Qahash 1 Jared Qahash Dr. Aronow Advanced Placement Composition 14 December 2015 Time is not Measured by Clocks, but by Moments Easter is the day of life; it is the day when religious people celebrate the miraculous resurrection of Jesus. Our family went to church, like most do. My Uncle Ken was an avid church member, so giving and thankful. We had to go. After the service, we had to go to our great Uncle Royce’s house for a reunion. It had been some time since we last saw that side of the family. Our cousins and Nana agreed to meet at her house to pick her up before we began the two hour drive. The trip is dreadful due to the fact that it takes so long. Our green van pulled up to my grandma’s house. Our cousins were following us, but they took a detour and pulled over. The family was questioning where they were. Time passed and, finally, my Aunt, Uncle, and cousins arrived. They had a nice story to tell us. On the way home, an old lady had a tire issue. Being the kind soul he was, my Uncle Ken pulled over to help her fix it. It was Easter day, and we had to get to a family gathering, but he took the time to get out of his car and assist someone he did not know. Not only that, but in the same drive, a kid, by accident, let go of a balloon, leaving it to fly away. Once again, my Uncle got out of the vehicle and retrieved the balloon. The kid was, apparently, so grateful when he got it back. I never really understood why he would do such a thing. Usually, the natural, but selfish attitude of many people would ignore both situations. Anyway, the family began our long journey. After buckling myself in, I glanced out the window to see my Uncle Ken get into the driver seat. My Aunt Leslie was in the passenger seat.

Qahash 2 Autumn, our eldest cousin sat behind her father. I could not help but realize how much they looked alike. Nana hopped, or, more appropriately, wobbled into the middle seat of the whole vehicle. Zach, our younger cousin sat in the back. Even though it was a lengthy drive, I was able to catch up on some needed sleep. Waking up early for church, is exhausting. I rested my head on my baby brother’s car seat. Who knew plastic could make such a good pillow? Looking out the car, my eyes closed by themselves, proving my body’s desperation for rest.

    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.
