Although I did graduate from the school of hard knocks, our mascot was the knockers. I spent a lot of time here growing up. My mom worked at Newcome and I would go there every time I needed to steal something out of her purse. But why am I here today? Clearly not to steal,you're too far away and I'd never get away with it.

但是我确实从历经磨难的生活这所学校毕业了,我们的吉祥物就是磨难和挫折。我在此度过了许多成长岁月。我妈妈在纽科姆工作,每当我需要从她的钱包里偷偷拿些东西的时候,我都会去找她。但今天我为什么来到这里呢?很明显我不是想要偷你们的钱,你们离我太远了,而且我也跑不了。

I'm here because of you. Because I can't think of a more tenacious, more courageous graduating class. I mean, look at you all, wearing your robes. Usually when you're wearing a robe at 10 in the morning, it means you've given up. I'm here because I love New Orleans. I was born and raised here, I spent my formative years here, and like you, while I was living here I only did laundry six times.

我来这儿是因为你们。没有比你们更坚韧更勇敢的毕业生了。我是说,看看你们每一个人都身着学士袍。通常在早上10点还穿着睡袍,说明你们已经放弃人生了。今天我来到这里,因为我热爱纽奥良,我在这里出生,在这里长大,在这里度过了年少岁月。和你们一样,我在这里生活时,只洗过六次衣服。

When I finished school, I was completely lost. And by school, I mean middle school, but I went ahead and finished high school anyway. And I—I really, I had no ambition, I didn't know what I wanted to do. I did everything from—I shucked oysters, I was a hostess, I was a bartender, I was a waitress, I painted houses, I sold vacuum cleaners, I had no idea. And I thought I'd just finally settle in some job, and I would make enough money to pay my rent, maybe have basic cable, maybe not, I didn't really have a plan, my point is that, by the time I was your age, I really thought I knew who I was, but I had no idea.

当我毕业后,我完全迷失了。我指的学校是初中,但是我接着上学,念完了高中。但我当时真的没有什么野心,不知道自己想做什么。我什么都做。我剥过牡蛎,当过迎宾员,做过酒保、服务员,粉刷过房子,卖过吸尘器。我完全不知道自己想做什么。我想随便找个工作稳定下来,只要有足够的钱付房租,可能有一台电视也可能没有。我完全没有计划。我要说的重点是,我像你们这么大的时候,我真的以为我了解自己,但其实并不了解。

Anyway, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life, and the way I ended up on this path was from a very tragic event. I was maybe 19, and my girlfriend at the time was killed in a car accident. And I passed the accident, and I didn't know it was her and I kept going, and I found out shortly after that, it was her.

总之,当时我不知道自己的一生要干什么,最后因为一件十分悲惨的事情,我找到了自己的目标。可能是在19岁时,我的女朋友在一次车祸中身亡。我经过事故现场时不知道是她,就继续走,但不久我就发现,那就是她。
