My name is Taufik Nurrohman. I’m 23 years old. I lived in Sumpiuh, Banyumas. When I was a child, I was a coward and crybaby kid. People told me that I was very shy and calm. The fact is that I was scared, not shy nor calm.
I was in kindergarten until my fifth age. When I was there, I was the only child who cannot call my teacher as how a normal teacher should be called. Nobody can forced me to do it. I called my teacher “mom”, because my teacher in the kindergarten at that time was my mother.
After graduating from kindergarten, I went to a madrassa school which is located just a few meters from the kindergarten. I got allowance between 200 to 500 rupiahs at the time. When my allowance runs out, then I will go to the kindergarten by foot to ask for more allowance to my mother.
After graduating from madrassa, I went to a Junior High School in Sumpiuh. The distance wasn't so far, but I need to cycling to get there. At that time, I got allowance one thousand rupiahs. It can be used to buy ice cream twice and a “dumplings”.
After graduating from Junior High School, I went to a Vocational School which is located right next to my previous Junior High School through my standpoint. At that time, I was no longer like to buy snacks. Teenagers problems started popping up, and I just tried to keep enjoying the school there, somehow. Automotive was a fairly heavy majors.
After graduating from there, I had to look for a job. I’ve signed up to a Limited Liability Company in Bekasi but I failed to be accepted because I did not pass the psychological test. A month later I came home from Bekasi without bringing anything. I felt so sad and regret to my family, especially to my mother. After that, I was unemployed for several months, until finally I got a job in my own city in a regular drinking water store. I only worked there for a few months, until finally I decided to leave because I felt uncomfortable.
After that I was looking for a job again, but once accepted the result remains the same. I decided to find out how to get money without working, and I got it from the internet. Years gone by, finally my parents wanted me to go to college. They put me to the college of nursing. My mother has ideals, so that all children in my family can go to college. I was the last, and this is where I am now.
