The Country to Where You’re Going I got the package in the mail only a few days before I was supposed to come home. I was excited because I hadn’t received anything significant for months, not even for my birthday; it was three weeks later when I found a card from my parents with ten dollars and “don’t buy alcohol” scribbled inside. When I saw that it was from her I became even more excited. Since I had come to school, we had been sending each other letters in the mail. Lately her letters had become less frequent and much shorter, but this package made up for the days when I would eagerly check the mail in anticipation of a letter—only to be let down by a flyer wanting me to join some sorority. I ripped open the small box only to find an unlabeled CD and a card that simply said “I’m sorry.” ________________________________________________________________________ When I first met Julia in high school I knew she had something special about her. She was a model, the class valedictorian, and humble despite her abilities. When Julia first met me she thought I was strange. We had mutual friends and went to the same parties, but I was always the one in the back room playing guitar while she was in the front dancing to music that made my ears bleed. Despite her lack of musical tastes, I pursued her relentlessly. She did love the Beatles though, and when I played “ Julia” for her after school one day, she finally agreed to let me take her out.

What students are saying

    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.
