Did I really need to go? I'd be lying if I said that I haven't been pushed out of my comfort zone. I have been trying so many new things I never thought I wanted to try. I haven't felt this intellectually challenged in a long time because there's always the struggle of trying to do a perfect job. I went to a farm I had never heard about before and interviewed people I'd never have a reason to speak to.
This taught me the world is huge even in the smallest places: A small farm in Corvallis can be important to so many people. From a bush of strawberries, there grew hours of labor, and from a dirt path I saw a million footsteps printed on the ground that have brought food to our tables. Meeting new people, regardless of how extroverted a person can be is always a challenge. For me, it's been a wonderful challenge. Pushing yourself to intermingle with others not only brings the tenderness of human interaction but the happiness of self accomplishment.
