I've been a bit elusive lately, haven't been to many openings or made appearances in group situations. I've caught up with a few people one on one, which is nice, actually. The change in weather has been bothering me a little, mainly that it's getting dark so so early. I enjoy autumn for days like Thursday where it was 24 and sunny and absolutely beautiful, but every day we get like that, feels like the last or something, and so there's a sadness in the air. Winter is kind of like an impending doom for me, I don't like to have to look towards cooler weather. I'm so jealous of everyone in the Northern Hemisphere who are now enjoying Spring and posting subsequent photos in Instagram. Sigh!
I had a busy day yesterday - work, then to a meeting after work and then to my Nanna's birthday dinner. Today, being Good Friday, has been the total opposite. I had the day off work which was amazing and much looked forward to, and all I wanted to do was go to Savers as I haven't been in ages. Other than like, sleeping, I find going to Savers to be one of the most relaxing things to do with my time. It's just about the endless browsing and the sort of methodical nature of the browsing that I love. BUT. Because today was Good Friday Savers wasn't open, literally the only day it's not open in the whole year other than Christmas day. So, boo! Then I was going to go into the studio and work but it was raining, and, well, I couldn't be bothered, so I ended up working at home. It was nice actually but dare I say it, a little bit boring! I never know what I want. Whenever I'm really busy all I wanna do is hang out at home, and vice versa. Ha ha. What I want is to want what I already have. Ya know!?
This is a rather odd post as I'm not really sure what it's even about. I think I might actually like, 'go out' tomorrow night, like go out and be social on a Saturday night. This is exceptionally rare for me. Gonna spend some more time mulling it over. Right now, I just turned on the TV for some company and I'm incredibly frustrated as this renovation show that is tearing down literally the most perfect 1970s bathroom, with green palm leaf tiles and fittings and a brown frosted glass shower door and it's like my dream and they're destroying it beyond recognition into a hideous cheapo ikea bathroom and it's saaaad :(
Hmm okay better wrap this up before I get more off track... Gonna leave y'all with this interview I did for Good Good Girl: http://goodgoodgirl.com/art-class-minna-gilligan/ I'm actually really happy with it, probably the most I've ever divulged in an interview, maybe. Anyway read it if ya want, the website is really fantastic - Melbourne based, feminist minded, funnnn :) See ya later X
|Also oh yeah I have been workin on stuff for Rookie Yearbook 3 - these are some backgrounds I did today|
