「孩子的心聲:不要把我貼上『聰明』的標籤」- Labeled the Smart Kid in Class Made School Life Difficult


框選或點兩下字幕可以直接查字典喔!

I'm 13, in the eighth grade. And starting around fourth or fifth grade when the work started getting harder—quote, unquote—was when I was labeled a smart kid. I guess meaning I was better and faster at finishing work? And let's just say I hate it.
我 13 歲,就讀八年級。差不多在三、四年級的時候,大家都說課業開始變得越來越難,而我在那時被貼上了聰明小孩的標籤。我猜那是指我比較厲害、可以比較快完成作業?這樣說好了,我討厭這個頭銜。

Number one: When you're labeled a smart kid, you're expected to do the things no one else wants to do. For example, if the teacher says, "Oh, who's a good reader?" "Oh, who can answer this problem?" and no one wanting to do it, your name is probably gonna get called. And not by teachers, just the students. "Oh, make Jade do it." "Oh, make this person do it." "Oh, make that person do that." "Oh, this person can do it." Like, if I don't wanna do it, I don't wanna do it, so don't make me do it.
第一點:當你被貼上聰明小孩的標籤,大家就期望你要做其他人不想做的事情。舉例來說,如果老師說:「噢,誰很會唸課文?」、「噢,誰可以回答這個問題?」,而沒人想回答,你的名字就很有可能被叫到。不是被老師叫到喔,是只有同學叫你。「噢,讓 Jade 做吧。」、「噢,讓這個人做。」、「噢,讓那個人做那題。」、「噢,這個人可以回答。」我是說,如果我不想做這題,我就是不想做,所以不要逼我嘛。

Number two: Cheating
第二點:作弊

Now, I'm not...no angel, goddess, but I think it's really annoying when I'm trying to finish my work, and someone is, like, "Hey, hey, what's...what's the answers? What are we doing?" "Hey, I...I need to cheat. I need to cheat. What..." Like, dude, chill out. I mean we have a due date. It's not like you have to finish it right at that second, so calm down.
我不是...我並非什麼天使、還是女神,但我覺得這種狀況很煩,就是當我試著要完成我的作業,而有人一直在說:「嘿、嘿,答案是什麼?我們在幹嘛?」、「嘿,我...我需要作弊一下。我需要作弊。什麼...」拜託,老兄,不要緊張好嗎。我的意思是我們有作業期限。並不是要你當下就要完成作業,所以冷靜一點吧。

Number three: Expectation
第三點:期望

Now, an expectation as a smart kid is pretty tricky because you're expected to learn and know everything. For example, just about a week ago, I was working with my partner, and we had to do stations. So, basically, once you finish, like, one station, you move on to the next station. And me and my partner, we were on station three. And one of the boys were on, like, station five or something, so they were ahead of us. And one of the boys were, like, "Wow, I thought she was smarter than that." Bruh. Seriously? What the hell is that supposed to mean: You thought I was smarter than that? What is "that?" And what makes you think I am a genius, okay?
寄予在聰明小孩身上的期望滿難應付的,因為大家都預期你要學會且知道所有事情。舉例來說,就在大概一星期以前,我跟我的同伴一組,我們要完成作業關卡。基本上就是你完成一個關卡的指示之後,你就繼續往下到下一個關卡。我跟我的同伴那時候在第三個關卡。男生裡有一個人在,應該是,第五關還是哪裡,所以他們進度比我們快。其中一個男生就說:「哇,我以為她程度不只是那樣。」呃。你跟我開玩笑嗎?那是什麼意思:你覺得我程度不只是那樣?「那樣」是怎樣?又是哪個地方讓你覺得我是一個天才,請問?

And number four: Born a baby genius
第四點:一出生就是天才。

I don't like it when people think that just because I'm smart, I don't work hard. And I just hate it when people are, like, "You're smart, so you obviously would get a hundred percent." People act like I don't work hard for things, that I don't try to strive for straight As. Like, do you know how much pressure I put on myself? I put more pressure on myself than my parents do. Juh. Bruh.
我不喜歡有人覺得我很聰明,我就不努力。我就是很討厭人們說:「妳很聰明,所以妳一定可以拿一百分。」人們表現得好像我不用為事情付出努力,我也不用為了成績單上全部的 A 用功。我是說,你知道我給自己多少壓力嗎?我給自己的壓力比我父母給我的壓力還要大欸。嘖。懂不懂。

So, when you label someone as a smart kid, just remember they are trying their hardest, too. So, just remember that.
當你把某人貼上聰明小孩的標籤的時候,只要記得他們也在盡他們最大的努力就好。只要記得那一點就好。
