Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Sometimes I like to use this blog to vent, and tonight is one of those times.
We all know that finals week is stressful, hectic, and chaotic, and my week has been no different. Last night, I was supposed to be emailed a story to read, and then for today’s final we were going to write essays analyzing that story. Well after emails with classmates and trying to get in contact with the professor, there was never a story sent out to any of us. I drove 45 minutes up to school this morning, walked 15 minutes across campus in the freezing cold because there was no close parking open, and got to the classroom just in time, only to find out that there was no final. The professor was sick, the deputy chair of the department had only just found out about all of this, and no one had an exam for us to take. My professor hadn’t bothered to contact the school early enough for us all to be notified, and hadn’t bothered to email anyone.
So then I drove 45 minutes home again and got some shopping taken care of before returning to my house to finish cookies and whatnot. It was a completely wasted trip. And to top it all off, I got an email from my professor tonight with a story. No apology, no instructions, just a story. So I emailed him back, and now I’ve been told that we need to write our essays at home and email them to him by Monday. Really?
I’m extremely frustrated and can’t wait for this class to be over.

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.
