Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Today, my brother, sister, and I went to the local library, while my mom took my other sisters out for a haircut. I worked at the library throughout high school, and only left when I went away to college. I love going back to visit, but it’s more difficult because our library is no longer three minutes from my house. The historic building that the library was housed in was severely damaged in Hurricane Irene back in 2011. Due to flooding and mold, the library was forced to move out of the building and take temporary placement in another building on the other side of town. It’s still only about ten minutes away from my house, but I don’t ever have a reason to go in that direction on a regular basis.
When I have gone to the library, (because let’s face it, I’m still a book-aholic), I have rarely seen my former boss. In fact, I hadn’t seen her in over two years, and then happened to see her at a store last summer. This summer, I actually saw her at the library when I went, and I was happy to see her once again today. My former boss is an incredible woman. During my time at the library, she was an inspiration to me, someone who I could look up to, and someone who believed in me completely in all of my ventures. I could go on and on about what an amazing person she was, and still is, and I’m so happy whenever I have the chance to catch up with her.
I have not had the pleasure of having as wonderful as a boss as I did at the library since I left. I can only hope that in the future I will be able to work with other great people, but I know that nothing will ever compare to my first job at the library, or the boss who inspired me daily.
Have you ever had a boss who inspired you? Let me know about them in the comments!

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.
