Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Well, we’re coming upon the midpoint of the semester at my school, and I can’t believe that half of a semester is already gone.
I, like so many other college students, am in the midst of papers and projects and preparing for midterm exams. Fieldwork continues to occur once a week, and family obligations on the weekends keep me worn out. I’m overly exhausted and cannot wait until the day winter break begins. I am thoroughly looking forward to our fall break next week, even though it is only two days off. Now I can only hope that my little sisters will not wake me up at some ridiculous hour before the sun even rises.
I am overwhelmed by the hectic pace in which this semester is flowing by, but I keep reminding myself that the end is in sight. In just a semester and a half I will be graduating from college, and the moment that I get to walk across the stage I know will make all of this craziness worth it. I just need to keep remembering to check each syllabus and my planner for homework assignments, and keep track of how quickly deadlines are approaching, and I know that I will make it through this.
How many of you are either experiencing or know someone who is experiencing the chaos that is the middle of a semester? How do you deal with all of the pressure?

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.
