For me it was really odd to not shower or clean myself for those two days. By the end of it I felt disgusting, and thought that people around me must be revolted by my presence. One of the things that made this two day stint harder then I thought it would be was that I had not shaved for a week prior to it. My beard felt awful, and itched like nothing else. It was hard to fall asleep with it because it kept scratching against my pillow. Another thing that was gross was how greasy my hair got.

    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.
