00:00:31,072 --> 00:00:33,032
When I look back on it,

2
00:00:33,074 --> 00:00:36,285
I still can't make sense
of how a normal kid like me

3
00:00:36,327 --> 00:00:39,121
ever wound up meeting
Buck Howard.

4
00:00:39,164 --> 00:00:40,956
When I was five years old,

5
00:00:40,999 --> 00:00:42,374
my dad asked me what
I wanted to be

6
00:00:42,417 --> 00:00:44,585
when I grew up.

7
00:00:44,627 --> 00:00:47,963
I said I wanted to drive
a steamroller and he said, "No,

8
00:00:48,006 --> 00:00:49,590
you want to be a lawyer."

9
00:00:49,632 --> 00:00:52,217
I said astronaut.
He said lawyer.

10
00:00:52,260 --> 00:00:54,511
I said policeman.
He said lawyer.

11
00:00:54,554 --> 00:00:57,681
So we compromised... on lawyer,

12
00:00:57,724 --> 00:00:59,224
which is how, 20 years later,

13
00:00:59,267 --> 00:01:01,393
I ended up in law school.

14
00:01:01,436 --> 00:01:03,395
And even though
this was my father's dream,

15
00:01:03,438 --> 00:01:04,897
for the first couple of years

16
00:01:04,939 --> 00:01:06,440
I bought into the whole thing,

17
00:01:08,026 --> 00:01:09,818
until one day.

18
00:01:09,861 --> 00:01:13,155
I finished an exam early
and I just sat there thinking,

19
00:01:13,198 --> 00:01:16,950
thinking that somewhere
there must be somebody

20
00:01:16,993 --> 00:01:19,620
whose dream it is to be a lawyer,

21
00:01:19,662 --> 00:01:21,830
but after more than
two years in law school,

22
00:01:21,873 --> 00:01:24,166
I hadn't met a single one.

23
00:01:24,209 --> 00:01:27,461
And suddenly it occurred to me...

24
00:01:27,504 --> 00:01:29,046
I'm not happy.

25
00:01:29,089 --> 00:01:30,839
I gotta get out of here.

26
00:01:30,882 --> 00:01:32,508
So this moment right here

27
00:01:32,550 --> 00:01:34,551
became my last chance
to stop everything,

28
00:01:34,594 --> 00:01:36,386
hit pause,

29
00:01:36,429 --> 00:01:38,388
and find a dream
before it was too late.

30
00:01:38,431 --> 00:01:42,392
Late or not, it felt fantastic.

31
00:01:42,435 --> 00:01:45,479
Of course, I hadn't told
my father any of this,

32
00:01:45,522 --> 00:01:47,189
but I was pretty sure
that he'd understand.

33
00:01:47,232 --> 00:01:49,608
I just had to present my case.

34
00:01:49,651 --> 00:01:53,070
Hey, Dad. Well, school's tough.

35
00:01:53,113 --> 00:01:57,282
You know,
Contracts is really hard.

36
00:01:57,325 --> 00:02:00,702
See? I would have been
a terrible lawyer.

37
00:02:00,745 --> 00:02:02,371
The thrilling thing, though,

38
00:02:02,413 --> 00:02:05,040
is that now all I had were options.

39
00:02:05,083 --> 00:02:06,708
I could do anything I wanted.

40
00:02:06,751 --> 00:02:09,378
You name it,
I thought of being it.

41
00:02:09,420 --> 00:02:11,421
I could be a private investigator,

42
00:02:11,464 --> 00:02:13,507
a test driver for NASCAR,

43
00:02:13,550 --> 00:02:16,051
or a talk show host.

44
00:02:16,094 --> 00:02:18,345
How do you get
that job, anyway?

45
00:02:18,388 --> 00:02:21,098
The truth, though,
is that I did have an idea

46
00:02:21,141 --> 00:02:23,350
in the back of my head.

47
00:02:23,393 --> 00:02:26,728
I had always had this secret dream
of becoming a writer.

48
00:02:26,771 --> 00:02:29,398
And whil
