责任!责任!责任!
Responsibilities. Responsibilities. Responsibilities!
那是唯一一个能定义在一个家庭中姐姐的字眼。对于房子,家庭,姐妹以及对于最简单的事情比如说食物的选择,家务碎屑,兄妹的作业或者企划的成千上百的繁琐的责任。
That’s the only single word that can define being the eldest sister in the family. Hundreds of grueling responsibilities over the house, the family, the siblings and even the simplest things like food choices, household chores, homeworks and projects of the younger siblings.
我记得有一次当我父母参加一个在马尼拉的聚会时,他们整晚都没有回家。你都难以想象当妈妈告诉我他们启程时我那糟糕的,可见的表情。他们当天下午离开并保证说第二天上午回来。我完全不知所措。我该怎么熬过单独和弟弟妹妹相处的一天?
I remember one time when my parents attended a certain gathering in Manila and they were off the whole night! You can’t imagine the horror visible in my face when my mother told me the dreadful news of their departure. They left in the afternoon and promised me to come back at the morning of the next day. I was perplexed. How can I survive a day with my younger brother and sister?
那时弟弟5岁,妹妹12岁。那天晚上弟弟为了吃鸡蛋哭了半个小时,但是我做的是米饭和咸牛肉。我也非常想哭,因为我非常累并且他的哭声很招人烦。为了让他停止哭泣,我只好做了鸡蛋。然而不幸的是,鸡蛋过火了。一向被宠爱的弟弟却拒绝吃鸡蛋,并且那天晚上他什么都没有吃。
My brother was 5 years old while my sister was 12 at that time. In the night, my brother cried for half an hour because he wanted to eat eggs, but our only cooked food was rice and corned beef. I wanted to cry also because I felt tired and his cry was so irritating. Just to make him stop crying, I cooked an egg, but unfortunately, it was overcooked. My spoiled brother refused to eat the egg and he didn’t eat anything the whole night.
当我洗碟子时,我在想象父母在享受而我却在遭罪。我是多么可怜啊!当我即将做作业时,妹妹敲门了。她想要我帮她做作业。我告诉她她应该独立完成作业,然而她却说我不是个好姐姐。为了避免尖叫声的烦恼,我只好替她做作业。我做完她的作业在晚上10点,然而我还没有做自己的。
I washed the dishes thinking of my parents having fun while I feel so exhausted. How pathetic I am. When I was about to do my assignment, my sister came knocking on the door of my room. She wanted me to do her homework! I told her that she needed to do her own assignment, but she said that I am not a kind sister. I was shocked so I did her homework out of screaming annoyance. I finished her assignment at 10 in the evening and I haven’t done my very own homework yet.
10点半当我做完作业时却发现弟弟没有睡觉而是在玩玩具。忘记了疲倦和筋疲力尽,我对他大声喊骂。由于我的嘲讽,他又哭了。妹妹生气我对弟弟的那种态度。没有一件事让人省心。
I finally finished it at ten thirty when I discovered my brother playing his game boy instead of sleeping. Out of fatigue and exhaustion, I shouted him stingy words. He cried again because of my sarcasm. My sister was angry at me for my behavior toward my brother. Everything was a disaster.
那晚睡前我偷偷在流泪。我在想“到底怎么了?他们为什么会那样?我简直就是废物一个!”
Silent tears were streaming in my eyes before I slept that night. I was thinking: what went wrong? Why are they like that? I am a total wreck and a failure.
第二天早上我决定做鸡蛋和热狗早餐。因为鸡蛋火候正好,弟弟笑了。天啊,妹妹那天早上心情很好。天啊!一切正常。知道父母回来我们一直说说笑笑,讲故事。太好了!
The next morning, I decided to cook eggs and hotdogs for our breakfast. The eggs were fair – cooked so I received a smile from my brother. Yes! My sister was in the good mood that morning. Another yes! Everything was perfect, we were laughing and story – telling until my parents arrived. Yippee!
我那时才意识到作为一个姐姐需要耐心和恒心。这需要持久的完成所有责任的意志力。是的,那是一个只有有责任的成熟的人才能履行的工作。同时这还可以让在劳累之余感受到毫无条件的幸福。
That was when I realized that being a sister requires patience and persistence. It needs constant willpower to accomplish all of your responsibilities. Yes, it is a complicated job that only a responsible and mature person can perform, but it also provides that person the unconditional feeling of happiness out of tiredness.
