To me, I believe opportunity cost play a big role in everyone’s life. Unfortunately, as the old saying goes you can’t have your cake and eat it too. This saying is perfect for the definition of the opportunity cost because no one can have everything they want in life.

I encounter scarcity both in my personal life and in my workplace. In my personal life due to the fact that my family currently lives with my mother, so we are scarce on the amount of space we have for our children. As well as privacy. I also encounter it in my workplace because as a teacher to 12-15-month old’s I am scarce on the amount of room I have for these kids to run their energy during the day.

    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.
