    Hi. I'd like your opinion, especially if you're a current student in economics . I'm an international student and at the moment I'm very interested in the subject. I don't have very good grades in math, my best results are in written essays, mostly about social/political themes, though I'm a very analytical/practical person. I don't fancy arts too much or abstract subjects at all. I believe the reason behind my math and other scientific subjects grades to be the fact that I find it boring - to be fair, I've never really been a very studious person.

    I love history, as I love to analyze how society changes, the human behaviours and such. On the other hand, between the social sciences, the only one that I find actually useful and interesting is economics. The fact that I'd get to know how the world goes, how economies around the world affect every one of us really makes me want to study it. Again, though, I'm not entirely sure if it would be for me: is it just numbers? And even if it was, do you think I would enjoy it although I find what I'm currently studying in math (goniometry, logarithms.. high school modules, you know) pretty boring? Thanks in advance.
