Friday Five

1. Are you going to school this year?

I'm taking "classes" in stuff that interests me, but I'm not going "to school".

2. If yes, where are you going (high school, college, etc.)? If no, when did you graduate?

I got my BS in 1994.

3. What are/were your favorite school subjects?

They were the computer classes, mostly.

I've diversified and grown a bit since then.

4. What are/were your least favorite school subjects?

They were the poorly taught "humanities" style classes.

I used to think I didn't like the subject. Now I see I just didn't like how they were presented when they were required classes. Making the subject required did the same damage to the field that having an established church has done to church attendence in Europe.

5. Have you ever had a favorite teacher? Why was he/she a favorite?

Yes. His philosophy of instruction was to make the material available, and then get the hell out of the way.
