second, I could swear I saw God in that man – just the sheer strength and courage and boldness it takes to stand up to me, let alone bring me to my knees. He was the quintessence of what a Gryffindor should be. After he had gotten the idea that I was in awful pain, he decided to end my misery, by submitting me to pain more excruciating than you can imagine. He promptly took my hand, wrapped it around my back, and began to pull. The sound of my muscle fibers tearing, and the faint *splurch* of my blood vessels tearing was distressing enough in itself. However, the obvious and loud crunch of my bone being torn from my chest placed the proverbial cherry on top. When I turned back in agony, the warrior was holding my shoulder, arm, and claws like a baton. I was defeated, and there was no more to it. I rushed out of the hall and returned to my cavern, where I am now. In summary, within minutes, I went from being the biggest, baddest, demon in all of Europe, to a piece of meat rotting at the bottom of a lake. I don’t know what’s more nerve- racking – the fact that my shoulder look like a fire truck’s hose, spewing out blood as if the Hoover Dam burst, or that even at the bottom of my lake, underwater, I can hear the cheers and praise and celebratory yells of “Beowulf”, venerating the warrior that defeated me.

    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.
