Even in the mortal world people live along the banks

Even in the mortal world, people live along the banks of lakes and rivers, apparently so do people in the underworld. The first people I ran into in the underworld were the fates, it is strange to see that these were the people who determine the course of my life. In my mind I wanted to thank them for a great

2 life I had up until the point the oil spill disaster occurred. In my mortal, I had a great education, friends and even became the CEO of a major company. What I do not understand is why they had to stop my success at such an early age. As I walked past them I watched how Clotho spun the thread, Lachesis held the thread in a way handing it to Atropos to cut it with her rusty scissors. I jumped as she had a cut a big piece of thread, I witness her end a mortal’s life, now they are probably on their way the underworld. There is nothing anyone can say or do to them, they determine every single person’s life, including the gods. As I keep on walking I saw what appeared to be two gods talking to each other by the river of Styx, Nemesis, and Thanatos. I could tell it was those two gods because they both have wings and I knew that Nemesis is a woman and Thanatos looking like death.

    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.
