College Essay #2 Rough Draft .docx - My hands are trembling...

This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 3 pages.

My hands are trembling with excitement as a smile stretches across my face, I finally get to return to the place I escape to in the depths of my mind when reality becomes too harsh. The airport is buzzing with wailing babies, rushing business men, and deafening white noise, but all I can hear is the faded sound of crashing waves and joyful laughs from so long ago. It has only been a couple of years, yet it feels like a lifetime away. The California sun used to slip through my blinds and quietly wake me, the air that filled my lungs seemed so crisp and cool, as if it had been touched by winter snow. The muffled voice of a woman interrupts my thoughts, her voice is echoing through the terminal and telling the impatient, tired crowd that our plane would begin boarding. My heart is racing, in only a few hours I will be back in Santa Cruz, California, it has waited for me all this time like an old friend. I slump down into my seat and as we take off I finally rest my mind, waving down at the Texas lands as my view becomes swallowed by clouds.

    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.
