Huh, why's your politics class like that?

Science all the way. Hardly any of my friends were in my class and the amount of after school sessions I had to attend was horrible.

It has nothing to do with politics science. I guess the authority wants it to be exactly a brainwashing process about Socialism with Chinese Characters, talking about how we have "the superior democratic system" and a profound culture. Huh, I'm sick and tired of hearing things from uptight, shortsighted, narrow-minded hypocrites...

(Hope you wouldn't be bothered by my cynical complaint, but I feel I have to speak it out. )

As a subject? PE.

This year? Math.

However, my worst teacher ever was an English/History teacher. I used to love English, but she ruined it for me. Now my favorite subject is History.

Love one another.

I hated PE. I was always more of a book person.

You have to remember that sometimes we forget you're posting from China. A cynical complaint from someone who lives in a one-party state about how balanced their teaching of politics of is understandable. How you're taught politics would be illegal in most of the countries others here are posting from.

I'd forgotten you're posting from China myself, and almost asked the same question as QM.

Ah, I'd forgotten you were posting from China. Yeah, I don't blame you at all if that's the case. The A Level politics course I take here in the UK is pretty good as to being informative and impartial, but it only details UK and US politics, so I would be interested to hear more about how different systems function.

Thanks for your concern, RN and QM. I didn't emphasize on my nationality, now it seems that I should've explained. I don't wanna sound somehow "special", but yeah, I'm in a special environment indeed.

My least favorite subject is, and has pretty much always been, P.E. (I would absolutely drop it if I could, but at my school it's mandatory every year, unless you play sports, which I don't). My teacher this year has some...well...interesting ideas about health. She thinks that if you have, say, a hurt ankle, the best way to make it heal faster is to exercise on it anyway. She uses the same concept for sickness, and actually moved the mile a week early during flu season because she thought it would make us get better faster, which is completely ridiculous. And she constantly reminds us that she went through some kind of medical training, so she must know all about  what's healthy and what's not. I honestly don't know why she hasn't been fired yet.

That's not healthy! You should bring a doctor's note with you if you're sick/hurt, then she can't say no, right?

That's the one good thing about my PE teacher-- if you're hurt or sick or otherwise indisposed, you just have to tell him and he'll say "That's okay, you can walk."

What's your zodiac sign? (traditional Western astrology)

(I'm mildly obsessed with astrology right now. I know it's unscientific, but it's still fascinating.)

I'm Aries and very proud of it. a-hard-days-night-john-1

If we're talking about the well-known Zodiac signs I'm a Virgo. If you're talking about Starr Shine's I'm a Leo.

Yes, I was talking about the well-known Zodiac signs. Based on my readings, while they may not be astronomically correct, the correlation between certain signs and personality traits is fairly accurate. I have a lot of what we call Aries traits, but Pisces not so much, even though technically I'd be Pisces under the new system.

Libra, the scales, born one day off from the cusp of Scorpio. And indeed, I'm often weighing one thing against another, as Libras supposedly tend to do. (Like most people tend to do tbf.)

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

Everyone does all of the things, it's just that some do them more than others. (If that makes any sense.) I tend to err on the side of impulsivity most of the time, but that doesn't mean I can't stop and deliberate, it's just that I often don't. ahdn_george_06 (Aries is the opposite of Libra. My mother is Libra. We have an interesting relationship. a-hard-days-night-john-6)

To be fair, all the Zodiac traits are overgeneralized so they'll apply to as many people as possible. And yet I still know people who are practically the exact opposite of their Zodiac-- a friend of mine is the least Aries-like person you'll ever meet, and her sign is Aries, so...

Love one another.

I'm a modern Pisces or an old Aquarius. 

I don't know what that means though.

True -- it's general patterns of behaviour rather than specific things, and there are always exceptions. I have a Capricorn friend who, upon people learning his birthday, always causes people to say, 'Wait , you're a Capricorn?! No way!' Also, there are a lot of other factors besides the Sun sign, which I don't fully understand because I'm not that into it.

Aries in both systems. a-hard-days-night-john-1

A description I just found (thank you Google)

Aries loves to be number one, so it’s no surprise that these audacious rams are the first sign of the zodiac. Bold and ambitious, Aries dives headfirst into even the most challenging situations (which is appropriate, since the body part associated with Aries is the head). Like their fellow fire signs, Leo and Sagittarius, Aries is a passionate, motivated, and confident leader who builds community with their cheerful disposition and relentless determination. 

Aries is a cardinal sign that kicks off not only the spring season but also the entire zodiac wheel. Astrologers believe that each sign learns the lessons absorbed by its preceding signs, both joyful and painful. In the case of Aries, however, there is no inherited wisdom: Aries leads with blind optimism, barreling through life with an electric joie de vivre that perfectly complements their distinctive impulsivity. These fire signs think after they leap, which often results in lessons learned the hard way. Aries represents the singular spirit (while Aries’s opposite sign, Libra, symbolizes partnership). These rams adhere to an “every person for themselves” philosophy. While this self-determination can be inspiring, Aries needs to watch out for selfish tendencies.

I might also add: impatient, forthright, over-endowed with ideas and opinions, and a bit egotistical/self-absorbed.

I'm allegedly Sagittarius, but I'm pretty much the opposite in a lot of ways. I'm the least extroverted person ever, I do not like change, I'm not particularly openminded, and I'm not optimistic at all. My birthday (December 10th) now falls into Ophiuchus, which seems to match my personality more. I'm not very familiar with or attached to this kind of thing, though (after all, you don't need a horoscope or a microscope to see the mess that you're in a-hard-days-night-george-10).
