Cho Moon-kyung (Junior, English Language & Literature)
I cannot believe that now I am retiring from The Dongguk Post still at this moment when I am writing... Actually, one and a half years was long for me before, but it was really short when I recalled it in memories. Although my term of The Dongguk Post was rather shorter than others, it really seems that the process was intense. There were days when I suddenly had to write an enormous amount of articles when my colleagues who came in with me quitted. Looking back now, if I go back to that time, I would not be able to do it again. It was so intense to me, but it became a memory that I will never forget. What I have experienced in The Dongguk Post is likely to remain as my potential wherever I go. It was that much quantity of work and hard experience, but “what I got” seems to cover it all up. I have no regrets because I did my best. What worries me, however, is to hand over a lot of burden to my juniors in the future. On the other hand, I believe they will do well because we have learned a lot from each other so far working together.
Here, we can learn not only how to work, but how to make a relationship, and how to care for each other. The days when I wrote articles without sleep, the days when I put off my personal work and dealt with the works of The Dongguk Post were all memories for me now. There is opinion that definitely tough things happen to be remembered longer than happy things. Therefore, publishing newspapers in my life probably will be remembered for a long time. I am so happy and I am glad that I can publish the school newspapers. As time goes by, how cool thing it is to remember the experience and memories.
Obviously, I believe the abilities that the newspaper has given me will be very helpful in my life. Since in those hard times I became stronger and stronger even if I do not know where to work and where to go, so now I am confident that I can do it well. I cannot feel whether it is over or not, because it is just about to be published the last newspaper.
However, I hope my juniors will remember me as a decent senior, just as my seniors remain in my memory as great people. Also, I am very grateful to the teachers who helped us with our newspaper and worked harder than anyone else. I am sad and excited to think that The Dongguk Post will definitely go well without me. Now I am not going to be a student reporter again, but I am going back to being an original student. So I am going to cheer on the future publication of my juniors at the behind. I want to say thank you to the juniors who have followed me well. To me, The Dongguk Post was really short but intense. Now I am really leaving! Goodbye!
