Least Favourite Subject

You guys are going to laugh, because my answer to this is slightly ironic.

My least favourite subject of all time has to be English or the majority of English courses I’ve taken.

Why, you ask? Well…it’s complicated.

I’ve never really liked the very rigid formatting most English courses require for papers. I understand it prepares you for academic writing, but I always felt constrained by it. It’s part of the reason I have this blog because I need to balance my academic papers with something more creative.

I’ve also never really liked the fact that to do well in English courses, you have to tear apart books to find meaning, symbols, and what not. There were some books we did that to that I honestly felt bad for after we’d analysed every page.

I do give English courses credit for two things: That they expose you to amazing literature, and it they help with general writing and analytical skills. Both are important tools to have in your back pocket when you head off to post-secondary.

Anyways, here I am, with English as my least favourite subject, writing on a blog as an escape from all my other schoolwork. Yay!
