      Do keep your high school friends, and stay connected to them, but do not use them as substitutes for college friendship, and do not spend too much time with them, because that would eat into your time to make new friends.

      保留高中朋友在你心中的位置,并与她们保持联系。但是不要把她们当作大学友情的替代品。也不要花费太多时间在她们身上,因为那会占用你结交新朋友的时间。


  Start planning for your summers early – what would you like to do? Where would you like to live? What would you like to learn? What have you learned in college that might change your mind? I think your plan of studying fashion is good, and you should decide where you want to be, and get into the right courses. We of course hope you come back to Beijing, but you should go where you think is best for you.

      尽早开始规划你的暑假——你想干什么?你想去哪里生活?你想学什么?你在大学里学到的知识有可能改变你的思想吗?我认为你学习时尚的计划很好,你应该决定你想去的地方,并参加适合的课程。我们当然希望你能回来北京,但是你应该去那些你认为最适合自己的地方。


Whether it is summer-planning, or coursework planning, or picking a major, or managing your time, you should take control of your life. In the past, I have helped you quite a bit, whether it is in college application, designing your extracurricular activities, or picking the initial coursework. I will always be there for you, but the time has come for you to be in the driver's seat – this is your life, and you need to be in control. I will always remember the exhilarating feeling in my life – that I got to decide to skip kindergarten, that I got to decide to change to computer science major, that I got to decide to leave academia for Apple, that I got to decide to go to China, that I got to decide to go to Google, and most recently, that I got to decide to start my own business. Being able to decide means you get to live the life that you want to. Life is too short to live the life others do or others want you. Being in control feels great. Try it, and you'll love it!

无论是暑假规划,作业计划,选择专业,还是管理你的时间,你都应该掌控你的生活。过去,在大学申请、安排你的课余活动、选择初始的课程方面,我都常常给予你帮助。我将永远在你身边,但是你坐在驾驶座上的时刻总会到来——这是你自己的生活,你需要控制它。我总是回忆起在我生命中那种令人兴奋的感觉——我决定跳过幼儿园直接读小学,决定转变电脑科学的专业,决定为了苹果公司而离开学术界,决定前往中国,决定去谷歌工作。最近我决定开创自己的公司。能够作出决定意味着你有机会过上你渴望的生活。生命是如此的短暂以致于你不能为了别人而活。掌控一切的感觉很棒。尝试一下吧,并且你会爱上它。
