Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
I have used so many tissues today that I think I'll be finishing this box all by myself. Having a sore throat stinks. Losing your voice the day you're supposed to be teaching your first lesson is awful. But having a stuffed-up, then runny, then stuffed-up, then runny nose is definitely the worst part of getting a cold.
While I sit here doing another nebulizer treatment and feel miserable, I thought I would take a minute to write today's post. It's as good of a way to pass the time as any, and doing the nebulizer is super boring.
So I'm just wondering... Does anyone else feel like you never perform well until the people who should see you shine aren't there? That's what happened today. The teacher that I'm working with for student teaching was out today, so of course I did a much better job teaching than I did yesterday when she was watching me. I mean, I'm glad that my lesson went more smoothly today, but come on! Why couldn't I do a good job when the teacher was there?
Hopefully I'll feel better tomorrow and will do a good job again when she can see me.

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.
