It’s hard to seek help and direction that is easy to understand. “It's so strange how life works: You want something and you wait and wait and feel like it's taking forever to come,” is a quote that many can relate to(Oliver, 2011).

    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.
