I Am Getting More Afraid With Psychology Class

My psychology class is getting scarier within each and every class. It's not haunted or something, but the lessons in class is giving me the creeps

Today, I learn about memory. To make it simple, our brain goes through several processes before an information can be stored in the long term memory (LTM). It goes through the short term memory first, and through some other process which I can't remember right now.

Then, my lecturer shows a video of a person that cannot process the memory into the LTM (his brain is damaged). The person in the video cannot even remember what he was doing yesterday. Every time his wife came into the room, to him, it is the first time. He even wrote a diary every minute, but when he look at his diary again, he says that he did it unconsciously. Somehow I can feel the same thing happening to me. I can't imagine if the same thing happen to me. I will not remember my friends, I can't even remember what I did yesterday...

Thanks to Allah that I am still fine and healthy by the time I write this post. It makes me become more thankful to Him for everything that He gives to me.

Some questions raised in my mind:
- Why do Allah creates a complicated process for our brain to store informations?
- Why do we have a short term memory and long term memory?
- How can the person with damaged brain continue his life?

Whatever the answer is, I believe that Allah knows better than I am

  1. - Why do we have a short term memory and long term memory?
    - How can the person with damaged brain continue his life?

    1)Xsemua information perlu disimpan dlm long term memory..kalo sume information di simpan dlm long term memory,susah ar nk recall mende yg betul2 penting..so, that's why ade short term memory. Kalo xde long term memory, human are forgetful.. So, dua2 short term memory and long term memory is useful.

    2) The person who have brain damage doesn't know that their brain are damaged. kalo memory lost pon boley lg survive, cam org dlm video tu. die xpasan pon otak die rosak.. huhu~

    soalan first: Allah lebih mengetahui..

New College Life In UKM

After intentionally abandoning my blog for around 6 weeks, I think it's about time I write something about what is currently happening in my life.

Since the last time I updated, I haven't done anything much. I met some of my friends, and mostly spent my time with my families and explaining to every single one of them about "why" am I not returning to the States. Most of the them accept the fact easily and told me to be strong, work hard in the future and don't make the same mistake (which usually just simplified to "don't play games too much")

ADD

Finally, I reached Disc 2 in FFVIII. Still on the way to rescue Squall from the torture room. Speaking of Squall, remember the time where he was stabbed by icicle spear from Edea? There's an interesting theory where Squall was already dead at that time (Aerith died after being stabbed by Sephiroth's Masamune once, too). Everything that happened after that was, you guess it, just a dream. Click here if you want to read the full theory.

EDIT: One theory also states that Square had some other plan for Aerith. Here's the link.

Let say this theory is true. During the start of Disc 2, we were brought to the dream of Laguna. So it is a dream, inside a dream. Looks like Square had done it way before Christopher Nolan's Inception!

.........

*ehem* anyway, most fan's theory are awesome to read. But no one can truly justify and give best explaination on where the hell do Necron in Final Fantasy IX came from. There were no hints or whatsoever about him, and suddenly he appeare…

Being Different Is Lonely

From our ages, I know that I am different from most of my classmates. Naturally, most of them are three years younger than me, but that is not the problem. In fact, I had the most fun surrounded by them. They don't treat me differently just because I'm older. I think I am blessed with the fact that there are others who are older than the average (those who were born in 1993) in the batch.
I think I am not as matured as someone of my age should. But then again, there's no guideline on how matured a person should be or how you to be a mature person. Though my guidelines are basically these two: when you can prioritize and you can be responsible towards your actions. I don't know if I have these two qualities, but I know I am working towards it, slowly but surely.
Anyway, being older doesn't make me automatically different from the others. But there are certain things that make me feel.. different, and sometimes isolated. Like at this moment of writing, I am overwhelm…
