The most important people in my life were and still are my parents; looking back my parents was the most understanding and patient people I know. They were very strict on my brothers and me but I can understand why now. My parents raised us boys to be respectful, polite, and they always wanted us to know that no matter what went on we could always talk to

The Beginning 6 them about are problems. This is how my wife and I raise our children now. We want our children to be able to tell us everything and to be comfortable telling us things too. My uncle Ronnie played a big role in which I am today too. I use to go and spend a lot of time with him also. He taught me all about baseball, baseball cards and even getting I interested in the New York Yankee's. I think he was one of their biggest fans. My uncle Ronnie and I also loved to go shopping. He would always by me clothes. Then we would ride up and down the streets just to look at women, I thought I was a pimp. My uncle Ronnie went in to have a simple gallbladder surgery, they accidently hit his pancreas and he died two months later. This was a very sad time for my family and I. I was lucky because he left me his car; it was so full of memories and times that we had spent together. The things I remember most about my childhood are going to spend time with my mother’s parents. I used to call them from the neighbor house and ask them to come and get me. They would show up at my house and my mother would say “What are ya'll doing here”. Of course they would say we are he to pick Ron up, he called us and said mom said I could come to your house if you would come and get me. I can recall spending the night with them. My grandpa would go to bed early and my grandma would stay up late just to watch Dallas. Then my grandpa would get up super early and cook himself breakfast. I can still smell him cooking sausage, eggs, and biscuits. When I was in elementary school I would ride the bus to their house in the afternoon, my grandma would have the best snacks for us. She would either have pizza, homemade cookie, or basically whatever we wanted. Of course she would always have black cherry cool aide made for us to drink my favorite.

    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.
