This is My Last Post

amanda1.jpg [3] Don't worry, this isn't my LAST post with BEEF Daily! No, this is just my LAST post as a college student, and I want to make it count. Soon, I will be in the "real world," and I'm not quite sure what that will feel like. Will my work as a blogger and speaker help me continue my passions in beef production? Can I smoothly transition into work with my grandparents and parents in a multi-generational cattle operation? Can I continue to find new topics to discuss on this daily blog? Will I be able to effectively address the issues of individuals within the cattle industry? What does it feel like to pay school loans, car payments and bills? I get nervous just thinking about it! However, I'm sure all of you will be able to offer me good advice in my transition.

In my FINAL post as a college student and kid, I thought I would look back over my senior year in college and highlight a few of the most visited and highly controversial blog posts during this first year of the BEEF Daily blog. Relive the memories with me, and feel free to add in your opinions along the way! Oh, and be sure to tune in next week for the first of many BEEF Daily summer contest giveaways! It's going to be a fun summer!
