Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
I'm finally laying down after more than ten hours at work, and I'm exhausted. At the same time, though, I'm really happy with how today went.
I got to work in an area that I hadn't gotten much experience in last week, so it was great to learn more about this part of my job. Unfortunately, there was a lot of heavy lifting involved, but I figure if I keep this up, maybe I'll eventually build up my non-existent upper body strength!
The other downside to today's work was that I was kind of separated from the rest of my team. I had been looking forward to getting to know everyone more, and I didn't really have the opportunity to talk to any of them today. We spoke in passing as we were doing different things, but I'm anxious to be working side by side with all of them again. It seems like I'm working with really nice people so far, and the majority of the people I've spoken with appear to have a good sense of humor as well. I think that the more I get to talk with them all, the more I'll enjoy their company.
There also wasn't a lot of Guest interaction for me today, which I definitely missed as well. But the few times that I did have the opportunity to speak with Guests was great. Everyone seems to be in the holiday spirit, which makes a long and difficult shift a little easier to get through. I don't think there's a better place to spend the holiday season than in Disney World, and I'm sure that most of the Guests that are there this week would agree. Of course, I'd love to be visiting the Parks instead of working in one location every day, but at least I'm there... I'll be able to say that I spent Christmas Eve in Disney World. That's amazing!
Tomorrow I'm working the longest shift I've ever worked: 12 hours! That doesn't even include driving time, or the time it takes for me to get from the parking lot by bus to my location. It's going to be crazy! Part of me is really excited, and then part of me is scared to death. I just hope that my feet make it through the day... I may end up crawling back to my car after leaving work.
Thank you so much for your continued support! I look forward to sharing more stories about my experience with foster care, and hopefully hearing from readers who have questions or similar stories to share. I'm always willing to answer questions and hear about other experiences! 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.
