Keely-Shea Collar Professor Francis ENG 270 17 September 2018 On My Way to the Lake The light was fading, creating new shadows and dark patches around me. Eyes glimmered from tree hollows. The wind wailed between distorted trunks, carrying the sickly stink of wood rot. I moved faster, ignoring the briars that caught at my jeans, the damp leaves that grimed my skin. Then I lifted my face, letting the light and shadow dance across my skin. Bees hummed in and out of the surrounding foliage. I hated bees. But in such a serene moment, I could tolerate them. I inhaled its minty smell and continued on, delighting in the sound of my feet sliding through the leaves. The trees lashed and crashed against each other like drumsticks in the hands of a giant… And suddenly the trees I had been walking amongst just moments ago, we’re gone. I saw browns and greens. Moss. Bark. I saw the ripples and grooves of the tree, but not the tree.

    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.
