30-Day Favorites Challenge
12. Favorite class in school
Well, this one’s difficult, because I love learning (the studying part, maybe) and I enjoyed many of my classes when I was a student. And now that I’m working, I think I appreciate and love it more.
Elementary - English, because I was amused with all the irregulars like spelling (coffee, balloon, queue), plural form (child-children, goose-geese, moose-moose), and masculine/feminine form (aviator-aviatrix, duke-duchess, nephew-niece).
High School - Drafting (a part of 2nd year TLE and 4th year MAPEH). When I was a high school student in Tomas del Rosario College, we were really trained to be artsy-fartsy and creative, with all the poster-making sessions, street-dancing events, school performances, and other school requirements. I like drafting because it’s still artistic (mechanical drawing, yo) yet we all just follow one model and consequently challenged to produce the closest replicate we can with our Oslo paper, ruler, (mechanical) pencil, and attention to measurements/detail. Drating class is the reason I considered taking up architecture (I got accepted to the archi program of UST [part of the top 100], but ultimately took Environmental Science in the Ateneo).
College - Chemistry. It’s not an easy subject, but it’s the first subject where I felt my self improve, like something clicked, or like I was an evolving Pokémon. It didn’t matter that my high school chem was a bad foundation and Ateneo chem is the shiz, I absorbed all the chem stuff like a dry sponge. Luckily I quite excelled at the subject (otherwise it will not appear in this challenge), and it really helps me in my current work. Oh, and the lab part of chem is really my favorite!
