Focus: Maths, Chemistry, Physics. Anything involving numbers. Don't get me wrong, I can do them, but its always taken me so much extra effort to do well in those subjects. I got a B in Maths at GCSE, whilst putting 100% more effort into the subject than English literature, in which I got an A*. I did no work for English lit. Same happened at A level. I took Law, English Lit, History and Chemistry. I enjoyed Chemistry, but that made it even more annoying when I failed miserably at it. I'd put about 10% effort into English and Law, and came out with A's, yet with Chemistry, despite working my ass off to try and do well. I was getting everything from E's on a bad day to C's on a good day. Ended up scraping a C, but damn that was hard. Anti-Focus: English, like I said above. I love reading and writing, and English Lit just seemed to come naturally to me. I started my degree doing English, with a minor in Spanish because I'd studied it a few years before and enjoyed it. Never would have seen it coming, but I've now switched to a degree in Spanish and Catalan, with a few modules of Law thrown in for good measure. English at uni still came easily to me, but I didn't feel challenged at all, and I found myself falling asleep in lectures and wondering how being able to analyse bullshit poetry would ever help me find a job after uni. Spanish took more effort to do well in, but I figured a challenge would be good for me, and getting decent marks in Spanish after working hard for it is so much more rewarding than simply bullshitting my way through a 3 year English degree. Reckon I made the right choice though. Pretty awesome feeling when the hard work pays off and you find yourself being able to hold a full conversation in a foreign language. Plus, I'll be doing a 12 month internship in Argentina next year, provided everything goes to plan. Score!
