Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Wow, it's the last day of March already! I can hardly believe it... 2016 seems to be just flying by!
So it's 9:15 in the morning and I'm sitting around wondering what I've forgotten to do to get ready for work... How am I ready to go so early? I mean, I even had time to go for a walk this morning, which is very strange. I'm probably going to get to work and realize that I forgot something incredibly important.
Anyway, I'm working a twelve hour shift today, and wasn't sure if I'd be out and back to my car in time to blog tonight, so since I'm sitting around eating breakfast, I figured I would post now. I was so overly exhausted when my alarm went off this morning that I thought I would be running late today. I wondered how I was going to make it through my whole shift if I was already this tired and hadn't done anything yet. Now, even though I'm still yawning every once in a while, I feel energized. Maybe it was the walk that did it, I don't know, but I feel ready to go. I'm sure that later tonight I'll be cursing myself for not going to bed earlier last night, but at least I'm feeling good for the beginning of my shift!
Tonight, I'm closing, which is something that I haven't done in forever. I'm afraid that I'm going to forget to do something because it's been so long. I guess in a way, even if I'm tired later, it's good that I'm on closing so I can get back into that routine again.
When I'm on closing, I'm at my location until after all of the Guests have left for the night. It's so strange to see a part of Disney with absolutely no Guests in it. It's kind of fun to be one of the last faces that a Guest sees on their way out of the Park at night. You get to wish them a Magical night and see them off... you don't know if it was their first day in the Parks or their last, but you're ending one of their special vacation days, so it's nice to interact with the Guests. I feel like I sometimes have better conversations with Guests at the end of the night because I can focus solely on them; there are no crowds to deal with or other people needing your attention. Guests trickle out little by little and you can ask them about their experience and really enjoy a conversation to end the night. I love it.
Alright, I better get going now... Don't want to end up making myself late for work because I thought I had so much extra time this morning! Enjoy a wonderful last day of March!

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.
