T. J. and Julia

MY HUSBAND, A FOOD AND WINE WRITER, and I, a writer, tag-along foodie, and social-worker-in-training, went to see "Julie and Julia" this afternoon.

In addition to enjoying the movie a lot, I was inspired. To cook, to bake, and to have more dinner parties.

And mostly to blog. Here. Regularly. Daily.

Now that I've quit my job (ironically my former editor was at the movie, too!), I will dedicate my time to all things social work-related. Now that I won't be writing and editing for a living, I will be freed up to write and edit on the side.

In a week I will begin my 2nd internship -- this one at the Department of Family and Children Services. This will be a brand-new life experience for me, and I want to share it with you, my fellow social work students and and professionals. Of course, I will honor the laws of confidentiality and concentrate on my experiences.

My hope, as always, is to share that I may help another. My other hope is that you, too, will share with me. Your experience. Your dreams. Your strengths. Your fears. Your joys.

I can't wait!

~Ms. T. J.


  1. This is exciting... I can't wait to hear about your new field placement, TJ! And to see the movie Julie and Julia. Hey, maybe your blog can be turned into a movie someday!

  2. I can't wait to see that one!
