读完 Educated 很受触动，尤其是后面几章。
“What do I need from this place? There was only one thing: my memories.”(Westover 310) 读这段 Tara 写的话，想想自己的过去，我何尝也不是这样呢？过去留下的有什么，只有记忆，也许还有身上的伤疤。有人说 I have changed a lot, becoming more and more outgoing. 也许只有自己知道，自己是那个悄悄在夜晚舔着自己伤口的人。”The distance - physical and mental - that had been traversed in the last decade nearly stopped my breath, and I wondered if perhaps I had changed too much. All my studying, reading, thinking, travelling, had it transformed me into someone who no longer belong anywhere?” (Westover 312)
也许这个问题被她在整本书的结尾回答了（其实也不能算是回答，她自己也没有找到答案）——”You could call this selfhood many things. Transformation. Metamorphosis. Falsity. Betrayal. I call it an education.”(Westover 329)
感谢有个人在我的路途上也给我点亮了一盏灯， I believe this is my own education.
