Jason and I went to see the movie Julie and Julia last night. Loved it!!!! It's about a married woman, Julie, in her late twenties who hates her job and doesn't know where her life is headed. She decides that she needs something to do to add direction and purpose to her life. (Something I have been thinking about a lot lately.) Julie has an obsession with Julia Child. (I do a mean Julia Child impression, ask Grandma Laura.) Julie decides to cook her way through the next year by cooking all the recipes in Julia Child's cookbook 'Mastering the Art of French Cooking' and blogging about it.

This got me thinking....what the heck am I doing with my life. This is probably not a great thing to contemplate at the moment considering the current circumstances that surround my in Canada away from my family and friends, recently having finished my Masters degree in which I can't do a thing with because I am not legally allowed to work in Canada. That being said, I still need something to give me direction. Something to blog about that will be of interest to people, or something that will give me a release. I can't keep doing what I have been doing.....sitting around our townhome surfing the web and sleeping. I could do what Julie from the movie did and cook my way through a cookbook, but groceries are so damn expensive here I would be in debt after the first week.

So, I'm looking for ideas. What do you do that gives direction to your life? Please comment with your ideas. I know there are more of you that read this blog than I thought! Comment pleeeeease!!!!


  1. This sounds like a great idea... Here are my thoughts about what you could blog about..

    -comment about something else on the web/something you read
    -talk about an event
    -travel to a place in town you've never been and comment on it
    -Make random lists

    That's all I can think of right now. :)

  2. Jet Setting across America in a month might give you some topics.
