    Economics. I love the way the subject puts the way the world works in such a simple way. There's so much I didn't realise before - markets, decisions, why. I want answers to everything and I particularly want to know about our society, right now and how it works. For me, the answer to all that wisdom is through studying Economics. The great Economists have laid down the footpath and all you have to do is walk along it and gain knowledge. Understanding our society and the way the world works is so easy with Economics. And it's all politically related sometimes and politics is terribly yay!

    I adore it and I adore the social sciences in general. My perfect course would have political and economic history aspects. Happy sigh.

    I just pour it out from my heart. Sometimes they appreciate it and I do get quite passionate about things. With politics, I'm all fist slamming and yelling. Economics is more all frowning and "but hang on...oh my! That's so true! But what if..."
    This gets me hyper and uncomprehensible in speech though.

    Can I copyright the above? Just in case someone wants to work on their "Great subject - very interesting.blax3..etc / Great job prospects "

    Feel free...later on in life you could specialise in ready made templates to sell to lazy oxbridgers. oooh...look at the potential profit margins on that, you'd be a monopoly.

    Woah. I said to my Head of Chemistry "to be blunt, my marks in Chemistry have been dropping because it's the subject I care the least about."
