I have worked for The UOS Times since 2016, when I was in my second year at the University of Seoul (UOS). Two years feels really long for me. Almost two years, and there are a lot of things that have happened around me. I had to face many problems, decide on various issues, and understand a great number of things. It was really a challenge for me. The UOS Times’s 147th issue will be last magazine that carries my name. However, I still expect my life to be much more exciting based on experience which I have at The UOS Times. I feel grateful to reporters that I have worked with. I hope that all the people at The UOS Times and UOS have bright future. From next semester, I will be a reader of The UOS Times, not a reporter. I really look forward to reporters at The UOS Times making an even better magazine. Thanks to everyone again.
It has been only three semesters since I entered The UOS Times, but I have to leave. In my first chit-chat, I wrote that I hope to learn as many things as possible. When I said I wanted to learn, what I meant was that I wanted to gain knowledge. However, I think I learned more than just knowledge through the time I had here, and it was possible thanks to my colleagues. I really feel thankful to them.
Choosing to join in The UOS Times was one of my best choices I have ever made. If you are reading my article and considering joining here, do not hesitate to join us. I hope to see my colleagues later in the Media Building, too.
Two and a half years ? the amount of time that has passed by since I joined The UOS Times. When I first came here I was just a freshman with no proper thoughts or plans for how to spend my university days. I just wanted to do something meaningful. I thought that joining the university press would give me a lot of special and memorable experiences, and The UOS Times fulfilled my expectations. I have been to a lot of places where I would not likely have gone otherwise. I have met a lot of good, talented people. And I have learned and experienced a lot of new things. Without joining The UOS Times, such experiences would not have been possible, and my life at UOS would not have been this satisfactory. Looking back, a lot of things happened even though two and a half years may just be a small part of my life. The days I spent here are invaluable and will be unforgettable.
Before I leave my post, I want to thank all the good people who have helped me through these five semesters of reporting. Without you, things would have been much harder for me. I really appreciated your help. And finally, I thank you, the reader, who had been reading my articles including this last one.
Over the course of one and a half years, I have written eight articles. I want to thank everyone who has been involved in this experience. First, I am grateful to the readers. They are the reason why The UOS Times has published so many articles. I also want to express appreciation to my interviewees, without whom my articles could not have existed, and I hope these articles to have delivered useful information to readers. Although I am leaving as a reporter at The UOS Times, the experience will be my best memory of UOS. Moreover, I would like to say thank you to my colleagues, An Yoon-hee, Jo Geon-ho, and Kim Jung-gon, who always aided and made me happy when I was depressed.
I have gained many things from The UOS Times, including nice friends and English writing skill. As I leave, I want to congratulate myself for enduring the tough reporter life. Remaining reporters of course will not always be content with their time here, but I want to encourage them to endure it. In the end, you will gain something invaluable!
Farewell to you, my friends. We will see each other again. Do not cry ’cause it is not the end of everything. I may be miles away, but here is where my heart will stay. With you, my friends, with you. Yesterday is a treasure, today is here. Tomorrows' on its way, the sky is clear. Thank you for the mem’ries of all the laughter and tears, not to mention our doubts and our fears. The hypertension we gave to our peers. It is really funny to look back after all of these years.
Farewell to you my friends. We'll see each other again. Don't worry 'cause it's not the end of everything. I may be miles away. But here is where my heart will stay. With you, my friends, with you
