The film Julie & Julia, which tells the parallel life tales of chef Julia Child and blogger Julie Powell, comes out today. Julie recently sat down with YumSugar and talked about her Julie/Julia project, where she cooked her way through Julia's cookbook and blogged about it. Julie previously worked a very corporate cubicle job in Manhattan and noted the project was about her "finding my vocation as a writer."
Sometimes a job is just a job, but when we're lucky, we find or create jobs and careers that also fulfill our artistic desires and skills. I'm excited to see the film because both Julie and Julia strike me as women who made inspiring careers for themselves. Are you lucky enough to do work that keeps your creative juices flowing?
