Anikina 2 “Mom?” I called her softly, “I'm sorry" that's all I could get out of a five-year-old me. One thing's for sure: I was ashamed. Mom had never been so quiet. She either chatted incessantly, or she was always fussing around the house, or doing something else. It made me tense seeing her like this. I felt like she was replaced by someone else. I didn't like seeing her like that. Mom's shoulders twitched. She turned to me, smiled and tenderly patted my head. "Don't worry, Aaron," she said, turning back to the broken vase and picking up the pieces, “This vase is very old, it's time to throw it away." at the time, I thought her voice faltered. I was still ashamed. I whimpered softly, bouncing on my little legs. I used to do that when I panicked when I was little. I was just watching my mom picking up the pieces, and as I was leaving, I noticed tear stains on the wooden floor. As I passed dad's office, I heard my parents' voices. Curiosity took over me and I gently opened the door. “Aaron broke the vase?” my dad asked. My mom silently shook her head. I felt ashamed again. My mother’s face was red and her head was down. She was sitting in dad's chair, nervously kneading her hands. Dad squatted down beside her and put his palm on her cheek. “Why are you crying?” after a couple of seconds, my dad removed his arm, got up, went to one of his drawers, and took the glue. “Look,” he started to glue vase’s pieces together. My mother was carefully watching him, and when he finished, she smiled childishly and hugged him tightly. I’ve never seen her like this.

    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.
