    Ah but doesn't natural science stem from mathematics, we'd be nowhere without maths.
    Yes, math included, but I was drunk anyway, so you can just forget this statement if you want to...

    Psychology- I guess it's partly because I want to find how everything fits together to make us what we are and how that can be influenced.
    It's not mind reading but more like finding patterns in behaviour and considering why they happen. I just find it fascinating.
    French-It's a beautiful language and the country and culture are interesting. Good for job prospects too. :-)

    hispanic studies. because spain's a fascinating country and has spawned a language which is one of the most widely spoken across the globe. and also cos it's the only thing i actually have a vague scraping of talent in. i may be doing a couple of modules in criminology or sociology or psychology to amuse myself only. translators do earn quite a bit as well, and then there's the whole bonus of being practically bi-lingual which is useful for holidays if nothing else (employers like it too). added to the fact that i'm planning to emigrate to south america at some point in my life.

    Philosophy because it takes everything that I find interesting about other subjects at their basic level. Plus ontological angst keeps me awake at night and I really should do something about that.

    Lol, yeah, I don't think I've encountered one person on my travels to Maths interviews and open days that has a reason for studying Maths besides, "I like it and I'm good at it" ... myself included!

    It's because you like the subject and don't only do the three years to get a good job or whatever.

    Journalism because since I was little I have loved writing. I had aspirations at the age of three to be April O'Neill from the Turtles.
    The reason I'm taking Journalism rather than English or History though is because since I started Secondary school I went a bit...loco.
    I was always top of my class until year 8 my mom got cancer and nearly died, then I found pot...then pills...then speed...then coke. By the time I realised what a fudge up I was being (year 11) my mum then caught pneumonia and was again hospitalised and was drinking and becoming violent, I got severely depressed and tried to commit suicide and wrist bashed.
    I got OK GCSE grades and went onto college. I got a D in AS English language because the teacher hated me and the course wasn't what I'd expected it to be.
    I then fooled around a bit more with drugs and now I have a bunch of boring C's and that is why I'm taking Journalism.

    Betcha didn't expect all that?
