I don’t really have fond memories of school, my favourite classes were English and Art.
The ones I hated were metalwork and woodwork…everything I tried to build turned out really wrong. Also hated technical drawing.

Favourite- wthout a doubt Philosophy and ethics, I am enjoying that so much at the moment, really makes you think,

Least Favourite- Chemistry, I do not seem to be able to grasp chemistry at all, I also have the scariest teacher who seems to derive pleasure from making others miserable, oh and P.E, running around in the freezing cold playing hockey, cold, wet and miserable

anya I think that describes most teachers who have been in the job for a while, they suddenly think they are the boot camp sargent from Full Metal Jacket.

Favourite: History 216. For non-college professor types, it's the history of England up to 1688. And NO, I didn't take it because Andrew lives in England, I took it because it was either 216, or 212, which is Canadian "history". *gags* I already know all I need to know about my country's history. How often can one learn that John A. Macdonald was a drunk? (but he was the best prime minister that Canada's ever had ) Anyway, it turns out that I've been pleasently surprised about it, and I absolutely LOVE my history class.  

Most Hated: Economics. I want to burn my textbook. I hate it, I hate it, I hate it!!!! I don't CARE about what a national survey tells us about the nations economy. The only reason I'm taking it is cause I need a math. Great math, I think I've used math once... and that was to calculate how many minutes left in class. Why do I hate it so? Because I got really really sick, and couldn't make myself get up for a 9 o'clock class for 3 to 4 weeks. We were still on the same chapter when I went back to class that we were on before I got sick. Anyway, that's my vent for now. Don't take Economics, if you value your sanity.

I'm only in high school...pity me. ^^;

Favorites: Chem (although there has been quite a few...err...incidents in that class. ^^) and Spanish. A long time ago, when I took art, art was definately a favorite, but for .5 credits, all that work wasn't worth it. I draw during my sparetime now. ^_^ World issues is a good class. VERY interesting. ^_^;

Neutral: English, Physics (my lowest mark right now, but the teacher's grunting amuses me)

Least: Well, I'm getting a good mark in Math, but I still dun like it. Canadian histor- z z z -_-;

I'm going to try and get into AP Bio next year...though it's pretty much impossible. I'll have to bribe the admin. XD Shh. Planning on going into Forensics, so I kind of need bio.

I absolutely HATE math. The last class I went to, I spent my time planning the demise of the person who made Math 11 a requirement. I'll spare you the gory details.
I also dislike CAPP. If there was ever a course that was a waste of time, it's CAPP. Bah.

I love English, except I don't like the class I'm in. They're teaching us language, because a few people don't know what a comma is for. *sigh* But I do like the course, generally. It will get better. I hope.

/jen/
