我叫王小明。我在公司做电脑方面的工作。我去年大学毕业。因为年轻人找工作很难,所以我一直担心找不到工作。 Wǒ jiào Wáng Xiǎomíng. Wǒ zài gōngsī zuò diànnǎo fāngmiàn de gōngzuò. Wǒ qùnián dàxué bìyè. Yīnwèi niánqīngrén zhǎo gōngzuò hěn nán, suǒyǐ wǒ yìzhí dānxīn zhǎo bú dào gōngzuò. My name is Wang Xiaoming. I do computer work in a company. I graduated from university last year. Because it’s very difficult for young people to find a job, I was worried the whole time that I wouldn’t be able to get a job.
当我找到工作的时候我很高兴。但是说实话,我不太喜欢这个工作,因为它太累了, 我每天都很忙。 Dāng wǒ zhǎodào gōngzuò de shíhou wǒ hěn gāoxìng. Dànshì shuō shíhuà, wǒ bú tài xǐhuān zhège gōngzuò, yīnwèi tā tài lèi le, wǒ měi tiān dōu hěn máng. When I found a job I was really happy. Although to be honest, I don’t really like this job, because it’s too tiring, and I’m busy everyday.
我早上需要早起,因为公司离我家很远。我大概6点40到公交站等车。公交车上人很多,很拥挤。到公司大概需要一个小时,堵车的话就不好说了。 Wǒ zǎoshang xūyào zǎoqǐ, yīnwèi gōngsī lí wǒ jiā hěn yuǎn. Wǒ dàgài liù diǎn sìshí dào gōngjiāozhàn děng chē. Gōngjiāochē shang rén hěn duō, hěn yōngjǐ. Dào gōngsī dàgài xūyào yí gè xiǎoshí, dǔchē dehuà jiù bù hǎo shuō le. I have to get up early in the morning, as the company is far from my home. I get to the bus stop at about 6:40. There are so many people on the bus, it’s really crowded. It takes about an hour to get to the office, but if there’s a traffic jam then it’s hard to say.
我们八点开始上班。我每天要对着电脑工作。 Wǒmen bā diǎn kāishǐ shàngbān. Wǒ měitiān yào duìzhe diànnǎo gōngzuò. We start work at 8 o’clock. I spend every day facing the computer.
中午可以休息一个小时。吃完午饭之后我一般会睡几分钟。因为没有床,所以我只能坐着睡。 Zhōngwǔ kěyǐ xiūxi yí gè xiǎoshí. Chīwán wǔfàn zhīhòu wǒ yìbān huì shuì jǐ fēnzhōng. Yīnwèi méiyǒu chuáng, suǒyǐ wǒ zhǐ néng zuòzhe shuì. At noon we can have an hour long break. After eating lunch I usually have a quick nap for a few minutes. Since there is no bed, I just have to sleep while sitting.
我们本来应该五点下班, 但是经常加班。一般我们加班的时间不是很长,但是有时候要加班 到很晚,比如十点。 Wǒmen běnlái yīnggāi wǔ diǎn xiàbān, dànshì jīngcháng jiābān. Yìbān wǒmen jiābān de shíjiān bú shì hěn cháng, dànshì yǒu shíhou yào jiābān dào hěn wǎn, bǐrú shí diǎn. We’re supposed to finish work at 5, but we often have to work overtime. Usually the overtime we do isn’t very long, but sometimes we have to work overtime until late, for example 10 o’clock.
我觉得工作压力很大,每天要做的事情很多,老板对我的要求很严格。 Wǒ juéde gōngzuò yālì hěn dà, měi tiān yào zuò de shìqíng hěnduō, lǎobǎn duì wǒ de yāoqiú hěn yángé. I feel a lot of stress at work: there are so many thing to do everyday; and, the boss is very strict with me in his demands
除了工作我还有其他的一些压力:我现在没有女朋友,而我妈妈希望我尽快结婚。她经常要给我介绍女朋友,但是我很不喜欢她这么做。我们经常因为这件事吵架。 Chúle gōngzuò wǒ hái yǒu qítā de yìxiē yālì: wǒ xiànzài méiyǒu nǚpéngyou, ér wǒ māma xīwàng wǒ jìnkuài jiéhūn. Tā jīngcháng yào gěi wǒ jièshào nupéngyou, dànshì wǒ hěn bù xǐhuān tā zhème zuò. Wǒmen jīngcháng yīnwèi zhè jiàn shì chǎojià. Aside from work I also have some other pressures: I don’t currently have a girlfriend, but my mother hopes I can get married as soon as possible. She often wants to introduce girls to me, But I really don’t like her doing that. We regularly argue because of this situation.
我现在的工资还算可以。虽然工作很累,但是我觉得这样还可以接受。我最大的愿望是有更多休息时间,做一些我想做的事, 比如旅行。 Wǒ xiànzài de gōngzī hái suàn kěyǐ. Suīrán gōngzuò hěn lèi, dànshì wǒ juéde zhèyang hái kěyǐ jiēshòu. Wǒ zuìdà de yuànwàng shì yǒu gèng duō de xiūxi shíjiān, zuò yìxiē wǒ xiǎng zuò de shì, bǐrú lǚxíng. My current salary is OK I suppose. Although the job is very tiring, I still think I can put up with it. My biggest desire is to have more time to relax, and be able to do the things I want to do, for example travelling.
这就是我现在的生活。 Zhè jiùshi wǒ xiànzài de shēnghuó. This is my current life.
好了,这就是王小明的生活。下次我们还可以听一听其他人的故事。我们下期再见。 Hǎo le, zhè jiùshì Wáng Xiǎomíng de shēnghuó. Xià cì wǒmen hái kěyǐ tīng yī tīng qítā rén de gùshì. Wǒmen xià qī zàijiàn. OK, that was the life of Wang Xiaoming. Next time we can have a listen to another person’s story. See you next time.
