Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
It's officially summer! I'm not talking about the day on the calendar... "Big Brother" started up again last night!
Anyone who really knows me and my mom knows that our summers are consumed by one thing: "Big Brother." It's not really summer until Julie Chen has officially welcomed us to the "BB" house.
Have you ever seen the show? Take sixteen people, throw them into a house where they're cut off from everyone and everything for three months (give or take), where they have to compete for food, comfort, power, and safety, and the grand prize at the end of it all is $500,000, and that's basically what the show is about.
I don't know what it is about this show, but I am completely addicted. The show itself is on three times a week, but there's also a nightly live television feed of the house that lets you just watch whatever is happening in the moment. There are live daily feeds 24/7, but you have to pay for those and let's face it, I'm cheap. Instead, I rely on websites where people who do have the live feeds post about everything that's happening. So I'm not the only person who is totally addicted to this show.
The show started its nineteenth season yesterday, and I'm already hooked. It'll only be a matter of days before I have everyone's names memorized and know who has an alliance with whom and whatnot. I need to know everything that's happened before the show even airs on television... it's seriously an addiction. But hey, the first step is admitting that you have a problem, right? I just don't want help for this problem!
I can't wait to see what happens over the course of the summer in the "BB" house!

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.
