Hello,大家好,还记得”我“在圣诞节后和那位知名教授的考核约定么?三个月都没见太多次面,"‘我”准备好了自己三个月内做过的东西,学到的东西,准备给他做报告,以此说服。可是,就在前几天,“我”改主意了,感到自己看到忙碌又冰冷的实验室其实并不开心,自己也并不真正热爱工科,于是,准备好放弃吧。

能否通关呢?这期节目,一起来看看吧。


 本期一览

It is supposed to be what I wanted all the time- the affirmation of my advisor in a form of RA(Research Assistantship).

这应该是我一直想要——得到导师的认可,拿到助研工资。

How should I look at this ? Is it a punishment for not being determined enough in terms of dream or it is a gift to pay off my hardwork in the past three months?

该怎样去看待现在的结果呢?这是对于追求梦想不够坚定的惩罚?还是对过去三个月拼命努力的奖赏?

It is supposed to be what I wanted all the time- the affirmation of my advisor in a form of RA.


这应该是我一直想要——得到导师的认可,拿到助研工资。

However, after an internal meeting this morning, I came to the professor and told him that I thought I am not suitable in his lab. He asked me what I was interested in- I told him I was interested in literature and language. He told me that I was in his eyes being premature and I should learn more about what our lab is doing. He said that there is a way to combine what I love with what we are doing right now so that I do amazing things. He advised me to work on something in his view marvellous.

然而,实验室开完内部会议后,我单独见了导师,告诉他我认为自己并不适合他的实验室,对做的东西也不那么感兴趣了,想要去追求自己真正喜欢的。

——“你喜欢什么呢?”教授问我。

——“文学和语言。”

——“你这是不成熟的表现。你应该放开心态,多去学习我的实验室正在做的各种项目。在这儿,每个项目都带给工业界新想法,新的发展,前途是不可估量的。”

“而且,放开去想象,你可以把自己喜欢的语言,和实验室的方向结合起来,将来,能做非常棒的事情!”

在和他交谈之际,我的内心在经历很多波动,我表达了自己想要放弃的意愿后,就没有多说什么了。我在想,别人都觉得好的,别人都想要的,就一定是适合我的么?放弃,有时候是件多么潇洒的事啊。

The moment he told me that he will fund me and he thinks I am promising and a very goal-driven girl. I don't know why I almost burst out tears when I said that I may quit. 

——“我要给你助研,开始每月发工资,美国的学费太贵了,学费补助也会为你提供。我能看到你身上的潜力,而且你是个很有目标的女孩。我相信你会成功。“他说。很简短的话,也是我在最近改变主意之前一起期待的肯定答案。

可是,不知道为什么,在我告诉他我可能要放弃自己为之努力的结果时,我感觉到自己失控到快哭了,强忍着眼泪在眼眶里打转。而这种强忍,自然一眼被别人看透。

It is not that I was hurt by something others said, it is that I want to be responsible for every choice I make. I want to do what I really want and do it the best.I know I will if I am determined enought, and that's what differs me from others.However, what if you are not sure what you want? 

想哭,不是因为被别人说的话伤害,不是因为被有的冷漠态度打退,只是,我想对自己做的每个决定负责。

想要去做自己真正想要的,并把它做到最好。我知道只要自己下定决心,我一定可以做到,是这点将实现梦想的人和知难而退的人区别开来。可是,如果你自己都不知道真正想要什么?该怎么办?

Before talking, several people talked in my mind-my mother, my roommates and other people who have affected me every time I tried to make a choice.I decided to follow what I felt at that moment. But finally, I ended up with what my advisor thinks is right for me. 

在自己讲话之前,脑海中回荡着好些人的话——妈妈的,室友的,还有其他每次我尝试做决定是曾经给我影响的人。我决定追寻自己那个时刻感觉最强烈的——拒绝眼前这个尽管为之努力三个月到了眼前却想要推开的邀请。但最终,以听从导师认为所谓最明智的决定,而告终。

At last, there is always someone to guide me to make a decision and that person is not me. Is it a punishment for not being determined enough in terms of dream or it is a gift to pay off my hardwork in the past three months?

最后的最后,总会有人指导我做决定,而那个人,总不是我自己。当初放弃了考翻译硕士申请工科读研如此,现在想要放弃去追求另外一个目标,仍是如此。这是对我追求梦想不够坚定的惩罚?还是对过去三个月拼命努力的奖赏?

下期节目,奉上一期“我”避免已久的感性话题,会是什么呢?欢迎到时光临
