Hello, L.L.F readers! I am a senior reporter for L.L.F. I am already waiting for my graduation at Daegu University. When I starting writing for L.L.F I did not know how to write articles, and L.L.F felt awkward to me at fist. However, I can now understand the organization of the articles after being a reporter, and when I write articles I feel better than before. I am so surprised to write a swan song because I feel the time has been shorter than I thought.
Looking back on past times, there have been a lot of events in L.L.F. The events gave new things and new experiences to me. If I have to pick what I remember most about L.L.F, there are three experiences. First was a newspaper reunion in 2017. After being a reporter for a while, I went to a newspaper reunion. It was initially too difficult to talk with older reporters, however I drank soju and beer and then we looked like father and daughter after a time. Moreover, I sang a song(a trot) in front of the restaurant and then I whined at the end of the night because I did not want to go home. I think it was good opportunity for me as I usually get shy around people.
Second was going to do an interview of the student body with a senior reporter. Are we able to have an opportunity to do an interview with the student body while in university? In my opinion, it is rare to get the opportunity. Fortunately, I got the opportunity to do the interview due to my senior reporter being focused on interviewing the student body. It was a pleasing opportunity to know the student body’s ideas this year and they recognized how to think about what students want. Maybe I believe that the student government has an opportunity to resolve their plan for students.
Third was a SIG program. Frankly, in my opinion only people who did a SIG program can know the effort. I had difficulty doing SIG at first because it is different when writing an article. When we did a SIG program, our subject was to translate a tale about Su-Seong Gu. Furthermore it was hard to translate tales about Su-Seong Gu with spending all day at it, but we actively offered differing opinions on a SIG program in the end. I had no chance to meet a senior reporter, but I ate dinner and talked with other reporters due to doing the SIG program.
Finally, I want to mention the three directors in L.L.F. I know all directors have a heavy responsibility regarding the newspaper. Despite this heavy responsibility, they are good at leading all reporters and they are interested in what happens with L.L.F. Thank you to all of them. Next, I want to appreciate the foreigner professors because they always try to correct our Konglish into English. At the very end, I would like to express my appreciation to professor Kang who was always on the side of L.L.F and supported us with a warm heart. I met a lot of nice people and wrote interesting articles, thanks to all the reporters and professors. I love you all.
