  Lessons are not limited to ouracademicstudies. We are learning from life constantly, as long as we recognise and accept those lessons.

  课堂并不局限于校园学习。只要我们留意并吸收,总能不断从生活课堂中学到东西。

  Learning shouldn’t stop once you graduate from school. Graduating from college doesn’t mean you can no longer be a student. Life offers more lessons than school ever could. As an individual, you must constantly seek for more ways to grow. To be stagnant should never be an option for someone who has so much potential. There are always new things to learn and adventures left to be discovered.

  毕业后不该停止学习。大学毕业并不意味着你不再是学生。生活的课堂要远比学校课堂丰富得多。作为独立个体,你必须不断想方设法寻求成长。停滞不前绝不是拥有无限潜能的人该走的路。生活中,可学习的新技能很多,有待探求的冒险也很多。

  When you choose to be a student of life, you open yourself to limitless opportunities.

  当你选择做生活的学徒时,你便给自己创造了无限机遇。

  1. Explore the world

  探索世界

  Don’t limit yourself to your hometown or to the city you got your first job. Go beyond the place you consider home, because home can be many places. It doesn’t have to be just one town or one apartment complex. Backpacking may not be for everyone, but it’s not the only way you can see the world. Travelling doesn’t just have to be going overseas but also dropping by many states. Culture exists not just in a country but even in small communities.

  不要把自己困在家乡或第一次工作的城市。跨越那个你视为家的地方,因为家无处不在。家不只是一个镇子或一幢公寓。背包游或许并不适合所有人,但它也不是你看世界的唯一方式呵。旅行并一定非得周游海外,在国内体验也行。文化不只存在于某个国度,也存在于小小的社区之中。

  2. Acquire new life skills

  掌握新的生活技能

  Maybe it’s time that you finally learn how to fix a broken faucet or even fix the faulty light in your bathroom. You can finally cross out your bucket list items that have been there forever. Learn how to drive a car or ride a bike. There are definitely things you don’t know how to do, and you have a lifetime ahead of you to learn. It’s never too late to start learning something new.

  或许现在你该学会怎么修理坏掉的水龙头或者是浴室的坏灯泡了。你可以完成清单上存在已久的任务。学会骑自行车或开车。肯定有很多事情是你不知道的,而你可以用一辈子去琢磨。任何时候学习新事物都不晚。

  3. Widen your circle

  扩大交际圈子

  For some individuals, to grow older means to keep your circle of friends down to a few, but that shouldn’t stop you from meeting new people. Widen your circle by allowing people into your life and letting them get to know you. When you meet so many people and try to learn about them, you don’t merely understand the person but their circumstances as well. Widening your circle to people from all walks of life gives you a bigger and betterperspectiveof the world. It doesn’t mean you have to treat every stranger as a potential friend, but there’s nothing wrong with that, too.

  对有些人而言,越长大至交就越少,但你不必因此而停止认识新朋友。接纳他人进入你的生活,让他们了解你,从而扩大交际圈子。当你认识和了解的人越多,你对他们本人以及他们的背景也就知道得越多。结交各行各业朋友能开阔你的眼界。当然,这不是要求你把每个陌生人都当作潜在朋友,不过这么做也无可厚非。

  4. Support a cause

  支持一项事业

  Why not try to turn your passion for animals into a good cause? Learning more about animal welfare can tell you whichcosmeticbrands support testing on animals. Making your love for books into an advocacy can tell you that many areas lack a library and they need your support. You don’t have to force yourself to support something you don’t believe in. You only need to look at your interests and see which ones need you take some drastic actions.

为什么不把你对动物的喜爱发展成一项事业呢?了解动物福利能让你知道什么化妆品牌支持动物试验。将你对书籍的热爱加以推广,你会知道很多地方没有图书馆,而你恰好能帮得上忙。你不一定要强迫自己支持自己不相信的事情,而只需关注自己感兴趣的,然后看看哪些需要你大力投入。
