虎年快乐 ٩(๑・̑◡・̑๑)۶

年夜饭是外卖和巧克力,坐在宿舍里被我慢慢吃掉的。窗外是朦胧的雪夜。饺子像是泛着油光的金元宝,又像是漂泊的小白帆。家人都很遥远,年味淡如一缕烟,但爸爸告诉我:“这样的元旦因为不一样所以值得纪念。” 有个可爱的学妹送了一罐凤梨酥和一大罐蛋卷,带着漂洋过海的喜庆和家乡的味道。每一颗圆滚滚的凤梨酥落在舌尖上的重量让我很想很想家。“家”是红红火火喜气洋洋的阖家团圆,不局限于任何一个地方,是爸爸妈妈在身边的心安。当身在异国他乡时,家变成了一个符号,无法言说,只能意会。 隔着屏幕发现原来春节是如此的需要氛围。爷爷说我终于是大姑娘了,但我感觉自己仍如此需要长辈的关怀,好像一个永远长不大的小孩。我看了一会春晚,听了些老歌,抢了些红包,下载了些表情包,顺溜地说着祝福语,等着一个隐形的轮回(因为时差,仿佛要守岁两次)。时针坚定的迈向新的一年,安静却不乏温柔。少了喧嚣繁华,竟别有一番滋味。 确实是值得被记住的一次大年三十 ♪(๑ᴖ◡ᴖ๑)♪
