Behind The Keyboard - Supernemesis

Tuesday, November 23rd, 2010

interview_04Sociotown is familiar with Supernemesis, who is usually called “Nemo”.  When I first heard the word “Nemo”, my mind goes to the Disney movie “Finding Nemo”, then suddenly I giggled. I can’t see Supernemesis as a clown fish! Today, I had the pleasure to interview him through Facebook. This is my first interview from Facebook.

Nadia = Hi Nemo! How are you?

Supernemesis = I’m good. I’m preparing for my O’level exams that coming soon this January.

N = O’level?  I’m sorry. Can you tell me what that is?

S = O’level exams are also called regular exams that are given during your 10th grade and it is an international exam held all over the world and hosted by England.  Depending on the grades, you can get admitted to a good university. They test many subjects including all the basic subjects and languages such as Bengali, Mathematic, and English. And tests on optional subjects such as chemistry, biology, physics, and computer depending on what you’re aiming.

N =  Is Bengali your national language? Where are you from?

S = Yes it is. It is my 1st language. I am living in Bangladesh, but I was born in Saudi Arabia. My parents are from Bangladesh; they lived in Saudi Arabia for business reasons.  So, before when we were still living in Saudi Arabia, we came to Bangladesh for holidays only.  In 2003, my family made it official to move to Bangladesh.

N = So you are fluent in Arabic language too then?

S = No, not really. But I can read some. As you must know, lots of Bangladesh people lived in Saudi Arabia and there is a school for the Bengalis. Though, the school do not give any Arabic classes, so I learned to read and understand some of Arabic on my own.

N = What kind of differences are there between Saudi Arabia and Bangladesh?

S = Saudi Arabia is a much more developed country compare to Bangladesh.  They are very strict and tough with their laws and rules, and even go as far as killing people when they do crimes.  Saudi Arabia believes in capital punishment. Female have to wear a burka (a loose garment covering the entire body and having a veiled opening for the eyes), and if they don’t, they will get fined up to 500 Riyal (= US $ 133.33). The weather was very hot.  The heat can go up to more than 40 degree Celcius (= 104 degree Fahrenheit).

N = When you moved to Bangladesh, was it like a culture shock?

S = It was, but got used to it eventually, all my relatives live here so it feels good now.

N = In Sociotown, what activities do you like the most?

S = Mostly chatting with friends, boxing, catching bugs and roaming around on my scooter.

He then have to continue his study for his O’level exams. GOOD LUCK Nemo!

Behind the Keyboard - Craig75

Tuesday, November 9th, 2010

interview_03The other day, I was strolling around the town at night; all of the sudden, my face was caught by these shining lights that blinded my eyes.

As I walked closer to it, I notice it was Craig75’s suit of armor. So I asked if I can interview him, and he said yes!

Nadia = I understand you are from Canada? Have you been in the same country and city the whole time?

Craig75 = Yes, I’m from Canada but I don’t live in the same place as I was born. I had moved as far south in 2000 for work.

My home town and my family is still 8 hours away from me.

N = What do you do for a living?

c = I’m currently unemployed. I was a Farm Assistant and Technician but the farm industry is downsizing.

N = What do you have to do as a Farm Technician?

C = Well, the farm runs by computer, and I would have to install the program for the commands and the watering system schedule. I also have to do the repair in the computer and on field. Mostly on the computer though. When I have to do repair on field, it was only for gluing pipes together.

N = What kind of program did you use for it?

C = A special program from Denmark.  There is no specific name since there are a lot of them.

N = What is the schooling requirement for this type of job?

C = I have 2 diplomas, one for Electronic Engineer and the other for Technologist.

N = Since you are out of work, are you looking for the same type of job?

C = Anything.  Any kind of job that will support me and pays the bill, especially pays the mortgage. There are a lot of farms nearby, but at the moment, it is hard since there are only offering minimum wage.

N = What are your hobbies?

C = I like biking. My bike is my only transportation to commute, so I bike a lot. I like walking around the neighboorhood, and hiking.  I like being in nature.  I usually go hiking to the nearby national park either along or with my friends.

I also fishing in the summer.  Though I don’t eat the fish I caught because I don’t like the taste of it, so my buddy is the one who enjoys them.  I used to do camping too. However, it has been 5 years since I’ve done it.

N = Do you do these activities with your girlfriend as well?

C = No, I’m single.

So Ladies, if you are interested in Craig75, you can send him some love notes.  Starting NOW!
