Last year of high school, although I'm been home schooled now for the last few months and just going in for the exams.

After that I'm going to train in music production.
Trying to get some money for my together to finish off my studio.

My favorite subjects are English, Music and P.E ( Which is mainly studying exercise science.)

I agree with Lee, my school sucks too. The education system sucks altogether to be honest.

High Schoo favorite subject was history, left with the intention of joining the Marines , which didn't work out. Since then it's been a long and winding road with a whole lot of school and being in EMS/Nursing I'm not finished yet. Which as I'm 40 drives my wife nuts as she went and believes in the traditional route and got her bachelors right after high school.


I Started working on my associates in law enforcement right out of high school, with the intention of becoming a police officer. Left that for a bit when I got my first EMT class done and moved to Mass., ended up with a kid on the way and needing to get more dough so I took a Licensed Practical Nurse class and got the certificate with the intention of getting of my R.N. quickly . I then moved back to Rhode Island, and finished my Law Enforcement associates and started working on my bachelors in Justice studies. Somehow at this point I thought it would be a good idea to join the National Guard so since 2004 to last September , I picked up a bunch of Military Schooling, holding MOS's: 13 B, cannon crew-member, 15Tand 15U: Blackhawk and Chinook Mechanic, and last but not least 68W , Army Healthcare specialist aka Combat Medic.


Moving to New York in 2004 set me on my current path, as I left EMS to do nursing I let EMT lapse . Shortly after moving to Long Island I joined the local volunteer fire dept. and got to do a fire academy. Which strangely engough led me back to EMS as most of my departments calls are medical I would end up being a pack mule/moving service as a firefighter. I decided to get my EMT again, from that point I got my EMT- Intermediate after returning from a svacation to Afghanistan.Found I liked doing EMS a whole lot more than nursing and had a GI Bill to pay for some school so I decided to get my Paramedic, which is currently paying the bills. Future plans though are to do a Critical Care Paramedic course, and get my Registered Nurse at some point .

It's neat seeing how everyone has largely different backgrounds and likes in terms of schooling but we all can agree how awesome lifting heavy ass weight is!

I left school with normal CSEs and GCSEs, as they were called then (things have altered since); I got a Highers (English A Level equivalent) a few years back and then went on to do the Scottish Cultural Studies degree.

There was a mix of subjects but I guess the language areas were my favourite, covering Old Norse, Scots, Shetlandic, Orcadian and then a project on Old Scots which meant reading a 12th century text, writing a vocab for it, researching origin of words and so forth.

I'm green with envy. That sounds fantastic.


My degree is Biology and Psychology, with subsidiaries in Astronomy and Philosophy of Science.

My masters is in behavioural endocrinology (hormones and behaviour).

I have a post-graduate teaching qualification. I teach Philosophy of Religion and Psychology.

I'm now interested in subjects that are nothing to do with my academic background: mainly literature and history.

Favorite subjects are anything Math related though, lately I have picked up a background in control programming for production systems though.
