Did you enjoy PE class in school? What were your favorite classes?
Heck no, I didn’t enjoy PE. I was a lazy slug even back then! I don’t know that I truly enjoyed much of school. I loved learning, but being smart got you ridiculed by the other kids. Then you got into a feedback loop of the teachers telling you they don’t understand why you’re not applying yourself, and mercilessly teased by horrible mean children on the bus. So I hear.
I liked art, I liked drama. Nobody’s art was “wrong”, and in drama class you didn’t have to be yourself. I liked Concert Chorus, the year I took that in high school. Didn’t like PE. Didn’t like math. Liked science but didn’t want to appear that I did. I took a geology class in college that was entirely too much fun, it was hardly like taking classes at all. Also in college I liked my anthropology and humanities classes. But grade school? Middle? High school? Ugh.
