everyone says," there is always a gap between imagination and reality, the former is always more ideal than the latter." although most people know that we cannot equate imagination with reality, people still find it hard to resist the temptation of imagination, for it is so sweet and wonderful, especially for me when i was working hard for my university dream in high school.
endless homework, heavy pressure couldn’t prevent me from drawing a fascinating(迷人的) picture of the university life in my mind. students are sitting leisurely(悠闲) on the green lawn, playing romantic songs with the guitar, or walking along the tree-lined pathway(小径), talking and laughing heartily… i imaged a large and beautiful campus, bright, clean classrooms, and cheap, tasty food. reality is, on most occasion, inferior(低等的, 低于) imagination.
when i was a university student, i found what i had imagined was far beyond reality. instead of sitting on the lawn singing songs, the students were seen reciting(背诵) english texts aloud; instead of walking cheerfully(欢乐地) along the small paths, they were walking hurriedly with books under their arms. i never expected to live on the sixth floor, the highest story. every day i had to drag(拖着) myself to my room after class, out of breath. and the meals disappointed me too.
when imagination and reality were naked(暴露的) before each other, i couldn’t deny(否定) a kind of complex feelings in my heart. how could i put the english books aside to read pastime books? how could i play while others were found me leaving late in the evening?
in the face of reality, imagination is beautiful, while reality can teach us much experience, which we cannot obtain from imagination.
