Grace Jacobs College Prep Composition Mrs. Johnson August 22, 2018 Mall Catastrophe One thing I never thought I would get to experience: being a crackhead hurts. When I was about four years old, my mom worked at the Adoption Center in Wichita, where she helped conduct home studies to decide if a couple looking to adopt was suitable to have a kid. Occasionally, she needed to go get the child, and they would stay at our house for a couple of days until the adoptive parents pick them up, as some were living out of state. This was one of those times. My whole family loaded up in our green mini van and drove for what seemed like an eternity to the middle of Nebraska to pick up a baby boy that was waiting to meet his new parents. The thing I remember most about Nebraska is, wow, it smells like cow poop. This was all I could smell when we stopped at a local mall on the way home. We all unloaded quickly, thankful to be able to stretch our legs. At this point, it was probably about nine o’clock or so, and it seemed as if there were no other people there.

    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.
