Darling Husband and I spent the weekend watching Band Of Brothers on HBO… And I must say– we were both so moved! Part of our love of documentaries or mini series is that we are both total history nerds buffs. So much so, that it perplexes me when people say they hated studying history in school. Math? Total bore. Science? A little better… What was your favorite subject in school ( HS or college) to study?

I LOVED Band of Brothers so much in highschool, I now own the whole series and watch it all the time. Honestly, I hated school but out of all of them, I did love learning about WW2. I would probaby have to go with history as well.

In high school my favourite was accounting, and i also enjoyed english, now I am in university and did a degree in english literature and writing, finished that now am doing a degree in commerce, so at university level i enjoyed english more. I got to read books I wouldn’t have otherwise, and I LOVE reading (not ebooks though – HATE them with a passion)

I chose history, but english was a close second.

Math or Sciences. I hated anything history or english related. I avoided them like the plauge in college and did those classes over the summer at another school so that they wouldnt bring down my GPA.

I REALLY loved the sciences, but I also liked literature and history as well.
In college it has been the sciences. Microbiology was my absolute favorite class.

I loved english in HS, particularly writing. I’ve really lost interest in it now, and english classes have been some of the biggest pains in college. It’s still easy for me, but it’s so time consuming. It was so much more enjoyable when I had next to nothing else going on in HS. I also love history, but I’m extremely picky when it comes to what type. I love Roman history for example, but American history puts me to sleep. My least favorite is math by a mile. I hate it.

Wow… I’m sooo in the minority here… I HATED english and literature (love reading and writing just hated having to conform to what the teacher ‘thought’ the author was saying and over analysing every word and period) and social studies was easy and boring.. but I LOVE LOVE LOVED all of my math and science classes! My favorite was AP Biology (even though I ended up majoring in civil engineering in college)

I was into English, which makes sense because I write for a living now. But I’ve always loved history — my dad was a social studies/history/government teacher, so I grew up under his influence. 🙂

The arts were definitely my favorite, and I would group english and literature in with that. I also really loved history, but a lot of my history teachers were really mean, so it was hard to stay passionate about it. I got my BA in theatre performance, but part of me wishes I would have gotten my BA in history, or at least minored in it. Actually, what I wish I would have done was either a theatre or history major with a teaching concentration so I wouldn’t be stuck at my current job. When I was a senior in high school, my mom said “Just get a 4 year degree. Companies won’t care what it’s in, as long as you have a 4 year degree.” That was in 2006. By the time I graduated from college in 2010, this was no longer true. If I knew then what I know now, I would have gotten a degree I could actually use.

Sciences, particularly the ones that involve people like bio and anatomy (high school) or pathophys (college).

I am amazing in English. Always have been. My papers are phenominal for all being written last minute. However, I hated English. Mostly because I hated being forced to read and write about things I didn’t want to.
Me and math though? I wasn’t the best at it but I loved it! I loved the puzzles that math problems created.

@Mrs Hedgehog: you sound like me… I’m fairly good at writing (when I actually sit down and think about it) and I always scored really high on reading comprehension tests.. BUTTTTTTT I hated being forced to do it. AND I always wrote my papers last minute. I found out the easiest way for me to actually read the books we needed to in class was to get the list from the teacher in the beginning of the year so I could actually enjoy the books before I had to rip them apart and ruin the book.
