That's a WOW when I was going through the photo albums on the alumni webpage. Maybe after 50 years, I will feel much more overwhelmed. If that was like the Han Dynasty in ancient Chinese history, then now it's like the Tang dynasty. Though a thousand of years later, yet I am still not modernized. The truth is I'd rather stay as ancient as I could. Modernizing, at the same time, means steps closer to the end. No life means no civilization, meaning nothing is meaningful to someone at least. If I could go back, one side of me is telling myself I could have done better, yet the other side is doubting if I could-it was not easy after all. I am through, and yet who knows if I would step into the ivory tower once again. It's unpredictable, especially now.
