Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
I just got to my car after my extremely long day of work. While the day may have started out magically, I think the blisters all over my feet would suggest that the magic may have run out before the stroke of midnight unfortunately.
It was really nice to be working side by side with my team today, and also to interact with Guests a lot. I've been learning more and more about my role and responsibilities, and even though I'm feeling more confident in what I'm doing, I sometimes still can't believe that I'm actually working at Disney World.
At the same time, 12-hour shifts are INSANELY DIFFICULT, even if you're working at the "Happiest place on Earth."
My feet are killing me, my back is really sore, and I just want to fall asleep for the next ten years. On the bright side, I'm really enjoying the company of the people I work with!
I received a comment on one of my blog posts commending me for my commitment to this blog... I was so surprised to receive this comment, and quite pleased with it. Sometimes it probably seems like there is no point in my writing on any given night, because I need to keep things brief when I don't have a lot of time to write. Sometimes I wonder if I should cut back on blogging and not write daily. Maybe I should write weekly instead, and write longer posts. But then I remember part of the reason why I began blogging in the first place. It was so that I had a reason to write each day. Even if I'm only writing about what happened during the day, at least I'm writing. As an author, it's so important to just use that part of my brain, even if I'm not actually telling a well-written story exactly. It's like exercising in a way... You don't have to be doing something to an extreme in order to accomplish something. And as I've mentioned in the past, I think that some family members and friends use my blog as a way to keep up with my daily life.
Well, it's time for me to head home. Thanks for bearing with me in my crazy schedule, and I'll definitely be responding to comments here and on Facebook as soon as I can!
Thank you so much for your continued support! I look forward to sharing more stories about my experience with foster care, and hopefully hearing from readers who have questions or similar stories to share. I'm always willing to answer questions and hear about other experiences! Please don't forget to like and share my Facebook author page as well!
I’d greatly appreciate it if you would share this blog with friends and family through your favorite social media sites. If you’re sharing on Twitter, don’t forget to tag me (@TayTayK02) and use the hashtag #TaylorTalks.
My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
