Summer sweats off our elementary faces as we enjoy the plain days of playing in the neighborhood. We had a mini ramp set up in the middle of the street. All of the kids in the neighborhood were around. This one kid who was older than all of me and my friends decided to jump it on his bike. And we all put our bikes behind the ramp to see if he could go further and jump over the bikes as well. We were all rooting him on, and watching him, and he did……almost, until his front wheel caught the end of handlebar of the last bike. He went down, hard, and went into a state of shock. Quiet fell among us. As I saw blood roll down his wrist I was frozen as he shakes uncontrollably. ~ ~ ~ It’s the night before the first day of senior year, and like every year the seniors have a huge parade coming onto the parking lot. I get a text at 8:00PM: “Everyone meet at Bayou park at 11 to tag cars…Graffiti Bridge ;p”. The sun is just now saying bye to Pensacola.

    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.
