My favorite school subject is probably English. I have a couple of favorites. I like Spanish, History, and English. Those ones I like. I'm more of the, what we call, "the humanities", than math and science... isn't really my forte.

English, I really enjoy because I really find the written word beautiful, and I like getting wrapped up in different stories. And I really enjoy reading. Especially really quality novels that have been time-tested, what we call "the classics." Usually, released so far, I've mostly been exposed to American authors and American literature. However, I have read some authors that are from different areas, like Germany, and everything. But most of the novels I've read, are novels that were originally printed in English.

And I'm good at writing, and I'm good at understanding novels and themes and such, so that's part of the reason why I really like English. Because it comes easily to me and it's my native language.
