About 1 month has passed since the Class of ‘15 freshmen entered CWNU. Are they adapting to the university well? I interviewed a freshman Yang Hui-Jae (Dept. of Journalism & Mass Communication) from Gangneung, Gangwon-do.
Q. How is your school life?
Yang: I feel fresh. Middle and high school was too small to name as a society. University seems to be a microcosm of society due to its large scale. I am satisfied with my current university life because I have never had any fantasies about it unlike many other people.
Q. What is the difference between Gangneung and Changwon?
Yang: Changwon is more townish than Gangneung, and people have different personalities. People in Gangneung are emotional and have a buttery way of speaking because Gangneung is a remote place. However, people in Gyeong-nam are cold hearted and have a curt manner.
Q. Why did you choose your major?
Yang: Newspaper and broadcasting usually deal with new information. To get new information, journalists have to lead a very busy life and be ahead of others. I thought that these kinds of efforts will satisfy me. Also, I was envious of journalists leading a busy life to get information constantly because I am a bit lazy.
Q. What do you want to do now?
Yang: I need to have time to muse alone. After the college entrance exam, I have always been together with people. I want to have time alone, forget what I hope to disremember, and speculate to my heart’s content. Then I would like to listen to music, watch a movie, and read a book, stuff I couldn’t do as a high school senior.
Q. Would you leave a message for the readers?
Yang: People don’t change easily. Even if people’s personality changes temporarily, it returns to the original through a trivial moment. So I don’t want you to be willing to make the change although you don’t like your character. I think if you accept and love yourself the way you are, you will be able to live a more satisfactory life.
