Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
What a crazy night I had at work tonight! We had a kind of traffic jam happening, a chain reaction of things gone wrong, and my fellow Cast Members were starting to panic, but I solved everything in a matter of minutes without even needing to get a manager involved!
Even though my team members were confused, the Guests weren't really negatively impacted at all by the situation. Some Guests had to wait a couple of minutes to be helped, but other than that there wasn't really a huge problem as far as they could see. I got everyone where they needed to be (Guests and Cast Members) and kept the line moving as quickly as possible, and everything turned out well. It was great! I loved being able to take charge of the situation and resolve any problems.
The nice part about all of the excitement was that it woke us all up at the end of the night... The craziness took place in the last hour of the day, and after that we were all wide awake and ready for our drives home. I almost wished that we would have had some excitement earlier in the day when we first started getting tired.
I think that even though I'm not using my teacher training in my work at Disney, I still have that drive to want to lead people and guide them through difficult situations. Tonight was proof of that; if there was a problem in a kindergarten classroom, I would have handled it the same way, ensuring that everyone was comfortable and given specific directions so that we were all on the same page. Our complications at work are a bit more complex than problems in a kindergarten room, but you get the picture.
Speaking of kindergarten rooms though, I get to go into my sisters' school tomorrow for a kindergarten performance. I'm not thrilled about needing to be there early in the morning, but I think it will be pretty cute. Tomorrow is also my little brother's thirteenth birthday... I can't believe he's going to be a teenager! Wow! So it should be a pretty good day all around 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.

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.
