A Trip to Remember… Have you ever dreamed of a tropical island, where the surroundings are lush like the Brazilian rain forest with brilliant green trees? Where the sky is clear like looking through glass as though it has been going on forever and the scent in the air is of fresh cut fruit with a hint of a salty ocean breeze. Many of us work for and strive to get on vacation, but hardly make the time for it. Making time for one another when you are married can be difficult at times, this is why taking the time off can be beneficial to both your marriage and personal goals.

This trip was a long awaited second honey moon, our first one was non-existent so we promised each other that we would make up for it another time. Walking down the boarding ramp I became apprehensive, the fear of how long the flight was going to be started to consume my thoughts. I had a feeling this was going to be a long and rocky flight.

As everyone settled in and drifted off to sleep, I became very restless and uneasy with the small details of the flight. Would there be enough fuel to make it to our destination? Will there be plenty of air for all of the passengers to breathe? This was not my first flight, but it was going to be the longest one that I had ever be on.

    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.
