Jillian Brychka ENG 222 – 075 Justin Larsen October 15, 2009 To Live Everyone has their own definition of life, and what it means to them to live their life. To live can be defined in many different ways. Some people believe a person is only living if they are working towards achieving a big goal, others believe to live be to change the world in some way or another. For some people to live be defined by their religion, they live for a higher power. There are those that believe if one has not taken a risk, they have not lived, while there are also people out there who define to live with the more biological definition. I believe life is defined differently by each individual and one can only be truly living if they are living their life and they see fit. There is the biological definition of to live. People literally define to live, as having the 7 characteristics of life. To live is to be able to reproduce, adapt, respond to ones environment, grow, be organized, use energy, and be composed of cells. Biologists believe every person and species has a place on the earth and has a large impact on the world biologically, like the food chain. For a biologist the purpose of one’s life is to reproduce, the cycle of life is to be born, reproduce, and die. Just as well, people medically define to live as to have a beating heart, breathing, and brain activity. If one is actually alive or not is a common debate in the medical world because of all the new technology today that can do those things one needs in order to live for you. When life begins and when life ends is always being argued. People may define to live the technical way, but is that really explaining what it means to live?

    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.
