活动名单 Activities Rosters

大家好!明德中文暑校第一周转瞬既逝,这个周末当学生勤快地学习时第二周不声不响就来了。这周课外活动要开始,已经报名的同学可以在下面的名单找活动的地点与时间。

如果你之后发现课程的负担太沉,一两个小时都抽不出来,也可以不参加课外活动。然而,天天勤奋苦读的话,你很快就会感觉特别疲惫。不能为了一个稍微好点的成绩完全忽略心里方面的需求;当快乐不再是一个认真去追求的东西而只是一种在工作中出没无定的副产品时,人生的意义就会消失。

 

Hail all!  Your first week in Middlebury is officially over!  Some may have noticed that time in Middlebury is a lot like Sauron’s ring — continually shifting, expanding, tightening.  With the coming of the second week, everyone should now be familiar with the immediate surroundings of campus and the pace of courses, so there shouldn’t be too many surprises in day-to-day life.  This week we will start extracurricular activities; you can look at the rosters below to find the time and location of the activities you picked.

 

At Middlebury, there are two types of pleasure: “enjoyment” pleasure and “reward” pleasure.  Enjoyment pleasure comes from the hobbies that you engage in for fun, whether that be swimming, taking a walk, calligraphy, exploring the cuisine that Middlebury has to offer, etc.  Reward pleasure is the happiness you get from a job well done, namely the gargantuan intellectual strides from boiling yourself in Chinese day in and day out.  Moving forward, you must ask yourself, can I survive on reward pleasure alone?  What are the activities that I must do to be able to sustain a healthy body and mind?  One of Middlebury’s greatest struggles is finding the golden ratio between these two ostensibly contradistinct forms of pleasure.
