10/05/05 “Nothing in Excess” It was “Nothing in Excess”. Once my teacher said that, something in my head just clicked. It was really weird like it was just an epiphany. That is how I began my high school as a freshman. I remember going to my first class petrified. I had no clue what to expect and the only thing I really did know about high school life came from my older siblings whose mendacious stories made it seem like a reminiscent of Hell. So as I strolled into my World History Class, I saw that my teacher is a big frightening looking man who seemed like a real headache. Mr. Alessandri was his name, but people called him Mr. A. He did not waste anytime at all once everybody was in the class, and Mr. A started to pass out class work assignments. Then he started discussing the first unit with us which was on the Greek culture. At the time, I never had a teacher like that; so demanding and arduous. Half way through the class, he then told us about a quote that the Greek people had lived their life around. At first I did not believe it. How could one sentence of certain words affect someone’s life? My teacher then wrote it on the already filled up black board. It was “Nothing in excess.” Boom! It hit me. That is how I had been living my life for so long now and still continue to live this way today; in moderation.

    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.
