I don't play around. I quit school because of recess.
Civics, history, biology and especially, REDHEADS!
I liked General Business, Business Law, and Industrial Arts I-IV (I actually went back and taught IA for a couple of years). I cheated myself when it came to languages—I took advanced math classes instead of Spanish; that probably would have come in handy these days.
I was best at math, but I really enjoyed the industrial arts classes where I used my hands.
I didn't really like school.
Although I did chose an engineering high school. (The best in the country).
Since the subject matter was so wide ranging , it made it easy for me to later ace every USMC & Army school the military sent me to.
Like USMC "Auto/truck Mechanic"School" and "Atomic, Biological and Chemical Warfare School" and "Army flight training",
and even gave me enough engineering knowledge for my Wife and I to build our house,
but I have to admit, I did hate laying all those thousands of bricks
I always heard, "Education is wasted on the young".
Probably true, but not always.
None of it. But I will say that typing was the most useful skill I learned in HS. That, and Drivers Ed.
Shop and Vo-ag.
Looking back on school from old age, it occurred to me that the subjects that I enjoyed did not really help me much in later life.
The subjects that I hated, like grammar, creative writing, geography, etc were the things that actually made my life better.
My biggest regret is not taking Latin.
World war 2
Weight lifting class
Must have been 8th hour, I was there almost everyday.
I always enjoyed shop classes. For “serious” subjects, English was my favorite.
Art, Crafts and wood shop. tom.
My freshman year of high school, I took drafting and absolutely loved it, so I signed up for Drafting II for my sophomore year.
It was only myself and one other person so they canceled it.
Study hall was a favorite of mine.
I was fairly decent at math. Sucked at science.
****in hos and makin money!
Pledge of Allegiance
and everything in between
School was easy. Too easy maybe. And fun.
That was then...
Any of the shop class, home economics, science and history.
American History !!!
History and Industrial Arts, well, really wood shop and drafting. The last semester of drafting class we got to design and draw out all the plans for our "dream" house.
In High school Math and Science were majors
In College (yeah it was a college in those days) math and science were minors. I majored in Industrial Arts in College.
I never liked history much in school, but I have became a great fan of history as I get older. Something about 'doomed to repeat it'.
I also didn't like Civics in high school. But I wish Civics and History were emphasized more these days. And not the REVISIONIST HISTORY that is being taught these days.
