It has been 8 months since I came to United States. Ever since I
got here, I
experienced many changes in my life and had time to think about them. Concretely speaking, I joined KSAK (Korean Student Association at Kearney) and participated in two events. The first event was the 'Korean Night' which goal was to introduce Korean cultures and food. And the second event was 'The International Food Festival(IFF)' that all kinds of international students, who have studied in UNK, participated. Due to the fact that KSAK was first assmbled during last semester, the Korean Night event was nearly first independent event for Korean culture. A few Korean students who had studied in UNK also had taken part in the event IFF, this was first time that Korean Association directed. The process of preparing two of big events had gave me chances to consider more something around me and get mature more.
I’ve met all different kinds of people here and realized everyone has different personalities. Their characters were too various to classify as I want to distinguish or control them. If so, how can I treat people and how can I react when we get in trouble? Wondering about those questions, I’ve thought about relationships between I and others and traits of people that I might meet in future. Those anxieties and questions were likely to make me more strong, mature and considerable about treating people.
Now I have about seven weeks until I come back to Korea. In January, even I could not notice what I want, like if I want to come back to home or stay here little bit longer. Everything around me confused me. For instance, I wanted to study as a full-time student and considered to transfer to American university. However, there were some limitations, problems that I have to be in University at least two years from now and I have to spend too much expenses that what I expected. Though eventually I gave it up to transfer, I saw some Korean students, who came here as an exchange students, already transferred to here UNK. Honestly speaking, I was jealous of them.
Also, I hoped to take part in some charming competences and meeting that has been held in Korea, but I could not do so, because I am not in Korea now. Seeing the chances that I could not get, I felt much be disappointed and wanted to come back early.
Seeing them who transferred to here UNK and some chances that I could not get, rather I could thought about myself and concentrate on myself more. For instance, I have thought what job I really want, what my perspective for my life is really and who most important people in my life are. I can sure I found answers to some degree. Now I found out people who might stay with me in the world are only my family and a few best friends. I decided to dedicate my life to be with them happily. Until that time, what most important thing is in my life and list to do was for me all the time. So, the change of priority in my life and perspective was very new even to me.
Here, I think I have been getting to know about myself including even what I had not noticed, as well as English practice. That is the most valuable discovery and precious meaning among other experiences that I have got in here.
