Jillian Brychka ENG 222-075 Justin Larsen September 27, 2009 My Baby Doll and Me As a kid, I always had one favorite baby doll that, no matter how plastic, was very real to me. I opened a package from my grandparents on Christmas Day when I was five years old, and inside was the best present I have ever received. This one baby doll was my best friend throughout my early childhood. The doll was the size of a real newborn baby. She was a little lighter; she only weighed approximately two to three pounds, but she was the same length as a real newborn at 19 inches. Her legs, arms, and body were soft and squishy to the touch, made out of white fabric stuffed with cotton. Her body was shaped like an oval with a big firm belly at the bottom of it; her legs and arms were slightly flimsy but in a realistic way, making her conform and sink into my arms as I held her. Her plastic head was not firmly attached to her body, just like a baby’s head is unsupported when they’re little because they have yet to develop the necessary muscles to support it themselves. She had blue eyes with eyelids that opened when she sat upright and closed when her head was laid down. She had black eyelashes made of a whisker-like material that fluttered when her eyes opened and closed. Her ears, nose, and slightly opened pink lips were sculpted onto her head so a person could feel the details of them within the plastic. There was no wire-like hair sticking out of her plastic head; instead lines where sculpted into her head; making strands of hair the same peach color as her head. Someone could faintly feel and see them, but she pretty much looked bald to me. One plastic hand was frozen as a little fist and the other relaxed open.

    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.
