Nothing was easy for me in college. Everything took work.

I majored in sociology and LOVED it. I was happy reading all those articles but absolutely HATED With a Passion writing essays.

I got an A in college speech. I'm actually good at public speaking even though I'm really quiet.

I loved Spanish in junior high and high school. It was so easy because Spanish is so close to English. Sadly, I never used it and despite 6 years of it, I still can't speak it and can't understand it, and can only remember a few words. I'm a huge "If you don't use it, you lose it" person. I forget everything I don't use.

Interesting. I'm the opposite. English is my first language and Cantonese is my second language.

I cannot figure out Cantonese grammar for the life of me. I used to watch interviews of HK celebrities on YouTube to learn the rhythm of the language and pick up some grammar & vocabulary, and I speak it every day at work because my co-workers are all HK immigrants, but I have no idea if my grammar is correct (probably not), and one co-worker told me I leave out a bunch of words. Well, what do you expect? I have no idea what the parts of speech in Cantonese is, so I have no idea what I'm saying. It's like when an HK immigrant speaks English, they leave out a bunch of words too.

Metal shop. Because it's a hands on education with trial and error. You learn and you go and your progress in metal shop would be self evident through your proficiency in metal working skills.

Math. It's one of the more universal subjects IMHO. Having said that, though, a bad math teacher can set a kid back really far or even destroy any love for the subject entirely.

English, literature, creative writing--anything involving reading or the written word was a cakewalk for me.

The sciences also came easy for me and were some of my favorite classes.

When I got to college, I also found that I enjoyed psychology and sociology.

Geometry and physics came fairly easily but the funny thing about math is that algebra bedeviled me and I had a rough time with it.
