Hospice and Carnegie

by Yu-Jin Han

Do you happen to know hospice? I asked someone who is seated next to me what hospice is. She said it may be an animal hospital. But it is not correct. It is care for patients who is meeting death until they die. By chance, I found 'the hospice volunteer education' operating in Jeju University Hospital by my acquaintance. As a future nurse, I thought it could be helpful to improve my values and positive to experience further. So I applied to that. Actually It was hectic because of my things such as tiresome major educations. I had to run to the Jeju University Hospital as soon as I finished school. But in such busy days, I felt my passion burning into my heart. And then I received a certificate for the 18 hour session. Through this education, I learned how to approach and understand patients, pain management, infection management, and funeral procedures. Above of all, the word for 'death' vaguely worried came to me and I thought life of present time is precious and think that I would live faithfully.

Story 2
'I can do nothing. I am shy.' In this way, I was short of confidence. By chance, I found education of Carnegie who is known as a relationship between humans. Seeing its detailed titles, I thought it was necessary for me. And I thought It was an opportunity to improve my confidence. So I applied to that. There, I made a presentation in front of many students by preparing something to speak/say/talk about. Also I screamed to someone who wasn't getting along, played a variety of unexpected situations. Most of all, I saw passion and efforts through the other students. Moreover, I discovered my unknown aspects. And I thought through my advantages such as patience, efforts and sincerities, I could overcome my drawbacks. Finally, I won't forget their passion.

What's that sound?

In 2011, one afternoon, it was a normal hot and sunny day in K.L, Malaysia. I should had brought my daughter home from school by car. Before just until my departure, I had been working harder and harder nearer to the closing time.
Although I’d felt a bit tired, I had just started up the car engine, and then stepped on the accelerator pedal slowly. But my mind was still being full of my work. Suddenly I heard a noise like a plastic bag rustling. So I stopped going. I looked around me and outside the car while I was sitting in the car seat. I couldn’t find anything so I stepped on the accelerator pedal again. But I frightened by the noise became louder than before. I couldn’t leave because I suspected my car to be wrong. At that moment, my heart rate became a lot faster. So I got down from the car and then I looked around the car carefully. After that I was frightened by on the right side of the car and I couldn’t find the words. My car had already been crashed seriously against a pillar of the parking lot. The rustling plastic bag noise had been from my car with a pillar. The fact is that I had not slept for 2 days because of hard work and I’d stepped on the pedal while putting the car in reverse gear, so finally it was happened. I was being like a drunk driving. I had been so tired that I dozed off behind the wheel. It was a scary experience. After all I had to pay 2,500,000 won(US $2,200) for the repairs on my car, I didn’t finish my work within that day and I had to ask my friend to bring my daughter home. 
After this experience, I have tried to reduce working than before and when I do not feel well because of lack of sleep, I don’t drive. Experts said that lack of sleep can reduce immune functioning, is linked to obesity, a greater risk of depression and makes workers less effective during the day.

The Lasec Operation

by Lim Gookh Hwa
These days, I can see everything without glasses. Before, I had bad vision and couldn’t do all things. I was very inconvenienced. So I decided to have a Lasek operation. I had wanted to take this operation as soon as possible.
 Directly after my final tests were finished, I went to the best hospital in Gawng-ju with mom. First, nurse dropped various eyedrops on me for the check. And then I could meet a doctor who was wearing glasses. I was definitely nervous. When we came back home, my parents were concerned about it. I was also worried, but I had a plan that I would certainly have the Lasec Operation at this winter vacation.  
 It was very quickly finished. it might have just taken 10 minutes or 15 minutes. Doctor had been talking during all the period in order to relax me.
I can’t see clearly yet because it’s only been 3 weeks. Sometimes it makes me mad. If I read a book for a long time, my sight becomes bad quickly. I would like my eyes rapidly.  

A never forgotten day in the airport

by Kim Da Jeong

Last August, I went to travel to China with my sister. When we went to Shanghai we just bought one-way tickets, because we hadn’t decided how many days we would be in Shanghai. And we arrived in Shanghai, the teacher helped me buy ticket, because we didn’t have China credit card so we didn’t buy a homecoming ticket.
 We met the teacher also had a great time in Shanghai for 6days. Finally, the day came for us to leave. We arrived early at the airport. When we saw the ticket, we found my sister’s name was misspelled. A teacher had confused two spellings of the name.
 We quickly asked airline personnel about this. But they said there was no ways correcting spelling. So we got a refuse for the ticket, and bought new ticket. But at that time they had already sold out all economy class air tickets. So we had no choice but to buy a first-class air ticket.
