I Believe in Being a Nerd!

书呆子宣言!

(By Chika)

(千佳)

I believe in being a Nerd.

我觉得当个书呆子挺好。

Yes, I said it, a Nerd! The common misconception about nerds is that we are a four-eyed, suspender-wearing, Urkel -looking type of people.And, that all we do is take Advanced Placement classes, watch the Discovery Channel and carry a pocket calculator. In very few cases, it is true. However, it is a fact that many of us choose to be an undercover nerd. Description: "An undercover nerd is a person that secretly possesses the ability to take the time to study, asks questions after class, does not share their grade unless they failed, and actually surreptitiously kind of sort of, enjoys learning." Many can relate to being an undercover nerd, mainly people that feel that their cliques will not allow them to be open nerds. Whatever the case....

没错,我说的就是——书呆子!人们对书呆子普遍有一种误解,以为我们都是那种身穿背带裤、长得跟(《凡人琐事》中的)厄克尔一样的“四眼田鸡”,并且认为我们整天做的事情就只有上大学预修课、看“探索”频道,还随身揣着个袖珍计算器。极少数书呆子是这个样子没错,但是,事实上我们很多人都选择做隐性书呆子,其特征如下:“隐性书呆子深藏不露地拥有这样的能力——花时间学习、在课后提问、除非不及格否则不把成绩告诉别人,并且私下里确实有那么点儿爱学习。”很多人都符合隐性书呆子的特点,尤其是那些觉得自己的朋友圈不能容忍自己明显是个书呆子的人。不管怎样……

Personally, I really do not care.

就我自己来说,我真的不在乎。

I find myself asking questions all the time, wearing glasses and contacts because I have bad eye sight, taking Advanced Placement classes and tests so the cost of college will not strain my parents, using a calculator because I am not Einstein, studying so I can graduate. Actually I benefit from learning something new each day whether it's in school or in life's little problems.

我发现自己总是在问问题;由于视力不好,我戴着框架眼镜或隐形眼镜;我修读大学预修课、参加各种考试,因为这样才不会让父母为了我的大学学费过度劳累;我用计算器,因为我不是爱因斯坦;我学习,因为这样才能顺利毕业。事实上,每天学习新知识让我受益匪浅,不管那些知识是从学校中还是从生活中的小问题中学到的。

I believe in working hard to achieve a higher education.

我相信通过努力学习才能获得高等教育。

I believe in setting high standards in every job, game and any future endeavor I will come across.

我相信将来我所面临的每份工作、比赛以及未来的一切尝试,我都会以高标准要求自己。

I believe in choosing when it is time to party and time to hit the books.

我相信我会正确抉择何时可参加派对、何时应埋头苦读。

I believe in knowing that each frustrated moment will get me one step closer to my goals.

我相信每个受挫的时刻都会让我离自己的目标更近一步。

I believe that a book will get you further than a basketball unless you are Michael Jordan or Larry Bird .

我相信,除非你是迈克尔·乔丹或者拉里·伯德,否则书籍能比篮球带你走得更远。

I believe in being the first African-American woman to create something that will change the world.

我相信我可以成为创造出会改变世界的事物的首位美国黑人女性。

I believe in being the C.E.O of three major world institutions.

我相信我可以成为三家主要国际机构的首席执行官。

I believe in receiving prestigious awards such as an Engineer of the Year , the Academy Award, the Coretta Scott King Award , a Tony , a Grammy, my face plastered on Time magazine and a Nobel Peace Prize.

我相信我可以获得一些享有盛名的奖项,诸如年度青年女工程师奖、奥斯卡奖、科雷特·斯科特·金图书奖、托尼奖、格莱美奖,让自己的头像印在《时代周刊》杂志上,还有诺贝尔和平奖。

More or less, the only force that can stop me from becoming and accomplishing all of this, is myself.

而唯一能或多或少地阻止我成为以上人物、获得以上成就的力量正是我自己。

And I believe in a quote by B. B. King , "The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you."

我相信音乐家B. B.金的一句名言:“知识的美妙之处在于没有人能把它从你那里夺走。”

This is why I believe in being a nerd.

这就是我愿意做个书呆子的原因。
