Fired up 點燃了

當某人is 或 becomes fired up, 這就意味著這個人對某件事情充滿熱情和期待。但也可能意味著某人很生氣。


I've managed to get hold of some tickets for the final and the thought of watching it in person has really got me fired up.

I was talking to someone about politics and we got really fired up and started shouting at each other.


別把 to get fired up 和 to fire away (at someone) 這兩個短語給混淆了。當某人 fires away (at someone) 意思是某人向其他人提出很多問題。

I know you're curious about my trip to the Amazon. Please fire away.
