Obviously I am aware that you all know this. It’s pretty plain to see. I probably have several in fact. But there’s one that been poking at me a lot lately.
I have a Julia Child complex.
Stick with me here.
I don’t want to be famous, and I don’t particularly want to cook for a living or make television or really do any of the things she did. But I’m stumbling lately. And I’m floundering to find something I love and something I’m good at.
And let’s be honest, I’m a little odd like her. She was quirky and a little outside of the norm and goddamn if Paul Child didn’t love her. I want someone to find all of my weird shit extraordinary.
I feel like it’s not too much to ask and yet everything to ask. It’s part of the reason I’m in therapy twice a week. I’m searching on multiple fronts and I’m not yet ok with that.
At any rate, there it is. I want to be Julia Child. I said it.
