(Brendan and Patricia are talking about the New Year. Brendan asks Patricia what her resolutions are.)
Brendan: I can’t believe it’s a new year already.
Patricia: Like they say, time flies like an arrow!
Brendan: That’s so true. We should cherish every single moment.
Patricia: That is exactly something I need to work on. 
Brendan: Do you have any New Year’s resolutions?
Patricia: Well for one, I want to do better in school. 
Brendan: Wait, I thought you got good grades at school?
Patricia: I failed two classes last year, but I promise to be more hard-working. 
Brendan: That’s good. You’re realizing your mistakes and making changes.
Patricia: OK, enough about me. What about you?

(布蘭登和派翠莎正在談論新年。布蘭登問派翠莎她的新年新計劃是什麼。)
布蘭登:我真不敢相信已經是新的一年了。
派翠莎:就像人們所說,光陰似箭啊!
布蘭登:真的。我們應該珍惜每分每秒。
派翠莎:那正是我必須努力的地方。
布蘭登:妳有任何的新年新計劃嗎?
派翠莎:嗯,其中之一,我想要在學業上更進步。
布蘭登:等等,我以為妳在學校成績都不錯呀?
派翠莎:我去年兩堂課被當了,但是我發誓要更努力。
布蘭登:很好啊,妳了解妳的缺點並且做出改變。
派翠莎:好啦,別說我了。那你呢?
 
 
(Brendan and Patricia continue their conversation.)
Brendan: There is something, but I’m afraid to talk about it. 
Patricia: I’m your best pal. So, don’t be shy. I am all ears.
Brendan: Don’t laugh; but, I really want to find a girlfriend.
Patricia: Oh, you’re looking for love this year!
Brendan: I feel like a loser. Nobody likes me. 
Patricia: Don’t be silly. I know a lot of girls interested in you.
Brendan: Really? Why didn’t you tell me sooner?
Patricia: I didn’t know you felt so troubled about it. 
Brendan: Will you help me out then?
Patricia: Of course, it’s a new year, so we should have a fresh start!
 

 (布蘭登和派翠莎繼續他們的對話。)

布蘭登:有一件事,但我不敢談它。
派翠莎:我是你最好的朋友。所以,就別害羞囉,我願洗耳恭聽。
布蘭登:別笑喔,我真的想要交女朋友。
派翠莎:哦,你今年想要尋找愛情啊!
布蘭登:我覺得我像是個失敗者,都沒有人喜歡我。
派翠莎:別說笑了,我知道有很多女生對你感興趣耶。
布蘭登:真的嗎?妳怎麼不早點跟我說?
派翠莎:我不知道你對感情那麼困擾啊。
布蘭登:那麼妳會幫我嗎?
派翠莎:當然囉,這是新的一年,所以我們應該都有個新的開始!
