Nathan Mazurenko College Writing 112 Abandoned Dreams The sun is high, it is sometime around noon and the air is heavy and hot. The voices of children laughing and playing fill the summer air. It is 1994 in a small town called North Andover and the first game of Little League baseball is upon us. Our families surround us to cheer us on and our fathers are beaming with pride. Something is different, I am not quite sure what it is, but I am not the same as the others. There is no defining male standing behind me cheering me on. At the time I did not really know what was different, it came with time and now I realize, however, that I did not have a father. My father left my mother before I was born so I have spent my whole life without a father figure. Obviously growing up as a boy without a father figure is a little different or difficult. While all the other boys my age were playing catch with their fathers I was forced into finding a way to play catch by myself. I ended up throwing a ball on to my roof and waiting until it rolled back down as a makeshift game of catch. Also while my friends were getting taken to Red Sox games by their father I was forced into listening to them on the radio because my mother would not let me use the television. I remember feeling left out in a lot of different conversations because I did not get to watch the game on the television and thus did not get to see the great play.

    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.
