Julie, Julia & Me

What is it you REALLY like to do?

I had a lovely time watching Julie and Julia. It's like I'm watching a part of myself on screen --- a chef and a writer wannabe. I was totally immersed with how both Julie and Julia had commissioned themselves to achieving their dreams---with Julia, getting her cookbook published and with Julie, getting to cook all of Julia Child recipes from 'the cookbook', making her blog famous with them, and making something unique happen with her not-so-special life. I dream of being both a chef and a writer someday. I thought about my dreams and a line Julie said in the movie had struck me which goes, " No one is a writer unless he gets his work published."

Make or break.


  1. Welcome to Blogging! We share many of the same interests. I love music and books and cooking and just about anything else. Looking forward to reading your blog.
    Have a blessed week!

  2. And movies, too, I guess! Thanks, Anita. I'm glad.;-)

  3. Kairen, I new to blogging too. I am an English Literature major, I too love reading. I recommend "One Hundred Years of Solitude" and "Love in the Time of Chlorea" by Gabriel Garcia-Marquez. John Steinbeck's "Grapes of Wrath" and "Cannery Row" are wonderful too. Both writers won the Nobel Prize for their work.

    I love writing, photography and knitting too. All my cousins can paint, draw, etc. So could my mom. I'm creative in completely different ways with crafts, needlework and sewing.

    I don't agree that you're not a writer until you've been published. Getting your work doesn't make you an author or writer. Numerous people think they are writers, but mark of a true writer is when your words touch someone's heart. I think writing is one of THE most creative endeavor on earth. My one exception to that would be writing music and songs.

  4. I wrote it to make a point about setting a goal. I was dreaming in a way...But, you make great sense with what you said and you earned my respect for it. Thanks, Rhyter!
