Birth/Trust vs Mistrust Dear Ziggy Stardust, You were born a handsome baby boy on November 24,2016. I named you Ziggy Stardust as a tribute to the legendary David Bowie. Your eyes were a beautiful ocean blue, you had golden blond peach fuzz, and your skin soft and pale, you looked exactly like your father! In fact, much of your physical appearance was like your fathers, clearly good genes were passed down to you. Although, you were very cute and cuddly, you also were a chunky baby. You weighed exactly 10 pounds when you were born. Both your father, Justin, and I were very surprised because we were both pretty small babies. However, I believe the best trait you got little Ziggy was your father's pristine blue eyes. We bonded with you instantly, and Justin was beyond excited to be a father to you. When I held you, you were always staring at me with that beautiful smiling on your face. Justin would hold you and bring you by the window, letting you observe your surroundings. You eventually got so used to it, you would point to the window everyday. A neighbor on our street had a shiny purple Mustang you loved to look at as they drove down the street. You really enjoyed nature as a baby, and we were sure to go on plenty of nightly walks keeping you warm and cuddly. You loved rain, and even though it was very rare in Arizona, you enjoyed listening to the drops of rain outside your window especially when you were feeling upset or anxious. We made sure to do plenty of activities to become more bonded with you. As you know, your father is really passionate about video games, him and I agreed to put time aside to be all together as a family to bond over educational programming and listening to classical music. Your favorite object in the whole world was your baby blue elephant. You never went anywhere without it, and when you did, you were very fussy. I knew you felt safer when you had your elephant with you. Your first year was very lovely.

Autonomy vs Shame and Doubt Dear Ziggy Stardust, My little Ziggy- you were finally 3 years old! I can’t believe how fast time passed! So many things in your life had already happened- your first steps, your first word, and even you becoming a video game fanatic like your father. You started walking just before you were a year old, you had really astonishing balance for your age, but when you needed help, you put your faith in your father and I when you needed help getting around. I will never forget once when we were at the park, your father had a kite and were flying it, and you screamed in joy trying to catch it! I tried to help you say “color” because it was a rainbow kite, but you struggled. You were too busy chasing after the kite and smiling in joy. By the time you had completely understood the concept of walking and balance, you were 2 years old.

    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.
