Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Don't you just love the feeling of going out to hang with a friend after you haven't gone out in a really long time? That's how I felt tonight when a friend and I got together.
I feel like my life has been so bogged down with school and homework and daily craziness that I never go out and do anything fun with friends anymore. Though I didn't go do anything crazy, it was nice to just relax and hang out together with a friend of mine, and enjoy some nice conversation.
We also ended up spending part of the evening with my family. Of course, it was Chinese Food Friday at my house, so my friend joined us for dinner... Then, my sister had been told that she had two art projects picked to be in the high school art show tonight, a full-body sculpture that she had worked on for a group project, and a beautiful photograph that she had taken on a class field trip where the young photographers walked around in our town. So of course we all went to show our support and see the work displayed at the high school. My sister could not have been any prouder of her work, and we were all really proud of her too! Both art pieces looked great! Then, of course, since it was over 80 degrees out, we all had to make an ice cream run. It was a great night.
Of course, fun nights out with friends always make me feel a tad guilty that I wasn't home to catch up on television shows with my mom, or give good night hugs to my little sisters... But I guess it's good to have a night out every once in a while!
Oh, as a side note, I thought I'd mention how crazy my life can be... My mom actually got a phone call at 2am asking if we could take in two children!! If we had the room and weren't moving in two months, I could have woken up to have two new siblings this morning. Unfortunately, my mom couldn't agree to take in the kids because we just don't have the space or the time to help the foster care system up here anymore, but we'll see what happens in the future.

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.
