Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
I got out of work almost a full hour before I actually got into my car and started driving home. Why, you ask, did it take me so long to be ready to leave? Well...
I stood around talking with one of my co-workers. I actually talked, outside of work, and felt so good about it. My co-worker actually said, after something came up about all of my friends being back in New York, that I should feel good because I have a friend in Florida now. It was so sweet. I was so glad that we got out of work at the same time and were able to talk like that.
As a matter of fact, this was the same girl to whom I had such trouble sending a message the other day when I wanted to make plans. Luckily, she said yes to the plans, and I'm excited to be going to this special event with her next month in Disney. She's really down to earth and has made me feel a lot better about my anxiety. It was weird...as we were talking, it just kind of slipped out how difficult it was for me to send that message to her, but she made me feel absolutely at ease.
I'm looking forward to getting to talk with my co-worker a lot more, and to continue getting to know her better. It seems as though we have kind of clicked with each other, and I'm wondering how much we actually have in common. I do know that one of the most important parts of life, a love of "Grey's Anatomy," is something that we have in common at least!
I really hope that things continue to grow for me, both with this new friendship and with other friendships at work. I have a great time with my fellow Cast Members as we fulfill our job requirements, so I just need to become relaxed enough to socialize with them outside of work, should something arise that would call for us to hang out.
Your continued support means the world to me. From foster care to novels, and family to work experiences, I look forward to sharing more of my life with you each day. Don't hesitate to share your own stories with me or ask me questions about my life. 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.
