The Light Bulb Slouching on the corner of the couch on a lazy Sunday afternoon, I was flipping through the TV channels to find something that would interest me. Coming home from work early, I planned to relax in front of the TV without any disturbances, but unfortunately that didn't happen. A bitter smell surged through my nostrils and I began to feel my eyes slowly getting puffy and teary, prompting me to push myself up from the couch and follow the mysterious smell. Just as I had expected, I noticed freshly sliced onions laying on the kitchen countertop, probably cut by my mother for her to use in one of her exotic dishes. Without much thinking, I picked up a slice of the onion and placed it onto the palm of my hand. Examining its golden brown papery skin, I became absorbed into the onion. Looking at the onion slice from all angles, I realized that it was more than just a vegetable that causes your breath to smell. The onion was a world of its own.

    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.
