고맙습니다, Friends. (HYU Graduation Day, and my Thank You Speech)7:36 AM
As all of you know, I've been talking about my ESL experience for the past 3 blog entries.This will be the last post about my estranged career, as I say my thanks to the people who made it super worth it. While reading, here's the outfit I wore on my 한양대학교 HYU students' Graduation Day! I was a damn proud teacher that day.
Fun Fact: My students and Korean friends call me "choding", meaning elementary student, because they think I look too young to be a teacher. I had to prove to them I'm not as naive as I look. Kkkkk ^^

What I Wore: Top F21; Gurly Glam beanie & stockings; K's skater skirt; platforms and gift was a present
This may not be an appropriate attire for a formal graduation ceremony, but this look screams out all my emotions that day. Black, I mourned for the departure of my beloved friends; Red, the color of happiness because of course I was also happy they graduated and they'd finally see their families again; Heart stocking- my heart was filled with love for them. See? LOL. I've never been a fan of following dress codes anyway. ;)

To my Han Yang University friends (쭈쭈가가 Gang): I just had to say this- I think you boys are the most amazing Koreans that has graced through the classrooms and hallways of SME. ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Aside from being extremely good-looking and cool, you guys are so generous and kind. Funny how my first impression of your group was the bully and cocky ones. You all proved me wrong. You were all so friendly and you never fail to put smile on our faces. I'm so glad we all met. Sun, Gabriel, Ted, Jack2x and Sol- meeting all of you was the best part of my ESL journey. We'll see each other again, maybe not too soon, but someday. Love you guys. I'm just one Kakao message away! :) Miss you all.
Lee Kyeong Hwan oppa, you'll never probably read this post, because you don't have Facebook and you hate social networks but, I just wanted to say thank you for everything! Most especially for giving me my Korean name, 한미현, I really love it!! When you told me I was your best teacher, I was wondering if you could read minds and knew that you were my favorite student. (o.O) Being your teacher, you also taught me so many things I can never learn from books. You taught me that being simple was okay, you showed me how great it is to be thoughtful and generous, and you practically proved to me that gentlemen still exists!ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ All our weird conversations and secrets will stay with me. And I'll remember all the Korean words you taught me (good AND bad kkk) as you remember all the lessons I taught you. Thank you for the friendship. Thank you for being a great oppa! I'll never forget you. See you.. 我愛你
The rest of my students: Brad, Jay, Jinny and Sophie- I am so proud and glad that I became your teacher. I could not ask for better students. Even if our first day was awkward and uncomfortable (because you guys were my first students EVER!), I'm happy that you gave me a chance to get to know each of you. Brad, you will be a great novelist one day, I know that. Sophie, you inspired me with your free spirit. Keep on traveling. Jay, I will miss your weird interpretations and deep thoughts. Jinny, my little giggly girl, you will never know my real age but I'm glad you treated me like your unnie! I love you guys with all my heart. See you when I see you. <3
( Save the best for last! )
