quick english question!

what do you feel when you read fiction in 1st person pov in present tense? the thing is, i want to write a short story and i dont know which tenses i should use. since i use 1st pov, i feel strange when i use past tense (but it's common in novels, isnt it?) does it irked you when you read 1st pov in present tense? and fyi my native language is indonesian, and we have no tenses(?) whatsoever, and so i'm confused. help please? thank you.
