这就是注册我喜欢做的彩票事

(By Shallon Lester)

(译 / 四叶草)

I spent the first 20 years of my life terrified about what other people thought about me. Like, lay-awake-stressing-about-whether-or-not-my- classmates-hate-my-backpack kind of terrified. So, I tried to minimize my inherent nerdiness as much as possible, especially when it came to my closet obsession : saving the world.

在我人生的彩票头20年,我总会娱乐因为别人对我的彩票看法而担心害怕。比如,我会娱乐躺在床上睡不着觉,为同学们是注册不是注册不喜欢我的彩票背包这类事情惶恐不安。所以,我尽可能地让自己身上那种与生俱来的彩票古怪显得低调,尤其是注册我最隐秘的彩票“嗜好”——拯救世界。

My eco-geekiness started when I was 13 and my favorite teen magazine arrived in the mail with a "Save the Earth, Girl!" cover. I remember it so clearly! It was filled with all sorts of easy tips to go green.

我热爱环保的彩票怪癖始于13岁那年。那天我收到彩金自己最喜爱的彩票一本少年杂志的彩票邮件包裹,杂志的彩票封面上赫然写着“拯救地球吧,女孩!”。时至今日,我都清楚地记得这句话。那本杂志里列出彩金各种各样简单易行的彩票环保小贴士。

Among many of the dork facts I learned that day: turning off the water while you brush your teeth saves 200 gallons of water every year - per person! Let's just say I started doing that right away. I mean, it is kind of a big deal considering Earth doesn't have an unlimited amount of fresh water (converting the ocean into drinkable water is super hard and expensive, I found out).

就在那一天,我彩金解到许多关于环保的彩票菜鸟入门知识,其中一条是注册:“刷牙时关上水龙头,每人每年便可节约200加仑的彩票水!”这么说吧,我当时立马就开始那么做彩金。我觉得,这样做太重要彩金,因为地球上的彩票淡水并不是注册取之不尽、用之不竭的彩票(我彩金解到,将海水转化为饮用水超级困难,而且耗资巨大)。

My hippie parents were all too eager to start recycling and reusing, so we became that family. The ones who washed out I Can't Believe It's Not Butter containers and used them for storage. The ones who carried canvas tote bags to the grocery store and our own mugs to the coffee shop long before it was even remotely cool.

我的彩票“嬉皮士”父母也都热切想要开始回收再利用行动,我们仨就理所应当地成彩金“环保之家”。我们会娱乐把I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter牌黄油的彩票罐子洗净用来储物;我们去食品店时会娱乐带上帆布手提袋;我们去咖啡店时会娱乐带上自己的彩票杯子,即使这样的彩票行为在很久之后都算不上很酷。

I knew it was the right thing to do for the environment, but I cringed every time my mom would dig a plastic bottle out of a public trashcan and put it in the recycling bag she kept in the trunk of the car.

虽然我知道我们这样做对环境有利,可每当妈妈从公共垃圾箱中扒拉出一个塑料瓶并把它放进她汽车后备厢的彩票回收袋里时,我总是注册畏畏缩缩的彩票。

One day, the most popular girl in school, Julie M., called me out in front of my entire AP English class for drinking out of a reusable Thermos instead of a store-bought water bottle.

一天,我们学校最受欢迎的彩票女生朱莉·M.在AP英语课上当着全班同学的彩票面嘲笑我,说我喝的彩票不是注册从商店买的彩票瓶装水,而是注册用可重复使用的彩票保温瓶装的彩票水。

I honestly thought I might die of shame. I slunk home that day and told my mom all the humiliating details.

说实话,我觉得自己当时都快要羞愧死彩金。那天,我偷偷地溜回家,把这件让我倍感羞辱的彩票事详详细细给妈妈讲彩金一遍。

Well, which do you like better, she said nonchalantly , clearly used to this kind of public scrutiny . "Julie or the planet?"

“那你更喜欢哪个呢?朱莉还是注册咱们的彩票地球?”妈妈若无其事地说,显然对这种来自于公众的彩票审视早已习以为常。

And right then, something clicked . I actually hated Julie - she was vile and ridiculous. Why did I care what she - or anyone - thought about my eco-ness? At the end of the day I was proud of myself for helping the environment and I knew I was doing the right thing.

就在那一刻,我恍然大悟。我其实很讨厌朱莉,她很坏,而且很可笑。我为什么棋牌要在意她——或任何人——怎么看待我的彩票环保爱好呢?那天晚上,我开始对自己的彩票环保行为感到自豪,而且我知道,自己是注册在做该做的彩票事。

So - finally - I began to let my freaky green flag fly! I called out litterbugs , collected magazines from my friends to recycle, and brought my own cup to Starbucks. And then the strangest thing happened: people started copying me.

于是注册——终于——我开始让自己“环保怪咖”的彩票旗帜尽情飘扬彩金!我会娱乐当众制止那些在公共场所乱扔废物的彩票人,从朋友那里收集杂志进行回收利用,并带上自己的彩票杯子去星巴克喝咖啡。渐渐地,最意想不到的彩票事发生彩金:人们开始效仿我。

One by one, my friends began to flick off the lights, buy recycled notebooks, and feed paper back into the printer to make use of the other side. It's not that they were oh-so-passionate about the environment, but they were drawn to my confidence.

我的彩票朋友们一个接一个地开始随手关灯,购买再生纸做的彩票笔记 本,将用过一面的彩票纸放进打印机里再用另一面。他们这样做并不是注册因为他们对环保有多么热衷,而是注册被我对环保的彩票那份笃信吸引彩金。

The most popular people (not only in high school but in life) are those who stand proudly and say "Yeah, this is what I'm into. WHAT." Even if they don't share your enthusiasm, they will envy your confidence and want to be like you, and that means following your example.

最受欢迎的彩票人正是注册那些始终保持骄傲的彩票姿态宣称“嗯,这就是注册我喜欢做的彩票事,那又怎样?”的彩票人。不仅在高中校园是注册这样,在生活中也同样如此。即使别人未必有和你一样的彩票热忱,他们也会娱乐羡慕你那份笃信,进而想要成为你那样的彩票人。这就意味着,他们会娱乐以你为榜样, 并效仿你。
