Growing up on the family farm, I always knew I wanted to be a part of the agricultural industry. Couple this with my love for writing and it almost seems that the agricultural communication major was made just for me. Agriculture not only led me to my course of study, but also to one of the best universities in the nation—The Ohio State University (Go Bucks!).
As students at OSU, we are challenged in our classes, organizations and jobs to not only further our social development, but our professional careers as well. It is because of this push that I attended The College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences Career Fair this past fall.

If you opened the dictionary and turned to the word perfectionist, you would see my picture right beside it. I do not like leaving projects hanging or half done. This was just how I was raised. My mom’s motto was always if you can’t give something your all, then there’s no need to be doing it. This is a philosophy that I continue to carry with me each day. I have learned though that giving it your all doesn’t mean you won’t make mistakes. And you know what? That’s ok.

There I was. It’s always kinda’ funny when you start a story like that. But, it’s true, I was there…at Starbuck’s that is. I had an appointment with a great customer and friend at Wakarusa, IN. I needed to get there, but nature called. I had also needed to stop for some coffee after a restless night’s sleep. But, you know when you have to go so bad that the hair is standing up on your arms? It was like that.
