I always felt kind of funny being led by a referee out to the field. Could I have already forgotten were the field was, and needed a guide to lead me? All week leading up to the game it had rained and rained and rained. People were preparing to build an ark and gather two of every animal, it had rained so much. But this does not stop a football game. As I walk out to the field I can feel the high crisp grass under my feet combined with the thick gooey mud beneath. My feet sunk at least three inches underneath my weight. It was hard work just to walk across the field. As the game progressed the first quarter went rather conventionally.

The jumbled pile of dirty, sweaty football players was headed directly for my leg which seemed cemented into the ground. Two things would follow. First I heard this loud snap, as if a wooden bat was walloped in half by a 100 mph fastball.

    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.
