"Share something about your least favorite subject in high school."
HIGH SCHOOL!! The mere mention of these two words brought about a flood of memories. I love high school. If I could turn back time, I'd definitely go back to high school. Those four years of studying, joining clubs, goofing around, cheating on exams, making teachers cry, etc... Those are 4 of my most wonderful years.
Ah, anyway.. going back to the challenge. My least favorite high school subject? I have two - HISTORY and MATHS.
Yep! I really don't like History. Important dates, important persons, important life-changing events... Shesh!! So much to memorize, so many to remember, and only 4 years to learn 'em all? Justs to be clear, I don't HATE history. I just don't like it. Yes, I know that it's really necessary to know about these special events of the past. But back in high school, it was very hard for me to focus on History class. Names and dates seemed to pass by me like ghosts. Nothing seemed to sink in. But well, I still learned. It was difficult for me but I've dealt with it. Passed the subject, of course.
As of now, I'd have to admit that I still don't enjoy learning history. Learning history is a continuous process. I mean, everyday we make history, right? One day, it just dawned upon me.. that I'd have to know about my history, my family's history, my country's history... so that one day, I'd be able to answer my grandchild's questions, say... "Grandma? Who's our national hero? Why did he become a hero?". I wouldn't be at a loss for words.
Now, MATHS. I don't like studying Maths. Just like in History class, I couldn't focus. I tried.. but I just couldn't. I mean, what's the meaning of X? And why do I have to find the Y first, in order to get the value of X? And what's with the sine and cosine blah-blahs? Back then, I kept thinking if i do really need to learn these. I mean, buying something from a store, I'd just say.. "I wanna buy that one. How much?". Right? I wouldn't say "If Y is equal to 2, then how much is the value of X, because I wanna buy that?" LOL.
But now that I'm older, I finally understood why I had to go through hell, passing Maths. Harhar. Everyday, we deal with numbers. I'm quite grateful to my grade school, high school and college MATHS teachers for really making me understand mathematics. It was haarrdddd work, Im sure. Hahaha.
Well, that's that. Those two are my least favorite subjects back in high school. But now, I've learned to appreciate them. What about you..? What are your least favorite subjects?
