Online Post #1 Where is Home? Home for me is not a place or a building. Home for me is that warm, fuzzy feeling I get when it’s been a long hard day and I get off to my mom’s smiling face and warm embrace. Home to me is knowing that I can go to sleep at night and not worry about my safety because I know God has angels all around me. Home for me is the safety net that I call my family. People tend to believe that when you reference home it has to be a physical structure but that structure is simply a house. It isn’t a home unless there are loving people who care about you and are there for you no matter what living there. Home is a metal place you can go and will never be lonely. Home is the source of challenges that help to mold and make you into a human being that changes the world. At home I find happiness, peace, joy, and serenity like no other. “Home has really less to do with a piece of soil than, you could say, with a piece of soul” (Iyer). I can identify with this quote from Iyer’s speech because I also feel that home goes beyond what the eyes can see and the hands can touch. When we place value in a physical structure we don’t allow ourselves to view home as what it truly is, a soul tie, a special memory, our family. A house can catch on fire and you can lose everything, but when you place those same emotions and feelings into your family and those that make your home you will feel as though you haven’t lost a thing.

Online Post 2 Mona Lisa Smile is a movie directed by Mike Newell that displays the stereotypes placed on women in the 1950’s. Wellesley College was an all-Women’s college that groomed girls to become housewives and mothers. During this time women were depicted as only being useful for cooking, cleaning and caring for the children. The idea of a woman with a career was considered to be taboo or unethical. This principle of continuing on to graduate school was not even a thought for these women and many others, until Katherine Watson came and brought a fresh perspective about life beyond the kitchen and vacuum cleaner. Professor Watson introduced went against the grain of what Wellesley college considered “normal”. She was a 30-year-old woman with no children, no husband, and a focus on furthering her career, but she was content with this and believed that her priority shouldn’t be based upon a husband. In the end the girls understood that Professor Watson wasn’t trying to harm them or say that their way of life was wrong, she was simply trying to allow the girls to see that they weren’t limited to being one thing, they could be anything or do anything they want and be successful.Women have always been viewed as being inferior to men, but the reality is that women can do anything we put our minds to. Women throughout history such as Michelle Obama (The first black U.S First Lady) or Jill Abramson (The first female executive editor of The New York Times) and many more have proved that women are powerhouses that change the world and have value beyond the kitchen.

    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.
