I was alwayd good in Norwegian and English (English being both a language class and a culture/literature class). I also enjoyed social studies.

I was not so good in maths (struggled quite a bit, really!).

I guess this shows in my choice of profession; I have a bachelor's degree with two majors (English language (media studies) and sociolinguistics) and a MA in culture studies (gender studies/sociology).

English/ literature, German (took in high school and college) & Social Scienes (whether it be psychology, anthropology, etc... I took most of them, even though I didn't "need" them!)

Conversely... Least favorite: any math or science!

I usually liked English (depending on the teacher) and I ended up loving Chemistry and Physics, but only because I really liked that teacher.

Geology and English - an odd mix - but it works somehow!

Math - not so much.

In elementary school, it was math, and come high school it was chemistry all the way! I loved my teacher. He taught our physics class, too, which I didn't really take to, so I'm sure that my chemistry love was the real deal, not just because of the teacher. Now english on the other hand...blech! And my AP Lit teacher was sooooooo horrid, that it is a surprise that I enjoy reading and writing so much now, if at all!

It's interesting how the ones that were often our faves were also our fave teachers.

Maths really wasn't my ting either.

Oh, dude! How could I have forgotten about math? I love math! Almost majored in it in university. I used to do derivatives in my dreams -- truly, I'd dream and do the whole equation and work and everything.
