Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Well, today was a fun day at work. I'm completely exhausted now, but it was a good day.
A couple of times today, fellow Cast Members referred to me as "Taylor Swift" in some capacity, which I thought was pretty funny; no one has ever called me that before, and suddenly it happened a few times. Maybe I should have told them that my name actually came from Taylor Dayne... I guess that's a story for another day though.
Speaking of my fellow Cast Members, I feel like I've been getting to know the people I work with a lot better over the more recent weeks. People with whom I don't have as much contact, just because we work in two areas within our location, always seemed really nice, but I just didn't know them all very well. It seems like lately I've had more interaction with them and have been getting to know them a little more. I feel more comfortable around everyone, and it's been nice to talk and joke around with them when there's down time.
Now, speaking of down time, I usually read a book during my breaks at work. I seem to never have time to read when I'm home, so it has been taking me a while to get through each book I start. For the past couple of weeks, I've been reading "Wicked," the novel that served as the basis for the hit Broadway musical. I absolutely love the musical (I saw it twice), and have always wanted to read the book, but just never had the time to do so before this.
I am loving this book so far, even though I'm still in the beginning since it's such a large book. In some ways, it's really different from the Broadway show, but in other ways there are a lot of similarities. The book is definitely making me think of the show a lot (cue the musical numbers in my mind as each big plot point hits) and it's also making me miss Broadway and New York. But I guess if you can't go to Broadway, then reading this book would be the next best thing.
Some day I'll go back to New York for a visit, and when I do, I'll be sure to get tickets to a Broadway show while I'm there! If I had it my way, I'd also figure out how to get backstage passes for "Aladdin" or something while I was there, but I probably won't have a way to do that unless I become a huge author or something. Oh well, one can dream!
And speaking of dreams, it's time for me to get some rest!

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.
