I did well in math academically but it always took a ton (a ton) of work out of class.

History was the most fun and interesting subject. In fact, I regularly read the textbooks ahead of the class for fun.

French was fun but only because I had an "unfair" advantage over my peers since it was an english language school studying very basic French while I was a veteran from Quebec.

English literature was a mixed bag. Sometimes it was fun, other times very tedious depending on what we were reading. It was almost always CHALLENGING because the teachers wouldn't award you a high grade unless you were really really good at pulling out the most non-obvious interpretations for the stories we were reading. A ton of people had WAY BETTER instincts when it came to this sort of thing.

Sciences were on the whole outright nightmares (ESPECIALLY Chemistry). At least with Biology you could get away with rote memorisation but Chemistry was just extremely tricky for me. Not to mention whenever labs came up they were always THE WORST because my hands are very very clumsy and imprecise when it came to experiments. Physics was... always challenging.

I enjoyed Drama class and taking part in all of those plays.

Physical Education is a big capital letter YIKES. SOMEHOW I survived it.

High school art class was... not my thing... and I remember all of it being extremely challenging and difficult (in fact, it may have been even harder than the sciences). I had absolutely no confidence in myself and I resented the projects that we had to do.
I support the People’s Republic of China and the Hong Kong SAR government. I also support free trade, public healthcare, environmentalism, abortion rights and a global 3 day weekend policy.

I love maths! Mostly with the ones with logarithms and exponents. I have always been a big fan of calculus and trigonometry, and I will never get tired of them. :P

Statistics and Probability, ahh, that's not too bad, but I don't really like them. I really despise Algorithms, but considering the line of work that I am going for, I realised that you will need Statistics and Algorithms, lest your programs are either going to be inefficient, or you will fall out when you need to do something related to them.

An algorithm is just way of solving a problem. How can you despise that? And if, as you hint, you're going into IT, algorithms are about to be your life. Since the word comes from Al-Khwārizmī, a Persian scholar, who was from Khwarazm in what is now Uzbekistan, you could call them "uzbekis" or something, I suppose.

These are going to be my life, but yeah, I know what you mean. It's not so much on a complete hatred for the subject, but for the most parts, it's kinda... vague. I know there can be more than one way to a problem, but the questions, the ways to answer them, is not something you can do properly in an exam/paper format.

Maybe it's just me. :/

Vegas rules for 52 pick-up is pretty awful. You lose $500 no matter what. :lol:

(Also I would really love to go to LV one day... not to play and lose everything at the casinos, but I heard that it's quite an awesome place for pictures, or just to walk around.)

Las Vegas is pretty cool just for the extravagant buildings and people. I don't play blackjack or poker, just the slots and maybe roulette. If you plan ahead and get tickets to a show, even better. For a photographer, amateur or professional, it's an amazing banquet.

I have heard that. I tried it once but the casino got very funny because I wanted write down the cards being played. Luckily, I dropped a few names and was just asked to not do that anymore.

Nice to hear that. I am not sure when fate will take me to the States, but hey, one day! :D

I quite enjoy slots, so... maybe I will try that if I reach there, but of course, with limits. I can't play poker or blackjack for the life of me, so... I guess I will avoid that.

I would most likely explore the world after September 2020, or whenever I graduated. After graduation and before I work, I definitely need to see the entire world while I'm young.
