One day in February, after the ‘Youngsan tragedy,’ I was on the subway. Some university women were talking about the Youngsan tragedy. I wondered what other university students thought about this issue so I listened to them talk. However, their dialogues ended abruptly and they began to talk about a television drama. They said, “Anyway, is ‘Boys over Flowers’ not fascinating TV drama?”
Recently, there are lots of university students who are interested in social problems and want to open up new world rather than stay in the world as it is. Recent examples include attending candlelight rallies against U.S. beef imports or student movements for social problems, and throwing stones at Lee Myung-bak government. Of course, “Boys over Flowers” is fascinating but we should also take an interest in social matters like the ‘Youngsan tragedy.’ I hope as many students as possible will take notice of changes in the world and society and lead the public making into much better world and society.

Nowadays, due to job shortage, many unemployed students go through hardships and failures in life. Because of this, the press has criticized the government by pointing out social structural problems. Inevitably, we can not disregard social structure. However I have a question: Is not it the trouble of individual ability? Why do they want employment, and what do they want to obtain?
The main point I want to make is that the attitudes of recent university students who go through with fires and waters for the employment only. I think English test scores such as TOEIC, TOEFL or Spec are not necessarily required for those who are just prepared and trying to fulfill their ambitions or already set up the course of their life time at present, because they will have the power to obtain their future naturally. Really talented persons whom companies need are the those who are not harmful to the others and just try to accomplish their goals in accordance with the procedures they have already set up.

I like to talk with the people to exchange opinions. However, sometimes I feel very uncomfortable, and sometimes I feel close even though it is my first meeting with them. I did not know why, but eventually I came to know that someone who has concrete dreams and has already set up their goals is the person whom I can talk with most comfortably. Those are the persons who answered with dignity when I asked, “Who are you? What is your dream?”
I can define the word “dream.” It is not dependant on how much money one earns, but on what kind of philosophy they have and whether they know where they are standing.

I believe the key-point of knowing their abilities just depends on how much they are satisfied with themselves. In short, we should manage our life with self-satisfaction. I do not believe those who are not satisfied with themselves or their lives will be able to satisfy others. How can those who are not satisfied with their own lives satisfy others? Everything goes the same way. Whatever you do in any fields, it is you and yourself should be satisfied at first. I believe.
one must be the best reader, the best customer and the best audience.
I want to become a person who can be able to talk to others openly as under when I am grown up in the future.

I have lived a life that is full
I traveled each and every high way
And more, much more than this
I did it my way

Those are parts of the words of a song titled My Way by Frank Sinatra who was the most famous Singer cum Actor in the U.S.A. I hope all readers could try to have the self-confidence and say as above when you look back on the life you managed in the future. 

Perhaps are you still trying to read others’ faces and put all the matters down to others?
