Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Despite the rainy weather and the fact that my bangs became lifeless halfway through work due to the downpour, it was a pretty great day today!
Alright, so in all seriousness, I would have preferred to make it back to my work location from the break room before it started pouring, but I guess it wasn't horrible. I mean, it literally started raining just a minute before my break was over, and it was so windy that my umbrella turned itself inside out.... crazy way to try to get back into work!
I had some fun things to do today that weren't part of my usual daily job routine. One little errand even got me walking across the park! Again, it would have been nice if it wasn't raining while I was out there, but what are you going to do? I said to Guests all day today, if you're going to get rained on, at least you're getting rained on at Disney World.
Even with all of the rain, everyone was in such a good mood today. Guests and Cast Members alike ended up wet and chilled throughout the day, but everyone was in high spirits and no one had anything to complain about. I met quite a few Guests today who were lovely to chat with as well, even two families from New Jersey. I spoke with one of the Jersey families for quite a while as they were asking me about how I like Florida and if we had been able to find any food that's as good as New York pizza and bagels (the answer, of course, was no).
The only real problem with the rain was the fact that so many drivers are out of control on dry roads, so wet roads are even worse. People are crazy down here! Driving home, I go on a highway where the speed limit is either 60 or 65 mph. With it raining and slippery, I was driving about 50 or 55 mph. Some people had to be going at least 70 or 80 mph though, swerving through lanes and cutting people off... it can be scary driving alongside people like that!
Luckily, other than my bangs, I personally didn't have an issue with the rainy weather today. As we've said before, we would much rather deal with the rain than with shoveling snow back in New York! I think I just need to find a new hairstyle and all will be well!
Your continued support means the world to me. From foster care to novels, and family to work experiences, I look forward to sharing more of my life with you each day.

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.
