaws," and thought to myself, "No, thank you."

When I was 14, I was asked to seriously consider a career path.

14岁的时候我被要求严肃的考虑以后的职业生涯。

I said, "I'd like to be a writer."

And they said, "Choose something realistic."

他们说:“说个现实点的工作。”

So I said, "Professional wrestler."

于是我说,“职业摔跤运动员。”

And they said, "Don't be stupid."

And I wasn't the only one.

And I wondered, what made my dreams so easy to dismiss?

Granted, my dreams are shy, because they're Canadian.

My dreams are self-conscious and overly apologetic.

我的梦想们,她们都太难为情、太谦卑了。

They're standing alone at the high school dance, and they've never been kissed.

它们孤零零的站在高中舞会的角落,从未被人欣赏过她们。

See, my dreams got called names too. Silly. Foolish. Impossible.
