Dejonee Burnett World Literature and composition II 3/22/12 A1 Dear Conscious, You tell me not to eat that heart disease increasing cheeseburger whenever I am eating out with friends before a race, but I eat it anyways.

Without you I would’ve felt that lovely feeling of having a concussion for 300 years from that time that I fell off of my bike, mannn I really shouldn’t have listened to you when you told me to put my helmet on. Oh and that guy that whistled at me in Hershey Park that one night and followed me around; without you I would’ve gotten my face on America’s missing. I COULD’VE BEEN FAMOUS! It’s like you’re a mind

Unformatted text preview: reader, too bad you can’t tell me when I’m about to meet a cute guy, you could’ve warned me not to wear sweatpants and too put lotion on my arms, you could’ve at least warned me that my breath still smelled like pickles from my burger. Thanks a lot conscious. Maybe next time you can warn the girl next to me in math class that all of the answers she copied off of my test are wrong or tell unstable thinkers like Snookie that lobsters are supposed to be alive when they are killed.

    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.
