Story of my life

Salam everybody!

Finally, I received the email regarding to this project. I thought that I was disqualified for the final selection (who knows). By the time I wanted to start last night, suddenly my broadband gave me such an aggravating problem, disconnected automatically (-.-“). Then, I wrote everything on Microfost Word as a draft and posted it just now. (sigh~)

 So, let’s get it started!

My name is Nur Arimi bin Kamaruzaman. You can call me either Arimi or Kimi. Now, I’m a full time student of Centre for Foundation Studies, International Islamic University Malaysia (CFS – IIUM) or well-known as UIA. I’m pursuing my study in Computer Science at foundation level. I was born safely in 1991 at Hospital of Malacca (7 November 1991). You may jot it down for wishing me soon! (^_^). As an ICT student, certainly my interests are into all computing stuff and software especially computing security. That’s where the title “Warrior” that follows my nickname was ‘awarded’ inadvertently. 

                                                                                                     I LOVE CATS!

Hobby? ‘Facebook’ing for sure, doing research (mostly about viruses thinge), surfing the Internet. (Haiyooo, why so much with technology’s jargon? I’ve no answer for it!). Huhu. 


Which has more importance today in your life - family or friends? Why? In your experience, did you ever have to make a choice between your friends and family? If ‘yes’ please explain your answer and why did you do so?

For me, family will come first, but friends won’t be the second one. You got it? Family is the basic necessity for everybody. I love my family so much and everybody does the same thing too. It’s the place for us to pour and get some love, from our parents, siblings and relatives just as cited in a quote “Blood is thicker than water”.  When it comes to friends, as I said before, it won’t be the second one. It implies that there is no specific position for “friends”. I love all my friends and I love making new friends and acquaintances. I pour all my love on them, thanks for cheering up my life. That’s why friends won’t be the next.

What has been the most difficult hurdle you have overcome so far in your life? What did this experience teach you?

Culture – shocked. That’s the toughest hurdle that I have faced before. This was happening when the first semester of my study at UIA. I came from a daily school student, and had no friends there! Besides, most of the students there came from good schools such as MRSM, SBP and so on, and they have so many friends from their schools that enrolled there too. I felt so down, being pessimistic all the time. It affects my study. Even I can’t cope with the easy subjects! Then, suddenly he appeared, changed all my bad mindset, and taught me so many new things. He understands me well unlike others do. But then he stayed there for a few months only, before he was called for JPA scholarship to USA. Again, I lose a friend which was just recently met. It affects my exam, making it dropped down. Then I moved from the world of being alone to the world of socializing with people. Then, I recovered. Thus, I have learned that, we have to be friend with everybody, without judging them from their background (whether they come from a lavish family, good school and etc.).

What makes you happy?

My friends! They know on how to make me happy. Being with them will make me happy all the time.

Besides, by scoring in exams also will be also making me happy and get awarded by something from someone. (^__^)

What is your biggest fear in the world…other than death?

Yeah, people might laugh, but frankly, I HATE/FEARED with the CENTIPEDE. OMG! It was scary to see that vermin, crawling at my house. Eeee, it tickles me. Recently, I met it. I was at the toilet at that time, answering for nature’s call. Suddenly, I saw a blackish vermin, crawling on me. I was about to scream, and my reflex action did almost break the toilet’s door. OMG. Then, I was shivering incessantly, watching that varmint crawling anxiously. Then, I took a broom, and smashed it into pieces while shuddering. I took around 10 – 15 minutes to kill it. Huh….

                                                                         Eeeee my mom smashed it for me....thanks mak :)

Do you think youth today have an easier or harder life than our parents’ generation? Please explain your answer.

Yes. Youths nowadays have better life as compared to our parents’ generation. The newly-improved technologies have facilitated people in communications and daily life activities. We can communicate with other people easily with handphones and computers with Internet connection, complete our daily tasks with the aid of technology. Unlike before, people need to use everything that they have for completing their works. For instance, they have to use telegram to get connected within each other. There is no e-mail, handphones and Internet for connectivity. To sum up, technology has changed people’s lifestyle and youths today to be more sophisticated.

Do you think “youth” (people like you) are rebellious in nature? Do you think youth today rebel like they used to before? Explain. Do you/have you rebelled against anything or anyone in the past? Explain.

Erm. For me, youths now are more rebellious than before. For everything that they are not satisfied, they will rebel. This seems to be more obvious when they rebel towards their parents when they are not allowed to do something (i.e hooking up with friends, etc). Yes, I admit that I have rebelled before, on my parents when they nagged on me, restricted the rules of using computer and etc.

What’s the best thing about being youth today? Do you think the future is bright, for your generation or do you think the future is something to worry about?

InsyaAllah, I guess my future will be bright, because the requirement of ICT’s graduates is very high!
We have bunch of advanced technologies as mentioned above, more comfortable living place, independence and freedom, but don’t take them for granted! Most of the teenagers nowadays have given such a lot of social ills (drug abuse, pornographic material, illicit sexual intercourse, etc). As the technology grows, the social ills are also growing up! These are the things to be worried of. Therefore, by establishing youth programme such as YouthSays and Rakan Muda, it will help to eradicate the social ills by promoting the beneficial activities which are suitable for the youth.
