Definitely creative writing and history are the two subjects that I express great passion for in school. I take a decent interest in school as a whole - I am very academic-oriented - I can't get into all subjects. At one point being a doctor was my dream career, but science began to make me lose interest in such a job. Science is overall a fine subject, but it doesn't always interest me. Math is just awful in my opinion. Math is my worst class (I have a B in that class on average) no matter what I really do. It's tough to study math, really. You either understand it, or you don't.
History is a very interesting subject, however. I've always expressed great interest in historical events; my favorite time eras are the Italian Renaissance and the Jefferson Era. Usually certain things influence in my interest in time eras; Assassin's Creed gave me the desire to look into the Italian Renaissance. This year I'm taking U.S. History - the teacher is awful, but the class is amazing. I look forward to watching videos every few weeks; I find out about a new person in history that I inevitably like a lot with each video, especially during the Jefferson Era.
History is overall a very important subject; history will repeat itself if we don't learn from our past mistakes. The documentation of history is probably one of the most important things we can do; preserving the legacy of humans is a necessary thing - even if society were to crumble, history must be kept, so it will be served as a precedent to the new civilization. It would inevitably be up to them to learn and distinguish correct actions, and ethically wrong ones.
The only downside to my passion is the lack of real work that I can do with it. Becoming a historian isn't a high-paying job, usually they end up just being a teacher or professor, which is one of the last things I'd ever want to do. There's the occasional historian that is in a movie that highlights a certain part of history, but with the lack of real viewing demand outside of schools, I'd assume the pay isn't very high. The only potentially high-paying thing that could come out of being a historian is writing books. However, my pay would depend on who really buys it; historical books isn't a risk I'm willing to take.
Creative Writing, however, is a much nicer passion for me. I've been able to use my abilities on Zelda Dungeon many times - whether I'm posting, or writing a story. This passion began in sixth grade when I was given creative writing for a single semester. I wish I had it the entire year, because it was a great semester. The teacher was a great man; I had him in seventh grade as well. He inevitably was the reason for my passion in writing; he was the one who suggested that I start writing after I wrote a small series using his short story homework. The quality of it was much worse than my current writing ability, but he saw potential in my capabilities.
Writing can be high-paying; writers like J.K. Rowling don't even have to write another book and they'll be set for life financially. Naturally I wouldn't be in it for the money, but it would be a good way to use my passion of writing and still make a decent amount of money. Being an author can also lead to movie deals, which is another way to get money. As stated earlier, it's not so much the money, but living a comfortable life is definitely an ideal thing.
In a sense, I could mix the two passions, writing historical fiction. Historical fiction isn't very popular usually, but when written well, it can end up selling many copies. There are also advantageous factors to historical fiction instead of historical nonfiction; you don't have to follow everything, you can distort facts, add events, or even omit a few. History is just your setting; the rest is up to you.
Creative writing and history are definitely my favorite subjects in school for many reasons. Making these passions into my job is ideal; I want to have fun while I work. Writing seems like a more plausible job for me, history might end up just being something on the side.
