The subject I liked the least in my school life was history and interestingly I love to read history-related books a lot these days and this subject has helped me quite a lot in my life.

History was a mandatory subject throughout my academic years in school and somehow I felt very less passionate about this subject at that time. After I reached my university level, I started reading some storybooks that were related to historical events in our continent and that grew a great passion in me regarding history. I should probably add that History channel is my most favourite TV channels as it shows some great programmes which are not only interesting but also great sources of knowledge and information. The main reason I like history nowadays is because of my career as a journalist and the valuable lessons the history can offer us. I believe that histories were made by our ancestors and we could always learn from their great actions and mistakes to make this world a better place to live in.

I did not like history as a subject in school probably because the teachers failed to present this subject in an interesting way or I was too much interested in subjects like math, chemistry and physics. I was partially responsible for the lack of my interest in this subject as I did not try to get deeper inside it and I read very few books related to history by then.

The history shaped the world we live in now and every single event in history has a great influence to change the world that we see now. From this regards, I took this subject seriously and the valuable lessons I learned from it changed my life. For instance, after reading so many books related to wars, I have decided not to get involved in any kind of quarrel with others as quarrels, wars, selfishness can only bring catastrophes. I also learned about the greatest people in human history and how their hard work, determination and willingness have made them the exemplary persons in the worlds and how they contributed towards a better world. The things I learned from history books and from other sources helped me a lot as a writer in my personal and professional life. I would say the contribution of history, as a subject or interest, has a great effect on my life.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing, isn’t it?  Sometimes over time you come to completely change your mind about something, even though you never could have imagined you would.  It’s the same for me a subject I spent some time studying when I was younger, and I absolutely loathed it.  Now, I realise that subject – or more accurately skill – is one of my strongest assets, it has definitely helped me in life, in more ways than I could possibly have realised at the time.

So I’ll explain what the subject is, what I think about it now and why … together with how that’s changed from when I was first learning it, and then I’ll try and explain how it has helped me in life, but that could take a while!

Strictly speaking, this wasn’t a topic I learned at school, but after I left it.  I enrolled at a local college because they were offering a free ‘Intensive Secretarial Course’ and at the time I didn’t have a job so I thought it would be something worthwhile to learn whilst I was doing some volunteering and looking for proper work.  The course was many years ago, believe it or not, this was before the internet, and even before networked computers!   The course covered typing and shorthand, and also how to lay out business letters properly.  Truthfully, I never got the hang of shorthand.  The lessons were after lunch and after a few weeks, I stopped going to those sessions as I found that ‘accidentally on purpose’ they clashed with my volunteering…  I did however, persevere with typing.  Now I can touch type with ease, far faster than I could write anything, and just as fast as I can think.  I don’t know that I ‘like’ it exactly, it has become as natural to me as breathing.  I just couldn’t imagine being without this skill, it is so, so useful.

Why didn’t I like studying it at the time?  Where to begin.  It was just so boring and repetitive.  What’s more, I learned how to type using a manual typewriter, banging out nonsensical phrases on what would now seem to

I must admit that when I was in high school, I wasn’t among the brightest of the students. But, it was even more so when it came to learning mathematics. In fact, I didn’t just dislike the subject but also dreaded it for the most part back then.

Of course, I tried really hard to improve my mathematical skills by spending a significant amount of time on learning this subject, but unfortunately, the more I was trying, the more it felt like the same. I couldn’t blame my mathematics teachers either for my poor performance on this subject because, to tell the truth, they also tried their best to teach me the subject.

Anyway, I and my parents tried really hard to find out the reasons behind such poor mathematical skills, but we couldn’t really manage to come up with any tangible reasons for that back then. In fact, as I come to think of it now, I guess we weren’t just smart enough to find out the reasons, to begin with, back then, after all, we were not experts in this regard.

But, as far as exactly why I didn’t like mathematics, I guess, it’s simply because I didn’t have the proper foundation in this hard subject which was much needed for success. Besides, it is also very much possible that I considered math as the collection of some abstract and irrelevant figures that were really boring and thus also difficult to understand. By the way, I still don’t like mathematics (even though, I eventually got little better in it), but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it didn’t help me in life.

In fact, it is because of learning mathematics that I have somewhat acquired the power of reasoning in order to prevent chaos in my life. Besides, it also has nurtured the much-needed daily problem-solving abilities in me, like how much empty space my living room should have after arranging all the furniture in it, or how fast I need to drive to beat the morning traffics.
