16 .I used to think that doing well in school meant doing well in all my classes.

我以前认为在学校表现好就意味着门门功课都要做得好。

17 .But now I decided that succeeding in school meant only doing well in the classes that related directly to my future career.

但是现在我认定,在学校表现优秀意味着只要在和我未来职业直接相关的课程中表现优秀就可以了。

18 .I eliminated the conflict, at least in my mind.

我弱化了自己内心的斗争,至少是在思想上弱化了。
