还好,电话和视频聊天能让我们感到靠近了一点点

so I try to make sure he feels loved and supported every day.

其实他只是想告诉我,他一直睡不着,想着我,思念我

It was easy to say "Oh if I don't have the money, I can't go."

As a young dancer, he doesn't make much.

He had been awake thinking about me; missing me.

昨晚,我已经睡了,他打来了电话

in whatever way you can be.

一个目中无人的演员伤害了他的自尊心

thinking that even if I end up traveling for a day on the Greyhound,

and being there for them,

所以我竭力让他每天都感受到我的爱意和支持

 他赚的钱都花在了刀刃上

我支付不起路费,也没钱买票去看他的演出

He called me last night well after I had gone to bed,

说一句“哦,我没有足够的钱,我去不了。”是很简单的事情

and I think that's worth everything.

and each venue pays differently.

我被电话吵醒,接听的时候情绪有点不好

I have been finding side gigs and selling things here and there to save up,

不过,这些都不是他打来电话的原因

The money he does make goes to the necessities

Little did he know that I, too, was trying to get myself to his show.

即便我不得不站在剧院的门厅里,而不是坐在礼堂里

我一直在为钱的事情担心

He'd had a rough rehearsal ,

在他们需要时陪伴他们

他还不知道,我自己也在努力赚钱,希望能去看他的演出

他会把每一分钱都交给我

so when the call woke me up I answered with a sinking feeling.

and a snooty dancer had hurt his feelings,

that we forget about what's important.

心想着,即便要坐一整天的长途汽车

每个音乐厅支付的价钱都不一样

这样我就可以来看演出了

My boyfriend is a ballet dancer

He was going to be getting his paycheck for the week,

To offer me his money is a big deal.

作为一个资历尚浅的演员,他赚的钱不多

and performing out of state for the first time.

and was offering every penny to me

until I realized that it was about more than that.

with very little if any left over.

The long hours in the studio make it hard to hold an outside job,

To offer me his check is for him to go without for the week.

我想,有时候我们都专注于潦草度日 

但是,我意识到,这件事还有更重要的意义

我想,这样就够了

却忘了真正重要的事情

I think sometimes we get so focused on merely surviving

It's about supporting the ones you love

他快要拿到这个星期的报酬了

他那天的排练情况很糟糕

so that I could come to the show.

but this wasn't what the call was about.

不管你以何种方式站在那里

余钱很少,甚至没有。

我一直在四处寻找兼职,在各个商店当收银员,以此努力攒钱

整日待在练功房里,他很难在社会上找到工作

我男朋友是一个芭蕾舞演员

钱都给了我,就意味着他一整个星期一分钱都没有

I am going to be there for him.

 

but phone calls and video chats help make us feel a little bit closer.

and even if I have to stand in the lobby instead of sit in the theater,

The distance is difficult,

异地恋对我们来说都是煎熬

We are both willing to sacrifice what little we have... for each other,

把他的工资都交给我,这非同小可。

为了彼此,我们愿意倾其所有的付出

and can't afford the trip or the tickets to his show,

I've been worrying about money

意义在于,支持你所爱的人

为了他,我一定要去

第一次要去外省演出
