    Math --> English --> Science --> History

    I absolutely loved math...until I took a calculus class that started at 7:30 a.m. (I started as a math major in college and changed it once I hit that calc. class)

    I really didn't like English in high school, but when I got to college it was one of my favorite classes.

    I've never liked sciences (although I did enjoy chem. because it's very math-based)

    History was always a boring to me... meh.

    woah that was really pretty crappy of your parents. my final semester of pe i joined "partners pe" which was where i had to go help the mentally and physically disabled kids do all the physical activities. I even got to go to the special olympics and my partner won first place in like 5 events, that was really cool. I felt really bad for most of the kids, because a lot of the losers i went to school with would constantly mock them. it was horrible. My partner had turrets syndrome, he was normal in every other way possible. He wasn't even any trouble when he took his medication,and i didn't see a real reason for him to be in there. He hated it and it really did lower his self esteem so i'm sorry you had to go through that!

    Math is far and away my favorite. Science isn't terrible, I like working problems, but I'm not very good at labs. English is farcicle. I'm a good writer so I say as many proposterous things as I can to see if the teacher will justify them for me and give me an A. I have not yet failed. History is terrible for me. I don't understand it, and I am annoyed that I have to learn it. I have no interest in it at all. My worst grades have been in history.

    I hate it when people tell me that I am ridiculous for not liking history. I am always annoyed when I have to take a history class. I prefer to think about the future and not dwell on the past. I know history is supposed to give us insight into where we came from and how it happened, but it's counterproductive in my way of life.

    Keep in mind, I also consider archeology and paleontology history -- and they are both also more abstract.

    History and science are generally not very abstract. Every science class I was in was mostly memorizing just as many facts as history.

    English was easily my least favorite. Math, Science, and history in class may or may not have been interesting, but these were areas that I would read about or otherwise learn about outside of school, and most of any boredom or disinterest in these types of classes would be due to already knowing the information, or having an easier time picking it up at home.

    For why English is my least favorite: When writing, it seemed like I would write some papers, make some adjustments here and there so that it seemed ot be written pretty well, than I'd get it back with lots of red all over it, and I never really got what the problems were. (this got dealt with in high school, I was still not that good with papers as I was with other stuff, but could handle them pretty well.)

    A lot of the books were pretty boring to read, and even with more interesting ones, there were a lot of small detail questions asked that were really pointless to understanding the story and the characters. (I don't need to know who color shoes someone was wearing to know why they were attacked another person, for a purely hypothetical example.) A lot of the "great literature" seemed kind of like glorified soap opera, with people making decisions that did not make much sense, or seem to fit with how I see people acting around me. (In 9th, 10th, and 11th grade, probably half of what I read was interesting, in other grades it was maybe 20-40% depending on grade, this would be based on averaging out how medium, bad, or good the books were, plus the size of them.)

    The "meanings and themes" of stories also seemed pretty pointless in a lot of cases, I didn't really seem to learn anything from them except how to write about meanings and themes. I was quite glad at not having to take a literature course in college, for all the reasons described above.


    For people in other countries, the U.S. "english" courses are equivalent to some other "Literature" and/or "writing" ones, not to language ones except in earlier grades, though later ones did have some new vocabulary being taught.

    I voted History even though I think History is fascinating. I simply love all of the subjects. I'm at least glad to be seeing that there is not a huge majority of votes for Math. I can't count the number of times I've heard someone tell me that they hate Math.

    I liked PE. I was not the best athlete by any stretch of the imagination, but I was faster than most kids and definitely more physically coordinated than most of my nerdy friends (still have issues with bike-riding, however).

    That pretty much seals it for me. My counselor was grasping for straws when he suspected I could have Asperger's.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.
