The Start of Another Spring

Author: Mr. Youssef Medhat

“Can you hear it? The first bird of spring. The first step after winter is always the hardest. The light blinding. The air cold as ice, catches your breath. But after the first step comes the second and the third. We learn to walk again, to move, to breathe, to see, to live… Time to cast away such crowns of ice, and take a new one. A garland of living green.”

The above quote from the play, The Wild Bride, signifies the natural transition to spring from winter that living creatures undergo. Here in KAIST, there is another similar kind of transition; that from the winter break to the new semester.  As the quote suggests, the transition could be difficult. However with the right attitude one could can be ready to brace head into the new semester.
