The question for this week is: What was your favorite subject in high school and/or college?
Hmm. Overall, I loved school. I was admittedly quite unpopular, but my love of learning more than made up for any problems I had. So it isn't easy to pick a favorite subject. As a writer, English is an obvious answer for me. And it definitely tops the list of favorite subjects.
Still, in high school I also loved science, and in particular, my anatomy and physiology class. I loved coloring the many diagrams of the human body. I actually enjoyed memorizing the names and locations of all the bones and muscles, though I'm admittedly rusty on the subject now. Perhaps I would have even become a doctor if I wasn't too scared of the idea of making a mistake and accidentally killing someone.

In college, I majored in writing and philosophy, and I loved those classes. I even took two classes specifically about science fiction, and those were obviously two favorites for me. Yet I also have to mention that during my freshman year, my major was astronomy. That year, I enjoyed my introductory astronomy class so much it was ridiculous. There was also a lab for that class, which means I got class credit for looking through a telescope. How cool is that? Alas, at the end of that year I changed my major because my college level physics classes and Calculus 3 were not quite so nice to me. Oh well! It was good experience anyway, and I still thoroughly enjoy amateur astronomy.
