Ice Breaker – Back To School

Each week on The Stretched Blog, we ask an ice breaker question.  The questions are designed to help us get to know each other here in The Stretched Community.  I’ll provide my answer to the question here in the post, and then you can leave your response in the comments.  While you’re in the comments section, see how others answered the ice breaker question.

This week’s question is inspired by the return to school.

Question:  What was your favorite school subject?

My Answer:  Okay, I’ll be a bit of a geek here.  I loved math, and I still do.  From the time they taught us how to add to one digit numbers all the way up to learning differential equations during my engineering studies at Grove City College,  I have enjoyed math.  Now, most of my math involves punching numbers into spreadsheets, balancing the checkbook, and analyzing financial data for my department.  It’s still fun when there are numbers involved.  While I don’t perform integrations and derivations any longer, the skills I learned in my math courses especially through high school and college prepared me for where I am today.  (As for my second favorite subject, it’s probably gym or science.)

There you have it – my answer.  Now, it’s your turn.  Answer this week’s ice breaker question by leaving a comment.  I look forward to reading your response!
