Journal #3 “Changing the Mind” At first glance, the question of whether or not I would change my mind in order to be happier seemed to be an obvious one. The natural reaction of people is doing what makes you happy, or what you think willmake you happy.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
