Happy Graduation, Seniors! Congratulations! What’s next? Below is some sociologically-inspired, out-of-the-box advice on work, love, family, friendship, and the meaning of life. For new grads from the two of us!

恭喜毕业,毕业生们。祝贺你们。接下来呢?接下来就是我们两给你们这些刚进入社会的人的一些建议,这些建议包括工作,爱情,家庭,友情,还有生活的意义。

1. Don’t Worry About Making Your Dreams Come True

不要担心你的梦想是否能实现。

College graduates are often told: “follow your passion,” do “what you love,” what you were “meant to do,” or “make your dreams come true.” Two-thirds think they’re going find a job that allows them to change the world, half within five years. Yikes.

大学毕业生经常被告知:要跟随激情。去做你所爱的。以及你打算去做的,或者实现你的梦想,三分之二的毕业生认为他们在五年之内要找一份能够改变这个世界的工作。我的天啊。

This sets young people up to fail. The truth is that the vast majority of us will not be employed in a job that is both our lifelong passion and a world-changer; that’s just not the way our global economy is. So it’s ok to set your sights just a tad below occupational ecstasy. Just find a job that you like. Use that job to help you have a full life with lots of good things and pleasure and helping others and stuff. A great life is pretty good, even if it’s not perfect.

这类年轻人是注定要失败的。事实是这样的,大部分的我们都不会有一份一生都充满激情以及改变世界的工作,这不是世界经济运行的方式,因此,我们可以将我们的职业目标放低一点。找一份我们喜欢的工作,用这样一份工作帮助你有一个充实的生活,充满着好的事情,快乐,和助人为乐。一个美好的生活是相当好的,尽管他不完美。


2. Make Friends


Americans put a lot of emphasis on finding Mr. or Ms. Right and getting married. We think this will bring us happiness. In fact, however, both psychological well-being and health are more strongly related to friendship. If you have good friends, you’ll be less likely to get the common cold, less likely to die from cancer, recover better from the loss of a spouse, and keep your mental acuity as you age.


You’ll also feel more capable of facing life’s challenges, be less likely to feed depressed, and be happier in old age. Having happy friends increases your chance of being happy as much as an extra $145,500 a year does. So, make friends!

结交朋友

美国人特别强调找一个白马王子或者真命女神来结婚,我们这样会带给我们幸福,事实,心理和身体的健康与友谊有很大的联系。如果你有一些很好的朋友,你可能得感冒和死于癌症的可能性要小一些,而且更容易从丧偶中恢复过来,以及使你能随着年龄的增长保持敏锐。

你在面临生活的挑战时也会更加的坚强,不太容易觉得沮丧,在年老的时候也会更幸福。有一群开心的朋友可以增加你变得幸福的机会,相当于一年多赚145500美元才能得到的,所以,去交朋友吧。。。
