Lyndsay Hall July 21, 2010 The Simple Things We make this drive nearly every week, at the same time on the same day. It was Friday, approaching 6 p.m., and the wind was blowing through the car windows. Tommy, my boyfriend, and I have the same ritual every time we come down here: turn up the volume on the stereo, put in a Sublime CD, and let the wind be our air conditioning. We sing along for an hour, knowing every word on the album, until we reach our destination: my house in Key Largo, Florida. We veer off of US-1 and turn onto Cartsound Road, to avoid all the traffic of cars eager to reach the beautiful ocean surrounding the Florida Keys. Tommy and I are no exception, and the small number of cars on the road allows us to reach speeds of around 70 mph. This road is lined with trees, ranging in heights and sizes that make up, what appears to be, a dense forest. There are no houses, no businesses, and seemingly no life outside of the cars driving down the long stretch of road. It just feels like Tommy and I, together, relaxing after our long, drawn out week. I can hear Tommy mumbling song lyrics under his breath, something he is typically too embarrassed to do. I put my hand on his leg and smile up at him.

What students are saying

    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.
