    I was so good with all the humanities. English lit classes and philosophy were my best subjects (and my undergrad majors). I was bad at science classes because I thought I should be. Now, at 39, I'm loving them!

    Prep - I was good at reading, spelling, but horrible in math. Had to get tutoring in math.
    high school - Was pretty good at Literature and French, but struggled with Biology and Chemistry. I also hated phys ed, except when we were swimming.
    College - Pretty average, no standout subjects but sucked at anything science

    I'm good in my head and on paper but stagger and stammer when trying to talk...in socialsettings this doesn't happen. I'm a vibrant storyteller...but if I have to deliver a talk on technical jargon and smart stuff I'm toast. :)

    I was given permission to stop coming to classes in my 5th year so it's a miracle I got any GCSE's at all, can't say I did that well though.
    If you notice thing's like bad grammar that's be why. (I also was very late with literacy skills). Just a bit of additional, pointless info. there. My grandmother said I was 'special', I wonder now what she really meant.

    I forgot two subjects, I was pretty good with music in high school if the recorder counts as a significant musical instrument. Speech was my strength in elementary and high school. I guess it's probably not surprising then why I ended up in something related to that field.

    I had a friend who was like a bit of a man/father figure in my life. I had a great cleaning job - every Saturday I'd go and clean for him, I got £10 an hour and mostly drink coffee, smoked cigarettes and got to bitch about everything in my life. One day I went to his house as usual and he had been murdered. (Random, drug addict knife attack...thankfully I didn't find the body as the police were already there). My father had died the year before quite suddenly ..so it was all a bit much. I wasn't learning a lot at school at that stage anyway, there was too much going on at home. I was already truanting anyway.

    It's a shock when someone you know dies....your Father died then when you were really young. I'm so sorry this happened. 5th year - how old were you?..And then your friend murdered..Gosh, a lot for a young person to take in. It must have been a really hard 2 years or so.

    My dad died when I was 14. It was sudden and unexpected. I only met him a handful of times although my parents had married. I won't say how- it's a bit personal. But I do remember thinking I might never smile ever again. Weirdly enough when I was 18 I au paired for some children in Spain and the mother of the kids died of pneumonia while I was there. I started getting a bit paranoid then...truly it was quite intense.

    That's so hard - for both you and the children you au paired for. It is unusual...and then you were married for 10 years?

    No no no...I left home at 16 (nearly 17) and then went and lived with my dodgy boyfriend...then I escaped from that situation and have been living on my wits ever since (never married).

    I must have already left home when I did the au pair thing.

    Did you ever marry? Or have you been more of a loner like me?
    Anyway I'm not going to derail this thread anymore- just wanted to ask that.

    No, engaged once but never married. I've had a long term relationship but have never been interested in tying any knots.

    Never
    In no order, but as I recall...

    Primary/Elementary: I can't remember too well. Art for certain though.

    Secondary (Years 8-10):
    Best: Food Technology (i.e. cooking), Woodwork, Visual Art, English, Religion
    Good but not best: Humanities and Science in general
    Worst: Maths, Physical Education (quite liked it though), Physics.

    At this point these were all subjects I chose...

    Secondary (Years 11-12):
    Best: Visual Art, English, Religion, Maths (only because it was the easier of the tertiary bound courses!)
    Good but not best: Human Biology
    Worst: History (not bad, but worse in comparison with my other subjects)

    Tertiary:
    Best: Theology, Ethics based Philosophy, Psychology, Ancient Language
    Good but not best: Social Justice (I did a minor in it! The units are somewhat what you'd expect, but somewhat not. It was before the term Social Justice was a 'big thing'. I was certainly the odd ball doing it, with totally different views - silently held - to the rest. It was worthwhile though).
    Worst: Philosophy (alright really, but certainly marks are less when compared to the above - I enjoy it greatly though).
