Lee Jae-hyuck_Dept. of International Relations, '11
“Korean macho Mustafa,” red meat with blood all over, two and a half sets of 50 push-ups, ubiquitous writer’s block, only one facial expression — expressionless, Girl’s Generation enthusiast or girls in general and yet single — these are the simple descriptions that can nudge you the idea of this month’s honorable Guest Reporter, me. Although my heart stays at the age of 21, and the picture says that I look like 26, I must admit my seniority over everyone else in the Dept. of International Relations. To tell the tale, studying in the U.S. for 10 years and two years of work experience still could not efface my legendary Grade Point Averages (GPAs) trace that is equivalent to Earned Run Average (ERA) of Babe Ruth.
My original motto that I can re-take classes but never be able to re-live one good party, has sorrowfully phased away. Hence, here I am back to school studying and feeling as if I am a baby back to the mother’s womb in a sense of safety and comfort. I appreciate walking to classes, getting hit by fluttering cherry blossom petals, spiritual coffee time between classes and most of all, time given to transform myself. It is, in fact, my pleasure to write for this magazine, present in front of classes and to be here as a student at the University of Seoul. Hoping to make the best out of two years remaining of my undergraduate, I would like to end this intro with one last comment, “If you see me on the campus, hola at me.”
