Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
My first day in costume at work was great! In my position, there's three main aspects of the job, so each day of training focuses on one of them. I feel like I understood everything for Day One and I'm ready to move on.
Where I work, I have to park in one location and take a bus to where I need to be. The other day, I met my trainer in the first location and she showed me how to get to the second location. Today, I had to ride the bus by myself, and I was so nervous that I wasn't going to get off at the right stop. The bus actually stopped a few times and let people off, and then at one stop the entire bus unloaded. I got so panicky because suddenly I was the only person still sitting there, but I knew that I wasn't at the right stop yet. I was extremely relieved when the next place the bus stopped at was exactly where I needed to get off!
I still have to get my timing down though, because I left for work so early this morning that I sat in my car for over an hour before needing to get on the bus. Meanwhile, I completely forgot my iPad at home, so I didn't even have anything to keep me busy! I pretty much just sat in the car watching the minutes tick by. Now I know to always have something with me, because I'd rather get to work two hours early than be rushing across the Park trying to get in on time.
I've been meeting so many nice people, although I can't remember who half of them are (there's too many names!), and I'm looking forward to getting to know them more as I continue to work with each of them. I'm still figuring out who works with me and who the managers are, but everyone seems helpful, and I'm also not the only new hire, so I'm sure everyone will be willing to remind me who to speak to about different situations.
Now I'm exhausted and off to bed.... I'm so happy when I come home from 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.
