Sabrina Baez Baez 1 ENG 345 1/25/2012 Dear Girl with the Turquoise Shoes. (Paper 1) Weekly Paper #1 I’m standing at the top of the mountain, everything is blanketed in white. It is a cold like nothing I ever felt before. Being from the south, anything below 60° Fahrenheit is jacket weather. Here the coldness sinks into every part of your body including your bones. Despite the undershirt, long sleeve shirt, sweatshirt, and ski jacket I’m wearing plus the other twenty layers of clothing articles, I feel the goose bumps rising, as if summoned by their master, Fear. The freezing air around me is so deafening loud, I can practically hear the blood coursing through the vessels in my ears. The sound is almost like a waterfall so strong that it is quiet, like a muffled monster. One of those sounds that can easily be lost in the background unless you’re trying to sleep then it booms all around you like cannons going off in your mind. That resonant sound combined with the muffled grunts and moans as people go down like flies, creeps into my brain like an evil antagonist begging me to fail. The curiosity and sibling rivalry of this situation has drawn me here to this place on the mountain. I cannot move, I cannot breathe or think. The only thing keeping from turning around and crawling back to our nice, warm, hotel room is that annoying urge to be just as good as my brothers. The snow pelts down diagonally across my trendy red ski goggles as I take inventory of all my limbs, thinking sadly that I cannot drift away along with the cold wind right at this very moment. I can feel my heart pounding in my chest as I watch figures draped in puffy insulated clothes gliding down the mountain before me. I’m scared, petrified in the fear of the unknown.

    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.
