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, 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..

  2. apsal ko x tido jer dalam lecture tuh...haha

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")

Because of What Someone Said

So a few days ago, I visited Borders Bookstore in IOI City Mall to get a book for a friend of mine. Incidentally, it is also my favorite bookstore, due to its quite nice selection of books and its location from my house. Anyway, the book that I wanted to buy was The End of Average by Todd Rose. I already finished that book (I want to write about it as well later), so I recommended it to my friend and she asked me to buy one for her. I had an exam on the day after but as far as I'm concerned, reading is more important than any exams that I will most likely forgot in a few weeks.

Also, each time I visit a bookstore, I will always walk out the store with at least one book. So, besides the book that I intended to buy, I bought two other books because I found it interesting. I know, it is a truly 'good' idea to buy two books when you have an exam tomorrow. In this post, I want to talk about the reason why I picked up one of the books.

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…
