CHAPTER 6: I love getting As

You know me: I wanted to be the best – at everything, and studying was
no exception. That’s just who I am.

在任何事情上我都想做到最好,学习也不例外。我就是这样的人。

What do you remember when you hear the word „school“? The first thing
that comes to my mind is routine, because at our school, it was always
the same. Mom would wake us up before seven o’clock, sent us to brush
our teeth and then we had breakfast. There was always a slice of bread
for each of us already on the table; with cheese, butter, jam, or
radishes. I don’t understand how mom could manage all this, since our
dad left for work one hour earlier.

当你听到“学校”这个词时能回想起什么?我首先想到的是循规踏距,因为上学的时光,每天都是重复性的。妈妈会在七点前叫醒我们,让我们刷牙,然后我们吃早餐。桌上总是摆着我们每人一片面包,里面有奶酪、黄油、果酱或萝卜。我不明白妈妈怎么能应付这一切,因为爸爸一小时前就动身去上班了。

But we just grabbed our snacks and run to school.

我们拿着零食跑去学校。

I used to sit in the back row at school, that was my spot. When I close
my eyes and go back in time, I still see the blackboard in the distance,
covered in white chalk writing, and the teacher pacing measuredly and
asking us: „Who can tell me what animal I am describing? It lives on
land, well, on ice, really. When it walks, it sways and waddles in a
very funny way. It’s black and white and has a little beak. It’s
actually a bird, but its wings are small and underdeveloped. It can’t
fly, but it can swim beautifully.“

上学的时候我经常坐在后排。当我闭上眼睛回顾过去,我大脑中仍然能够浮现出写满白色粉笔字的黑板的景象,老师边走边问我们:“谁能回答我说的是什么动物?”它很有趣的在冰面上摇摆着行走。它是黑白相间的,有一个小嘴。它实际上是一只鸟,但是它的翅膀很小而且不发达。它不会飞,但它能漂亮的游。”

A girl in the first row shot up her hand, signaling that she knew the
answer. „A genpuin! A genpuin!“

第一排的一个女孩举起手来,示意她知道答案。“鹅企!鹅企!(捷克文企鹅tučňák,被误读成čutňák)

Even today when I see a penguin, I remember Jitka, my classmate from
first grade.

即使今天我看到企鹅,我仍然记得吉特卡,我一年级的同学。

We changed schools for second grade. This school was called „U Chanosu“
for the factory that stood nearby. Once again I sat in the back row so
that I knew what was going on in the classroom and nobody could bother
me. You cannot hide in the front, but you can in the back.

二年级时我们转学了。这所学校因为附近的工厂被称为“乌恰努苏”。我又一次坐在后排,这样全班就被我尽收眼底而不被打扰,前面容不下那你就去后面。

I don’t think I was stressed at school. Months passed. I was a good
student, straight As, only an occasional B. I cared about getting good
grades, no doubt about that. A few years later we even tried to outdo
each other with my friend Marek, competing to see who would get more As.
Marek was also a goalkeeper and a great student. We egged each other on:
How many As in a row can you get in the record book before you get a
different grade?

我觉得我在学校没有压力。几个月过去了。我是一个好学生,一直是A,偶尔得B。毫无疑问,我关心的是取得好成绩。几年后,我们甚至试着和我的朋友马雷克竞争,看谁会得到更多的A。马雷克也是一名守门员和一名优秀的学生。我们互相较劲:在你的记分册上能够连续得到多少个A?

Five. Ten. Fifteen. Eighteen. And then I got a B and felt sorry that my
A streak was interrupted. Not mentioning Cs, I was always furious when I
got one. Even getting top grades was a motivation for me, a challenge
and a competition.

五。十。十五。十八。然后我得了B,很遗憾我连续得A的成绩被打断了。不想提及C,因为我每次得到一个C都会十分生气。获得满分是我的动力、挑战和竞争。

And you know me: I wanted to be the best – at everything, and studying
was no exception. That’s just who I am.

众所周知:我想在每件事情上都成为最出色的,学习也不例外。我就是这样。
