There comes a point where time cannot be managed and tasks must be laid to the side. As much as it pains me, graduate school isn’t one of those things that can be laid aside.

I absolutely love sharing my story online and being a part of the agriculture blogging community. So many great conversations have been spurred with people from across the globe whom I never would have had the opportunity to meet otherwise. Real friendships develop from these conversations. I’m talking about the kind of friends who drive miles out of their way just to grab lunch with me or have let me sleep on their floor when I am passing through their neck of the woods and we end up swapping stories all night long. These are folks that I talk to every day.

Everything I do, I want it to be done well. And right now I am not able to give my best.

At this point I have to sign off on the blog and set it on the back shelf. I will pick it up again when the time comes.

Until next time…

Agriculture, It’s more than part of life. It’s a passion, a lifestyle, a resilient community that works hard to feed the world! — Ryan Goodman
