Dear Grandpa,

Happy Birthday!!! I hope you have a great party in China with really good cake and a lot of fun.

I had a really good summer. I wrote you a while back about what I was going to do; well, I did it all and more! During sailing[1], I made a lot of new and interesting friends, who I still keep in touch with. I had fun traveling with Mom to California as well. Before school started, we also visited Key West, Florida. That trip was really great, although it was way too hot. Basically, my summer was wonderful. I made many new friends, I had a lot of great experiences, and I basically had SO MUCH FUN!!!!!

Well, now school has started. I’m glad, I guess. I like seeing all my friends everyday; during summer, it’s hard to keep in touch. Homework is really stressful, however[2].I stay up really late every night in order to finish it. To make matters worse, I’m on Winsor’s Junior Varsity field hockey team[3], so I arrive home pretty late from practice. Field hockey, however, is A LOT of fun; I really enjoy playing everyday. Homework , sports, piano[4], and friends[5]make my life very busy and hecticbut, hey, that’s high school. I love high school. My current school life is so much better than it was last year[6]. I’m looking forward to more moments of fun through this upcoming year[7].

Well, I hope you have a great birthday. I’ll be thinking about you here in America. Enjoy the birthday card I’m sending along with the letter. I made it myself on the computer. (Read the back of the card.) Anyway, I trust that everything in China is going well. Say “hello” to Dad and everybody else for me. I will write soon.

Love,

Linda

亲爱的爷爷:

生日快乐!我希望你在中国能有个很棒的派对,有大蛋糕,充满欢乐。

我暑假过得很开心。我给你写过信告诉你我的计划。我全都完成了,还超额完成了呢!在出航的时候,我交了很多有趣的新朋友,我和他们还保持联系。我和妈妈去加利福尼亚也玩得很开心。开学前我们还去了佛罗里达的基韦斯特。尽管途中太热了,但这次旅行还是太棒了。基本上这个暑假过得很开心。我交了许多新朋友,有了好多很棒的经历,玩得开心极了!

现在学校开学了。我想我很欢喜的。我喜欢每天看到我所有的朋友。在暑假很难保持联系。然而功课真是太繁重了。为了完成功课我每晚都要熬到很晚。更糟糕的是我还是温莎初级大学曲棍球队的,所以我每天训练完后都很晚回家。但曲棍球真是太有趣了,我很喜欢每天打。功课、运动、钢琴和朋友令我的生活很繁忙,但,嘿,这就是高中啊。我喜欢高中。目前的学校生活比去年好多了。接下来的一年里我还期待着更多的乐趣呢。

我希望你的生日能过得开心。我在美国这里会想你的。希望你喜欢我随信寄上的生日贺卡。这是我在电脑上自己做的。(读一下卡的背面。)无论如何,我想在中国一切都会好的。帮我向爸爸和其他人问好。我会很快再写信过来的。

爱你的

琳达

[1] 晅之考出了她的高级航行执照,所以她可以带其它小朋友出航,而且可以在起风的坏天气中出航。(有两次差点翻船。)(这封信的所有注释都是晅之的母亲在原信上添加的说明——整理者。)

[2] 基本上11点睡,早上6点起床。她每天要做三小时左右的功课。每本书有6-7重(一只书包50,我都拎不动)英文在读荷马“The Odyssey”,全本,她说她喜欢(不可想象)。一年要读好几部这种大作。法文有五本书,现在读的第一本是大仲马的“le Comte de Monte-Cristo”,接下来是“Le Petit Prince”全本。生物一本书七磅半,外加实验室。历史是欧洲文明史,用的是大学一年级的教科书。美国重点高中的功课要比中国多得多!!不过晅之很欢喜,初中是“全优”毕业。

[3] 曲棒球和开船(帆船)是晅之的两大爱好。上半年是打球,下半年是航船比赛。打球如有比赛(和其它私立高中比),她要七点左右回来,没有比赛,也要到六点以后,因为要集训。集训是天天跑3英哩,如下雨,就在室内健身房锻炼。她现在的两条腿,结实得像石头。

[4] 钢琴还是每天照旧。现在在弹钢琴协奏曲,弹一遍就要15分钟。一般只能弹5遍,就没有时间了。

[5] 晅之在中学非常“popular”,很多很多朋友,当然也有很多很多“party”。每星期总要出去跳舞,或party一次。有的时候去的地方来回开车要2小时。私立学校轮流开舞会,一个学校开,其它学校都被邀请去。有时一星期有两个舞会,晅之就自己作选择,只去一个,因为没时间。

[6] 同一个学校,只是比去年还要忙,功课还要多,她竟然很欢喜。最近得到期中report,还是全A。她们现在是一年2个学期,每个学期当中还有期中考核,一般是大考每个月,小考每星期。

[7] 她的钢琴老师不喜欢她打球,因为怕把她手打坏。Field hockey很危险的,她几次手打得青肿回来。
