In March 2019, I became a sophomore. I applied to the Konkuk Bulletin not to spend 2019 meaninglessly like I was in freashman year and then I became a Bulletiner. There was more to do than I thought. I was immature, unconfident, and always made mistakes. Sometimes I was scolded for these, and sometimes I was praised by other editors for what I wrote. In particular, I did many things that I would not have done if I had not joined the Konkuk Bulletin. Time has passed, and the 45th and 46th editors left and I became the editor.
In the beginning, my willingness to work hard gradually disappeared, and I thought a lot about why I was doing this. While doing activities, I often thought I wanted to quit. I was actually going out at this time. At that time, the 47th editors persuaded me to continue and cared for me. I was so sorry and now thank them so much. So many things happened. I prepared a contest, produced promotional materials, and interviewed people. Of course, the process was not easy and sometimes I felt angry. However, I think there were more good memories than bad ones. As I write this, I think my life will be like this. There were many bad memories in my life, but when I actually think about my life more carefully, there were also many good memories and they can be more than the bad ones. I do not know how my experience in the Konkuk Bulletin will affect my life in the future. However, I hope I would think that I did a good job of joining the Konkuk Bulletin in 10 or 20 years’ time. Of course, there have been so many reporters that have helped, and I would like to say thank you very much to all of them. Thank you for understanding and supporting me whenever I felt nervous. I am sorry for showing you a lot of bad behaviour at the end. There will be a lot of difficulties for the 48th and future Bulletiners. However, I hope they will experience more than just those difficulties.
Lastly, I want to tell myself that I did a great job, even though I am someone who has a lot of worries and regrets these days. In the past, I regret that I was not nicer to myself because I did not work as hard as I could, and many difficult things happened while I was working on the Konkuk Bulletin, but I did not quit and made it until the end. I want to give credit myself on this point. “You did a great job, thank you for your hard work…”
