绿色字是原文,黄色背景是吸取他人意见后修改的。

College is just around the corner, and you need to know how to spend the last few moments of your “pre-college” days. The possibilities are endless, but you do not want to waste a moment doing something that is not fun or functional.

大学近在眼前,而你需要了解如何度过“准大学生”的最后一段时光。你的选择多种多样,但你不会想把时间浪费在那些没乐趣或没用的事情上。

指导建议

1.Spend time with those closest to you. Chances are, you will be going away to college and spending time with those who mean the most to you will be a rarity. Do the things you have always enjoyed doing, whether that is pizza at your local hangout or a weekend rock climbing. You can also use the time to try something new, something you have always wanted to do, with your family and friends. Don't forget about the most important relationships of your life -- parents, grandparents and siblings. No matter where you go or what you do, they will always be your family, and you should do all you can to make the most of the time you have with them.

多花些时间在那些和你关系亲密的人身上。当你上了大学后,和那些对你意义重大的人相处的机会将变得非常少。你可以继续进行你一直喜欢做的事,不管是待在家里吃披萨还是周末去攀岩。你也可以利用这些时间,与家人朋友一起做些你一直想做但从未做过的事。不要忽略了你人生中最重要的亲人——父母,祖父母还有兄弟姐妹。不管你去了哪里,做了什么,他们永远都是你的家人,所以你应该尽自己的所能,尽量地陪伴他们。


2.Take advantage of some “alone time.” Use this time to ponder your future. Make a few plans for your future. Ask yourself, “What do I want to be when I grow up” and “where do I want to be in 10 years.” Don’t forget to figure out who you are and who you want to be, not just what career path you want to take. Dream of your future life and make it as wonderful as you like. You must have a vision so you have something to make into your reality.

把一些独处的时间利用起来。利用这些时间去思考你的未来。为你的将来做一些打算。问问自己,“当我长大了,我想要的是什么”,“十年后我想住在哪里”。不要忘记想清楚自己是什么样的人,并且想成为什么样的人,而不是仅仅思考自己想要什么样的职业生涯。憧憬一下你的未来生活并努力地把它实现,就像你设想的那般美好。你必须有一个设想,这样你才能把它变成你的现实。

3.Visit the city of the college or university you will be attending. Share this experience with family and friends. Look over the area and familiarize yourself with where things are located. Of course, visit the campus and get a feel for what will be your new home away from home. Make a few contacts with students, staff and faculty of the institution.

游览你就读的大学所在的城市。并和你的家人朋友分享这一经历。了解大学所在的区域,并熟悉附近都分布有什么。当然,更要去参观你的大学校园,去感受一下你的新家,结识一些大学里的学长学姐和教职工。

4.Look for a job or volunteer opportunity. This is a great way to get some practical experience in what may become your career. Keep an open mind when applying. More than likely, you will start at the bottom of the ladder. Think of it as a way to monitor your progress. This will also help you weed out things you are not interested in. It is far better to spend time working or volunteering somewhere and finding out that specific field is not for you as opposed to spending time, money and effort on classes that do not suit you.

寻找一份工作或做志愿者的机会。这是为未来的职业选择积累实际经验的最好方法。在申请时要保持开放的心态。较大的可能是,你将从最基础的工作开始。把它视作是指导你进步的方法。这也可以帮助你挑出你不喜欢的事情。把时间花在工作或志愿服务上进而发现一些特定领域不适合自己,远比把时间、金钱和精力花费在不适合自己的课程上要好得多。

5.Take a summer class or two. This will help you get into the swing of college life. It will also add a few credits to your transcript, making your college graduation day closer than before.

参加一两个暑期班。这能帮助你提前适应大学的生活。它也能帮助你提前得到一些必要的学分,这能帮助你提前毕业。

6.Travel if finances allow. Take in as much of the world or country as you can. See something new. Eat strange and exotic foods. Keep a travel journal so you can remember all your thoughts and feelings, as well as your activities on this trip. It may seem silly at the time, but that journal will become a precious memento in the future.

如果经济条件允许,出去旅游吧。尽你所能地多去一些国家。体会不同的风土人情,品尝独特的、具有异国风味的食物。随身携带一本旅行日记,以便记录下你在这段旅途中萌生的所有想法与感受,以及你的行程安排。也许当时看来有些可笑,但这本旅行日记将会成为未来最珍贵的纪念。

7.Set your goals -- not just academic or professional goals but also personal goals that will help you grow as a person. Plan to meet your newest lifelong friend or the person you will someday want to marry.

制定你的目标——不仅仅是学业或专业目标,还有人生目标,这回帮助你成长为一个人格健全的人。为遇见新的人生至交,或未来人生的另一半,你要做好规划。

8.Practice those things your mom or dad has been doing for you all of your life. Do your own laundry, cook your own meals and start washing the dishes. You will be responsible for those things when you are in college and need to know how they are done.

练习那些,在你的生活中,你的父母一直为你做的事情。你要学会自己洗衣服,自己做饭并开始自己清洗餐具。当你进入大学后,这些事情都要你负责,而你要知道如何做这些事。

Budget your time and your money. Create a schedule for things you will be doing. This will be good practice for when you are juggling classes, work and a social life. Start watching how you spend your money. It always goes much faster than you ever expect. Mom and Dad may be there to help with finances when you do go to college, but it will take more time for them to bail you out.

对你的时间和金钱有个预算。为你将要做的事建立一个日程表。这能帮助你从容地同时应对课程、工作和社会生活。开始关注你的消费习惯。花钱的速度总比预先的打算快得多当你真的上了大学,若你还不能有效地管理你的时间和金钱的话,就必然会让你的父母花费更多的精力供你到毕业
