Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Well, I made it… I got each and every one of my many projects completed on time this week. I had so many projects going on that I was hiding them from my mom for as long as possible, because she was having anxiety about me finishing everything.
So here’s what I had to do this week:
1. Study for finals
2. Take finals
3. Bake tons of cookies for teacher gifts
4. Make a Barney cake for a first birthday
5. Make a Sofia the First string art board for a Hanukkah gift
6. Work on hanging up Christmas lights around the house
I was actually getting paid for the cake and string art board, because I was doing them for other people, so that was nice… it also meant that those had to be perfect though. My mom was relying on me for teacher gifts being done on time. The Christmas lights were my own little project, and didn’t actually have to be done by today, but everything that I could do without my dad’s help was finished by tonight.
Here’s hoping that next week will be a little calmer… of course, I still have to finish this essay for my class that was cancelled yesterday. Fingers crossed that it’s not too difficult!!
I thought I’d also include a picture of some of the cookies I made and the cake I did…. let me know what you think!
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.
