Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
For once, after I wrote about having an awesome work day yesterday, I had another great day without any major hiccups. Usually, if one day is amazing, the next day (while just as fun) will have some kind of problems, but everything went smoothly today as well!
In fact, the only issue I had with work today was that working meant that I couldn't watch "Big Brother" tonight! I guess this just means that I'll get to watch double the episodes on Thursday nights (or Fridays, since I usually work Thursdays as well and will probably be too tired for two hours of television when I get home). This also means that I won't be on social media very often anymore.
I guess it's kind of a good thing that I'll have to avoid social media, because sometimes I feel like I'm way too addicted to Facebook. Of course, when you have thirteen notifications, like I do tonight, it's hard to stay away, but luckily work and sleep will keep me occupied. Plus, I don't think anyone needs me that badly... the most important people in my life have my cell phone number to text me if there was something urgent, and I don't even have any messages. I can only imagine what I'm going to find when I finally check all of those notifications. I love social media because it's a way for me to stay connected to everyone, especially now that we're here in Florida and a lot of our family and friends are back in New York. At the same time though, I think that I spend way too much time scrolling through my home page just reading what everyone is doing all day long.
Speaking of social media (if blogging counts as a form of social media), today marks a year and eleven months of blogging! Wow, that's gone by quickly. In just a month I'll be celebrating that two year milestone. I remember that this time last year, I was thinking about how I would be living in Florida by the time I celebrated a year of blogging. I can't believe we've been living down here for almost a whole year already.
When I reach that two year blogging milestone, I think I may stop posting on a daily basis. This blog started out as a way to talk about foster care and get myself to write every day. Well, since we were moving, we had to stop doing foster care, and we haven't started up again down here (though you never know what the future may bring), so I feel like I rarely talk about foster care anymore. And yes, I write every day, but I feel like sometimes I post just to say that I posted that day, and that I'm not always writing something of substance. That's not beneficial for me, and it can't be very exciting for anyone to read. So I've been contemplating it for a while, and I think that once I finish out the two years of daily blogging, I may drop down to just two times a week or so. I don't know for sure yet, and that may change still, but that's what I'm leaning toward.
In the meantime, I'll continue to blog daily for the next month and we'll see how things go. But for right now, it's time to get to bed because I have another long day of work ahead of me tomorrow!
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. Don't hesitate to share your own stories with me or ask me questions about my life. 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.
