Setting down her carry-on Kanna begins to take out her book when her phone rings. “Hello? Yes, I’m all done for today. No, I’ll make it by 2 tomorrow, its all been taken care of.” Nearby a butterfly is fluttering around, and then is caught by a cat.

    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.
