The things we have learned at college

来源:中国日报    2018-05-30 15:39

        1. Holding back unpleasant information        报喜不报忧
        Yesterday you had a bad experience, but you didn't tell anyone about it. Your WeChat Moments only document the positive parts of your life. The same thing happens whenever you call home and speak to your parents, you wouldn't want them to worry about you after all!        昨天你过得很糟,但是你没有对任何人提起过。你的微信朋友圈只记录了生活中阳光的一面。你给家里打电话和父母聊天时,也是这么做的,你根本不希望他们担心你。
        2. Running faster than you thought possible        跑得比自己想象的快
        There's nothing quite like being late for class to make you realize how fast you can run when you need to! We've all been there, rolling out of bed with 10 minutes to spare, getting dressed in five seconds flat, then sprinting across campus. More often than not you'll make it, if a little disheveled and out of breath. Next time you'd better try setting an extra alarm!        没有什么比上课迟到更能让你意识到,必要时你跑得有多快!我们都有过这样的经历,在距离上课还有10分钟时从床上爬起来,5秒钟穿好衣服,然后在校园里飞奔。通常你都能及时赶到,就是有点邋遢和喘不过气。下次你最好试着多设一个闹钟!
        3. Cramming a full semester into one week        用一星期突击一学期的内容
        It's final exam week and you have a whole bunch of tests to study for, not to mention the barrage of term papers that you need to write.        期末考试周到了,你要准备一大堆考试,还有各种学期论文等着写。
        After several sleepless nights, you finally manage to get it all finished. Who knew you had it in you to write several 20-page papers and review several 1000-page books in the span of a few days?        经历了几个不眠之夜后,你终于把一切都搞定了。鬼知道你怎么能在几天时间里写完若干篇20页的论文,并且看完了若干本1000页厚的书。
        4. Making up excuses        找借口
        You can't be bothered to go to class, but how can you skip and not get in trouble? There's only one thing for it, you'll have to come up with an excuse. You try your best to make it realistic and just hope the professor believes you.        你不想去上课,但怎么才能安全逃课呢?答案只有一个,你要编好借口。你用尽浑身解数让这个借口看起来是真的,并祈祷教授相信你。
        Other times, you squint at the board and pretend you've forgotten your glasses. The professor won't call on you if you can't read any of the questions!        其他时候,你眯着眼睛假装忘戴眼镜。如果你看不清题目,教授是不会提问你的!
        5. Overspending on things you don't need        在不需要的东西上乱花钱
        It's your first time managing your own finances, so of course you're going to mess it up. Never mind if the object of your desire costs half your monthly allowance, you can just live on instant noodles for the rest of the month! Or if worst comes to worst, there's always your parents to fall back on.        上大学后第一次自己管钱,把持不住自己是正常的。不要紧,如果你想要的东西花费了你每月一半的零用钱,那么你就可以在这个月剩下的时间里吃方便面了。万一出现最坏的情况,你还可以求助父母。
        6. Mastering the art of saving space        学会节省空间
        Your dormitory might only have a few square meters of floor space, but it has to house you and your roommates, as well as all your belongings. You'll soon learn to maximize its potential by installing shelving units and under-bed storage, as well as implementing other space-saving ideas. Either that, or you'll just keep everything in a pile — we're sure you'll get used to the mess eventually!        你的宿舍占地面积可能只有几平方米,但是你要带着行李,和室友一同住在里面。你很快就能学会通过安装书架、床下储物还有其他节省空间的点子来最大化利用宿舍空间。要么,你就会把所有东西堆在一起,相信你最终会习惯这混乱的。
        7. Learning how to apply make-up        学会化妆
        Going from high school to college is like undergoing a metamorphosis. Even the ugliest duckling can become a beautiful swan. Perhaps it's because you're older, and a little more mature. Or maybe it's just your newfound skills applying make-up.        从高中到大学就像经历了一次蜕变。即使丑小鸭也能变成美丽的天鹅。这可能是因为你年纪更大更成熟了些,也可能只是因为你新学会的化妆技巧。
        8. Working together in a group        团队合作
        At high school it was easy to study alone and be single-minded in your pursuit of good grades in the college entrance examination. But after entering the college, you'll find group work is much more popular. Cooperation and communication are essential. Never be a black sheep!        高中时,我们都是自己一个人学习,一门心思想在高考中取得好成绩。但是进入大学后,你会发现团队合作更受欢迎。合作和沟通是必不可少的。不要做害群之马!
        9. Using social media to its full potential        充分利用社交媒体
        You've lost something, or need some information, like a teacher's phone number or a recommendation for a nice restaurant. How better to find what you seek than using social media? Just post your question, add a hashtag and someone's sure to try and help.        你丢失了某样东西,或者需要一些信息,比如老师的电话号码或推荐一家好餐馆。借助社交媒体是满足这些需求的最好办法。你只需要带上话题发布你的问题,就一定会有人试着提供帮助。
        10. Learning to multitask        学会同时处理多项任务
        The further you advance through college, the fuller your to-do list becomes. Studying, internships, preparing for postgraduate entrance exams — It all piles up and you have to learn to deal with it, whether you like it or not!        随着年纪的增长,你的执行事项表会越来越满。学习、实习、准备考研,所有事情都赶在一起,而不管你喜不喜欢都需要学会处理。
        After college, all of you must learn how to integrate into society. Without the shelter of our teachers and parents, you must handle all the challenges by yourselves, which makes college the perfect time to make mistakes and learn good habits. Use the time wisely, get to know yourself, and be the best version of you that you can be!        大学毕业后,所有人都必须学会如何融入社会。没有老师和父母的庇护,你必须自己处理所有挑战,因此,大学是允许犯错和培养好习惯的最佳时机。合理利用时间,认清自己,尽全力做到最好吧!
