期待已久的大学第五次聚会日益临近,我们激动满怀的同时又有些惴惴不安。

诚然,能与现居世界各地的朋友们重聚、有机会重温嘻嘻哈哈的大学趣事自然不亦乐乎。但这逝去的时光也正式借机提醒我们去衡量一番过去这么些年的人生选择。相较他人的恢宏成就,重聚或带来懊悔与安全感缺失。

Reunionsshortlyaftercollegeareparticularlypopular,followedbyadiparoundthe15-yearreunionmark.Duringthistime,graduatesoftenseemtobeunderfamilyorcareerstressandstruggletomakethecommitment.

毕业没多久就聚会尤其受欢迎,次于其后的是15年聚会。此时,毕业生通常都处于家庭和事业的压力之下,挣扎着兑现承诺。

以往聚会校友们更关注事业,25周年聚会则是一大转折。

这一年龄段,人们会想要重新开动脑筋;也是这一时期,大家的生活趋于安定,养家谋生、事业稳固,想着要重新拾起某些记忆。

25周年聚会时,每个人都经历了艰辛。有失落、有失望,道路并未如计划想象一般。随年龄增大,人们开始明白,头衔和工作只是生活太小的一部分。

尽管我们的人生观会变,但即便几十年过去了,大学友谊却完好无损。
