Philosophy 101 Assignment #1 After reading the given questions, “What would a perfectly happy life be?” and “What would the best way to get it?” I thought to myself that they were too vague to answer, and quite frankly too vague to take seriously. Although, after engaging in conversation with my mother first, followed by a close friend of mine, I realized how quickly and simply they could be answered. It must be kept in mind that there is a difference between being “perfectly happy” and being “greedy.” More often than not, people associate “happiness” with “money”, but after discussing these questions, it can be understood that there is a much more down to earth (so to speak) answer to true happiness and a practical way to achieve it. I first discussed these questions with my mother. We both think similarly, and to be honest, we did not discuss these questions in length. Quite simply put, she described a “perfectly happy” life as one filled with success and personal achievements.

    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.
