“I will get straight A’s and sign up for more than three extracurricular activities starting this semester.” This is a comment made by a student at Hanyang University(HYU). In fact, there are probably a number of students who have same or similar plans. Getting perfect grades and doing various extracurricular activities seem to be getting more and more important for university students.

However, the motive for doing so is unclear. Do they have a specific reason for taking part or is it just another activity to go on their resumés? Students might have their eyes set on a certain work field that they want to enter. However, it is easy to overlook if the lifestyle that work field offers matches up with onesʼ priorities in life. When choosing what to do in the future, priorities must be set in advance.

“Although I had a successful career, I was not as happy as I had expected to be. I couldn’t spend much time with my family for I was working all the time,” said Kim Kwan, former reporter of Joongang Tongyang Broadcasting, a South Korean nationwide general cable TV network, at a lecture for university student reporters in 2015. He added that he wants to pursue personal happiness and is currently planning on studying abroad. Even if onesʼ interests in a specific line of work and aptitude match up well, the reality might be entirely different from its expectations. It is important to decide what kind of values to pursue and use those values as milestones in life.
