Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Wow, so today was pretty much the coolest first day of work ever! And I do mean first day of work... I found out that we got paid for today!
Everything was magical, and exciting, and full of joy, and I wish I could go into depth about each and every thing that we did. Unfortunately though, I did find out today that I have to go back even earlier tomorrow morning for another full day of training. As much as I loved being there today, and as happy as I am to go back again, waking up at 4:45am isn't my idea of awesome. Hopefully tomorrow will be just as amazing as today was, and it'll make up for the early wake-up call.
Among today's excitement was the fact that I got my name tag. My beautiful name tag that proudly displays my name and hometown. After my whole group put on our new name tags, I kept mine on until I got home and showed my family. Speaking of getting home, my 45 minute trip took two whole hours!! It was crazy... completely stopped traffic for a while, and then moving an inch at a time. Yikes. At least I had Christmas music blasting on the radio to keep me sane the whole drive home!
I'm really excited for tomorrow, but since it's another early morning, I have to get to bed early again tonight. Hopefully at some point this week I'll have time to put up pictures and write more than a few paragraphs! Thanks for hanging in there with me while I navigate my new job and figure out my time management skills.
Thank you so much for your continued support! I look forward to sharing more stories about my experience with foster care, and hopefully hearing from readers who have questions or similar stories to share. I'm always willing to answer questions and hear about other experiences! Please don't forget to like and share my Facebook author page as well!
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.
