Title: September Letter
The cold wind is starting to pick up slowly. It makes it necessary to wear clothes that are long-sleeves, right? ^^ Is everyone doing well? Lately, I’ve been putting my hands together and waiting for Super Junior’s comeback.. You can treat it that I’ll be doing well in here (when it happens). I am currently being dispatched to prepare for the Ground Forces Festival(,) and because of the events in between and also the preparations(,) I’m living day by day busily. (Because I’m an ambassador(,) I’m working hard kk) I work out every now and then, read books as well as the letters sent by you guys~ I’m healthier and have not caught a cold(,) I’m being very strong and doing well. Euhaha! ^^
Have you listened to the songs which I’ve recommended in the previous letter? I like Dear no one, first heartbreak, City dove etc~ c: Especially Anyway because my mood becomes very good(,) it feels as if I’m listening to our own album, too~ I would like compose and let everyone hear my great songs, my stories as well~ ^^
Ah~ I’ve been thinking lately~ It feels as though I’m on a really long trip.. A trip means that you will end up back in wherever you’ve started off from. Just like how when you travel to a place(,) you buy a pretty post card and write a letter to send to the people you love(,) I hope the letters that I’ve sent each time are like that kind of postcards which give everyone that kind of joyous feeling. Hmm~ This trip… Is kind of interesting(.) I get to learn about the world which I didn’t know about and I meet people whom I might not have had the chance to meet in the society(,) and because of these people’s stories(,) I laughed. And cried..
Times like this are valuable. When you go on a trip with people(,) you get to know them better(,) right? You fight and sulk because of each other(,) and when the trip ends you would think, ‘I’m never going to see this person ever again!’ And as if having to have made that firm decision(,) you get angry! k You end up seeing whether you guys get along or not after understanding each other in detail.. At the same time(,) when the other person matches with you well and during the process(,) you’ll feel like, ‘this person completes me strongly~’ It seems as though it disciplines.. and makes someone into a person who is a cool figure; an adult!
On the other hand when you actually like someone and feel, 'I would like to go on another trip with this person!’ and 'Ah~ He/She is a good person, huh’ It also makes you want to help to change a once cold person to become someone with a warm existence~ That kind of feeling where I meet someone who makes me want to share everything that I have?? It’s my goal to be able to meet 3 of this kind of friends during my trip(,) friends who I would like to keep seeing for the rest of my life. I think it’s already hard to have 1 of this kind of friend because I may have said something like this 1 year ago.. But how do I feel now? I don’t really know because this trip hasn’t ended yet(,) after having to fight with(,) reconcile with(,) meet and part from people(,) I have this good feeling as I feel that I have met friends who are more precious than those relationships.
Time has been passing rather quickly than expected during this trip~ I’ll go back safely after completing (my military service) so please don’t worry about me~ Understood? ^^
It’s almost Shindong hyung’s birthday~ Our ELFs whose birthdays are coming up soon, too~ I didn’t write the well wishes in the previous letter ㅠ I’m sorry~ Happy birthday everyone~ Remember to have your Vitamin Cs!! Always happily~ Healthily ^^ I love you.
PS. I’ve become a Corporal. From Recruit No. 40 and now Corporal~ kkk Let’s meet at the Ground Forces Festival (8 ~ 12 October) A tiny publicity kk
