I also remember Daddy teaching my brother and me to fish. We were out at the east beach and we shared a fishing pole. We actually managed to get a bite and took turns reeling in the fish. The fact that we didn’t lose the fish as we passed the pole still amazes me. You would have thought that we caught the catch of the year but it was just a rockfish and an ugly one at that!

    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.
