2014CET4四级阅读之写论文必须知道II

6) A lot of the work you do will not make it into your dissertation. The first few days in archives, I felt like everything I was unearthing was a gem, and when I sat down to write, it seemed as if it was all gold. But a brutal editing down to the word count has left much of that early material at the wayside.
许多准备工作在论文里用不到。在档案馆的头几天,我觉得发掘出的所有东西都是宝石,坐下来开始写的时候,好像都是金子,但是经过了凶残的编辑,到统计字数的时候发现许多早期材料都留在路牙子上了。

7) You will print like you have never printed before. If you're using a university or library printer, it will start to affect your weekly budget in a big way. If you're printing from your room, "paper jam" will come to be the most dreaded two words in the English language.
打印起来就像以前从来没打印过一样。如果你在学校或图书馆打印,你每周预算会大受影响。如果你在家里打印,“卡纸”会变成英语里最可怕的两个字。

8) Your dissertation will interfere with whatever else you have going on – a social life, sporting commitments, societies, other essay demands. Don't even try and give up biscuits for Lent, they'll basically become their own food group when you're too busy to cook and desperate for sugar.
写论文会干扰到所有其他的事情——社交、运动、社团、别的作业。可别为了斋节放弃饼干,在你没空烧饭四处找糖吃的时候你就知道饼干多重要了。

9) Your time is not your own. Even if you're super-organised, plan your time down to the last hour and don't have a single moment of deadline panic, you'll still find that thoughts of your dissertation will creep up on you when you least expect it. You'll fall asleep thinking about it, dream about it and wake up thinking about. You'll feel guilty when you're not working on it, and mired in self-doubt when you are.
你的时间都不再是你的。即使你把时间规划得超——好,连最后一小时都不放过,从来不为截止日期恐慌,你也会发现,不管你愿不愿意,你总是想着毕业论文,睡着前想着它,做梦梦见它,一睡醒就想到它,不写论文就充满了负罪感,写论文就陷入自我怀疑。

10) Finishing it will be one of the best things you've ever done. It's worth the hard work to know you've completed what's likely to be your biggest, most important, single piece of work. Be proud of it.
码完毕业论文绝对是你做过最嗲的事情。这可能是你最大,最重要,并且独一无二的作品,付出的努力都是值得的,自豪吧。
