LHSP 130 Essay 2: Memoir Building on what you have learned from the personal essay, write a 10-12 page memoir examining a slice of your life. Why do we vividly remember some moments and not others? What memories stay with us and why won’t they let us go, or why do they continue to intrigue us, or give us hope, or a sense that somehow we have been transformed or marked. Develop one of the prompts that you began in your notebook during our in-class writing: What makes a hometown or a home? Who is in your family tree? Tell us her/his/their story and how it connects to you. What dream(s) do you remember? How did it impact your waking life? When have you been lost? What is something that at first you misunderstood, but now see differently? Or start with one memory from the list generated in class last week. Look to our readings as models. Like David Sedaris in “Me Talk Pretty One Day,” you may want to write about a monstrous teacher, or you may decide to write a homage to your family like Lorna Goodison’s “From Harvey River.”

    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.
