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

Standing on this big rock, looking down and feeling the soft but chilly winds brush against my skin. The force of my body as I slid off, feeling the roughness of the rock under my feet. Seeing the water moving back and forth as I fly down in the air, barely touching the water. I close my eyes tight and squeeze the life jacket, screaming inside as I splash in. The water kissed my skin like the snow on a winter day. At lunch, Mr. Richie announced the trips for the day and as we ate, I felt the building shake under my feet as everyone laughed and talked. After lunch, we went back to our cabin to get ready for our overnight trip. Heading down to the waterfront, we put our things in big plastic trash bags and got life jackets on. Sitting there waiting, my eyes moved in a 360 degree rotation each second I got. My heart hit my chest, each beat with a thought, and Thoughts filled my brain one after the other. But looking at the water motivated me. I like to swim and feeling the water on my skin, calms me.

    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.
