Christopher Evans Psych Disc 119 Assignment #1  1/28/07 Thus far my only impressions concerning psychology have been based on what I’ve  learned through biology and the connection to neural activity and my interaction with the people  in my life. On this level I have found that psych really revolves around what people do and why  they do it. The only other ideas I have about psych have come from my mother, who got a  masters in psych, where she always told me why I do the things I do. So when I did something  emotional or irrational she would make it a part of my talk with her after to try to find out the  reason for my actions and through understanding, make adjustments to correct the behavior.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
