Martin 1 Heather Martin ENG 111 Dr. Timothy Robinson 24 October, 2016 Growing Up “Ugh,” I groan as I stand up from my desk. I’m Heather, a 14 year old who lives in Charlotte, North Carolina, and is a homeschooled sophomore in high school (Appositive). I just completed school for the day and my brain is fried. I trudge out of my room and down the stairs. It’s about 5:00 pm and the warm, August sunshine is streaming through the windows. I walk into the kitchen where my mom is preparing dinner and greet her. “Hey, mom,” I say, my voice showing evidence of fatigue. “Hi, honey,” she replies. We begin to chat about our day and what’s on the agenda for tomorrow. I stroll over to the stove, peeking inside the steaming pots. Right then, my dad makes his way downstairs and through the doorway. I give him a hug and giggle as he starts to tickle me. “So, is Melissa at work?” He asks, inquiring about my sister’s whereabouts. “Yes,” my mom and I reply in unison. My sister works full time at Chick-fil-A while also juggling a full load of college classes, and sometimes, I just don’t see how she does it. “So, Heather,” my dad begins, “have you thought any more about applying at Chick-fil- A?”

    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.
