If you're anything like me, no matter what year you are, saying goodbye to your mom when she drives away from your dorm/apartment/sorority house on move in day is one of the hardest things you'll do.

She was probably one of your best friends over the summer and one of the people you spent the most time with.

She's the person that knows the most about you and loves you more than anyone else.

Here are a few texts you might send her during your first month of school.

1. You'll never believe what happened

No shame, our moms are often our “go to's". Chances are they know your hometown friends and have met your college friends so they're the best person to talk to when something goes down.

2. I miss you

Day two or day sixty, there are just those days where all you want is to be able to grab lunch with her and give her a hug but you're thousands of miles away and don't have that option.

3. Can you send me money?

$0.68 left in the bank account. “Oh no what do I do?" Text mom, she always gives in :)

4. I'm so stressed

Three papers, two exams, a quiz, and practice. She's miles away so there's not much she can do but an encouraging text and reminder from mom is sometimes all you need.

5. I want to drop out

AKA: Give me a reason to stay at school. Classes are too hard, making new friends is tough, I hate being far from home.

6. Can you send me a picture of the dog?

If you're anything like me, missing your dog can be just as hard as missing your family. A picture of the dog never fails to turn the day around.

7. Can you send me _______?

“I forgot to pack this so will you send it to me? I'm really low on this and completely broke so any chance you can just send it to me?"

8. A care package sometime soon would be pretty cool

*Hint, hint*

9. Can I call you?


I may not be able to see you but hearing your voice is always comforting.

10. Can I wash these together? Hot or cold?

For many of us, it's been a while since we've done our own laundry, or for others the first time. A reminder is always helpful.

11. I feel sick

No matter how far away, your mom is always the first to know when you don't feel well. She may not be able to do anything, but chances are you'll text her to let her know. If you're lucky she may even tell you what to take or what it could be.

12. I love you

You appreciate what you have a lot more when it's not right in front of you. You're never too old to tell your mom you love her!

Hay is an awesome agricultural product with lots of different uses. Getting the hay though? Not always so fun. Now, there are two different types of hay people in this world; round balers and sqaure balers. Round bales? Great for livestock and require a lot of machine work. Sqaure bales though? Easier to transport but are a little more old school and a require a little more hands on heavy lifting. And no matter how much you try to mentally prepare yourself, there was no quite a summer task for farm kids than baling hay. With hay season in full swing here in Central Ohio, here are just a few thought's we all had every year baling hay.

1. Okay, it's time to bale hay, no big deal, we do this every year.

2. This is so easy! Why do I normally complain?

3. Oh yeah, that was just mowing and racking, that's always the easy part.

4. Is that a rain cloud? Better not be a rain cloud, someone check the forecast.

5. What are the chances that I'll getta just drive the tractor this year?

6. Slim to none, got it.

7. Okay, that's fine, it's not that bad.

8. These bales aren't even that heavy, this is totally fine.

9. Just kidding they get heavy after a while.

10. Why is does it always have to be so hot when we do this? I'm actually dying.

11. Man I'm not in as good of shape as I thought I was.

12. Yes (Dad/Mom/Grandpa) I promise we're stacking them tight enough.

13. Maybe they could be a little tighter, readjust.

14. Oh hey dust and allergies, I don't need to see or breath or anything like that.

15. My arms ich.

16. Need. Water.

17. Are we done yet?

18. This field never seems that big til hay time.

19. Only ___ of laps to go, I'm totally fine.

20. Man, I just wanna take a cold shower and eat everything in the house.

21. I'm gonna sleep so good tonight.

22. If one more person tries to tell me how to do this I'm throwing them head first in the baler.

23. Need more water please, time out.

24. Alright, last wagon. I. Can. Do this.

25. Hallelujah, the end is in sight, God is good.

26. ...What do you mean we still have to unload everything into the loft? I quit.

Poetry On Odyssey: Doubt

It is time to wage war on our emotions, yet to do so we must be ready for the unknown.

What is it

Where does it come from

Why is it here

How is it so strong

When will it go away

Who even is it?


Questions on questions

They pile up higher and higher

But for what?


Is it only to be answered with another question

A question that can’t be answered,

Or can it?


Its name is doubt

Or is that even its name

I have become so unsure,

Because of its silly game.


Doubt makes us worry

Doubt makes us unwilling

Doubt makes us lost.


The very definition of doubt

Is a question

Or maybe it’s “to question.”


Doubt may be a hinder

Yet it does not cripple

For doubt can be overcome.


Our grass doesn’t have to be compared

No, not to the other side

See our grass can be watered

Watered right where we are.


It may take time,

But it will grow,

For it is proven.


We can’t question what is true

We can’t assume things we have yet to experience,

Yet we can grow what is right at our feet.


Sometimes we have to go with what we know,

And not with what we feel.


We have been given a mission

A purpose, if you recall,

Not to sit on the side

Yet to take the lead for all.


This is a stand we must make

One that will be hard to do

But hold on the promise

That we have all been there too.


For just as angst comes to prey

Doubt is by its side

But we know what’s to be done

We know how to fight

For we must only stand in the light.


Our grass will grow green

No matter how dead it seems

Don’t forget to add the water

Because that is all it needs.


You’ve got this,

Keep going,

You’re going to do great

I’m proud of you my friend

For this is not the end.
