A Question for You
Saturday, May 15th, 2010

Since I will be on the road today heading to Little Rock for my RWA chapter meeting, I will leave you with a question…

What was the most interesting course you ever had in school?
On the other hand, what was the most boring?

I will be back later to see your answers. Enjoy your Saturday! ~DD

    My favorite classes in high school were choir and electronics.

    The one class I thought was really boring was Literature when the teacher started to cover poetry. It really was not the subject that I was bored with. It was the teacher. When someone asks me my opinion about something and then tells me that I’m wrong, then I tend to tune out the class and start thinking about other things. (also did not care about chemistry that much either.

    My Fave was english because am a book worm, always have been and always will. Boring, lets see, I will have to say Home Eco. It made no sense to me :)

    By the way DD I am going through a DD Book faze. I am systematically buying and reading all of your books that I have missed lately. Now that I have the sony reader I am enjoying them to the max.

    My most interesting class in school is a toss up: I majored in Peace and Conflict Resolution at Kent State University (at the time one of only two programs in the US for this study: May 4th 1970 was the inspiration). All of those classes were interesting: Ghandi, King, AA Milne (Winnie the Pooh got all Milne’s pacifistic tendencies :) Norway’s non violent resistance to the Nazi invasion … Can you tell I liked them? LOL; I also took Greek and Latin suffixes/prefixes; learning the origin of so many words was fascinating!
    I know, I”m a geek:)
    Hated? ANY Math course!!!

    The most interesting class I took in school was Physical Agents. I got to learn how temperature, illumination from light sources, vibration and noise levels affect the body and their significance in different work environments.

    Dennis! The best literature teachers encourage a student to interpret a work for themselves. Wonder what that teacher would think about what you write now!

    Rasha! Never took Home Ec. Thought that if I did that I’d be doomed to be a housefrau. The same reasoning had me skipping typing because I was afraid I’d end up someone’s secretary. And yay on the reading spree. Hope you enjoy it!

    Rachel! Interesting! During Middle and High school I took Latin—four years of it—and loved it. It helped build my English vocabulary and comprehension because I learned the orgin and meanings of so many root words. Languages were always my favorite classes along with ancient world history. Loved Latin, Spanish and German. HATED government and American history.

    Natalie! I wish I’d loved science a little more. I could sure use it when writing the futuristics and the short steampunk I’m attempting now.
