Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
It has certainly been a long week for me, and I’m guessing that many other people are experiencing the same overwhelming feelings as I am.
The week before Thanksgiving break always leaves me exhausted and fed up with school, because I just can’t wait to have some time at home with my family. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, because I love sitting down to watch the parade with my siblings and parents, and my sister and I get to help my mom cook. And I just have a few days off from school to unwind, which is really what I need before going into finals.
Even people who aren’t in school are probably feeling grateful that it’s the end of the week. Parents know that their kids are excited to be out of school, and they can’t wait to celebrate the holiday with the whole family home. People who work are ready for the day off, and to spend time with family. I guess I just love the holiday because family is really what it’s all about.
This has been such a busy week because teachers are overloading us with work to make sure everything gets done before the end of the semester. We’ll only have a week and a half of classes after Thanksgiving break, so it’s crunch time now! So many projects are due, and tests are coming, and it’s hard to prioritize everything. But just like every other semester, I know that I’ll get through it somehow.
Good luck to everyone else in this situation!

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.
