The Ocean is Beautiful; Only Our Fear is Scary. Khanh Tran Sometimes on a cool day, I enjoy walking alone into the thickening twilight, listening to some old music and reflecting the peaceful old days, when I was young, free and reckless. It was in a cool morning in the last days of summer. I woke up on the shore of a tropical beach when my friends and I were on our vacation in South Vietnam. Having discovered a secluded beach late last afternoon, we decided to assemble a tent and sleep over, waiting for the next morning. The sunshine woke us up, filling the seashore with a gold color. The sand sparkled in my eyes while the wind was gently blowing my hair. My mind was filled with tranquility. I felt so lively and fresh. There was a fishing boat lying quietly in the middle of that picturesque scene, and I heard an inner voice urging me to get there. I went slowly down to the beach and wetted my body. The water was sapphire and so pure that I saw clearly the bottom of the ocean. Suddenly I got goosebumps all over my body; an old nightmare was coming back in my mind.

    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.
