Danielle Stein, 109959117 Journal Through taking this class, I have learned a lot about how my actions and the actions of others impact the Chesapeake Bay. On the first day of class, we took a true/false quiz about the bay. At that time, I believed that industrial pollution is the most serious problem for the bay, and that farming is the least serious problem for the bay. Clearly, I believed that my own actions had no impact on the bay, and that its problems could be attributed only to people other that myself. Looking back on this now, I know that none of this is the case. Many of my daily actions affect the bay. Something I do on a consistent, daily basis is shower. It seems ridiculous that such a minute, thoughtless action can actually have a large-scale impact on the bay. While showering, shampoo, conditioner, and body wash all rinse down the drain and into a sewage plant, and are eventually dumped into the bay. Other chemicals are also rinsed into the bay, including mouthwash down the sink, and pharmaceuticals that come out in urine when I take antibiotics or other medication.

    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.
