AT ONE point in your life, you might have yearned to rewind time to a moment in the past, or fast-forward it to the future. The Yonsei Annals found out what Yonseians miss of their childhood, or look towards in the future. If you were given an opportunity to become any age you want, and to live for however long you’d like, what age would that be?
 
Kang Joo-youn (Fresh., Dept. of Nursing)
   These days, I feel like I want to live in this time forever. I could not be happier than I am right now. Being admitted to Yonsei University and attending nursing courses assure me that I was made to be a nurse! I am so grateful that I found what I want to do in the near future at such an early age. Although I haven’t taken many major courses yet, I find the study of nursing quite interesting. What is more is that I have formed many friendships with my classmates. Living at Songdo forms an environment where you can naturally make many friends. I am quite satisfied with people around me, which at the same time worries me because this kind of opportunity might not come again in the future. I want to enjoy this time fully and leave no regrets.
 
Jo Eun-ho (Soph., Dept. of Child & Family Studies)
   I wonder what my life would be like when I am 30 years old. By that time, I will have completed both my undergraduate and graduate courses and be doing something that I have been yearning for. I want to know especially if I would be “speaking on TV,” which is something I have been dreaming of since I was a child, or doing something totally unexpected! I might have also married someone, and I wonder who that would be? And most importantly, family and friends - I want to see how they would have changed in 10 years, and what I would mean to them? My dad would be near retirement and my sister at a higher position at the same company. Of course everything would be fine, but if something should go wrong when I am 30, I want to fix it in the present so that it would not happen in the future. I wish my mom would still be healthy 10 years later, but if not, I will come back to the present and tell her what to be careful of.
 
Kim Yun-a (Soph., Dept. of Vocal Music)
   If I could go back to the past, I want to be in the summer 6 years ago. I started vocal music that summer. I want to tell myself, that the most important thing in singing is to keep my voice as it is instead of faking it. During preparation for the arts school and university admission processes, the incredible pressure that I was under made me sing uncomfortably. However, if I sing with a sense of duty, listening to music at all, would be very stressful. Music should be something that is enjoyable for both the singer and the audience, and I really want to tell that to the younger me. It is the truth that I could never know at that time, but something I really need to tell to my younger self.
 
Shin Bum-su (Jr., Dept. of Electrical & Electronic Engin.)
   I still vividly remember how excited I was when I got the acceptance letter from Yonsei University and started attending the school. As a matter of fact, the privileges that we can enjoy as students would only last until before we graduate, which makes me think about going back to age 19, when I was a freshman. It is not that I’ve spent my freshman and sophomore years full of regrets, but the first thing I felt after meeting the freshmen of this year was a feeling of jealousy. I guess the memory of being a freshman is rooted deep in me. At that time, being acknowledged as an adult was quite original, as it was totally different from what I had experienced in high school. Standing on the line of becoming an adult, I sincerely enjoyed the perks of youth.

   At a bit less than twice my current age, I wonder what my life and family would be like. I am quite a family man, and family is a big priority for me - which makes me think about what my family and children would be like? Furthermore, as a senior anticipating graduation, I think I could become a better person if I could travel to the future and see how I am doing at that time. It would be a strong motivation that could lift me up, which is what I need right now.
