Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
For those of you wondering, yes, I did manage to finish my essay on time to hand it in this morning!! It took forever (alright, not forever, but at least five hours) to finish it, and I was completely exhausted this morning because I got to bed so late, but it’s finished. I actually think it even came out pretty well, surprisingly!
It’s funny, because I’m an English concentration within my Education major, and I love to write stories and work on this blog, but I absolutely hate essays. I’m horrible at essays. I mean, it’s not like I fail essays or anything; I usually get somewhere in the B+ to B- range, but still, for an English person, you’d think I would do better at them.
Does everyone else hate essays as much as I do? Or is it just when you’re forced to write about a topic that you have no interest in? If I was asked to write about something that I enjoy or know a lot about, like children or foster care, then maybe I would have an easier time with it. I don’t know, because unfortunately I’ve never gotten an assignment to write an essay about whatever I want!
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.
